Back To Good

Been all over the place with my moods lately.
Not sure what that's all about.
I'm sure it has to do with the 14 hour days.
Maybe it has to do with working out of town,
Life on the road is tough sometimes.
I miss Dr Bones, Captain Lola, and my bed.
Nothing became of the flowers I sent
Am I surprised? Not really.
That could be part of the funk.

Been getting into a lot of new music lately.
The hour to and from work gives me lots of time for that.
Out with the old and in with the new
Ain't that the truth.

Backpack Collections

On the road again--- For work this time.
I'm sad about that because I just got home to my own bed; now I'm in a camp.
I miss my cats, my apartment, and have only been gone 8 hours.
504 hours to go(at best), and I'll be home again, a little richer, a little skinnier(maybe see chart).

Got a few things on the go when I get back to Edmonton. 
Dentist being one of them, Mag course being the other. 
Thinking of going someplace warm in November as a little birthday gift to myself.

Egg Man

Sent flowers to a girl two days ago
First actual effort in a year, to get back in the dating game
I suck at the dating game, but it's time.
Not gonna make the same mistakes I made twice before.

So lots to tell ya, but as it turns out, I may have a new plan.
Of course things are trying to distract me from the said plan.
If I stray from the plan, Who knows how life will turn out?
If I stick to the plan, who knows how life will turn out?
Life is tough sometimes.

Wanted to go to Asia for the winter (for a few reasons), but mainly because I work outside and it's bloody cold here. I spent too much money on my house, so I guess I'm freezing my ass off for another winter. I'm happy I spent the money on the house, but part of me wishes I could disappear for the winter.

Been on the road working; away from my apartment.
Been in a funk mood for a while now, trying to decide where life is going or not going.
Been choosing the middle ground on everything these days; some might call it indecisive.
I like where I live, I miss where I used to live sometimes
I need to live where I live to be able to further my career, but I'm not tied there after I get my courses done and my tickets.
To be honest I decided to write this post and maybe something would become of it Now I decided I'm done writing this post

I either need a good kick in the ass or a sign

ya dig?

Little Bones

Been working like a mad man 12-13 hours a day.
I like my job, but like the pay better.
Everyday is like groundhog day LOL
I work, come home watch some tv, go to sleep, and back to work.
Repeat 7 days a week.
Like I said the $$ is awesome, so in my mind it's worth the sacrifice. It also keeps me out of the bar.

All that being said, I'm not gonna meet anyone working 84+ hours a week, so I'm gonna take some(4) days off, and go enjoy some nightlife :)

Another plus is I'm losing weight like a mofo, working all these hours and drinking wine instead of beer (at home).

Confessions Of A ...............

I've been doing a lot of stupid things lately. Not sure why?
Spending money frivolously at the pub night after night
I'm guessing it's out of boredom and lack of entertainment. I must admit though the pub is entertainment.
Maybe it's the company I keep?
Maybe it's the beers?
Gonna work on that, and get back on track.
It starts today!

Earth Rocker

Another uneventful weekend so far. I quit the job I started 2 weeks ago. Good bunch of guys work there, however it wasn't for me. Going back to the Xray business Monday. Wish me luck :)

Getting sick of the barstool prophets, but out of boredom I go anyway. I think the bartender added some drinks to my tab last night. Guess I will keep count when he is working.

Had a good chat with Mr Pancake  the other day. Was good to catch up!

Life is pretty funny sometimes. I guess when your'e in your late thirties your'e supposed to have your shit together as far as a career. I'm all over the place in my hunt for the perfect way to make income. Hopefully the new company will keep me happy for a while and I hope I can keep them happy too!

Speaking of happy, I'm going to see Clutch tomorrow night!

Yeah buddddddy!

No Reservations

Well this is the first post of 2013. I don't come here as often as I should and tonight I (for some reason or another); thought I have not been on the old blog in a long time. I'm going to try to make it here more often. Although the readers I once had probably don't come here anymore. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Who know's?

Been a rough go as most of you know over the last six months. I am no longer in the X-Ray business. Xray is the way to go for the most money and time off, however I suck at it and am finding it hard to get a job. I was working for one place that kept me quite busy, I got an offer that was too good to be true and took it. 21 days on and 21 days off. Turns out once I quit and went to this company, the offer was no longer there. I ended up working midnights for a while, and that's not where I wanted to be. The hours sucked and the guys were very condescending  to me (the new guy). Eventually they lost the contract and I was out of work.

Been living off RRSP's and my pension from the OLG (insert spit on floor motion here)! I was borderline retired LOL But it was time to get a job, and a job I got. That just reminded me of the song "I used to work at Chicago"; Don't know it? Look it up LOL

Took a trip to TBay in my time off, was good to see everyone, and visit home. I really enjoyed the drive and the Sean time to clear my head. I had company for the ride there, but the ride home was nice!

When I got back, I took a shit job doing high pressure cleaning and driving vac truck. It's not ideal however the guys at work are awesome! I re applied at the city and hope I can get back on there. I also applied at some other X-Ray companies, but no word yet.

I slept in for work today, why I don't know? It could have been the wine or the fact that I have not gotten that much sleep lately. Been worrying about many things including why I'm here working. My ideal life would be to travel and see this rock we live on. I been watching Anthony Bourdains No reservations show and it's not helping, because it just makes me want to go to the airport. Seriously love that guy!

How you doing?
