Sometimes Life Sucks And Then Some

I remember that when I was around twelve years old, there was a lot of tension going on in my family. My father was a very strict man and my older sisters had grown up and wanted to do as they pleased. The thing is, that one day, my father decided that enough was enough for him, and so he picked up his belongings and while nobody was home, he just walked away and left the family. I’m not going to say that life was easy, but we did survive. I’m not even going to say, that I went on to become a college graduate and I’m living a fairy-tale life. The thing is, that I dropped out of high school when I was around sixteen years old. But I used to blame my father for all the shit that I went through in life, but then I came to realize that I was to blame for my own fuck ups.

What I am trying to say is, that right now, there are times in my life, when I just want to walk away from everything. I just want to leave everything behind me and start a new life in a quiet small town. A place like the Cheers sitcom intro song says… “a place where every knows your name… and they are always glad you came”. A small town, with a population of only a couple of hundred people. Somewhere that I could just grow old and die alone. Do you want to know what the funny part of it all is? That… it’s just a thought. I just feel like that, when things are going downhill for me. But like everything else in life… I will get over it and eventually move on.

Women Are Underappreciated And Underpaid

It’s funny how the year just got started and I’ve already taken two vacation days from work. The funniest part of it all is, that even though I mixed them up with the weekend and a holiday in order to be off from work for five days, I was busy 99.9% of the time, doing different things at home. Don’t get me wrong, the time that I was busy, I was helping my wife out, which in no way, shape or form bothers me at all. One thing that my loyal 1.5 readers don’t know about me is, that I help around home by doing the dishes, sweeping and mopping the floor and doing other things. I guess that what I am trying to say is, that I’m not some kind of macho man, that just goes out to work and comes back home to give orders to the wife and kids.

You have to understand, that I am not the type of man, that likes to sit around the home doing shit, only because I work forty hours a week. As a matter of fact, I think that women that are home makers are underrated and underpaid. You just don’t know how many times, I have told my wife, that if women who are home makers got a salary, they would make more money than any man, because of the many job functions that they do at home on any given day. That is the reason why I like helping my wife around the home. Even though I get home tired, I help my wife, because I know for a fact, that even though I worked eight hours a day, she works double that at home. I guess that what I am trying to say to the fellas is, don’t be an asshole and help around the home. Trust me, it’s not going to fucking kill you!

I’m A Loner. So What?

Not so many people know that out of nine children that My parents had, I am the youngest one and the only boy. I remember that when I was between three and five years old, my family lived in Puerto Rico. I still remember the place, because we had a big mountain for our backyard. I remember that I used to go up the mountain all of the time and play by myself, for who knows how long, because I enjoyed it so much. As I go older, I really got to enjoy playing by myself. As a matter of fact, to me, it was something normal.

My point? I just don’t know where people got the idea that being a loner is a bad thing. I mean, being a loner doesn’t mean that I hate people and that I hate spending time with other human beings. You have to understand, that I have been a loner my whole life, but I still do socialize with others. You see, I don’t expect others to like everything that I like, so there are certain things that I like to do alone. I also like to be alone in order to be able to think and reflect on life and also to recharge. A lot of people need to do some really good research before they call someone a sociopath rather than a loner. Also, only because I am a loner, doesn’t exactly mean that I am depressed and thinking about death, it’s just that I enjoy spending time by myself. Plus I have been married for thirty years, have two adult kids and a crazy dog, in other words, even though I am a loner, I love spending time with my family.
