Speaking of animals, my lower half housemate decided the house we live in needed to be bug bombed. When he brought this up I was dead set against it right away. I did not want my half of the house to be doused by chemicals, nor did I want to go through the trouble of protecting all my stuff (i.e. dishes, DVD's, TV, clothes, bed, bathroom supplies, furniture, etc). I told him to spray his half and leave me alone, I like bugs. Heck, I write poetry about them! But he said if he sprayed and I didn't then all the bugs would just migrate north into my place. Grrrr! I figured he was right about that, so I caved in and we bombed this bitch just the other day.
For the past two months I have been giving 2/3 of every paycheck to pay off my past debts. It's been a struggle having to drink Bud Light instead of good local home brewed beer, or going to the bar three times a week instead of five. I still kept buying my Beefeater gin, though, because that's something I refuse to skimp on. But now I am happy to announce that I am absolutely debt free! That's right, as of today I owe zero dollars to anyone at all. I will never again buy shit that I cannot save up for. I will not fall into the American dream bullshit that gets dumped on us from birth, that same dream that suffocates us financially and binds us to the 9-5. With every major credit purchase we become slaves to the system, slaves to our employer, slaves to ourselves. Well not me, never again. I have a job that I like a lot, I make great money, I am treated well... but the idea that I can drop it all at anytime and go anywhere I want is the best feeling in the world.
Not that I ever let my past debts stop me from doing that anyway, lol. But I'm just saying..
Alright my friends, it's Friday night and I don't plan on sitting in front of this laptop any longer. I had more things I wanted to discuss, but it will have to wait. I'm on my third vodka tonic (I know what you're thinking, what happened to the gin, man?) and I'm thinking a few games of pool are in order. So I will bid you farewell and catch up with you again soon. Until next blog...
