Sadness:  I have none.  I know, right?

In what is on the same level as the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series, Herman Cain tossing his hat back in the Republican primaries, and Paris Hilton becoming relevant without spreading her legs, the impossible has happened.

John F’n Ale has actually had a decent winter.

I won’t lie to you, it hasn’t been easy, but I’ve made some personal sacrifices.

I’m the first to tell you I’m an emotional wreck, but one of the first things I cut out are the negative people.  I have enough time managing my own mental state, thanks.

I cut out people that thought they were more important than my son.  It’s a surprise, I know, but some people actually got upset because they needed to talk and I told them I had my son.  One person told me to go fuck myself.  Yeah… peace!

Remember me?  Oh, you didn’t, did you?  That’s okay.  You’re gone, too.  I have so many other things to do than to wait for someone’s promised call that will never happen.

Without them bringing me down, I was able to focus on other things.  I’m pretty sure I’ve written about how I’m working as a ring announcer for a local wrestling company.  The Radio X show is back on a regular schedule, and I am trying to involve myself in a couple of other projects, as well.

And then there’s Teh Job.  A year in the department I’ve been in and the challenges keep on piling up – and I like it!  I look back at what I did a year earlier there, and I don’t know if I could go back to that, which is ironic since it was how well I did in that job that got me to where I am today.

All in all, looking back at all the things that happened this year, I can actually look back at 2011 and say this was a good year.

Onward and upward, 2012!

  1. Cutting negative people out of your life is always a huge step in the right direction. You don’t realize how much they bring you down until you shed that dead weight.

  2. I agree cut those people out of the picture! Off to a good new year with that… One thing I know about you is that you always put your son first, it’s good to hear that you have not stopped doing that.
