I have 1 Christmassy project potentially in the works, depending on whether my sister retains anywhere near enough energy to help me with it after doing the fucktonne of other things she’s doing.
And even then, it’s not *really* all that Christmassy. Just Christmas themed.
And gods I hate the fact that I automatically capitalise the word Christmas.
This is about as Christmassy as I’m getting this year.
Oh you sassy fucks! I love you all.
And this is why they’re the best band in all of history.

if you want a nice body, go get it. if you want to become a lawyer, study your ass off. if you want nice hair, pick a style and get it done. stop being afraid and motivate yourself. find yourself. find your happiness, because it’s out there waiting for you.
Unless you’re living through a recession or are a member of any number of disadvantaged groups.
I worked my ass off throughout my education, and came out with great results, only to find nobody willing to hire me. So I’ve worked my ass off over the past 2+ years juggling work experience, volunteering, looking for work, and caring for my wife, all while having little to no money and constant stress of losing absolutely everything.
I’ve not made much, if any, progress.
Though I do think my hair looks fabulous right now.
My previous 4 posts are some of the many reasons why I’m not really happy at the moment, nor in a “Christmas” mood.
