Sometimes You Just Have To Stay In

The last two days I've kind of just stayed in after work.  I mean, I did enough running around this past weekend, and I have a 5K on Sunday.  Although, my legs hurt, I think I have shin splints or something.

Oh well, I might just be walking the 5K this Sunday instead of running it.

You know, the thing is, I don't mind staying in.  I actually enjoy it.  Here's my thing, it's kind of a shitty world out there to be honest.

I mean, just turn on the news... It's all filled with bad news and crazy people that are scary and scare the heck out of me.  Why even bother to go out into that mess?

I'd rather come home, do a little bit of work around the house, make food, and then lounge.

This is kind of one of the problems with dating that I've found.  I'll start a conversation on a dating site and she'll kind of start talking about her next trip.... Which is cool and all, don't get me wrong, it's great for people who like it...

But I'm more looking for like what I had in college, where we just basically hung out every night and ate pizza and watched movies.


I miss college, and dating in college.  It was just sooooooo much easier.  A "big trip" was going to the local Sheetz to get a late night snack.

THAT's the kind of relationship I want.

I don't know, there's just WAAAY too much push to globe trot.  It's just not me.  Like I said, it is for some people... Or apparently for most people, or pretty much everyone, but, I guess I just prefer to stay local.

Anyway we usually get to the point in the conversation where she really wants a guy who will travel 6+ times a year with her, Barcelona is the current conversation.  She's currently there and she's like already planning her next trip.

I guess I just am not of that caliber of a guy where I feel the need.  I'm good just throwing on some T-Shirt and Jeans and heading to the local bar for a craft beer and catching some small cover band play a couple of tunes.

I'm just not high society.  I'm just... Local guy, hang out at a dive bar with regular working class folk.

Ah, what can you do I guess....

Anyway, so, it is what it is.

That's my latest view on life, not much I can do about anything, so, I'm just along for the ride really.  Life takes control and I just let the world around me whip me to and fro in this little kayak that I'm in while I ride the rapids.

What's next?  Who knows.  Probably more shit.  There's always shit.  Life is kind of like... People being mean to you, yelling at you, hating you, telling you that you suck, never being good enough for anything or anyone... and then after like 60 to 100 ish years... You die.

That's just how it works.  It's not a fun thing, it's not a glorious thing, it's just a lot of mean people and shitty situations followed by one day croaking.

And in between, there's good beer.

So, here's to some good beer between all the shit that happens.

To be honest? I hate life, it's really not fun at all.  But what can you do you know?  You just kind of keep going one day to the next and see what other shitty situation or person life brings to you.

You can HOPE something good is around the bend, but... Hah!  Hahahaha... Don't make me laugh.  There's nothing but mean people and bad shit around every nightmarish twist and turn we call life.  People suck, the world sucks, no one every gets enough sleep, and then we all die.

Anyways, here's to that short time when you can sit between the shit and enjoy a beer before the next shitstorm comes your way and the next aggressive person trying to attack and take advantage of you and fuck with you and fuck you over, there's always someone out there, a mean person with hatred in their soul trying to take advantage, manipulate, belittle, or basically rob/cheat/steal/destroy us all, just evil people walking the planet looking for their next person to screw over and attack and force their aggression on... But what can we do, not really much at all but just let the shit fall all over your face and keep on keeping on... That's life, what a fucked up thing we were all forced into.  Just sit back, wait it out, and see which evil person tries to screw me over next.

Ah life... In the words of the band The Offspring...

"This is life
What a fucked up thing we do
What a nightmare come true
Or a playground if we choose
And I choose"
Anyway, tomorrow night I'll be heading out for a few... So I mean, I go out sometimes... Just have to keep your eye open.  Not everyone is crazy... there's a few okay people out there in the world... Just have to dodge the crazies to get to the normals.  That's really what life is all about, dodging the crazies to get to the normal ones.  Ah life.  At least there's never a dull moment I suppose.
