Being an adult

Getting into work on time for important meetings

I set multiple alarms on multiple devices (phone, physical alarm clock, pebble), spaced 10 - 20 minutes apart, starting maybe half an hour before the deadline when I need to get up. This way, if I fall back asleep, I’ll get kicked back up again - in a way that the snooze button doesn’t seem to do. Vibrating pebble seems to work well as one of the devices.

Think about backup plans: what if your car doesn’t start. How long will it take for the next bus or a taxi to arrive

"Apply antiperspirant twice a day (in the morning and at night). Why? At night, you sweat at a slower rate, which allows more antiperspirant to sink down into your sweat ducts. "

Just learned about the difference between antiperspirant and deodorant. Especially if I’m trying to avoid driving to work, in the middle of summer, . Tried Old Spice pure sport combination antiperspirant. Worked well, dry all day, except it’s almost impossible to remove. Switched back to the deodorant-only Old Spice.

Wearing an undershirt is sufficient to prevent stains.

I made an appointment to get the HPV vaccine after Cara Santa Maria’s fucking chilling story of cervical cancer, and because I’m below age 27 cutoff. Talked to doctor, they said to contact Public Health directly.

They said it’s three shots, $800 per shot.
