I downloaded the Tumblr app today and it’s nice to have it on my phone. This will likely mean random post binges until the novelty wears off. I feel as though today was an eventful day emotionally. I feel a little on edge and I’m not sure why. I feel as though my mind is heavy with unresolved things and unexpressed thoughts. The last few days have been a little drama heavy in my cyber world and now that I’ve distanced myself from the responsible party I feel a lot better.

Playground scuffles aren’t just a thing of the past. It’s interesting to see the craziness that ensues among so-called adults. Things like this invariably turn my thoughts towards Diego and what conflicts he will face. I don’t recall my parents intervening much during my childhood unless it was something grave but I was always welcome to discuss anything with them. As I got older I realized that by talking about things my mind processed them and they didn’t seem that dire anymore. Sometimes though it’s through those conversations with your support group that you find the courage you need to stand up for yourself.

I’ve often said that I hope to teach Diego how to think instead of what to think. Teaching a child to think and believe as you do isn’t education. It’s indoctrination. I don’t believe in it as it doesn’t serve a purpose in my opinion.

I’m not sure why I spend so much time thinking about bridges I don’t yet need to cross. I suppose I can’t help but think ahead and I’m constantly encouraged to do so by what I see on social media.
