Hallelujah! I’m off from my full-time job all next week. Party time! 🙂 Yes, I still have part-time work and school work, but I will have more time to focus on those things. YAY!
People would often allude to horrible things about Harvey Weinstein. I wanted it to be his personality. A lot of people in Hollywood are difficult. But sexual harassment? Too bad. He does good work for social causes PLUS I love his movies. I guess I shouldn’t watch his movies anymore. Sigh. Almost all the movies I would even consider watching are Weinstein movies, so that leaves me with nothing. So far, I haven’t read the NY Times piece because I know it would disgust me further. All I need to know is that he has sexually harassed many women. Got it. I will probably read the article over the weekend.
And WTF was Cam Newton thinking laughing at a female reporter’s question? Dannon dropped him, and I’m not surprised. Who mostly buys yogurt? WOMEN. Geez.
Enough about everything else, let’s talk about me. 😉 Um. Someone is trying to harass me. I don’t feel harassed, but I believe that is his intention. I don’t want to call him a neighbor. People use that term loosely. Too me a neighbor lives very close. He lives more than 120 yards from me. That’s bigger than a football field. I consider him a person that lives in the neighborhood but not a neighbor.
Anyway, he has been following me to the park on his moped, or whatever that thing is. And one day last week he parked his moped in front of my house when he knew I was walking back from the park. On Tuesday, he was on his way home in his truck as I was walking to the park with my dog. He saw me, went home, changed clothes and got on his moped, and we were on the same pathway at the park. He is basically stalking me.
I don’t like it and I do kind of feel stalked. I don’t believe he would do anything to hurt me (like kill or rape me). I don’t want to change my schedule because my park schedule works with my work and my dog. I like him to go to the park in the afternoon to relieve himself. I could do a quick walk at lunchtime, but that would be very rushed. However, I am considering doing that on some days.
I am very thankful to be off from work next week because now I can change up my schedule a lot. I can walk my dog after lunch with no rush. I can walk him at 10 AM if I want. We can explore the park. I assume Mr. Stalker won’t be there because he won’t see me going to the park. I’m glad he can’t see when I leave. That would bother me much more. He can only see me when he happens to be driving home when I’m walking to the park.
I haven’t done anything to this man. My mom’s scared he is going to do something to me. I had to tell her just in case something does happen even though I’m 99% sure nothing will.
I found out one of my high school classmates passed away in April. 😦 He was an army vet. I would think about him all the time, so I was shocked to hear his name on the local news. Shocked and saddened But now I believe he is in a much better place. I don’t believe in heaven, but I do know he isn’t suffering anymore. He had PTSD according to his mother. And he was also mostly paralyzed, but not from the war. I’m so glad he is out of his hell.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8): Demi Lovato, Shania Twain, Lady Antebellum, Miley Cyrus, JoJo, Justin Timberlake, Ellie Goulding, Cheat Codes
Not really feeling the new Miley. However, I am loving the new Demi album:
Demi Lovato – Tell Me You Love Me (live)
TV of the week: Grey’s Anatomy, RHONJ
Movie of the week: I finally saw La La Land. I hated the ending!! Overall, the movie was just okay. I liked the old school vibe. I went into this movie totally blind. I had no idea it was a semi-musical. I hate jazz. Sorry. I know that statement is blasphemous to some people. Anyway, I’m glad Moonlight won best picture over this movie.
I also watched Gaga: Five Foot Two. I’m not a big Lady Gaga fan but I love music docs. It was authentic. It made me see her as a real person. One reason I wasn’t a fan was because of her antics. Her latest album is raw and just her. Anyway, I enjoyed it.
Books of the week: Now reading:
- Behold the Dreamers: A Novel by Imbolo Mbue
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
- The Vietnam War: An Intimate History by Geoffrey Ward and Ken Burns
My dad fought in Vietnam. I would love to know his take on all of it. But war is not something I would just bring up. Especially Vietnam. So many people died. Some of his friends died. From what I know of the war, I am disgusted by what happened. However, I am reading this book to hear from ALL sides. I want to know everything.
From the book:
Nothing, certainly not our film or book, can make the tragedy of the Vietnam War all right. But we can, and we must honor the courage, heroism, and sacrifice of those who served, those who died, and those who participated in the war against the war.
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren
Plans for the Weekend: Woohoo! I’m celebrating on Friday afternoon. No more full-time work for 9 days straight. Okay, I’m not really celebrating. On Friday evening, I’ll be working at my part-time job and cleaning my living room. Another fun Friday night.
This weekend will be normal. I’m going grocery shopping, doing school work and working. I have a lot of reading for class to do and I really, really, want to finish the Vietnam book before it is due at the library. The book is over 600 pages, and I only have a few weeks to read it. I’m reading 3 library books at once, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish all three.
I’m not doing anything special on my week off. Besides going to the park daily, I’m only going out to get the Depo injection. Fun times. Well, I gotta go. I’m getting ready to read in bed. No more work tonight.
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend! 🙂
