The Ghost Writer

I have no body of my own,
I exist in another zone,
I speak up in the microphone,
The voice you hear, another tone.

I shake the shackles of my chain,
I cannot even moan my pain,
They shrug at me with pure disdain,
My existence has been in vain.

And yet, yourself, my words you use,
Constrain me with your own abuse,
Squeeze my essence for your juice.
For the things you must produce.

Hang In There

Life is tough, and it can be sometimes hard to go on… but yeah, we just need to hang in there. It will get better.

There’s something about the holidays that can be stressful. It could be the hustle and bustle and the rush of getting things done in time, it could even be as simple as dealing with family members in gatherings. The addition of the pandemic this year is no help, too.

However, it will pass. It may be hard, but you’ll survive.

Don’t let dark, intruding thoughts in. Be busy, do things. When your body is moving, your mind is not thinking. That may be good for you. Give it a try.

If not, write it down. Write whatever dark emotion you have inside and let it out. You may not have the privilege of having someone to confide in. If you do, consider yourself lucky. Don’t keep it all inside. It will just make things worse.

I wrote these down as a reminder and advice to myself. I thought that it might help you, or a friend.

With the self-quarantine in place and a lot of us having to stay at home, you’d think that you’d have a lot of free time to be more productive, right?

Unfortunately, that isn’t the case for me.

Sure, I had more time on my hands, but I ended up using those time to sleep in, watch movies or TVseries… basically not a lot of the “productive output” I was expecting.

It is Okay to Be Happy – A BoJack Horseman Review

9hrw03o0w3e41

For the past few weeks I had been watching BoJack Horseman on Netflix, to the point that my wife got sick of seeing me watching “that ugly horse cartoon again” over and over again. Hahaha…

I have to admit – the show got me hooked. I could not help but relate to the things the characters were going through – the depression, the anxiety, the addiction, the entire mess of their lives.

If you haven’t watched the series finale yet, mild (really mild) spoilers ahead. You have been warned. 🙂
