jhameia: ME! (Default)

At 9-ish, after HAUGHing at the weather, not wanting to go to campus because around lunch I'd have to leave the office to find food, I decided that I would go to Coco's, order a bacon and eggs flatbread, because I know I cannot finish it in one sitting, and just sit there for hours, feebly trying to finish it.

It took me 4 hours to get through the whole thing.

Against my better sense, I also ordered a slice of cheesecake pie. I did not manage to finish it, even after two more hours.

I should have ordered clam chowder instead, and maybe fries. Except I'm not sure the fries would have been any better.

I have ~1000 words for my fourth chapter, many of which was not even written today.

When I left, I left a huge-ass tip because I felt so bad for the wait staff because I was so anxious about my writing I avoided eye contact with them almost the whole time.

I DID want to swim today, and thought I would save it for sunset, because it was still going to be a heinous 33'c in the evening. But I wanted to catch a Pikachu wearing Ash's hat so I did my long walk instead. Maybe tomorrow when S. and I go to UCSD I'll hike down to Black's Beach and go for a swim in the ocean? Or maybe not, and go to the Geisel library and work instead (which I never did last year).

My smartphone is having issues charging itself. I'll plug it in, and it'll charge for some time, but then, arbitrarily, it'll decide to just.... not charge. Like the USB cord is in, it WAS charging, but at some point it just stops. It'll recognize when the USB has been unplugged when I pull it out, but otherwise I can't figure out what's going on with it. I wonder if it has to do with the weather, and it doesn't charge so well in intense temperatures. But my laptop is also taking forever to charge fully, despite these being perfectly decent (and new) wires. I'm not sure what's going on.

It's relatively cool here today. I need to give my pool a good vacuuming, but it's too cold to go in. I'm considering donning the wetsuit to clean it!

Do you have an iPhone or Android? If Android, download an app called Ampere. It will give you information about the charge of your phone. Try a couple different cables and chargers. I had a charger go bad while I was on vacation. I've had bad cables in the past.

If you have an iPhone .. sorry, can't help.

Well, whatever kind of phone, switching to a different outlet/connector/cable is a thing you can check. If you have a spare to check with.

1000 words! Better than 100. Aren't the first words hardest? I always find it easier to rewrite than to write.

It could also be the battery. They have some intelligence built in to them now. Is it more than a year old? I'd google the phone type to see if there is a known issue with the batteries.

What kind of phone is it? I had a Samsung that did something very similar. The charging port got loose or something, and wouldn't always make a connection. If it's less than a year old, it should be under warranty, right?
