What's Going On
Well, blog o' mine, I notice you've been getting neglected and I'm here to say I'm sorry. Sort of. You see, the time that I used to spend updating you is now being spent doing homework, working, or most importantly, trying to get my baby to stick his tongue out at me.
I've also been reading about the 100 worst-reviewed movies ever, and I'm shocked that I've seen so many of them.
My "free" time has been split between playing at MSCC with J-Tho, J-Mer and the 'Cane, rehearsing the new band material with Jonny and Benjy, and working on some cover band songs to play at Jessica's wedding, with JJ, Benj, and SLR.
Then there's the whole baby thing. Trying to get through each day with minimal crying and minimal poop on my hands is tough. And then there's Simon to deal with! Zoinks!
But seriously, the weight of responsibility can be freaking overwhelming. There's a person whose entire LIFE is dependent on M & I. Now, I don't know about you, but I feel fairly unequipped to deal with my own life, but I think that's part of being human. You do the best you can and try not to hurt people or screw up too badly, then you die.
So, as I prepare to finally graduate college, I need to find some sort of career that can help sustain life for the baby, M, and I, all without somehow killing my soul. And in my experience, 8-5 M-F jobs are designed to drain you of energy, hope, optimism, and faith in humanity. Like I said to God the other day, "Why do you lay these troubles on an already troubled mind?"
Meanwhile, we're talking about getting a new house, since we're getting a little tired of the constant gangs of homeless people, drunks, stray dogs, and whores who frequent the sidewalks of our block. But buying a new house is rather impossible when a) one party only works part time, and sporadically at that and b)one party is presently on Mo-ternity leave.
