My Split Weekend

Well, my split weekend is here. I have Friday and Sunday off. I so, so, so miss my two days off in a row. One day soon maybe, hopefully, possibly.

I’m exhausted and frustrated, it was just one of those days. Also found out some terrifying financial news, but I’ll be alright.

Just finished my glass of wine and now it’s time for a nice hot shower. Tried a random new one this time, Black Swan Shiraz-Merlot. Pretty good.

Silly, Fluffy Pop Songs…Gotta Love ’em

It's amazing how a silly, fluffy pop song can remind me that life really is incredibly wonderful.  Am listening to Hellogoodbye's "Here (In Your Arms)" and it has pulled a 180 on my mood.

I've got lots of turmoil going on in my mind, lots of decisions to make, some that will not be fun no matter what I choose, but life isn't bad.  I live in a gorgeous home in a gorgeous city in a wonderful state in an amazing country.  I have more than enough(too much) food to eat on a daily basis, and I never really worry if I'll have food to eat.  I have clean water to drink, and a steady job that ranks me in the TOP 4.04% richest people in the world(Don't be shocked, you're probably higher.  Check it out at http://www.globalrichlist.com/)

To see that as someone who works a regular everyday job, and I'm in the top 4.04% of people in the world in relation to income, wow, that's sad.  I strongly encourage you to check out that Web site and see where you rank.  A few tidbits from the Web site:

$8 could buy you 15 organic apples OR 25 fruit trees for farmers in Honduras to grow and sell fruit at their local market.

$30 could buy you an ER DVD Boxset OR a First Aid kit for a village in Haiti.

$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.

$2400 could buy you a second generation High Definition TV OR schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village.

Wow, I'm fortunate, that's all I can say.  And if you are able to be on a computer reading this, so are you.
