Today I went waterskiing for the first time! Courtesy of my graduate school.
The first time I fell at the first corner and had to walk back a painful rocky path barefoot for ten minutes, so it was very motivating to learn quickly. Afterwards I got a fealing for it and I was able to do several full turns of the lake without falling unless getting distracted.
My officemate made a video from me starting my third turn!
I painted the shelves upside down and I don't have enough paint left to paint the other side now.
But it's ok! At least I can store things on the top shelf and they won't fall.
I'm also trying a new techniques to keep my tomatoes happy longer: to keep the stem in water.
I'm not sure anymore where I read they should be kept out of the fridge and stem down so that their humidity doesn't escape, so I guess with the stem actually in water if should be even better? Let's see.
I got crafty again! I had some stuff I didn't know where to put so yesterday I decided to build another set of cardboard shelves. This time just improvising with the rest of the cardboard I had, but still following the same idea as the previous one.
I just glued the front panel, and yesterday I had glued the 3 shelves on the back one.
It's so much easier to fit the refractive index of only one material!!! Why did I bother calculating the transmission matrices of plastic and air surrounding my crystal!
When the solution was to just punch a hole in my plastic, glue the crystal inside so that it doesn't slide away, and so I can still tape the plastic in front of my laser beam but the laser is only going through the crystal
(I'm very excited when I didn't sleep much.)
The ones outside suffered more. I think my potatoes got very unhappy and the one with random unidentified seeds also got very dry. But now I realized it actually contains some rhubarbs!
My Swedish landlord sent them to me three years ago but they got moldy so I wasn't hoping anything when I threw them there. Plants are magic!
Also while I couldn't take care of them, all my paprika seeds from random supermarket paprikas grew a lot, and my bottom of salads are getting high.
I didn't want to work late tonight so I started painting the shelves before the sun disappears. I still had some acrylic an colleague left me two years ago, the cap of the tube is actually cracked, it was time to empty them.
I ran out of tape but I had still some proper glue. If tomorrow it's property fixed, I could paint it and I would be still cooler than a chair!
Mmh maybe I kept the feet a bit too large
I guess a proper glue (I only have paper glue) and a proper tape would have helped but once I get the other half, I can make it hold!
I realized I was basically tiling windows all the time anyway (like constantly snapping them in the corners), and I've seen cool-looking things with tiling windows managers recently, so I started making sure my laptop is virtually unusable by anyone I know.
I chose colors to match the wallpaper without realizing it would also match my mastodon theme
Also look at my status bar! I spent the night on it and I'm very proud of it.

Yaaay I managed to make a brick with a hole!

The potatoes I forgot in the earth last autumn started growing so I added in the small germinated ones I had kept and they look happy. Potatoes are my friends! 🌱
I also tried to regrow a germinated onion but it started looking unhappy while new roots were appearing and now in the earth it looks about to die
