Free time?

White people are really something. And that’s all I have to say about that. I might say more. Okay, I’ll say I find their “learning” exhausting. I guess they have to learn out loud, or it didn’t happen?

I am posting today because I got rid of the client paying me the lowest rate and taking up all my time! So glad. I have more time now. Now I just have to use my time wisely this weekend.

I’m really motivated to blog today because I figured out why I’m tired all the time. BIRTH CONTROL. I thought it was the anti-depressant!! Nope. This answer should bring relief. But it doesn’t because BC has completely stopped my period, and I love it. I hate having a period more than anything. So…I’m willing to be tired.

However, this morning I was so tired that I physically could not work. I’ve been moved to a new department at work*, so I’m in self-paced training and was able to go back to sleep for 40 minutes. But in two weeks THIS WILL NOT BE AN OPTION. I work at a company big on production, so I can’t just say I’m tired and go back to bed.

The good news is that Monday through Thursday, I was able to get up at 5:35 AM and go to work. That’s good. But what happens if today’s tiredness occurs again?

I’m not going off birth control. If I were physically unable to work every day, I wouldn’t have much of a choice. But as of today, I’m just going to try to push through. The funny thing is I got enough sleep last night (7 hours), so sleeping enough wasn’t the issue. I am having problems sleeping because my room is around 110 degrees at night, so it’s hard to sleep.

Anyway, I am going to do some research on what I can do besides going off birth control. It’s a hormonal thing. I’m not going to cook, so if that’s the only answer: fuck it. I will be very, very, unhappy if I have to go off birth control. I FINALLY stopped my period, and then two years later, I start having side effects??! 😦 I’ve been on this med for three years, but my period didn’t stop until about a year ago.

*I was moved to a new department at work. It’s a good move, and I got lucky. Where I’m working now, can’t be outsourced to another country. Unfortunately, the department I used to work for is probably going to be gone in two months or so! Yes, I got lucky, but I still have to be awake (LOL) and do a good job.

Politics/Current Events 2020: I think Joe is going to pick Kamala or Susan Rice as his VP. I don’t have an opinion on Rice. I think I’ve shared a lot of thoughts on Kamala. Not a fan. I don’t like what she did as a prosecutor. I don’t like many prosecutors, so no shock there. But her past is not good with me. Due to all this stuff going on, Joe is probably going to win.

Yay, for all the beheadings…of the historical statues. Richmond, VA, did a lot. LOL. They threw Christopher Colombus in the lake. Jefferson Davis is gone.

I will probably have more to say later. I have pretty much tweeted everything I’ve wanted to say.

This week I…

Music of the week: Ariana Grande, Rachel Platten, Stacie Orrico, Alessia Cara, Ellie Goulding, Jessica Simpson, Keith Urban, Lil Wayne

TV of the week:  Grey’s Anatomy

Podcasts of the week:  Dateline, Truth & Justice, Undisclosed, The Lowe Post

Books of the week: Nothing really. 

I plan to get some reading done this weekend and next week. It is hard to read and be in training at work at the same time. When I’m not in training, I listen to podcasts, books, music, etc.

Weekend Plans: Last week, I hired someone as a virtual assistant. She lasted for about a day. Shit. I just wrote a bunch of crap, but it got deleted. ARGH. Anyhow, The VA I hired didn’t have any VA related skills, but I wanted to help her. I’m not going to say I’m never going to hire someone with no experience again. But at that time, I needed experience. I’m not interested in hiring now. I want to do the work myself since I now have the time. Plus, I need to get practice in. If a client doesn’t like my work, they are free to go elsewhere.

This weekend I’m going to write out my processes, email all my clients and try to get things more explicit. I’m kind of scared to email my clients because they might give me a bunch of work and ruin my weekend. LOL.

So I’m basically working on my own business this weekend. I’ve been neglecting everything because I’ve been working for others.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading. 🙂
