Bag of Randomness for Friday, May 12, 2023

  • That Ukraine sticker sure does stand out.
  • DaughterGeeding played in her first softball playoff game last night.
  • DaughterGeeding lost her first softball playoff game last night.
  • If you are signed into Google Chrome, typing “” or “” into your browser will automatically bring up a new blank Google doc or spreadsheet
  • I pray that I can find opportunities to put me in positions to be around more people and make more friends, like genuine friendships.
  • I just found out Heather Brooke Hamilton (aka Heather B. Armstrong, aka died. Mental health is a serious struggle. She was one of the first to become “famous” for blogging (specifically, fired for blogging) and was an inspiration for this blog. It was easy to identify with her very open struggles with depression (and alcoholism, though I never had a problem with the latter). It’s one reason why I try to be so transparent, I learned it from reading her blog. She let her readers know her life wasn’t picture perfect and did so with a lot of wit and humor. People would often thank me for introducing her blog to them. She was only 47. One thing she did, that I wish I would have done, was write a monthly love letter to her daughter and post it on her site. The news of her death (rumored to be by suicide) has really bummed me out. If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. And, if that person lets you know they utilized the service, please don’t use it against them in court to keep them away from their kids.
  • Wind is the main source of UK electricity for the first time
  • My pastor’s wife during my teenage years still keeps tabs on me. She knows I’ve been struggling with depression and my concern there’s nothing to live for since I believe my best years are behind me. I like what she wrote and thought I’d share. The song, if you want to look it up, is actually by Brandon Lake, not Brandon Heath.
  • A message from Bono regarding his last Songs of Surrender performance. It made me smile for some reason. Probably because he’s simply Bono.
