Where the hell have I been? Oh, that's right-- I was trying to have a little bit of a life for the last couple weeks of 2011. Did I succeed? Meh-- who cares, the isn't my personal blog.
Back to the good stuff...
|Wrong year but I have a weird Ke$ha complex sooo....|
When you are young you get caught up in the holidays like it's the only thing in life that matters... well, because it is. (Think about it, santa is the top dog when you're a kiddo) When you grow up, you take a step back and you think, wait why the fuck do we do this?
I'm not talking about Christmas, I get that whole thing with the family awesomeness and all, but I'm talking about New Years. When you're a kid, new years eve and new years day are awesome. Why? Because there's no school no matter what day it falls on. It's the bonus on the end of a sweet winter vacation from school. But we aren't little friggin' kids anymore.
Ok, i guess my point is... why is New Years Day a holiday... for adults? On new years eve we're all "yay! new beginnings! new life! fun! motivation! woooo!" And then the next day it's like, "Eh, let's start off this new bout of motivation with a day off."
What the fuck? Procrastination to the max, much? The entire adult population randomly decided that the first day of the new year was for hangover recovery and movie watching? Way to start it off right, slackers. The best part of all of this is that every single person who was partying in Times Square, blowing paychecks and poppin' bottles... is part of the 99%. Umm, excuse me... but you have the nerve to bitch and moan, then go out and blow your money on booze that you're just going to throw up anyway, and THEN take the next day off? No, fuck you. That doesn't fly with me... if I was you parents I would smack you with your community college diploma and tell you to suck it up.
Here is a better idea... January 1st should hear by be known as Work Day. No matter if you're employed or not, on the first of the year you get off your ass and you work for 8 hours straight. I really don't care what you do, or if anyone pays you... just start off the year right. Mainly, I'm just being selfish, because I wanted to go certain places on New years day and they were closed because they were all a bunch of lazy jerks... but I feel like if everyone started practicing this then the year would start off way better for everyone. Getting something done is wayyy more motivating than sitting on the couch watching bad movies.
...Even though I didn't even post on here, nor do anything on the first day of the year, I don't think it matters because i at least THOUGHT about doing something. So pfffttt.
