Good morning, everyone! I’m on twitter because I need to get more radio station listeners. I figure twitter is a very good way to publicize. I don’t think Facebook works very well. Twitter seems to get the attention of many people very quickly, probably people who think similarly. It’s also a good way to find people I don’t know who don’t know my contacts.
When I first got on twitter it was 2013. I did it on a whim. I didn’t realize that it would do really great things. For the most part, it didn’t. However, one incredible thing happened. I found Mad in America. I had never known about this website. I had never known about this community. Most important, I had never known anyone else had been abused in a hospital.
Besides MIA, I didnt have much use for twitter. Eventually I got off because I was bullied on there. in private messages mostly.
I am now back on twitter to publicize the radio station. I am disgusted that there have been so few listens. When it comes to art, those of you who are my friends actually care about that my creations. Those of you that don’t care, I as far as I am concerned, aren’t my friends.
Some people I have repeatedly sent links to and they don’t even bother. I put a lot of effort into my art and I wonder why people don’t even care. I figure I better trim down my friends list because I don’t want friends that don’t care. Even when I was starving to death, I cared about my friends’ art. I let them know I cared. I read their books, I bought their books. I went to art shows, I supported them in many ways. It’s too bad they didn’t appreciate it, nor reciprocate. That’s why I got new friends!
Good morning! I have finally broken down and am using a dictation application. I have never done this before so successfully, and it’s working so well that I fear I will become spoiled rotten by this technology! I can’t think of another person as spoiled except for Puzzle.
In case you are wondering. My two braids just fine. I didn’t have any trouble making them, except that it took twice as long to make two braids than it takes to make one. For your information, I do not use a mirror when I make my braids. I never have.
In fact, I don’t have much use for a mirror. People laugh but the truth is my mirror is a little bit too high up on the wall for my height.
The tape on my glasses that holds them together is holding up fine and my glasses have not fallen apart since I put the tape on them. I purchased vision insurance. Today, I plan to call the vision insurance company to find out when the insurance kicks in. It looks like contact lenses will also be covered. However, my guess is that I will still not be able to see very well no matter what type of visual machinery I use. People assume that because I wear glasses, I can see twenty twenty and this is simply not true. If I could see twenty twenty, I’d be typing right now.
I have rats in my apartment. I’m not sure what to do about it. I think the rat situation is just getting worse and worse. If I might even phone the town. I don’t know what else to do.
Whoever out there feels like being truly supportive and helpful, kindly listen to my radio broadcast from Tuesday evening. Here it is in archive:
Friends support friends. Friends support artists by paying attention to their art. I don’t think I am askng too much.
I have put immense effort into the broadcast and I was heartbroken tonight to see ZERO listens. Kinda shocked too because that’s the old life. Not now.
I have been sending out the usual job applications. I am not holding my breath except to say that even the organizations that claim they’re moral and upstanding definitely are discriminatory in their hiring practices. I would love to believe…this one is different. But almost all organizations discriminate.
Today I am making two braids instead of my usual one braid, for an “occasion.” I’ll let you know if I’m successful at it. Life gets shorter and faster as we age.
Stay tuned. More radio too to come.
