It is already MAY, WOW!
So, I’ve found the perfect place to live in Redmond, WA. It’s a LEED Platinum certified apartment, near Marymoor park! I applied to be in the Marymoor Community Garden and we will see how that goes, there is a waiting list, but I’ve paid and signed up. The rest of the month is packing and downsizing and Marie Kondo’ing shit out of my life!
Let’s get to the jams for the month:

April was of course, another wild month. Preparing to move during a pandemic. Getting used to this new way of living. Continuing to bunker down and hulk up on supplies. Strange way of life. Working remotely, doctors appointments, improving self care and mental health, helping those you love. Finding out what really matters in life.
Moving from Bellevue, WA to Redmond, WA in May.
March, a month of togetherness if you are lucky enough. Hold on to what you have. Protect it with love and good energy. A chance to reach new culinary feats at home. Catching up on movies and shows.
Looking forward to planning the PCNSA study focus this year, then back to Cisco certification re-up after that.
Listened to a ton of music. Putting together an April playlist this coming week. I am a bit behind. Busy month with all this extra pandemic stuff.
February has already been a freaking blast. I drank Kopi Luwak, time is flying by. We have a TON of music on the list.
I also clocked my screen time and music totality this month. I listen to over 40 hours of music a week, and use my phone 5 hours a day. Not bragging but that is more than I thought… (gulp)
In a week or so, I fly to Los Angeles to visit my friends, and see POPPY live in concert! HELL YEA.
Counter-Strike is still alive, it hit its top all time concurrent users. Over 900k at once. I continue to play with a single friend. LF3M for COMP. HIT ME UP
