It is Monday and Melanie, over at Sparks from a Combustible Mind, has issued her Share Your World challenge. Today, she asks:
What do you do to get rid of stress?
I don’t really have a lot of stress, Even if I am in a stressful situation, if I can’t do anything about it then I tend not to stress about things. My work background required me to be clear-headed, when all around me were losing theirs.
Things that are particularly relaxing can include watching comedy on tv, or listening to music. There is the computer, of course, including blogging. I wouldn’t even do that if it wasn’t also relaxing. I have a computer game called Football Manager (that’s football with round balls) which I fire up every now and again.
In the past people were buried with the items they would need in the afterlife, what would you want buried with you so you could use it in the afterlife?
That’s easy. My computer. But there better be good Wi-fi down there!
What’s the opposite of a koala? (this is strictly for fun. I know what I came up with as an answer, but it was nonsensical. Alaok. See? It’s okay to pass on this one too if you want)
In the fires, Australia lost vast amounts of its indigenous wildlife, including koalas. So, by opposite, I’m trying to think of an animal which actually thrived during the fires. Scott Morrison? Okay, maybe thrived is the wrong word? Didn’t give a shit?
Sorry, Melanie, not quite as light-hearted as you said.
What’s the creepiest tech out there? (My interpretation of “tech” is app or program. If you know what “tech” is supposed to mean, hey! Great! Educate us.
Facial Recognition technology. None of the tekkies think it is good enough yet, but it is being rolled out nevertheless. I wonder how long before somebody tries to convict someone, using this flaky technology? Minority Report.
What method are you using to find your smile right now? Please explain in detail so others might utilize the same ideas. Some bloggers have shared a daily (weekly sometimes) method that they are using to keep their spirits up right now. I’d love to hear from anyone who does and is successful at it! Have a great week and stay safe!
Mostly, see my first answer. I am watching The Simpsons every evening which, let’s face it, is utter crap. But at least it is better than the soap opera it has replaced! I’m using WordPress more, trying to respond to a few more posts than usual, this being one of them. When I just posted a few hours ago, WordPress said I was on a 32-day streak. Under normal circumstances, it would horrify me that I had nothing more important to do.
I am watching the news I always used to watch – a roundup of the day’s events in a single 1-hour evening slot, and trying to ignore all news programmes besides this. Actually, if you’re looking for a tip, limit your news intake.
