When you feel burnt out from your daily grind, a short vacation can be rejuvenating. My train ride north two weeks was one such get-away. On my way up to the quiet parcel in the middle of bum-fuck-nowhere New Mexico, my mind was shrouded in an eerie mist of negativity. On my way back down south, I was much more content with myself. It was just a weekend away from my city but it was just enough of a change of scenery to reboot my attitude.
“The Game Awards 2019 (Source: GameSpot) – The Game Awards happened tonight, December 12th, live from Los Angeles, California. In case you missed it, The Game Awards streamed live on YouTube and was hosted by the show’s creator, Geoff Keighley. The most notable moments include: The brand new Xbox console, Xbox Series X, trailer, The Muppets . . .”
Creamy, smooth, muted hints of coffee, and superb drinkability – this stout is Tractor Brewing‘s coup de grace (if you like stouts).
A smooth coffee-flavored, alcoholic beverage seems perfect for a Friday night as a lone guitarist provides some euphoric background tunes. I may have been a little harsh in my last review of Tractor, one cannot judge a brewery by on beer. It’s a good place to relax after a busy day at work serving fried food to fat Americans, a place where nostalgic millennials can go to lament about their lost hopes and forgotten dreams.
Happy holidays, you degenerate pig fuckers. Be safe out there.
“The microtransaction side of Destiny 2 known as Eververse has had a complicated history ever since it was first introduced in the first game. Its addition post-launch and periods of time, especially at the launch of Destiny 2, when it felt as though really good content was locked behind its paywall among other issues have left many players feeling slighted by Bungie’s implementation of Eververse that has not always appeared very player-friendly. . . .”
Happy Friday, people. It feels good to be productive after a vacation, be it your day job hustle or your side hustle, and I’m in an especially good mood considering I get paid today. 🙂
It’s also easy to get caught up in your hustle which is why it’s important to take some time every day to take care of your self and relieve some stress; working is virtuous but not if you forget to live as well. Being health conscious includes your mental health as well as physical health (perhaps more so) so remember budget time for yourself to avoid burning out.
Personally, I like putting on some lo-fi music in the evening when I’m unwinding from my day job at Wingstop. There are several channels to choose from on YouTube but lately, I’ve been tuning in to some synthwave.
I remember when the year 2020 was the quintessential year for futuristic landscapes in science-fiction. Now, that year is less than a month away. For myself, it will be the year I turn thirty.
When I was a kid, I thought thirty years of age was “old as fuck” (I still jokingly describe that age as such). In all seriousness, thirty can be as young as twenty for modern humans considering how long we can live today and the fact that medical science will only improve our lifespans in the future (disregarding a potential apocalypse that sets our civilization back by centuries). Statistically speaking (assuming that you take care of yourself), thirty-year-olds today are less than halfway through our total lifespan. We have MORE time today to get started doing what we love to do.
Life is what you make it so, what are you waiting for?
Albuquerque gets a negative reputation from news media pessimistic attitudes and too few people overlook the city’s gems. From my own experience, the best neighborhood in the city is Nob Hill (surrounding the University of New Mexico) with a stretch of Central Avenue that caters to nightlife entertainment and chill brew hipsters. The Zinc Bar is just one of the many hangouts where you can order a beer, listen to some guitar strumming, and forget about life’s troubles for a while.
