Why do trees keep happening? — Eukaryote Writes

how do return to work after essentially shutting down for a pandemic, how to clear worksites to remain safe, how to deal with jobsites that might be in the middle of looting zone during a time of civil unrest.

This reminds me a lot of the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini . He writes about trying to keep his art and studio going during the bubonic plague, during war and civil unrest. The good news, Drew, is that I'm pretty sure this makes you a Renaissance Man. The bad news is that, lovely art aside, the Renaissance kinda sucked to live through.

Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

Hey, self-employed people, you should do this:

That's great that more funds are available! (I'm still working more than 40 hours a week and feel like I should just leave that grant money for people who need it.)

Unfortunately, it seems to be out of money for the second time. I hope they re-up it.

"What kind of magical sunshine and lollipop world do you live in? Because you need to be medicated."-SFist

Ugh. I looked this up in early April but I guess I misread the tax deadline extension info wrong and 2021 estimated taxes were still due on April 15th, not on May 17th like everything else. And I was waiting to figure out what the estimated should be once I filed and paid 2020, which I just did. But now apparently I'm one month late with the estimated taxes. Fuck. I feel so stupid since I had the money and could have paid this back then. And I swear I double checked this. Grrr aargh.
