I can hear a mourning dove outside my window! They make a sad, sleepy "hoo…hoo, hoo, hoo" noise.
Takes me back to childhood in my small hometown. Rarely ever see them here.

I bought the COVID-19 bundle from Humble Bundle. The titles listed are the games on Steam I already have/dont want. If you want one of them, DM me the number or title you want and I'll send you the gift link! One game per person for now, if you list multiple I'll assume they're in order of preference. I'll update this thread as games are claimed.

Maybe not a bad thing to start using the app separately. Photos for identification often are quite different from photos taken for, like, artistic value
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 #iNaturalist 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
