I think I'll get it done yesterday [Friday Five]

We were only practicing fishing because there are no fish in the creek.

  1. As we walked to the car this morning, Henry said to me "The world has changed. The sun is stuck." That's a pretty good way of describing Daylight Saving Time.

  2. So, as I said previously, this past Saturday I was lucky enough to score a ticket to the Harmontown documentary premiere. The movie was great. It definitely showed that while Dan Harmon is a famous guy, he is flawed and broken just like the rest of us. He can be a dick. He can be a narcissist. So can I. There's a moment in the movie when Dan, wearing a lipstick cam behind his ear, goes into the bus bathroom and talks about how he has to change. How he needs to grow up. That really connected with me. I've been saying I need to change for more than a decade now. Sometimes I just don't know how to do it.

  3. I started a digital purge yesterday. I unfollowed a bunch of twitter people. I also trimmed down some RSS feeds and cleared out a ton of "read this later" junk. Most of "to read" stuff I couldn't remember why I saved it anyway. It's classic "Fear of Missing Out" and I want to get over that. I'm sure I'd be a happier person if I did.

  4. I've been reading the newer Guardians of the Galaxy series of comics. I really didn't think I was going to like it but I really do enjoy it. I've finished the first TPB. The movie trailer looks pretty great too.

  5. The True Detective finale. I loved the show. I do wish though that the mysticism / mystery aspects would've persisted a little more. I was saying to Kristin today, "Do you remember how good Lost was at the beginning?" I really want something like that again. A book, a movie, a TV show. Whatever. I think True Detective captured an aspect of it but kind of lost it at the end. I still enjoyed the hell out of it though.

Here's some other links I've liked this week:

What a drag it is getting old.

For a variety of reasons, I am weaning off my anxiety medication. I started the process a little over a week ago and it hasn't been easy. I've lost my patience with everyone at various times. I've been on the verge of crying. I've called myself a failure countless times. I'm doing what I can to make it through the day.

Yesterday was a lot better though. I'm working through it. I've got a therapy session today so I'm excited about that. I'm trying to stay positive and leave the negativity behind. It is definitely not an easy undertaking for me. Negativity seems to thrive inside me and I don't like that. It's this persona that seems to follow me around. I'm done with all that. Well, I hope to be done with all that. I'm counting the little successes of the day and trying not to beat myself up about the things that I don't get done. It's pretty hard work to be a person. 

Saturday in the park.
