JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 03.13.21
I don’t know…maybe the pandemic is getting to me.
Heck, it should be getting to me at this point.
But, I’ve been spoiling for a fight all week.
The ignorance of people online is really getting to me.
They hid behind the thin veil of their screen, thinking it’s ok to say whatever they want to whomever they want.
That’s weak to me.
Be a better person.
Would you say it to their face? No? Then don’t send it out into the world.
Then don’t be bruised when someone comes back at you (like me).
In other news, I’m making plans.
Some big, some small.
Things to shut down. Things to start up.
Where do we go from here?

From the JSP archives: This week, many people were looking back to the start of the pandemic. So, here’s my post from around this time a year ago, March 14, 2020. That week was the last time I saw my parents, too. Mom’s gotten her vaccine, I hope to get mine soon.

I agree with the thoughts on the people hiding behind screens and saying things that they don’t want to own. I don’t like people spreading false information and try to ignore them. It still infuriates me even when I’m trying to ignore them.
Good luck with your plans. I see lots of plans being made that affect me. Some are family and some are work. Some are small and others are huge. Some are short term (a few days out) and others are a year plus. My plan is to accommodate all of them as best I can. One plan is a second vaccine shot in a little over a week. Another plan is a trip to see a son and daughter-in-law in Japan in about 10 to 14 months, depending upon how the pandemic is going.
Have a good week and don’t let the people on the Internet get to you.
That Japan trip definitely is one to look forward to! I was just revisiting some of my Tokyo photos earlier this week. Good luck with the send jab, too! Hope the side effects are minimal. I’m on the list but not until mid-summer, looks like.
