Well that turned out to be a big disappointment didn’t it? Not like any of us actually expected the world to come to an end and for humanity to be wiped out but it still would have been nice if it did happen.
Things would have been so much simpler if we were all dead; no more work, no more being tired, no more money problems but I suppose we’ll just have to push on until the next time the worlds being predicted to end, or at least until the American’s blow us all up.
I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas; mine was so-so. It’s just not as special for me as an adult any more, back when I was a child I used to be so excited I was unable to sleep, trying to listen out for Santa’s sleigh bells and wondered how he’d get in the house considering our chimney was blocked. I used to set out cookies and milk and in the morning the livingroom would be littered in presents, such a magical time of year.
Now 20 or so years on it’s just an excuse to go out and kill a few braincells with the help of alcohol and of course after an extremely boring afternoon at work (three calls in four hours?) boy did I need it. I got pretty lashed on Christmas Eve, drinking God knows how many shots of whiskey due to drinking games then woke up Christmas day around 10am feeling awful. I stared at the ceiling for about an hour before I moved.
I opened the presents, mainly consisting of cash (my favourite word) and a new SatNav then it was back to bed for another snooze before having a lazy day and then back on the alcohol.
Now all we have to look forward to is New Years Eve and it that’s that done for another year.
Looking back over the last year, I can say it’s been somewhat better than last year but definitely still shit. Having it all at the beginning of the year, I ended up losing my woman, my job and my new flat in a matter of days by May, then the next four months just sort of flew by as I constantly tried to get another job but didn’t end up doing so until September.
Though the four months were filled with much drinking, partying, Olympics and Leeds Festival so it wasn’t a total waste though my banks only just now recovering.
On a brighter note at least I’ll be starting 2013 employed, started off with the company with a bit of a rocky start but I’ve found my footing I think.
Plans for 2013 consist of remaining employed for as long as possible, save money, move to Australia, find another job involving Australian’s and last but not least, getting a novel published.
What are your plans for 2013? Did you get any good swag this Christmas? Are you as disappointed about the world not ending as I am?
