Last nights sleep was amazing. I woke refreshed and ready for today and the weekend. It’s going to be sunny and 70+ degrees and I’m so so ready for that.
I’ve put in a fair number of hours this week and this weekend we’re doing a release of the application so there’s more where that came from, but it’s all good because the semester is essentially over and no pressing requirements left for that.
I’ve also been assigned a new project and the timing is perfect for that because I need to now work 30+ hours a week to cover health insurance. It really connects dots when you work hour for hour and every hour counts toward something. Insurance for me and my kids is going to run roughly 600 bucks a month and that’s ‘X’ amount of hours. If i want to plan a trip somewhere, that’s ‘X’ amount of hours too.
I also realize after doing my taxes that my new company isn’t taking enough out for taxes. They are taking out what I told them based on my W4, but I figured wrong originally so I need to redo that form. Oh the joys of our beautiful, free country.
On that note.. quite the news today about Kimmy and The Moon! It’s a historic event indeed. Peace talks progress for the Koreas and the whole world watches what the media chooses to share about it. I’d like to believe it’s going in a positive direction and that there will be a true end to the conflict in those countries in the years to come.
But change is slow and you can’t undo 70+ years of unrest, disagreement, and hate with a handshake. As Tailor Swift says, “bandaids don’t fix bullet holes”. (Yes I did just quote Swifty to punctuate my point about North and South Korea 😜).
If I was the world I’d be holding my breath hoping Kimmy isn’t shaking with his right hand with the left behind his back hiding a finger on some other trigger. Again, we only see what the media lets through. Right, left, foreign, domestic political agenda filters being applied every step of the way to our eyes and ears. There’s very little chance one (ordinary) person can read and listen to enough channels to collect and analyze it all to determine a real truth. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
That event in Korea didn’t pop up on my phone news notifications. What did I get instead?… Norification that Cosby is guilty. Cuz that’s what I should care about? No!! I don’t give a shit about that case. That’s not news. For real.
Wow… this post took a sharp turn!
It’s time now for me to stop stepping and go enjoy this amazing Friday!
Cheers to Potential Peace on Earth, 🌏
