My last post of 2008.
I have been so frustrated, unmotivated, and generally depressed this past year. The dead-end job and expensive bills are threatening to destroy my sanity. And if I hear someone else besides my inner voice say, "You should be grateful for you job!", I'm going to let out a huge scream! Yes, I know I'm lucky to have steady income, but it doesn't mean I have to enjoy it, and I have come to terms with the fact that I have a right to complain and whine! SO THERE! I am human after all! So here's to 2009 and a possible new career opportunity, which means seeing the light and less procrastinating on my part. I've had semi-decent health this year, but not as good as I would've liked, so here's hoping the new year will be better in that department.
2008 was memorable in that it was the first year in a long time that I'd been to a music concert, and I ended up going to EIGHT total live shows this past year! Not bad I must say. I got to see Miguel Bosé, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Radiohead, Madonna, Luis Miguel, and Coldplay! Some big names I must say, and although a bit on the pricey side, I don't regret seeing these artists live at all, for they brought me joy and some good memories that I will cherish forever.
I thank each and every good noble person that is part of my life. My co-workers, my friends, acquaintances, my family, my bar crowd, and any others who I may not see often but somehow still manage to communicate with online or on the phone. There are some of you whom I've never met in person, yet still feel a connection to, and I don't know why or how, but I thank you for being part of my world nonetheless. This blog is something I love to do, and to read your constant feedback is very cool. A special shout out to Pooch and my puppy/aminal friends for showing me the true meaning of unconditional love.
The coming new year will be difficult. I dare not sugarcoat it for you my brethren. Challenges to this country's economic/social stability will be tough, and the world as a whole is getting more chaotic. I pray for us all, and wish you complete mental, emotional, and physical health to weather the upcoming storms; for with good health, we are practically invincible right?
We need not be afraid, for faith in a higher power or oneself will keep us afloat, regardless.
Feliz Año Nuevo 2009, and here's to the best (in my opinion) new music artist of the year:
