Free Write Week 21 (May 21 – May 27)

Welp, no good news on the job front his week. I didn’t get the job I interviewed with last week and Brandy hasn’t heard back from her interviews either. We’re also still waiting for unemployment to get their crap together. Maybe next week, I’ll have some better news in this department.

I spent some time listening to The Dale Jr Download podcast, which I’ve enjoyed a lot. I was never a huge Junior fan, but he interviews some legends of NASCAR and does a great job at it. I’ve struggled finding podcasts I can tolerate lately, but this has been a great one.

I also discovered that MRN has podcast versions of old NASCAR races. I grew up watching NASCAR all the time and if we were traveling or out shopping, we always had MRN on and was listening to the race. I’ll never forget sitting in the back of our van listening to Michael Waltrip win 1996 Winston. Those broadcasters were amazing at painting an incredible picture of what was happening on the track and for background noise, it’s been wonderful listening to these old races while at work.

I watched the final episode of season one of Debris, which introduced a ton of questions. Then NBC cancelled it. You’d think I would have learned my lesson about watching network sci-fi. I think from now on, I’m not going to invest into shows like that until after they’ve been renewed. It’s just not worth the frustration and quite honestly, it ends up being a waste of time. It was like reading 75% of a book.

I also caught up on the final episodes of The Conners. I’m hoping the show improves a bit next season. I feel like the production during COVID mixed up the pacing and storytelling and it felt a bit disjointed. The previous season was more solid and coherent. Although, I’ve loved seeing Lecy Goranson really coming into her own and steal every scene that she is in.

I’m thrilled to have a three day weekend this weekend. I’m hoping to catch up on some rest, do some job applying, watch a little racing, watch some AEW, play a little SRX Racing, and make the best of this extended time off.
