In 2015, my ex-wife wanted to get back together with me (in spite of her being remarried and me being with Kimberly for two plus years) and every single part of me knew it was a bad idea except the tiny, very tiny part of me that wanted to if only to show her how much better I've gotten at sex.

I forgot that I hadn't finished the latest season of Bojack Horseman, so it's been fun watching 'new' episodes over my lunch hour.

I'm shying away from hard and fast resolutions this year but am hoping to travel to at least two new places (via plane) and also to get more educated on so very many things.  I firmly believe that so much hatred and discrimination is founded in ignorance.  I lean way, way to the left on most issues but most of the media I consume is pretty white and pretty hetero and pretty male.  I'm in a pretty comfy bubble related to a lot of social issues.  Meanwhile, life's about to get (and continue to get) shittier and shittier for a lot of people who aren't me.  The more educated I can become (and the more listening and believe I can do about these situations), the better place I'll be in to call shit out and try to make shit better.

I also want to be able to consistenly beat my dad at ping pong.  Dude's still got moves.

Haha once in awhile I wonder what it would be like to hook up with my first boyfriend. We were both so young and so inexperienced and so clueless. I wouldn't actually do it though.

Where are you thinking about traveling?

She was my first, so one would hope things would be better now. Something kinda endearing about the clumsiness of it all I guess.

Hoping to take a trip to Springfield, Missouri where my best friend and his family live.

Looks like I'll be back in Hawaii for work in the spring, so maybe take a detour on the way there or back in California if the schedule works out.

Have you ever done the ,a href="https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/user/agg/blindspot/indexrk.htm">Implicit Bias Test? It's a good thing to point people toward to nudge them out of their bubbles and help them understand that racism is structural, not about the n-word or outright saying that black people aren't as good as white people.

Yes! Thank for posting the link - I'd taken it before but didn't save the URL.

I just retook and "Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for European American children compared to African American children."

I need to face what I need to change.

Did she say WHY she wanted to get back together? I've always been fascinated when people get back with exes after divorces, especially multiple times.

I changed two previous entries so they're visible (but still friends-locked) that talk about it. Lemme know if you have any questions - certainly threw me for a loop!
