Stream of Conscious Post

Ha hmmmmmm ok so stream of conscious how come I forget how to spell when I have a great idea?? I like posting about things that are rattling around in my brain. Things I fell over here and there or thought about. People really fascinate me. Wonder why. This is an interesting exercise and I wonder when I am done guess it is when I run out of stream. Sorry had to correct that spelling I am a little OCD about that. I liked my post today for the Team Pepper. That little girl inspires me. Wonder what it is like to live with a condition like Aspergers or Autism. Can’t be easy can it? Then again living inside your own head must let you find out things about yourself you wouldn’t ordinarily.

We spend an awful lot of time pleasing others and not really getting to know ourselves. I am retired now so I really don’t have to do that any more and it feels really good. Being downsized at my age after twenty seven years hurt at first but now I am glad. I am getting to know more about me. Maybe that is why I enjoy blogging. Getting in touch with my real thoughts.

Sharing my views on just about everything that enters my mind. Fasten your seatbelts it is going to be a bumpy ride. I am just a lady of a certain age somewhere between the dinosaurs and stalactites. Musing over lessons learned and sharing those with others. I really am interested in your views on what I write so fire away and thank you for taking the time to check out my blog. https://wordpress.com/stats/galemolinari.wordpress.com this is my poetry blog perhaps you would enjoy that too!!

  1. I think we share similar experiences. I too have been involuntarily semi-retired and I have adjusted to it in that it is hard to think of working for someone else full-time again. I saw a post by someone a while back where the guy called being downsized, let go, fired as being involuntarily unemployed. I love the euphemisms.

    1. I blame Obama Care they are down sizing us because they think we are more expensive for medical coverage. Yea it was bullshit. I made more than some of the kids that were getting out of college with degrees. People are impressed by degrees not experience. I was really angry. Never even got the cheap gold watch they give for thirty years. For twenty five they never even mentioned it. I worked for the Metropolitan Opera run by a megalomaniac. I am so glad I am out of there. I have a pension and with the costs of traveling am doing as well as I did there so I am staying warm this winter blogging away. hahahahaa Hope things are going well for you sometimes these things happen for the best. At least I was retirement age a lot of people have a lot longer to go and no pension. I was very lucky.

      1. I try to think that things happen for the best as well. I do not have a pension because I worked part-time a lot during my life to stay home with my kids. I went back to college to get a teaching credential and found the teaching jobs had dried up and I am pretty sure age had something to with it as well. So as I said I have gotten accustomed to not being in the working world any more. I work a bit as a tutor. I am realizing that there is a shift inside me now and I do not have that drive to be giving most of energy to working. I think I need this time as well to reflect and get in touch with myself again.

  2. I’ve been effectively retired since last August: all this experience, but no one wants to hire someone who has to work at home. I’ve been on disability since January, so it’s like being retired. Anyway, I started blogging every day in July, and it’s been good for me. It sounds like it’s working for you, too.

    1. I am sorry about that but it does help. I always liked writing and psychology but never had the time to pursue it. Now I do. Helps to talk to people in the same boat as well and I think that there are a lot of us.
