Well, I never expected it, but my watch strap broke this morning and changed up the rest of my day.

I’ve only had my Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 for two years. The little plastic bits holding the metal connecty part were wearing out, and I knew it was a matter of time before I needed a new strap. And yet, I never thought to actually buy a replacement ahead of time.

So when my watch strap broke this morning, I had to just go to work watchless. It’s not the end of the world. My workout this evening won’t be as accurate, but it’s just one day. Luckily, Amazon had plenty of same-day delivery bands available. The perks of living in a big city in a compact, efficient country.

But part of me wishes I’d done this months ago. Bought a replacement upfront. Then I wouldn’t be waiting to fix it, I’d be totally prepared and finished up in just a single moment. It feels like this lesson applies to so many parts of my life, but I never learn, never heed the warning signs. It might be normal for humans to act like that, but it doesn’t stop me feeling annoyed when it happens.

The current Quinlan Circle webhost announced it’s shutting down at the end of the year. The warning signs were there, with this site going down a couple times every single week, but I mostly ignored it. The site only went down for 3-5 minutes at a time, barely enough to think about for a site this small. But now I’ve got to find brand-new hosting and most likely pay a lot more money, which I don’t have.

That situation reminds me of the watch strap way too much for comfort.
