Beautiful Distractions No. 9

Ooooph. Was this week as weird for you as it was for me? Tuesday was an exceptionally difficult day that began with puking, no internet, and heaps of drama. It was so bad I thought for sure Mercury was in retrograde…ummmm, it wasn’t…I checked…it just happened to be a shit sandwich day that required a helmet.

Why Are You So Busy — A Personal Check In

Oooooph! I’ve been meaning to write this post now for about 3 months…an update to my unemployment slash starting a new business slash freelancing slash blogging slash slinging vintage, but finding the time to even sit an write as been trying. One of my bloggery friends said I know you’re busy when you stop posting…ain’t that the truth. Gah, I hope this doesn’t mean I’m failing at blogging. If I haven’t said this before, thank you for bearing with me while I transition through this part of life. Srsly, who knew being unemployed could be so time consuming.

My Life In The World Of Unemployment – An Update

If you’ve ever lost your job, then you know it’s a flat out traumatic experience. This was my third… no fourth time in the world of layoffs. And no, it’s not because I am a sh*tty employee. I’ll have you know, I rarely called in sick, if ever, and I never, ever missed a deadline. So why all the layoffs? Oh how I wish I knew. Maybe it’s the state of the economy, or the world of advertising, maybe I just made poor decisions in employers. Either way, it’s been a few months since I’ve written anything regarding the emotional state of my career, so here goes.

Do You Drive Your Partner Bonkers?

I’ve now been unemployed for six months. Six months of not commuting into the city. Six months of being in the the house with The Boy.

Brrrrrrrrr, It’s Cold!

Polar vortex. Bomb cyclone. Snow in Florida. Here in Chicago, we have had a “feels like” temperature of -15° since Christmas. I don’t know about you, but I’m staying inside…under a few blankies…until this nonsense goes away. For entertainment, we’ve gone bowling, played Eucher, Yahzee, and Tri-Onomos and watched a lot of TV.

What to watch on Netflix

Until The Frame arrived, Netflix, Hulu, Firesticks, Chromecasting, Amazon Prime Videos…it was all foreign tech to me. None of that fanciness worked on our old TV. Most of the time it was old reruns of Alf while scrolling through Instagram. But now, post Frame arrival, I’ve gotten up close and personal with binged watching full seasons and now understand why Netflix cheating can cause minor issues. Here’s what The Boy and I have been watching and what’s next on our list during the big chill.
