As they go, this was not the worst one ever. And definitely the best one I’ve had for the past two years! Long may it continue!
Alas. Since I was not able to pay everything last month, I’ve had to double up some payments this month. And that leaves me with almost nothing to carry me through the rest of the month. In steps the credit card. Not such a good thing, but at least I’ll be able to put petrol in the car when I need to, get stuff for the house when I need it – and not wallow in self pity because I might have a job, but I’m always broke! Fact is, if not for that card, I would have been under a few weeks ago. have to think it’s yet another mechanism to help me out when I need it most – nothing is ever just random. At least from next month I’ll not have to pay the kid’s cell phone, and I won’t have to double up anything, so I will be able to breathe easier. And every month after that it will be better and better, until, of course, I sign a contract for the Mac I so dearly want! But that’s for next year. For now, I’m just going to enjoy my spot of breathing easier, and trying to get the debt levels to a more manageable plateau.
Today was yet another good day. Neither here nor there, but I’m almost waiting for the other shoe to drop. traffic wise, or people wise, job wise – nothing has ever been quite this effortless! granted, I’m basing that experience on the hassles of the past two, going on three years, but I’m almost afraid to start believing in my good fortune just yet. They again, maybe the Universe has indeed decided to give me a bit of help, give me smooth sailing in some areas of my life. And it’s a big thing, to be employed and earning decent money. I think I’ll than my lucky stars every night, and not think of everything that can go wrong. Because I’ve proven that there are other options, that I’m not just the sum total of a job. There are many other things I can branch out to, and I can allow myself to be thankful, if never complacent.
In other news, I saw a picture on FB of these three young men. That drowned a child in boiling water while another of the group raped said child’s mother. It has to be said that the rapist and murderers were young black men, and the raped and killed people were white. And before you make me out to be a racist, I realise that not all black men are rubbish. Just as not all white people are brilliant. You get both sides of the coin everywhere. But it has to be said that white people in the suck heap have been steadily killed off. Why? Hate mostly. And the worst of it all, the ones committing the hate crimes never really lived in the old regime so you can’t say they have a reason for that hate. They are young people. But they are also poor people. And the government of the day is not really doing anything to stop the hate between black and white. No matter how much they yammer on about the Rainbow nation and Ubuntu and what else, it all boils down to people that see something they want, and hate the ones that has. And then you get the inequality we’re sitting with today. Then you get crimes being committed against the most vulnerable of people – the elderly, women and children. It worked for the British all those years ago, it will work for the Communists now. I wonder how long this will be allowed to continue before people start taking the law into their own hands. And I’m not talking militant idiots. It will be normal people that’s sick of the constant violence, tired of living behind bars like criminals. People that just wants to live their life as best they can. And I think that will eventually include black people too. of course, as has been said so often, all whities can go somewhere else. Apparently we should go back to where we came from…
Anybody in America want to help me get a Green Card? Because I’d really rather not go to Europe. Not even remotely enough sun there, I don’t speak any European language and the one I can mostly manage, Dutch, is, well, in Europe 😉 So it would seem that the States would suit me admirably. i can go and work in home Depot and stalk my dude – how’s that for forward thinking!!
Jokes aside though, I come from Africa. I’m not an import. None of my family members are imports. My forbears have been here since what, 500 years ago? Does this not make me a South African? How long do you have to stay in a place before the people accept you? I dunno. What I do know is that it might become so difficult for a whitie to stay here that they might be lucky to escape with the clothes on their back, let alone a few pieces of furniture and some clothes! Go check out the Genocide Watch pages – chilling reading.
Unless, of course, you’re a bleeding heart liberal that thinks all black people are damaged and underprivileged, and all white people are just grasping, money hungry bastards. Come to my house. Drive where I drive. Live the life I live – and then you make your decision based on facts and not just hear say.
And on that note folks, I’m signing off. Good mixed with the bad tonight. All just bits of things happening around me, so there you have it.
have a splendid evening – I’m off to the studio shortly 😉
