Takes me back to childhood in my small hometown. Rarely ever see them here.

I cannot look at this preview image from an article about coronavirus and not see a traced drawing of Jackie Chan under that mask.

I am a weak and miserable and pitiful thing but at least I have a cat to snuggle

Maybe something to do with the particular camera app I'm using? Maybe a permissions issue?

Anyway I never use iNat "in the field", I prefer to take a whole bunch of photos then sit down and sort through them later (esp bc it's usually macro), so yeah 😐

for some reason isn't grabbing location & date info from my photos so I guess I'm just...never using it again ¯\_(._.)_/¯

Dream journal: needing to get the tickets to rebook a flight, but couldn't find dorm/hotel room bc they had changed the room numbers, so had to go through that customer service too; my sister and I stumbling across a cute little community garden while walking down West Queen West, but the ppl in it weren't physically distancing enough; taking a shower (in the middle of the living room?) but couldn't find my shampoo; group Minecraft server photo in the rain

my social distancing technique is, as usual, acting so weird people naturally avoid me
