Hello!!! This is a a local street fair in the University District neighborhood of Seattle. This picture was back in 2019 months before the pandemic of Covid-19 hit. Sadly, the U-District Street Fair was cancelled for 2020 and 2021. Thankfully it came back this year; 2022. I attended this year but forgot to take pictures so I decided to use this picture. I hope you find it as amusing as I do and yes I had the permission to post.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 9: Writing & Not Writing
Hello, World!!! To write or not to write is very dependent on the day as was as the time and what is going on in my life at the moment. For example there are times I like to go out to eat and take my laptop with me to writer. I sadly was not able to do that when we had the not so lovely pandemic of Covid-19 which is sadly still around. I do some of my best writing when I eat in a restaurant and Covid-19 prevent me from doing that but that’s okay as I found other ways to write or not to write.
When I comes to blogging I either write in my bedroom or my recliner if my cat Billie doesn’t want to sit on my lap. I also like to blog out doors as it can give me similar inspiration like blogging at a restaurant does.
As far as not writing, sometimes my cat can get in the way but I am more than okay with that. Other reasons for not writing is due to work or my mental health is acting up. As far as blogging outside it is all dependent on the weather out side. Seattle is known to have gloomy weather days which sucks but I’ve learned to deal with it.
Resiliency Making an Appearance
Good Evening, World!!! The last two and half months have been challenging for me and many others due to the unexpected news off my employer closing and being laid off. It has been quite traumatizing for all involved and am beyond grateful for the support I have received from many different people including those, I never expected support from.
If you been reading my blog regularly the last two and half months, you know I’m getting laid off due to my employer closing. Due to Covid-19 I know most of my colleagues via zoom and same goes for the clients I serve. Any way, I am realizing the fact how resilient myself, colleagues and clients are while sharing the same trauma even though we are experiencing it in different ways.
As sucky as the pandemic has been, Zoom has become a love hate relationship. Zoom may has it’s problems but it sure has its ups. Lets start by the best part of Zoom meetings and appointments which is surprise visits from all the pets which includes on my end seeing (and hearing) birds, rabbits, cats, dogs, turtles, snakes, rats and a miniature horse. I think with the seeing all the animals people have as pets has built a rapport with others if the pandemic didn’t happen. I know my cat, Billie, has helped my clients in Zoom appointments. Hell, Billie and my colleagues pets have helped ease a lot of meetings when they (pets) make an appearance in meetings.
Not only have pets including my own cat Billie has helped with my resiliency, music has helped a great deal. The last two and have months my recovery play list has helped a great with the resiliency part of my recovery. My recovery play list appears to be the play list I’ve been listening to the most since I found out I was being laid off. So music helping so much just my cat Billie is.
I don’t have much more to say except that my cat, Billie (and other animals/pets I see in Zoom meetings) and music have been helping me a great deal with being resilient. I also want to thanks you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciative from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Honoring Those Who Served Our Country
Good Afternoon, World!!! It has been just over two years of waiting for my grandpa to take the Honor Flight. Sadly, each and every time it got cancelled due to Covid-19. The pandemic ruined a lot of things for people including those who passed away awaiting to do the honor flight. I am beyond grateful that my 91 year old grandpa gets to go and that the woman he sat by is celebrating her 100th birthday today. I am thrilled that all those who were able to make the honor flight. I hope our veterans have the time of their lives as they gave us the freedoms we have.
I just wanted to thank everyone in the United States and their home countries for fighting for what they believe in. Everyone who serves their country deserves respect and a hug if they are up for a hug.
Thank you for reading my blog. Most importantly lets respect our military even if we don’t agree with each out. Our militaries keep us free and keep up protected. Peace Out, World!!!
Ugh!!! Someone Pulled the Fire Alarm, Again
Ugh!!! I am not a very happy person at the moment. Hell, many of my neighbors are not happy either. It is just after two o’clock in the morning here in Seattle and it is raining. Anyway, a neighbor pulled the fire alarm, once again because another neighbor was not wearing a mask because of the mandate Washington State till has till late March.
Anyway, many of us if not all of us neighbors are not too happy with the neighbor that pulled the fire alarm. Not only did it wake us up but many of us have pets that we need to evacuate with us humans. For me, I make sure I take my cat when I evacuate when the building fire alarm goes off. I’m not about to leave my cat in my apartment just in case it’s an actual fire. Thankfully this time around it was not. I do have neighbors who have snakes, frogs or fish and they are harder to evacuate than a cat or dog is.
Anyway, the firefighters are not exactly that happiest of people with this neighbor and I don’t blame them. They had to get in a middle of a fight between the neighbor who pulled the fire alarm for no reason and another neighbor. That means the cops were called again. The cops were going to show up anyway but since a fight broke out they arrived more quickly.
Long story short the neighbor who started the fight just got a warning while the neighbor that pulled the fire alarm got arrested. He most likely will be out later today or tomorrow since it is a misdemeanor. I just wish he would stay in jail longer and/or apartment management would evict the neighbor that keeps pulling the fire alarm.
It’s a good thing that I don’t start work till twelve noon, Seattle time today. That means, I get to sleep in a little. That’s if Billie Dean my cat doesn’t wake me up to be fed as he has plenty to eat in his bowls at the moment or to wake me up to play. I really love cat Billie. He has been a life saver for me.
I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If if was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Idiot Alarm Pulling Neighbor Finally Arrested
Good Fucking, Morning, World!!! The idiot neighbor who admits to the firefighters that he pulls the fire alarm because other neighbors aren’t wearing their mask because of Covid-19 finally got his ass arrested. It’s only taken well over a year of him doing this for him to finally get his ass arrested.
Now my other neighbors, myself and our pets including my cat don’t have to worry about a fire alarm going off for no fucking reason. We don’t have to evacuate the build with our pets and making sure are disabled neighbors get evacuated due to the false alarms of this neighbor pulling the alarm due to other neighbors not wearing their mask. My neighbors as well as myself and everyone’s pets are finally relieved that we don’t have to worry about this neighbor pulling the fire alarm.
The police and firefighters appeared as happy as me and my neighbors are that he finally got arrested. Dude sadly doesn’t understand why he got arrested. I personally think he needs a psychiatric evaluation but that is my opinion.
I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Idiot Neighbor Pulled Fire Alarm, Again
Good Fucking Morning, World!!! Hell, it’s barely after midnight here in Seattle and my stupid ass neighbor pulled the fire alarm again because a different neighbor from last night was not wearing their mask in the common areas of the apartment building. As much as I wish people would wear their mask that is NOT a FUCKING reason to pull the fire alarm.
The firefighters are just as angry as we neighbors are because this idiot at least admits he pulls the alarm but all the fire department can do is fine the asshole and asshole isn’t paying the fines. The fucking Seattle Police can’t do shit because puling the fire alarm when it is not an emergency is only a misdemeanor and the cops aren’t arresting those with misdemeanors because the fucking county jail are accepting misdemeanor arrest due to this stupid ass pandemic know as Covid-19. All I want is some fucking sleep.
Not only does the fire alarm affect me and my neighbors it affects the animals in the building including my cat, Billie. He is one very unhappy camper when the fire alarm goes off and I don’t blame him. He just doesn’t exactly understand what is happening and why he needs to put into his carrier and leave the apartment which is his home. I feel really bad for my cat, Billie Dean as well as the other animals in this building.
Well this rant of a blog post is over with. I don’t have anything else to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end that you the reader, read my blog. If it was not for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Still Awake 2 Hours After Fire Alarm
Good Morning, World!!! I am not as angry as my last post. I am however tired as hell because I haven’t been back to sleep and I need to be up for work in an hour and half. Anyway, to update on what’s been going on the last two hours, the drama continues. Thankfully no more fire alarms pulled.
Sadly, there have been fights against the person who has pulled the fire alarm due to other neighbors not wearing mask due to the pandemic known as Covid-19. Because of these physical fights the police have come and “talked with all involved.” Yet again, the Seattle Police did nothing. The idiot who pulled the fire alarm a couple of hours ago got the shit beat out of him by other neighbors to where the idiot neighbor needed to go to the hospital and nobody is getting arrested nor have charges pressed against them. Seattle Police aren’t doing their fucking job. My taxes pay their pay checks and I don’t feel safe because they are doing their fucking jobs.
I need to get going to see if I can get an hour and a half hours of sleep before having to get up for work. I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post. My cat is giving me comfort through all this. I love my cat. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out World!!!
Rudely Awaken by Fire Alarm
Good Fucking Morning, World!!! I am fucking angry as hell right now. I was sound asleep and the damn fire alarm went of again. I’m angry because an idiot of a neighbor pulled the fire alarm again because another neighbor was not wearing a mask in a common area of our apartment building. I fucking don’t understand why this neighbor has to pull the fire alarm every fucking time he sees another neighbor who doesn’t wear a mask. It’s fucking bullshit.
The fire department is just as angry as my neighbors and I. The fire department has fined this neighbor so many time it’s not funny. The sad yet good thing is the dude admits to the fire fighters. Sadly, the fire fighters have been here so many time because of this dude that they now have the cops come to “talk” to him. Plus, the fire fighters fear for this neighbors safety because other neighbors want to “beat the shit out of him.” I’m not one of those people but I do feel like screaming at time. Pulling the fire alarm is a misdemeanor crime and the cops won’t arrest him because the county jail won’t accept people with misdemeanor crimes due to Covid-19 which is fucking bullshit.
Okay my rant is over. I don’t anything else to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
Happy Friday, World!!! Today marks two todays since I officially met my cat Billie Dean while doing a volunteer shift at PAWS Cat City even thought I didn’t officially adopt Billie till February 6th of 2020. Which was about a month and a half before lockdown happened due to Covid-19 the dreaded pandemic everyone wants to go away.
Even though today is the the two day anniversary of officially meeting Billie Dean while volunteering, I put him on hold for two days so I could adopt my cuddly, loving, talkative, fifteen pound kitty who knows how to love me unconditionally as well as a sweet cat who loves everyone especially me. I am grateful that in two days it will be the two year gotcha (adoption) day or Billie. I love my cat so much an am grateful that I was able to adopt Billie right before the lockdown happened and I truly think Billie helped me through the lock down from this stupid pandemic.
In fact today was the first day back to the office after have Covid-19 myself. My colleagues mainly discussed our cats today and how loving they are and how helpful they are for our own mental health. In fact my colleagues have been coming friends to me which is a good thing.
Since becoming friends with colleagues we decided to end our Friday and begin our weekend with going out to dinner. We has some pretty good food from a restaurant across the street from our work. Great food and awesome happy hour drinks at a cheap price.
Having the support of colleagues that are becoming friends as well as the love of my cat Billie surely help me with my every day life as well as my mental health symptoms. It’s great to have friends, colleagues and pet to help me through my depression.
Having great support is awesome. I do not not have much more to say in this particular blog post except thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. I am also grateful for it being Friday and the start of the weekend for me. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great weekend and a happy Friday. Peace Out, World!!!
