Lisa’s Week In Review: 5/20/19 — 5/26/19


Let’s see.  Last week started with my DVR exploding and me slightly burning my thumb while unplugging it.  I lost a total of 267 recorded programs.  That was bad.

However, I got a new DVR on Wednesday and the little burn mark on my thumb that had me so concerned has nearly faded away.  Even more importantly, I no longer have the obligation of watching those 267 recorded programs hanging over my head.  Sometimes, losing something is the only way that you can move forward.  So, that’s good.

This week is ending with me shadowbanned on twitter, which means that my tweets are currently not showing up in twitter searches.  Needless to say, this is very frustrating, especially since Twitter refuses to tell me what I did to upset their precious algorithm.  That’s bad.

However, shadowbans are only temporary and I have enough followers who are generous with their likes and retweets that not showing up in a twitter search isn’t going to massively effect the number of people who come across my reviews.  And, even more importantly, all of the drama over the twitter algorithm has reminded me of just what a first world problem social media truly is.  (I mean, seriously — go tell someone living in a war zone about how getting temporarily shadowbanned is the worst thing that ever happened to you.)  If nothing else, this has helped me to gain some sort of perspective and that’s a good thing.

Finally, I spent today and I’ll be spending most of tomorrow at Lake Texoma with the people who I love.  And you know what?  That’s the most important thing of all.  Above all else, there is love.

Have a good week, everyone.
