My pretty and cool 2020 planner was basically a waste of money


Today is the last official day in my 2020 planner.  It finishes out the week so this last page has Friday, Saturday and Sunday on it before it ends (1/1, 1/2 and 1/3/2021).  

It's ironic to me that I normally don't buy planners, but last year I bought this one and was so happy with it because it was perfect.  I love the front cover -  I loved the way it was designed and printed as it had the days and dates laid out in a common sense way, it offered plenty of blank lines to write my daily schedule, tasks and errands and it laid out the weeks how I prefer them (Monday through Sunday instead of Sunday through Saturday).

I LOVED my 2020 planner.

And then 2020 actually came.

And the planner was pretty much a bust.  Because writing "stay home. social distance. sew masks" so many times gets old so you start to scribble things like 'watch for Amazon delivery' or 'make mashed potatoes' or even 'saw a possum in the back yard at 8:16 am'.

What a waste this planner was.



This morning I had read a quote by Theodore Dalrymple and thought it a good one to ponder over coffee.

Go ahead.  Ponder.

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

Theodore Dalrymple
