Hi, Journal!
It’s May 5, 2021.
I’m here with another entry, so I can tell you one good thing that happened to me today. So here is my daily log, in an effort to see the good in my life and put out some good vibes along the way.
So let me set the scene. I was sitting in the cafeteria for lunch. It’s Hospital Week, where the hospital thanks its employees with a gift and holder festivities all week, usually in the form of free food. Since today is Cinco de Mayo, the cafeteria was decked out in festive, Mexican-themed decor and played upbeat Mexican music. The emergency doors were propped open for a fun, freeing feel. The sun was bright, the breeze was nice, the air was fresh. The feeling of bright, happy festivities were in the air.
As my coworkers and I were having a good, hearty conversation over tacos, I stopped mid bite to look up. Light and flowy music started playing—it felt as if the Ghibli soundtrack during a movie about a woodland adventure had a bit of a South American flair—unusual because everything else thus far has been rather upbeat. Time slows down to a peaceful calm. I have this moment of zen, staring at nothing in the mid-distance. And out of the corner of my eye, movement catches my attention.
I turn to the right, and I see a little orange butterfly floating gently into the cafeteria. It fluttered gently in a straight line, my head following it from right to left, before it went out the way it came, left to right. And then the upbeat music resumed and the upbeat festivities continued.
“Magical” feels like the wrong word to use. But it was just an unusual, sweet moment that I couldn’t help but laugh and enjoy it as it was happening.
Talk to you tomorrow.
P. S.

Hey, Journal.
It’s May 3, 2021.
I’m here with another entry, so I can tell you one good thing that happened to me today. So here is my daily log, in an effort to see the good in my life and put out some good vibes along the way.
Today was my first day back at work, and boy was it something. I, apparently, missed a Whole Lot while I was away. I had left with a lot of work still left to do, and I came back to more than I had thought. As an aside, something that was funny was that my boss’ boss had joked that if CDPH came though on my days off, she’d call me back in. And guess what? She jinxed it. (She didn’t call me in, though.)
Anyways, all that to say that I was acutely aware that, even though it seemed like work was piling on at increasing rates, I wasn’t as stressed as I was before my two-ish day vacation. The thing that cemented it for me was the lack of heavy, overbearing worry. I would feel like I was running out of time, playing catch-up with all my work. I would not use the restroom for far longer than I should have gone without a bathroom break, to the point where my bladder would hurt before I rushed to the bathroom. I would work during lunch or eat during working. I would essentially be working eight straight hours, in my cave, isolated from everyone. (You know, unless they found me to add more work.)
But today, I was just. Super chill? I did feel stressed, but I took a breath and just... let it go. I think before the break, I would have felt so much more stressed.
But, the thing is, I didn’t feel like I was stressed before either. I was pretty good at leaving work at work, and not think about it at home. I was stressed, but I felt super fine. Tired, but fine. Like nothing was really wrong, that everything was okay, that I could keep going. And that’s not to say I couldn’t. But it’s without consciously realizing it, I was wearing myself out at work. I would be okay overall, but just worn down and tired.
I really didn’t know I needed a break until I took it, and sort of just reset my system. I’m still super tired, since it was a whirlwind of a few days, but it gave me the breathing room from work I didn’t know I needed.
And I’m so glad because now I know the feeling of non-stress and essentially being at peace with whatever stress I have. And that will make me better at recognizing when I *do* need a break in the future, even if I do feel fine.
Finally, an Extra Serving of Dumplings. Zazu Sighting #17!
I saw him staring into my yard from his side of the fence. I walked up to him and he chirped at me, rolling over and over on his back. He first rolled rather far away, but gradually rolled closer and closer to me, and he gently held my hand in his paw as I reached out to him through the fencing.

It was a “blink and you’ll miss it” encounter. I saw him for a minute, and the next time I circled back, he was gone. Lucky today, indeed.
Talk to you tomorrow!

Heya, Journal.
It’s April 24, 2021.
I’m here with another entry, so I can tell you one good thing that happened to me today. So here is my daily log, in an effort to see the good in my life and put out some good vibes along the way.
I went to the Carlsbad Flower Fields today. It’s been pretty gloomy lately, but luckily, the sky cleared up a bit, enough for us to see the whole stretch of flowers. At some points, it looked like the fields could extend forever, reach the ends of the Earth and still keep going. At other points, not so much, but the parts that did were so pretty. The variety of colors and educational signs were great. I’ve always wanted to see flower fields like this—part of my wanderlust—and I’m so glad I got the chance to see one up close for the first time. Can’t wait to see more!

None of the pictures did it any justice, but here’s one. I think these were one of my faves from today.
As an Extra Serving of Dumpling, Zazu Sighting #15!

I got to see him up close today. His new collar looks like brown leather, with embossed stars. Cute!

I need to get in on the video essay game before someone makes the 5hr Lion King retrospective that only I deserve to
#not that I ever will...but I’ve thought about it#I saw one for Warrior Cats today and it took me tf out#and not to be all ‘I like this incredibly popular Disney movie more than anyone else the Lion King is MY movie’#because that’s really reductive I hate when people say that like they’re the only ones to think it#and it’s not even my favourite Disney movie. Lilo and Stitch all the way#but I AM in the top 0.0004% of monthly Lebo M. listeners so gleam from that what you will#but who else but me could talk about...the tv shows. the sequels. the Broadway show. the remake. the books. the fanbase..the Zazu Tiki Room.#I’m sure there are people who like and are more knowledgeable about every one of those specific things more than me but all together?#and I feel like the way I like the Lion King is Different to the way most do. Again not to be all Not Like Other Fans#but I feel like there’s one side that likes the original movie just for the message and the music and the characters and the stage show#like they’ll have tattoos of the Simba painting and have Timon and Pumbaa on a t shirt#and there’s another section who were really introduced to it via the sequel#so they like the idea of interpersonal lion drama and romance and new lion ocs and kingdoms and breeding Cubs on deviantart#and at a certain point it just becomes scaled up warrior cats#but I’m into like...the core concept. Animals can talk and have a functional monarchy. what are the ethics of that? who can eat who and when#that’s the stuff that’s interesting to me#but no piece of Lion King media really Goes There#actually this might be better as a series of videos instead#oh well I’ll just lay the groundwork so they hire me to write for the re-remake in 20 years

Hey, Journal.
It’s April 20, 2021.
I’m here with another entry, so I can tell you one good thing that happened to me today. So here is my daily log, in an effort to see the good in my life and put out some good vibes along the way.
I feel like, today, I really experienced the saying, “You reap what you sow.” But in a good way! (I think there’s another idiom for this, with an explicitly positive takeaway, but I’m not sure what it is. Does anyone know?)
I picked up the dozen Portuguese Egg Tarts, per request. And I was like, while I’m there, I might as well pick up another dozen to give out to coworkers! So, I counted on my fingers the coworkers I wanted to give them out to, and just started doling them out. It felt good to give, just as thanks for being good coworkers. And I had felt it good to give once in a while, when I would seem to receive a lot more. Just to even out the karma a bit, like with this blog/podcast.
But over the course of the day, I just received even more?! My office-mate bought me a Matcha Green Tea Latte, another colleague gave me one of his birthday donuts. I’m so thankful to be in a place that seems to be so overflowing in bounty, and to be able to receive so much from generous colleagues.
Thanks, guys. 💖✨✨✨
In other news, another Extra Servings of Dumplings. Just to log another Zazu sighting. This was Zazu Sighting #13. He was taking a cat nap in the sun. So cute!

Alright, talk to you tomorrow.

Why is it called “Worship Statue”?
I was talking to some friends about the statues of the seven and how our level up option for the statues is called “worship statue.” Turns out, this is only an english thing. All other languages have it as “make offering” or “infuse” or a variant. 
The more I think about it, the less it makes sense. The Traveler is obviously not worshipping the gods of that world, especially not their statues. And we don’t worship them so much as infuse them with the oculus. So...why “worship” them? 
It would definitely alienate some players, like those who are religious or those who are uncomfortable with religion. I dunno... I personally hate it.
