I went down the rabbit hole of updating my Instagram (the people I follow mostly). I used to use it to post daily pictures as part of a Project 365. Then in 2022 I switched to doing a Project 52 and posted pictures weekly on my (Wordpress) blog instead of through Instagram. So the last pictures I posted were from early 2022 and they reminded me what shit years 2021 and 2022 were. Our family literally went through death and destruction.
But life muddles onward. We cried, we laughed, we remembered, and we helped one another as best we could. And now, things are in a much better place. Shit will happen again, that's life. And it won't be easy, that's emotions. But we'll muddle onward, that's humanity.
I track what I read in Goodreads, but I wanted to start writing a little more about each book and keep track by the month on this blog. Goodreads is nice for the annual challenge, but I don't really use the social aspect as much as I could/should.
I have a lot of friends from High School that I follow on Facebook. Since the election in November 2020, I've unfriended quite a few of them who have turned nasty. I'm all for freedom of speech and different viewpoints, but sometimes it crosses a line into pure hatred or even threats. And I didn't realize how many of my old friends subscribed to ideals I find selfish, unkind, and archaic.
I realized last week that my driver's license had expired in October 2020. At the time, the DMVs were shut down and they had a 60 day extension for licenses expiring. Clearly I was way past that window of opportunity now.
I've subscribed to YouTube Music (previously Google Play Music) for years. One of my favorite things to do is ask my Google Home device to play a specific song that I want to hear, then it creates a playlist based on similar music. I'm assuming their algorithm includes other songs I've liked in the genre as well as pulling songs most played by other users.
