This is the part where I would reference the 6 other obscure pop culture references but I'll refrain.
Call me weird, but, I have always found something hopeful or positive about that quote. It's not "fuck my life" or "I want to shoot myself"-- 2 phrases I'm becoming known for as well-- "misfortune" doesn't sound as bad as "bad luck" or "sadness" and I feel that being humped in the leg implies that it will end at some point. I don't know, just my thoughts.
ANYWAY! We're updating on the Bucket List today as I have been inevitably slacking on this stuff and updating peoples. It's almost the end of 2012-- insane, right? But then that means another milestone on the bucket list is approaching and I'm breaking a sweat a little bit as some things will not be done.
So, recap: Everything to be accomplished by the time I left Philly was except finishing that textbook for my doctorate. The gender chapter threw me for a loop as I got bored and/or pissed off every 5 sentences and eventually gave up reading. Fortunately, the chapters that were required for the course, were all the chapters leading up to gender and a couple others were optional so, I lucked out there. Probably will be the first sexuality book I sell too-- it was just terrible. All the rest I've kept as references but I really don't need 4 basic human sexuality textbooks-- 3's good.
Moving onto things by the end of 2012:
- Have the basement mostly done.
- Build a piece of furniture I have designed from scratch.
Start another blog for my DIY escapades illustrating the previous 2.
- Lose 5 pounds.
That is the third fucking place that made me pay for "first and last month" and then when I go to leave, they're like, "Oh wait, you're still stuck here for another 2 months." You. bitches. No means no. I want to leave and I want to leave now. I feel like my wallet has been roofied and I find out months later that my wallet has the STD of being stuck at this shitty gym for another 2 months! Now, I know I could go start at the other gym today, regardless, but that seems like wasting money! Not only have I blown the last 2 months of membership (which I'm more ashamed of than not losing weight/being healthy) but I'm not blowing these last 2 that I have to take! Fuck. That. Sorry, I'm still so pissed off by that. I mean, honestly, that is the most bullshit shit that has ever been pulled. Why do businesses do that?! What a bunch of assholes!
Ok, sorry. I could and probably will go on verbally but I got pissed (in case you didn't notice). Anyway, yea, I haven't lost 5 pounds.
- Get on top of the focusing problems and find another general practitioner.
And the misfortune comes in here- I've actually gotten more done on my long-term goals than my short term ones.
- Study the shit out of BDSM and other topics on my own without being prompted by Widener.
- Be a licensed MFT.
And that's all! I mean, the final goal was to keep you guys informed and... done. So, I'm out!
