How's It Going?: Doctor Edition

It’s Thursday—we’re so close to the weekend! Welcome back to our daily open thread.


I have to go to the doctor today, which feels weird after four months of just hoping I didn’t need medical care. I feel pretty nervous about traveling there and sitting in a waiting room. I hate the doctor under the best of circumstances, and I’ve spent the morning trying to convince myself to not just blow it off. It helps a little that, in a weird twist of fate, the person I’m supposed to see is actually a friend of mine whom I forgot worked at the clinic I go to. (There may be thousands of queer people in New York, but it’s still a small world.) “You don’t want to inconvenience someone you know,” I keep telling myself when the voice that whispers “Ah, just skip it” creeps up. 

So here’s to being a responsible adult, I guess. What about you? How’s it going?

I need to reschedule a dentist appointment before everything gets shut down again.

I’m really looking forward to this long weekend and just taking some extra time. I’ve got a lot work I want to do for my cert course. With these extra days off, I hope I can make a lot of progress. Outside of that, I’m kind of in a holding pattern for games. I want to play CrossCode, Deadly Premonition 2, Paper Mario and the Origami King, but they just aren’t out yet. I think I might take some time to get through the Foundation DLC for Control and restart some MGSV too.

I’m looking to buy a gift for my partner’s birthday, and its a bit on the pricier side. I’m not opposed to spending the money, but does anyone have an experience with couponing sites and extensions like Honey? Just looking for some general feedback about the experience.
