Even though I'm on vacation and celebrating my birthday with my family at the cabin, I also have to be available for work as I'm on call. It can be a bit stressful to always be ready in case of an emergency, but I understand that being on call is a necessary part of my job and it's important for me to fulfill my responsibilities.

I swapped my username
I have for the past ~15 years had the username RTRD and I do still have it on Steam. But in the past seven or eight, I have added "Daniel" to the front of it because no one knew how to say it. And this has been stuck with me for a long time. Now that I have changed my workplace and other life-changing stuff has happened I have come to the realization that I should swap my username. Back in the day, everyone had to "hide" behind a username to protect their identity, but in this day and age i...
