Some Things That Are Good
Yesterday (or maybe it was a couple days ago. Truly who knows), after this long writing hiatus that I clearly just went on, I had about 17 things I wanted to write about. Today, as I sit here typing, I have no idea what any of them were. Well, I remember one, but I cannot for the life of me remember why I wanted to talk about it. Note to self: actually write things down when you think, “I should write that down!” And be thorough while you’re at it.
Here’s what I am thinking about: 2019 is hard.
Just that phrase, over and over. I’m not sure what to say about it, or feel about it, but it just is. Life - in every facet - feels like an eternal whiplash between pain and joy, solidarity and bifurcation, feeling like I’m doing just the right thing and feeling like I’m doing just the wrong thing. Work is hard. The news is hard. Relationships are hard. My body hurts. My head hurts. I’m tired.
So instead of doing what I wholly intended to do when I opened this computer and rant about some grave injustice or personal flaw, let us not wallow.
Here is a list of things that are Good.
My sister’s three kiddos.
The mind of Nicole Cliffe.
This perfect rom-com.
Tik Tok filling Vine’s weird void.
Mindy Kaling’s Four Weddings and a Funeral miniseries which is just amount of emotional investment I can have in television rn.
Porno Day is back. SORRY NOT SORRY.
