Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. How often have you heard that growing up? As a child, I remember getting breakfast in was easy because my mother made it readily available or there was always cereal to eat. As a teenager, it was always Pop-Tarts. Pop-Tarts were never bad for you back then. They were actually considered very healthy and then the times changed and things with high fructose corn syrup and white bread became very bad for you. Then you hit college and it became all about sleeping more than anything because you had that school grind to follow each day. My dorm room was located in the same building as the dining hall. In addition to that, I used to work in said dining hall so each morning, breakfast was easy because all I had to do was walk downstairs and fill my plate buffet style. That only lasted until I moved into my own apartment at the end of that first year. I still had the dining hall available but that required too much walking to get there so I started skipping breakfast. And that’s sort of trickled into my adult life ever since.

No, seriously. I try to be a good girl and eat my serving of dark leafy greens but CLEARLY, there’s a reason I’m carnivorous and here’s the story detailing why:
Yesterday I had a lazy blog day. Well the day before was sort of lazy blog day too. Anyway, I’ve been quite exhausted lately because late last week and early this week has been all about carpet cleaning at my workplace. This meant that everything that could come off the floor without breaking backs, came off the floor. The primary ingredient for the products that are made here is graphite. This place has been in business since 1971 so you can imagine how much graphite was on absolutely everything; layers upon layers upon layers.
I may have mentioned this before in one of the many tags that I’ve done but for those who are fairly new to the blog, I’m a major tech nerd. My favorite operating systems to play with are Microsoft based software and Android operating systems. I make it a point to keep up with any and all tech news surrounding these two players.
We are on our way home from middle of nowhere Pennsylvania and since it’s technically Monday, I feel obligated to post something.
So, Happy Labor Day and here’s a picture of Blue Mountain and under it!
I was thinking about what I wanted to write about today and I keep thinking about my skills sets. My husband and I watched this episode of Black Mirror last night. The premise of the episode was that all humans are rated on a five star scale; kind of like when you leave a restaurant or book review. Each person you encountered was rated based on the experience you had with them. The higher your rating the more you could get in life. For example, the main character was looking to move into this prestigious housing complex but in order to pay a discounted price, her star rating had to be 4.5 and above. At the time, her rating was only a 4.2 so she would go around the neighborhood interacting in a friendly way with people in order to get a boost in her ratings. She would also post happy go lucky pictures on her feed to get people to give her more 5 star ratings.
I’m drawing a blank today. Probably because it rained all night and I’m a light sleeper so I didn’t, actually, fully sleep. It was one of those hovering between awake and asleep situations. Are you a light sleeper or a deep sleeper? My husband sleeps like the dead. I’m jealous.
I logged in to my WordPress dashboard to this:
Talk about these numbers! (I swear I’m not possessed)
You ever have those posts where you can’t just think of a title because you’re not sure where you’re going in your writing yet? Even by the end of this I don’t think it’ll have a title. This is kind of a random rant; fair warning.
I want to start by saying I’m not a religious person. I didn’t grow up with it and never really had a desire to delve into that world. I don’t judge others on their beliefs as long as they don’t judge me on having no beliefs. On Friday I got to witness one of my very best friends on this planet marry his long time boyfriend. I remember years back when he would say if gay marriage was ever legal in Ohio he would marry within two months of it happening. So last year when it actually became reality you can imagine how we all felt. He didn’t stick to the within two months but that’s okay because it did happen. This wedding was the most last minute, thrown together wedding I’ve ever seen but it was bursting with love! I mean, it’s indescribable really but it made me feel some kind of way.
You ever have that moment where you can’t decide if you want to write about one thing or something else? That’s me, right now. So instead of picking one, I’m going to write about both and I apologize in advance if it’s too messy for you to follow along,
The daily prompt word today is outlier. An outlier is a person or thing situated or detached from the main body or system.
