Is it weird I like sleeping with both my windows open so I get a cold draft going in my room ?
Yes, I can still be civilized despite our shitty history. But that doesn’t mean I forgot.
It’s an honor and privilege.
But, I’m no more special than you, him, and every single person reading this right now. Just chose a job that not a lot of people would ‘apply’ for lol. Thank you but lets not forget the plenty of ‘heroes’ out there (Law enforcement, Firefighters, Medical, etc).
I don’t normally post about my personal life and what not, but I thought I’d share this with all of you.
Unfortunately, my fathers side of the family is a cluster-fuck for lack of better words. No one talks to each other, every one of them sort of went and did their own thing and gave 0 fucks about each other. Then there’s my cousin. A couple years ago I was set on establishing some sort of relationship with him. I mean, he’s family, right ? As far as my memory/knowledge served me, he’s neglected me each and every time.
Time passes and It’s come to my knowledge that his older brother squared himself away(sorta). He enlisted in the Army and is currently on his 2nd deployment. The younger one though ? Serving two life sentences in prison. I’m not going to disclose what law he broke, but use your head.. Two life sentences ? He must of done something extremely tragic. And I get these letters from him in the mail… It’s like where the fuck were you when I took initiative to be like every other civilized relative ?
Sorry, but I have no sympathy or pity towards you.
You need to strive to be better than everybody else. You don’t have to be better, but you gotta try. That’s what character is. It’s in the trying.
