Only 1 post in August. Well yeah.
Anyway, around this time I usually write something pithy about National Day and how it should be 47 instead of 53. Then I go on and on about the reasons why it should be so.
I'm not going to bother this year.
The people who know me already know how I feel about this and people who don't know can look up my older posts.
I'm not going to annoy myself by explaining why. Besides, a soapbox is only good when you have readers. And why wouldn't that be true. No one wants to follow a blog that's updated once a month anyway.
I went shopping the last few days. Finding good footwear is incredibly difficult when you're looking for something specific. I did end up buying something but it wasn't exactly what I really wanted.
At least it was cheap.
I cleared one credit card this month. I used a loan which uses my insurance policies as collateral. Low interest, flexible payment schedule, easy approval. Too bad the amount I qualified for wasn't very big.
But it helps anyhow and I should be feeling a bit more comfortable the next few months.
Comfort. One of the small things to be grateful for. As deathly quiet and lonely things get, I've been in worse places. I try to keep the perspective even as I read status updates and look at pictures of people doing and having things I failed to get.
Life is a sport. Unfortunately not everyone can turn pro.
It's hard to accept this sometimes. But I must remember that perspective.
Till next post.
