January 14, 2017 (Tosh's Diary)
January 14, 2017
I haven’t written in my journal for this past week, due to a sense of depression. When this cloud enters my brain, my body turns itself off. I think what’s causing the mood is the failure of raising money to build the Trump statue at the Silver Lake Meadow. Not only have I failed in getting funding (so far), but also it seems that the city has, at this time, ignored my desire to place such a statue on their premise, which is the park.
I even attempted to approach foundations from Russia to seek out funding. Oddly enough, I couldn’t find any specific charities that are Trump supporters. I have read in the newspapers and online that there seems to be a bent towards the view that Trump would be good for Russia, but finding a particular organization is tough. And on top of that, I think I’m coming down with the common cold.
To fight the cold, I have been drinking honey with lemon and ginger none stop. It cuts through the mucus in my throat quite well, but I don’t think it’s going to help my singing career. Which is a non-starter because I don’t even have a career. In anything. It’s chilly outside, but I’ll go to the library on Fifth and Flower to investigate non-profit foundations that give money to the arts. The library is five miles away from my house. On a good day, I walk to the library, but since I'm not feeling so hot, I'll either take an LYFT ($8.75) or a bus ($1.75). Logic says the bus, but I don't think I can deal with people today. I tend to be the fellow that likes to sit by the aisle and spread my legs out. I never feel comfortable when someone comes on the bus and wants to sit by me. Even when the bus is full and the only seat available is the one next to mine. I rather he or she stand. First come first dibs on the seat!
