I took this pic on my walk today:
Woohoo! I’m off all next week! BUT, I’m moving on Friday. So it will be a very, very busy week. My mom just got a job so she won’t be able to help me pack as much as we had planned. *groan* I have a lot of stuff. I’ve lived here for about 5 years. I didn’t realize I had this much. More on this later.
I’m going to start with some controversial statements. CNN sucks. Yes, I said it. Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper are great people. I don’t know much about Wolf Blitzer, but he is a Washington Wizards fan, so some of him is okay. I’m not being sarcastic. I do like them. However, CNN is so boring. How can anyone watch it? So yeah, I agree with Trump on one issue. CNN is bad. Horrible.
MSNBC isn’t that left-leaning during the day. Only the night programming is liberal. I prefer MSNBC. I could watch that all day unless they are talking about Russia and then I can’t watch. They have personality! That is so much better programming. I don’t agree with everything management is doing at MSNBC, but that’s another issue. Hell, I prefer CSPAN over CNN. Well, I happen to love CSPAN. When I move to my mom’s house, I get to watch CSPAN!! 🙂 I haven’t had access to that in about five years.
I occasionally turn to Fox News, but I don’t stay long. I can’t stand lying liars. But there are fine people on both sides. 😉
More shocking statements: When people talk about global warming, I’m like BRING IT ON! I hate cold weather. Yes, I have an issue with people who claim to like the cold. Anyway, I suppose I should move, but it so nice here 70% of the time. Why should I move for 30% of the time that is cold? But I’m supposed to care about the earth more than my warmth. Well, sometimes I don’t. I don’t want it to ever be under 50 degrees. When I want to be a cold-hearted bitch, I think, “I don’t have kids. I don’t care about what happens to the earth when I’m gone”. But that’s only when I hate everyone.
As far as people claiming to like the cold. Yeah, right. They like it when they are in their warm ass house. One person I know claims to love when it gets colder. Okay. Now this person has to catch two busses when it gets freezing cold. Still like it? I didn’t think so. People are full of shit when it comes to winter.
I’ll save the rest of my controversy for later in this entry. 😉 I should be packing right now. If I weren’t sick, it would be so much easier. I feel worse in the afternoon. I couldn’t even finish doing my YouTube videos for the month for tarot. I think I only did 5 instead of the 12 I usually do.
*************BREAKING NEWS************* I finally contacted movers. CRY. They are charging me $487! I think the last time I moved it was $290. Um, yeah I probably told them I had too much. Sigh. I’m not moving my sofas. I’m throwing them out. Long story. I also told them I had a queen size bed. Nope. It is a full-size bed. And unfortunately, I’m moving my treadmill which might be broken. Ugh! Should I throw that out too? It is easy for me to say that because my mom has a treadmill.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Lauren Daigle, Pistol Annies, Tori Kelly, Carrie Underwood, Robyn, Carly Rae Jepsen, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Ariana Grande
I’m sick of this new trend of singers releasing a bunch of singles instead of releasing the album. I could use so many people for example. I’ll use Mariah. She has a 10 track album coming out. She has released FOUR of the songs already. Ugh. Stop already. FWIW, I like two of the songs. I just wish people would release the whole damn album.
TV of the week: Nashville, Survivor, Making a Murderer
Let me take you through my Making a Murderer journey. First, I must admit that I’m the opposite of Nancy Grace. Grace thinks everyone is guilty. I’m not like that. In the beginning, I was like everyone else. I was outraged that Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey were in prison. It was clearly a setup. Then I started doing my own research. Why didn’t Avery go back to work after Teresa (the victim) supposedly left? He NEVER just stayed home after 11 AM. But on the day Teresa was there, he just stayed home. Why didn’t he go back to work? He also didn’t get a receipt. Not a big deal, unless someone gets killed. He also lied about how many times he called Teresa’s number. I’m sure there are other things. But those are the main things that stick out to me.
Now, I think Brendan is innocent. Mostly. I still have doubts. He should have taken the plea deal. I hate when lawyers tell people to plea when they didn’t commit the crime. But that goes out the door WHEN YOU HAVE A VIDEOTAPED CONFESSION. Okay? If our justice system were fair, a person could get a fair trial despite a wrong confession, but that’s not how our “justice” system works. If the person has confessed, they should take the plea. I feel sorry for Brendan.
Now I’m watching the beginning of Making a Murderer 2. And I’m starting to believe both of them are innocent. Hah. So I dunno. It’s hard for me to think Avery is innocent. Why didn’t he go back to work???! Oh, have I already asked that? I’m sick of Avery and Brendan’s cases being connected. Avery could be guilty and Dassey could be 100% innocent.
Movie of the week: None
Podcasts of the week: The Lowe Post, So You Wanna Be a Witch, All In With Chris Hayes, True Crime Garage, Serial, Tara Brach, The Beat with Ari Melber
Blood Pressure for the week (LOL):
I did a bad job monitoring my blood pressure this week. I only did it twice since I last posted. The results were:
- 120/77 – October 31 @ 7:48 PM (meditated that morning)
- 120/74 – November 1 @ 7:31 PM (no meditation that day)
So the meditation theory is just a theory. I was listening to Carrie Underwood when I took my BP on November 1. Maybe that helped? Joking. So, my BP isn’t always high. It has to be consistently high to be considered hypertension. I was surprised at it being so low because I’m REALLY stressed out right now.
Books of the week:
- The Great Alone: A Novel by Kristin Hannah
- Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr. Joe Dispenza
- Essence of the Tarot: Modern Reflection on Ancient Wisdom by Megan Skinner
- Heavy: An American Memoir by Kiese Laymon
Plans for the Weekend:
Packing and grocery shopping. Besides packing, next week I’m going to vote on Tuesday, get my car inspected on Wednesday, and move on Friday. So I do have time to pack as long as I can breathe. I’ve canceled all tarot readings for next week. I still have one to do from this week. I will probably do that on Sunday. Glad to report that Google is sending more people to my tarot website. It’s still abysmal, but I’m new. Bing isn’t sending many people there yet. I’m a 99% Bing person. I don’t use Google.
Anyhow, tonight I’m going to pack more and throw stuff away. All I really want to do is get in the bed and read even though it isn’t even 7 PM. I’m packing 50% of my stuff and throwing the other 50% away. That might seem strange, but no, that has been accurate so far. I was going to donate my sofas, but they are in bad shape. I don’t want to give anything like that. I’m just going to get someone to throw all this stuff (TVs, computers, etc.) away. I wish I could do it myself.
Sorry, this is so long. If I had more time, I would go back to posting twice a week. Next week I might post twice since I’m not working. Who knows? Thanks for reading my rants. Have a great weekend. 🙂
