I’m always a little hesitant to talk about my life philosophy of ignoring everything that I don’t like or that’s difficult. I’m almost 60 and it hasn’t quite caught up with me yet but who knows what the future holds. The amount of shit I have tossed over the wall of tomorrow to ignore today is substantial.
Many things I could still get in trouble for. Luckily I don’t plan on running for office or buying a home so my bad credit rating and my heavy drug use won’t be an issue. There’s a certain power to being poor and that is the power to ignore debt. I timed it just right so that I was able to accumulate quite a bit of debt before I walked away and because I didn’t have a steady paycheck they weren’t able to garnish my wages or do any of the normal things. They just walked away.
When thinking about age I often say that I have enjoyed it. For the most part, being old is quite neat. It gives you a different perspective looking back on your life and the lives of people you know that the youngsters just don’t get. Our universe contains such a variety it truly is fascinating to watch analyze and think about.
Even when I’m down and depressed, the universe is still out there being cool It’s just my immediate usage of it that might suck. When I look around at other people interpreting the universe their way and navigating through the numerous scams and offers that really can be horrible, it’s still pretty neat.
I have the advantage of being somewhat intelligent combined with the fact that most of my life I’ve lived inside my head thinking about these kind of things so I definitely see the world a little bit differently. I used to think that that was my greatest employable skill. That I think differently and see things differently. I troubleshoot differently and I bet a test with a different perspective on everything. Part of that might come from the fact that I don’t think about sex every 6 seconds like the national average I am led to believe.
Sitting in my bed just now having accomplished a few things before 9:00 a.m. and flip floping between being depressed and being happy about the universe and the fact that I’m stable, have food and a roof over my head. I am free to think about the universe without guilt at this stage in my life.
