Tuesday I was kind of a mess, thanks to Cobra Kai. I wrote some social media copy for the Kauai scholarships story and we sent it out on our platforms. Also got an email from a new development officer asking what my bandwidth looked like, as she was hoping to send me a proposal draft soon for me to look at. Exciting, working with a new DO. I’m honestly looking forward to this.
Most of the rest of the day, I worked on staff newsletter stuff. We got some pretty good content. I had to write a couple of things but my brain was mush. So I clocked out a little early and got a head start on my nightly nap, then got up and finished everything. Wrote a writing tip column on “every day” vs. “everyday,” and a film review column listing some Asian American movies I consider good representation of the Asian American experience. Yeah, I had certain current events on my mind.
Breakfast was lazy burritos again. I just remembered that I skipped hot dogs for lunch and instead got takeout from Liliha Bakery. The meatloaf again, and it was better than usual for some reason. I had half for lunch and half for dinner. I also picked up waffle batter from the bakery. They used to sell these really good frozen waffles, but they stopped doing it around ten years ago in favor of the waffle batter.
Crush Girl texted me from that burger truck I’ve been meaning to try. She really likes it. Sharon texted to ask a work-related question I had no answer to. Jennifer asked how long it would be after my being fully vaccinated before I’d see a movie in a theater. I didn’t have a good answer, but I think I might go on a weeknight to whatever the latest show it, and if I get freaked out I’ll just leave.
I just did a quick look, and the theaters nearest my house are still closed. Pearlridge and Ward are open, but their latest shows are in the 7:30 to 8:30 range, which is prime time. I don’t know. I might still try it. In two weeks, I’ll be in a position to make the call, which feels good to say but still kind of fills me with anxiety. I don’t know if I know how to be around people anymore.
That might have been it. Tuesday was kind of a fog for me so it’s just as well. I hate to say it, but meatloaf may have been the highlight.
4:00. Off to bed. Hit me up in comments if you need someone to connect with. And hang in there.
