    Thanks. I did some minimal research after that post last night and found out that YT Music Premium really doesn't have podcasts to speak of other than whatever video pods are on YT itself. That's a deal breaker for me, oh well. I wish YT would offer a stand alone sub for like $5/mo that simply just took out video ads. That's the portion of YT Premium I really want.

    I’ll preface this with I enjoy gathering with friends etc. However something I miss about the peak pandemic days was the lack of party planning pressure and how exhausting December can be. A ton of my friends have birthdays in December including myself. Add in holiday parties and it’s too much. It just turns into everyone trying to squeeze everything in (gets a little competitive) and doesn’t stop until after New Year’s.

    I agree
    I first tried my hand at making homemade sausage during covid and made more that holiday season than I have total since
    Made gift boxes for lots of family and neighbors with homemade sausage, jerky, and smoked cheese that year. Have wanted to do it again every year but just don't have the time

    Not to be a Shawn bitch about work itt but - Work rant that Ive probably made before but NSIAP

    It's business plan season and fucking hate it. Basically we have to create a business plan and sales forecast on how we plan to hit and exceed quota, discuss areas of improvement, stretch goals. A bunch of corporate bullshit. It's like cramming to put together a senior project. Takes several hours to put together, about 90 minutes to present.

    Then it's never spoken of or referred to again. It's such a waste of time. Kill me. Im at 187% of quota this year. I dont think Ive been less than 137% in my time here except for the pandemic year. I should be exempt. I want star treatment goddammit lol.

    Internet question.

    Currently in Mexico with very good internet, or it was yesterday. I have 4 devices - Ipad, Iphone, two computers (work and personal). The internet works great on all devices except my work computer.

    When I login to the same network with my work computer, it connects, but says no internet. But I'm literally posting this from my phone that's connected to the same network.

    I hate technology. The fuck would cause this?
