Dumb Little Tasks

When discussing losing weight on a podcast I listen to, Shop Talk, one of the co-hosts mentioned that people generally recommend a food log, and the other responded: "My whole life is dumb little tasks like this, like I need one more." If that doesn't describe my whole life I don't know what does. That's the stuff I need to find and automate instead of piling more on.

Those spotlight photos on the login screen on Windows 10 highlight some really beautiful places on the globe...

... but seeing them makes me sad that I'm where I am instead of somewhere more beautiful. It's a weird feeling, because I love where I live and it's a vacation destination in its own right, but most days I'm not in the vacation parts of it. I'm in the concrete jungle part of it, and it just doesn't compare. I think I'm feeling a little bit of "the grass is always greener" though. I really do love it here. Thanks for the existential crisis, Microsoft.

Every job wants someone who is "passionate"

I don't think that's me. I was reading a job ad and when I read that they wanted someone passionate I imagined myself sitting in an interview and being asked the question, "What are you passionate about?" and I couldn't answer the question. Normally in these imaginary conversations in my head I'm formatting an answer before the question even comes up but today I drew a blank. Am I so jaded that I'm not passionate about anything anymore? I have so many things to do that I don't have time to be passionate about any one thing. I'm trying to put a little time into a lot of things and just break even. Maybe that's why I'm having so much trouble finding a job: I don't have one thing that I love anymore. Fuck. I guess I need to trim down some of the things I'm doing.
