Not looking forward to it.

Last week, I took a little time off, if you will. It wasn’t a good week; we had the RNC, which was bad enough, then Kenosha happened. There were protests. People were killed.

It was a spectacularly terrible week and it didn’t get better, either.

We lost Chadwick Boseman to colon cancer. He’d been fighting it for the last four years. The day he died was Jackie Robinson day for MLB, the anniversary of the March on Washington, and the birthday of Jack Kirby, who created the Black Panther.

I don’t know what you’re trying to say, 2020, but I don’t like it.

On a more personal note, I had some bad days at work, culminating in a royally stupid Sunday. I’d pretty much had it with people and it showed.

It was a seriously awful week. Mentally exhausting, to put it gently. I was so upset and overwhelmed that I almost didn’t put together a Seven Quick Takes post! It truly was exhausting.

That’s why I fell back on some videos; mostly because it was easier to post them but mainly because they could help lift a few spirits. To say that the news cycle for this year is overwhelming is being polite. It’s rough right now.

But now starts another week. New beginning, if you will. And a new month as well.

We don’t have long now. We’re in the home stretch of 2020. We’ve made it this far, we can get to 2021. It might take us several dozen more kitten videos, but we’ll make it.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
