Song: Don't Freak (2021)
Artist: The Aces
How fitting is that the SOD for my long-awaited return to blogging is titled "Don't Freak" when literally all I do is freak out and work myself into panics while doubting and second-guessing myself and wtf I'm doing with my life?! despite being a fantastic undiscovered blogger (you can teach proper formatting, but you can't teach my voice!) who created the most popular URI-based Twitter account from 2012-2014! I honestly do apologize to the loyal DOL readers who have missed me since last Monday. Since I'm all about being transparent with you guys, I'll let ya know what was up.
Tuesday after work, I was on the verge of death level exhausted and knew blogging wasn't in the cards. Since I felt guilty about not writing after work/school (depending on how you look at it), I went to my Grandma's to visit, which almost immediately turned into me napping. I ended up passing out on her covered couch while she watched some random 1940s movie on TCM for the 800th time.
Then on Wednesday, I was scheduled to have virtual therapy for the first time in almost a month. I didn't want to have a session during April Break, then the week after, she had to reschedule, and since I'm a pushover, I just took whatever opening was first offered to me, which just happened to be on Cinco de Mayo. I have tried to blog before therapy before in similar situations, but with the amount of time I had between getting home and my session, I opted to just relax and think about what I wanted to talk about in our sess. Then I get a text at 5:28 P.M. that she needed to reschedule due to a family emergency. I get it, that happens, but it rubs me the wrong way that she can cancel with 120 seconds notice with zero penalties, and I have to pay $40 if I opt out with less than 24 hours notice.
Then Thursday, I had my rescheduled virtual therapy session after 6 P.M., and I actually tried to blog beforehand, but Weebly was cock blocking my dreams. I even posted a SOD before realizing Weebly was down.
Over the weekend and Monday, I was busy doing various activities with my family, but the boi is back! Just like The Aces!!! Under My Influence was one of my favorite albums of 2020, and now the girls are back with more new music in "Don't Freak." I fucking love this band; they deserve to be much more commercially successful!
