Thoughtful Thursday - 17 Ways to Suck as a Person

thoughtfulEveryone sucks some of the time. Sometimes you might be tired or hangry and mess up. Making mistakes is part of being human, but if you do these things with regularity, you should consider working on yourself. Think about whether your goal really is to be an asshole.

1. Proclaim that someone you don't know can't possibly need to be seated on an airplane before you because they aren't even limping.

2. Turn every article you see online into a discussion about some political thing that isn't part of the article. Since you love politics, everyone else should want to talk about it in every conversation, right?

3. Run around hating whatever group of people it's popular to hate in your country. Don't think about how your group might be the next target. Jews, white males, the Chinese, etc. Whatever gives you the best scapegoat.

4. Park across 4 spaces in a city that has a parking shortage. Your vehicle and convenience are more important than those other 3 people that could've used those other spaces.

5. Mention that the brown guy at work only has a job because of quotas. He couldn't possibly have any skills, right? Bonus if he's close enough to hear you.

6. If you don't like something, make anyone who does like it feel like garbage regularly about it because you can't understand how people could like things that you don't since the world obviously revolves around you.

7. Condemn others for doing things you have done. It's different in your case because you're special, right?

8. Whenever you can't deal with a discussion, begin name-calling instead of trying to actually discuss the issue. It's totally cool to treat "bad people", a.k.a. anyone who disagrees with you, like crap and degrade them, right?

9. Call any source presented to you "biased" because it's not from a source you would use, so there's gotta be something wrong with it somewhere even if the experiment design is flawless. The fact that you are biased when you do that won't matter. Facts don't matter anyway, it's who yells the loudest that does. The fact that you are guilty of confirmation bias doesn't matter either because you believe you're the one that's right.

10. Whine constantly about how your life is, but take no solid steps to do anything to change it. Seriously, no one minds reading a slew of posts every day about how your life sucks.

11. Punch anyone who disagrees with you about anything. Beat them down in the street, break into their home, and set fire to their children's beds because they must be evil if they think or believe something different as your view is the only right one for 7.5 billion humans. Obviously.

12. Be envious of peers who succeed instead of cheering them on. They're totally jealous every time something goes great for you. You can tell by the way they insincerely type "congrats" on your posts.

13. Care far too much about what consenting adults do in bed together. There totally aren't better things to do with your time, like have sex with your partner instead.

14. Steal money and ideas from others because actually working is too hard.

15. Abuse animals and other humans.

16. Act like you're better than everyone else because of your religion, race, sex, possessions, diet, etc.

17. Talk about how important a social issue is but never put time into raising funds to fix the problem. Instead, shame others who care about other social issues.

Guid cheerio the nou,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
