My dad is home from the hospital. Please continue to pray for him.
The other day I got an email from the place where I submitted my poetry. It was a rejection. Now, I’m looking for the next place to submit writing.
I wrote a few poems last night. I haven’t been writing as much as I once was. I don’t know if it is the stress from what’s going on or what, but I’m sure it’s temporary. And it felt good to write a few poems. I always feel good after writing. I just want to be able to have time to write on my laptop. I hope to get back to writing on my laptop for at least a little bit every day. And I’m sure I will.
I finished Octodad: Dadliest Catch about a week ago. I’m still thinking about it. It is such a fun and original game. I plan on writing a post about it once I get the chance.
It still makes me sad to think Chyna is gone. I’ve read lots of tributes, lots of articles and some have even defended the way WWE has treated her, the way they’ve snubbed her over the years.
And I know Chyna had problems. I know she was addicted to drugs and alcohol. I’ve read her book so I know about her childhood and her relationship with her family. I also know what went on with the WWE, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. I’ve been into wrestling for years. I know the stuff that goes on behind the scenes. Wrestlers aren’t always treated well. Some rivalries are actually real. And some are pushed out for whatever reason. Not because they actually did anything, but because someone higher up wanted them out.
Chyna had her problems. She said things she shouldn’t have. But WWE is not some innocent victim. And I can’t understand anyone defending them for their treatment of Chyna and not putting her into the Hall of Fame. Some think it is because she has done pornography. I think that it could be a factor, but it would also be highly hypocritical of WWE if it is actually a factor in why they’ve snubbed her. A number of female wrestlers posed for Playboy while working for the WWE. And it was always highly celebrated by the WWE when one of their female wrestlers have posed for Playboy.
WWE may actually put Chyna into the Hall of Fame now, but I feel it’s too late. All she wanted was to be recognized for all she achieved. She really wanted that. And she wanted to patch things up with the WWE. Now that she has passed is when they want to recognize her and give her credit for all that she has done. I just don’t think it’s right. It makes me sad that they wouldn’t give that to her while she was alive.
I’m still waiting for some craft supplies to come in the mail. Once they do, I’m going to make a new bracelet to sell.
While I am typing this entry, I am listening to the Horror Show with Brian Keene. It is a free podcast and there is a new episode every week. I listened for the first time last week. I couldn’t listen before because my old laptop would have overheated. Really happy that I can listen now.
Besides all of that, I have just been working online. And searching for more ways to make money.
I admit to feeling some stress, but it hasn’t been that bad lately. I have actually been feeling pretty good and positive.
I think I’ll stop this post here and I will try to post again soon. I want to post about Octodad and some other stuff so I will try to soon.
