Take a breath…

and try not to lose your shit.

This week was a real test and testament to my Stoic practice. On Monday, the GMC decided that headlights are for losers. So I got to spend most of the day trying to figure out why the headlights weren’t working. I got the battery checked, and it was low, so I bought a new one.

That wasn’t the problem.

I bought a fuse checker and checked the fuses. Also not the problem.

It couldn’t possibly be the bulbs because I just replaced them… a few **cough**’s ago. But I checked them anyway.

That was the problem. 

So $325 and two days later, I fixed the problem. All without losing my proverbial shit… mostly.

There was no trying, only doing. Thanks, Yoda.


This week has been chock full of nerdy awesomeness. The new Willow series on Disney+ started on Wednesday. My Campfire Queen and I are really into it. We are children of the 80s, after all. And if you couldn’t tell by the main image, Hazel is diggin’ it, too.

And to make things even better, new trailers dropped for Indiana Jones 5, Super Maro Bros, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and The Last of Us series on HBO!

Before all the inconveniences kicked off on Monday, the week actually started on a good note. We all partook (that word looks weird) in the annual raising of the Nerdmas Tree. We decorated the tree with all its nerdy glory, all while watching A Spongebob Christmas.

It’s so beautiful… 🥲

Until next time, ‘ver heil ok sæl’.
