It’s Friday night, and the outside is loud with cars. It’s about 9 pm. But it is quiet in my apartment except for the snoring of my little piglet who is not a real piglet, he is a dog, but I like to call him Piglet. A friend of mine once posted on Facebook of all places about the death…

Monday is here and it is a Monday after my week-long time off. It was wonderful not to work for a week. Tomorrow I am buying a lottery ticket. Even though I started working again it is not busy. Granted I have plenty of projects besides tech and pedagogical support of the faculty but feeling way unmotivated especially that I…

I woke up today with anxiety about yet another same day. Sometimes I feel like I am stuck forever in Groundhog Day. This feeling has been persistent for some time. I took a week off work. It should be great, right? But for the first time in my life, I wish I was at work to break out the monotony…

Snow day! Yey! It is so rare to have one here in Oregon. I am happy, the dog is happy. Happiness all around. Children are frolicking on the streets either being pulled on the sleds by their parents or sledding themselves from hills around the neighborhood. Many people are walking, including the beastie and me. Not whole a lot happened…

Well, Biden is here. I have never thought that I will experience immediate relief once Trump was out of office but I did. It seemed that I could breathe a little easier like the weight have been lifted. I am not particularly fond of Biden especially after listening to this podcast: https://theintercept.com/2020/01/30/does-joe-biden-have-a-corruption-problem/. But I’ll take it! In my opinion, all…

Rainy-rainy Portland. Not much to do about wetness. We have been scheduling social events with my friends around the rain schedule. Works. Except it gets cold after 5 pm so we are all like cabbages with many many layers of clothing to keep us warm. Worth it though as I am starved for an adult human interaction after spending all…

What I hate: 1. Owning money 2. People who do not use turn signals 3. People who go under the speed limit 4. People who walk looking at their cell phone 5. People who walk with music on without headphones 6. Pumpkin pie 7. Goat meat and cheese 8. Stupidity 9. Aggression in any form or shape 10. Racism 11.…

There are only 3 days of 2020 left. Good riddance I say. However, despite being a horrific year for everyone I actually personally did not experience much hardship except for the fear of getting COVID. I am immunocompromised so that would be a piece of very bad news indeed. In many respects, COVID was made for me. I am a…

Wanted to post something because it is 20/20. My dog nowadays won’t go outside until I give him a full body massage. I don’t know where it came from. Maybe he had a conversation with one of the dogs he played with on a grassy field and here it is. I am being held hostage because it is not like…

It is Mid-December. The holiday break is coming up next Monday and I am looking forward to two weeks of not checking my email. The computer will be shut and not accessed except for checking on Etsy and to write on this blog. It has been a tough semester full of working on weekends a substantial amount of time. Additionally,…

My sister got COVID. She is on the mend now. It is unbelievable because you never think it can happen to you or your family. Yet here it is, happening. She probably got it from her co-workers. No one wears masks there in the rural forgotten and forsaken little town in Belorussia located downstream from Chernobyl.  All of them probably…
