I just signed up for a Sarah Jenks program. She knows a lot about the history of Christianity. That’s not what she is all about. I just have to give her backstory because I can’t find a source for what she said. Sarah said the word virgin meant a woman unto herself. An independent woman. I can relate. 😉 Of course, in recent times, people paint virginity as bad because they are insecure about their own sexuality.
Why can’t I be a virgin and someone else be comfortable with their sexuality? I think we can do both. With women claiming their sexuality or whatever they call it, being a virgin is definitely wrong and weird. I can show the words of so-called enlightened people telling people they need to get laid. Yeah, these people claimed to be enlightened. In the words of Donald Trump, “sad”!
Anyway, it is so delightful to have someone say something nice about virginity! Even if it was thousands of years ago. I guess some people don’t think an independent woman or a woman unto herself is good, but I take it as a compliment.
I don’t advertise my virginity in this blog because it isn’t important to me. I rarely think about it unless I’m trying to get out of a pap smear. Lol. But yes it’s true: I’m a virgin, and I never plan on having sex. I’m pretty sure I’m not missing anything. Sex seems like a hassle to me, but I think that about a lot of things people do.
I don’t think I’m staying in Sarah Jenks’ program. I’ve been an admirer of Sarah for years, but this content seems to be geared towards moms. Sarah is a mom of two with one on the way! So it makes sense. It just isn’t my life. I can’t relate to losing oneself by becoming a mom and all that. I’ll probably cancel next month. I just wanted the $200 worth of free bonuses. Sad, but true. And I love the bonuses! Totally worth it.
I don’t think I would ever fly with my dog. I guess if I were moving to California or somewhere on the west coast, I would have to drive. I don’t know what I would do if I were moving overseas. I felt this way prior to the recent dog’s death on United. How tragic. I would be outraged if it weren’t too sad to think about. And then there’s the dog United recently sent to Japan by mistake. I would be out of my mind if my dog were in Japan. I would be at the airport, waiting for my dog. I don’t care if they said it will take 3 days. I would be sleeping at the damn airport until my dog came back.
Don’t mess with my pup!
With all that being said, I would still fly United…just not with a pet. I flew United to LA and I didn’t have any major problems. Compared to Vegas, the LA trip was a breeze.
OMG. My lawnmower started immediately! I don’t know what happened last year. It took almost an hour for it to start after last winter. YAY! I will probably have to mow the lawn in about 2 to 3 weeks. Slight bummer, but it is great exercise.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Camila Cabello, Shakira, Kacey Musgraves, Delta Goodrem, Ellie Goulding, Justin Timberlake, Kesha, Taylor Swift
TV of the week: My 600lb life, basketball, RHONYC
So much fun watching March Madness! It is the most wonderful time of the year. Go UVA!! I usually take Thursday and Friday off from work, but I couldn’t this year due to training and other people requested time off before I had the chance. I think this is the first year in about 7 years, I don’t have time off for March Madness.
P.S. I do have my birthday off, BUT I will probably have a training related meeting that day. The meetings usually last 2-3 hours so I will have to attend that if there is one. But no work for me otherwise. yay!
Movie of the week: none
Podcasts of the week: True Crime Garage, The Lowe Post, All in With Chris Hayes
Books of the week: I finished reading Bliss More: How to Succeed in Meditation Without Really Trying by Light Watkins. 4 stars for me, but I would say 5 stars to get new meditators to read it. 😉 I’ve been meditating for more than a year now (off and on – mostly on). A lot of the info in the book wasn’t that useful to me because I already knew it or I already do it. But I would definitely recommend it to people who want to start a meditation practice or to people who quit meditation because they grew frustrated.
This book did get me meditating for 10 minutes every morning. I used to only meditate for 5 minutes every morning. I also started meditating first thing in the morning which seems obvious. I used to pray first and then meditate. Now I need to meditate for 10 minutes every afternoon/evening. That would give me 20 minutes a day of meditation, and that is all I feel I need.
Now reading –
- The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
- don Miguel’s Little Book of Wisdom: The Essential Teachings by don Miguel Ruiz Jr.
I may start The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn this weekend. I’ve been dying to start this book for the past 2 months but holds from the library keep coming in. The books I own always get read last.
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Get To Work Book (coming Sunday)
Plans for the Weekend: On Saturday, I’m working a few hours and then I’m going grocery shopping. On Sunday, I’m staying in and taking another test. I made a 92 on my last test. That was a shock. I didn’t even read the whole chapter. Next Sunday I will probably go to my last cycling class. My Groupon will be done after that.
Thanks for reading! Have a splendid weekend. 🙂
