If you're looking for something to write about over the weekend take a look below for the options and if you feel like doing a post use my community, THE WEEKEND. If you follow the rules below you'll be eligible for some possible rewards on Monday and might get called out as a top post of the week.

Ready to lock this in. You still came through sir. Well done and thank you. I hope you are getting stronger and better?

I'm wondering about your weekend... and are you feeling better.

I hope you are.

Nah, still feeling pretty bad. I'm hoping I feel better by Monday though. I'll work from home until the quarantine period is over, but haven't been able to concentrate much so far so haven't worked.

Sorry to hear that.... and hope you are feeling better real soon.

Make sure you stay hydrated no matter what. When the first round came out, my cousin defied all the sane advice and kept going out and doing whatever she wanted. Right before that first Christmas of covid, she got really sick... REALLY sick and couldn't do anything for several weeks. Believe me when I tell you she is a strong, stubborn, high energy person, so she is no sissy and it took her down hard. Finally she told her friend she wanted him to take her to the hospital the next day, she was ready. He decided she had not drank enough fluids, so every couple hours and all through the night, he got up p and made her drink water and gatorade. By the next day, she was not well, but markedly better, so she never went to the hospital. I mean, she had been in touch with her doctor through it all, but she was ready to be admitted. So.... you probably already are, but if not, make sure, no matter even if you don't feel like it, to take in all the fluids you can.

Yes, yes,,, ,Mother says so ! 😂

Hey there, yeah hydration is my thing usually, 3-4 litres of water a day (almost a gallon) and I'm drinking even more now. I feel so thirsty it's difficult not to. I learned (really early in life) the importance of hydration and it's stuck with me, and I don't mean coffee, sodas and the like...I mean clear water. OK, sometimes I drop a cold-infusion tea bag in too. :)

I'm ok Jace, I mean I'll not die or anything, but I'm not the sort of man who likes to be collared, and not having any sort of freedom is hard for me these days, even the simple freedom of sleeping well. I'll live though and won't make mistakes like your cousin.

Thanks for commenting, I appreciate it. I'll admit to feeling grumpy as fuck all the time, it's even come out on Hive in places in the last few days which probably won't go well for me in the future, but maybe those who bother to read my posts will realise I'm not all that well and understand? (Probably not.) I had thought of just disappearing, but, in truth, I get enjoyment from it so figured when I'm not feeling so good that might be a good thing?

Anyway, thanks.

Tell us about something you know a lot about.

A lot? Honestly? There is no such thing. Even if I would know 10 000x more about something than what I currently know, I still would not say that I know a lot about it.

The more I know about something, the less I feel I know about it.

Fair enough, however so think everyone else knows a lot about something, let me list some of some of those things:

  • How they feel about themselves
  • Love and relationships
  • Adversity and challenges
  • Their own family
  • Their thoughts and opinions
  • Their job function
  • Their personal history
  • Their country

There's a millions things if one has the capacity to think of them. So, I totally disagree with you saying there is no such thing as knowing a lot. Although, it's your prerogative to say it and feel that you don't know much about anything of course.

Their own family

It is complicated. I thought that I know my brother well. We grew up together, we lived together for 24 years. I thought that he is responsible and trustworthy. But he betrayed me in the middle of 2018. You may think that you know a lot about your family. Life can prove anytime that you do not.

Their thoughts and opinions

Everyone have these. Even if they do not actually know anything about the thing(s) they form their opinion(s) about. People often express opinion and views about something (or someone) without actually knowing it (him/her).

I don't know how to reply.

You've taken what was a simple writing prompt and turned it into something, well, negative and depressing. Fortunately those who chose to enter the concept have not done the same.

well, negative and depressing.

But still true. This is a part of life. Is it forbidden to talk about it? You mention these two things as if they would be forbidden. I am willing to honestly talk about it with open heart.

They're not forbidden and I find it completely and totally absurd that you suggest it. I haven't got time for it right now though, I have my own problems and concerns, as does everyone else in the world, so taking on your negativity is not something I'm inclined to do, and in denying your negativity I find positivity.

Hi @xplosive

You know I have also been betrayed by family but I have moved past that and now focus my time on doing better, improving myself and learning from my mistakes of which I admit I've made many, but I still try to find a glimmer of hope in each day.

Galen has been feeling really sick having come down with Covid19 and yet, he's STILL trying to help you and yet, you cannot even come up with one thing that you are passionate about? Something that makes you feel alive? I suffer from depression and it's taken it's toll on me, but I've found ways to manage my illness and still live a semblance of life. It is possible, but you need to want to do it. What are you doing in your life to improve your own situation?

Dwelling on people that have done you wrong is never going to be useful to move you forward, let go of that baggage. It will feel amazing once you do. Trust me.

Then look towards the future and decide what you want it to look like, make a plan even if it's only with small strides at first. There are loads of people on Hive in similar financial situations to you and are open about it, but they also see there are still opportunities ahead of them to make tomorrow a bit better.

you cannot even come up with one thing that you are passionate about? Something that makes you feel alive?

Yes. I can. My Harris's hawk and the amateur radio.

What are you doing in your life to improve your own situation?

It is improved in the recent past. Nowadays financially I am fine. Maybe I should let go the past somehow.

There are loads of people on Hive in similar financial situations to you

I am financially fine nowadays. The emotional part is another story. I live alone with my Harris's hawk. I miss my mother, who passed away in 2017. I miss my brother, who changed a lot, and moved to live in another village in 2018.

Every weekend is always accompanied with interesting topics from the weekend community.
I love to see it.

Hey Galen;
It's been a few weeks since I've put together a W/E Prompt post - and to be honest, I think I've kind of missed the chance to reflect. I really enjoyed the chance this week to reflect on conflict.

Hope you're well, Tim

Great topics to talk about.

Another beautiful weekend is here, saying Good morning to every member of the community from 🇳🇬.

Great topics for the weekend.

Another week with great topics sir 😁 I'm excited what people will choose and write about. I haven't decided which of these to choose but it will be fun ☺️

All the topics are very well proposed, I ride the train to see which one I select, greetings from this dreamy Caribbean @galenkp


Good morning my fraternal friend, @galenkp how are your health, I read that you were indisposed and recovering, I send you my wishes for your health, peace and well-being for your life.

Here in the Caribbean, South America, night falls.

I have Covid 19 and am not very well. Don't worry though, if I die I left all my crypto to you. 😊

OMG my friend, if you are going to make it, I was in serious trouble, so your inheritance will be well protected by yourself because you still have a lot of good and great things to do in your life with Cleo.

May God bless your being and may healing embrace you tightly always @galenkp

I'll be fine. You'll have to wait a little longer for my crypto. 🤪

Oh I like this one, getting to know the other weekend peeps a bit better with these questions!

That's the plan, let's see if it works.

Fun contest and full of great options. Again the beginning of a strong weekend, some new stories and memoirs will be read.

Let's see huh?

This community always makes me think deep😁 which has helped me a lot. Nice topics for discussion this weekend.


Yeah, and I am yet to submit my entry post.

I finally decide on a topic. All very interesting. Thanks for the opportunity to express myself.

Nice work.

I thought I would tell you something about my area of expertise: https://ecency.com/hive-168869/@plint/we-106-my-medieval-knowledge
I am actually a medievalist, or medieval historian and if you ever wondered what people like me do or what kind of research we are involved in then read my post!

This is very cool.

What if what you know a lot about is sex, is that allowed? 🤔😃

We're all adults and sex is a normal thing, so yeah, that's allowed. ✅

Permission granted. 🙂

Oh wow😃😃 first time I'm getting permission to write something about sex. Although I feel like it will make me the odd man out. It's sad there are no communities that allows erotics. Anyways I'll stick to one or the other topics maybe 😃

Knowing oneself better opens the door to loving oneself more....

Stop Think!


Trust you feeling a whole lot better G, getting rid of nasties is tiresome.

These are actually very nice topics to write on. It is always a blessing being here, and having the opportunities to express ourselves.

Thanks for having us, sir.
This is the link to my entry.

I read in the comment section you aren't feeling too well sir @galenkp, I am so sorry about that, I hope you feel better soon and be back to normal in no time.
Do have a great weekend you all

Thanks for your entry, and kind words. I'm not feeling very well, but I'll not die just yet and will eventually get well.

Death is far from it oh..
You will be fine soon and back to normal as before sir.
Do have a blessed day and a wonderful week ahead.


Thank you.

I love it more and more when the weekends come!


Get well soon. Regards

Oh... These are pretty good topics. My weekend just got a whole lot better!

P.S: Feeling better now G-dog?

No worries. And, yeah I'm getting a little better. Still feel like shite though.

Damn... Just take it easy bud.

Also, I had no idea oracles could get sick. I imagine the illness must be 10 times fold the more compared to mere mortal illnesses.

Lol, yes, us immortals don't get as sick as regular people. 😂

Ahh... I suspected.

Oh, what a life! - an immortal one. Bite me so I can turn into an oracle too G-dog!

That is how it works right?

Good evening, making my delivery of the weekend commitment We106 thank you for the trust to allow me to continue creating for everyone.

Have the best Sunday possible on that side of the world @galenkp


Delivery received.
