A Day Late and a $$$ Short
Money, it’s a crime
Share it fairly but don’t take a slice of my pie
Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today
But if you ask for a rise it’s no surprise that they’re giving none away
After 6 hours of sleep in 3 days, the inspection ended and I came home and slept. Yup. Instead of writing this blog I slept until I had to go on air. Then I slept more. And I am exhausted. But here are some thoughts from the last week or so….a day late!
It has been since before F9 that I have written and regardless, I am a day late and a dollar short. Money sucks and I need to win the lottery. Not that it will happen, but a girl can dream, right? Starting a gofundme sounds great right now. I always wonder if I should try seeing I need to catch up on bills and get my vehicle fixed. But sadly my pride takes over and I just bide my time and hope things work out.
F9 was awesome, however and seeing the Dream Team was always a pleasure. It always sucks when it ends. It is hard to get back into the swing of things afterwards however and saying goodbye to everyone for another year can be tough. Next year should be a big one, however. F10, yep 10 years of Furioustival, should be a good time.
What makes me laugh, however, is that before and after the weekend, people crawl out of their holes and try to stay relevant. Oh we miss you, wish I could be there, etc. I have said it a million times, if it mattered to you you would make it happen. If Mykar can fly from New Zealand, Loppy comes every year and from Manitoba, Canada, you could make the time to come see us as well. The excuses are almost amusing at this point and we hear them every year. Usually from the same characters. It is okay if you cannot make it, but stop the lies and the smoke screen. Chances are we have more fun without you.
Everything is changing, though. At the root of it all, it is harder for us to let go when people matter to us and we see we do not matter to them. In every scope of life. Some people hang on, I just walk away now. People make their choices and I refuse to be an option. It feels better and it is less stressing. There are plenty of things to worry about. People playing bullshit games is not something I entertain anymore. Nothing can be more freeing like saying a big fuck you to people and moving on. 😉
The new class has begun and once it is complete, I will be on the downward swing of the program. In a bout a year I will have my Master’s degree. Then I think I will take a break before starting my PhD. #lifegoals
I need more sleep….
Press Play: So fitting that I turned on music and Pink Floyd’s Money was playing. I forgot how much I like this song now and again.
Popcorn Worthy: I need suggestions…I have already finished OITNB and Wentworth’s new seasons….any suggestions?
Weekly WTF: The price of renting sucks and getting a home loan sucks even more. What is this country becoming?!
Coffee Chaos: It is almost July and I am dreading the summer ending already. Pretty soon we will see pumpkin everything. Pumpkin coffee blows….but for now….find strawberry shortcake flavored. I am playing with a recipe to make my own and will let you know the final result!
Kitchen Kauldron: GRIFTER GOT ME A KITCHEN AID MIXER!!! Every year, he gets me a gift and this year he stunned me. Despite the fact I did not react the way he wanted, this is so exciting on many levels. Next week I will get the stuff to make dessert pasta and show you my creation. There are so many possibilities now! Thank you to Grif and X for the amazing present.
….BTW Zayda mushrooms and pickles are the m ainstay of my diet lately. I need to eat better.
Until next time….be good or be good at it!
