WFM (Working from Mall)

Working from Willow Bend Mall where two thirds of things are boarded up or padlocked has similar vibes to going into office. (But with better music and worse wifi.)

24 hours left

I am a little over 24 hours from being able to punt the client MacBook that is constantly a baffling and frustrating complete disaster to use into the FRIGGIN’ SEA.

(I am an approximately 6 hours from anything resembling a sea, the commute will be worth it.)

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is here

Ready and waiting. Now have to work and sit in meetings for next 8 hours while Zelda:TotK stares at me.

My handwriting has atrophied even faster in last 3 years than it already was before WFH.

I mean come on. WTF could this possibly say? Lemon? ?

“You shut me down… No I shut myself down! ”

Animated screenshot of client Macbook Pro with multiple alerts about shutting down unexpectedly.

I’ve never had a Mac that caused me any troubles, this client laptop is so loaded with unnecessary corporate garbage that it’s constantly freaking out, shutting down, beach balling. After two years I finally get to send it back in a month. ?

(I actually like the project/client, but this laptop has been such a beating for so, so long.)
