Ok, too much on my mind today so I’m going to give you a quick run down of a few of them…
#1 The People That Only Text When They Are Being Nosy
How come some people only text you when there’s something going on in your life that they want to know about? They follow you on social media or whatever and you NEVER hear from them (never get the messages that are just like “hey, haven’t heard from you in a while – how you doing?” or “what’s new?” or when they want to share something about THEIR lives. You only get texts or messages when you pop up in their news feed and they feel like being nosy. And then you answer them (like to tell them your dad died) and then you hear NOTHING else from them until you pop up in their news feed again. I’ll tell you why – because they don’t care. They are just bored and feel like being nosy. You don’t matter to them. So don’t let their actions (or lack of) matter to you.
#2 I’m Not A Bitch
I don’t know if you’ve heard but it’s pretty cool to be a bitch these days. It’s trendy to let your inner bitch fly. It’s considered fashionable to be a bitch (aka mean) online or in the real world. Whatever. That’s not who I am. And I’m not going to pretend to be. I’m actually pretty nice. I try not to hurt people. I purposefully won’t say/post things that I think might hurt someone’s feelings or offend them. But that’s just who I am. If I do something that hurts someone, I will actually feel bad about it. What a concept – having a conscience. I know it’s not cool and all. But ya. I don’t like it when people don’t like me and when people say things about me that is negative, well, ya, I feel bad. I might even cry. I’m just a sensitive little Cancer feeling out of place in a world where being a bitch is considered a good thing. I don’t get that.
(and I’m not talking about standing up for yourself or having “masculine” traits like being aggressive in the work place or being outspoken about a cause. I don’t consider that being a bitch)
#3 Money CAN Buy Happiness
“Money can’t buy happiness.”
You’ve all heard that saying before.
It’s bullshit. Money can buy happiness. When my bills are paid in full before they are due – I’m pretty damned happy. When I’ve been able to buy things for my kids or my granddaughter or whoever – I’m pretty damned happy. And when I’ve been walking a mile to and from work in the heat/rain/snow for two years and finally get us a car that runs decently and isn’t going to be in the shop every few months – I’m pretty damned happy.
So, I guess it depends on what your definition of happiness is. But personally, I think that only people who HAVE money can afford to say that money can’t buy happiness. It depends on what it is that you think will make you happy I guess. If you think a brand new car/a trip around the world/expensive jewelry/etc will make you happy…you’re right, money won’t buy happiness. But if you realize that some basic necessities are all you need to be happy, then money can definitely get you those things.
#4 The Cold From Hell
I’m so sick. Damn. This sucks. Stuffed up. Watery eyes. Cough. Sore throat.
I’ll be back at work tomorrow. Because that is what adults do. We take some cold medication, stuff our pockets with tissues, suck on a Halls and we go to work, even though we feel like shit.
Just a reminder for those who think that calling into sick because they coughed once is ok.
#5 I’m Still Writing
I didn’t meet my monthly goal of writing every day. But I’m just gonna keep on writing like I did. I only missed a few days. Nanowrimo is coming fast so I am going to figure out what to write next month. Meanwhile, I’m going to attempt to finish at least one novella this month.
#6 I’m Accepting Clients
