Earworm: "The Loneliest Time" by Carly Rae Jepsen feat. Rufus Wainwright

Monday, November 28, 2022

Unfortunately, Miss Jepsen's new album was released on the same day as Taylor Swift's Midnights. But somehow it was this song was the song released that day that I have continued to listen to. It's a fun disco jam, and it makes me want to wear my 70s best and dance around. 

And it feels like a great winter bop. That seasonal depression hits and it can feel like the loneliest time, and I know this song is about a relationship, but we can expand that meaning to the winter blues. Just groove through it. 

Goodbye(?) Twitter, You Wonderful Hellscape

Friday, November 18, 2022

Right now Twitter may be operating today, but with a lot of Twitter staff not staying on for the troll's Twitter 2.0, it seems like it might actually be dying out. And the vibe on the timeline last night was very much like "Bye Bye Life" from All That Jazz.

Just doing what Twitter does best: good and overused jokes about its demise, last words, and sincerity about the friends you made along the way. 

If you look at my feed, you wouldn't think I was that active on it. But I wasn't someone who like every tweet a friend would post or reply to celebrity or trending posts (unless I had come up with a good line or response to a prompt). But I would check it every day for news, both actual and pop culture, sports scores, and just try to find some fun stuff. So I'll miss it for that. Not in the ways it helped to worsen our society, hence the hellscape in the title. Thankfully my Twitter usage never ventured into that.

I Want a Studio Apartment

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

I have have roommates since 2014 when I started college, and I would like to live alone now please.

I want my own little space. And a kitchen to myself. And bathroom. Bathroom, especially. Not have to be cognizant of others, can be as neat or messy as I want or need, and relax. I can do my own things on my own time, and not have to wait for others to finish up whatever they were doing. 

A big part of it is that I've never really had a space of my own to decorate. It's always been tiny rooms with no spaces for shelving, fancy tables and chairs, and not great wall space for hanging things up. I've been browsing a few websites looking at home decor to get an idea of what my home style is. 

The main thing I'm looking forward to though, is my entertainment set up. In the apartments I've lived in, I've never had space for my record player or record collection. They never even made the move from home, and I've been missing them since. I could also get a DVD/Blu-ray player, because while streaming is great, as we're learning from HBO Max, just because it's there today doesn't mean you can watch it tomorrow. Which is why I wan my DVD's back and to add to the collection. And maybe be fancy and maybe get those Criterion Editions of classic movies. Just thinking about the lists of movies and music to buy is getting me excited about the potential of my own space. 

And a shelf for my books!

My Teeth are Fucked and I'm Finally Doing Something About It

Tuesday, November 8, 2022

My mouth is fucked. And the most fucked up thing is that my teeth didn't get fucked and start shifting until I was an adult. My canines started to become snaggled, pushing my two front teeth in, and then that is degrading my bottom row of teeth. So I got Invisalign. 

I never knew teeth could be sore. Those first couple days were awful. The first night my teeth hurt so much I couldn't even bite a muffin. And it was such a shame because it was a really good corn muffin and I love corn muffins. Thankfully that only lasted a couple days. And I hope when I put in the new tray each week it won't be that bad. 

As of now the only drawback is how annoying it is to snack. I love snacking. I even had to come up with a trick to curb the snacking. I don't think I need that trick anymore. The annoyance and inconvenience of having to take out the trays just to have a cookie doesn't feel worth it. Check back in once my teeth have shifted and it's easier to take them out, but as of now, my eating will be the best it's ever been.

Even though it sucks right now, and my brain is still having trouble processing how this is going to be my life for the next seven months, I can't wait for the end result. My teeth straight and not feeling like they're trying to make a run for it from my mouth. And also to only have a retainer to wear at night. That's great, too.

It's Been a Bit...

Thursday, November 3, 2022

 So it's been a bit since I've posted here. It wasn't like a planned absence, it just kind of happened. Work was slowing down, and then I had a week off, and then I was back at work and there wasn't much going on. And I was really enjoying that lull. Just let my body and brain relax because I knew it was only a matter of time before the early calls and long days would start again. I was the most well-rested since I started working in film and tv. Going to work at 7:30 for an eight of nine hour day was heaven. I cherish those days more and more with every ring of my alarm going off at 5 in the morning for a twelve hour day. I miss you.
