Hello, and a happy first Sunday of the year to you! I hope it’s started out as a good one, and if it hasn’t, well, that doesn’t mean it’s not on the way up from here on out; I’m aware that sounds like one of those be positive! Love your new year! kind of statements and trust me, I’m currently about as far from that as it’s possible to get, however, who doesn’t want to wish for a little happiness for both themselves and other people, hmm?
So we’re one week in to this new year, and we’ve already had Youtubers being disgraceful, world leaders being children (sorry, children, that’s insulting), politicians being dismissive of the impact of their words and principles on ordinary people, and storms that have caused havoc in numerous places. The following 51 weeks of this year really don’t have to try harder to be better! Glass half full and all that…
I’m determined to say something positive, I am! Let me think… well. This week I’ve got a lot of writing done, some editing for the next book I intend on publishing, and I’ve scheduled some poems from my Other Blog™️ to post on here once a week so you can see another side to my writing. I have… played with more Google Chrome Extensions than I care to admit and subsequently deleted the majority of them, and forgot more passwords than I realised I had accounts for. Oh, and probably most important of all these week was the return of X Files; that’s the first time I’ve cried for hearing the X Files theme, and I loved the episode, but That Thing with CSM and Scully, if that turns out to be true? I will vomit. And swear. More than I already have done.
Since my life is relatively uninteresting besides writing and obsession with a couple of TV shows, I shall end this with some links to my usual kindness in the news kind of thing; it always makes me feel a little less apocalyptic (and a lot more teary-eyed) for hearing stories like these. How deprived are we for good news?!
