I think it is more of a depression. I have been doing too much Facebook bingeing because of the upcoming USA election. It has been really interesting, but also really depressing. How can a humanoid reptile like Trump actually achieve the Republican party nomination?
And Hillary. I am so excited by the prospect of the first woman president of the USA!!! But I wish I could believe she had more integrity. I wish both of the two main parties weren’t so obviously in the thrall of Wall Street. I wish I still lived in never never never-actually-was land.
I spent a fair amount of reading time watching convention speeches. And reading political pundits. Does reading political pundits count? As reading? Everything is so terribly serious. I would like to see more fun and less dire warnings. As I posted, too many pundits, not enough puns.
Actually, I feel motivated to read, I just can’t get into anything. I swear I started 12 books. Four of them I tossed because they were awful (figuratively, because digital), three I have open on the carousel, because I am sure I will like them if I can get my mojo back to doing whatever it is mojos do, and one is a review read for an author I really like, so I know I will like it, just am having trouble getting into the zone. The rest I put back in the list.
I also have two books for which I need to write up blog entries, which I promise to do for tomorrow and Monday.
Now that the primaries and the conventions are over, I think I can get back to my old routine of having my nose in a book when I should be doing many other things. Hey! That’s the secret! I will make myself a To Do list, and in order to avoid doing any of the list, I will read. Always worked before.
