I’m bad about this blogging thing.
Actually, I’ve just been really exhausted. Working 50 hours this week alone, and I worked 45 hours last week! And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any easier on me anytime soon (or anyone of us).
So, I’m posting, FINALLY, again, with a warning that I won’t be steady until August. Then I’ll be working on prepping for #NaNoWriMo and I’m stupid excited for that!
Do I have an idea for it? Nope, not a clue.
But I’m ready to begin!

Okay, I have plans, but I’m in so much pain right now that I don’t want to share them.
I’m literally shaking from the let-down/endorphins. Oh god. I’m shaking so badly.
Time for me to remove the contacts and just go to sleep.
Technical issues and after dental work, I’m not arsed to do it. It sucks because I filmed a LOT yesterday! I was so gung-ho to do it. Took nearly an hour to get the footage OFF my phone and than … Continue reading
If “failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor” (Truman Capote), how spicy do you like your success stories?
—The Spice of Success
I hate when someone gets things too easily, but I also hate when someone has to struggle continuously to get where they need to go or get what they need to get.
Considering today is Election Day, I like a candidate that has a bit of an uphill battle. One who doesn’t get all the money from corporations. I want a candidate that didn’t live the rich life. I want one who will actually understand what the middle class and lower have dealt with. I don’t have a problem with finding out someone I might vote for had to be on food stamps at one point, or had to get student loans. When I hear that Mommy and Daddy paid for everything, I get turned off. They don’t know the struggle that it is to live in this world. They have always had someone or something to fall back on. That’s what I look for in a candidate. That’s the success stories I enjoy.
When it comes to the books that I read, I like a little failure. Guy gets girl on the first try? Can we say so super boring. There is honestly nothing worse than that. I hate it. It’s so trite and over done. But when they have to struggle a little to find their happiness? That’s real life. That’s how it really happens. That’s the real world. That’s the kind of story I like to read.
My life has had it’s challenges. I’ve dealt with severe depression. I’ve dealt with the highs and lows of manic depression, also known as bi-polar, later re-diagnosed as PMDD (Premenstrual dysphoric disorder). That’s what I dealt with. I also dealt with insane relatives. Really bad home life (mostly of my own making), and I came out on the other side stronger, healthier, happier. That’s the best way to live my life, I think.
Failure might not be an option, but as Yoda says “Do or do not. There is no try.” You can fail but you did it. You didn’t just try. You failed. Then you learn from that failure, and you try again. That’s what makes life interesting. Having nothing but success makes life stupid boring, and no one, and I mean no one, wants that. Even if you claim you want to always be right, you’re completely lying to yourself.

I started a cardio program via EA Active 2 for the Wii last week. Instead of being smart, I decided to add in WiiFit with it as well. So, I overdid it, as usual, and was in SO much pain that I couldn’t even contemplate this week. Ugh!
I hate feeling like I’m a total failure. It doesn’t help that my feet are requiring sneakers but I can’t find sneakers that don’t kill both feet. I can’t find a pair of sneakers that will let arch supports or whatever inside them.
Sometimes, being me really sucks and the failure hurts.
