Busy Days Ahead

It’s only Tuesday… and already it’s been a crazy as all hell week. Not entirely sure why… but I suppose having upgrades of Epic over the weekend at the office didn’t help things. Working in healthcare in the IS department certainly does have its share of interesting and random encounters. Also… so does being the only one seemingly present on site on a Sunday when it seems that you were the only one who responded to a call for coverage. I could be incorrect about that, though, but it does feel like I was alone.

Let’s start With The Basics

Today, as Tuesdays go, was fairly normal. Got in on time… after accidentally waking up at 06:10, but that’s beside the point. Driver came to pick me up in a reasonable time, which is nice, because traffic sucked on the way in, and I still managed to pick up my coffee and a pastry with time to spare. I can’t say that’ s the way of it every day, though. And… it’s only a little afternoon. We’ll have to see how the rest of the day goes.

Changing Feelings Surrounding the COVID-19 Vaccine

I will admit... when any of the vaccines first came out, I had a seriously different outlook on them than I do now after getting my first Pfizer shot back on August 25th. While I don't agree with the way the media is portraying the vaccine, and I seriously sometimes wonder about the truth of a lot of the information we've been provided, I have to say... I agree with the incentive to be vaccinated. (in fact, I should have gone with rather than against my gut when it told me to vaccinate immediately. Instead, I waited for my family to make the move first.)

## Pfizer Adventures

On August 25th, as stated above, I ended up getting my first shot. While others have had negative reactions towards it... mine went pretty smoothly. Nothing but a bit of a muscle ache afterwards... will be fun ggetting the second one, for that seems to be the one that's not as smooth. (I hope that my body doesn't play tricks on me during that time.) I will be keeping you updated; next entry on this will be the 15th of September, when my appointment is scheduled. 

The biggest pile of advice I can give you? Keep the noise and Bullshit about this stuff out of your life; whether that's via social media, television, and so on. Focus on the facts, not the potential fictions surrounding them; I think that if I had taken my own advice and done this, then I wouldn't have waited as long, I would not have believed falsely the way that I did at first.  Either way, good luck, and keep an eye on your health.         

This week's saga continues ... on a Monday!

I’m going to have to start with the announcements, then. I think that as of this week, I’m deleting Facebook. I’m just watching all of the notifications pile up, and realizing just how little I care. I’d rather engagements to come from my own p laces on the web, not from other places like social media and other forms of centralized bullshit
