My brain is mush these days.
This weekend I tried to reset my funk a bit by spending some time at home. It’s been go go go for the last few weeks and I feel scattered.
We cleaned the house, planted flowers in the front lawn (New Year’s resolution - check!), grabbed donuts and had a picnic with friends and just hung out outside. All good things. I’m hoping by seeing a clean house and spending more time outside I’ll get out of my funk.
These days, everyone is moving to California and I just want to jump in their bags and leave everything behind. But I know. Patience, Muriel. Patience.
Aside from that, lately I’ve been brushing up on my HTML/CSS skills, finishing up a Treehouse Wordpress module and taking a Photoshop class in two weeks. I’m hoping to get into video editing (at least beginner) and UX soon. We’ll see.
Looking into some new projects for CommonCreativ too. And apparently I’m doing a reading in May?

ICE COLD, BB, ICE COLD
50 years ago, America’s biggest employer was General Motors, where workers made the modern equivalent of $50 dollars an hour. Today, America’s biggest employer is Walmart, where the average wage is eight dollars an hour.
… And Walmart released their annual report this month, and in it was the fact that most of what Walmart sells is food. And most of their customers need food stamps to pay for it. Meanwhile, Walmart’s owners are so absurdly rich that one of them, Alice Walton, spent over a billion dollars building an art museum in Bentonville, Arkansas… And she said about it, “For years I’ve been thinking about what we can do as a family that can really make a difference.” How about giving your employees a raise, you deluded nitwit?”

“People are going to judge you all the time.”
They absolutely will. You’re a terrible mother! Why are you doing whatever you’re doing? Why AREN’T you doing this thing you’re NOT doing? People will judge you so harshly for every child-related decision, they won’t even notice that you have the Chinese character for “Serenity” inked on your forearm.
