How many of you pronounce eSpecially as eXpecially?
Please stop. Learn to say the word properly.
And while we’re at it, it’s eSpresso, not eXpresso. ☕ 😀
I don’t know what made me hypersensitive to the pronounciation of certain words recently, but the *eSpecially/eXpecially* thing has now surfaced several times by a YouTube tarot reader and it annoyed me so much I stopped listening to her. It also reminded me of a high school friend who went on to study pharmacology and earned herself a PhD who still says eXpecially and I’m just… I don’t understand it.
Then I was listening to another YouTube video in which a guy was providing instructions on meditation practices and he said eXpecially and I couldn’t continue.
Note to self: do not let external things over which I have no control bug me.
As you can see, today I’m in a bit of a precautious mood. I didn’t sleep well, tried meditation, couldn’t find the blindfold I put on my bedside table, became more agitated, finally lit a candle, closed my eyes, tried meditating again but it wasn’t to be. My brain is in overload and I was fidgety, itchy, uncomfortable and, well, irritated. 🙄
Which incidentally is exactly the time meditation is most helpful.
So to turn things around I decided to do this:
- Finish my coffee
- Have another one with my mom and watch the birds struggle with this excessively cold, wet spring through the big bay window
- Go work out and try not to kill myself (it’s been almost 3 weeks since I exercised – I’m finally completely over my cold – I never tested as covid but I felt crappy nonetheless)
- Get ready to take Mom to an appointment
- Get ready for an online class I signed up at 1 pm
- Try not to let anything else irritate me
Later in the afternoon, I will reattempt a meditation. I loaded a new app and would like to test it out.
Meanwhile, I have several draft posts written with much more interesting content than this drivel. I hope to get back on track with my work side of my business as well. I have some jewelry orders to fill, and some branding to finish. Check out my Instagram and let me know what you think of my branding efforts.
I need to decompress. Know what I mean? Not let stupid shit irritate me. 😐
Thank you for reading my post. See you in the comments!
