Good afternoon everyone that has hung on with us through what I like to call, “the ridiculous dead times of the unsuccessful”. First off, I want to apologize for leaving you guys stranded for a number of days. Secondly, I want to wish everyone a happy Christmas/New Year’s Eve. Lastly, I want to tell you that 2012 is your year.
Listen, according to the Mayan Calendar, the world is going to end sometime in December of next year. So basically, that leaves us with twelve solid months of awesomeness to really make our lives what we want it to be. We at the unsuccessful wish only that each and every one of you live life on your own terms. I know it seems contradictory to our general message with this blog, however, it is my view that a job is a means to an end. It sucks, but to do the things you want in life, it takes money. It takes money to buy badass shit. It takes money to travel the world. Heck, it even takes money to buy groceries so you don’t starve (unless of course you are on EBT. Refer to our second post in November if you don’t know what that is). The point is a job is a job and we all want one so we can start doing something other than eating frozen burritos and surfing the Internet in a poorly lit bedroom.
So 2011 wasn’t the best year for you. You spent most of the year trying to make sure you could pay rent, buy groceries, and maybe go out for a drink or two on the weekends. You bailed on a date because you realized you couldn’t even afford to go to a decent sit down meal outside your house. The only thing you could ask your parents to give you for your birthday was money, and that’s lame. You banked on Christmas cards from obscure relatives, in the hopes that you could get ahead a little bit before the New Year hit. I know the feeling. It’s shit.
However, 2012 is a new year. It's time to think optimistically. Companies are going to start hiring again for the coming year. Restaurants are going to pick up again. You are going to make it work. Maybe you have to reevaluate where you want to end up at the end of next year. Maybe you have to move in with your parents for a couple months while you gear up for your next big run at success. Just make sure you do make a run at it. Sure 2011 shit all over your dreams and expectations, but we don’t even know this guy 2012. He could turn out to be pretty cool, so give him a chance.
Like I said, we have twelve months to make a bunch of money and blow it all on awesomely pointless stuff before the rapture hits. What if the Mayan Calendar is wrong and we don’t all turn to dust because the planets align twelve months from now? Who really cares? If you lived like the world was going to end, my guess is that you would get a bunch of shit done and do a lot of really amazing things. Simply put, you would have a good year.
Happy New Year to each of you!
