The things in the world that bother me.

So I thought I would take a moment to just vent about the things that bother me that I either see, live through, hear, watch so on and so forth. This rant is in no way or in part of singling anyone or anything out and I am aware that that no matter how much I complain, the issues of the world are never going to fully go away so here goes….(And I got to thinking about this and I figured that I might just list the things that bother me versus going on in a big long paragraph hahaha).

1-Donald Trump.
2-Politics in general.
3-People who feel its right to toss religion into everything. (While I have no issues personally when it comes to religion, it does bother me when, even if the situation doesn’t call for it, religion always comes up or it’s placed in it.)
4-When you get these young folks (Yep I went there, even though I may not be too old in age, I feel I have an old soul) drive down the road blasting their damn music with the bass cranked way up and you can’t hear it! Like come on people, I know you love to listen to your music as super loud levels, but if your bass is causing the frame of your car to rattle apart, it’s unnecessary
5-Hypochondriacs
6-People who ride on the coat tails of others to gain what they want. I know that this is an everyday thing that has began since the dawn of time, but it’s still a thing that kills me a little inside.
7-Nosey people who don’t know how the hell to stay out of someone’s business. If something does not concern you or you are not part of the conversation, don’t feel that you need to jump right in and have a point of reference.
8-The whole pants sagging thing. I know that it’s a clothing trend to let your ass hang out but like seriously?? The whole world doesn’t need to know what color your boxers are.
9-The “Hey I’m not your kid’s parent but I’ll act like it anyway” outbreak. Yes this is an outbreak because more and more people are catching it and it needs to stop.
10-Kids who jump on the music bandwagon and have never heard of anything by the artist. Case in point:David Bowie. Yes I’m sure that there are kids out there in the vastness of time and space who have listened to David’s music, but I’m also sure that there are ones out there who have not and decided to, on the day of his passing, sport their best Bowie shirt that bought from Hot Topic, and then cry because he passed away. Not to sound mean but really?? You’re 12. I would get it of Justin Beiber vanished or One Direction broke up….oh wait nevermind.
11-This is possibly one of the biggest things that get me, and it’s one I heard last night….
When a 5 year old needs a bebe gun. My finace’s aunt had mentioned it last night at our little family gathering that her daughter’s “man” wants to get his son (no it’s not her’s) a bebe gun and that he has fired a real one. Really? Do you not see the writing on the wall on how this is a terrible idea? Yes I know that other families do the same thing and that it will never change but when one considers the source of where this is going to come from, this boy treats his gf, my fiance’s cousin, like a slave, he has abused her both physically and mentally, and from my understanding is very rough on his kid, and now he wants to get him a bebe gun. Right….and when he shoots your in your face and you lose an eye over it, tell me, in what way was it a good idea to go and buy him one?

I hope you can relate to the rants of a man who’s had his fill of certain things and yes, in a small way, I was channeling my hero George Carlin, who always spoke his mind no matter who it pissed off.

The year that was

So 2015 was an interesting year not just for me and my family but for the rest of the world and though not that alot of what happens out side my home effects me, sometimes there are thing that just get me to that point, but I, like i should, just let it go. 2015 was full of ups and downs. I felt the loss of another job thanks to “down sizing” but felt the plus side of that loss by working in a good place right up the road and making some amazing friends.  We also had an adventure to our first Con (Convention for those not in the know). We went to Retrogamecon, which is a one day celebration of all things gaming retro! We had seen cosplayers, fellow gamers, and met some talented artists, and the kicker, my fiance (Mom’s Place of Sanity and KreativeMumma) was one of several vendor’s featured in their Artist’s Ally! I couldn’t be prouder! I know that we both enjoyed our selves and our son T did as well! Before I forget to add this, we had some visitors come to see us for the day too! Our friend Crissy and her fiance Toby drove from Pa all the way up to Syrcause to see us, we had some friends I work with come all the way out and the kicker, my uncles who i haven’t seen since i was a kid and my cousin came to see us! That made the weekend totally worth it!  I’m hoping this year will be better then the last though with the things that happened at the end of the year, I’m hoping that it carries over 🙂

The story thus far….

So a brief and more happier update on the story of being a working dad and the adventures both good and bad, I’m back to work….again. After 2014 turned out to be a tough year for me with being hired, laid off, hired, and laid off just a few weeks before Christmas, I’m happy to report (a little late) that I’m once again working!!! Not through a temp service, not through some short means of any kind, but back to work without the chance of getting laid off because my contract ran out. I had alot of support from my family who without i would be lost. My fiance (Mom’s Place of Sanity) has been my rock and kept me from giving up. I know giving up was not an option with a family that needs you, but when you get discouraged that there are no jobs out there it makes it tough to not give up hope. 2015 has proven to be an amazing year so far. and it all happened on the second day of the new year of all days! So as it looks, 2015 is proving to be the year for alot of positive vibes and good news.

Fake

So this is going to be a short rant. When a person says they are “friends” with someone be a friend. When someone says “your more like my sister” to someone be that sister. But we have to hide behind our addictions of being a big shot and thinking we someone beyond our station. You are as fake as they come. If you never read this, I don’t care but if by some chance you happen to come across this blog understand this, no one can stand someone who plays make-believe with the people you “care about”.
