#Cultivate2014 – Die, Die, Die, Die, Die, Die, and Die!

The last few years have seemed to be a real downer for everyone. So, indulge in the whiny and get it out of the way. There are some things we just can’t move on from until we’ve spent some time burning effigies. So, that’s what we’re going to do.
Tell us about a time when you’ve been heartbroken, angry, or even just annoyed. Tell us about something you just can’t seem to let go of or get over. Spread that grievous infection all around, and thin it out. Really lay into it. We’ll all feel better in the long run.

I don’t know what kind of mad genius must have written that prompt, but he is probably someone that everyone on the planet should send $1. Mwa ha ha ha! My plan begins…

Die, Die, Die, Die, Die, Die, Die, AND DIE!

I’m having a hard time writing this post.

You would think I’d been dwelling on this moment for months, having written the prompt, but the truth is, I’m in a completely different place now than I was then.

If you want me to list the things I wish had never happened over the last couple of years, I can.  I can give you links to the horribly depressing, the self-righteous, and the irrationally angry posts I’ve written over the last few years. I suppose I could talk a little bit about depression and elation. I could spend time bragging about my accomplishments.

But, those are all the crazy things that I’m supposed to combine up before I plow my fields of 2014.

Still, it would be ethically ambiguous of me to not give you a January rant, but I think I might have wasted my best one back in December.

I think what I’m saying is that I’ve burned my effigies already. I’ve buried my bridges. I’ve sunk my battleships.

 

I’m sorry if you came here to see me be all smashy and ranty.

 

I’m too busy.

 

Being awesome.
