Friday Five – Slowness

Five Thoughts:

  1. UGH. My work computer is super slow today and when I complain about it, I hear in the echoes of my mind “first world problem.” Don’t we do that so often – complain about minor things and feel put out by them? It’s kind of pathetic. I think I’ll try to be more appreciative today.
  2. Yesterday was National Beer Day so I drank my Trooper that I found in a bottle. (Pic below) I didn’t think I’d be ready for beer after last weekend’s bad beer tasting that resulted in a pretty bad hangover. And then I remembered that if you don’t drink bottom of the barrel beer, you feel a heck of a lot better. How do college students drink that swill? Oof. Poor things.
  3. We have no exciting plans for the weekend. I want to clean out my car and the big thing we need to do is clean out the gutters. I can tell you, that will not be fun but it is pretty necessary.
  4. I have a friend who really likes wrestling and we talk about it often, as I was a pretty big fan in the 80s and then again in the “Attitude Era” as it is now called (about ’97-2002 or so). Because I’m a sucker for nostalgia, I am watching old matches today as it is pretty slow at work. I mean, the semester is winding down and there’s not a lot expected of me right now.
  5. In trying to get some photos off my phone, I decided to plug it into my computer but it’s going so slow. Again, why am I complaining? But still. STILL. This post ain’t going nowhere without it! Sigh.

This is so serene

  1. You are right though, it is so easy to complain about first world problems and expect things to work. I think we all do it. Our weekend plans involved soccer and a lot of just sitting around doing nothing, it was kind of nice. Thanks so much for linking up! Sorry I am so slow to come comment.
