I learned how to reset Ubuntu Linux today (pushes up glasses). I’m a windows user and not a programmer, so Linux has always been a little intimidating. I’m absolutely the sort to just copy and paste commands from forums (which seems like the way lots of people are about programming?)

I’m beginning to build a personal Toronto yelp for myself in Notion. Maybe I’ll share it at some point.

I re-upped my subscription to Bike Share Toronto. I didn’t think I would, because I haven’t used it a ton this year. But they added a tack 3 minutes from my apartment instead of 10, and now the Danforth is one giant bike highway, so my usage went up. They’ve also added ebikes and they’ll likely add more. There is remarkable utility to these things that you don’t figure until you’re already sold, which isn’t great for gathering new customers. I own a bike. I love my bike. But my bike is a big thing that needs to be locked up when I’m out, and that anxiety about it being stolen has never dissipated. Using a bike that you can forget about the second you’re done with that particular ride, that’s a feeling of relief.

We don’t take as many trips as we used to. When we were younger, we’d travel every year or twice a year. But it’s been a few years since we did anything. We were planning on going to Italy this month, but obviously that’s out. Now it’s next year. None of this was supposed to happen. Definitely feeling some woe today on that one.
