  2. **SPOOF** Sweet merciful barbecued baby Jesus! How'd I get back here? Seems when things start a changin I get an ictchin to visit my ol' stompin grounds 'ere and set up shop for a new challenge. So last challenge I had just moved to a new apartment, gotten begrudgingly complacent at my desk job, doomsday prepped for the onslaught of the holidays, and goodness knows what else... because that was half a year ago. And things move fast in my plain of existence. Because now I've got a new job. No longer am I confined to a cubicle nine-to-five that I promised myself in high school I'd rather commit sepuku than settle for. No longer will I be at the bottom of the totem pole being paid pennies for what a robot could do if it weren't for the fact that most companies are run by slow muggles that are too busy cleaning up after the messes of one another to press the skynet button. No longer shall I dress myself in an occupational costume, or prattle on with the convoluted business rules as I prostrate myself to the fake social niceties. For now I am... in the IT field. . That's right I'm the doctor dolittle of computers. That cloud you throw your precious data into? It's physical. And I get to dig around in it. Well... not really. I just do some hoodoo voodoo and replace damaged parts of the borganism so it's mechanical mind continues whirling though the cosmos of time. Ok... enough with waxing poetry. On to the challenge. I've got an odd new schedule. It's four days of 10hr shifts and a three day weekend. Don't get me wrong, it beats the muggle standard. But the work days are so crammed that there is no time for dilly dally. It's straight home, walk the dog, eat dinner, unwind for at max an hour, pass out, rinse and repeat. And a three day weekend seems like plenty of time to kill except the chores take the remainder of the space. The living space cleaning and maintenance, the meal prepping, grocery shopping, managing virtual social meetings, planning world domination. You know... normy stuff. This makes me wonder if I should bite the bullet and find myself a nice girl. I can wear the corduroy pants in the relationship for four days and a sarong on alternating days. And we can make beautiful food together. Korra's Automated Abode Challenge Tracking Food Tracking food can be hard and plugging in all that data day after day can be tedious. So why not automate it with meal prepping? I've got 6lbs of pork tenderloin and more chicken than I can shake a stick at ready to go. And who knows? With all the nutrition info coming in, I can squeeze some healthy snack time goodies in there to fill in the gaps Stretching With my new job I'm on my feet most of the day and walking here and there finishing up tasks so I don't have to worry about a step goal. And my dog demands a walk every two hours so he can visit his doggy friends at the apartments that like to chill on the balcony. But the back does tend to get tight at work. So I'll be doing stretches at certain intervals through the day and maybe some yoga during the weekend to spice things up. Lifestyle Staying present and checking in is always good. It keeps one from falling back into bad habits that ultimately lead to a downward spiral to a deep dark hole that at that point is not worth climbing out of. So I'll do journaling in the evenings to check in on how the day went, what went good, what didn't go well, and how things can be their best tomorrow. And if the urge to download another soul sucking empty void of a smartphone game crosses my mind I know to grab that journal and scribble like the dickens. If journaling doesn't help then meditation always does. I think I one time connected with the universe and it felt the way all the religious people describe the feeling of meeting their deities. So going for those feelings seems like a good cure all. I'm not quite sure what steps to take after you've been surrounded by people for long periods of the day and not interacting with them in a way to scratch the human social need and thus your mind tries filling in those gaps with an imaginary friend (usually from a well watched tv show or video game). Do you engage with that part of your conscious and wax and wane philosophy of the need for human connection in a quasi attempt to fill that void?
