I think life is starting to go in the wrong direction and needs a quick jolt for realignment before the wheels come off.

Just watched a gathering of people at Strawberry Fields Memorial in NYC singing John’s songs for his 82nd Birthday on YouTube. Playing his music is the biggest tribute to give him I think. It’s what will always shine on for eternity, and that thought really was confirmed with their performance, which was very good indeed. Watch the clips if you can find them.

Hey hi hello everyone I’m still alive (as you know if you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel) (and if you’re not, why aren’t you? ahdn_john_08_gifa-hard-days-night-george-10)

I work part-time-but-kind-of-a-lot-of-time (five days a week, four- to six-hour shifts at a time usually) at the custom framing department at Michael’s Arts and Crafts, which I really enjoy, and I’m only a few months away from being a college graduate, which will be a huge relief because I’m so done with school lol. At the end of this semester, I’ll be getting an Associate’s in Arts, which is dumb but I’ll have a lil piece of paper that says I’m smort or something, and then I can move on to doing important things like…. I don’t really know but I do enjoy my current position so I may increase my hours there, we’ll see. I’ll also have free time to pursue my hobbies more aggressively, which is quite important to me. ahdn_john_08_gifahdn_george_06billy-preston_01_gif

I listen to a lot of Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac nowadays too, in addition to the ever-present circulation of Muse/Bowie/Floyd/Zepp. George Harrison ‘s music is always in rotation as well – to be quite honest, I think I listen to his solo stuff a little more often, nowadays, than I listen to the Beatles. Every now and then of course I go back to the good old Fab Four, of course, and one of my coworkers is also a fan of Beatles and Zeppelin, so our conversations keep them fresh in my mind.

Anyway yeah suffice it to say I’m really busy and my brain has no room to spare like David Bowie’s warehouse, so that’s why I haven’t been around much here. Just thought I’d drop a little life update as well as some photos of George chilling in Hawaii (I sure would like to do that… a-hard-days-night-paul-7) and also my condolences to @Ahhh Girl, I know you and Ohhh Boy were close to your MIL. a-hard-days-night-paul-10heart

I have very much been sporadically posting here because nothing really interesting has happened in my world or the Beatley one that I care to post on. I have been working full time since August 2021 in an IT-related field (thankfully not working for Twitter…) and I started a new graduate diploma in September so I have further qualifications for the job I’m in. I’m enjoying it but I don’t know if I can do it for the rest of my life, work wants me to do a part-time master’s next year so if I do it’d be another 3 years (this year included) in college on top of the 5 I’ve already done (and I’m not even getting a PhD out of it – smh).

 

Apart from that literally nothing has changed from college, very much stuck in a boring rut in my personal life but I definitely don’t put myself out enough to actually have any kind of social life that involves actual people – whoopsie, but the Irish social scene is very much pub related and the older I get the more alcohol averse I become which I think is quite impressive. All of our work socials involve going to the pub and while I like the people I work with, I don’t like them enough to have to go to some shit pub and watch them all eat non-vegetarian finger food, so I politely decline those invites, but I don’t know how long I’ll be able to do that before I have to explain myself, I’ve already been told in my review that I’m shy (I definitely am not) and should speak up more, but when I’m the joint most junior person and the only woman on an 11-man team, I often cannot get a word in edgeways even if I tried. 

 

I’ve been slowly going back to travelling, I went to Rome for the first time with my parents in October which was really nice and we’re going to Krakow in December, where I’ve already been, but my mam would like to see everything around there, and the older I get, and the older they get, I want to spend more time with them.  I’m holding out on Paul to release European 2023 dates before I decide where I want to go next, come on McCartney!

 

Apart from that @Starr Shine?, @Little Piggy Dragonguy and I went to Liverpool in June. Saw a ton of Beatley places, was very good.

Resting for three days as finally have a break from work but got a cold, which I think is from working far too much.

Not really having much interest in TV, outside of some live sport and the odd programme, I found on my travels a YouTube channel of game walkthrough’s which is really cool to watch – theradBrad. Currently watching the ‘Game Of War: Ragnarok‘ series and, whilst not being the a gamer, it looks fantastic.

Ahhh Mom found out Wednesday afternoon that she has to get her pacemaker battery replaced Tuesday. I took off work yesterday and made a beeline to her house. We leave on November 26th for Disney World. I will drive home Thanksgiving Day so I can rest and pack Friday and get up Saturday for a 6 am flight. Craziness. Someone out there doesn’t want me to ever get bored or rested.

10 years ago, Ahhh Mom had her gall bladder removed on a Tuesday and got on a plane Saturday for a 3 week trip to Europe.

Whew>! a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-10ahdn_paul_01a-hard-days-night-paul-3That makes me tired just reading it. Hang in there!

Around the Bug household, we plan to make a more leisurely way to visit family for Thanksgiving. I am very, very much looking forward to it – my favorite holiday, just a quiet, low-stakes holiday centered around family and food (I’m dreaming of stuffing and pies of every description a-hard-days-night-paul-7). And much of our family lives out in the countryside of the Georgia piedmont, so it’s always very restful to drive out there and get away from the bustle of normal life and the more urban areas. apple01

I’m also hoping it’s a little less distressing than Thanksgiving last year, since that day was marred by the family matriarch, my great-grandmother, being ill and having to go to hospital and then passing away a couple days later a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-10ahdn_paul_01 it’s gonna be different without her, for sure. heart

I have six days away from work and don’t have a cold. Plan to meet up with nobody until Sunday, be in contact with very few people, enjoy the quiet, get fresh air, watch the football and see the days thru with as little hassle and worry as possible.

Well that lasted long. My throat is damn painful and have resorted to doing little whilst swirling some pain-numbing mouthwash, shoving numerous pills down my throat and coughing up entire portions of my lungs. 

Thank goodness the World Cup is on and the ‘Get Back ‘ documentary exists.
