The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Long time, no internet…

Welcome back to my humble blog. It has been quite some time since I’ve had a working computer and internet, and a lot has happened in that time. The good, the bad, and the ugly…but hey, that’s life for ya. We’ll start with the gritty so we can end with the good…

The bad is sad, and it was pretty ugly too. However, everything is relative, so if you don’t like how something looks from one perspective try a new one. Death seemed to cling to me for a few months there, and with it that unshakable feeling that I’m not living up to my potential, and I’m taking my loved ones for granted. I kept feeling like I should have told people how much they meant to me, because you never know when you will end up choking on your tears and all those unspoken words. But when I take a step back and look at this rather bleak picture, I see that it is just one storm cloud in a white and wispy blanket over the skies of life. I decided that I needed to step out from under that cloud and the way to do it was to tell those people that I have what they mean to me. Even if I don’t tell them everyday, there is a list of people (and animals) that I think about and are thankful for every morning when I walk to the bus. I take time everyday to remind myself how lucky I am to have them here, in this world, because even though I can still love them when they’ve moved on, it’s just not the same.

As for the ugly, well, there’s some ugly shit happening all over this pretty planet right now. We’ve got the standard list of ugliness: war, corruption, greed, starvation, exploitation, and environmental devastation, and the ugliness that happens a little closer to home: bullying, ridiculing, and stereotyping, just to name a few. With all this ugliness, what’s a peace-loving hippy to do? Well, the same thing you do anyway…spread the love. Forget about all the nasty, dark, and downright depressing BS and focus on planting the seeds of beauty in your own mind. Let those roots grip your soul and hold fast, spreading leaves through your body to absorb that precious life-enriching goodness that is all around you, should you chose to be open to it. Today the sun is shining brightly on my personal happy-plant, so lets move on to the good shall we?

THE GOOD: The only one you need~

I GOT MARRIED!!!!! Not to just anyone of course, but to the man I love more than anything! He’s so dreamy….he cooks, he cleans, he snuggles cats (better then me even, if you can possibly imagine), and best of all he’s MINE!  I just needed to take this opportunity to gush, and to show my appreciation to my honey for all that he does for me. I also need to thank everyone who made my wedding day so great not even amnesia can make me forget! I won’t name names all over the interwebs, but you know who you are…family, friends, we wouldn’t be here without you.  Even if you couldn’t make it, it’s all good, that’s what anniversary parties are for!

More good: I’m back in school after taking the fall quarter off to get hitched. Learning makes the brain hurt sometimes, but it’s all worth it when I look at some poor uneducated fool and know that that’s not me. Ignorance is bliss, but knowledge is power~ and I wouldn’t trade that for a lobotomy full of rainbows and sunshine.

Well, I suppose, I should get back to my responsisillities now…yes, responsisillities, because responsibility is so much better with a side of silly.
