Watching bad movies cleanses the soul and is a perfect way to procrastinate. Especially now that the most annoying people around you think it’s somehow Christmastime, some less-than-professional holiday films might be a good place to start. Remember that the true meaning of Christmas is always, somehow, American propaganda.
It’s cold, which means it’s cozy time!!! Blanket capes are IN, not wearing bulky socks is OUT. We need so badly to enter into our coziness era. A little hibernaysh never hurt anyone. Only thing is that lying in your bed begets more lying in your bed, so don’t forget to not lie in your bed sometimes. I know it’s evil, but it must be done.
Have you thought about getting into a fight recently? Don’t, obviously. That’s a bad idea. But maybe you have some energy that you need to let out. Remember that there are more productive ways to do this. Recently, I took up felting. It is by far my favorite fiber art because it allows me to stab things with impunity. Watch that needle, though.
Pursuing your passions is hard, even when it’s all you want to do, so anytime you have the energy for it you should be really grateful. Sometimes, there’s only one thing I want to do, but the only thing my brain will let me do is nothing. Save up your energy in a jar to use later. Also your leftover scallion bulbs. Water both well.
This is a week of meeting new people! Maybe you’re someone that people just come up to and tell things, and maybe that’s cool of them. Or maybe you can just go up to people and tell them things. Look up fun facts to get you started. Recently, I’ve been on LegoTok. Make friends by telling people about rare Lego brick colors! This definitely works.
Your realism-that’s-actually-just-pessimism is extra strong this week. Instead of telling people how they can be better, let them tell you! Open your heart and mind and ears, and allow yourself to be a shoulder to cry on, if you can handle that type of thing right now. People love your advice… when they ask for it.
While it is tempting this week to plan the wedding between you and whoever most recently gave you a gift, remember that there are more important things than material possessions. Have you been mesmerized by the beauty of the world recently? Ideas: walks, yodeling, lying face-down on the grass and breathing in that cool grass scent. Mesmerizing.
My favorite thing about Scorpios is how you will kinda drop stuff on me randomly. Facts about yourselves, sure, but also objects. My Scorpio friends are much like cats in that they will not stop knocking things onto my head. Please, guys, it’s enough already. I’m worried about getting a concussion. This week, stop doing that.
Your deadpan wit can sometimes come across as genuine frustration, but remember that communication is always key! Tell your friends how you feel about them through their love language. If they want acts of service or quality time, listen to them vent! If they want gifts, remind them coldly that there is no ethical consumption under capitalism!
Overwhelmed? Overworked? So, so sleepy? TOO BAD! Meanwhile, the world goes on. You are Sisyphus, and Moodle posts are your big rock: You think you’re done with them and then BAM! The next day there’s four more. And don’t even get me started on the emails. But you, like Sisyphus, will figure it out. And then do it all again tomorrow.
Technology is evil, obviously, but sometimes it can be useful. Like to update your calendar, for example, or to Google the etymology of words to kill time. Algorithms may be the work of the devil, but isn’t it nice when TikTok knows exactly what you want to see? In this world, we win and we lose, and we might as well be entertained while we lose.
Feeling weepy this week? Know at least that you’re not alone. Crying is really good for you, in moderation. Maybe not when it’s every day, but then at least you know that something is wrong and you are going to work to fix it. If not, you resign yourself to weepiness for the next few days. Which, I don’t know, maybe that’s just who you are.
