Yeah! Easter! Sorry to be so reverent, but, I’m not. Sorry, not sorry. It IS a beautiful day out there, and it’s SPRING (ahhhhhh Angels singing), so what’s not to like about Easter Sunday? Ah hell I’m probably gonna lose all my followers for that title. Not to worry. I’ll do me. You do you.
Speaking of the resurrection, my studies have been resurrected! I’m back in class, (Certified Ethical Hacker) four hours per day, cramming in labs in between time, and a little bit of work for Dr. Flaky, as well as being my parent’s maid two days a week. I’m busy! Where are the spoons! Can anyone send me some? I am running on pure caffeine and a low dose of Adderall that is just not cutting it. How I say how in the HELL do people do full-time jobs and LIFE?! I will soon be attempting this feat again, as soon as I pass this certification. I’m SCARED!!!
In other news, one of my good friends has gone to inpatient treatment. He got a wild hair at the age of 45 and decided to try micro-dosing acid. What led him to believe this was a good idea, I don’t know. From there, he went a little wild and bought mushrooms, ketamine and METH (all off the Dark Web). Which he proceeded to do from his desk at work. Well, micro-doses led to mega-doses, and he quickly developed a meth habit that took over (despite the fact that he insisted it wasn’t “making him high”) and he blew up his life! Which is all to say, don’t do drugs, people. And stay away from the Dark Web! It doesn’t offer anything good! I have spent many an hour worrying about this good friend. We have a psychiatrist in common, and he came clean and the psychiatrist calmly took it all in stride. Oh, these psychiatrists and their poker faces! How he didn’t call in the National Guard on him, I’ll never know. Dr. Drugs just took away his Adderall and sent him on his way. Cruel Dr. Drugs, cruel.
Today we have yet another family gathering. I am plagued by family gatherings. We have them just about every few damn weeks. It’s either someone’s birthday, or it’s a damn holiday like Easter, and we have to have a big meal, and everybody has to bring shit, and we all gather at someone’s house, and hopefully my cantankerous old curmudgeon of a Dad behaves … lately Mom hasn’t been doing too well. She is exhausted from taking care of Dad who is like a baby and Mom already had a heart attack and a stroke in December…a mild one of each but she’s working her way up to another. So one sister and I are going to take Mom on a walk today and my oldest sister is going to lay the verbal smackdown on Dad. Should make for fun times and a tension-filled meal. Oh, how I love family dynamics! It’s never as fun as tv shows. More like slow torture.
Finally, guess what? I joined Weight Watchers! Woo! There’s nothing like not being able to fit into your clothes to motivate a person. On my first day, I had yogurt and granola for breakfast, a fruit smoothie for lunch, and then I crashed and burned on dinner and had pizza. So, that’s how Weight Watchers is going. Fabulous! I guess the mere act of joining doesn’t get you much. Oh dear…I may have to change some behaviors here…
Well I have to go bake a pie for this damn Easter celebration. Hope you’re feeling as festive as I am! Glory to God in the Highest and all that shit! Peace out!
