new job and a bit of a job on a side darkness outside why is the winter early this year? needed to switch off hide behind a screen playing stupid games wasting time doing nothing
every bullet every shell every cartridge everything you fire my way, I collect. I dig them up from my flesh. I stitch my wounds. They are now my ammunition. one more spark and it explodes. You are surprised when it does. Suffragettes Feminists Women movements #MeToo I am proud to show my scars. Is this war? yes. But I can't stop fighting. You are the one still shooting.
Picking up one thing to un-invent is a surprisingly difficult act. Sure, there are stupid inventions and invention that have negative side effects. But is there something in existence that is truly evil? We are living in an age where everything has a good and a bad side, sometimes to the extreme. Global warming anyone? But do I want to un-invent the industrial revolution? Heck no. 'The road to hell is paved with good intentions.' The Bible got something right. It perfectly describes the state of this world. I would un-invent torturing devices of the medieval times.
It is hard to think of undoing anything other than covid-19 at the moment, but I tried. Also, I’m quoting the Bible.

what would you un-invent if you could? why, potential repercussions, and alternatives.
I guess the total craze of today's world finally caught up with me this week. I went on a bit of anger fuelled political rampage that is still burning strongly in my heart. I was feeling very vulnerable by the subtle abuse of human rights in the name of fighting Covid-19 in Slovakia, by the madness that is happening in Poland and Belarus, the total disregard of women's and LGBT+ rights and absolute laugh in the face of democracy. Not a good week... but there is always something worth smiling for. This is the silliest thing I am a part of. Yet, we are probably making a Guinness world record. As many of us, thanks to the pandemic, I have started spending a lot more time on internet and got quite hooked on YouTube. I find it hard to watch normal TV or Netflix most of the time as I struggle to find something that I would like to watch that wouldn't be too long. I have discovered lot of creators on YouTube during this past few months that I really enjoy watching, and I also became part of the communities around those creators. The most significant, or the community I am most involved in, is around one Joel Berghult who runs a music-centred channel RoomieOfficial. It all started on 1st September with Joel's tweet "Wheptember", followed by a "Whep", then "Whep 2", and "Whep 3"...we are on Whep 21,999 as of the moment of writing this post, waiting for Joel to do the thousand. We have created a Twitter chain with 22K whep messages. Yes, we are insane. We, a group of 50 odd people across all time zones and continents, have also created the most wholesome place on internet. It's a pick me up place where there's always someone to give you a virtual hug or wish you the best day. I don't care if it's silly. I love it.
everything is just easier with wine. no, I don't mean a glass of wine. I mean a bottle. At least I'm not lying to myself.
What? Ok, when I did a search of right-handed (a noun, as in right-handed person) in Google images, I did not expect to end up with a picture of fungi. Mind you, the book I grabbed was a dictionary so the word ‘right-handed’ wasn’t in English but in Slovak (pravák). The search however identified a Czech meaning of the word which is apparently a very common fungi Boletus reticulatus, mostly known as summer cep. This was educational. I mean as educational Wikipedia and Google can get. I don’t even remember how we looked for information before internet.

grab nearest book. open it randomly and go to the tenth word on the page. do a google image search of the word. write about what the image brings to mind.
it is your choice to go but if you don't go you can't leave your home and if you leave your home you will get fined. are you still not going? that is fine you will just lose your job 'cause you can't leave your home. you probably should go but it's up to you after all it is your choice.
Calling something voluntary and then issuing threats, sanctions and penalties when one doesn’t comply is not voluntary.
So much uncensored joy and love. Never ashamed, never embarrassed, never ending. I yearn to learn how to express it. I studied I observed I now understand I now comprehend I can see the outcome I can picture the emotion. Yet, when I try to recreate it all I have are puzzle pieces I'm not able to fit together. I don't even know where to start. Duh, I know you start at the corners and edges. But corners and edges is all I've got.
I woke up to another morning to water hammering on the windowsill and wanted to cry. It seems that five days of rain in a row is my limit. I had to go to the office that day. And I couldn't bear walking out of the doors. I craved sunshine. My sister casually mentioned that our dog has a toy sun...I wasn't the only one smiling in the office that day.
I know it is absurd. However I also refuse to believe that I am the only weirdo out there stealing their dogs' toys and bringing them to work.
Pushing things in front of me, ‘I will deal with it later.’ Tomorrow is a better day to begin this or that… I know I should do it now. I KNOW! Yet, I postpone it anyway. It is an informed and deliberate result of my thinking mind. Do I have a reasonable reason for the delays to my writing timetable? Nope. I just didn’t feel like it. That’s all it is. Motivation is low. To do anything. Stupid shutdown. You are allowed to go to nature. But walk your dog only up to 100 meters from your home. Stupid government.
Try to write a post about ‘conscious decisions’ and ‘procrastination’ without using the letter ‘C’. Well done me.
