Before I dive head first into this blog post, here’s a quick update on the “Life of Marshall”
What can I say? September wasn’t good, like usual. In my book, September is a dog shit month. Its a month where you realize that summer is truly over and weather turns to shit. It doesn’t measure up to the months that follow.
October has Halloween
November has Thanksgiving
December has Christmas and New Years
Without a doubt, If you have a September birthday you’re probably a distant relative to Hitler. If you think I’m wrong go ahead and message me and we’ll pull up Ancestory.com.
But my point is that I just had one of those months where everything that could go wrong, did. You ever have one of those days where you’re like, “Fuck, what else can happen?” Then literally 5 seconds after you think that a bird shits on your head. Well imagine that happening 3 times a week for a whole month.
But right now, as I sit in my bed at 5:30 AM, watching The Heat, and eating a PB&J. I feel like the worst is over. But who knows, it’s only the 22nd and there’s still a bunch of birds flying around. We’ll just have to see.
Great intro to my topic I know.
What’s your why?
Why do people go through so much shit?
Why do people go through so many trials and tribulations?
Why do people get up out their beds in the morning just to do it all over again?
Before I get into it, my “Why” is hella selfish. Most people do these things for their family, or their career, and all that jazz. But I’m gonna be living by myself here soon. And I have all my life to worry about my career. So I’m going to spend some time (Couple years) worrying about myself.
I’m a simple man with even simpler taste.
This time next month I want to be fully moved into my new apartment. Got a sexy ass place with 2 bedrooms, nice kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms. More like 1 bedroom, 1 game room, place to eat, and shower. That’s my idea of a place where I can come home and truly relax. My jobs will consist of me working all morning and a few nights. Working 3 years at the bar has me up all hours of the night these days so a night job makes sense. Still doing my One Meal a Day program. I’m thinking about making videos of what I make and eating it. Literally can become famous doing anything these days. Going to get a gym membership at planet fitness and hopefully stay on my workout schedule.
But do you want to know what really gets me excited? The thought of getting off from work, in a new place that I’ve never been before. And either going to the bar for a few cold ones with new friends. Or going to the gym and meeting new people. Because in my eyes, that’s what life is all about. The interactions you have with people, making new memories, MEETING NEW PEOPLE, vibing with others. That’s the stuff I live for. Simple right?
That thought alone is what gets me out of bed. It’s what makes all the struggle I go through worth it. Because, like I said, I’m a simple man with simpler taste.
So my “Why” would be simply happiness. A real Cliche I know. But I’m 23 and fresh out of college. I’ve already stressed over career moves, I’ve stressed over my weight, I’ve stressed over school, and I’m exhausted. So now I’m out here just trying to live the simple life and be happy.
I’m curious about what other people’s “why” is. So If you have one go ahead and tell me in the comment section or in a message.
