the cycle

by Alan Ominous

So, as usual, I got 400 ideas, plans etc. I got at least a dozen projects going. Half a dozen deals. On top of work, family obligations.

Why do I do this? Constantly emulating progress. As if the next step will finally fill this void…

I find myself daily thinking if I could just “X” then it’d be better. Then I remind myself it won’t. It’ll be the same just different, so I should kill myself.

Pretty much my inner voice lately, yeah I could do…. or you know, just die.

Alan Ominous, Your making progress, keep thinking and never be afraid to change your mind on thing’s. i like your ideas, even though we kid around. 🙂

Alan Ominous 4/5/2016 - 9:19 pm

Yeah, I like my ideas. Seriously though. I always have so many things going, I practically have a undocumented pawn shop. I change directions every 3-5 minutes.

I have typed and deleted my comment several times now. So I will just say that I understand the “same just different” remark.

Alan, I’m sorry to hear this. But if it helps any, I don’t think that you can know for sure that a plan won’t work until you try it.

Alan Ominous 4/5/2016 - 9:44 pm

I’m not even just saying a “plan”. I have so many deals, like, I’ve convinced myself I need a jeep. I know I’ll get one. I’ll get one without spending $1.,but it won’t make me happy. I always get what I want. It’s never what I wanted though. So, regardless what plans I make, what things I change it just never fixes anything.

A Jeep Wrangler, or some other model?

Alan Ominous 4/5/2016 - 9:57 pm

Wrangler for sure

Morris 4/5/2016 - 10:05 pm

Yeah, they’re great. I had a ’98 Wrangler and popped a tire off-roading the very 1st day I bought it. Ha. It’s great taking the top off too.

There’s a huge aftermarket for Jeeps too. You can dump some serious $ on ’em, it depends on how much you want to customize. Also, my insurance went way up after buying that Jeep. Apparently Wrangler owners are notorious for flipping their vehicles and/or causing damage, then filing a claim.

Yeah… I got a sports car now, so I’m not anticipating much in insurance change.

I know the aftermarket is huge, I’m not a fan of lifts, the whole rollover thing. Figure some nice all terrain rubber. Like to have hard and soft tops. Basically keep it 99% stock.

And on top of all these other obligations, there is also the stalker gig.
You are a busy person.

Alan Ominous 4/5/2016 - 10:30 pm

At least I enjoy that… if I don’t stalk you who will? Also I got the “message” you clearly left me…

Cordless 4/5/2016 - 10:35 pm

You noticed!

Cordless 4/5/2016 - 10:39 pm

Somehow I imagine you having one of those big rectangle tupperware containers with you as you drive from state to state, and it’s full of all the stalker things you’ve pilfered from the trash.
I picture you occasionally pulling over for a rest stop or a snack… and before you get back on the road again, you pull a random item out of the box and take a big long SNIFFFF.

Which reminds me, I haven’t been able to find my favorite bra for a few weeks now.

Alan Ominous 4/5/2016 - 10:47 pm

I’ll be through around Thursday. It’ll be behind the hamper.

Cordless 4/5/2016 - 11:01 pm

I’ll be gone on Thursday (which you probably already knew) because I have a doctor’s appointment.

If I have the door locked, just leave it under your favorite bush or crawl through a window or something.

Alan Ominous 4/5/2016 - 11:05 pm

Actually, I have a key. It’s easier than you’d think
