What's making me happy
Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
I listened to him recently on the Smartless podcast and just had a smile on my face the whole time.
In a world where fame seems to be disconnected from excellence (never thought I would drop some Drake lyrics on my blog), it was refreshing to hear some smartness.
He makes complicated ideas not so much and he makes you laugh while you think which is very helpful when he talks about something like astrophysics.
Also, hearing how he also looks up at the night sky wondering how and why took me back to my stargazing days when I would look up and also have many questions like why am I sleeping on a roof.
What's not making me happy
Not being able to disconnect from work while I have the week off.
I had to help put out a few fires and I am not sure how I feel about it.
We are not doing much so I don't mind helping out but I am also on vacation.
It also made me think I would do pretty bad at this digital challenge.
24 hours without devices.
Could you do it?
Thank you for all of the birthday wishes for Mrs. Shife.
We had a good day and capped it off by going out to eat at one of our favorite places.
I might have indulged myself a little too much because I started a FODMAP diet the next day.
I have dealt with digestive issues like bloating, stomach pain, gas and other fun things for way too long and my doctor suggested I give it a shot.
Relationships are difficult.
Even more so when you are ready to move on from them.
Something happened that brought back some old acquaintances into my circle and I realized that I really didn't miss them.
I am feeling guilty for having those feelings because at one point we were closer.
But it has been a long time since I have spent time with some of these dudes and I am in a different place in my life.
Not a fan of feelings sometimes.

I will try and do better.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
