Your problems are insufficient....

I really don't understand people. At all. It seems like people are stressing over the most rediculous things lately. Our economy sucks, be focused on having fun at as little cost possible, and getting your bills paid. Make sure to spend time with those you love, because you never know when they are going to be gone.

I lost a friend recently, unexpectedly. And all I can think about is that I wish we had spent more time hanging out, I wish I had known that my time with someone I've known for 15 years was going to be cut so short, at just 28 years young. But all I can do is mourn, and smile at all the great memories I have of him. The laughs, the random get togethers at Flanigans, seeing him on stage and ripping that bass...doing what he loved. But the simple truth of the matter is, as humans, we make mistakes and we have to learn from them. Don't take people for granted. If they have a problem, you try to help them. If they need a shoulder to lean on, be there.

I'm going to be losing hours at work after the new year, I've lost benefits, I'll be losing half my paycheck if I lose as many hours as I think. It's a simple fix, you readjust your life and take care of the important things. Even if it means having movie nights IN with your friends, ordering in and splitting the cost. Having a pot luck. You have to make sacrifices to survive the real world.

But mourning, that is something that is real. It's a real issue. People who budget themselves and still CAN'T make their bills. That is a real issue. People are losing their homes, vehicles...can't pay their utilities. So it aggrivates the hell out of me to sit here and listen to an ex employee whining about his wife kicking him out of his house for cheating on her. A married man, with children. Stop whining buddy, you did it to yourself. You've bragged for years about the women you pull, and you got caught. What did you expect was going to happen?

Seriously...we in general, need to get a thicker skin, and a better understanding of the important things in life. Like ourselves. Each other. Family values. Budgeting ourselves while still living our lives. And being adults about the problems we create for ourselves, fucking doing something about it other than simply whining about how unfair life is. *shrug*
