- The milk that I really like is only available in half-gallons, and is $4 instead of $3. That means I'm both paying more, *and* creating more plastic recycling. But if I buy normal gallon milk, I drink probably half as much milk, which leads to slower milk consumption and a need to buy half-gallons...

- Wow, politics, wow.

- But let me write this down here, before I forget it -- I think it's important that we start teaching about the signs and actions of early Fascism, and not just "Hitler is bad because WWII and Holocaust." Because that's too late. Like, we need to figure out exactly what about early 1930s Nazism and Fascism that's bad. What's so different between a civil works program in the US vs. in Germany at the time? (Maybe because one just puts people to work, and the other glorifies a certain ideology.)

- I've been feeling a bit unbalanced of late -- once again, too many things that I want to do, it's a hot mess. Which is the actual point of this post: to take a step back and prioritize.

There's work and baby-holding, which are both kind of immutable and persistent. But outside of that, I have a desire to make things, and a desire for social interactions. I think the problem is figuring out how best to do both those things. Recently, I joined a fandom chat channel which has been lots of fun, but has severely cut into the time for making things. :/. So I need to quarantine that a bit.

Making Things
- Draft some more Rutabaga comics
- Draft RBB prewar genderbend Stucky
- 4F fic
- I need to do an action study, so that I can get better at drawing action. (Punching, bullets flying through the air, etc.)
- prompt comic that needs action
- pics of Steve punching Nazis in the face

Social Stuff
- Hangouts with husband
- Hangouts with comickers
- Hangouts with non-comicker friends
- Writing to existing fandom friends
- RBB modding
- writing HTB2 reqs

I'm going to do a time tracking thing for the next week or so, just to see how much time I spend on each type of thing. :)
