Of travel, work, and disinteresting things.

Standard

Nothing interested me today. I spent the weekend at my mom’s house down in Southwest Texas and really didn’t feel like coming back. Ever. I wanted to throw in the towel, toss my hands in the air, and dance around in circles yelling about how few the number of fucks were that I gave. Sadly, I’m responsible. Mom says she’s not sure where I got that gene, but I know that I have worked hard to cultivate it. I drove the three hours back up to the Woodlands to hit up work, then I even hit the gym. And the whole time, I was staring blankly at objects that made me feel empty. My student’s house — a three story family home with multiple living rooms and enough family to fill it. My exercise bike — with it’s annoying, green, blinking screen and the half-assed clicking of the pedals hitting metal as my feet pressed them with no interest and even less energy. My car — constantly needing to be filled with gas, when it seemed I was going nowhere. My hands — with my phone filling them, staring at the black screen, then putting it down in disinterest, and picking it back up again because it’s habit. I’ve hit a wall of depression and I’m scared. It’s been about eight months since I’ve truly struggled with this. What changed? What’s new? Perhaps it’s the stress, weighing me down like someone’s crouched on my shoulders. Or the impending move back to Alaska causing the worry that doesn’t seem to leave my forehead. Or this emptiness I feel when I talk to God, like He’s not listening. I know He is — I know He cares. But I can’t feel it right now. Seems like I’m having a hard time feeling anything. What’s wrong with me?

Elon Musk to Make James Bond Submarine Car a Reality

Standard

Yes please!! I’ll take seven.

Books I Read

If anyone can make it happen, it’s Elon Musk. A report from CNN:

Thursday night, a Tesla Motors spokeswoman confirmed that the submarine, modeled after a Lotus sports car, had been bought by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Musk plans to take the movie prop and turn it into an actual car that transforms into a submarine, the very thing it was built to portray in the movie.

“I was disappointed to learn that it can’t actually transform,” Musk said in a statement provided by Tesla. “What I’m going to do is upgrade it with a Tesla electric powertrain and try to make it transform for real.”

What will he think of next?

Best Places to Get WordPress Themes

Standard

Okay, y’all, I’m gonna nerd out! Prepare yourselves!
I decided to make a post on the best places to acquire a theme for your blog, since appearances and first impressions are the most important part pulling people in — so here you go.

“Our huge portfolio of WordPress themes covers most niches. All powered by our versatile WooFramework you get a beautiful site with incredible flexibility. The perfect building block for designers and developers.”

…”for photographers, artists, bloggers and entrepreneurs.” This is a phenomenal site. I love that you can select what TYPE of theme you want in the very beginning. The navigational ease is awesome.

Pricey, but AMAZINGLY designed themes at Creative Market are plentiful. I highly recommend them.
