Haha as a cat person I can’t help but chuckle my ass off at this post by suzie81. I’m sick as hell this morning and this totally made my day. Just in time for Caturday.
The title of today’s post is a quote from one of my all time favourite comedians George Carlin during one of his many HBO specials Your All Diseased.
I mentioned a couple of posts ago that there would be some changes to my blog in the next few weeks. Inspired by George and his ability to find the humour in the world we live in, I’ve decided that each Wednesday post will be dedicated to the humorous truths we all face.
For my first post I’ve decided to share a clip of the joke that inspired this change. The world lost a great man and a modern day philosopher when George died, but his vision and message lives on.
R.I.P Mr Carlin, I miss you.

I’ve spent a good part of my life confused about who I am, who I want to be and what my contribution to the world will be? Since I was a teen I’ve been struggling with the eternal question “who do I want to be when I grow up?”. Well I’m grown up now and I’m still asking myself that same question, struggling with the same feelings and doubts about myself.
Having spent the past 2 years preparing for College so I can establish myself in a career of my choosing, finally taking my first steps towards an answer to that question. Going back and finishing off what I didn’t complete in high school was an extremely positive and uplifting experience for me. More so than I could have imagined. Though I find myself doubting the choices I made again.
I know my decisions over the past few years have been the right ones, and that I’ve made significant progress forward in my life. But I can’t help but feel like I’m still no more closer to answering that question. I’m beginning to wonder if there even is an answer. Does anyone really know who they were meant to become? I don’t know, maybe my doubts come from my risk averse personality and no matter how far I succeed I’ll doubt myself.
All I know is that I’m not happy with who I am right now. I’ve accomplished so little while I see others my age who have accomplished so much. It’s disheartening. I keep telling myself I’m destined to have more impact on the world than just taking up space. I just wish I could figure out what it was.
So I’ve been kind of going through a writers block of sorts. Been struggling to keep up with my blogging and I’m sure it’s been noticeable. I guess it’s been too much Xbox and Reddit, not enough writing/drawing time. Lol I’m a cause of my own struggles.
I’ve been tinkering around with some ideas about how I want to proceed with my blogging. Starting next week, I’ll be sharing and implementing some of theses ideas on here. I’m considering ending my weekly blogging challenge, though I’m more leaning to changing it from Wednesdays to Mondays.
So I hope you readers who still follow me can forgive me for the lameness of my writing as of recent. But in the coming weeks I’m hoping to laugh, learn and grow as a writer. Thanks for your patience and hope you enjoy the changes.
