Bad Brain Day aka feedback loop of DOOM

Image
I am having a bad brain day. Like, a seriously bad brain day and at first I was going to type all this out and put it on FB like usual but then I remembered that I have this handy dandy blog and that I haven't shared shit to it since like November so instead of posting a long diatribe there, I figured I'd post it here and then if anyone is actually inclined to read my ramblings, they can do it here.
So onto the point of this ramble
You know those days when your brain is being a total asshole to you? The days when your brain relentlessly reminds you of everything that is wrong or bad in you or your life at the time and you get caught up in the feedback loop of DOOM?

I am going to use a star system on a scale of 1-5, with 1 = terrible and I threw it out to a 5 = will buy again

My goal is to do a new entry every Sunday evening with the previous weeks products and reviews. Hopefully …

A quote a day for 2017 - XXIX

“When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong - faster and faster and faster.
