Everyone has heard the saying, “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.” A lot of people live by that philosophy. I’m not one of them. Life has given me some lemons over the years, and actually, quite a few this year alone. But, I tend to go with the philosophy of Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes. His saying is as follows, “If life gives you lemons, you sling ’em back and add a few of your own.”
Even though I know when the New Year comes around, I’ll be thinking about all the bad stuff that happened all through out the year over again, I’m thinking about it right now. Personal issues between my sister and father, and him trying to get us to ostracize her; getting screwed on my vacation/other appointments because of a twit; the IRS scam call that scared me to death; drama at the office and etc. etc.
But, I guess I also have to focus on the good things. Spending a few days with my older sister and being free; going to Cedar Point with my sibs and friends; my anime conventions; my mentor at the dentist, etc. etc. I guess in a way, I have slung my lemons back at life and told it to go f*ck itself.
And on that note, it’s been real!
