What’s real life like?

Two jobs and shift work has turned me into a special character. I sleep in four hour shifts, regardless of the time of day and often feel drugged and dirty even after I just showered. I now fear the sunshine and have lost my ability to love. I am being a bit over dramatic perhaps but I am starting to feel like one of these fellows. A little make up, a pressure washer and some coffee and I’ll be fine!

Dear Hockey,Thank you!

I’m not the biggest fan but what I do like is beards! Wonderful glorious manly beards! Thankfully hockey is watched by superstitious males who can grow these things in abundance. Bring it on play offs! Bring on the face sweaters!

Nothing is certain but death and taxes.

Most people despise the tax season. I, unlike most of my home owning, family raising, multiple car insuring, financially responsible friends, live on the brink of poverty. Okay, that’s not true, but I have no assets, I own nothing, and I have some how spent the majority of the last decade educating myself and sporadically maintaining employment when I start feeling a financial pinch. I can do well living off of very little and I miraculously recovered from my credit destroying early 20’s where I thought if you moved you didn’t have to pay your bills anymore. This semester is rounding up soon, and usually I panic and run away to some isolated location to rake in some cash. This year I got a job in town, in fact I have a couple of them! They are social work related and I am excited about the prospect of having a settled life! Because of my previous gypsy ways, I often have to track down T4’s from across the province, like a private investigator. This year I have 5 and 4 of those are in my immediate possession and the remaining rogue T4 is on route! I am thankful for the technology that allows me to do my taxes with out knowing how to do long division and I am also thankful that I am just poor enough and go school enough to get a chunk of change back from the government. Thank you Government of Canada for realizing that I will one day produce revenue worthy of withholding from me for social programs but this year is not the year! The visa has seasonal affects disorder and needs help to bounce back for spring.

UPDATE: With my 5th and final t-4 I have magically been bumped into the “no fun” tax bracket where I contribute to the government just like every one else. Well, I guess that’s a first world problem I can handle. Such is life!

Some times you eat the bar….

It’s a well known fact that the Big Lebowski is one of the best movies ever made. I think it might even be written in the bible somewhere. That little phrase from the movie replays in my head, in Sam Elliott’s voice every “less than successful” day in my life. I am presently attending school full time which I am stoked about, but I find myself once again fearing for my future, doing midterms and dealing with the fun little curve balls life throws at you to keep you humble and honest. I also experienced a 3 day hang over last week which reminded me I am not nearly as young, pretty, funny or smart as I think I am. World-1. Carly-0. But the game aint over. Some times when I am on a roller coaster of emotions I like to play some good ol’ soul classics. It makes my butt wiggle and forces me to sing into wooden spoons and other kitchen utensils which inevitably reminds me life is pretty awesome, to pull up my panties, and quit being a princess.

eat that bar!

The youth of middle age.

It’s no longer deniable. I am in my 30’s. I found my first grey hair last week. It was bound to happen and yes, as you can tell from my poorly executed photo montage I now have glasses. I haven’t been ID’ed since the Summer, people call me lady and finally in September after over 15 years of peircings took out my lip ring. I used to look up concerts on the internet, now I look up recipes for gluten free protein bars. I was working in a Starbucks today (27 year old Carly would have rather been shot than admit that) and found that the music was to loud and distracting. Too much dairy upsets my stomach and a glass of wine now makes me tipsy. I get really excited when I make a good soup and when people compliment an article of clothing I am wearing, instead of saying thank you, I tell them how cheap it was and where I got it. I am pretty sure 27 year old Carly wouldn’t have 31 year old Carly on her list of fun weekend friends. The great thing about 31 year old Carly, that the 27 year old Carly didn’t have going for her is that she finally knows what she wants, she listens to her instincts more, and is kinder to others and herself. I’m feeling pretty good about this decade. I have more than I need and I am determined to take this aging thing well. I got me some good wrinkle cream and if another one of those little buggers pops up I will do my best to celebrate it an pretend its filled with wisdom… bad life choices and wisdom.
