4 x This Week: Sickness Strikes (or the Blood Moon?), Puppet-Jackie, and Email Paranoia

Concrete Ceiling and Fan
I’ve become well-acquainted with this ceiling fan. It spins right above where I sleep, as well as where I stare when I’m contemplating the complexities of my existence.
I’m kidding. Sort of.

Ahahaha, you may have thought you were rid of me, seeing as I didn’t post last week. But I am back, and just as scintillating as ever.

(And by scintillating, I mean gray. As gray as the ceiling in my sister’s apartment. But you know, same.)


I’ve been sick (hence the no-show last Monday). For one day it was something flu-like, then it was something heat exhaustion-like, and then a headache that might be related to that time of the month when the blood moon is out, if you get what I mean wink-wink-nudge-nudge.

Plus, we’re out of bottled water.



Last week I was gonna post this, but then I got sick, but I guess I’ll post it anyway.

There’s a person staying over with my sister and I who I don’t get along with, and I don’t know what I was expecting but we still don’t get along. Actually, she may have gotten worse. Problem, though, this person is family and technically holds power over me since she’s older, familial piety, etc. etc. Do I hate it? Yeah. Because I don’t let anyone else talk to me the way she does. But for some reason I have to give her an exception. Only family can get away with it, I guess, because I’m stuck with them and I am dependent until I get out of college.

So I guess it’s time for puppet-Jackie to come back out and pretend to be a good little doll, or cut the strings and get trampled.

A bit dramatic, now that I look back. Problem has been resolved (ish), though there’s like a 99% chance that if we meet up again, we’ll still argue.

Sigh. I wish we could all get along. Truly I do.


Sometimes I wonder if my email is glitchy and I’m secretly not getting important emails.


A thought on these 4x posts: should I split up the 4x? Like, maybe split this up so that each part occurs on a different day of the week? The posts would be shorter, but they’d be way more frequent, perhaps more than would make most people comfortable.

(And by “most” I mean the small percentage of people who actually read this. If anyone reads this. If you are reading this, well then, I raise my teacup to you, sir.)
