It's Not You, It's Me

My relationship with the Internet lately:

Or maybe it's you? Who knows. Seriously though, it pains me that something that has brought so many awesome people into my life is such a source of angst for me lately. I feel like can't take people these days though. From comments on political articles to inane bullshit on social media- I don't know what's going on with me other than my filter is broken. I feel like can't siphon out all the stuff that bothers me and focus on the good anymore. I probably need a break. In fact I'm sure of it. I took two weeks off of online interacting last summer and it did me some good. I'm just frustrated that I'm back feeling the same way again so quickly. I need to spend time focusing on people I enjoy in real life for a while and just try and forget all the racism, sexism, narcissism and other isms that have been infecting my bubble lately.

Backing away slowly.

Up the Wolves

One of my favorite Mountain Goats songs! (Also the only one I know how to play right now.) I duff the chords spectacularly towards the end but I keep on keeping on. It's what you gotta do.
