Life hit me with a couple of things today and I wanted to share.
First – I’ve become the dinosaur, the old man, the veteran, the lifer or whatever you want to call it. I’ve been working at the same place for 12 years now, same actual job for about 10 years and I see these new folks coming in and it amazes me that I was ever like they are. I remember my first day here, I wore a tie and I had one co-worker make fun of me all day because it was NOT that type of place. (That co-worker still works here but he is in rough shape but still kicking.)
My last update was 9 days ago and it’s time to get things back on track….honestly, I’ve had a decent reason though.
Yesterday, my wife and I signed the final papers and are now “homeowners” and I say that with quotes because we are basically just renting to own a house because the mortgage company is the actual owners but that is how life works; you can’t make it unless you are in debt.
4 days from now, 2017 will be half over and I’m already seeing that infamous meme- “almost half way through 2017 and I lost no weight, didn’t learn anything, haven’t made an effort to save any money and still ugly”. It seems that every year I see something like that- people who make New Year’s Resolutions but just continue to live the same life and never trying to make anything better and it made me reflect on the first half of 2017 for myself and, honestly, I was pretty damn amazed!
First… Down another pound!!!
Facebook can be such a great place and it can be such a negative place- it is what YOU make it. I’ve deleted people, removed myself from groups, unliked pages and done all that in order to get my feed where I want it.
One of the worst places on Facebook are the groups….any group…regardless of the subject matter.
So, I’m sure you have heard of people “cutting the cord” which basically means cutting off your cable and watching shows through other resources. We’ve wanted to do it for a long time because we literally HATE Time Warner Cable but it always seemed like it just really wouldn’t work.
Yesterday…we decided to go for it.
