all the best thoughts, A. the flu is never fun, especially when it elevates stress levels and aggravates mental/emotional conditions. i can see your point in your entry, but i personally had to give up thinking of massacres in those terms a long time ago because i found that doing so reduced me to utter despair with no desire to carry on and an inability to function. i had to stop watching the news. not because i didn't care. because i cared too much.

Ahhh, I'm easy. I love you regardless. And it's not like "Barnyard" is part of our collective zeitgeist, anyway. You're forgiven for not knowing :) Hey hey, thanks for the follow on WordPress! I can't say as I deserve it, and am flabberghasted every time I see someone has read my stupid meanering scribbles. But I'll take it! (Oh, and I've never locked my diary at any point. Everyone's welcome to stare and point.) Thanks again! :)
from i-am-jack :
Thank you for your supportive note and concern. Honestly I am kind of worried about myself right now.
from i-am-jack :
Your writing has really been powerful lately and I am feeling so much of what you're saying.
from dangerspouse :
"Musikoid in Orbit"! PLEASE tell me you got that from "Barnyard in Orbit", the early Moog piece by Perrey and Kingsley! I will love and respect you forever it you did :)
from dangerspouse :
Hey, thanks for the note! Lol - I had to go back and look at my profile myself then. It's been so many years, I'd forgotten what it said! :)

ah, the days where everything that goes wrong does. Sadly, we can't escape it. I have trouble finding things too. I know, not to the same extent, but I can somewhat relate. I find what helps is designating a specific place in my apartment for everything. That way you can train your mind to put it in that exact spot all the time and your brain will automatically remember where it is. For example: My phone is always located on my night stand closest to my side of the bed. If it's not there then it's on the red table outside my room on the charger. My hair brush is always located on the back of the toilet between the basket of toiletries and the sink counter. Little things like that can really help organization as well. I hope this helps somewhat. .hugs.

Thanks for the note Andy. I agree with you in all you said. I did a lot of prayer and Bible reading for many months to come to this decision. I don't think God wants me to destroy the friendship completely that's why I said it's only temporary until he can sort his life out.
from i-am-jack :
I don't think you should delete the most recent entry. It was really powerful on a lot of levels.
from illusionless :
I meant note not entry lol
from illusionless :
Reversing of old behaviors, absolutely! I am glad you have your motivation back though. :) It always feels good to have drive backing you up! Part of me was worried that my last entry might have offended you. After posting I thought it sounded a bit harsh, but I'm glad you didn't take it that way. I certainly didn't mean it that way. I guess I just got paranoid. It happens.
from illusionless :
Lack of motivation and creativity sucks! I know I've been there. When you don't feel like doing something and keep waiting and waiting to feel like it. I'm reminded of this quote by Stephen King "Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” I think he means, and is something I'm still working on accomplishing, is to try and separate our emotions from our tasks that need to get done. Like I often wait for inspiration to strike before I start writing when in reality the writing should start first and then inspiration comes while you're doing that task. Whatever it may be. My biggest hurdle is applying it to keeping my apartment clean. ^_^ Do the task whether you feel motivated or not and then inspiration will follow and if not then at least you got something constructive done! :) Hope this helped a bit.
from i-am-jack :
I am all too familiar with getting nothing done and not being motivated. When coffee is not doing anything, you know it's a slow day. I hope you feel better and more energized soon.
from i-am-jack :
I have been reading but not leaving notes since I was not sure what you were doing with them. It looks like you are taking new ones, so I will leave them too unless you say otherwise. The dish soap/shampoo comment made me laugh. Yeah I can not say I ever washed dishes with shampoo. I have however used hand soap as an all purpose (except dishes and the floor) cleaner when I was really strapped. My landlord's sister gifts everyone she knows with excessive amounts of Bath and Bodyworks handsoap. I have given so much away and still have more than I will ever use. As for the underwear, I remember that story! I am weird, sometimes I wear it and sometimes I don't. I wear it in the winter though because for what it's worth it is another layer of warmth. I can imagine giving up on it though, since it's not essential in a survival way.

I'm really happy that things are going so well. 150 days is a huge accomplishment! I hope everything continues to flourish!
from jimbostaxi :
The guy leaves Saturday I spoke to him about the situation and he says he’s consulted a lawyer and others and since she’s not a threat to herself or imminent danger nothing can be done.
from illusionless :
Wow! I've never heard of the Dunning-Kruger effect. I wonder how someone knows they have it or not? Could that be something I have? I wonder how one would test for that. Hey, try not to worry about things. Even if this person doesn't agree that more work needs to be done then you can find someone else who will put in the effort it deserves.
from jimbostaxi :
Ok Ty I will!
