I’d laugh, but it is legitimately scary…
News-wise, this is a heavy week. First, the Queen died. I always loved seeing pictures of her and her corgis. The discussion about whether or not people should be sad since colonization by the British is bad is a bit daunting. I think you can be sad someone died but also not like some decisions her government made. Everyone is just so quick to argue about everything on social media.
Today is September 11th. I was in college when the tragedy happened. I actually attended college right next to Wright Patterson Airforce Base so it was CRAZY. The base was evacuated of all non essential personnel and the university closed (because we are so close to the base). Watching it all unfold was one of the most shocking things I have ever seen. I mean, I had been to NY and seen those buildings in person. Something about seeing a place I had been made it all feel scarier. I will never forget the people jumping out the windows. Seriously, it is scarred into by consciousness as a terrible consequence of violence.
So, yeah, all that aside, this week was fair break at school. I still had to work, but me and the other school psychologist were the ONLY two people in the district who had to work. I went in on Tuesday and Wednesday, but then worked from home on Thursday and Friday because being in a big building alone was just weird.
I leave for Spokane, WA in 1 week. I have always been a bit nervous about travel, even before COVID. I always get sick from airplanes. But a new fear has emerged-someone yelling at me for wearing a mask. I keep seeing videos of people FREAKING OUT on other people because they are wearing a mask. I’m sure it won’t actually be a problem, but still. Also, being hearing impaired and traveling alone is NOT easy. Oh, and having Celiacs doesn’t help either. So, hit me with your travel tips if you have flown recently!
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
