Journal Entry #88: Nostalgia for the 90s or Anything

I recently downloaded Jezzball and DX Ball for my computer. I’m more than a little psyched. I’m also moving my photos and files from my iMac that is ancient to my laptop. Needless to say, since I formatted my external for Apple, I can’t use it to transfer my stuff. It’s been a long process. I’m feeling sort of the excitement of getting back into the swing of a having a routine of work, exercising, writing, and other things. I’ve been looking more at my future opportunities out there for me in terms of ascending the ladder. There’s not much more else to say except this is definitely not the year to feel stable or settled. It’s been the opposite for me. I’ve been doing too much web surfing and reading about famous people dying. I have to say hearing Helen McCrory dying was a gut punch. I loved her in Peaky Blinders and will miss her dearly as Aunt Polly. She was much too young. I suppose with everything going on I’ve been less concerned about being in my best shape (not that I ever was) and less motivated to be the go-getter I sometimes am. I recently asked someone do you think it’s harder to paint a good painting or write a good book. He said paint a good painting. I tend to agree with this one. You aren’t given too many chances for a redo unless it’s an oil painting because acrylic dries so soon and forget about making a mistake on water color. This will probably be the last week of not working and while I should’ve used it to plow through my final rewrite of my first novel or write as much as I can on my second novel, I have done neither. I’m semi-okay with this because 2021 is my regroup year. I end with a few quotes.

That’s why they call it the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.

-George Carlin-

We have so much time and so little to do. Strike that, reverse it.

-Roald dahl-

He knows nothing and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.
