Today was informative. It was a good day for The Resistance. Visible effort is taking place to hold 45 accountable for his crimes. Watching 45 tweet another lie during the meeting and get called out for being a fucking liar was icing on top. The Obama administration came through for Flint, finally. They were given the funds to fix their undrinkable water problem. 45 tried to take credit for this, too. But in reality, it was Obama.
It sucks having a shitty used car salesman sitting in the White House, pretending to be a leader. I’ll be glad when he’s in prison. So anyway, I’m on book 8 of The Wheel of Time series now. It’s my fourth time reading this series, but I still catch things I missed. This is the series that convinced me to buy my first Kindle. I like having the entire series in my hand. I remember how awful it was as a kid to have to wait until the next trip to the library to continue reading. I didn’t walk barefoot uphill both ways through 8 feet of snow, but it still sucked.
I’m working on a new song that’s been bugging me. I got a software program with much better sounds for my midi drum kit. I also got some gloves to prevent getting more blisters. I suspect I hold the sticks too tightly. I’m trying to be conscious of my posture while practicing, too. I know from learning other instruments it’s harder to unlearn bad habits than it is to learn good ones. I play better when I’m sitting properly. I like practicing. I have to remember to remove my FitBit before I practice, or it will tell me I ran a 5K while seated. The first time I noticed this issue, I thought I was having a particularly hyper day before realizing it was from drumming. I’m probably going to read all night again. I’ve been having nightmares about the Florida inmate who was boiled to death by the guards who won’t be facing any consequences. Sigh.
