Well, hello there...I realize a new blog posting is long over due so here goes with my world soon to be famous snippets and bits of information from my world.
(1) I'm still NOT biting my finger nails. The nails have grown out well and I need to post a new picture of them for you to see. Not bragging or anything but the nails do look a lot nicer than they used to be. No longer torn up and looking ugly. No longer bleeding or the pain I used to have when I'd bit them down low and then have pain because of that. No way now...they are looking good. I've noticed now that I scratch myself because of the length and probably will trim them again soon...but I hope I can say very soon that I'm a reformed finger nail biter. And it's pretty nice...but they still look tempting at times to bite and look ugly again. I guess this is just repressed energy or focus on something like that.
(2) I'm still at work at the same company I used to work for but I'm having serious doubts about the company's long term viability here. I enjoy the job very much...well most days at least but I tend to think this company will close its doors here and move back up north or send jobs to another outsourced company that can do the labor more cheaply. I work in a contact center of sorts providing help to the center manager and staff and agents and also provide outside support to remote users and other persons within the company in other states. I don't travel with the company which I'm not really overly disappointed in so that makes me happy. I don't like to fly and I would prefer not to have to drive 700 miles to get to a destination. And this position is only straight hours, set hours, Monday to Friday without having to be on call or have extra duty work outside of a normal 40 hour work week. The only call people have a higher ranking and job title and that also suits me just fine.
(3) I am also volunteering in another capacity with access to new technology and software and hardware applications my current position does not offer. The volunteering is two days a week for four hours a day. So by the end of the week, like this week, it's Thursday, I'm pretty worn out and sleepy. And last night I didn't sleep as well as I could have liked because I find as I get older, the ability to wind down from work and clear the mind is more and more difficult. But it's really not that bad I say. Just need to wind down the mind without prescription sleep aids and melatonin and other natural sleep enhancements.
(4) For those of you who may remember, the TV show Alice from the 1970's was on Netflix so I rented a one disk of the greatest shows deemed by some person.
Below is a clip of the show:
And the one particular episode had a football player tell Linda Lavin the star of the show that he was gay...and Linda Lavin has a son named Tommy. Once this football player tells him he's gay...Linda Lavin has doubts about the gay guy taking her son on a fishing trip. But Linda Lavin's character relents and they say they will remain good friends.Which is nice but i seriously doubt most people will come around that quickly...but I have to realize it takes time for people not exposed to us gay people to feel differently about us. But it's still amazing for a show from the 1970's to have something so adult like gay themes back then. If I had remembered this episode in my past, maybe I could have grown up happier and more adjusted. But I think that would also mean I'd need more love and acceptance from my parents...which I really don't have nor had growing up. But that's another story...a different story.
Thanks for stopping by...as always promise to write again soon!!
