Happy New Year

Dear 2014,

Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.



May we all have a blessed year.

  1. Happy New Year, Kip. You can tell this message is from me as it’s several days late.
    I await the day when technology allows me to wear that gif on a t-shirt. Perhaps that is one of innumerable wonders and pleasures 2015 holds in store for us! How has your year been so far?

    • First I’m going to ask you how yours has been? Good I hope.

      Mine has been…not good. And not because of anything that has happened. The Univeristy is closed until Monday. I have spent most of the last ten days doing little but sleeping and reading light, fun books. Sounds ideal, right? But every morning I wake up angry at stupid, irrational, meaningless things and all I can do is distract myself from it. I tried writing something for fun and every word was just a depressing, uninpsired grind. I completely blew last year’s classes, and now I’m considering dropping out for a semester. Just…my head’s not in it and I have to deal with renewing my bankrupcy (student loans I can’t afford to pay back) this February/March. I have a full-time, decent paying job with benefits for my area (which is good considering our county’s 10% unemployment rate) and I’m barely keeping my head above water. I did everything I could to make extra money last year; I did pet sitting, I sold things, I did medical studies that involved muscle biopsies, and I still could not get ahead. My car is falling apart, mostly from lack of maintenance I have not been able to afford. Everything is a struggle…and nothing makes me happy…and I’m so tired.

    • If you are talking about the ultimate giving up, this is one of those times that I need the pets. Who would take care of them if I was gone? As for giving up on everything else…I don’t know. I realize I’m in a depressive state. Hopefully it will pass soon. I wish I could write tho’. It used to make me so happy.

      Thank you for the gift. πŸ™‚ That was very kind of you. I’ll read it.

      • You’re welcome. πŸ™‚ Glad you replied to my comment so soon. Couldn’t go to bed until I heard back from you. Brain too exhausted to come up with anything better than “Hang in there.” Hope things get better for you soon. ‘Night Kip.

  2. If we’re having a ‘late again’ big cajones competition I have undoubtedly won (and I’ll take one of the teeshirts too)
    Happy new thingy everyone.
    Gordon Bennett, It just has to be better than the last one!
    By the by, pintrest is my Candy Crush, my numb, sleep deprived brain can cope with pretty images, and weird facts in little, itsy bitsy pieces, it’s just the actual world I have a problem with…

    • Jesus, didn’t anybody have a good 2014? Mine wasn’t one long sparkling river of delight but it was better than the crapacious 2013.
      I was curious as to how you could have “moved on” to Pinterest, as Kip said. I thought that site was just a scrapbook, people didn’t actually do anything there. But looking at pretty pictures, well, ain’t that just what the RA fandom spend their time doing?
