I don’t really feel much like writing on this blog anymore. That’s not to say I won’t, but I just don’t feel like it.
The past few months have been terrible. I have a hard time describing exactly how bad they’ve been. I am lucky because I still have a job and I haven’t yet been negatively impacted financially. But the world around me seems to be burning. First we start with a deadly virus that doesn’t seem to be going away. Then, the large cities in my country start burning because idiots are rioting. Y’know, if you want to call burning buildings down, pointing lasers, throwing frozen water bottles, etc., at cops and other folks “peaceful protesting” then just go the hell away. Seriously. I don’t want you here. There are peaceful protestors, but there are rioters too, and I’m sick and tired of the rioting and other stupid behavior.
I have been continuing to do Japanese lessons, but I just don’t feel it anymore. It feels like I’m fiddling while Rome burns. What’s the point when the world is falling down around me?
But you know what the most important thing to do right now, is, and why I am forcing this post out? The most important thing to do is speak. I’m just not sure that Japanese is the right topic to speak about right now. There are far too many other, more important things to address in the world right now. The coronavirus. Rioting. Persecution of Christians, right here in the States. An election in a few months between a mentally compromised nearly octogenarian and probably our last best hope for keeping our country. And to be clear, when I say “mentally compromised nearly octogenarian”, I’m not talking about Trump.
I have to speak. I must speak. It is vitally important that I speak. But not here. Not those topics. This place is for Japanese. And who cares about Japanese anymore?
If you don’t like this post, unsubscribe. I won’t make a habit of posts like this here. When I have something to say about Japanese, it goes here. But I am just having a hard time staying silent anymore. There’s too much going on and I can’t cope otherwise.
