    I just found out that the COVID vaccine needs a booster after six months and my country hasn’t even finished vaccinating everyone yet and people already need boosters. Also found out my cousin doesn’t want the vaccine. I haven’t figured out if she’s in to the anti-vaxxer stuff or just really scared of needles.

    I love my new haircut (it got clippered). It's made me feel like I'm being a bit more true to myself.

    I heard about the booster jabs and I’m just across the water in Scotland so I know about us being all behind.

    Could be other reasons she doesn’t want it she scared maybe??

    From what I have seen on news, not the internet. They are recommending boosters for people with compromised immune systems, such as people who are getting chemo or other treatments that lowers their ability to fight off illness.


    I would like to skip fall, and go into snowmaggedon so maybe the wild fires in Cali and Oregon get put out, because I am physically and mentally exhausted from spending months in heavy wild fire smoke haze. Visibility is under five miles it is so thick some days.

    Where the fucking hell is Donald Trump today? What engagement is so pressing for him that he doesn't need to honour the almost 3,000 people who were murdered in his country 20 years ago?

    Look, I definitely am not trying to disrespect anyone who died that day. They should all be here with us today and needless violence is a blight on humanity. Still the problem goes way beyond Trump. We have politicians over here blocking funding to schools over requiring masks. Playing politics over efforts to stem a virus that has already killed more Americans than we lost to combat in WW2. When your political parties act like opposing sports teams rather than governing bodies, this is the result.

    As an American, I'd much prefer him to keep his mouth shut and not be around at all ever. Also, probably the same place he was while 600,000 Americans died of COVID: Golfing.

    Never has politics especially related to Covid has been this intense in my family. A shame to see people cut each other out because of it.

    I remember never wanting to go to bed early as a child. Now I look forward to it, it’s my favourite time of day. It’s more interesting now with my kindle and iPad but I still love sleep.

    I am thinking that my thinking is squirrelly today. My mind is jumping from topic to topic.

    I would like to see a like button for posts here, so that I can acknowledge and or agree with a post without having to quote each and reply, especially when there are tons in one thread.

    I wish people would get along without regard to political standing.

    It's clear, for a change outside. Maybe I should go for a walk.

    Fire drills need to be added to our safety procedures.

    What is for dinner tonight?

    I think I'll make a blog entry, haven't done one of those in ages!

    The ADHD is STRONG in me today!

    so true. How come we would do anything as a child to stay up later and the worst punishment in the world would be going to bed early now sounds like the best gift you could be given!!!!

    Some days you're the penguin. Some days you're the leopard seal. And some days even if you are the leopard seal there's a pod of orcas out there waiting.

    I'm thinking that I'm tired and need to sleep, or tired of life at this moment. Eat-Sleep-Work etc.

    I need something to re-light the fire again :pensive:

    Yeah I've been feeling this way on and off lately, I think that it can be easy to fall into and it's only natural to feel bored of the everyday now and then. I'd recommend making a small change, perhaps discovering a new interest or diverging from your routine in some way even if it's something as trivial as changing what you have for breakfast. However, it is important not to overlook basic needs. I know that I have mistaken sluggishness for boredom before, because I have unintentionally neglected self-care (such as forgetting meals, not getting enough exercise, lack of natural light having an effect on my mood, over-sleeping or not sleeping enough etc).

    I'd recommend checking in on yourself and working from there. Such moods can be annoying because it can be difficult to pinpoint what needs to change, but you know something needs to change and the vagueness of such a desire is irritating. I hope you find the spark you are looking for.

    Thank you for that, I think you're right. I think it's time to plan a vacation for next year, I'd love to go back to the US again.

    I'm thinking about how in my memories of two traumatic events that happened, I can't recall their faces. Did my mind mentally block them out as a way of coping and I remember what they looked like somewhere in my brain, or did I really just forget? It's a bit jarring when the memories resurface in nightmares and I recall them with such vivid detail, but the faces are almost blurred. I can't focus on them. Usually I am good at picturing faces and can imagine faces down to the last freckle (so long as I've met a person at least twice), which is why it's so jarring for me when I am unable to do so.

    On an completely unrelated thought, I hope that I am able to find a job soon.
