Time For A Change

So, I realize that I haven't posted a while, particularly on my terrible dating skills and there's a reason for that. One of my dates actually went well and I'm stickin' with it. I also realize that no one wants to read about how good someone's love life is, so that's out.
New Year's Resolution #2 (would be #3 if #1 wasn't cancelled): Don't be a pussy. Be as straight up as possible.
I'm usually a no bullshit person. I tell people what I think about them no matter what. I'm not afraid to hurt other people's feelings; I am however afraid to hurt my own feelings. Well not anymore. That's just going to hold me back from what I want, and from my other resolution to not do anything that doesn't make me happy. Sometimes to have to take risks to get what you want.
Also, I think I'm going to start writing again. I want to actually finish a novel. I'm gonna start fresh and actually finish it. I never finish anything. I'm gonna do work! Done.
This year's gonna be great.
Now, 2012 is apparently supposed to be our last year so I decided to do some research on that, just out of curiosity. Here's what I found:

  • The last official day is December 21, 2012. So we have a year, 2 days and about 8.5 hours left.
  • According to Hindu cosmology, December 21st represents "the age of darkness" or "Kali Yuga". What this means is that, in their culture, there is an imbalance in the three forces of God: Brahma (creative), Vishnu (protective) and Mahesh (destructive). The balance has apparently tilted 75% in favor of the Mahesh. The Mahesh force cannot reach over 75% or there will be a total imbalance, which will be reached by December 21st. In their minds, it is man alone that caused this damage, therefor will take out their own during a predicted World War 3. Mankind will survive, but according to the Hindu, will never be like it is now. There will be a new beginning. 
  • Salt Lake Tribune posted an article not too long ago regarding a Mayan tablet found in the Tortuguero in the Gulf coast state in Tobasco. They also referenced a new finding; a brick found at the Comalcalco. The text translates to "he will descend from the sky"; the date translating also to December 21, 2012. 
  • According to WLKY (Louisville, Kentucky), the damage has already begun; the floods in Mississippi, the tsunami in Japan, the worst outbreak of tornadoes in over 50 years. Relating to the Mayan calendar, they believed (along with the Egyptians, and Aztecs of the time) that they could gain authority and predict the future through the sky. The Mayans knew how to read the cycles of the Moon and Venus better than anyone in this time period (about 300-800 A.D.). I, for one, am a firm believer in reading the sky. 
What would you do if it was your last day on Earth?

Random Ranting

I like how when you have an injury people treat you like you have the plague. So, I have a severe burn on my knee, not a big deal, right? I guess not, because everywhere I've gone the last couple days no one will look me in the eye or talk to me. No one will even sit by me on the bus. Also, I've had my Christmas party planned for two months and this douche decided to plan a show on the same day and everyone thinks i'm a bitch for not going and being supportive. Uh, hello! I'm the one who made it in advance, not the week before! Have some class. 

Burnt knee limitations:
  • Can't stand.
  • Can't walk.
  • Can't put on pants.
  • Can't move my leg.
  • Can't bathe easily.
  • Can't go in public.
  • Can't think of a good excuse for why it's there.
  • If I work tomorrow I will die.
  • Fuck my life.
  • I need to see a doctor.

Date Number Three

So, after wimping out for a week I decided to take my own advice and just go for it... ask my co-worker out... via Facebook. Still slightly wimpy, but it gets the job done. After awkwardly asking him to a club (using far too many "uh's" and "um's" might I add) when I didn't know a single thing about him or even if he was interested, I immediately wished that I could hack into Facebook and take back the message. To my surprise, about an hour later he replied with a yes and I jumped around a very public area for far too long and nearly pissed my pants... I was just a tad bit excited. No big deal. Anyway, after running through everything in my head, he shows up and the only thing that comes to mind is, "Fuck, why did I do this? This is such an awkward first date." Which, it was awkward at first, especially after I head-butted him three times and violently threw his drink from his hand... on accident of course. Being about as graceful as a peg-legged ballerina, I naturally wanted to crawl into a hole and die. As the night progressed, I became more and more comfortable and dare I say it, enjoyed myself. Yes, he didn't puke on me or decide to randomly strip his clothes... until later that is. My "no second dates" rule may be overlooked just this once. Oh, and his name is Andrew*.

Three good things about this date:

  1. I won't have to deal with one-word conversations at work because he turned me down.
  2. I was actually nervous versus only being there because it's my resolution.
  3. He 's still talking to me, which is usually a good sign that it wasn't just a one-night stand.
Two bad things about this date:
  1. I looked like a hot mess afterwards, minus the hot.
  2. He drove away before I got in my house knowing that I didn't have a key.
