I Promise I’m Still Alive

Probably.

Holy crap, my blog posts have been hella scarce lately.  I’m so sorry for that, truly I am.  Mostly, it’s because I’ve been very busy with work and life and the living thereof.  I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching, and a lot of healing in the mind and the heart.

You see, up until very recently, I’ve been completely content to let myself be pushed around.  And if I’m being totally honest here, it’s really my own fault.  In a way, I was being selfish.  I didn’t want to give up that image of myself, that martyr I thought I was.  But truthfully, I was just harming myself and the ones around me.  I wasn’t making things better or helping anyone, really.

So, I’m moving on.  I’m building a better future.  I’m trying my best every day to see things as they are, but brighter.  I can’t let myself fall into that funk again, because it was doing no one any good.

Here’s to hoping.

Concerning Our Shit World

I just wanted to put a brief note out there.  I understand fully that it’s small consolation and probably no help at all.  But guys, no matter what you’re going through, no matter how scared the day’s politics and chaos makes you, you are not alone.  I love you.  I don’t know you, but I love you, and I’m here if you ever need someone to talk to.  You know how to email me.  All I ask is you are there for someone else in turn, because no one wants to be left in the dark.

Thank you,

-Lost.

In the Life of a Lonesome, Half-Mad College Student

I will start off by saying, “College is f*cking weird.”  Between trying to keep financial loans, trying to keep a roof over one’s head, and the actual studying thereof, I’ve discovered that I may not know how to breathe!  And that was only the first two semesters. Continue reading

The Sound of Cricket

So I’m sure you’ve already heard at least a brief mention of the nationwide outage for Cricket wireless.  Literally hundreds of annoyed customers are ranting on social media about it, indignant and inconvenienced by the loss.  Personally, I was about two seconds away from being convinced of an impending apocalypse before I found out what actually happened.

The truth isn’t nearly as dramatic, of course, but Cricket really needs to get their shit together.  Either fix the problem immediately or figure out a way to compensate your customers, people, because otherwise you’re seriously going to lose a ton of money from this.

This sort of catastrophe is a company ending deal.  In fact, businesses have gone belly up for less, and I’m not even exaggerating.  Seriously, they may as well just rename the company The Titanic.

Regardless, the information provided by the company on this incident is rather limited, their press releases vague and unhelpful, their efforts to solve the issue in all appearances nonexistent.  I’m not impressed.

However, my feelings on the matter can be summed up in four simple words,

“What the fuck, Cricket?”

Update
Well it’s fixed now, but I’m not sure if I have to look forward to repeat performances…

Comings and Goings

Well.  Milla – my EX – and her lying sack of a dick wad Lupo are no longer living with us.  Oberyn is still a permanent fixture, to my chagrin some days.  Also, we have two new roommates, Lord Aradonn of Falconrose and his lady consort, the Sagess.  Both are old friends of the family and quite welcome- even if, occasionally, one of us wants to throttle either one of them (*cough*Aine*cough*).
