So We Meet Again

Posted on: 03/28/2011

I haven’t really had any inspiration these days.

Life’s surprises have kept me on my toes and my writing has been non-existent.

I meant to write about all the tragedy in Japan and, after reading countless articles, it only made me even more depressed. At this point, I figured, I may as well scrap it since it has an ongoing news story. I look forward to writing about the recovery. Japan is a strong nation and I know they will be resilient. It will be a long process, but they have overcome many hardships in the past and soon enough they will also overcome this.

In unrelated news, which you could probably care less about, I am buying a house. Even more surprising, it is the house I currently live in. This was not something I was seeking out, but circumstances have pushed me in this direction. Considering the recent financial crisis I must confess I am pretty terrified. I was able to avoid loans for college, but there is no way I can avoid a loan for this. The “M” word (mortgage) also scares me. I know it is a common part of “adult life,” but I just think the whole situation is what caught me off guard. I like to be a bit of a planner and attempting to make plans seems to be to no avail these days.  It is best to live in the present and life has definitely forced me in that direction. No need to put all this energy into plans that may never take place.

Moral of my stories:

1) No matter how crappy life gets remember it gets better. I feel fortunate I did not experience the recent events in Japan and my heart goes out to those that have.

2) All we can do is live in the present. No matter how hard we try to plan everything we can only take it as it comes.

  • fullblather: Ugh. I'm happily married but I really hate Valentine's Day and the way it feels so forced. I also hate how people make it seem like something is "wron
