4) Just to clarify, I have not done the random hook-up for quite awhile. However, it is a good way to make you jaded; you will quickly learn you can live without those pesky STD panic attacks.
5) You now look good as a fake version of yourself: This also makes you broke, but totally worth it :)
I'm pretty sure this is where my life left off last time I wrote, so an update of what you can now look forward to if you chose to blindly follow me on my “Fuck my life!” journey?
Now I'm able to see the miracles in each day, which went missed by my heart before. The absence of my “rose-colored glasses” has in fact had the opposite affect of what I expected. I’m not angry, or lonely, or fear the horror of the future; rather, I have been opened up to acceptance and strength, I’ve gained the knowledge that love is everywhere if you're willing to see it in its purest form, that I'm destined to be happy and sad just like everyone else, and that everyone has their own battles that cannot and should not be judged.
While living in this new “Reality”, I’m starting to discover more and more about myself. I worry far less, I’ve stopped pleasing others before pleasing myself, and I don’t plan out how my whole life is going to look…
I now see that everything that happens… is just life. I have one shot at this, and it's both a beautiful and ugly thing...
RIP Uncle Ken. I love you.
