Happy new year to all. I hope that everyone had a new years eve party that was borderline evil in it’s devilish fun! I know I did. Yet one thing is sticking out of my mind and that is the resolution, what would be a good resolution that can be made that won’t be broken so easily? I know last year I tried to do a photo a day and that fell by the wayside quickly since I was shooting on film and am broke at the same time! So I think I came to the resolution instead of:
Be a squeaky wheel that gets the grease!
What the fuck does that mean? Does it mean that I want to be a machine of some sort and get all greasy from mechanics wanting to change my filters? Hells to the no. Is it some sort of metaphor like trying to find god? Sorry, wrong again! It basically means that I’ll be more active in being a pain in the ass to things, people and situations. Because some days you could let a moment win and take you over in a cloud of defeat, but if you decide to stand your ground and vocalize your demands…. Then to you go the spoils!
Ok, let me demonstrate an example; yesterday my phone carrier service sent me a text saying: your bill for $441.06 is ready for payment after my mini stroke and casual recovery period, I called them up and complained, merely because I’m not a 16 year old socialite little grrrl who is constantly on her phone! I was passed onto a lovely woman from India who just started her shift: Operator: can I help you? Seb: I hope you can freaking help me, help me know why the fuck I’m in debt by half a grand? Operator: so this is a billing enquiry? Seb: you better believe it!
I was put on hold instantly, and five minutes later after the annoying waiting music was burrowing into my skull, the operator appeared again with all my details. We continued to squabble about what went wrong and found out I was on a lesser plan that I destroyed so easily, and that the dicks who arranged my contract fucked up so easily that I don’t need to worry about my debt and that I should be completely OK.
So the moral? Your resolution should be something attainable and life altering, something that won’t be dismissed easily and can be a snap to contain. And with that in mind, if my resolution fuels more crazy stories in this crazy blog where shit usually hits the fan on a hilarious level…. so freaking be it! Happy New Year everyone!
