“Merry Christmas I could care less” – Fall Out Boy

What’s going on party people? I know it’s been a while since I last updated this poor excuse for a blog but I just haven’t been myself lately. I’m usually pretty cunty around the holidays anyways but lately, there have been a lot of shitty things happening. I’ve been considering it a win if I can get pants on and pick up the guitar. Nonetheless, I hope everyone had a nice holiday season. Mine was alright. The actual holidays and time spent with family were great but as previously mentioned there were some shitty events that lead up to it. It seems the phrase “when it rains it pours” is not only true but also appears to be a recurring theme in my life. So we’ll start with the week before Christmas.

I found out that a childhood acquaintance turned addict, had overdosed and died. While we weren’t close, I smoked enough weed and drank enough Captain Morgan with her to be taken aback by the news. My heart aches for her family and close friends, especially this close to the holidays. RIP TC

There was a deadly car crash taking the life of another person from my hometown. Young kid, only 18. I guess he was in a car with his friends and their car spun out hitting a guardrail. They all got out and were inspecting the damage when another car struck theirs and subsequently, struck the kid as well. He was pronounced dead at the scene. I didn’t know him but this is a horrific story. My heart aches for his friends and family again, so close to to the holidays. RIP OH

Other than me having to come into work on what was supposed to be the first day of my vacation… I received news on my legal fate. It sounds like the wonderful state of Colorado is going to be sticking me with a Felony. Which fucking sucks. On top of having to give up my guns, I feel like I won’t be able to fully move on from all of this. Because every time I go to do anything that requires a background check, that stain is going to be the first thing that pops up. And last time I checked, felons usually aren’t the cream of the crop in terms of job highers or apartment tenants. But I guess it could be a lot worse. I’m really happy he’s alive and made a full recovery. I just wish I didn’t have to live with this forever.

Honorable mention for 12/21… A 19-year-old girl from tinder showed up to my house blackout drunk then proceeded to pass out and puke all over my room… Yum. Which begs the question, what the actual fuck were you thinking? Luckily for her, I’m not a piece of garbage that would have done anything to put her in danger while she was in that state. But I can’t help but wonder what was going on in that empty head. Literally never had met her before. I think I did the right thing by letting her sleep it off for a bit while I hung out with the roomies before calling her a cab. But still what the fuck. Side note I need to write and update a blog about my horrific/ funny Tinder experiences. Lord knows I have plenty of them.

Coupled with the news of my Felony this was the most devastating news. My coworker and clowning buddy, Bill, passed away. He had been in the hospital the week prior to this with minor heart failure. He did return to work last week though and we all thought he was going to make a full recovery. But I guess on Saturday he went to go to the bathroom in the AM and just collapsed. I’ve been absolutely crushed by this. I only knew him for two years but I’ve shared more laughter-induced tears with his company than anybody else. Not only does my heart ache for him but also for his 14-year-old daughter he left behind. Absolutely tragic. RIP Monkey, I’ll have a water for you because it looks like a vodka.

So, folks, that’s why I haven’t quite been myself lately. That’s too many tragic events to take place over the course of one week. To be honest I think I’m going to be glad when this year is over. Going into it, I thought 2017 was gonna be my year. But it turned out to be a fucking shit show. I will say that that shit show made me realize a lot about myself and has made me make a lot of changes in my life. Hopefully, this is all just life preparing me for something greater. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes. “An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.” Have a safe New Years everyone.
