That's Life

That's life, that's what all the people say.
You're riding high in April, Shot down in May

It's interesting what happens when a clock strikes midnight. 2008 was the greatest year of my life. It's been 19 days of 2009 and I find myself listening to the Chairman on loop. At the risk of sounding like I am wallowing in self pity (because I really am) I will explain how shitty the first 2 1/2 weeks of 09 have been. I am unemployed, I missed two credit card payments this month, I stood out in the 20 degree cold for 8 hours harassing strangers only to be fired for the first time in my life, my online Spanish midterm closed when I was only half way done, I can't pay my rent, the only time I eat is when kind strangers make me food, I can't pay for the Spanish class that I am now undoubtedly failing, I missed my set at Comedy Forum, I'm doing medical studies to support myself, and a spider bit me on the face. But as Franky says, "That's life I tell ya, I can't deny it." Now I just need to find the resolve that that old Italian bastard had, "I thought of quitting baby, but my heart just ain't gonna buy it." Then again he does leave on a good point, "But if there's nothing shakin' come this here july I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die."
