Well, if you’re in Canada, that is. Which I am. Obviously. Sorry, all you Americans. Too slow to the game, suckers.
I remember New Years so well. Boyfriend came up to my room drunk at 3AM and handed me a lemon, I drank by myself and watched trashy films or something, and that was that. Well, sorta. I remember thinking to myself – I guess I had this feeling – that 2017 was going to be huge for me. My life would take off, things would be different, and it would be happy, something of which I hadn’t seen in somewhere around two years.
I’m not there yet. In all honestly, this year has been shit. I was right about everything changing and being completely different from before, but happy? I’m not sure I’ve quite reached that, although I’m a lot closer to it than I was a few months ago. In the very least I can say that I’m beginning to believe that the world still does possess some good after all, because I had been pretty damn convinced that it didn’t.
However, it’s Thanksgiving – the one time of the year where we all sit around and take time to be thankful for what we have. Or something. Honestly, it’s mostly just shitty family dinners, mashed potatoes, and another weekend to work retail. After all, shouldn’t we be thankful about the happinesses in our lives all the time? Seeing as it is the long weekend, though, I thought I may as well take the opportunity to reflect on some of the more delightful aspects of my life.
Because It’s Almost Over And You’re Gunna Miss Out If You Don’t.
To be honest, I was feeling a bit antsy about this post. Not like there’s any pressure or anything, and I certainly don’t have anyone I really need to impress, but I missed posting Friday again, and there may just possibly be someone keeping up with my blog now that I feel the need to be cool for. I said may, alright? So don’t take that too far. Besides, there’s nothing cool about me. I’m a walking nerd. Random strangers come up to me and ask me where the nearest anime shops are. Think it might be the pink hair(?)
Hopefully I can be a bit more consistent now. It’s not an exaggeration when I say that my life’s completely changed from what it was a few days ago – which is awesome – but comes with a lot of life commitments. But since I’m starting to get into a bit of a routine here and whatnot, it should be good.
I thought that today, given the fact that August is just about over and September’s coming up pretty fast here, I’d write my ultimate to do list for the summer. There’s still a bit of time left to tackle everything, so tell me what you think of my ideas. Have any of your own ‘must dos?’ Let me know so I can be sure to try those too.
As it happens when your dad lives four hours away and you don’t drive, it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to spend Father’s Day with him this year. Unfortunately, this happens a lot. As much as I’d love to be there for him on his special days, often times, I’m not able to. Despite plans, things don’t work out the day you want them to. I know it’s not all that important to him – he’d rather just have me around instead of worrying about the days when he’s supposed to be celebrated, but I wanted to do something extra special for him this year – even if I’m broke.
Welp, it’s that time of year again. Getting older, advanced another age, closer to death – you know, however you want to look at it.
However, despite the fact that I had a pretty difficult year being twenty, I learned a heck of a lot of things. Things that I’m hoping I’ll carry with me throughout the rest of my life. While it may have been a challenge to get where I am now, I’m very thankful for the progress I’ve been able to make, and I can’t wait to see what being twenty-one brings me!
Anyways, here’s my list of the top twenty lessons I learned while being twenty.
Valentine’s Day is over. Half priced chocolates and candy stock the shelves, and spring’s still not here yet??
It’s still raining, snowing, hailing, clouding, and not at all sun shining, and everyone’s miserable. It’s scientifically proven that people are more miserable and sad this time of year. And by scientific, I mean that I worked in retail for years and January and February are legit the months of the rudest, grumpiest people. I get it man, this time of year is awful.
So what are we going to do about it? Sulk and wait for spring? Heck no, my dude. We’re going to fight the winter blues like the warriors we are. Who’s with me?
