Needless to say, she came back with that familiar wide-eyed, paranoid Doctor Whovian look. I nodded knowingly and we started the new workday shared exciting details about our individual experiences with the episode.
[Side note: Do you think it's necessary to watch the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood (at least the first season) before the end of Doctor Who Season 3? Or does it matter? Thoughts?]
Now, I just get to be a customer and I don't have to worry about forgetting to ask for someone's grocery reward card.
I'm really looking forward to the time I will have now that I am only working Monday through Friday. I feel like I can get so much accomplished - write Christmas Thank-yous, sort and file old bills, shred the box of spam mail, wash dishes - big and little things.
I also want to volunteer! I want to get involved and learn new skills!
Like I said in the first paragraph, I'm very passionate about things that I like. I spend a lot of time on the internet indulging in fandoms, activites and aesthetics that I enjoy - Doctor Who, Steampunk, Abandoned Buildings, Disney, Harry Potter, Nerdfighteria, to name a few. I'm on Tumblr and Facebook and sometimes Twitter exploring mutually enjoyable content with other participants. My friend Rachel V. and I have been vlogging back and forth to each other on Thursdays (alternating each Thursday) and that is a BLAST. (I'm rediscovering how much I really like video editing - but that's a whole different blog post.)
I wanted to post something. I wanted to research and support my argument with proven facts and just show how ill-conceived this infographic was. How it didn't cover the whole picture. How by sharing it with the people on Facebook it continues to perpetuate these crazy misconceptions.
But I didn't. I didn't want to start a fight. I didn't want to open myself to emotional blackmail. I didn't want to start a debate where the main participants would be straw men and the Texas Sharpshooter. So I didn't comment. I vented instead on Twitter.
A former college classmate replied and informed me of what a friend of his does when he sees someone posting something on the internet and he wants to argue.
He posts an article about lizards instead.
