Status: good. better than good. noticed while at the gym yesterday that I wasn’t feeling miserable and dragging my feet as usual. Also noticed that my sinuses have cleared up and that I can actually breathe, I’m not as stuffy as usual. I may extend my non-drinking experiment into February because I’m quite liking this.
I have a date this afternoon. She seems nice, looks normal. Seems normal from our limited correspondence. Based upon past experience, this isn’t a sign of something that will last. I gravitate towards these ‘Lost Girl’ types who have a bit of an edge – usually identified through tattoos and scars on their arms from cutting. Always found it difficult to relate to “normals”, and they to me. They just don’t hold my attention at all. However, I’m going to make a concerted effort and be patient, let things develop over time and let’s see where this goes. I’ll reserve judgment based upon if there is a connection until after I get to know her a little bit better.
This situation with the school students and the Native American gentleman/activist in front of the Lincoln Memorial. I don’t know exactly what happened, and I don’t care that much. What I do care about are the negative reactions to the truncated video clip which seem to be based solely on the skin colour of the school students in contrast to the Native American. Guilt was assigned purely based upon the skin colour of the participants, which has been further amplified by individuals who have chosen to also focus on their gender and alleged membership in a nebulous organisation. My question is this: we have anti-discrimination laws on the books, yet they don’t seem to be applicable to news outlets and social media platforms, why is this?
