So, what's relevant to my life and my ability to accomplish things....

1. Taylor Swift created an app. It's part social network (that has shown just how not perfect this fandom is) and part game...AND I CANNOT STOP PLAYING. As of right now, it has 30 levels and I'm on level 26 (hopefully 27 by tonight). The problem is that once I hit level 20, it started to take days to level up instead of one day. Also, I've dedicated three weeks to playing it now, and like, a LOT of time over the course of those weeks. I just can't stop. I need to get to the top level...'cause there's not much else happening on the app that makes me enjoy it.

2. I've sorted out my marathon training plan for the marathon I want to run on June 3. The thing is, I think the best plan is to run more and to change my schedule. This is really hard for me. Now my rest days will be on my previous running days and I'll be running every day that I had used as a rest day. I totally bombed it this past week...which isn't technically marathon training time. I knew I'd need a couple weeks to get into the rhythm of it, and it's been hard. So I'm hoping to actually stick to it this week. I have to put my brain in the space that this is the schedule I want, which is really hard, because autism.

3. Honestly that Taylor Swift app is taking over my life...and also being so fucking broke and then fucking up and getting a speeding ticket. I feel like I'm moving backward. Plus, some friends had to cancel a visit and I'm super sad about it. OH! And there have been a LOT of doctor appointments lately that I THINK are going to stop soon...but they take up a lot of time and energy.

Totally unrelated to that, I have no idea why, but my Solstice Intimates post keeps garnering comments. Today, I received one on the original post going out of their way to thank Solstice Intimates for showing NOT fat girls but also NOT skinny girls (what the actual fuck) and how THANK YOU and THANK YOU and THANK YOU and also armpit hair. I sent a message to the author letting her know I wouldn't be publishing it, simply because it isn't relevant to the topic since I have NEVER said Solstice lacked representation of color or body hair, ONLY weight, AND THEY HAVE RECTIFIED IT. Like, come on! If you're gonna come at me THANKING a company with whom I take issue and calling me a hater, the least you could do is see that I wrote a more relevant post and go comment on that. I redirected her to the post, told her the comment would be relevant there, but I still might not publish it because I DO NOT CARE ANYMORE...and she called me defensive. Like, she wrote an entire comment THANKING a company that is not me, and I politely told her that I'd already resolved the issue, but I'M DEFENSIVE? (I mean, this paragraph is clearly agitated because of the back and forth, ugh!) Anyway, I told her she needs a dictionary. I'm putting a screenshot of her original, and irrelevant comment below so you can appreciate how someone would come to my blog and post a comment on a post that's a year old, literally thanking a company for an issue that has since been resolved on a site that isn't owned by the company. PEOPLE! (Also, the commenter appears to write a really lovely music review blog that might be worth checking out if you're into music reviews.)

4. I guess I'm just feeling down again and struggling with keeping up with life, and that means this blog ends up by the wayside. So, you know, the usual promises to return...OR WHATEVER. Why do I feel guilty about my own hobby!????? WHHHHHYYYYYY!

As usual, weekly to do list below the hilarious photo for the week.
