I got a bunch of things done today, including changing to slicks as planned and some garden work. Small tasks, but together they add up in the struggle against PMO. I did suffer Friday urges again, but again I managed to resist. I wouldn't say I'm getting good at it, because that only leads to overconfidence and relapse. However, I'm prepared for the urges since I know when they'll most likely appear. I think I should look into getting a cat. Having a companion around should make life feel less empty. It should also make me take some responsibility, even though cats are fairly independent. Lastly I'm glad to see that the climate strikes are growing. It angers me that people still deny that the human race is responsible for the rapid decline of nature. Even worse is that the grown ups in charge don't seem to care, and that the students have to step up. I do think change is coming, but I fear that it's too late. I recall from my childhood that there was talk of changes needed. Why does it take so long? My guess is that man really has to empty every resource before he realizes that he can't eat money. I'd love to work with nature, but I lack the education.
