One of the last pictures I took of myself at work. I'm not going to go off on a rage-filled rant about what went down (even though I want to), just know that they told me one thing and did another. So I can't help but feel mad, hurt, and sad about what happened. But, it is what it is and it's another life lesson tucked into my pocket to not let people walk all over me. I've been in the working game for a long time and have never been treated like that before. But, it's not my first time at the rodeo, and most likely won't be my last.
I feel like the universe is trying to tell me something. And that thing is that I can't work for other people's gain anymore. It's time for ME. I'm tired of helping other people make money. The only trick now is to find out what might work for me and go for it, hard. Time to stop being afraid and use my brain again, get out of drone mode.
One silver lining of being unemployed is that I don't have to go outside if I don't want to. With the amount of snow we have been getting and the temperatures keeping on at a steady -25C (-13F, and that's WITHOUT the windchill factored in), it's kind of a blessing to be able to stay inside.
And the amount of sleeping I have been doing switches from being pretty intense to non-existent. So that's always cool to deal with.
And although I am quite lucky that I don't HAVE to go outside right now, after a couple of days I get stir crazy and force Dave to take me on long drives to out in the middle of nowhere so we can walk around in the snow and freeze our asses off. He's such a sweet man, that one.
A V-Day card I sent out to a few choice people that I love the most.
Another one of my stir crazy adventure ideas: let's find a green house to hang out in so we can pretend like it's summer.
Don't I wish!!!
It seems lately that on our many drives, it starts out being sunny and gorgeous for such a cold day:
And then in the blink of an eye it's crazy storming and white outs and madness. Cool weather Ontario (and the rest of the world too, I know how crazy it's been!)
Went to John's last weekend to visit him and his cat children. Had a blast as usual, Drank too much, ate too much...you know how it is.
Shit! This is going to be weird, but do any of you remember Michael Alig and the Club Kids? If you don't look it up...some pretty interesting stuff. Anyway, Michael Alig was charged for the murder of Andre "Angel" Melendez back in 1996. I was 16, and I remember following this story back then. Macaulay Culkin even starred as Michael in the 2003 film Party Monster. Like I said, pretty interesting stuff.
This Honey Trap invitation to one of Michael's last parties that he threw as a club promoter before his arrest was up for grabs on Twitter (by Michael himself who got out of jail early last year), if you answered one his questions correctly.
Guess who got the answer right? Now before you think that John is some weirdo who enjoys collecting murderer paraphernalia, cool your jets people. He has just always had a deep interest in pop culture and the Club Kids were a huge part of the 'scene' back in the 90s. And ok fine, he is a bit of a weirdo.
But I guess that makes me even more of a weirdo for yelling "HOLY SHIT THAT'S COOL!" when he showed it to me. No shame.
And now we are back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Ugh. The face of someone who is unaware of the hangover she would experience the next day.
My cats are frigging weirdos. Pandorah just stares into the space heater, as if she is praying to her gods in there.
Sometimes she stands there for so long, she falls asleep like that. Strange bird (ha!)
And on that note, a strange picture of yours truly to end a truly strange post.
I feel like there are many changes in the air. Perhaps 2015 will be the year that our lives become completely different, who knows? It's time to dig deep inside this mess of a mind, and figure out who I want and need to be.
Scary stuff, but so is the alternative of staying the same.
Stay warm loves!
