Me! Hope you’re not disappointed….who were you expecting? Michelle Tanner?
Anyway, it seems like all I ever do is begin my posts with apologies for not keeping you better updated and because I’m just so damn predictable, guess what I’m about to do now? …soorrryyyy!!!! I cringed when I saw the date of my last post. I’ve let you down, but more importantly, I’ve let myself down. I shan’t let that happen again. I was actually prepared to let this hang a while longer until I received an email today from a dear friend stating she was looking forward to going home tonight and reading the blog to catch up on my going-ons. That’s when I thought “ohhhhh shiitteeee”.
If it makes you feel any better I’ve THOUGHT about writing an update! So much has happened since the beginning of December that I think I’ll just skip it all and jump to present day. You don’t really want to hear about the new place, new job, Christmas in Sardinia and NYE in Poland anyway, right? Ya, didn’t think so.
I’ll get on to what I do best- rant. I tweeted something today: I’m not impatient. It’s just that ageing has made me value my time and made me less tolerant of bullshit. (Unless maybe the definition of impatience is “lacking tolerance for bullshit”)
I think that in general, I am a fairly patient person. If the situation calls for it. And there is a limit to where my patience ends. That’s usually when the bullshit, or in some (many) cases, stupidity, starts.
I enjoy teaching people things and am very willing to dedicate time to make sure you get a concept. But if after a while you STILL can’t get it, even after very logical reasoning, good-bye patience.
I like to listen and think I’m pretty patient when it comes to hearing people’s problems and dilemmas out. But when it comes to the point where listening to problems and trying to create a constructive answer becomes a pity-party-let’s-all-feel-sorry-for-me fiesta, good-bye patience. Quit yer complainin’ and do something about your shit situation or change your attitude towards it. *Just for the record, this is not me complaining, I’m clearly having a rant*
Things don’t come easy, people. I’m happy where I am now, but whoa baby it took a long time to get here. I was patient, I worked hard, I was flexible and now I’m happy I can look back and say “ahhh finally”. I think it’s the path that has lead me to where I am that’s made me a little harder and much less tolerant to stupid bullshit. The number of UGH moment I’ve been through are off the charts.
I guess this is an FYI for all those that are fortunate (hehe) enough to be in my life. Know that if I keep you around it’s because I want to. Because as I’ve made quite evident, I hate wasting my time- you’ve only got one life! (Assuming you don’t believe in the afterlife, which I do not)
