Nope. I’m just that terrible.

Still can’t shake the feeling of responsibility when mass shootings happen. It’s awful. I feel guilty when I hear the news. Which doesn’t make sense. But I feel like I’m somehow being akin to extremists in ways. It doesn’t make sense. It’s just awful.

My coworker recommended the publication Imprimis to me…

Read an article…

A little assertive but understandable. Discussed Disney at length and Disney’s stance on the new Florida education law. Disney and it’s corporate implementation of critical race theory.

I do disagree with those ideas. I have no problem with second graders not being prompted to understand sexual attraction. I have no problem with the sectarian prospects of critical race theory being questioned.

It’s institutional. Left leaning ideas are being embraced by the larger institutions of our day. With the same authoritarian perspective of any ruling class.

I’ll dabble in it.

I knew corporate influence in colleges inspired my own alcoholism. I know I’m willingly opposing that as an institution. I think I can get some fire fuel from that source.

I keep seeing things about replacement theory. Obviously I don’t agree with that. It’s fear based.

But critical race theory and theories of boogeyman racism also can create a fear based reaction from minorities. It’s a baited theory in a similar way. And to exclude violence in underprivileged minority communities when discussing violence in the racial dialogue in this country seems pretty dishonest.

Teenagers being shot in inner city streets is somehow less significant because the mass shooters are appealing to turning it into a performance?

Is any racial violence acceptable? We should say it’s not the fault of someone who shoots someone else because of slavery? It’s sectarian. It’s manipulative social tinkering.

Also I’m annoyed that my drug test had to get shipped to Virginia for the new job. I have nothing to worry about but because there’s the slightest bit of time of not being absolutely certain my mind creates worry.

I was actually up front with the recruiter and asked knowing that NY protects marijuana use in labor and she was very much in agreement that there’s no restrictions on employment.

But I don’t know…

Maybe I smoked heroin by accident? Maybe the “Medical Review Officer” in Kansas is systematically destroying careers to honor Joel Osteen?

I’m just perturbed because nothing is ever “finished”. Life is constantly incomplete. Hoping that it will seem more so with the new career move but somehow I doubt it. I’ll find things to frustrate myself.

But yay new job and boo for waiting on bureaucracy.


Bureaucracy is hard to spell.

I guess it’s just bureau with more letters.

But I went for a run and it felt great. Light on my feet. Probably going to bump it up to closer to three. Right now I’m around two and it feels pretty easy. Weather was mild though.

Went for another run. It was drizzly. I wore a coat. Felt good again.

Still waiting back on the drug test. Hopefully tomorrow. Hopefully not Monday.

The Mets have kept me so happy I’ve had a lot less to say. Alonso being full Alonso mode.

Upset about Scherzer, but honestly, I believe in our bats this season. Hopefully we’re not seeing a full AL transition. I think we’re still playing a well rounded game. Nothing wrong with relying on relief when you can actually back them up.

Maybe see another impressive prospect out of our farm league to fill in some gaps. I’d rather see that than converting relief.

Dominic Hamel?

I don’t know enough about it. Like when and how they come up.

We just brought up a closer who’s done very well.

So I guess the wait on my drug test is due to collectors at this particular urgent care instead of testers. That’s why they need to ship it. Stupid.

It’s a done deal ladies and douche bags…

Didn’t even get a call from the testing office. Was just cleared and ready to go. Start Tuesday. Just going to pop in Monday and use personal time for the rest of the day.

Need to clean my apartment. Haven’t been present because I’ve been worrying. Reorganize time.

I hope I don’t go crazy with stress again.

That’s never fun.

So supposedly this bike is going to give me free drinks. Magically.

I was at the bar last night and one of the cooks had to ride home with someone or something. I’m not really sure. But he didn’t want to leave his bike at the bar so he said if I held onto it he would but my drinks if I came in tonight.

Seems simple.

It was a pain getting it up the stairs and through my tiny kitchen. I don’t think I damaged it. It’s one of those electric assist bikes.

I tried it out last night. Pretty neat.

Makes me want to get my bike out.

But it probably looked like I just stole his bike. But I didn’t.

My bike tires have no air in them. Haven’t gotten it out in a couple years. There’s a swimming spot I could ride to though. Might be fun. Something to do.

Quick assessment putting air in the tires and going around the block is that it’s in fine working condition.

My bike. The ride to the swimming hole would actually be pretty tough though. But it would be good. And the river would feel like magic when I got there.

About fourteen miles. Water was frigid but a nice shock. There’s a hill that I had to walk some of on the way over and the way back.

Nice temperature but it’s supposed to get up to eighty or ninety by midday.

Gotta drop off laundry and return the bike. Might only get a thing of waffle fries out of it but that’s okay.

Biking is so fun though.

In a great mood after that.

Actually didn’t take my medicine this morning. Was feeling a bit manic, and my mind immediately goes to beer. Took it now and am enjoying one beer.

Good vibes though still.

When I get manic though I usually self medicate in excess and then come crashing down. Stupid cycle.

Shouldn’t have tried to convert relief.

Oh, I guess Trevor Williams is kind of a long relief/starter.

Still let the Rockies take over right off the bat.

8AM tomorrow…

Drank two beers and listened to the two sermons I missed this month while waiting for the official details confirmation email.

Was wondering about my capital a.m..

08:00 according to that article. 08:00 to 17:00 tomorrow. Much more logical.

First round loss in French Open, questioning if she will be at Wimbledon.

You think Osaka is done with professional tennis?

I haven’t heard much from her since her griping with the media.
