Tonight I need to scream! Plug up your ears – here goes! Yeeeeeeeeeooooowgrrrrrrrhmph!
I feel better now.
My life seems out of control these last couple of weeks – well, not really, but that’s the feeling I have. I’m so busy at work and it’s getting to me. I really really really really want to QUIT! But, I can’t. I won’t.
I can’t because that would be incredibly stupid and I’d regret it…. I know I’d really miss it, too. My issue is, I’m stretched too thin. I told my boss that if I ever tell her again that I feel like quitting, I’d stop what I’m doing and say the Serenity Prayer. And, then things might be better and then maybe I could chill and not want to quit.
But, I can’t even remember the darn prayer!
“Give me the serenity to (something) the things I cannot change and (something) when I know the difference?” But, that’s not it, it sounds wrong. I can’t think of how it goes, and I couldn’t remember it today either.
Here it is…. the part I need my lips to remember.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
And it’s Thursday night and I completely forgot my favorite of all time TV show was on! Project Runway – I only missed the first ten or so minutes. I saw Oliver fall and the running track. And, I saw enough of Bert, too. I am beginning to hope he’s booted off soon. He’s such a mean fart! So, he’s got talent – you have to be a nice person, too! Talent alone doesn’t do it!
And so, I had to watch Project Runway, which is why I am all over the place writing tonight – no coherent plan. Just stream of consciousness writing tonight – I’m about to run out of time, too, because if I don’t go to sleep by 11:00 tonight, I will regret it. Last night I was up until two! Dumb! That’s probably why I wanted to quit my job, come to think of it.
And, I read a little bit here and there about the probation issue today, and it infuriated me! It was a really big deal, we learned today, that Casey Anthony has already checked in to her Probation Officer. BOMBSHELL! Casey checked in! Stop the presses! Woo! That was really news worthy.
And tonight I read that one of the local Orlando stations, Tony Pipitone of WKMG, is asking, “Why is Casey Anthony getting special treatment?” That’s a brilliant question, isn’t it?
Tony, she is NOT getting special treatment! She is being protected from the people who want to murder her! A better question is, why are you giving her special treatment? Could it be because your station wants to sell advertising?
WKMG reporter, Tony Pipitone (who always seemed to be a fairly sane reporter), has gone off the deep end. He wants the Court to 1) reveal who Casey’s Probation Officer is, 2) release the documents related to probation, 3) provide where she’s reporting for probation, and 4) what classes she’s taking. (She’s taking online courses.)
First of all, if she’s enrolled in a college or university, information about her course work is off limits, protected by FERPA.
The Family Rights and Privacy Act – FERPA. This law protects the information of any student taking college or university classes. Look up FERPA, Tony.
Enough is enough. It’s over, she’s Not Guilty, said the jury. Respect it and think about why YOU are treating Casey Anthony any differently?
When the media plays these sensational games, it’s no longer journalism (if it ever was journalism in the first place), it’s hype, pure hype that could literally endanger a life!
I don’t understand this continuing madness over anything “Casey Anthony!”
It’s time to move on. It’s time to wish her well and let her go on her merry way.
I hope she is able to put the shattered pieces that are left of her life, back together and do something for herself. Enjoy her family – move away, live life, enjoy her parents.
Life is too short to not be happy.
To Tony, and all the other drooling reporters, repeat after me:
“Have a good life, Casey! Bye, bye.”
OMG – It’s 11:30! Good night!
