My first ever jury summons!

yep, I got one. It took long enough, lol. Unfortunately transportation is a big issue because it’s random and unpredictable. It isn’t like we have rideshare here and I can just hop an Uber whenever I want. We do have public transport here, but the issue with that is I’m not sure if they come

Getting rid of the cat.

Well trying to get rid of him anyway. I’ve posted on a group for rehoming pets on FB, and put an ad on Craigslist. So far, no one has responded. I’m going to call the shelter on Monday, to see if they’ll send someone to come get him. Melissa won’t take him, (technically she doesn’t

Thoughts on online authenticity.

Today I was watching Senate committee hearings with Facebook, Twitter, and Google. They were testifying about russian ads/propaganda during and after the 2016 election. During the hearing, the point of transparency was emphasized. In other words, we need to know where an ad or story came from, (what country,) and who paid for the ad.

An incident with my cat.

I went to bed really early last night, like around 8 something. I ended up waking up around 1 for a bit then going back to sleep. What woke me up around 5:15 this morning, was the cat going absolutely crazy. I’d unfortunately forgot to close the bathroom door, (like I’ve started doing because he

Seven Quick Takes.

I’m taking the cat back.

Back in 2015, a couple months after I moved into this apartment, I adopted a cat named Tigger. It really didn’t work out because he needed attention every 5 minutes during the day, and he really wouldn’t sleep with me, (or settle down for that matter,) at night. So he kept me awake all night

My trip to the dentist.

Lol yeah, I actually broke the longest streak in my life and went to the dentist today. I hadn’t been since 2009. I need 4 extractions, 2 of which are my top wisdom teeth. I also need like 3 root canals. Lol yeah, I said 3. I’m hoping my insurance will authorize sedation so that

Got back Monday.

I was actually planning to stay an extra day, but the relatives I was going to stay with decided to change plans at the last minute. This was extremely annoying, because I had a room reserved and everything! They said they were going to take a longer route home so I’d have to pay for
