I haven’t blogged earlier this weekend because I don’t have much to say. Haha. I have a feeling that will change soon. Unfortunately.
Well, Marianne Williamson made the debate stage!! Too bad she’s going to be on the same stage as Joe Biden. Unlike Kamala, Pete, and Bernie I don’t think she will be attacking Biden. I’m guessing she will focus on her message. However, it will be all about Joe.
I’m looking forward to both nights of the debate because I’m a debate whore. 🙂 I’ll watch any debate.
Ugh, this guy on Facebook is so annoying. He says things like, “hi” and then he’ll say “how are you?”. Okay. Then he’ll say, “hi beautiful” and I’m all turned off. LOL. Stop already. Every time he says something like that I don’t respond. Does he not get it? Sigh. I know I should unfriend him or block him or whatever people do on Facebook. But I don’t do that. I already muted his posts for 30 days.
I’ve been on FB more in the last 2 months than ever because I’m in so many courses and everyone uses FB. I’m thinking about starting a FB group for my course, but what if only one person takes the course? No need for Facebook. LOL. So I will just make sure the person knows they have email access to me. I have to discuss this with my mentor. I don’t know what’s best if only 1 -3 people sign up for the course. I’m not doing a FB group for those few people.
FB groups are easier, but it’s also hard to get people engaged. But if people have questions, it’s perfect! It’s better (IMO) than emailing back and forth. And yes, I know there are now alternatives to Facebook. I haven’t checked them out yet. But I know people like the other platforms.
Oh! My new astrology class has 100 people in it. I kid you not. There were about 96 people live on Zoom!! ROFL. We have today off. Yay! He is on a working retreat with bad internet access, so no class. The FB group is very active. I just introduced myself and haven’t said anything else.
Speaking of astrology, there is this HUGE astrology conferences in one of my favorite places in the United States – Baltimore Inner Harbor. I want to go, but #1 the cost and #2 not sure I can get the time off from work. It’s just 2 days off, but everyone wants time off in the summer. The hotel even accepts pets!! I love Hyatt. But there’s no way I would leave my dog in a hotel room, while I’m at a conference, so my mom would have to come for sure. My dog can’t be left alone.
Anyway, that would be at least $800 or so with the hotel cost. I could go for one day and not even stay in a hotel. Hmmm. I love the Inner Harbor. I grew up going there and haven’t been there in years. I would love to go to an astrology conference. Most of them are on the west coast so I feel like I should really consider it. I was going to cancel my birthday vacation and just go to Baltimore for this conference. But I love the beach and nature more than sitting in a conference room with a bunch of people. 😉
I could also meet my new teacher if I go. Hmmmm. Thinking about it. However, he knows I’m on a sliding scale so it would be weird if I went to the whole conference (and financially irresponsible). He would be like, “She must have some money”. Uh, nope. Damn. Probably not going. I do plan on going to Seattle or Portland for one of their conferences within the next 5 years. I don’t want to think about the cost of the flight.

Mostly reading astrology books for class and for creating my course. Not much time for leisure reading.
Weekend Plans: Well, today is Sunday. I have about 3,000 words to write if I want to get certified for one of my astrology classes. I have been staring at one birth chart forever and I only have 70 words. LOL. I have to write two papers on my own chart. That is a little easier. But I want to start on the harder charts first, because if I can’t do those, then why should I waste time doing the easy stuff? I just want the certification.
I also recorded a module for my astrology class. I did the intro, but I’m having tech trouble. No sound. ARGH. Should be easy to fix with google.
I’ve been eating too much. I know I can’t fit into my high rise jeans right now, but I haven’t tried. It’s not about exercising for me. It’s more about food. But exercise is good too. I walk about 20-25 minutes a day. Ideally, I would walk 40 minutes a day. Before I moved, I would walk at least 45 minutes a day and it didn’t affect my weight, but it probably kept me healthy. Skinny doesn’t equal healthy. Anyhow, I’m a little concerned because the kids are out of school as of Friday. If there are a lot of kids around, there goes my walks.
Tonight I’m going to attempt to go to bed on time and work on my astrology paper. If I could get to 300 words, that would be great.
Thanks for reading. Have a great week! 🙂
