Yesterday I kind of wanted to die. I was overwhelmed. Work sucks. Work sucks. Works sucks. I asked for this upcoming Friday off because I need a break. I wanted Monday off but I didn’t want to pressure my boss into approving it on short notice.
Anyway, I’m feeling much better now. I have decided to take a week off from my “business” or should I call it a “side hustle” as everyone else does. Not posting on Instagram will mess me up as far as the algorithm. But I don’t care. After a week, I will probably go back to it and maybe consider it a hobby. Not sure. I love tarot and astrology, so I’m okay with it being just a hobby as long as I’m not investing too much time or money. That’s the problem.
I MADE AN 85 on my final exam astrology paper!!!!!!!!!!111!!!! Woohoo! I was just trying to get a 70. They grade hard, so I didn’t know what to expect. I still don’t have my final grade for the class, but I think I passed. It doesn’t matter. I’m not getting a certificate or a degree there. So whatevs.
NEWSFLASH: I am doing monthly horoscopes for another site. They reached out to me. Someone thinks I’m okay. lol. However, I won’t get a link back to my site. It is good experience. I’ve never done horoscopes before. I’ve done 6 so far. It’s interesting. I’m still a beginner when it comes to astrology, so I’m pretty sure what I’m doing isn’t that great. I can’t imagine doing daily horoscopes. Haha. No way. I would have to be paid for that.
If I ever stop posting my horoscopes on their site, I’m going to post them on my Patreon or my website. Plus, when I pitch to people I get to say “I’m an astrologer for ——“. How cool is that? I also will eventually add it to the bio on my website. But I’m not updating my website right now because I don’t give a fuck.
I don’t know what else to say. Just waiting to hear about work. I really can’t talk about it since I think someone from work is reading this.
Oh, I made 3 mental health appointments for April. They are all online. YAY! I’m so glad my insurance covers that. I made two appointments with a therapist for April. Due to cost, I would only like to have therapy two times a month, and her schedule only allows that. She only works online on Fridays, so it is tough to get an appointment with her. That’s why I scheduled both even though we haven’t even talked yet. If we don’t match, I will cancel the second appointment.
I may have mentioned the psychiatrist appointment last week. My 3D doctor SUCKS, so I’m going to see what an online one says. I’m worried this will be a waste of time. What if he says, “See your doctor” or “there’s nothing I can do.” I just want to know how to get off Abilify. I know it is different for everyone. I’m on the lowest possible dose. In fact, I only take it 5 days a week. Of course, I’m supposed to take it daily. Ugh, I just can’t get off of this med. 😦 Before Abilify, I was a somewhat high functioning depressed person. I could work just fine, but everything else sucked. When I got home from work, all I would do is sleep.
So Abilify works, but it sucks if you are 1 out of the 3 people who will have compulsive behaviors. I’ve read stories of people gambling excessively while on the med etc. For the first few years, I had no side effects from Abilify. I guess I would recommend to only stay on it for a year and get off ASAP…even if it works. Don’t end up like me.
Election 2020: Marianne Williamson was on MSNBC for the first time today! She’ll be on Morning Joe on April 4th. Finally. Can’t wait to watch. However, she still doesn’t have enough people supporting her. At this point, she will not be on the debate stage in June. 😦 That will kill her chances. I keep mentioning Marianne, but I have never linked to her donation page. Please donate. I only donated $2.00. Any amount helps!
I really like Pete Buttigieg. He kind of had a WTF moment recently when he said coastal elites don’t understand Trump voters. Sigh. Whatever. I know a lot of people feel this way. Anyway, I would vote for Pete. 100%. He’s gay. Can we have an gay president? I think so BUT then there’s Joe Biden. I think it will come down to Joe, Kamala and Beto. In a month, that opinion will probably change. I think Joe will be the candidate. Too bad.
So far I’m down for voting for Buttigieg, Williamson (of course!), Warren and maybe Castro. I wonder will Stacey Abrams run? If she does, I’ll add her to my list of people I would vote for in the primary. We vote on Super Tuesday. I’m going to try to get that day off…if I want to vote. If it is between Booker, Biden, Sanders, and Kamala – I won’t give a shit. It’s funny Booker and Joe are probably the nicest people in DC, but who cares? I don’t like their policies. (Booker’s past policies are the problem, not the stuff he is saying now).
This week I…
Music of the week: Britney Spears, Jussie Smollett (LOL), Christina Aguilera, Jewel, Rachel Platten, Maggie Rogers, Rachael Sage, Sugarland
Yes, Smollett’s charges were dropped. That doesn’t mean much of anything. I just really wanted to listen to his debut again. So I used the charges being dropped as a reason to listen to his album again. I hope Jussie didn’t pay anyone off. I don’t think he did. I think it was just a DA letting him off the hook due to the inner workings of the “justice” system. It does bother me that IF he did it, he keeps lying, but he has always said that his mom raised him not to lie (prior to all this happening), so I figured he would never admit to lying about something like this!
His mom and all his siblings probably 100% believe him. How can he let his whole family down and the few supporters he has left? In this case, I think being honest would help him get his career slightly back on track (not with Empire – screw that). But if he keeps saying he was a victim of a hate crime…uh. I dunno. People don’t like lies like that. But lies by politicians and police officers are just fine. 😉
TV of the week: The Bachelor, March Madness
Will I ever finish watching The Bachelor? Stay tuned. I started watching it late and I only watch about 2 hours a week, so that’s why I’m so behind. I probably will post about this season once I’m done. Btw, this is my first time watching The Bachelor. So interesting.
Podcasts of the week: So You Wanna Be a Witch, Why is This Happening, Pod Save America, All In with Chris Hayes, The Jim Fortin Podcast, In the Dark (sooo good!), Pod Save America, The Astrology Podcacst,
Books of the week: Now reading –
Weekend Plans: I’m taking another astrology class from Astrology University (highly recommend them). I have a paper due tomorrow. I have to work on that tonight. I want to finish my horoscopes too. I was running around getting a new phone from Verizon today, so I didn’t get much done. The phone I could afford wasn’t at most of the Verizons near me. I love my new phone
with the Kate Spade case. I HAD to get a new one. It was hard to just make phone calls on my old phone. I had to start calling into work meetings 5 minutes early if I had to be there at the beginning.
I couldn’t use most apps. One thing I forgot – I forgot to take out my SD card. Not a huge deal. I just had music and Marianne Williamson talks on there. Oh well. This phone has so much space, so I have no plans to use a SD card.
I really have to go. UVA is playing right now. They are scaring me. They are only down by one. I hope they make it to the final four and win the whole thing. So I’m going to work on my paper and watch basketball until midnight.
Thanks for checking in! Have a great week. 🙂
