Story time :
A coworker mentioned showing up an hour early on accident forgetting it wasnt Monday hours yesterday.
I told them I had once taken a day off in advance and accidentally showed up to work, they were like “clearly you didn’t have anything big planned.”
I don’t think parents understand me and my need to have a random day off without an agenda or obligation.
I suspect creatives might understand this.
Or maybe it’s just one of my quirks.
This morning it came to my attention that *I* don’t understand parents of human children. Check this out.
I was listening to the radio- 1 06.1FM,Jubil was taking advice on the confession line which I don’t normally pay any attention to but for some reason this caught mine because I was jamming out to the song they were playing right before the talk segment. Anyway, this dad is on the line with a confession and a hack about how to take your child’s sass away here’s what he did. She was 9 years old and a serious Minecraft player , I’m no gamer. I played N64, we had mariokart growing up. Just mariokart. Anyway, while messing with his daughters phone, he accidentally deleted 3 worlds from her game. She was devastated. Instead of apologizing and taking responsibility for doing this himself- he takes the opportunity to tell his daughter, who has a bit of an attitude, that ‘sassy girls often have glitches in their computers …and that’s probably why it happened.’
The dad remarked this move worked well: her behavior was swiftly checked for a few days.
I cannot with this!
My take? However you feel right now, you gotta know,
is an appropriate response to this world.
😂 It reminded me of my Royal Foxes shining those Savage Crowns.
“👑🦊 You’re like a little wild thing that was never sent to school. -M O
He’s a little moody. I think all of us has a little bit of the Royal in them… some are just a little better medicated, that’s all 😆.”
Mood and monsters, FOREVER!!!!✊
Tl;dr :However you’re feeling, right now is an appropriate response to this world. Don’t fall for toxic positivity. Everyone will always tell you to be happy. Part of my purpose in sharing my work and thoughts is advocating to normalize the emotional spectrum. You’re a human. You’re entitled to the full range. It’s a package deal.
