May 7, 21: Routine, Taxes, Napping, Hive Loans Punt, Laps, and Games
Made it all the way to six this morning, but still another hour short. 😭. The past two days have been rough getting motivated, but I did get some work done despite crashing out in the afternoon.
Bitcoin and ETH had a slight pullback, but not by much, just enough to turn red for a while and then we’re on the way up again. ETH Hit $3600! Printing new all time highs by the day! Still holding my exit target of $10k, though...not firing until I see the whites of their eyes.
I got the taxes done the day before yesterday, but they were still nagging at me that I hadn’t done all the crypto accounting properly. Went back and checked last year’s and I’d already declared against those buys. That meant I had to go through and fix all of it which ended up changing basically everything else, both fed and state. 😡
Got them done, struggled with the printer for a while because it didn’t want to install the correct drivers, but finally got them printed out and set to go. Ended up having to pay the fed but got a refund on the state, so we came out positive overall, get like $150 back (interest free loan to the government - good deal for them).
Spent time chatting over on Discord and FOMOed into Hive loans:
It’s a punt, and not sure if 25 is really going to be enough to see any kind of return, but it’s a moderate risk of only $15, so why not give it a shot...could be YUGE and would kick myself for not getting in (at least a little) early on.
Went down and mailed the taxes, grabbed a sandwich for lunch, and I was pretty much toast. I put on a movie, fell asleep two minutes in, woke up when it ended and started it over...killed the day, but a few relatively good hours of sleep caught up.
Did laps around the house to finish my steps for the day and keep the streak alive and then watched a little tube with the wife. Started watching a new show: Jupiter’s Legacy I think it’s called. Seems alright, just the first few episodes in and they’re jumping back and forth in time, so I’m a little confused, but not too bad otherwise.
Have to be honest, been really thinking about (and half-ass trying) to quit smoking. I’ve been having to reduce my health stat because my throat/sinus/ear has been bugging me bad for like four or five days at least. Kinda’ worries me, and doesn’t feel good... and then the addiction kicks in. Throw on top that my rolling machine spits out completely screwed up cigarettes frustrating me constantly and it’s yet another reason...
Still less than a third of the income I should be getting on dShitty, but at least today wasn’t the slap in the face that yesterday was...sent me .001 SIM to tell me they aren’t sending me any, beautiful!
I still keep just amassing everything to Solairitas, but it’s unlikely I’m ever going to see an increase in the hodling income, other players just have too big an advantage.
Not sure what’s going on with Holybread. I’ve just not been able to get my arena wins. 😭 Even worse is that I’ve been losing by rediculously tiny fractions.
Got pushed back to fourth and simply could not regain any ground. Still, not bad I suppose 4/7 🤣
Only had one ingredient left to get on CryptoBrewmaster but the server was under maintenance when I tried to check, and then I didn’t really think about it again all day. Have to wait until tomorrow, I guess.
Played a few more rounds of Splinterlands today. As I had suspected, playing in Diamond sucks balls (and not in a good way) and I regret having advanced.
Didn’t take me too long before I got frustrated and quit.
I was able to complete the Dragon quest from yesterday. Got some solid rewards today! 🤩 A couple rare and a gold plus a nice chunk of DEC:
