The Sheep, the Goats, and the Muslim Ban

I’m always annoyed at the way a good majority of Christians pick and choose what parts of the Bible they want to abide by. This is especially true in the time of Donald Trump’s Muslim ban. He claims it’s not a ban on Muslims, but we all know it is.

Anyway, I’m most annoyed now of how a lot of Conservative Christians are choosing to ignore the parable of The Sheep and the Goats. For those of you who don’t know what that is, you can read it here:

Mass Effect: Leviathans

The Leviathans in Mass Effect 3 could have been the ultimate plot twist if they hadn’t been shoehorned in at the end of a piece of DLC. Think about it as if the game were a movie.

The Hero is well on the way to defeating the Big Baddy, but finds out there’s a weapon that can help. The trail is shrouded in mystery, people are missing decades worth of memory, and mysterious threatening messages are being sent from them through people.

The Hero finally tracks them down to a water world that’s littered with shipwrecks and everything is pointing to the bottom of the ocean. The Hero gets down there and finds out that they were the original Big Baddy and they almost got wiped out by their creation. What was their creation? The enemy The Hero is fighting now.

Election Disbelief

I’m still in utter awe that in hours Donald Trump will be the forty-fifth president of the United States of America. Mike Pence, someone who is arguably even more horrible, will be only a heartbeat or impeachment away from the presidency. I still halfway can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it.

Posted in 365 Days of Blogging

So it finally happened.

I missed a day, then two, then a week, then a few more. I made it over 200 days though, so overall I’m rather proud of myself. I never stick with anything that long. I’m known for starting things and never finishing them. It’s a hallmark of bipolar disorder. We’re really good at starting things, but finishing them? Not so much. Now I’m left with the question of what to do next.

I’ve had the urge for the longest time to just delete everything and go into hiding, but I don’t think I will. That wouldn’t be fair to you and it wouldn’t be fair to myself. For now, I’m simply going to put the 365 Days of Blogging project on hold until another time. Maybe in a year or so I’ll be able to make it the full 365. I will continue to write (obviously), but it’ll be when I have something that I feel needs to be shared. The whole 365 Days of Blogging project was fun and challenging, but I feel it’s time to move on to something new.

Marriage and Divorce

Divorce when you’re already poor is expensive and time-consuming. Like, I can technically print out the papers and do this myself and only spend around $200. There are two problems with that though:

  1. $200 is a lot when you’re working out how to feed the kids every week.
  2. I don’t have the time to run to the courthouse, sheriff’s office, and post office.

I have two kids. I’m the one caring for said kids. I have to be there when my son gets on and off the bus. Dealing with an almost one year old is a full-time job.

In order to do all this myself, I’d have to go to the courthouse and file the papers, send them to my ex through certified mail or go through the sheriff, go back to the courthouse with proof he got the papers, get a court date, and then show up for court for the final decision. I’m exhausted just typing that out.
