Wearing the required mask in public (sold in packs of 10 for $15.) Worst shopping experience ever! Walking through the store feeling as if I was suffocating. I had to leave before I had everything. Still do not feel right. Guess I will finish shopping in another county that does not require masks.

The masks are hell. I have to work 5 days a week with one of those things on. If I don't, I can't support myself. I'm going to try to make a belly-dancer style face veil. Like this one only with thicker material so the whiners don't complain:

I think I'll skip the little decorative coins though. They might be a bit annoying. I know it won't provide much protection, but I don't really care about that. I just care about being able to keep my job, work comfortably, be able to breathe, not have something tight and itchy on my face all day, and not get arrested. That sort of thing. The least restrictive covering that is still in compliance with the law.

Get over it. I have to wear one while doing a physically demanding factory job that I guarantee is worse than walking around shopping.

Two bag boys at the grocer's just hanging out and talking, maskless, and crowding the only exit from the shielded cash station. I'm thinking of carrying a tape measure and poking it at people closer than 2m.
I have almost gotten over the stress from a party next door on Saturday that replaced a nap with adrenalin for me.
I also got heat stress, but recognized it and fixed the issue.

I'm a 'shielded' patient during Covid. So being indoors today made me slightly stressed and edgy by 10am, as I hadn't been out for a few days. Despite the weather forecast not beng so good, i changed my plans and work for the day and instead cycled with it and my laptop to the park where I worked under the shelter of a tree. With a Thermos of hot tea and salad for lunch, I had a great time.

Trying to figure out what courses I want to take in the fall and whether or not I should apply for more jobs.

Hot humid weather and my dad's truck having no AC.
The mask I wore kept riding up over my eyes so I had trouble seeing.
Having to pay too much for kitty litter.
More people shopping than usual because yesterday was a holiday.
Ready to kill people by the time I finished checking out and paying for my groceries. :evil:

My mom accusing me and my NT sister for being lazy and not doing our parts of keeping our house clean.

My NT sister and I do our parts to keep our home clean & tidy, but our mom exhibits little to no satisfaction.

My mom being in an angry mood because I am keeping an eye on the family dog to make sure the family dog doesn't do anything without getting noticed.

This made my mom mad and now she is has threatened me with calling law enforcement on me just because I am not helping her complete yardwork.
