Another one of those mornings where I think “I should write something” so I get my laptop, sit on the couch and then stare at a blank screen with a blank mind rejecting ideas that pop in to my head. So, here are a few of my rejected ideas and why I rejected them.
The “War on Christmas” – I’ve written about how I feel about the fight over Happy Holidays vs Merry Christmas before. My thoughts haven’t changed. Wish me a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, whatever. I won’t be offended and my ability to celebrate the holiday of my choice will not be affected at all. I think it’s time we all grow up and stop fighting about stupid stuff.
The Electoral College – Yes, it would be nice not to have a President Trump but I was not expecting any other outcome. Yes, I will peak up over the next four years against policy and action that I feel is wrong, but right now I just want to focus on trying to get in to the Christmas spirit.As usual I am having trouble in that area.
Changes – I’ve bored everyone enough with how I’m struggling with the changes in my life. Nothing has changed to warrant a new blog post. I’m still adjusting to the new job. Next week will be hard being back home with my mom not there. I have been able to start focusing on reading again have a shot at reaching my goal of 100 books this year.
2016 – It’s still a little early for any sort of year in review post. I will do my year in reading post around January 1. I might do just a general year in review post around the same time. If I do it now I might miss posting about something exciting.
Current events in general – Too depressing at the moment. I need to start searching for funny news stories to share. The regular news is not fun.
I’m way too boring to do any sort of regular post about my days in general. A more talented writer could probably do something with that, but not me.
So, there you have it. My thought process while trying to decide what to write.
