Common Interests

OK my homies and homettes, last night my wife and my baby left to our country The Dominican Republic for a three week stay. I will be leaving on Friday night to join them, but I will be staying only for about ten days. To be honest, I’m happy that I’m taking this trip, but the truth is, that I wished I went someplace else, like The Grand Canyon National Park, Niagara Falls or Mount Rushmore National Memorial. The thing is, that my wife is not into visiting historical, natural or scientific places like me, so I’m just going along with her on this trip.

One thing that I promise myself was, that when I get back to New York City, I’m going to concentrate more on doing the things that I enjoy and like, even if it means doing them alone. I know that my wife and I have different common interests and I’m not going to force her or drag her into doing things that she hates, just to please me. As the old saying goes, “absence makes the heart go stronger!”.”

With that said, I’m Audi 5000 y’all!


Feeling Like Shit

OK my homies and homettes, to be honest, today is one of those days when I feel like shit. Like I’ve always said, everything stinks, nothing smells good to me. I’m sure not going to kick myself in the head, over something that I can’t control. Sometimes, dealing with my mental disorders feels like a fucking roller coaster ride, but I have come to understand, that those were the cards that I was dealt with.

It’s OK To Be A Loner

OK my homies and homettes, for a while now, I’ve been into many arguments with my wife, because I want her to do things with me like visiting museums, camping and going out to enjoy history and nature. But numerous times, she made it clear, that she’s doesn’t like doing those things. Is not that she doesn’t love me, it’s just that we as a couple and as humans, enjoy different things.

When I spoke with the person who approved my medical leave at the salt mines yesterday, he made a good point about getting out and doing things on my own. He told me, that the same thing happens with him and his wife, so from time to time, he goes out and does things that only he enjoys on his own, which he said is a good thing. He also mentioned, that I shouldn’t take the whole thing with my wife personal, which I realized was the case with me. The funny thing is, that for a long time, my shrink Dr. C, has been telling me the same thing. The thing is, that now I understand, that the problem was, that all along I have been taking it personal. So now I’m going to change my mentality and the way that I view things.

One way or another, he also did realize, that my whole life I have been a loner, but one more thing that he mentioned was, that there’s nothing wrong with being who I am, that it is OK to be a loner. Actually, he said that by being a loner, I get to enjoy things that I like on my own, without having to be rushed by someone who accompanies me and is not interested in the things that I am. To be honest, for someone who just met me for about an hour, he did made some excellent points about my mental health, but specially about my social anxiety. Next time that I see him, I will thank him for that.

The Medical Leave

OK my homies and homettes, today I had an appointment with one of the doctor’s at the salt mines and due to so many mental shit that I have been dealing with lately, I was given a medical leave until my next appointment on July 15th.

I explained to him, that even though I take my crazy meds every day and I see my shrink Dr. C on a monthly basis, I still have to deal with my Bipolar II, Depression, OCD and Social Anxiety 24/7. Talk therapy and crazy meds do help, but they can only do so much, the rest is up to me.

One Life To Live

OK my homies and homettes, I finally registered my drone with The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and I got my UAS registration number. All that is left for me to do is to print it out, since the law says, that I have to carry it with me when I’m flying it and mark my drone with the number, once I do that, I’m ready to fly. The truth is, that it really sucks that I can’t fly my drone in the public park across the street from my home. Hey! It is what it is.

As for my weekend? To be honest, I didn’t do much. As usual, I did some shopping with my wife and then I was chilling like a villain at home the rest of the weekend. Some people might think that I have a boring life, but the truth is, that I don’t like drama and none of the bullshit that comes with it. I just like to live a relaxed life. That’s the reason why I don’t get involved in OPP (Other People’s Problems). Some people might see me as being stuck up or that I think that I’m the big shit, but the reality of it all is, that I’m a nice simple person who gets along with everybody. It’s just that I don’t get involved in other people’s lives. The way that I look at it is, that I have my life to live, so why should I try to live other people’s life? In other words, I mind my own business and I stay out of other people’s business. It is as simple as that.

Flight Of My Drone

OK my homies and homettes, for father’s day, my lovely daughter gave me a drone as a gift. I previously owned a couple of remote control helicopters, but the thing about owning a drone in New York City is, that it is illegal to fly them anywhere, and I mean anywhere in Manhattan, where I live.

But first, before everything is said and done, I have pay five dollars to register my drone as The Exception for Recreational Flyers at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) website FAADroneZone for three years. Then I have to mark my aircraft with the assigned unique registration number given to me by the administration and carry proof of registration with me. Finally, I can only fly it in five specific parks in the city… remember, none in Manhattan. So that means that I have to drive about 35 minutes out to the closest park to me, which is Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, out in Queens.

But wait, there’s more! As you might know by now, The American government, never makes it easy for us civilians to enjoy anything, so they have other laws that I have to follow when flying my drone, which you can read by clicking here plus I have to download their B4Ufly App. In other words, I can become a pilot and fly a 747, before I’m able to fly my drone in New York City.
