I did not leave my apartment today except to check mail, do a bit of laundry, and get some soda. All day I have just sat around and tried to work past the roadblock I have on HIGH TREASON and failed. I know where I want the story to go, but it is the next page that is the killer. I forget which writer is credited with saying “Writing is staring at a blank sheet of paper until you sweat blood.” or something similar. I am horrible with quotes. Except the two sayings my Father taught me: 1) Unless you honestly look at both sides of an issue, you don’t have an opinion, you are a parrot; and 2) If your refrigerator is broken, changing the tires on your car won’t fix it. My Father was a wise man.
The manager of my apartment complex is coming by tomorrow to check the apartment for needed preventative maintenance and I am still, after all these weeks, unpacking and putting stuff away. Living alone slows down a lot of stuff I need to do because there is always too much stuff that needs to get done and that slows everything down. Plus, I am, for some reason, worried that I am going to have a serious hypoglycemia attack tomorrow morning. Why, I do not know. I have never felt this way before, hypoglycemia has always surprised me and hit me without warning or premonition.
My main computer is five years old and the hard drive is starting to make noise when starting up. So, even though I do not like the idea, I am going to have to get the latest version of Microsoft Office and install it on my secondary computer and then transfer all my files to that computer, which will become my primary computer. I have tried, in the past, to transfer files and use Open Office but the files get corrupted too often so that is now off the table forever. Office 2016 cost about $115+ and I will have to wait on other purchases to pay for this.
