Pinned toot

Here I am. 🙋 Doing anew. Since my 1st intro, a lot has changed:

I now , thanks to . I'm not a geek, but I get to say that I work for a company 😉 that does . My official role is but because my manifested itself useful, I've also become the designated elf. 😊

Warning. Satire. Sensitive/immature people, look away. 

Dear Fediverse,

I am a Nigerian prince. I insist on being independent of my royal family and am now financially desperate. I have all sorts of excuses. They're all legit, I assure you. On top of that, I have not grasped adulting.

I'm behind on rent because my income is not enough for me, 4 dogs and 2 new rabbits. My pets take up most of my time so i have trouble working. I haven't had any Starbucks in over a week.

Urgent! Send money! 🚀

Oh wow. 😯 The droopy/curling leaves have already recovered since I watered the pothos this morning. That was fast! Last time, I didn't notice it recovering till 2 days later.

The stem was laying limp on the glass shelf this morning... Now it's perked up and not touching the glass anymore. Yay!! 😄👍

Day 25 pothos 🍃 extra droopy. Gave it some water.
Day 27 it was all perky again.
Day 30 it's back to being droopy. Gave it more water today than last time.

Watered evenly around it. Barely used ½ cup water and some came out the bottom. Soil apparently not too compact. 🤔 I hope that means root rot won't be a problem.🤞

A few days ago the 3rd young leaf had to be amputated. It was hopeless. Now the 2nd young leaf is starting to look burnt.

I dunno. 🤔 It's never in very bright light. Today I'll skip the indirect/reflected . Let's just pretend that it's mostly overcast today. *hush* 😉

After over a year of not having any reunion with my batchmates, we finally had a via with as the main event. Interesting. The event was actually a success. 🤓

The unintended side effect of the is that those who have emigrated to other parts of the world were able to easily join us and have the same experience as everyone else. Nobody had to fly. Nobody had to miss out.

Oops. That Rt value was from 2 weeks ago but looking at the graphs the actual trend now* is ⬆️.

Possible reasons for the ⬆️ trend: people getting too relaxed, getting careless; new variants (no proof here, just 1 more possible thing that may contribute to new cases).

Haven't been paying attention to the the past few months. Must keep myself updated. ☝️

I'm learning! 🤓📚 "leaves curl to preserve water" ... Well, that actually makes sense! 🤔 Also, it's fine to lose a leaf now and then. Not really an unhealthy thing.

Compare from Days 25 & 27.

Pothos 🍃 looking better & perky again, 2 days after watering 💧. Colors still good.

💧☝️ Water weekly!
💡👍 No issue with light.

Me: Oh no. , why are you looking droopy? You were perky and growing fast last week.

Golden Pothos: Don't worry about me. Just feeling a little down right now. It'll pass...

Me: You're not dying are you? What do you want? More light? Less water? Better air circulation? Is it too humid? Not humid enough?

Golden Pothos: Goodness gracious, girl! It's not the end of the world! Relax. I'll live longer than your now-dead NJoy Pothos.

Me: 😳 (How much longer? That is the question.)

Pothos ☹️ Tillandsia 👌

Pothos 🍃 looking extra droopy.
No noticeable growth the past few days. 📉
3rd young 🍃 hasn't collapsed but very pale. The side that's away from reflected 💡 is looking rather burnt. 🤷‍♀️

I don't really mess with it.
Bright light ain't the problem.
Primary suspect is 💧 - Feb 13, 19.

Not watering till March. ☝️

Regardless of the subject, accuracy or truthfulness... Would be nice if your angry damaging toots included a , even if to you the event is already and a popular .

Who truly knows?

I do know that it's easy to believe & help spread . You can even convince educated fools that the earth is flat.



Otherwise we become the next .

And quit demonizing & . It's your world too.

Pothos 🍃 looking droopy. ☹️ But due to the dead 🟡🍃, I should probably leave it be.

☝️ No water for now. Me thinks the weekly watering (though minimal 💧) made that 1 🍃 turn 🟡. Saw an article that says let the soil dry out completely (not just the top inch). 🤷‍♀️

☝️ Reposition & adjust setting.

Work 

Since i joined the company in June, we've lost some co-workers:
👨🏼‍💼 Gav, sales
👦🏿 Mat, remote worker for simple tasks
👨🏻‍💼 Pat, sales
🧑🏻 Kat, after sales boss
👩 Ali, sales
👨🏻‍🦳 Ken, cold-calling guy

1 resigned, amicably. Moved on. We wish him well.

1 was let go, amicably. Business decision. We wish her well. I miss her.

The others... reeeeeally had to be let go. 😐

Probably worth mentioning too that I was hired to replace somebody.

I went for Option B -- cut off the yellow wilted 🍃 and wait & see.

The node is beneath the soil. I cut it as low as I could and covered the cut part with the watchamacallit covering the top of the soil. No infection, I hope.

And yes, I got a new plant yesterday! 😊
Tillandsia Ionantha Mexico ❤️

It's ridiculous that there are people who feel entitled to free stuff.

Even more ridiculous (& very sad) that there are people who don't think their work is worth paying for & feel guilty for being (or asking to be) compensated.

Something's very wrong with this world.

Perhaps if we stopped demonizing businesses, we wouldn't feel bad doing ourselves & prospering.

Not to generalize, but just as a narrow illustration: *some* starving artists are artists who don't know their worth.
