On the corner of 1st N.W. and High Street. This is at the back of the building taken from the lot where the apartment building burned down. Not only did I see that the building seems to be in rough shape, but the weeds growing out of the windows base game me a smile. Life will hang in there no matter what. It shows just how soon the city would be reclaimed if we where to vanish.

Sound of Freedom (2023) IMDB 7.7/10 Me 8/10 This is a movie about a man who used to work for the FBI catching child predator's online. He eventually turns vigilante and ends up saving hundreds of children from human trafficking. To be honest this ripped my heart out. I have the desire to see people who do this kind of thing to children die screaming in pain. So I was both enraged and crying my eyes out for most of the movie. Serious warning, if you are triggered by sexual abuse or child abuse, this movie WILL trigger you. The story is very realistic in it's presentation and it makes it all too real at times. The film noir style that a lot of scenes the children are in ads to the terror of what you know they are feeling. This is NOT even close to a family movie and if you have kids, just don't let them watch this. This is based on a true story BTW. The man risked his life many times to do what he did.

Shower. Not a bath, a shower. Use water as hot or cold as you like. You don’t even need to wash. Just get in under the water and let it run over you for a while. Sit on the floor if you got to. Put on clean, comfortable clothes. Put on your favorite underwear. Those ridiculous boxers you bought last Christmas with candy cane hearts on the butt? Put them on. Drink cold water. Use ice. If you want, add some mint or lemon for an extra boost. Clean something. Doesn’t have to be anything big. Organize one drawer of a desk. Wash five dirty dishes. Do a load of laundry. Scrub the bathroom sink. Blast music. Listen to something upbeat and loud, something that’s got lots of energy. Sing to it, dance to it, even if you suck at both. Make food. Don’t just grab a granola bar to munch. Take the time and make food. Even if it’s ramen. Add something special to it, like a soft boiled egg or some veggies. Prepare food, it tastes way better, and you’ll feel like you accomplished
In 2020 I intend to have none of the following things until July 1: Pizza. Pop (Example: Coke, Pepsi). Sugary snacks. Hard booze (wine is OK in moderation). Beer. Limited to 2 bags of chips a week. No fast food like burgers or fries. As well New Years Eve I'll be not drinking at all. Basically stick to the veggie diet for 6 months. Coffee and Tea is OK of course - can't live without them. Only animal products I will be having are cheese, eggs and chicken when I can get them for cheep or free. So today is going to be my last drunk for a some time, unless I forget or fall off the wagon.
Doing my expenses for the month so far. After the big payment on my CC and getting some stuff with the extra money I had in the bank, I have at this exact moment in time $573.36 in the bank. After I put extra on the card later I will have $71.36 left to play with if needed and I will be able to get all the stuff I need with my credit card. I split my Amazon into 2 entries - one the stuff I need and one the stuff I want.
