My So Called Life


So it has been awhile and my blog has been neglected as of late. Pardon the nostalgic title but it seemed fitting since I loved the show back in the day and it has been life that has gotten in the way of my writing. Actually that is a very nice way of looking at things, another would be to say that life kicked me in junk.

You see I just started working as a shift manager at Pizza Hut about a week ago, this being the first job I could find since graduation. The problem is this is almost exactly the same job I quit five years ago when I decided to go to school and improve my life, the only real difference is I was working for Papa Johns, but in the end pizza is pizza. So basically I moved to a competitor and acquired a massive student loan debt that I must now pay off working a job that I could have had without any degree.

On top of this nearly everyone I knew before college is now out of my life because I was busy in college. Now nearly everyone I met in college is gone as well. Granted I did not expect that all the people I was associating with in school were true friends, the caliber of which would lead to life long bonds. However, I have to admit that I was hoping to have a few more than I seem to now. Thus, I am finding myself alone more and more lately which makes it that much harder to keep my spirits up.

But all is not lost. Luckily, because of my experience, I am rather good at my job so advancement is not out of the picture. I could make fairly acceptable money running my own store, although I would be working my ass off for it. Not to mention in this economy I am glad just to have a job and the ability to get my life on track. Even though it is cliché to say, things could be much worse.

Also, I am past the point in my life where I will sit back and be complacent with my surroundings. I did that for far too long, so I know that Pizza Hut will not be my final move. I have this writing thing that I really enjoy, although I am not sure where to go with it I am considering either journalism school or just writing a novel, or maybe both. The point is although I am a little late to the game at age 30 I am by no means past my prime yet and I will be making things happen one way or another.

Finally, although I feel alone at times I still do have great people in my life. I am developing the relationship with my brother now that our parents always wanted us to have, and I have no idea where I would be without my amazingly supportive mother. Despite the fact that things are changing, I still have a solid layer of bedrock to stand on.

Long story short, I am sorry that I have slacked off on this lately. Rest assured that I am gonna keep doing my thing and putting my voice out here on the inter webz. Thanks for reading this far and following my rambling mind in general. Cheers!

  1. Though your present situation is similar to your past, I think that you’re making improvements since you are set on becoming more than what you are now. I’ve known you for a good bit and, all that time, I’ve known that you were destined for great things. Don’t let the misfortune of your so-called-life get you down.
    And you have more friends than you realize. If you are worried about us disappearing, don’t be; just reach out and we’ll be there.

    1. Thanks for the support. I realize that my isolation is at times self imposed and I am trying to work on that. Although sometimes it would be nice if some of those folks who consider me a friend reached out as well. Either way I know I have a small group of folks who care about me and I need to do more to let them know I appreciate them.
