Happy New year to all. Yeah, when I woke up the next afternoon it was a night that I rather not put into print nor take the pictures and place them on any social media site. With that said hopefully there is less aggravating bull shit thanks to this crappy burb this year or the rest of it. The traffic was great at 3am I wish Oak Park, il was like that every day but alas wishes are fishes.
We took a cab in case we were to be blitzed to drive one of the only smart decisions we made. But if you get home without getting mugged, passing out in a pool of your own puke, etc., You have won the gold medal for New Year’s Eve partying, drinking and stinking.
Again, I do not remember too much about Nye in Oak Park as I spent it downtown with friends, but what I do remember was that the traffic was great. Probably because of the puritan atmosphere of the village that is projected but it was dark and dead in the village making the rest of the trip back easy and less expensive. Happy New year indeed.
I really get bored looking at the “feel good” stories on television or the holiday bull shit. Not that I am bah humbug or am disrespectful towards Christmas I just hate being told that I have to be positive because it is a certain time of year. Ugh just leave me the hell alone in my misery if that’s where I want to be.
One thing I do not own and activity I will never participate in is the ugly sweater contest. Never. I am just like that lol. But I am in a get it done mode, and I am still drained I guess emotionally too from graduation I finally slept a whole eight hours Saturday. And even though it was Friday shit ain’t stopping me from working on the next steps of moving career wise and location wise.
he smiles from the fam made it all worth it, however I am still a bitter bitch. And if I want to I will be the dictionary or urban dictionary’s definition of a petty bitch if I want to. There is no need to change the formula of what keeps me successful and that is a plate of bitchiness and a side of saltiness. No matter what the holiday.
Yeah I have been busy after October I needed a break, the cubs went down in flames really fast in the playoffs then I got dragged to the series. Only to be bored to death, and suckered into trick or treating with my nieces and nephews around Oak Park, IL. Oh, then I have classes I doubled up this time to get done with my degree because Roosevelt university likes to fuck up your financial aid if not that your class schedule is screwed up to the point you have to wait a year to take one fucking class. No, I am not kidding and I am going to Roosevelt online! It is the dumbest shit ever.
So obviously with work, two classes and oh instructors who have no idea what is going then add your fellow students who write at a third grade or can only manage one sentence. I am not the brightest crayon in the box but come on! Therefore, you can understand my focus on getting that shit done, and putting the blog on the back burner. When you are dealing with an influx of stupidity it gets hard to multitask but I will be back.
For those of you celebrating thanksgiving: Happy thanksgiving!
For those of you not celebrating it for any reason I do not blame you. I have tons of work to do for third module projects and final projects that going to an uncomfortable get together with family to eat dry turkey and to look, not eat, green bean casserole is definitely out the cards.
I simply do not even have the energy to commit to their nonsense and finish my degree plan. Its either focus on the end of two years’ worth of work, or dealing with another year of relatives asking “aren’t you done with school yet?” Sorry, but I trying to get somewhere on life lol and that in the end is what I will be thankful for.
Just a quick hello, and Merry Christmas to all my Christians readers but also a Happy Holidays to everyone else of different faiths as well! Please enjoy this day as peacefully as you can and I hope you find some joy in today, and in the upcoming new year!
I will still have some new stuff to post when the holiday season winds down, BUT I have some more crazy rants already scheduled to finish out the year. Thank you for reading and have a great holiday season!
I found some stuff that will help bring cheer or freak out the residents of Oak Park. Il during the Christmas season like the legend of Krampus to the original A Christmas Carol movie, I plan to add this to the free E-books on the season and making Holiday crafts that I found online I am going to add it all together to make everyone at the holiday party crazy.
Because all they want to do is talk and shit and sit around with kids running around up your ass, plus they don’t want to have strong drinks like tequila “because of the kids” but tell you that while holding a glass of wine. (((SIGH)))
This little bit of information will freak the kids screwing up their minds forever:
Santa’s Horned Helper: The Fearsome Legend of Krampus, Christmas Punisher http://www.ancient-origins.net/myths-legends/santa-s-horned-helper-fearsome-legend-krampus-christmas-punisher-004799
OR you can do the video thing from YouTube for those kids with ADHD:
The Life and Times of Krampus by Andreas Ziebart which explains the whole legend https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlSa922DgNY
This is the link to a Christmas classic movie of the Charles Dickens novel called “A Christmas Carol” but add this with the Krampus stuff, and you will have the kids paranoid for next year! Nothing like putting a little terror in their hearts.
A Christmas Carol (1951, HD) Alastair Sim as Scrooge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4FAeH1qOgI&feature=share
I was looking up traffic for the Christmas Holiday around Oak Park, Il to get a feel for how it is to drive on the Eisenhower, and I saw that they might add toll roads to it? It’s hard enough to get around the city as is, so some greedy ass lawmaker wants to make a profit off it? Geez, no wonder why people leave this area in droves!
Then I saw that the Mayor of Oak Park, IL wants to add ANOTHER round of vote regarding noise dampening walls as construction may begin in 2017. There is just enough bullshit I could deal with this guy if I owned a home here and thank God I do not because he and the rest of the officials in Oak Park, IL ask the people what they think about this wall project, about the pool project and when the residents say “NO!” these fucking idiots want to ask again!!!!
It is like these fools do not understand the meaning of “NO” like they are stalkers, rapists, or really bad insurance salesmen, no means no, so move on! Not in Oak Park, IL where they will push and push until they tax YOUR income until they get THEIR way and THEIR vision of what Oak Park, IL is.
When you think of the taxes involved and the amount of money you pay for the property here, you would think you would be treated better than a 5-year-old kid, some people like telling them what to do, what to believe and how they should pay taxes without PROPER representation of what they want. It’s good we are warming back up to Russia because Oak Park, Il is going to fit right in, the rest of us who say “NO!” to this type of shit, we’re Americans.
Here’s the link to the article talking about the Eisenhower changes, the proposed tolls and the non-American mayor of Oak park, IL who wants to do what he wants: http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/oak-park/news/ct-oak-interstate-290-tl-1222-20161215-story.html
I have a niece that reads a lot, in fact, that’s all she does, barely talks and shit. so I was looking online for fee E-books of the holidays to give her something more to do, otherwise, she is asking me all the metaphysical questions during the holiday, ugh.
So I found a list online that listed a bunch of old books that the Project Gutenberg made into E-books (I believe) and posted online for free. But I found an extra 5 E-books to round out the total for the holiday, and give her a LOT to do as the holiday comes around. I have the hyperlinks listed as the title and then the author enjoy and download away its free!
