Another yearly update, I reckon.
It’s so funny… when I started this blog, I was a 20-year-old man trying to get his shit together, still insanely depressed over my ex, who was — by all means — my first love, and now — about five years later from starting this thingymajig — I’ve been in a relationship with my current girlfriend since August 2014. We met online way back in June 2012, talked a bit but didn’t become close until January 2014, and now she’s moving in with me in about a week or two.
Time heals all wounds… fact… but wounds heal faster if you are not actively engaging in thoughts about the past (in regards to relationships that are finished).
I went back to school in 2014. I nearly have my associates. I just need to complete a few math courses to finally move forth. Back in 2011 and early 2012 (and pretty much all of 2013), I didn’t accomplish a goddamn thing, so just being proactive in moving forward, no matter how marginally incremental is huge for me.
Life is what you make of it. It really is. Struggle is inevitable no matter what. That’s a part of life. Also, just because you become successful doesn’t mean you never struggle or have to put in work again. That’s something that drives me crazy about those motivational Instagram pages… they show off the flashy cars, fancy meals, the miscellaneous material goods… but they don’t fill anybody in on the day to day grind, which I find interesting. Now, you might say, “CKS, what the hell do you know about success?” and you’d be right in asking that question, but my answer? Through observation. One of my friends is wildly successful, and he’s an inspiration to me, and he’s constantly grinding and working his ass off. Not to the point of ignoring those in his life, but he works hard, even though he could probably afford to take some breaks, no less.
Anywho… I miss blogging sometimes, but I don’t have a lot to write about these days. I was more introspective in late 2011/early 2012. It’s funny how quickly life changes. Early 2012… that was before the Romney/Obama 2012 election, and here we are four years later, getting ready to deal with this year’s presidential election.
I lost contact with a lot of people on here… kinda sad when I think about it on occasion. I might write back again in the future. Probably will. Probably in a year. How about some Stevie Ray Vaughan? I used to write on this blog a lot; it’s a thing i used to do, yeah?
