” I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.” – Voltaire
This has not been the best of weeks but I am attempting to make the most of it. There have been some difficult conversations and a general idea that most people have no idea what the fuck they are talking about. Maybe it’s because I am in a research class but I tend to research things and sources all the time. Especially when an article or conversation is posted online. This is the internet, not everything you read is true, or half-truths mixed with lies to benefit one side. Even with articles posted about medical information. There is usually a link somewhere to the actual research article which many people never look at. They simply take things at face value and deem themselves educated and experts. It pisses me off.
I left Facebook this week. The profile is still up for Bean to play games, but otherwise I am not checking it and if someone needs me they can text or call me. I am done with the political bullshit and the general spread of lies. I am done with keyboard warriors telling me what I should and shouldn’t think, believe, and how to parent. I am on Twitter for Furious. I am on Snapchat for fun now and again. I do this blog and comment. Otherwise come see me or call me. I won’t lie, this is partially due to the election, but I have reached the point that I do not want technology taking over my life anymore and I am okay with that. I would rather enjoy my kids and work on myself than deal with this bullshit.
On a happy note, LaLa is doing amazing at her job and Bean is doing well with her medication change. We spend nights watching movies, coloring, and spending time together. It is a nice change now that I am unplugged. The only things I do is school and Furious. Otherwise I have no need to take away from them or me. I am quitting smoking, finally, and I am continuing to lose weight and thrive with my poetry and lyrics. I really need to get back into the song writing and singing. I miss it so much. But things always appear to come full circle and the bad things will pass while the good will flourish. Love Trumps Hate.
Onto the shit you came for!
Press Play: Dan turned me on to this group called State of Shock. They are friends of his family and are awesome, despite being disbanded. Their song Too Pretty is stuck in my head majorly. Also, check out Eminem – Campaign Speech and We as Americans. They say so much!
Popcorn Worthy: This week I threw it back to the classic, Gone With The Wind. What an amazing movie. I also watched We Need To Talk About Kevin which I had never heard of but what a fucked up flick. Check em out if you wanna!
Weekly WTF: I get no insurance bill and call my agent who says my car insurance is fine yet get a penalty fee and termination notice? This was your fault, not mine. This is the second time. I called the AG office and I filed a complaint with them and the BBB. I expect a fair resolution.
Coffee Chaos: Dunkins has a Crème Brule iced coffee that is to die for. I want one right now and I am obsessed.
Until next week….be good or be good at it!
