Didn't want to go out today

1:46 AM (of Tuesday, May 19th 2020)

Today is Monday, May 18th 2020 and I just did not want to go out today. I believe I woke up at around 6 or 7 AM today, and I got to work on printing out my state taxes I completed yesterday. It turns out that e-filing for federal is free, but then it costs $25 to e-file state taxes. So I wanted to just mail out the state taxes so I wouldn't have to pay anything. I probably woke up at around 6 AM, but it took me a while to print out the state taxes, I tried a bunch of different computers that wouldn't connect with the printer for some reason, and then finally I was able to get one to connect and print.

At that point I realized I already spent about an hour just trying to print the taxes, and it would probably have been easier on me to just pay the $25 to e-file, it would have saved some paper and ink too. Then I realized oh, I had to go out to buy a manila envelope and some stamps to mail this out. That would have cost some time, gas, etc, possibly exposing myself to the virus as I was out shopping. You know what? It's better if I just paid the e-file fee. So I just gave up and paid, it took like 1 minute to do that and I was done with state taxes. It would have saved me so much hassle to just have e-filed to begin with.

I worked on some personal things right until it was time to work, and then I worked. Today was a very uninspiring work day. Some very boring tasks. Lots of work.

After that, I thought about whether I should go cycling today. I recall that throughout the day there wasn't many people I saw outside through my window. It was a cloudy gray day the entire day. I didn't want to risk myself getting exposed to the virus either. If I went out I would probably go to the hard hill again, and I already realized how dangerous it was due to its steepness and I've already done it at least 4 times and it's just so boring and unremarkable to me now. So yeah those thoughts just pushed me to staying in. This sucks because those thoughts can apply to the next day too, so will I end up staying home from now on?

I took a nap at around 8 PM, I didn't want to go out, so what else was I going to do? I took a nap, and that nap turned into me sleeping. I didn't do much throughout the day so there's not much to write about. I worked on taxes mainly in the morning and some other financial stuff, and besides that there wasn't much else.
