I’m kind of all over the place right now…mainly because I have been so froggin’ busy over the last few days, that I haven’t had a spare moment to myself to consider WHAT I will write about. Even right now, my mind is tossing around various topics/ideas to talk about, with nothing really resonating. So, instead of not writing anything, I’ll just write whatever it is that is on my mind at the current moment. With that, here goes…
I thought that the “close friend” option on Facebook was a means to reduce or eliminate the flotsam and jetsam from your news feeds. Wrong!! In fact, when I started using this feature, I got more spam than ever before. One person kept sending photos and videos…one after the other…after the other….in rapid succession. I started to get annoyed and decided to take this person OFF my close friend list.
A childhood friend got married on Saturday. I am immensely happy for her…..but a tad envious because I haven’t found anyone YET. Mentally scanning my social history, I haven’t recalled any instance in which a man voluntarily approached me…or even expressed an interest. When I went out with friends, they got approached all the time. What was wrong with me? I’d ask myself. This self-flagellation would go one for several minutes, maybe several hours, until I felt better…and the cycle would repeat itself. Until I stopped going out and meeting people altogether. Not that I’m anti-social or anything, but I am not a terribly social person…and I don’t like the pressure of “hooking up.” A situation like that makes me feel powerless and weak, so I stay away. I prefer low-pressure, low-stress environments where people are free to enjoy themselves without any unreasonable expectations or demands.
Two days after my friend got married, I (along with other family members) attended the homegoing of a beloved cousin. She had been battling pancreatic cancer for a few short months. Quite naturally, her sons and daughters (and THEIR sons and daughters) were devastated…as was everyone else. Personally, I don’t know how I’d react if one or both of my parents were to die now, but I WILL have a reaction for sure. But my parting thought is this: take care of your health..a lesson that I am learning every day!!
Man, I need to stay away from heavy foods during the summer! I don’t know WHAT in the world I was thinking, but eating a bunch of starchy, overprepared foods did nothing for my stomach….or my head. I had the most massive headache/upset stomach that I’ve had in a long time! Combine that with the humid weather and the lack of sleep, and you have a situation on your hands! A “situation” that turned messy-if you know what I mean! Fortunately, I was able to sleep it off and arrive to work the next morning in a good state.
I don’t know what it is about meetings…maybe it’s the room temp or the subject matter being discussed, but once I get into one of those, I start drifting off. This time, I made a real effort to stay awake and absorb everything….but I still drifted off for a few seconds. I could never get this problem under control. Next time, I’m going to have to try something different. Any ideas?
One more day to the weekend…and already I’m in that mode. Even more so because tomorrow’s pay day! I’m psyched up!
Anything else I have to talk about? No….but catch me next time, and I’m sure to have something on tap. Until next time…
