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.
