I've wondered for a while now if I have celiac disease. I have almost all the symptoms, but they could be caused by my other conditions (IBS and gastritis).

It won't make much of a difference even if I'm diagnosed. I can't afford to be on a gluten-free diet.

I've been on one in the past and my stomach issues did improve significantly, however, it's a really expensive diet unless you cook your own meals. I had to go off it because it was costing me too much money.

I bought two RCA to HDMI converters from two different companies and both came broken. I'm going to ask Amazon for a refund and then buy one by Insignia that I found at Best Buy.

A well known company like them are a lot more trustworthy than a couple Chinese companies I've never heard of.

For the first time in a very long time, I bought myself new clothes. I've never really cared about my appearance and have been wearing the same clothes since high school.

I lost almost all of my clothes in the move, so I figured now is a good time to buy some new ones..

I bought myself a nice DuckDuckGo shirt that I'm really happy about. Also a tactical belt, a pair of pants, and a cool chain I can hook to my pants. I'm pretty happy.

I bought a used PS2 game and when I went to play it I got a disc read error. I've tried my best to remove the scratches, but it still won't work.

From now on I should always make sure the seller specifies that the game was tested. I've learned my lesson.

If you play games on Steam, I highly recommend manually backing up your save date, even if you have cloud sync. I've completely lost save files in the past, including save files from games that use cloud sync.

Since the location of save files varies by game and can be hard to find sometimes, I recommend using a site called pcgamingwiki.com. They have information about most games, including the location of a game's save file. It's a very useful website.

I was a bit reckless with my money this month and spent too much. I didn't have enough money to pay all of my bills. Thankfully I had some money in my Digit account that I was able to transfer over to my checking.

It's always good to have a safety net. Financial troubles can come out of nowhere and having extra money saved is important.

Nintendo Direct will be live today at 3 PM PT and 6 PM ET.

"Roughly 40 minutes of information focused on 2019 Nintendo Switch games, including Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield and Luigi’s Mansion 3."


My CoinMama account got approved. I'm glad that annoying verification process is over. I was about to buy some bitcoins and I find out I have to buy a minimum of $60 worth of bitcoins.

It's such bs. I never had to deal with this kind of thing when I used Coinbase. I'm just going to have to wait until next month before I can buy some.

Most horror anime doesn't scare me, but season 3 of Yami Shibai may be an exception. That creature the woman turned into in episode 3 freaked me out. I wasn't expecting it at all. So far this season has been pretty disturbing and much more creepier than the previous seasons.

I love the way he hops up the ladder. So cute. :blobcatlove:

I'm so happy I found my PS2! I thought it got lost in the move. It's only the console and memory card, so I'll have to buy the cables and a controller, which are inexpensive. I want to buy Metropolismania and Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life.

It's nuts the steps you have to go through if you want to purchase bitcoins on CoinMama. They need you to upload a picture of the front and back of your state ID or driver's license. Alright, that isn't so bad. I understand why they need that.

Then they make you type the ID number and expiration date. I don't know why that's necessary when I already uploaded a photo of my ID, but ok.

Now here's the best part. You then have to upload a selfie (they even specify 'selfie') of yourself holding a piece of paper with the word 'CoinMama" on it and today's date, and you also have to hold your ID alongside it.

Oh and the ID info has to be clearly readable, so if you have a shitty phone camera, good luck getting them to approve your application. I've opened up bank accounts and credit lines online that didn't require any of this crap.

I highly recommend kitchari if you've never had it before. It's an Indian dish made of basmati rice, mung dal, Indian spices, and ghee. It's very easy to make and can even be prepared all in a rice cooker. You can find kits on Amazon.

It's very easy on the stomach and is a perfect dish if you have stomach issues like me. It's also a great dish to make if you've recently had stomach problems (nausea, pain, have thrown up) and you need to watch what you eat while your stomach is still recovering.

I bought a small shelf to store my supplements and medications. I found out I can't even hang it up because my dad's drill is lost. Using a screwdriver isn't an option unfortunately because I have to drill a hole in the wall for the drywall anchors. I guess I'll just have to save up for a drill.

Humble is giving away Dirt Rally for free on Steam. Make sure you have a lot of space on your hard drive if you plan on installing it. The game requires 42 GB. I was going to install it, but I don't have enough space.


Japan produces some of the most interesting genres of music. This band called Broken By The Scream are sometimes labeled as 'idolcore'. It's a mix of j-pop and metalcore. Think Babymetal, but far more brutal.


I somehow slept for 22 hours. I stayed up all night and day, so I was pretty tired when I finally went to bed. It's funny because part of the reason I stayed up was to fix my sleeping pattern. So much for that.

I should see an eye doctor soon. I wear glasses that use an old prescription because my current prescription glasses broke. It's been a few years since I've had an eye exam and I feel like my vision has worsened.

I'm pretty sure my insurance will cover a new pair of glasses as long as my prescription has changed. I think I'm going to give contacts another try though regardless if I get a new pair of glasses or not.
