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…

Don’t underestimate the usefulness of writing prompts… but maybe, don’t go overboard, either.

I'm trying to get my writing groove back and stimulate my thinking and imagination. I'm sure that's necessary to get to writing full time and enjoying the hell out of it. But when my own ideas are seemingly blocked, or I'm stuck with trying to figure out which idea I should resurrect first... it's a … Continue reading Don’t underestimate the usefulness of writing prompts… but maybe, don’t go overboard, either.

When you’ve finally snapped out of it, but have no clue how it happened…

I've been on a bit of a cleaning streak the past few days. I have no clue how, after months of just being listless, searching for something but getting nowhere, and having no energy... I just got up and started cleaning mid-morning on Saturday. I put my keyboard down, started some laundry, went to my … Continue reading When you’ve finally snapped out of it, but have no clue how it happened…

I think I FINALLY managed to bore myself out of my usual procrastination methods…

It's been a hard road to slog through, and I've fallen way behind on some things and barely touched others. My days and evenings have been full of obsessively playing video games, hoping to reach ever-elusive goals. And then, while doing that, making new reading lists for the year (because my files weren't saving right … Continue reading I think I FINALLY managed to bore myself out of my usual procrastination methods…

Sometimes, you just have to let yourself be lazy.

I'm stuck in a situation where I have to work open to close several days in a row. I've got two more (thankfully shorter) days of this to go, and the list of things that I should be doing is ever increasing. Storm violence led to a lack of sleep (which I'm itching to get … Continue reading Sometimes, you just have to let yourself be lazy.

Q #132: What do the protesters saying “Covid-19 is a hoax” mean? (& other q’s about all this…)

I don't really understand the statement, "Covid-19 is a hoax" that people are putting on Facebook, Twitter, protest signs the past few weeks. Um, Covid-19 exists. Over 80,000 people have died from it and hundreds of thousands are carriers of it. It's been around and about all over the world. So, how is Covid-19 a … Continue reading Q #132: What do the protesters saying “Covid-19 is a hoax” mean? (& other q’s about all this…)

One thing I realized I’m thankful for during this virus-time: I live alone.

Considering how easily I get mind-numbingly bored (and you, dear readers, have bumped into a few of those posts), that might seem surprising. My kids, so to speak, are feathered, finned, or have paws and floppy ears. It hit me today, while people are so worried about their families and I'm doing all I can … Continue reading One thing I realized I’m thankful for during this virus-time: I live alone.

Dodged a bullet today, though I can’t help wondering if I’m jumping in front of another…

I wasn't supposed to work today, but a co-worker got hurt and couldn't walk, so I took her shift. And then, because things never stop changing in this CV crazy-world we live in right now, I got to give my input in a conference call with the owner that I didn't expect to. We have … Continue reading Dodged a bullet today, though I can’t help wondering if I’m jumping in front of another…

Q#121–Where’s the line between Multi-Level Marketing & a Pyramid Scheme?

Over the years, I've seen a lot of "opportunities" on the web and on TV that have made me just paranoid by reflex. I never have gotten into home distribution or some marketing opportunity, though I've had others try to get me into them. As far as I know, nobody is trying to get to … Continue reading Q#121–Where’s the line between Multi-Level Marketing & a Pyramid Scheme?
