Life has been interesting lately, hasn’t it? My personal life has been fairly quiet, though very busy with work. I put in 10+ hours over the winter break and last night I was still in my office working at 8pm. I’m not fond of times like this but it’s not a constant so I just sort of deal with it. I have started a new shawl, only because I needed something to keep myself occupied with in a waiting room, and it’s a non-pattern sort of thing with a ball of yarn that I honestly don’t know why I purchased but am finding myself loving.
And then I did a thing. A purely for myself kind of thing. I started Noom. And so far I have lost 4lbs in less than a week. I love it.
What I don’t love is the bullshit that happened in the US capital yesterday. It was cowardly and that jackass president just kept pouring gasoline on a grease fire. Those people were not protestors they were domestic terrorists and they should be dealt with appropriately. And the same for Cheeto Mussolini. That kind of behavior shouldn’t be tolerated, let alone spurred on by the leader of a country.
I don’t talk politics much because I don’t feel qualified to do so. I have my opinions, you have yours, and as long as we can agree to treat one another respectfully then I don’t too much care if your opinion is vastly different. But this shit? Oh hell no. The last thing I’ll say about this is that I am very eagerly awaiting Joe Biden taking over and having the opportunity to set some things right again.
I nearly can’t stand to watch the news or get on social media anymore. There’s so much hate and violence everywhere you turn. It’s awful. Trump keeps throwing his disgusting weight around like he’s got a right to do these horrible things he keeps threatening to do and much of the masses believe him.
Folks, the movie “Idiocracy” was NEVER intended to be a documentary.
There are still good, rational, reasonable people out there. I know there are. I just hope they all get out and vote. I voted early by mail. I’m lazy and it’s easier for me, but I did it. Those of you here in the US, or really anywhere, I can’t encourage you enough to exercise your right to have your voice heard.
I’ve reached a point where I feel like a return to life as it should be is well within my grasp. My sleep is still not where I want it to be but I’ll see the doc tomorrow and I plan to talk to her about it. Progress is still being made with controlling the mania so I feel good about that.
The stress levels in general are coming down which is absolutely heavenly. I’m actually (finally) getting excited about the trip to India. I made a few purchases this morning that were recommended by friends and I’m getting ready to line up a few more.
As a total side note, what the hell did we do before internet shopping? Seriously.
Also saw this on Facebook this morning and it was like someone smacked me in the face with a phone book. I plan to make the rest of this year a very educational experience and then next year, look out.
*assuming of course I can stop locking my fucking keys in my office
