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.

Producing & Directing RSU Basketball.

Anyway, I hope things are going well with all of you. Hopefully some good things are coming. Thanks for reading my rants too.

I've been keeping myself fairly busy. We are back into production season at the TV station. Our control room has been renovated, and the space is used much more wisely now. I was just the subject of a
