Isn’t it weird that a new week begins at the exact end of a month? Maybe we should invent a new date-system, it is kind of outdated after all, don’t you agree? There is actually no such thing as weeks or name of the days. There are only days, months and years, scientifically speaking.
Went out and ordered 28 mattresses, yup, crazy as it might sound, that’s how many I will be needing, 60×120 cm each. I won’t be using the ones I bought last week, the “old stuff” smell is still there so I’m going to throw them away instead. These new ones are clean and perfect. They had 11 of them in stock, but I only grabbed 8 and the rest will arrive somewhere in the middle of next week. So that’s one problem DEFINITELY on its way to get fixed.
Did some research for how to best fasten them on the wall and found a glue that is supposed to replace nails and screws, but I’m afraid it will leave a mark on the wall, so I sent the company that produces them an email, hoping for a response by tomorrow so I can go out and buy the glue from a local dealer and start working on the sound proofing!
I also went out to a local bookstore, they basically had no titles in English, everything was translated to Swedish… that sucks, I prefer to read books in their original language and also to buy locally to support local companies and the community as a whole, but I guess for books I will be buying from Amazon.com!
I watched one The Big Bang Theory episode and then began watching Sherlock, the very first episode… I can’t believe they are two hours long, that’s insane. Anyways, I don’t feel like binge watching anything though, I save that for days when my brain is fried or when I have severe headaches. Every second counts in life! Managed to write a few comic scripts before falling asleep.
Look, a new month, holy crap, time moves fast. I had planned to release at least one novel this year, but look at me, starting new projects all the time. What was I thinking when I said I would finish this comic thingy in just a month if I wrote 20 scripts a day and then created 4 comic issues each day after that…was I on drugs? Nope, I don’t do drugs, so that can’t be it. Was I insane?? I don’t know, people do call me a crazy mother fucker, but that can’t be it either. Hmm, I wonder, oh yeah, now I know, I was day dreaming! Typical me!
It was a pretty hectic day, spent a couple of hours applying for some jobs and, ate breakfast, just a chill day… at least the first half of it. Things took off for real in the afternoon, I drove my mother to buy some groceries, she planned to recycle a few soda bottles and use the money to buy meat for $3 bucks! Anyways, I told her to just buy anything she wanted; the bill went up to $59 bucks! Whatever, I then drove a few blocks to a home depot to buy glue so I can install the sound proofing.
Bought two bottles and while looking around the shop, I found out that they are also selling big long shelves…so I thought… WHY NOT! I bought one big wooden board measuring 400×2000 mm.
Anyways, once home, I sawed it to fit inside the sound booth and suddenly I had a big desk inside the sound booth, perfect! But then I thought… hmm… if only I had one more, but not as broad then it would be perfect as a shelf! So I went out this time on my bicycle and bought one wooden board measuring 300×2000 mm and an additional one measuring 300×1500 mm. The cashier got mad at me because I said hurry up, what a bitch, I was talking to the machine, the laser thingy refused to register my product, so I shouted at it, he thought I was critiquing his inabilities, anyhow, what a bitch.
Once home, I began sawing and screwing the shelves and it was just perfect. The 300×1500 mm was cut in two pieces to make for an L shape. And it was sturdy enough to lay down on… I even pondered if I perhaps should marry two women and let them sleep on one shelf each!
Woke up, showered and then went out to dig a grave. What a normal way to start your day, right? Well, my aunt has an old dog that is sick, they are putting him down to end his suffering, sadly. I helped dig out the grave into a better shape, it looked more like a circle when I got there, perhaps it was some new age shit, I don’t know, I made into a proper rectangle once done. I worked on the casket as well, made it smaller, had to do a lot of sawing and screwing, that sounds weird…let’s try nailing… well ok that made it worse. Stupid naughty language!
Once I was done with that, I went to the shop where I had ordered the bean bag I mentioned last week… or the week before that! Anyways, it has finally arrived, yay! It was perfect and so damn comfy, it has a headrest which also takes shape as you sit and move around, a really nice feature, this is one step closer to finish my library!
I thought about going out to shop for the plants today, but then I thought, hey, the plants don’t come with the pots, so I basically have to buy pots anyways, and the pots at the store might not be what I like, so HEY, I have to buy pots first! And Saturday this weekend is the perfect day for that, every first Saturday of each month, there is a public hangar were people come and sell their stuff, like an old school marketplace / bazaar, so I’m hoping to find some good stuff then… and honestly… I feel like making my own pots using concrete mix… they will get that natural rocky touch… mmm… sexy. Hopefully I will find something that pleases me so I don’t have to START YET A NOTHER PROJECT!
Headache, nausea, spent the day cleaning up some final details, sorted lots of books, placed them on the bookcases, threw away stuff I didn’t need, researched a little more on plants and how they produce oxygen, was trying to figure out if they produce more oxygen than they use when there is no sunlight. But couldn’t find any answer. Anyways, the entire room was filled with dust because I had opened the window the day before, there was basically no dust, or rather a minimal amount of dust, then when I opened the window, the room got filled with dust. Coughed like hell all day because of that. The weather has been shit so I haven’t been able to take my 8 km walks, I feel so damn unproductive without those walks, they are my addiction, well almost.
Headache and nausea sucks, so I just spent the remainder of the day binge watching Sherlock.
The TV series is basically a modern adaptation, and this new Sherlock Holms version seems more like a robot than the Sherlock Holms in the books. Also, his frantic behavior is kind of silly, but it does add contrast for when he gets all serious. I guess it was hard for the writers to show his playful side without using extreme examples. But again, I have only read the old first few Sherlock Holms books, I have no idea how the character develops in the later books.
No more feeling sick, yay. But I do feel the weakness in my body, so it is perhaps not that great of an idea to exhaust and strain myself.
I knew I was going to be sick yesterday, because I remember feeling weak in Tuesday, towards the end of the day. I don’t know how to explain it, but I feel like I can sense the signals in my body, I know the difference between being tired and if I have gotten infected by a virus or bacteria. And when that happens, I usually just take it easy, relax, eat and drink as little as possible to give the body less distractions. I go out for fresh air and relax and keep my body warm. But I didn’t do that this time, instead I went out the next day, on Wednesday and worked my butt off the whole day, and I guess that’s why the virus or whatever won and made me sick.
Planned on taking my 8 km walk today, but it rained all day. That sucks.
I didn’t do much today, I did build a bookcase for my mother according to her design, since we couldn’t find anything similar in any shop! Just need to make shelves for it then it’s done.
Spent the remainder of the day chilling in bed, listened to some music while working on some comic scripts, fell asleep after two hours and woke up four hours later, almost at midnight. Falling back to sleep was a pathetic struggle, so I just watched documentaries and interviews on YouTube until I fell asleep again.
Today I went out and bought a few pots that I liked, they were not exactly how I wanted them, but meh, who cares. The exact type I want cost anything between $100 and $1000, so yeah, it’s not that important. Maybe in the future when I actually have cash to spend on such expensive decorations!
I spent a couple hours going through all the plants I wanted to buy to figure out how many pots will be needed, which resulted in a total of 37 pots! Can you imagine the price tag on that if I bought them for $100 or $1000 each? YIKES!
Been raining for two days straight now, no kidding, just rain rain rain. I guess that’s one big issue with this writing while taking a walk thingy. Anyways, if this keeps up then I might skip the writing and just go for a walk anyways. It’s too important to skip, health wise.
Spent some time facebooking… damn I really need to stop doing that. But, what can I say… I just don’t feel like working intensively… I just get restless and unfocused. It must be because of the lack of exercise the last few weeks. Whatever, I’m not going to complain, things are going forward, soon everything will be perfect and I won’t have anything more to whine about… or will I??? DAM DAM DAM DAAAAM. Stay tuned!
Wasn’t in the mood for much today, I wrote a few comic scripts and then watched YouTube and movies all day while checking out live streams of Trump rallies. I find it silly that there is even a competition, Trump should win by 100% votes, I don’t like either candidate, but, politically speaking, Trump offers the better change. Hillary wants to continue leading the country towards socialism. She wants the government to depend on tax money and the people to depend on government welfare. Obamacare is welfare, just so you know, welfare under a different name.
It might not be obvious to Hillary supporters, but in the future, we will all see the results, people will depend on the government and the government will depend on taxes. Which means as more and more people depend on the government, the more the government has to increase taxes, until a balance is found.
And once that happens, then you have a socialist/communist country, the government will be able to dictate what you must do with your life in order to get that welfare check or that healthcare benefit. They will demand of you to do things in return for receiving your right to that support check. That’s how it works.
Trump on the other hand wants government to depend less on taxes and want the people to depend less on the government, by simply making it easier and less costly to start a business. It’s a no brainer right there, that alone should be enough for 100% of the U.S. population to vote for Trump. It makes absolutely no sense for Hillary to receive a single vote after you read that Trump is going to make it easier and less costly to start a business and run a business.
By lowering taxes, businesses will be able to invest more in other areas that can improve the business and create even more jobs. It’s such a simple thing to understand, do yourself, your future self, your family and your children and your grandchildren a big favor, vote Trump.
