I barely got anything for Jesusmas this year, especially compared to my mostly spoiled Jmas's of yore, and yet it was my happiest in years. Maybe it was just because I woke up still buzzed after a night of not-out-of-control partying... not a bad hangover type of waking up, but rather a nice pleasant afterglow sort of thing... but anyway, my mood was a nice mixture of happy and energetic (at least, what would be considered energetic for someone so immensely laid back as myself) and jokingness (I was so on today man, and my style of humor is usually too wack for those family members) and some other positive mood qualities.
Maybe it was just because it was relief from the bad times several people I'm close to have been having this happy happy holidays season. Money problems, car crashes, a lost job, severe medical problems of a friend of some friends...
I'm most likely going to be hired as a telemarketer in a couple weeks. But not just any telemarketer, but a bastard that's going to try to make people feel sorry and donate to charities. It's funny, I'm like the shyest and most non-talking person I know, and here I'll be talking for 4 hours straight (luckily they're short shifts) trying to convince people...
But then again, I just took a speech class, and I ended up being one of the best speechgivers... Adding dollops of funny onto the apple pie of my speeches apparently covered up my nervous shaking and long pauses of trying to think about what I'm doing... It didn't take long before everyone was expecting something humorous to emanate from my speech-giving practices on a regular basis.
And it's also funny... I know so many people that work there already. My cousin (who've I've always been really best-friends type of close with), one of my rapper pals, the roommate of said rapper pal, a not-close-but-still-cool friend, the sister of my other rapper pal (the same gal I had a little 'thing' for from the college cafe shop due to misread signals about a year or so back), an ex-girlfriend I haven't seen in like 10 years, a rapper that my rapper pals have done shows with, the mother of a different rapper my rapper pals have done shows with... plus there's more people that I don't know, but are connected in various ways with the people I do know there... and along with a couple other people that aren't coming to mind at the moment, my other rapper pal's girlfriend used to work there...
Yeah, I've been having lots and lots of weird coincidences lately. As in... eh, the past year? Largely along the lines of people from my past, whether former good friends or just minor acquaintances, coming back into my life in weird ways... Then having all these connections between them. Like 2 unrelated people from different parts of my former life both knowing a third person, yet not knowing each other... or how about how I discovered that one person I slightly knew before is dating another person I slightly knew before (one of which is one of those telemarketing folks), and both of them end up knowing my close rapper pals... so it's 3 different people/groups that I know that ended up all knowing each other... or the most recent one, in which Pal told me how he first met a certain former classmate (which I didn't know he knew (more weird coincidence material there)), then the very next day, I get a message from her on myspace. And now it seems we may become neat real-life friends... she's already willing to try singing for my "band" (aka, me and my guitar) just for fun, even though she can't really sing.
And for one little non-it's-a-small-world coincidence... Have you ever been driving around, or parked somewhere, or whatever, at night, and a streetlight or something turns off as you go by? Yeah, well... that happened a bunch of times in a short period of time. Like 5-6 times in one week or week and a half or something like that.
I think maybe all this is that God person's way of telling me something... like maybe... to cut people?.......
Yes, that is it! If I rage around cutting people in a random manner, I will become a minor divinity and ascend to the heavens to sit and play backgammon with God without all this mucking about through Life! I have a feeling that the remainder of my days will be crammed gloriously full, like 2 abnormally large penii being inserted simultaneously into the anus of one in-desperate-need-of-money amateur pornstar, of cheerfully gushing blood and gently swaying exposed organs!
Tomorrow I'm going to try and record some songs at Friend's Boyfriend's crib. Yay.
I'm thinking about possibly taking a break from college for this next term. Yay?
