I am REALLY single this week. So it is time to head to Richmond, and see if there are single guys out.

Andrea E. Menzies In the 80s my brother only had to pay 400 dollars for a full year of full time community college classes. Now it is 600 dollars per ONE CLASS to go to night school at community college. Not ALL types of people can get student loans, and student loans can default.

Andrea E. Menzies “The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent.”
― George Orwell, 1984

Funny Facebook moment of the week:

It is hard to have a social life with all the epic snow Virginia has been having this month.

More on the death toll.

Suicide is what my ex-step brother’s kid committed last week. Everyone thinks depression is a joke or a plea for attention until real death happens. There is so much social stigma in modern day to “seeking therapy” and admitting to depression. Yet something worse can happen, and it is real death. The kid had issues with not getting a job in a really bad recession. A generation of Republican sending jobs overseas has now taken a toll; a death toll.

Funny Facebook moment of the week.

The sun is out, and I am back to being active.

I passed the background check for a job today. Sometimes job hunting can be hard work by itself.

Fun at first, but now I am sick of snow. #snowpocalypse

This is my first big-snow in since my move to Virginia. Alexandria Menzies and I can hardly make snowmen fast enough. ‪#‎snowpocalypse‬.

Snow in the Richmond/DC area keeps being epic. Ice was this long last night, arm size by morning.

Andrea E. Menzies At first I was like “Oh wow snow!” now I am like “Oh man I am so sick of snow.” My driveway is a big chunk of ice, and I can not even get to 7-11 for chips.

I want to make a t-shirt that says that I am not an elitist; I just have social anxiety some days. I don’t hate you, I just hate most human contact. I did not make this joke graphic, yet I understand at once that they mentioned people thinking you “hate people” if you are a natural introvert. Anxiety is a very hard medical condition to have. If a person has a broken leg, other people don’t think they won’t walk around a room because they hate the occupants personally. Yet if a person with anxiety wants to be alone, people around them often feel avoided, personally hated, or that the anxiety person is shaking with anger. It is fear of all humans everywhere equally after I have had a bad night of nightmares about the past. It is NOT love of only Christian blondes or something weird like that issue. In fact YOU are the one being prejudiced against someone with a medical disability to emotionally project that kind of hatred and negativity on people with anxiety. It happened to me several times at school registration this year that people said to “stop shaking with anger” near them. I am a new person, in a new town, filled with new people it is amazing I have met people. I had to laugh it off, and tell them it was NOT hatred. I wonder how many people have made this mistake, and NOT been bold enough to tell me?

I get a new Eracism T-Shirt.

One of the T-Shirts I lost in the Richmond move that I must replace on the 1st is my Eracism T-Shirt.

Andrea Menzies Odd, because the "Coexist" one is only six. I guess people are scared of freedom of religion less on some level. I will end up getting them both. http://6dollarshirts.com/t-shirts/Coexist-p-11209.html

This is a picture from my old church as we go to a new church this weekend. Yes, I do still go to church on the weekends with my family, and donate in the collection box. Just because I tap my toes to a rock song now and then does not mean I know nothing of church and charity. I had an old boss who used to demand that I read Bible quotes he copied, and that I read articles by his most loved mega-church Baptist pastor every morning. I quit the job because he made me very angry with this action. This made me unhappy because A) It takes for granted I know nothing of the Bible already. I graduated from Catholic University where we HAD to take religion classes each semester. I likely know far more about the Bible from my many religion classes I had to take, and made A & B honor roll grades in than he knows. B) I already HAVE a church that I go to that is Catholic. Since when is forced conversion to another faith a normal part of job activities in the United States? Freedom of religion is pretty much PART of the Bill of Rights that is NOT dead. I'd hate to see that one go the way of "Right to Privacy", and never be enforced again at work.

Fallout club was great Monday. So far they let me in without a membership everytime I have gone. Yet at some point I do need a membership of my own to see shows. That is always the tricky part of moving to a new town, how to get into, hear, and see many types of local music. I did it in Austin, New Orleans, LA, San Franciso, Portland, and Seattle, I will do it in the Richmond area too someday.

Doing my last packing before I hit The Road. I am looking forward to three days of travel. Hotels and eating dinner out are always good things… Let’s face it they are fun. However, I am also looking forward to the fresh-start of a new town when I get to Virginia. In a new town you are a new person. When you stay in an old town too long, the people there start to think of you as a weak little cartoon character who never changes. Garfeild HAS to have too much food, Charlie Brown will never be able to kick the football, and Hagar HAS to be horrible. What if you are MORE than the cartoon they have made of you? In a new town your lines are still un-drawn.

Brandon Powell Good luck!

I was using my Tony Little Gazelle Elliptical, and a fitness bike. Now it is packed into boxes for the new house, and I can only use the bike. I miss the Elliptical! Gazelle Elliptical, plus Slendertone belt, plus fitness bike warm-up works REALLY well at causing results. (All available on Amazon.com) I have asthma so I am a bit of an extreme cardio wimp, and I have to hunt down the things that work around the slowness. The Elliptical will be one of the first things I unpack and use. Until then I will make due with just the bike. This month I started using the MapMyRide phone and Internet fitness app. I was using the Endomondo app to post to Facebook when I had a really brag worthy workout day. Yet that app started refusing to do any Facebook posts. Then I saw a few old friends on Facebook had started to post using MapMyRide, and gave it a try. It is pretty fun! Accurate re-posts, and a thriving online friend community. It uses the Fitbit step counter, and I recommend it as an app.

I somehow managed to bike 2.2 miles today. Yet my house was half flooded by the Memorial Day Weekend floods in Austin, TX. Also, I am moving to Richmond, VA. Some weeks it is hard to squeeze in a little bit of recreation.
