The world is a scary place right now. After Orlando and the EU Referendum, along with the huge political mess happening in my home country because of it, I’m feeling shaken. Top that off with the fact that Trump exists and I’m under 100km from the USA, it’s not been a great time lately.
Plus I had a root canal. Minor in the scheme of things but let’s just say I don’t make it easy on dentists with my mouth that refuses to numb for nine shots. Ow.
Thanks to all of this happening in conjunction with some personal stuff that is extremely triggering to me, I’m not at my best. I’m trying to keep up with stuff and doing an okay job considering how hard everything is, but I certainly don’t have much energy left for much more than the basics.
That said, life is not at all bad. I’ve been a permanent resident of Canada for two years now. I’ve been with my girlfriend for six years as of Sunday. I’m reading some fantastic books and will be getting up reviews soon enough.
And this morning I took the dog out for a run and he was super cute. Who can stay sad with that smiley face running at you?
This evening I’m going to a ukulele club. I’ll tell you more about that another time, for it is awesome, and I must go to work.
Tell me something awesome about life, friends and readers! We need more positivity in the world to counteract the nonsense.
