One Thousand Word Challenge 179: Cold in the Morning

It’s cold and it’s the morning but I feel okay. Going to see how quickly I can get this done but I imagine that I’ll slow down at some point and then I’ll think more about what I’m writing and let the whole stream thing happen and the writing will then be more organic.

It’s a nice day outside, I’m inside and I’m writing this and it comes to you in the form of words written in a format that allows for visual perception and understanding. Signals translate things to an understandable state and all that other stuff, but I just keep on going and mash out the words as quickly as I can.

It’s a bit cold and it’s warming up and it is nice. It is a nice day and I like that it already feels nice. There’s some relaxing music playing and I’m just mashing this out and soon I will need to get into the meat of things as it also is a work day so soon I must get into handling obligation and responsibility and then hope the rest of the day just flows on by. Maybe it will and maybe it won’t, but what will happen is that I will sit here and appreciate the sunlight for a little bit longer.

Hopefully it is not too cold and I get to warm up a bit.

I think that the tree outside my window is starting to grow leaves again and that will create a nice patch of shade. It has been a bit leafless as of late as apparently the tree does not like too much rain; something we’ve been receiving an abundance of. Today is sunny and it seems that the rain has let up for the time being so I hope things stay that way, if only for a short period of time.

We probably need more rain but we need more in inland areas that are struggling from drought and subsequent dryness.

We need a lot of things.

I don’t know how effective the rainfall we’ve received has been in terms of providing relief from drought, but I do know that a lot of it seems to have been coastal thus far, and whilst that is sort of a good thing, it’s also a bit bad. Sure, dams are more full now and some places are looking greener, but there also has come a lot of damage and a lot of pain.

I should clarify that it’s not good that a lot of the rain seems to have mostly been coastal, but rather that it is good that coastal areas have received a lot of rain. that said, we’ve certainly received too much rain in coastal areas and so subsequent damage has caused a lot of problems for a lot of people.

There are still people trying to recover from the bushfires we had a few years ago and the rainfall we’ve had certainly has not helped there.

When our recent federal election happened, I imagine that a lot of people let out a sigh of relief when they saw the result, but there still is a lot of work that needs to be done. I’m not saying that the new leading party isn’t doing enough; I’m saying that, even though early actions seem promising, we still need to see a lot more. There still is relief aid required for people affected by bushfires and floods and so the sooner they receive help, the better. The sooner we help them out the sooner they can be in a stronger position to live a better life and the sooner they will get there.

I don’t really know what else to say about this. There are a lot of issues that need to be dealt with and it can be difficult to work out which one first, but I feel that people who have been neglected need to be helped sooner rather than later.

I also feel pretty strongly about setting up some heavy protection against damaging the environment, as well as some heavy and enforceable penalties against those that continue to actively do so.

There are a lot of things I think and putting them in really simple terms is probably not the best thing to do as these require some deeper digging, but I feel that for now that will be enough.

So I sit here and I enjoy the sun a little bit. It’s still cold but it is getting warmer and that is a nice thing for now. Might not be later, but for now it is nice as it means that I operate that little bit quicker than I was earlier.

I was pretty sure that I wasn’t going to mash out a lot of words quickly and I was right about that, but I do feel that I should’ve given it a better go. Writing at the speed that I currently am writing at is fine and all, but it is not what I wanted to do. Oh well. Such is life and all that other stuff. I’m still writing and I’m getting things across and if I can get them across in a way that makes sense, then I feel that I’ve achieved something at the very least. Sure, it’s a small thing but you can get big things from small things and so… yeah.

I think I need to rebuild on these challenges as I’ve gone too far into “trying to write as quickly as possible” and as such I’m not getting as much of the stream-of-consciousness writing out. I need to slow down a bit more and then get back up to speed once things are better balanced, but there are other things to worry about out there and so I should work on doing what I can with those other things.

For now though it’s a work day and so I’ve got to do the work I’ve got to do for the day.

The time it took to write one thousand words: 13:14:69

Wrote this this morning and then didn’t do anything.
Ended up being a busier day than I had expected.

I feel that there are some things here quite worth talking about but overall not sticking to one thing and exploring it further harmed the writing.

Written at home.
