this rings so true omg "Contrary to common belief, the volume of face-to-face interaction decreased significantly (approx. 70%) in [two field studies transitions to open office plans], with an associated increase in electronic interaction. In short, rather than prompting increasingly vibrant face-to-face collaboration, open architecture appeared to trigger a natural human response to socially withdraw from officemates and interact instead over email and IM." http://rstb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/373/1753/20170239
Life has gotten…?
…as of late.
I'm hoping things cool down soon so I can get back to music. I miss my studio.
"... and everything's horrible and there's nothing we can do."
"Hold on," she said. She stepped off the path to pick up a discarded water bottle.
"What are you doing?" he asked.
"There's a recycling bin a bit further up."
"Oh. Anyway, we're so powerless-"
"Let's do what we can."

What do you call that weird feeling you get when you suddenly come out of VR?
Neice got me the most awesome birthday present and I'm going to take selfies after I wipe the drool off my face and wake up a bit.
It's my birthday tomorrow (the 23rd).
Wish me luck on my interview today. If all goes well I may be coming back to the bay area.
I'm absolutely tearing my way through #HyruleWarriors, a game I own and couldn't get into on the Wii U that I have apparently dumped over 70 hours into since launch on the Switch.
I'm just a little miffed that you can't adjust the split screen or play wireless co-op, because having that extra-wide view of the camera pointed at the floor makes it really difficult to see where I'm going.

I answered the door in my workout clothes and the delivery person called me "sir" and then got really rude when I said something about it.
At least I have a job interview on Tuesday.
🤞 Fingers crossed, I'm hoping I can leave LA very very soon.
Good morning, Mastodon.
Me, trying to listen to music: "Why isn't this music buffering properly?"
Toontrack Product Manager: 12.1GB / 55.6GB (14.9MB/s)
Me: Oh yeah... oh I should download that game I'm supposed to be working on. *starts download*
Me: Wait... *stares at 50MB download taking minutes to finish*
Griping about #allergies, soap recommendation request Show more
Apparently I can never use soap and I'm a little frustrated about that.
99.9% of soaps, shampoos, detergents, and basically anything you use to clean something, contain coconut.
Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate, Cocamide, Cocamidapropyl Betain, Coconut Oil...
I could use glycerin soap, but 99% of glycerin is sourced from coconuts.
I would really love to wash myself without scrubbing allergens all over me.
food ment Show more
i put (unsalted in-shell) peanuts out on my patio a few times a week for the neighborhood crows
now they come caw at me sometimes when theres no peanuts out and it makes me so happy bc it means they know the peanuts are for them and they dont feel like they have to sneak them or like im gonna jump at them or something
they still wont eat with me watching but i have a window film that works well for letting me see out without them seeing in so i can watch without making them uneasy :3
Since my reaction to being startled by a speaker last night was to bark at it I thought I'd list some awesome dog facts about me:
• Bark at the speaker.
• Does not understand pointing.
• My leg will kick uncontrollably if you give me tummy pets.
• Wag my butt when I get really excited.
• Knock things over from wagging too hard.
• "Hey, is this bacon?!" as I'm eating unidentified food off a plate someone left in their room for an indeterminate period of time.
• 192cm tall and I want to sit in your lap.
