A month of 2018.
So far, 2018 isn't much different than 2017. First, so many people from both sides of the political aisle accusing the other of pushing agendas. I wish I could tell everyone, including my friends, to just knock it off already.
There was a school shooting that killed two, and hurt around 20 at Marshall County High School last week. I grew up about 20 miles from there, and attended a rival school district. It's a sad situation. I don't know what I can do to make it better. Everyone sends thoughts and prayers, but it can't fix what happened. A lot of people say bullying was the cause. I don't know, I wasn't there.
Speaking of bullying, I'm glad people are saying something now. When I was in school, I was bullied by a large number of people in school. I was odd, so I was an easy target. No one in those days thought it was a big deal. No one stepped in to defend me. I was told to deal with it myself. Plus, I figured since I was weird, I deserved it. To this day, if I had to do it again, I'd do everything I could to not show my silly sense of humor in school, and tried to be more normal. I was called all sorts of vulgar names, excluded from friend groups and conversations. It was a miserable experience. Some help then would've been nice, but it was all on me. I finally grew up and got away from all that, but there will always be a scar. I somehow managed to become a productive adult, who still to this day worries about how people think of me, but I'm productive.
Anyway, enough of my personal rants for one day. My husband and I did adopt a kitten who needed a home. She is very sweet, but also she is like a personal circus that has moved into our home.
In professional news, my show "Perspectives" is back in production for another 15 episodes. I could use a couple more guests if anyone has suggestions. I'm in the middle of producing and directing college basketball again this year.
Anyway, I hope things are going well with all of you. Hopefully some good things are coming. Thanks for reading my rants too.
