I ended up getting myself a new keyoard for home cause I needed to bring my other one to work. Still waiting on the mouse to get here, but I'm really enjoying the feel of typing on it. It's not anything fancy, one of those pseudo mechanical keyboard hybrid things. Typing feels good on it, since I'm really only going to use it for that reason. Maybe a lil gaming, but I've retired from my gaming days lol. Besides, I don't play anything intensive where clicking a button a microsecond off would destroy me, so it really doesn't matter that much.
Right now I'm super excited cause I got myself the vinyl reprint of Aqua's Aquarium and it's FUCKIN NEON YELLOW. HOW FUCKIN COOL IS THAT?! It's my all time favorite album lol I had to of listened to this at least 1000 times as a child to the point where the CD stopped working cause it was scratched to oblivion. I'll treat the vinyl much better now, I promise (╥ω╥). My vinyl collection is currently:
I wanna see if I can get winamp working on my computer sometime (or something like it) cause I'm really nostalgic for the time I was able to customize my media player. I hate how music streaming pretty much killed any and all customization. And there's so many fun ones I've stumbled across while going through the ruins of archived sites. Reject modernity blah blah blah the nerd on neocities says.

- card pull: Ten of Swords (reversed)
I got a new hamster ヽ(o^ ^o)ﾉ [photo of him]. I named him Pippin (note: I am not super into LOTR, but I am really into the aesthetics of The Shire and hobbits are basically hamsters anyway sooo...). I'm hoping over the winter I can build a new cage. The one I have now is hodgepodged together from two billy bookcase extensions, but I found a really good tutorial on how to make something less long using Ikea parts. Maybe I'll share my progress with that here.
I'm feeling less stuck this year than I did this time last year. Maybe I've just decided to stop caring as much. I'm sure that's a defence mechanism, honestly. Not much has gotten better job-wise, but I guess I feel like if I just live in the present and not think too much about the bullshit it'll work out. One day at a time.
I really wish I could just be a stay-at-home-whatever, but that doesn't seem like it'll be an option until I retire...just 25 more years T_T.
P.S. I just realized I've had this site for a year now (✧∀✧)/
