Saturday Stuff

So, yeah. I really went off the blogging train this week!

It was a rough week and I’m sure writing would have helped but I had nothing productive to add. Too much uncontrollable stuff. I have faith that those things will work themselves out as they do.

I did have some thing really good happen though. I was able to go back to the gym this week! It felt great to get back in there. I did have to stop myself before I over did it. But no foot pain and I felt energized. I’m glad to know I can get back to that as another way of venting out my frustrations! I’ll set workout goals another time though!

Speaking of frustrations. Today’s topic for the 365 Writing Posts is a good one. January 14. Ripped from the headlines Head to your favorite online news source. Pick an article with a headline that grabs you. Now, write a short story based on the article.

Any news site I go to these days just really infuriates me. But I’ll just lightly go through some of the news items I recall from the week and talk a little bit about it.

Donald Trump’s press conference this week? As someone who studied journalism and has been a journalist, that “press conference” was the worst thing I have ever seen.

I know Trump is an egomaniac narcissist, but seriously. If you want to be successful, you can’t go after the press like that. CNN is a respected news source and Trump compared them to trash. And for what? Reporting the news? The news that there is a dossier that has some, as CNN pointed out, unsubstantiated claims that you are one fucked up individual and Russia is basically blackmailing you. Considering the hacking scandal, I think it’s pretty important. There will be an investigation of this so Trump can’t ignore this. Although. He will probably tweet about it in the middle of the night…

Speaking of that…

Someone please take that man’s twitter away from him. That’s ridiculous that the president elect is tweeting the bull shit he tweets. Barack Obama had his Blackberry taken away from him. Someone take Trump’s Twitter. He’s going to get in more trouble. Wouldn’t you hate to get nuked because the president went off about North Korea at 3:30 AM on Twitter? Come on.

… I did like that President Obama presented Vice President Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom. That was awesome. I will miss those two. … Seriously.

Le Sigh! Here’s a puppy!

Have a great Saturday!
