Priorities: Adulting is Tiresome

Image
Why is it, whenever I want a glass of water, my Brita is empty, a cup of coffee, my Keurig is empty, hungry, my refrigerator is empty...? I always seem to bump into this problem and never seem to fix it. This is some course I obviously missed in high school...Adulting 101...and am learning it the hard way. Perhaps I am just lazy, like I look like I am (at home). No one at my work would ever call me lazy. As a matter of fact sometimes I think I am defunct of energy when I come home due to the fact I waste it all at work. In the work place I am considered to be overly organized, to have a strong work ethic, "a beast" under pressure. My work space must be clean to be able to work. Funny how my life space is messy and my life is the same.




When I turned 40 I felt I was in control of my future, newly single, living on my own, bright future shining in my shaded eyes. That decade moved so fast it has literally hit me in the ass, as it slammed the door and 50 shoved it's presenc…

Signals

I have noticed that in my ever aging brain, I am more and more bothered by petty things. I admit, this has probably added extra gray hairs to my scalp, but for some reason, I enjoy the inner conflict. It seems the top of the list is the inability of vehicle drivers to use their signals when turning.

Humans have been using signals for communication forever, regardless of their success. Hand signals, sign language, eye contact, body language, fashion; all giving off visual signals to other humans. All animals do it. But human being are starting to play and evolutionary games of Russian roulette with their signal misuse, especially while traveling in a steel box with wheels.

Traffic is hideous everywhere in the world. People driving are becoming worse with the amount of distractions in the world. Kids today are capable of multitasking far better than any generation. Remember when speed reading was 'a thing'? Did those people scanning the pages of a book remember what they read?…

2018 - Should I Return From My Blogging Hiatus?

Image
Well. It's been a very long time since I've "picked up a pen" and divulged my thoughts in a blog. For some reason, I decided to come back here a reread some of my work, and wondered why I stopped. I admit I was busy, lazy, out of stuff to talk about. I figured no one was reading and just stopped. Was it a need for attention? Was I getting the desired amount of focus? Maybe, but I forgot that I liked to write and share.

Everyone goes through life drifting from one friend to another, one job to another, one interest to another. I was a Star Wars fan, a bald eagle watcher, a urban cycling commuter. Now, not so much. Have I drifted away from things I love due to laziness? Perhaps, but maybe it's time to return to my blog. Lots of things have changed in the time I've been away. Everything from a "partner in crime", a new cat and dog, a new job, and loads of new experiences.

I also have lots of new "rants", timely at my age! Getting older brings o…
