A number of factors have combined to keep me locked up in the apartment: heat, humidity, and an age related general lack of interest in going outside unless I have a particularly good reason to do so.
The latter has caused me to cancel planned outings even during nice weather. The typical process involves a couple days of making plans and more plans but then the day of the plan arrives and my brain starts rationalizing staying in by second guessing the necessity of following the plan. My brain is suddenly concerned about spending and spent energy and all the bad and annoying things that can happen during the outing.
If it is hot and humid, or there’s a strong chance of rain, the process happens much faster.
In the end, I usually end up staying home.
This makes life kind of relaxing as well a whole lot cheaper. I just doesn’t give me much to write about.
