Moving forward one shaky step at a time, Kind of like some baby hooved animal, vulnerable yet spunky

So, my trivial factory job is starting to get a little easier.  I kind of feel like an alcoholic as I move forward one day at a time, but not quite, because as I right this, I am drinking my second post-work beer, with one or two more in the immediate future.  Once again, I find myself actually drinking more frequently when I'm employed than when I'm unemployed.  Hooray, I guess.  Except I'm not binge drinking here, just having a beer or two (or four) to help be come down off the day.  Whatever works, you know, and unless I start freebasing Meth again, I need some way to come down.  And besides, Meth isn't chill, and last time I freebased it, i ended up punching a bus over due to my incredible methamphetamine muscles.

So anyways, I've been thinking how to make a better future for myself, and an idea is starting to formulate.  A lot of work is going to be involved, but ultimately worth it if I can make it work.  Also, my team the Wisconsin Badgers had their undefeated season spoiled by the Michigan State University football team again.  It was a hell of a game, and Wisconsin came back to tie it up after blowing their first quarter lead after the half.  Michigan State grabbed the ball with less than a minute left, after Wisconsin tied it up with a touchdown.  they drove past the 50 yard line, and the final play of the game, MSU's quarterback threw a hail mary back into the endzone.  Wisconsin Wide receiver Jared Abredaris was playing safety, miss timed his jump for the interception, and the man covering MSU's intended receiver swatted the ball but failed to follow through to send it to the ground.  A MSU player caught it on the one, and pushed into the endzone with no time on the clock.  Wisconsin's National Championship ambition came to an abrupt end due to luck, essentially.  I'm over it already, but I was really fucking bummed on Saturday night and all day Sunday.  But, that's football.

Here's Kurt Vile.  Been listening to his new release this week.  Pretty good.  Doesn't sound like his name, by the way.

  2. Drinking more when employed makes sense, as it helps dull the pain of long monotonous days, especially dealing with work at a factory. I feel you man!

  3. I think I would drink more if I was employed. I say the reason I don't drink is because I can't afford it. Good luck with the plan to get shit together man, you have some money now, which'll make it easier to do.
