Never thought I could hate my own state so much, but Texas insists on becoming a bad punchline to every backwards, off-color national joke.

Yes, I'm gonna bitch about the abortion bill. If that's not what you wanna read, there's a whole slew of other things on the net. Go have fun. Anyhoo-- This is not some bad joke I can at least chuckle at. I'm so far from laughing I'm probably gonna end up giving myself another migraine … Continue reading Never thought I could hate my own state so much, but Texas insists on becoming a bad punchline to every backwards, off-color national joke.

A piece of music & a film trailer have made my imagination very busy this past week & change…

I wasn't expecting my well... expectations, for lack of a better word, to change so drastically thanks to just some random browsing online in between work call-ins, power outages, and migraines. And today I overhauled my reading schedule to take advantage of my new plans. Now, I've written a little before about the 1984 film … Continue reading A piece of music & a film trailer have made my imagination very busy this past week & change…

Imagery, propaganda, & political gain at our expense, or, Beau hits it out of the park again…

I've been trying to play catchup with the news (was trying to look more into pandemic related stuff for obvious reasons) and have started delving into the state of the world. Afghanistan, of course, is the big one. So many little things were popping up I wasn't sure what to think or what was going … Continue reading Imagery, propaganda, & political gain at our expense, or, Beau hits it out of the park again…

A strange, funny, yet disturbing epiphany I had regarding how I can “get back on the horse” sooner…

I had the slightest of lulls during my shift tonight, trying to cancel out some noise and figure out what to take care of next in my stack of stuff. It wasn't quiet by any stretch, but the thought just came in. I guess we could call it the epilogue of Sunday's "I hate my … Continue reading A strange, funny, yet disturbing epiphany I had regarding how I can “get back on the horse” sooner…

August’s punches just keep landing on me; or, being on a tightrope of suspense just pisses me off…

I got a slight boost of positivity today after listening to some beautiful music, but the annoyance and dread are still making themselves front and center. I've had crappy sleep the past 3 nights because of obsessive needlepointing (couldn't do much else, and I had a drive to finish the projects) and a list of … Continue reading August’s punches just keep landing on me; or, being on a tightrope of suspense just pisses me off…

Building that “anchor point” in my day; or, getting my mental schedule back on track…

I have to say I haven't gotten the hang of consistency for much longer than a week or two. Perhaps that's why I was such a wage slave for so many years and am just now trying to get away from that and bear some more responsibility for what I can and will do in … Continue reading Building that “anchor point” in my day; or, getting my mental schedule back on track…

Choices & Chances, or, learning to finally use this quarantine period to my advantage…

To be clear, I'm pretty sure I DON'T have Covid-19. I had some minor symptoms that began to pile up earlier, but it very well could've been some other illnesses coming together (allergies, stomach irritations coming and going) added to the skyrocketing anxiety I was starting to have, making things feel worse than they actually … Continue reading Choices & Chances, or, learning to finally use this quarantine period to my advantage…

That moment when you realize you actually suck at making & sticking to a personal schedule…

It hit me out of the blue, and I don't know why. Maybe it's because I'd brought up my sticky notes app on my desktop earlier to pass on some info to a friend, and saw some other sticky notes I'd forgotten about. 3 had aborted attempts at a daily schedule, with rainy day vs. … Continue reading That moment when you realize you actually suck at making & sticking to a personal schedule…

If you’ve ever had one of those days when you just feel dumb, 5 minutes with this channel might just make you feel smarter…

It's been an insane few weeks and I'm still trying to wrap my head around all that's gone on, and perhaps when I got a better bead on it, I'll report here. But in the meantime, I got that "stupid day" feeling quite a few times and needed a quick pick me up. And something … Continue reading If you’ve ever had one of those days when you just feel dumb, 5 minutes with this channel might just make you feel smarter…

Creating a mess because I’m trying to help my pets…

I really shouldn't make "stop spending money" pledges to myself out loud... because then something comes up to derail that train of thought. And my mind has been largely derailed the whole weekend. I'm about to fall asleep sitting here after days of worrying and trying to get situated. At least I know I'll sleep … Continue reading Creating a mess because I’m trying to help my pets…
