Pretty much just stuff going on in my strange life….


Wishing everyone a Happy New Year for 2014!

Written on December 31, 2013

Personally, I’m glad to see 2013 go.

Why?

Well, to be honest, it’s been a really bad year for me. I lost my doorman/porter job (quite unfairly, I might add) and my union didn’t even bother fighting on my behalf. I can’t even go into detail about it because I had to sign a confidentiality agreement in exchange for severance pay. I’ve even been battling a bout of depression over that situation. I will say this, however: I have made many mistakes at previous employers, and learned from those experiences. But I’ve never, ever done anything worthy of being outright fired for.

But as they say, life isn’t fair.

But I’m going to look at the bright side as well. Being unemployed, I got to spend more time with friends – who are like family to me. I’m experiencing the challenge of finding a new job, even though things are still looking rather bleak on that front. I’ve had time to sit and reflect, learn more about myself, and grow as an individual. I’ve had many new realizations about myself, and about the world we live in.

I’m still going to continue my work on 3500AD and Titanium Knights. I’m still going to work on my autobiography. I’m still going to work on this website. I’m still going to tinker with technology.

And I’m still going to be myself.

Honestly, I feel like the world wants to punish me for being who I am. For being a caring person. For being “inappropriate”. For seeing everyone as equals – not as either above or below me, but on the the same level as myself.

News flash!

There’s nothing wrong with me. Read again: Nothing.

But there is something wrong with the world – with society.

I will continue being the change I want to see in the world, despite the economic sanctions imposed upon me.

I’ve been very angry, hateful, and distrustful after losing my job.

Because I was hurt.

But it’s time to let that go. I want to be who I am.

Because I’m awesome.

And you’re awesome too.

It’s 11:52PM on New Year’s Eve. I’m drinking a glass of port. I’m enjoying myself, even though I’m by myself in front of the computer.

I’m in great company.

And so are you!

Happy New Year!

-Steve
