Check It Out!!!

So life has got a little hectic and I haven't had the opportunity to pay much attention to my Beating A Dead Horse blog. I know... total bummer. I will still send in some posts to this blog, but I will be sending more toward my new blog...


Yup... I love making lists on a regular basis, as you may have noticed in my past posts on this bad boy.

Have a fab day! And if you like lists, please follow my new one!!

Dancing Makes Me Happy!

The benefits of dancing are freaking awesome. End of story. I love to dance. Two step, one step, swing, dirty, hip hop, polka, head bang, jumping wildly and all those fun things.

Let me list the awesome factors:
1. Exercise
2. Coping- Dance out anger, frustrations, and worries
3. Get noticed by a hottie
4. Alcohol digests faster (I hope!)
5. Increase endorphins
6. Distraction from stress
7. Fun

I miss dancing. I have to get a good dose every once in a while. Where I live the party scene sucks. Basically if you aren’t in to hookers and blow you are not part of the “normal”. (Obviously this is a little exaggerated, but only a little.) Sad, isn’t it? I happen to avoid hookers and never tried blow, so I don’t really fit in around here. I don’t find having an addiction awesome. Personal choice.

Oh dancing, how I miss you! I hope that I can find a relationship that is as grand as a good grind on the dance floor. A rockin’ dance partner through life would be fabulous. I guess relationships are kind of like a dance, eh? If they are a good partner, things run smoothly even if the music gets rough, you both make it out alive. With a shitty dance partner there are more errors, frustrations and they step on your toes (technically abuse!).

Oh the metaphors I come up with… Where are you splendid dance companion???

OHHHHHH I GET ANGRY!!! I absolutely hate when someone tells me they are going to do something then don’t. They better have a damn good reason for thinking that it is totally ok to waste my time. I do not bail on others. I do not suddenly change plans. I do not leave people waiting around to see if I am going to bless them with my presence.

Maybe I just believe in decency.

Examples of being bailed on:
1. I will text or call you at *a specific time* to make plans and never get that call or text.
2. I will be there in 10 minutes to actually arrive 3 hours later…
3. I want to hang out with you tonight to then say actually I am going over to someone else’s place, with no invite for me too.

Sounds to me that people suck. Especially the guys I date. Maybe I should turn into a complete and utter asshole because that would mean it shouldn’t bother me when it happens to me. I would then hopefully understand in some way what it is like to treat other people badly. Is it pleasurable? Does it make people feel proud? It just hurts me. I have emotions, thoughts, ideas and limited time. I do not feel awesome when I get bailed on. I feel disrespected. So fuck them.

I am going to continue to be a good person, so that people don’t get upset with me and I can sleep at night knowing I did not disrespect someone else’s time.

Historical Week

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” –Albert Einstein

Damn! This has been a crazy week, I tell you! Let me list, as per usual, the stuff!

1. Royal Wedding- William getting it on with Kate is kind of a big deal. She is freaking hot! I say that as a straight woman and by God look at her sister! I watched most of the ceremony and I must admit that Kate looked quite lovely in her classy dress. I would have liked to see a bit more bling though. Then again, look at her freaking engagement ring, but will it match all of her outfits? I doubt it. Oh well, I saw that history in the making and I watched it LIVE!

2. Crazy Ass Snow Storm- That was stupid. You may have seen my wintery video of my recent spring. It got worse by the way after I showed the video. I watched it from the beginning to the end other than when I slept for a bit. The snow has pretty much melted now, but it sure isn’t helping our already flooded areas! Yuck.

3. Osama Dead- Hell to the yeah! Awesome news! Except there is no doubt in my mind they have a Vice Osama. Duh. But at least it is a small victory for the US army. Thanks so much to Obama for mentioned the help from the Allied troops for all of their help in Afghanistan. Oh wait; he didn’t say shit about them and I watched that speech LIVE too. Typical. Either way there are already conspiracy theories being made, but whatever? I don’t really care. I’m just going to believe that he is dead. I still want to see the photo!

4. Canadian Election- Whoop Conservative Majority!!! Now we won’t have our tax paying money put toward an election for a while. As one girl wrote on my Facebook, she can now fit the BQ and Green Party members in her civic. NDP kicked the Liberal’s ass. I watched this LIVE, as well. Freaking awesome victory. Yeah, I am a conservative voter. I was just glad that 60% of the population voted. A whole 1% more people than last time. I think the guy for my constituency is a tool, but I’m over it.

That was my week! I saw it all LIVE and I made sure I saved some pictures from the newspaper for it. Thought I’d start a history in the making album! It is amazing how much can happen across the world in such a short time. I will tell my non-existent children of these times and how cold I was in April/May 2011.

Technology Addict

“I admire anyone who rids himself of an addiction.” –Gene Tierney

Hello my blog name is “Pessioptimist” and I am a technology-aholic. You may have noticed (or probably did not notice) that I have not blogged for 2 days. My last post was in regards to the crazy ass snow storm that occurred for 2 freaking days. Just so happened to knock out my cable and internet!

Yep! Thank freaking God that I was sleeping all of the time because I would have gone absolutely bonkers. Yes, I said bonkers.

I realized in the 2 hours I had between sleeping and work that I was slowly starting to slip into a depression. A deep, dark hole of technologylessness was beginning to consume my soul. (A little dramatic, but whatever.)

List of reasons I use Internet:
1. Google anything
2. Blog
3. Facebook
4. Twitter
5. Banking
6. Watching TV
7. Downloading Music/Applications for IPod
8. Skyping
9. Finding Phone Numbers
10. Finding Locations

That is the top 10 anyways. After reading that list I kind of sound like a stalker. Woop!

Well now my internet has returned and I do not feel technologically deprived. Now I can avoid life by consuming myself in technology and to distract me from my realities. Substance abuse and gambling addictions are the same in many ways except I am not killing my liver through alcohol, destroying my lungs through smoking crack and getting totally broke by putting money into sparkling machines.

So here is my confession. I am addicted to technology. I played Angry Birds on my IPod and texted with 10 people every moment I had at home. It is everywhere around me, phones, computers, TVs, and MP3 players. I have a problem, but like any addict I will only stop when I truly feel ready.

I do have hobbies or at least things I am good at that have fallen by the wayside. So here is the beginning stage of my issue. Admitting I have a problem. I feel better already.

I’ll keep you posted on my progress. (My excuse to continue using my computer…)

***Winter Storm Warning***

Winter storm warning my ass. It is a fucking blizzard outside! Three days ago I was lying in the sun, in my bikini, on my balcony and today I had to chip ice off of my windshield after a freaking night shift. No mittens on, by the way. Didn’t think I needed them in the spring time! Good fucking morning to you too, Mother Nature.

I saw one accident happen with a van sliding into the side of the hospital rail. I almost got stuck after dropping of my co-worker at home. He had walked to work before all the snow bullshit happened. Thank-God today I will be sleeping the entire time so that I can be refreshed for my night shift tonight.

The wind is so bad right now it is literally rumbling my building and tossing branches around outside. This is APRIL 30TH!!! It is almost May! This is absolutely ridiculous! The flooding happening around here is off the charts and farmers haven’t even been able to start seeding. This is going to cause one hell of an epidemic.

This is depressing. Not impressed.

Don’t Be Crazy

“Success is the greatest revenge.” – Unknown

This is the quote I always remember when a relationship ends. I use it in general when someone makes me want to strangle them or cut their brake cables, but I use this especially when my heart is all messed up.

This section is going to recognize the importance of keeping your cool, or giving the illusion of it, when your heart is smashed by a baseball bat. (Not literally of course. If that happens go to an emergency room. ASAP)

During a break-up period you may have a variety of negative emotions, such as anger, sadness, disappointment, embarrassment, and regret. There may also be some positive ones, like relief or even happiness. The awful thing is we never know when these emotions are going to arrive and EVERY break-up is different. Unfortunately with an array of emotions occurring, a variety of destructive behaviours can arise, as well.

Tips To Avoid Seeming Insane:
1. Do not call 100 times in a day. Whether you leave messages, hang up after the first ring or talk to them every time, do NOT do this. When they or the voicemail answers “Please just f*ck off already” chances are they want you to do just that.
2. Do not leave them 100 text messages. No “I love you.” No “I miss you.” No “You are the most inconsiderate asshole on the planet and I hope you get raped by Satan.” No anything. Not for a while anyways, unless you live together and need your stuff back. Even at that, no ANGRY text messages. Anger is usually interpreted as unstable.
3. Do not camp on their lawn.
4. Do not show up at their work place/friend’s house/new partner’s place/anywhere you KNOW they are. Giving other people reason to believe that their buddy needs a restraining order against you is not the most ideal thing to do.
5. Do not engrave their name into any of your body parts. This is not flattering to them.
6. Do not hit them, yell at them or pull a gun/weapon on them. All of this is technically assault and/or harassment. Just an FYI.
7. Do not Facebook/call/text/communicate with their family. That is just creepy and totally inappropriate. Be an adult not an idiot.
8. Do not steal their belongings, keys, mail, cell phone or dog. Yeah, don’t even steal a glimpse through your binoculars you freak.
9. Do not play mind games. If you broke up with them, do not give them false hope and hurt them further. That is just mean, nasty, manipulative, stupid, rude, inconsiderate, fucked up, shitty, dumb… get my point?
10. Just leave them the F alone!

So get yourself away from your phone. Go hang out with friends or family. Read a freaking self-help book. (I recommend “It’s Called a Break-Up Because It Is Broken”- Greg Berhant) Do ANYTHING to get you back together and distracted. I don’t encourage prostitution, drugs or substance abuse though.

Just keep remembering the quote at the beginning of this submission because if you behave like a lunatic, you will be seen as a lunatic. So make your partner regret breaking-up with you by showing that you do not need them to succeed, but that you used the break-up for self-improvement. If you were the heart-breaker, they probably deserved to be dumped, so show them that you rock by not being a bitch.

SELF IMPROVEMENT IS NECESSARY FOR SUCCESS, SO DO IT. YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU TOOK THE HIGH ROAD. (…unless you are actually a psychopath and are keeping your ex in your freezer. Good luck with that.)

*This blog post is directed toward both males and females. I know the examples above seem a little extreme, but I have heard of people actually doing these things or had ex partners who have partaken in the fun. It happens. Don’t be that guy/girl.*
