[Applied Self-Confidence] Advance Within Yourself

I was asked recently about my long-term plans within the company by my supervisor. I’m in a stressful, high turn-over role where people often get promoted into other roles. I said I was going to be staying put for right now to focus on my health. I’d rather advance myself than advance my career within any company, just because my role within the company can change suddenly, but my own resilience should be less fickle.

[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 15 {217.0} “Physical Therapy Endurance, Part 11”

With two physical therapy sessions left before being discharged with a clean bill of health, in regards to my neck strain-induced mindbender headaches, the focus now is building endurance by practicing some of the more difficult stretches. I’ve been doing well with the more resistant bands and longer stretch times. When I look at myself in the mirror, I’ll either catch myself in bad posture and correct it sooner, or, I’m already in good posture.

[The Story] Characters I Like

The characters I like most represent one of two character archetypes: characters that either learn about some kind of personality trait about themselves, or, help serve as plot surrogates for some kind of greater theme. Not every character tends to be that lofty, but when I like the characters for more than just a witty line or aesthetic, it typically tends to be something deeper like that. How about John and Trishna in “The Story?”

[Downsizing Zeal] Three Empty Shelves

Owing to my efforts in selling off all the old computers that I had collecting dust, now I nearly have three empty shelves of free space available for me to… not fill with anything particular. I’m sure within the week, I’ll find some things to fill them with, but for now, I just wanted to write about the feeling of having those empty shelves and how that represents a positive change in my decluttering mindset.

[The Story] Characters I Dislike

“My favorite characters stand up for some kind of moral but have a willingness to work through defeat, whereas my least favorite characters are fool-hearted and don’t have cool outfits.[1]” We broadly discussed some of my favorite character traits last time. Let’s continue with this question: will there be characters I completely dislike in “The Story?” It would seem like a given that John and Trishna would have to face these sorts of characters, right?

[Media Meandry] Pretty Unread Bookshelf

The list of books I want to read are not only out in the open for me to view daily, they’re also aesthetically pleasing enough where it’s subtle encouragement to keep me reading through even the sloggiest of boring books. If there’s a book that I’m lacking motivation to finish, seeing the shelf of books I want to read is subtle encouragement to finish the book or stop reading it. It’s been effective so far!

[Tripping On…] Assorted Home Remedies

Toward the end of my near-daily, three-month mindbender headache trip that became the foundation for this treatise on the American Healthcare System, I started receiving many ideas for what could have been causing my headaches that ended up being ergonomic and spinal in origin. Although I appreciated all of them, I wasn’t going to pierce my ears and buy some spices to exorcise the headache demons, even if there were days where I was close.
