I would be in great need of socialization. I work from home because I refuse to deal with the public anymore. My outings are few, limited to shopping trips, therapy and the laundromat. That's pretty much it and I have nothing to do most days but work because I no longer have the funds to indulge in the luxury of a day off. I haven't even took the kid to a fast food place since summer started because of a lack of funds.

Reasons Behind No Socialization
We haven't even been to the free parks in the area because of gas prices. As I write this the cheapest listing for gas I can see is $3.07. Paying by text will make that $3.04 a gallon. We currently only have therapy but that's enough with the income in the summer going down. I plan to start putting some money aside when school starts so I can go socialize during school and take the baby to socialize after school or rather on weekends when work and homework permit.

That's a lot of money for gas, but I am determined to socialize more. I feel as if the walls are closing in on me and days run together. I need to take my socialization away from social media if my daughter is ever going to learn to socialize. Actually she craves socialization which is both good and bad in a way. It's good for her and bad for me.

Where to go?

I don't particularly care for bars, but I could go out to eat. I don't like bars, and I don't have the money to spend in them which kind of helps to avoid them. I can't think of a single thing that I'd like to do other than go to a movie. I guess I'll start by popping some popcorn and watching a few at home at night while reruns and shows I don't watch are on.

Well, I'm off to figure out something to do for fun around here. It's been a long time since I had fun, I have to get back to it.

What do you do for fun? Does your budget allow room to leave the house for something other than the regular routine?

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
