Sunday August 6, 2012
I am in a new chapter of my life, so I should probably convey that a little better. I went over my expenses for my trip here to Alberta, and did an average daily expense. To recap, I left June 26th, and the expense report is to July 31st (36 days). My average daily expense was calculated at precisely $59 per day. It’s $84 per day if I take into account first and last month’s rent. A lot of these expenses were random: one was fixing my car, another was paint, yet another was a total waste on exchanging an essentially full propane tank, and probably some others I can’t remember.
Expenses was what I perceived to be an interesting part of my journey, because it was basically my balls in the hands of life: all these expenses, and no cash flow in. It also revealed a certain level of personal information about myself, which is the primary reason I will stop doing this. Instead, these posts will be of a more profound nature. I’ve spoken about these topics before, but I will be capitalizing on them, here in these posts, where I will infuse my own life experiences along the way. I will probably start, finish, or mix in (depending on how I feel) any updates on my own journey, for instance, trips to places on the weekend, how my week went, and any potentially exciting/interesting things from my day-to-day slavish happenings. Without further ado:
My last post was 13 days ago. I was hoping I didn’t have to take any time off, but when Tuesday rolled by, I could barely get out of bed. I had to call it off and explain the situation. Luckily, my boss understood, and he also gave me Wednesday off too. The healing process has been extremely slow – I am still feeling some stiffness – but I am indeed recovering. I bought a ton of food that OpenAI stated is beneficial for reducing inflammation. It happens that these foods are also good for heart health, although, I need to reduce the amount I eat (I’ve been eating massive feasts for dinner), reduce the bacon, and get some good local farm eggs.
I returned to work Thursday. That night I watched the movie “The Island”. I highly recommend watching that movie either before or after listening to this podcast by Jeff Rense, with Lucian Mars (Damien Dumar) “The Last Harvest: A Secret History of Lucifera, Aliens, The Illuminati & The Fate of Humanity”. In the movie The Island, the people in a facility believe they are the survivors of a contagion-level event that occurred on Earth. I won’t spoil the movie, but the connection here is, what if we are under a similar experience, here on Earth? What I’m saying is, this may be an explanation for why so many of us feel like there is something wrong, but we can’t quite put our finger on it. All of us have different ideas for how the world works, and what the true reality of things is, but we can’t come to a consensus because there’s no inambiguous hard evidence.
By Sunday, my back still did not recover as I was hoping, and I was a little disappointed in my roommate/living situation. It’s just good to be around high caliber people – you are the product of the people you surround yourself with, after-all. I don’t have a huge problem with any of them, I’m just not quite sure they are the kind of people that I can use as a reference, to help ensure I keep on improving myself, you know? One thing of note: They watch the news. Here’s the thing, it’s great to want to know what is going on in the world, to have the want and desire to stay informed. However, the news lied to everyone. They said the vaccine was safe and effective. Newsflash – they lied. After that, anyone who keeps watching them, has agreed – they do not respect their own being, and so… whatever happens, happens, and it’s all fair game. That’s the way I see it.
The work week afterwards was very typical, with a minor hiccup on hump day. Wednesday, I came home with a dirty phone. I gently cleaned it off with some water, and let it dry. It was IP68 after all, and I’ve done it before. The next morning, I woke up, did two Spanish lessons in a row, then put my phone to charge. A few moments later, I noticed it wasn’t charging. After restarting it, the touch display no longer worked, and I had to go to work. I was still using GMaps to get to work, but I thought I could wing it. I made it to about 3 or 4 minutes away, but had to pull into a gas station for help. The gas station attended tried to help, but the name of the business is apparently not on google maps – the owner texted me the address himself, before I started working there.
So anyways, I did have my backup phone, but no pin to exchange the SIM card. The station clerk helped me with this by giving me a pushpin, I switched out the SIM, did as much setup as I could, then decided I would try to find it by just driving around. I left the gas bar headed in the right direction when my boss called, at which point I was already a few minutes late. I was really surprised when the call came through, as I couldn’t use the phone yet as I didn’t verify with the older, now-bricked, iphone. Anyways, I got to work about 8 minutes after the time the work truck was supposed to leave, but the day went fine. So yea, like a $700-$800 phone is now a brick. The fact that Apple states they are IP68 rated is a joke. I am comfortable stating that Apple lied and cheated their faces off, in order to get that IP68 rating; another case of classic corporate corruption.
I’ve been eating pizza from the drop off locations. If I drink cola with the pizza, I notice my stomach/intestines aren’t as upset later on. Of course, the cola is horrible too but, pizza is so tasty. I had it earlier this week, and figured this ‘trick’ out on Thursday. Apple cider vinegar would be a far better solution for this, or something else acidic but easy to eat with pizza. Honestly though, cola is a pretty good combo with pizza. I don’t ever drink the stuff anymore; I can’t remember the last time I had a coke. It seemed like quality pizza though, but it’s completely counter to my diet, and I already have enough bread it in, as I haven’t been able to completely remove it just yet.
Anyway, here is something I just though of this Sunday morning: The vax is the modern equivalent of people rolling around in toxic nuclear waste because they think it will give them super powers. Here is a JRE podcast that I’ve yet to watch in its entirety, but hopefully will get to either tonight or tomorrow. Bye for now!
