I don’t know exactly how to start this introduction, so I’ll jump right into it! I go by IffyBiffy for two reasons: 1) A big part of the Username was a nickname my Mimi used to call me 2) and I’m almost always Iffy about something! I’m totally up for sharing about my problems with anxiety and the constant fight to keep my dark clouds away! Don’t be afraid to reach out to talk about either! 🙂
I’ve been on a roll working as much as I’m asked. Blame covid. It told us “this isn’t my final form” and now we’ve got a few coworkers out quarantining. Hopefully they don’t have it, fingers crossed. I’ve been sleeping as much as I can which is why I’ve been so absent. Every time my phone rings I can safely assume it’s work. Not that I mind. I was just given a raise and if you multiply that with my hours you get… well you get money. And I love money. Of course, I also love sleep and writing while drunk so there’s been one night during the week where I try to tackle the latter.
My personal life has been a bit hectic, as well. Normally if any drama goes on, it’s through work. This has been a bit of a week and all I can say is that it’s not over but things have calmed down. My family has been worrying over my mom and her ordeal. I ended up glued to my phone last night instead of celebrating one of my friend’s birthdays. Of course, he was too drunk to mind. He’s an awesome dude. It’s always nice to see him and his fiancé. They are just too cute! (That’s how my mom says it. “You’re just too cute”)
Anyway, I need to get back to work. The big bosses are here to help us out since covid has been wreaking havoc on us and I’m sure they’d appreciate me not posting something too long. Plus my frazzled brain can’t think of anything else to say. Maybe I can update better tomorrow after I’ve had a nice soak in the bathtub.
13 days into the new year. Already, I could write a short story about the drama in my life. This is ridiculous. I need to find some way to take hold of the reins and guide her through this. If we don’t try who knows if we’ll ever have another chance like this again!
I just got back from having 3 days off during, probably, the worst time to have off. One of my best friends has just graduated college and I couldn’t wait to celebrate this amazing milestone with her! I almost wasn’t able to go due to being severely understaffed, so I appreciate my boss letting me go. Still, I’ll be working my butt off the next two days.
The other day I was sent a link to The Bipolar Writer Podcast for the interview James and I did a few weeks back. I was excited to listen to it and am finally getting to it! I actually received an email from a listener and it completely made my night! I have to say, the background music was one of my favorite parts of the podcast! It was peaceful, and tied everything together. If it was just my awkward a$$ voice, I don’t think anyone would listen haha.
I had a fun time doing the interview and I hope others will reach out to James and share their stories.
Has anyone ever baffled you speechless?
And this could be anything they’ve done or said. I think my favorite stories of this are usually people saying something absolutely stupid that they believe. (An example being anytime anyone tells me Covid is a hoax)
Do you have a favorite reference that makes you laugh?
For example, I laugh every time I hear someone reference a video from Vine.
And mental health goals this new year?
For the most part, I tend to keep my yearly follower goals to myself because it isn’t that big of a deal. However, I woke up this morning to my blog officially reaching 200 WordPress followers. I did some yoga in celebration and I have to say:
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH
On the topic of jobs, what has been your favorite job and what would be your dream job? I’d like to see how these answers might relate to one another.
Last night I dreamt I was in my dad’s room at our old house. We were watching a TV series together that he’d wanted to binge for some time. I didn’t realize I was dreaming. All I could think about was staying with him because I knew if I left, I’d regret not spending even more time with him. This was my chance and I was going to take it. There wasn’t much that happened in the dream. Just the two of us watching this series that was strangely similar to the X-Men movies. I remember my mom came home at some point with groceries and we all worked together to put them up.
After I woke up I felt nostalgic rather than sad. There were days when my dad and I would sit around watching TV in his room. One show I won’t forget was Ghost Hunters. The show where people who worked for Roto-Rooters worked for TAPS as their second job and would hunt ghosts. My dad’s favorite character was Steve but mine was Tango and we would go back and forth over who was a better ghost hunter. Now, everytime I see a Roto-Rooter van, I have to point it out.
