Best year EVER!
No, it wasn't the best year ever.
I'll also have to disagree.
Eh, I guess I could give a toast. I look back at what happened a year ago and where I am now. Tbh, I am in a much better place and am doing fine on my own with a few friends. So what am I thankful for? Not killing myself when I thought it was over. Getting over the men and "friends" that were in my life. Starting new and fresh and doing what I want. Finally getting rid of facebook. Dabbling more in arts, crafts, and cooking.
My plans for next year if we get there? Maybe learning how to say "**** you" to people displease me. Growing more of a backbone than what I have. Being awesome. Continuing to get my life together. SCHOOL. Can't stress that one enough. I want to go back to school. Close to getting that degree. Get more into the hobbies I want to do. Maybe pull my Man Friend/OTG out of his shell more and help him do some things he wants to do. And I would really like to meet Zokar.
This year, to me, was neither the best nor worst. It was a mixed blessing. But, I think that's how my life is in general. Lots of good with lots of bad. What I'm thankful for... the ability to appreciate one and ignore the other. As for next year, I'd like to land this specific job I've been interviewing for over the last few months. I'd like to start flying lessons. I'd like to visit Leo I'd like to be happy.
Of course, this assumes that I don't get sucked into a wacky vortex as a result of some crazy calendar...
not my wacky vortex you're gonna fall into. :rolf:
:rolf::rolf::rolf: crazy you!!!! hahaha
hey, didn't you say her birth year was 1985?
I don't want back in that crazy vortex!!! You crazy!??? LOL
oh, that's right! Because you would be nine, either with a bowl cut or a mullet, and I would be non-existant!
Wait, that doesn't sound fun. But it sounds fun while trying to make you feel old. tee-hee-hee!!
I'll never be old! I could be 100 and I'll still act like this
:cloud9: Laarz has a specific saying. Like, you can grow old but you can never grow up? Is that it?
I like it! Where you at Laarz! I might steal that
This thread has been turned into a Leo/Zokar spamfest lol oops!
Speaking of spam, gonna direct you to the Bar. I may have started an epic starring Corax and Kegs. ^^
*hugs to everyone!*
EDIT: so, apparently, we may not say goodbye to 2012 because the world "is ending". So what will I be doing? Cooking up what may be my last meal. What to cook? :scratchchin: Suggestions are welcome. I will be dining with my special gentleman Friend.
I will say, however, it was a pleasant experience with y'all. I don't regret all the hours I spent on here and getting to know many of you personally. :nod:
I'm with Vivi - the year simply sucked, despite steady improvement in generic trends.
I'm wondering how the wise will differentiate it from this:
Something nice; I don't know your capability. I personally loved Steak Diane since childhood, and my wife adapted it to Chicken Diane.
Merv, I didn't say it sucked...but no, it's not been great.
From my point of view I'd rather be in your shoes where you have the energy to fuss or rage about subjects.
However, when you can get violently sick unexpectedly, when you feel drained, when your health doesn't allow you to just simply do the job you love, when hope fails - all you want is to be healthy, and other subjects, be it politics or ethics do not dissappear but fade. Things are the way they are, and getting angry over it and writing longventing posts, even if it helps getting it off your chest, won't change it.
I am not having a go at you, that's not the sort of person I am and I hope you don't see it as such.
But for now I'm glad to see happy Leo-posts, seems she and Zokar have something special, and when you feel down and low it's always good to see heartwarming things.
Maybe that's why I so passionately despice Christmas: its sentimental side feels made up and is not genuinly heartwarming. Small kind gestures, from a close friend taking me to emergency doctors and comforting me, to a tramp who saw the light on my bike was broke and fixed it while I was shopping and then refused to take money for it, small gestures are what matter. Things on a worldwide scale are out of my hands. I can only try and be kind to the world I can reach.
Sorry, didn't mean to seem to put words in your mouth - I get enough of that claim already...
I suspect that when I stop raging I'll... stop. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but again my personality type is "Crusader".
Perception, IMO. I haven't enjoyed several recent Christmas-times, and I tend to despise the commercialism, but at the same time I've had a couple of enjoyable ones (mostly associated w/ my child). It sounds puerile when you hear it, but "Christmas is in our hearts" is quite true - to the point that I often don't feel like we should just consider it a once-a-year time to stop being nasty fecks to each other.
Bob's cartoon is perfect. Hugs, Vivi, 'cause they can't hurt. :grouphug:
Also, maybe this helps:
Separate names with a comma.
