I was going to say happy 2018 in the title, but who am I kidding. It’s just another day/year. Same shit different date. It’s been a while since I blogged. Not too much as changed. Still single, still fat, still watching “Say Yes to the Dress” as my guilty pleasure, just older and not that much wiser.
Before I go on any further, I suppose I should do a 2017 in review type thingy. Well for me the main take away for the year 2017 is something I have mentioned before. Helping others ends up biting you in the arse. Be selective on who/when you are (or think you are) helping others. Good intentions may backfire and are rarely appreciated. This lesson as been thought to me both in my professional and personal life this year.
That and the realisation that I tend to place more importance on personal relationships/people than they do in return. That’s the theme of my life, lack of reciprocation. I’m not talking about the romantic relationships, clarification, if you haven’t gotten by now that I have no semblance of a love life. Just people in general. They are mostly selfish bastards. And yes I am not that naive that I only figured that out in 2017. I suppose I was in denial for a bit, giving all the benefit of the doubt.
I want to say I will blog more in 2018, but I don’t know if I will. Here’s my plan for 2018 so far. Save up and travel to Canada. Why Canada? It’s a long/weird story, let me know if you what to know it. However currently I am a little scared to travel so far a lone and also am not sure I can afford it comfortably. But I am going to try and get there anywhere. So if around August/September you read news of solo female tourist eaten by bear while hiking in the Rockies, it’s probably me.
Hopefully all of you (if there is anyone reading this) have great year ahead.
P.S. Anyone need a travel partner to the Vancouver/banff area (and maybe Seattle) around late August,early September?
