100 Days covid-19: day 743 | US: GA | info | act

Tomorrow will mark 100 days since I had any alcohol. This is likely the longest time I’ve gone not having a drink since I started drinking in my early-twenties. I don’t notice much of a difference, and abstaining is not difficult. I figure I’ll have a drink again at some point, but I never want to return to being a daily drinker or a heavy drinker—more than three drinks a day. I think my approach will default to “no thanks” most of the time.

I received my second Covid-19 booster on Thursday, and I have pretty much felt like crap since. I had a negative C-19 test on Friday, so it has to be a reaction to the vaccine. This time, I decided to get the Moderna shot, so my immune system might just be having a different reaction to it. Whatever it is, I essentially have a bad cold.

We had bad storms come through here last Tuesday and Wednesday. Of course we lost power. I’ve gotten to the point where I just assume we’ll be without power for a few hours every time it storms. It’s inconvenient and annoying, and it shows me that I’ll never really be able to host any important services on my homelab. Maybe I can look into a backup generator. Yeah, where the hell would I put it?
