Trying To Continue



This time of the year (usually from mid-February to about the first day of Spring) is a time that I consider the "doldrums" of the year. In my family, a disproportionate number of my relatives have died (for instance, both my parents, at least 5 aunts and uncles, and various other relatives). In addition, this time of the year tends to be the most chaotic and challenging at the U. This year, the work at the U is indeed tough. But I keep telling myself that there is roughly only one more week until Spring and things will start becoming better. I simply have to persevere.

There are 'experts' that insist that if you persevere at something you can make it happen. They are of course full of shit.

You've got to know when too hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away, know when to run.

Anyway, you aging fart, get used to people dropping like flies around you, at least if you are still here you you're not one of them, yet.

I've outlived almost everyone I cared about, yea!!! I'm the winner. :-)

Any chance that you could persevere long enough to get to the next fucking post? :-)
