Ben Franklin Schedule


I need to get organized. I will be participating in a program in April to get organized we will see how it goes. In the meantime I am inspired by Benjamin Franklin's daily schedule. Now that is a good daily schedule.






What good have I done this day? Does watching 4 episodes of Gilmore Girls count? I doubt it.

Better yet to come


I promise. I have lots to say but no motivation to get it down right. I need motivation in all areas of my life. Although I haven't eaten meat in a month. That at least is something.

Maru




I have enjoyed Maru for some time now. His youtube channel is funny and charming. There is something about a Scottish Fold cat. They have the sweetest faces. He likes to fit himself in small places. He lives in Japan. Maru and his owner are safe. They didn't have to evacuate but they did have bags packed just in case. I hope they remain safe and they have enough water and food and that they are warm enough. It is horrendous to think about what happened in Japan. I hope the people there get back on their feet soon. I also hope Hello Kitty is safe as well.

Step 3


Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.


The cheeseman will keep me from the cheese.


I've made a little space for the cheese slices.

Step 2

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.



Instead of God I am going to use the cheese man from Buffy as my higher power.



I wear the cheese, it does not wear me.

Step 1




I am addicted to cheese.


I want to give up dairy but I need cheese. So I am going to follow the AA 12 steps to do it.



We admitted we were powerless over cheese—that our lives had become unmanageable.




Yes. My life in unmanageable. Nearly every time I overeat it involves cheese. I can't help myself.

So....

So I have decided to become a vegan. I haven't eaten meat for 2 weeks. I have been flirting with vegetarianism my whole life. I recently read Veganist by Kathy Freston. She didn't state anything I hadn't heard before. It was just a reminder of things I need to change. I usually don't last long with abstaining from meat because of laziness. Also I don't like to be inconvenient, it makes family and other social gatherings easy if you eat meat. This time I am going to really do it and it anyone has a problem with it....too bad.

Most of these facts are taken from Veganist.

Short list of reasons why I don't want to eat meat anymore:

1. Meat is unsanitary . 69% of pork and beef and 92 % of chicken in the grocery store have fecal contamination. There is a reason you can't get a medium rare burger anymore. Gross.

2. You can help the environment. A person prevents more climate change pollution by going vegetarian than by switching to a hybrid car.

3. You would help starving people in the world. If more people quit eating meat it would free up the grain crops and those crops could be sold to under developed countries instead of being sold to feed livestock. True they would have to grow grain humans could eat not the industrial stuff.

4. Cruelty to animals. Not that I don't believe we should never kill animals for food. We can. I just don't agree with the way they are treated in the modern slaughterhouses. The stories are horrible and these are not isolated incidences these things happen every day. I don't want to be a part of it. I used to think that by giving up meat I would be cruelty free but there is lots of cruelty in the lives of chickens and cows who provide us with eggs and milk. Giving up dairy is going to be very hard but I want to.

5. Health. I have read account after account of how veganism cures, heart disease, diabetes, cancer etc.

And don't tell me I won't get enough protein. You don't need as much as you think. The only thing I will need that I won't get from meat is b12. B12 doesn't even really come from meat but from bacteria in the animals digestive tract which is again gross. I can get my b12 somewhere else.

I heart Buffy!

I am sad the Buffy comic is on hiatus for a while. I miss my monthly fix.




Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Tiffany Joy
I understand why people cut themselves but they shouldn't. Life will end up hurting you way more than any razor blade could.

Find something to love instead. No matter how small there is something out there that can make you happy something that can get you through the day.

I am not sad I am just reflecting.

Five steps of grieving




I have cycled through these 5 stages more than once recently. I guess getting your heart broken just proves that you felt something.


Denial:

No this can't be happening, not to me.

Denial ain't just a river in Egypt. -Mark Twain

Anger:

Why me? It's not fair!

An angry man opens his mouth and shuts his eyes. - Cato

Bargaining:

I will put up with anything just don't go away.

Those who give hoping to be rewarded with honor are not giving, they are bargaining. -Philo

Depression:

I'm so sad, why bother with anything.

Art saved me; it got me through my depression and self-loathing, back to a place of innocence. Jeanette Winterson

Acceptance:

It's going to be okay.

It will be. A new hair cut, some new clothes, some new electronics. Now I just need a new man, a new object of affection.

Anyway moving on...
