Television Not Working; Time to Read

Good Afternoon, World!!! My television stopped working and not sure why. That means I get to catch up on some reading. I’m hoping my uncle or grandpa can help me with my television as I like to watch the news. I like to know what is going on in the world.

Granted the news can cause some anxiety but I like to know what is going on in the world. Despite the news being depressing, I think I will read a book. I have two choose books to choose from and i think I am going to read the singleton book ss the the other three books are a serious of books.

Another think I am going to to do is listen to a podcast about philosophy. I learn a great deal from philosophy. I listen to it by podcast. I’m glad I’m learning stuff about different subjects.

I think I need to go now. i am getting tired from my med. Thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out World!!!

Looks Like a Day to Not Watch News

Good Morning, World!!! Today is going to be a day I am not going to watch television. Well, maybe I will watch television later but not at the moment as all the major networks are talking about what the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) did earlier with over turning Roe V. Wade. I am not watching it as the decision make me angry and how politicians are going to politicize this decision especially when the mid term elections happen. All I want to do is watch the Today Show on NBC but it looks like that is not going to happen today.

Since I’m not going to watch television this morning nor the news this evening just to make sure my mental health stays in tact, I am going to read. I am going to read “DragonSong” by Anne McCaffrey. I am choosing to read this book in hopes it grabs my attention within the first two chapters as my concertation isn’t at its best.

I do not have much 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 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!!!

Manic Monday

Good Evening, World from Seattle, Washington. Today has been a Manic Monday for me. First I had to get up early and take an hour and a half bus ride for a job interview. Not sure how it went but if I didn’t get it, I would not be disappointed. So as of right now I a still unemployment, Not liking the fact I’m not working but it’s a way of things.

On to other things I’m glad I brought a book with me as it took me two hours from my job interview to my doctors office via public transportation just like getting to my job interview. I took book to read on the bus as well as I waited for my job interview and my doctor. Thankfully everything was on time today but I got a lot of reading done in my science fiction book.

When I got home, Billie my cat was thrilled to see me. I cuddled with him as I read more of my book. Reading appears to be helping me right now as it helps me now focus on the reality of what is going on in my world and the rest of the world.

I do not have much more to say in thing particular blog post. Thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader read my my blog.

The Very Little Things I Did Being Home Sick

Good Evening, World!!! If you read my last post you would know I stayed home sick. I have done very little to day. I did spend a lot of time cuddling with my cat Billie especially when I was reading. I read a few chapter in Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb. So far I am enjoying it. I’ve also been reading Wonder Woman comic books.

I’ve been reading when I have not been sleeping. I hope I am able to go to work tomorrow especially since I only have two week left before my lay off date. I really don’t like sleeping during the day because I am afraid I might not sleep at night.

I don’t have anything else to say except I need to eat dinner and then cuddle with my cat Billie again. Thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Too Sleepy to do Anything but Self Care

Good Evening, World!!! I’ve been tired and sleepy all day. The only thing I could do today was volunteer at PAWS Cat City which helped with my depression. Of course when i got home from volunteering spent some much needed time with my Billie Dean. Billie is such love bug.

I’m been tired and sleepy all day due to insomnia last night. So I decided to read most of the day with Billie in my lap. I read some science fiction books as well as comic books. I think the reading and cuddling with my cat, Billie helped a great deal with the sleepiness and depression.

Sometimes time just lay back cuddling with my cat and reading helps with my depression.. Depression sucks shit. At least self care is helping the depression a little bit. It’s not eve eight forty five in the evening here is Seattle and I am reading for bed.

Thank you reading my blog. I hope you all have a good night sleep. Good Night and Peace Out, World!!!

Not a Productive Day

Good Afternoon, World!!! Today has been a pretty unproductive day. I have been asleep all day due to the fact I waited to attend a twelve step meeting. I got the right time but wrong day. I did attend another twelve another meeting last night. I’m glad I went.

I also did some reading of some science fiction and fantasy books that I could not stop reading. I love those king of books that I couldn’t put down because they are so good. I spent four hours reading two different books last night.

On another plus note, Billie Dean, my cat was a happy camper because he got a lot of play time as well as some catnip. My cat is now wanting my catnip but he will have to wait to later this evening.

As far as attending twelve step meetings today, I am not sure if I am going to attend as I am really tired that I might not be able to fully focus on the meeting. That kind of goes for my chores I was planning on doing today. I just don’t have enough energy or focus to do my household shores.

I did get my daily walk in which is an accomplishment concerting how tired I am from not having any sleep last night due to my own doing. I at least completed something today. I also am planning on playing with my cat Billie Dean. He deserves all the play time he can get especially since he need to loose two to three pounds. I love my cat, so much It’s hard to believe that tomorrow will be his two you gotcha (adoption) date. I am love how loving and cuddly Billie is.

No Sleep Again In Seattle, Last Night (But It Was Completely My Fault)

Good Morning, World and Happy Saturday especially those who have it off. It is now 9:00am Seattle time and I got absolutely no sleep. But this time it was completely my fault and nothing to do with insomnia, neighbors arguing and fighting with each as well as an idiot neighbor pulling the fire alarm.

I stayed up attending Twelve step meetings as well as reading twelve step literature. Specifically the Big Red Book (aka the BRB). I am learning a great deal from the meetings as well as the literature. I am grateful that I am making this part of my new years goals as well as my part of my recovery.

I am also grateful that I had time to read some books that I am reading for pleasure. Specifically, I am reading science fiction books as well as some fantasy books. It helps me with my self care and escape from the realities this world how now a days. Books are a great way to escape from reality.

Another thing that kept me awake and my cat was thrilled about it which as I played with him a good portion of the night now he is sleeping like the beauty queen (or should say king) that he is. My at is so amazing and tomorrow is is two year official gotcha date. I love my babe boy Billie and he has help me a great deal with my recovery.

I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post. I will be going to a twelve step meeting before going to bet to take a nap. I also want to thank you the reader for reading y 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. Have a good weekend all and happy Saturday. Peace Out, World!!!

Yet, Another Post About my Depression

Good Afternoon, World!!! It is two days shy of a month since I last blogged. I do not have an excuse of why I haven’t blogged in nearly a month. Or at least an excuse that I feel okay with because there isn’t an excuse good enough for why I haven’t blogged.

Right now my depression is acting up. I am wondering if the increased depression is due to the time of year or due to Covid-19 or due to the up coming elections here in the United States or all of the above. No matter the reason the why I am dealing with increased depression symptoms at least I am aware of it and that it is currently a mild case for me. I know I shouldn’t be dismissive of my depression symptoms as being “mild,” its just that they could be much, much worse.

As far as trying to make myself feel better, spending time with my cat, Billie Dean is quite helpful. Billie is very much a cuddly cat and loves to spend as much time as he can on my lap. I love Billie so much and am grateful for his unconditional love. The love of an animal is the best feeling in the world.

Another way, I am going to do to help with the depression is to read. I most likely will read the fantasy/science fiction book that I am currently reading. Reading helps me cope with my reality. It helps me forget my reality for an hour or two at time without doing harm to myself.

I do not have much more to say as I want to go read. I want to thank you all for reading my blog. I am greatly appreciative that you have chosen to read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope you all have a great day. Peace Out, World!!!

A Two in the Morning Post

Good Morning, World!!! It is nine minutes after two in the morning in my corner of the world. After working on some are for almost an hour and a half, I decided to make me some food. I made me some spaghetti with homemade spaghetti sauce I made awhile back and froze. I froze the sauce because I live alone and always make too much. Anyway reheated the homemade sauce to put on my noodles. To go with my spaghetti, I made garlic bread. I love garlic.

After I am done writing this blog, I am going read the book I am reading. It is a science fiction book called Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey. So far I am really enjoying the book. I am going to be starting chapter five and look forward to what is to come in the book. In fact this book is the first in a series. Actually it is the first in a trilogy. I love book series for a number of reasons. One of which is I tend to get immersed in the story and with the characters so much that I hate to say goodbye. I know that sound silly but it is true.

I, of course will be reading and Billie Dean, my cat most likely will be curled up on my lap. I really enjoy the fact that Billie is a lap cat. Billie is such a cuddle bug and I appreciate it. With Billie, my cat, being such a cuddle bug, it has gotten me to slow down and be in the current moment.

I am hoping to stay awake till at least five in morning. I really do wish I could go to sleep now but I cannot. I cannot because I work a twelve and a half hour night shift on Saturday nights. That means I need to sleep during the day on Saturdays. I wish my shifts weren’t at night because it messes with my sleep schedule and I already have difficulties with my sleep as it is. Even though I don’t like night shifts due to the sleep thing, I am grateful that I have a job that I enjoy for the most part.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you all for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has an awesome Saturday as well as a great weekend. Peace Out, World!!!
