So, yeah. I’ve been “missing” for a few weeks now. What in the hell have I been up to? Great question!
As many of you know, I’ve been working full time, going to school 4 nights a week, and then cramming in other activities to fill in what little free time I have remaining. I took off my Thursday night class (microeconomic theory) to go to my first concert in a long time; Christina Perri + James Blunt at the Warfield in San Francisco. I was fortunate enough to meet Christina and have a CD autographed by her!
I finished up my classes last week – two weeks after moving to a new company, where my growth opportunities are just about endless. I’m doing more or less the same thing that I have been doing for nearly three years now, except at a very prestigious company, and for substantially better pay. I’ve learned a ton about the industry in my training classes that I never had the opportunity to learn before. I had my business class (Tuesday nights) grade posted over the weekend — squeezing in my ‘A’ with a 90-point-something percent in the class (with a ‘B’ on the final). there’s a possibility that i end up with 3/3 ‘A’s, but who knows. I’m aiming for ‘B’ grades, and the ‘A’s are all accidental, I assure you.
Linda and I moved the majority of my large furniture, including computer, TV entertainment system, etc this weekend. Suffice to say, I’m a wee bit tired today from heavy lifting, stairs, etc; but it’s all worth it in the end. ;)
I’ll be trying to squeeze in my normal internet-friendly self in the next week or two, now that my days are no longer 17 hours long, and I’m not skipping between beds/homes. I’ll be fixing up my bathroom (new shower, toilet, flooring, etc) in the next month and hope to be renting my condo out by July. We shall see.
I’ve decided that my jar of heart collecting should by now be absolutely empty, much to Christina Perri’s pleasure I am certain. Any karmatic balances this world holds should well be balanced for me by now from any previous actions I’ve taken in the past. For the rest of you, I apologize for any inflictions I have created. Let there be justice, please. I’ve paid my dues.
To ensure that I have a better “new year”, I’m going with the culmination of my original thought process enforced by a friend’s methodology, and cutting ties. Possibly a lot of ties. More importantly those that are poisonous to me, useless in nature, or are self-inflicting painful. Starting will be the removal of a few connections on Facebook, or the entire removal of my profile. Who knows. I may quietly flip a coin somewhere off into the distance.
I can on one hand count the number of people, not related to me, that I consider myself thankful for interacting with this year; whether I knew you previously or we met through some cosmic force during the course of this past year. This is not a prosperous message to state, obviously, yet the fact still remains.
Where do I journey on from here? While I am still working through that, both in the mental and the physical sense, I realize that time will unfold everything, when it’s good and ready. I’ll take yet another page from Kid Cudi, as I did last year:
Away very far away
To another universe where all people say
It’s a new new place for the special to embrace
Like a martian you seein’ it
Wandered out the place
Take what you need from the valley of the hopeful
Even if you dry you’ll be floatin’ high above it
You can say Bye Bye Bye
Sky might be fallin’ but remember you can fly high
Funny how little things can change. Or to quote one of my favorite personalities, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, my New Years resolution is to remember last year resolution and finish that one first.
Good night everyone. Be safe.
