This will be a post without music so if my thoughts go a little off tangent, please do forgive me. I had to go and leave my headphones at work.
But I guess that’s what the theme for this year is, “The Year Without Music”, because that’s what it felt like. The songs I play while I’m doing anything help focus my energy and I succeed. Without it, I tend to be all over the place. Many ups and downs.
…and there were a lot of ups and downs this year.
Ups…I got another promotion at work, albeit just a formality, it came with some perks I guess. My dad had a baby so I end my streak as a biological only child, which could be good or bad lol. Got my first trip to Fright Fest courtesy of Washy’s mom, it was awesome. Me and Anthony started our birthday tradition this year.
Downs…taxes suck. Mikey broke his leg, not to mention we had a major momentary falling out. Almost got into a fight with some high school seniors because of Anthony lol. Went into a not-so-pleasant relationship that led me to do something I thought I never would. My computer got infected..badly. My Xbox broke. Oh then got another Xbox and it got RRoD. Got into 2 disputs at work with coworkers. I now owned a car for 2 months that costs me too much to drive now. Got my first parking ticket. Almost literally fought/had jumped a coworker for messing with Anthony, who now kisses Anthony’s butt lol. That makes me laugh everytime. And my rent went up. Oh and I’m still not back in school.
That “downs” section was way longer than the “ups” one.
This was just the year I thought I was grown enough, decided to walk on my own, and a lot of things fell apart for me. 2013 will be the year I crawl back, incubate to grow some more, then come back and do it all again. I house a dragon soul. Dragons don’t stay down. We spit fire on that which oppose us, scoff at that which is a waste of time, and are only tolerant of that which is worthy.
But as much as this year sucked, I do have a couple of shoutouts. Because honestly without you, I wouldn’t have been able to get through it.
My little brothers’ mom, love you so much. I’m not your son, but still you take care of me and help me through everything. I swear I turn into my inner teenager whenever I’m with you.
My sister, I don’t know who I would be without you. I did some major stupid stuff this year, but you always had my back. Even though I didn’t follow your advice, you still supported me while telling me off about it lol. And I’ll be seeing you soon, I just hope I’m not walking into a beating.
Next year will be a quiet one. Also, it’ll be an expensive one, but quiet. Too much turbulence this year. I’m the kind of guy who likes things to be stable..I hate change lol.
Til next time. Stay frosty.
