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…

End of June already. It is crazy how time flies. This summer did turn out to be a scorcher. Today it is 115F. Yesterday it was 113F. According to the news, we are the hottest city than 99.8 % of Earth. Our temperature is only beaten by the African Sahara desert, Persian Gulf, and some deserts in California. A friend…

It is supposed to be 113F this Sunday. In a city encased in concrete in reality it will be even hotter. I don’t know what to do. I don’t have an air-conditioner and I have to walk my dog at least two times because I don’t have a backyard. I am not overly worried about morning walk as temperatures will…

My computer is covered in wine stains and dog hair. I don’t know how it is still alive. Someone on Facebook said that what matters is how the computer feels inside. I don’t know how it feels inside. It does not talk to me. And if it would it would probably say that it is resentful. Just came back from…

Vacation continues. It is only a week-long but I will take that (see my previous post for the reasons). So far I have checked my work email every day but only to clean up spam and see what it will be once I return to work on Tuesday. It would be a busy day, for sure. But I like busy.…

Just started my mini-vacation. Just a week which is for the summer means mini. I still have 3.5 weeks to burn after that but because I am working around my co-workers’ schedule (no surprise there and I never receive a thank you for that) and the hiring committee I am on it would be difficult to take any time off…

It’s Friday and even though I made a post yesterday I have an inclination to write again even though this day is no different than others. It is true, I have been living in a Groundhog Day for the past year with hardly any social contact except meeting with my friends once a month on average or on my walks.…

Beginning of June already… Where does the time go? It seems just yesterday I was planning projects for the Summer and now that Summer is officially here I find myself procrastinating and re-planning my life for a later date. Some of it is laziness and some of it is a fear of failing. Planning is very akin to New Year’s…

Writing because I am procrastinating doing my strength exercises. They are tough but only take half an hour. The benefits are tremendous. I have a bad back and if I don’t do strength training it starts hurting. Besides, I gained a lot of weight so that adds to the situation. Can you imagine me with a double-chin? I can’t. That’s…

It’s Wednesday. The hump day. I am starting to write more often which is good. I am not sure though if the quality of writing is suffering. In the morning we went to a “hunting” field where I let Opee free and allow him to hunt the mice to his heart’s content. He catches them and eats them. I figure…

I miss hiking! It has been a long time since COVID hit the world and going on the hikes became difficult as on weekends everyone and their mother was on trails. It simply became so crowded that all enjoyment went out of it. Besides, not everyone was wearing a mask. Now that I am fully vaccinated I can start hitting…
