Hospitals usually allow chaplains of other flavors. I work at a Methodist Hospital and am not Methodist. Also, MN isn't home, Texas is. 🤷‍♂️

 

You need to live beneath the surface in a nice, sensible subterranean city.

No outdoor compressors. What I don't know is where the intake is. Meh, it's not a big risk, I guess, but there are a fair number of known cases of it spreading via air ducts. More in large commercial spaces, true; apartments are probably not a big deal. I will miss fresh air, though.

 

Hot and humid weather is enough to may anyone cranky. I hope you can use your A/C.

 

I expect to be missing fresh air for the next several months, even if the weather is nice. Elf is seriously allergic to something that is blooming right now. We are keeping the house closed up and A/C on even on nice days. When I want to get warm and enjoy fresh air, I go sit out on the porch.

 

Have you tried staying up until all hours playing computer games? That seems to be the first choice Nerd solution to too much stress. :devilish:

Because it works!

 

For some of us at least. :)

I cannot express how the-opposite-of-relaxing I find computer games. You might as well inject pure stress into my veins. Like, kill me now.

Some types of games have this effect on me, and it seems to be connected entirely to the gameplay. A shooter takes hours to relax from. On the other hand, Persona 5 Royal that I'm playing right now, is beautiful escapism and relaxation. (It doesn't hurt that the plot gradually seems to be about resisting a corrupted government by standing up for the rights of the weak and helpless... because in the game, I'm winning. :)

 

But yes, there is a reason I said it works for some of us.

I apologize for making such a cringe-worthy suggestion. I find that games I like get my brain hooked and I find it hard to let go. Not great for going to bed on time or going to sleep. Good for distraction from other issues, but maybe not a good trade-off on the whole.

 

For actual relaxation, I turn to fiber arts. Spinning is very soothing. Repetitive manual activity of some sort is good. Pleasant texture and color for bonus points.
