Day 177: Hunker Down

I got some much needed rest today. Which is good because I decided to start reading the news again. I need all the strength I can muster.

Americans still can’t manage to take care of who needs it most. Just more of the “get rich while scamming the poor” shtick. It’s old and we’re tired of it.

Call you senators and pitch a fit. People are going to die if we don’t.

Day 175: Off Day

I woke up this morning and immediately started crying.

There wasn’t anything wrong that I was aware of. Tears were just happening. I couldn’t make them stop.

So, I cried.

As a result, I’m really sensitive today. I wanted to work on some essays today, but it’s very difficult to put sentences together.

I’m going back to bed.

Day 174: Pop

Father’s day isn’t a favorite of mine. I know my father, he still lives with my mother, but we haven’t had the best relationship since I was a little girl.

He’s a sexist, misogynist, anti-black racist piece of work. I get tired of calling him on his nonsense, so I avoid him.

Anyway, I hope you are having a pleasant day regardless of your parental situation.

Day 173: Locked Up

It’s that time again!

 

I’ve had these faux locs in my head for a while now and its time for them to come down. I know this is a lot of work, but it would be nice to have my own hair free again for a while.

I really love the faux locs. It’s a really cute look for me and I will probably get them reinstalled in a week or two. For now, however, I’m looking at several hours of tired hands and arms.

Wash day ahoy!

Day 172: Return

My son came home today. He says he had a good time but he cant tell me what he actually did. He tried, but he wasn’t very good at expressing himself verbally today. I just listened and was glad he was back. Normally, I need a break from him but several days is more than enough.

On the other hand, I’m starting to feel a little down. This happens when I spend a lot of time on my own. I enjoy my solitude most of the time, but I had a weird, lonely feeling today. I’m supposed to get some writing done but I’m having trouble finding inspiration.

Maybe I’ll feel better later.
