Currently just lamenting the fact that my ex is now my stepsister since my mom married her dad. People laugh about it but it’s not funny to me. I feel like I don’t have a home anymore. She also shows up to this spiritual group we both belong to and sends me texts and asked me to meet her new boyfriend. I’m just like WTF when do I get to heal from being cheated on? She seems to be meeting new people and going out all the time and I can’t get a single date. Wondering if it’s because I’m 51, or maybe my interests are too obscure, or maybe dating apps and the human race just suck.

I had my first jab of the Moderna vaccine today. It went very well. I haven’t had any side effects so far.

We are used to it. 

At least we didn’t do our brave unfortunate losers spiel.

I’m all about self improvement and all that jazz but the human race really does suck. Life is long periods of nothing with occasional excitement. I’ve learned to be detached about things so I’m not emotionally manipulated, and can reclaim my power. I give something my all, and have pride, but find myself caring less and less about other people. My happiness doesn’t depend on them, and they’re not thinking about me either. So screw it. I’ll just be me. It may not get many friends but it’ll get the right friends. This mindset is really exciting and liberating.

It’s hard when the one person you thought would be with you til the end just abandons you one day.

I’ve always related to this from ‘Calvin and Hobbes’.

It’s hard and I am not one in place to give advice or words of encouragement but there is a song called ‘Belonging’ by ‘Kendall Payne’. The words online are wrong and one never correct line is “we cannot time our wounds to heal on human clocks” and that is true. It takes time to get over hurts, disappointments, betrayal and all the other shit that life deals out and it cannot be rushed. So don’t. Take it a minute at a time and try not to beat yourself up as you get to where you are going.

Thanks guys. I know my ex is probably wrong for jumping into relationships but it’s easier to do if you’re an attractive woman and it doesn’t make me feel any better.

People deal with their lives differently, you cannot look to their ways to find solace in your own as otherwise you will never get to where you are going. Concentrate on yourself.

My annual leave is over, 19 glorious days of not seeing anyone or having to interact with people for any more than a minute or two when in a shop. I could live like that happily, give me a rough plan every day and I’m sorted.

I kept my mouth shut after England beat Germany 2-0 in normal time, the first time they have won a knockout game against the Germans since 1966, but now Ukraine 4-0. A supurb game, couple of sloppy moments in the first half, but as soon as we got the second goal near the beginning of the second half, we controlled the game. 7 succesive games with a clean sheet. The only team left in the competition not to concede a goal.

We have the advantage of the next games being at Wembley, crowds of 60,000 – who will largely be English because of the travel restrictions. Denmark next.

Just about finished Brave New World, which I believe John was a fan of. I can totally see why. It’s basically about the importance of feeling your own pain, being an individual and how society wants conformity. Damned good read.

I really need to finish that book and get into more Huxley, he seems like my kinda guy

I do think BNW was a bit more accurate of a prediction of what society would become than 1984 was
