How I've Spent My Time Recently

Outside of work, I've been drooling over all the smaller guitars that are available now. Years ago, there weren't a lot of options. There was mostly the guitar I have, which is a Squier Mini in red. Now there are Ibanez, Epiphone, Gretsch, Martin, Yamaha, Jackson, Pyle, and so many more guitars. I'm finding it hard to convince myself not to buy them all. Especially since the price point on smaller guitars is much lower than most.

I'm just starting power chords now. I'm now learning new stuff and feeling challenged in this course, which is good because I'm only on Level 2. The one thing that has been bothering me about my guitar is that the pick-guard is a different white than the rest, so I took on a fun little project to change it: 


When I'm not playing it or drooling over guitars and gear like pedals, I'm working on my renos, playing games (Minecraft and Cyberpunk 2077), or watching a stream of something. Occasionally, I'm getting some writing in. I will do more once some of my house projects are out of the way. When my home environment is a mess, it's hard to do things that involve a lot of mental focus. I have made progress on my living room and will be done that this week. I feel a little less stressed already.

I've also been fighting fatigue owing to low vitamin D and a low white blood cell count. My inflammation levels are high again. I'm currently waiting to see a new specialist, which is booked for mid-April. I've been trying to rest more and up my vitamin D.

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

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 Pride Journey - Part II

Image by Gordon Johnson "Wait, so you really got to age 39 before figuring out you were gay? Are you stupid?" Yeah, so I know a number of my friends and/or readers have probably been wondering about some things. Or maybe I just think so because I would be curious as to how someone can not know they're gay after doing a lot of sampling over the decades. At one point, I just thought most men were terrible at sex. Or mediocre at the very least. OK, I'm going to cross into too much information territory now. Penetration has almost always been unpleasant for me. I've thought so many things over the years on that beyond men being awful lovers. I thought it could be because I'm petite. Or maybe because I have Sjogren's Syndrome. One partner even had me convinced I had vaginismus for a time. Or maybe it was that I had trust issues and that's why I often couldn't "arrive"? But it was often the case for me that sex would be fine once or twice and s
