Proof that I'm not a good writer

I got an ice pop out of the freezer and put it on my desk while I typed up a suggestion for LJ in the suggestions community. Once I was finally satisfied with the wording and submitted, I looked over at my ice pop and it was melted. :(

I put it back in the freezer to refreeze it and got another one for the time being.

Nah, that's not proof you're not a good writer. It's just proof that ice pops should be eaten right away :-D

Well, it's proof it takes me quite a while to get the wording of anything right.

I did get a slightly twisted ice pop today though because of it. :)

I tend to re-write anything I post that's longer than a couple of sentences - to get the wording right, to clear up possible misunderstandings, to clear up errors that are left over from previous edits... I tend to view that as a good thing :)

I think the best thing about communicating via writing is that you can re-read what you're saying and edit it before anyone else sees it!

Yeah, I see it as a good thing too, but it bugs me how many times I end up having to rewrite some things, especially if someone still misunderstands it.

In fact, for the "An ordered list of problems/issues involved" field in my suggestion, I put "Thought up by someone who has a habit of not explaining things well the first time".

I'm depressed. Because the world is ending and there has not been ANY proof that things will ever get better. I'm unable to think about anything except the fact that the world is ending, no matter how hard I try

I hate, hate, hate, HATE the term "social distancing". And being reminded of the coronavirus in any other way.

That's my entire personality now. And it will be until our world is back to normal.

Please read this entry before you comment on ANY entry in my journal about the coronavirus: https://matt1993.livejournal.com/373852.html

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you still have to wear them.

    I thought I told you that I DO wear a mask whenever I am required to or am told to. Why are you acting like I don't?…

    Looking back at the Spanish Flu pandemic, it obviously wasn't like that forever. I don't know if people had problems with being able to adjust.

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you…

    well before the pandemic, youre supposed to wash your hands before you eat, and after youve been to the toilet. Or if youve got something on your hands. Thats all.

    With the pandemic, its an add on…

    Even before this pandemic I've tried to wash my hands whenever I needed to - but I've never been sure if I'm doing so well enough or often enough. :(

    but this is now our new normal.

    As I said to arcadia30 above, I'm tired of hearing "new normal" because it implies that it will be like this forever and/or that I'm a bad person for being unable to…
