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.
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.
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 https://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.

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.
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.
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 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.
