SUP BITCHES!!

Long time no… whatever this qualifies as!

It’s been almost a year since I posted anything here, what the fuuuuuuck? Since no one wants to read a post three miles long, here’s my last year in brief notes.

Education

Got screwed over a bit by my school administration (TWICE!!), so I’m currently not done with my bachelor’s, since I was missing 7.5 ECTS points (a semester elective) to be able to graduate. I’m currently doing that and should be done around early or mid May.

Work

True story

Shut up, it’s an improvement!

One of my part-time jobs turned into a full-time job, and I managed to work my way up from a being paper-pusher to being a full-blown manager (say whaaaaaaaat!?), who suits up and goes to investor meetings with huge banks and multinational conglomerates – that I’m not allowed to name as per my contract – to help close deals worth millions and millions of kroner.

That’s like fucking insane! Obviously, my efforts only amount to maybe 5-10% of the deal, but it’s often the make or break moment, so the pressure is definitely on. But seriously, that feeling when you’ve helped close a deal worth millions is such a major high, that you can feel it tingling in your body for hours after!

Inversely, when you fuck up and lose the deal, it’s also a MAJOR kick in the balls, lulz. Further, I had to have a complete image make-over, because if you want a company to invest a million bucks, you need to LOOK like a million bucks, so out with t-shirts, beards, and unkept hair – in with the sexy, the shirts, the clean-shaven face (save for the trademark soul patch), and hairstyling.

Relationship

True story

True story

Broke up with Nashayla because stuff just wasn’t working out between us. We were gonna break up anyway when she was supposed to go to Japan for 2 years (last August) to study for her master’s, which I was cool with as long as we could spend the last few months together to make the best of the time we had left.

She responded by shutting me out and and playing online games 16 hours per day, which made me feel pretty miserable. After about two months of that, I had had enough and gave her the choice between reducing the amount of time she spent on the game by half or we were over – her reaction was to shut the door on me and continue playing, lulz XD

Last I heard from her family, she’s still addicted to the game and she never left for Japan, but has been lying to everyone pretending that she’s there, even going as far as lying about her sister being hospitalized, when people saw her and asked how come she was in Denmark. I dunno if she quit her education in order to be able to keep playing.

I have been dating a few girls since though, so no hard feelings on my part. I was pretty pissed at first, but later realized that it wasn’t worth the energy being mad at the world, so I moved on and often joke about it now. Also, I’m seeing a really sweet girl at the moment, but more on that some other time (maybe) ;P

Health

True story

Post-op; my eyes are open, honest!

Around the same time as I broke up with Nashayla, my momz had an acute myocardial infarction (sudden heart attack), and nearly died. She spent about a week in the hospital, where she also had a minor procedure done (she had a stent implanted), and was then released.

She’s currently doing a lot better, but is probably gonna be on meds for the rest of her life, which sucks donkey balls.

Not long after that, it was my turn to almost die. Because of all the stress of work, Nashayla, and my momz, I hadn’t been taking very good care of myself, to the point that I practically didn’t eat or sleep any more. I lost about 20 kg in the span of 6 months, most of which was muscle that had just atrophied away.

Doctors initially thought I had developed sudden onset lymph cancer, which freaked the fuck out of my family, who’d start crying whenever they called. The tests came back negative, and doctors concluded that the causes were overwork, lack of rest, and malnourishment, but by then, my body was in such a sad state that I needed immediate surgery, since an old surgery wound in my stomach had opened, spilling my intestines.

The surgery had complications, and I almost bleed out internally, but managed to get home in time for Christmas, though I was confined to my bed for an additional two or three weeks. I’m doing a lot better now, but I’ll be stuck in physical therapy until at least August (sigh…)

Perspective of life

Turned 25 years old during last summer – woot woot – and it makes me feel like an old man being old; pondering stuff like when am I gonna get married, have kids, what have I accomplished with life, and have I been everything I could be and done everything I could do. The answer was no, which was kinda depressing, but figured fuck that, better start now then!

That, coupled with all the other shit that had gone on since last summer, made me reach out to a lot of my old friends and also prepare myself mentally and financially for in case something was to happen to me again, so I now have a life-insurance with my mom as the beneficiary, so she can get by :)

Final words of wisdom

Living every day as if it were your last is BS, and just leads to taking pointless risks while shouting “YOLO!

Live every day as if it were your second last – get your shit in order, prepare for the worst, spend time with those you love, and get up in the morning saying “I’m gonna be all I can be, so if I were to close my eyes tonight and never wake up again, I can leave with no regrets, but if I do, I can be proud of the person looking back in the mirror.

That’s all from me – I’m out!
