Moving Is No Fun

So I have spent the last 2 days packing up everything in my room (the sized of a good sized studio apartment) as well as packing out all the stuff stored in a spare bedroom up stairs, to allow my brother and his Fiance to move into my room this coming long weekend.  It has been one heck of a battle as I had a lot of stuff to move or which 90% of all my stuff is going to wind up going into storage, including all my nick nacks which includes all the things (not many) that I got after my grandparents (on dads side) passed away years ago.  The only thing of theirs that is going to be able to make it into my new room is a piece of artwork. Which is something that has gotten me down at the moment. It did force me to sort through my stuff and get read of things that I did not need, (or want enough to bother packing and putting in storage)

Long Time No See.

So I have been a bad blogger and fallen off the face of the earth for a while, in part just because of the holidays, but also because I just don't seem to manage my time well enough to allow myself to sit down and with myself, to just be and to collect my thoughts, let alone to sit down and write.   Which is something that I really want to start to work on, as I need to try and carve out time to do just that, instead of incessantly distracting myself from the time I get up until the time that I go to bed. I think that this is something that I want to try to focus on doing this year (I know that it is pretty late to be coming up with a New Years resolution, but when it comes to that thing who says you have to be on time)

Is this car too gay?

So im thinking of buying a new car, which happens to be totally impractical, a Mini roadster convertible. 2 door 2 seat, huge trunk especially for a convertible.  But i wounder if it is too gay, dose it look cool or like something that should be driven in a pride parade with those inside wraped in rainbow flages and feather boas.

The idiocy Of Male Entitlement

Recently I lost a friend on Facebook, not the most spectacular loss because when we did not agree it was always my fault and his boyfriend played the attempt to belittle me game, all over attempting to point out to him that one of his post was not only a blatant insult to the spuriousness of assault against women but also a blatant example of male entitlement.

A Great Vacation

So after the hiccups at the start of my vacation, that I covered in my previous post, it all turned out to be tremendous fun! I got to get out and see lots of neat places, and to get to meet and spend time with familiarly members that I never really get to see or spend time with because they are clear on the other side of the country.  It all combined to be one amazing vacation and it has left me feeling totally renewed and refreshed.

I made a video sharing some of the photos from my vacation that I post so that all of you can see some of the things that I got to see and do!

I hope that you all enjoyed this post.

The Joys of travel: Flight delays.

So I am on vacation, visiting my grandparents (and Mom's side of the family) for three weeks. In upstate New York.  Starting last Tuesday.  Well it did not start off that hot, on our way to Albany we had three flights, the first flight from my home town to Los Vagues left and arrived on time and went perfectly.   And we made it to the gate in Vagues for our departing flight with some time to spare.  

Unfortunately our flight from Vagues to Dulles Airport Washington DC was delayed by 25 minutes putting us behind the boarding time for are next flight to Albany.   So when we got off that flight we made a mad dash all the way across the airport getting held up for ten minutes by part of the transport from terminal to terminal.   So we got to our gate to find the plane had pulled back early. (The door/stairs had been closed early even though it was still sitting there loading luggage,  and they would not let us on! (Such freaking BS when they had been called and told about delayed connecting passengers)

Well it was the last flight out of the night, so we had to go to customers service the only nice people from that airline in that terminal. (The gate people did not care and even told us to not come back till morning)  so lucky they where able to get us the last 2 tickets on the first flight out (the last tickets for that day)

So now we where stuck in DC, hoping that the airline partnered with a good hotel, which they would only discount of of because it was a weather delay. (Again BS in my opinion) luckily we found a good one, The Westion which was only 10 minutes away.

Being almost midnight there was no place to eat was open, so we left for the hotel.  When we checked, we asked for a 4:00 AM waked call. We also found out their lounge was open for another 30 minutes, so we went right over to grab something to eat, since we had not eaten anything since breakfast that morning.  Making it midnight before we got to bed.

The next morning mom woke up at five o'clock causing us to make a mad dash to get ready and to make the hotel shuttle to the airport,  so that we could get through security and to our gate.  We got through security surprisingly fast.  We got almost all the way to our gate before we found a reader board to check on our flight. It was supposed to be gate like A1 but they changed it to gate D something all the way on the other side of the airport so we had to hoof it all the way there a very long trip. 

Nicely they did not change the gate once we where there.  The flight left on time, getting in about an hour latter.   We found our checked bags in the baggeg office.  Then we got our rental car that once we got where we where going noticed that it had obviously not been cleaned since the last person as it had mud inside it, food, some unknown stuff stained to the driver's seat, and stuff caked onto the shifter nob and surround. 

So needless to say it was a rough start our vacation.

Monday Book Review: It's Complicated, by L.A. Witt

Well this is a day late to be a Sunday book review, but when I was not busy doing things yesterday I was busy catching up on my missed sleep from the week before. So today I would like the review a book that I just finished several days ago, that book is It's Complicated by L.A. Witt, a part of the Tucker Springs series of books.

Brad and Jeff have a complicated on again off again relationship, that at the moment is off again in an attempt to make a fresh start of things.  Things are looking up this time around then out of the blue Jeff's ex wife announces that she is pregnant with no other then Jeff's child! On top of that she want to move her and the child out of Tucker Springs, to Denver.  Will Jeff fallow his ex wife and new child out of to Denver, and what dose that mean for Brad and Jeff's fragile relationship? Can their new start survive this turmoil or is this finally the end for them?

PDA, A Double Standard

So a shit storm of controversy has hit the nation, in the form of a simple kiss between Micheal Sam, and his boyfriend when Micheal was drafted to play for the Rams, making him the first openly gay NFL player, something that was not really expected to happen!  So it got a bunch of peoples undies in a bunch, with cries of what about the poor children that had to see that on TV! To those complaining that they don't care that he is gay but why did it have to be flaunted and shoved down their throats.

In The Bipolar Closet

As some of you may know yesterday March 30th was the very first International Bipolar Day, a day that is supposed to help raise awareness about Bipolar Disorder and to also help and eliminate the stigma that surrounds it. Well I found myself watching a steady stream of post celebrating that day and doing just what the day is intended to do, to put a face to bipolar disorder and do their little part to work at ending the stigma.  I found my self wanting to like those post to show support for them, but in the end (like everyday something good or interesting about it pops up in my news feed) I did not like the post, out of fear of my friends, and even extended family seeing not only that I liked the post but the page that the post where posted in. I know this may sound odd to all of you seeing as how I share that about my self on this blog, but in real live hardly anyone knows about it at all, least of all my friends and coworkers.

Trying It Without The Crutch Of Medication

I know it has been a while since my last post, I have been doing OK, in a bit of a rut but not bad. So once again I have really been struggling lately with taking my medications, (how ever I have been strictly adhering to them) and wanting to be off of them for a number of reasons. I have once again had somethings come across my desk so to speak that have again stocked my mistrust of medication and psychiatry at large
