Such an SSG thing to do

It was about mid-January when I realized Valentine’s Day was coming up.

I set up to make some valentines card to sell. Got my computer and designed something close to 20 cards. I was on a roll. I spent about a week designing them and I have to say I was very happy with the results.

Then it was time to get to the actual paper cutting, die-cutting, glueing, etc.  That’s when I realized I was out of glue.

Went to the one and only craft store here and they didn’t have it. So I ordered online.

It finally arrived on February 1.

I had hoped to have the cards ready to sell by that date but okay. I said to myself, “Myself, it’ll be ok. You’ll have the cards ready in a couple of days and then you can start selling them”.

Ha! Continue reading

Me, the hypocritical bitch

So this was me, in 2011.

Holy cow, was I ever feeling particularly bitter that day.

Clearly I needed to get laid er, some chocolate. Yes. Chocolate. At least that my story and I am sticking to it.

But seriously, though, What’s with the hate? Jeez, SSG, just chillax.

I’ve mentioned before that 2010 was a great year for me. I had expected 2011 to be even better but as it turned out it all all downhill from there. And the trend continued for 2012 and 2013.

If you’ve read any of my most recent posts, 2014 didn’t exactly start with the right foot… except for one HUGE thing. Which, unbelievable enough, has its roots in 2013.

So I found myself thinking yesterday afternoon – for reasons that will become very apparent in the near future but I am not to spoil the fun, and I realized Valentine’s, which I had not thought of in a long time, is coming up soon. Even more, that the situation is completely reversed this year.

Which is incredible in many ways. For many reasons.

OK, let me start by saying that I’m really happy for all my friends that are in love and are loved back at this moment in life.  I am truly happy for all my friends that are in a happy, healthy, loving relationship today.  Good for them.  Seriously.  Very happy for all my friends that are just starting a relationship as well.  Butterflies in the stomach are a wonderful thing.  And just in time for Valentine’s! isn’t that wonderful?
But! I’m single.  And while I KNOW I’m loved by many people, friends and family alike (and I love them back too) I don’t have a f*cking boyfriend. Haven’t had a f*cking boyfriend in years.  So, I’m f*cking sick and tired of all those lovey-dovey tweets and FB posts about Valentine’s day.  And I’m even more f*cking sick and tired of friends wishing ME a happy Valentine’s day.  Like, WTF?
Yes, I know you mean well.  I know you love me.  I know you want all the best for me.  But you’re only making it worse! sorry but that’s the truth.
Yes, I know I’m being a sour person.  Yes, were I in love with a guy who loved me back, I’d be one of those people tweeting today about how wonderful life is.  Yes, I am well aware that makes me a hypocritical bitch. Contradictory? well, that’s part of the human condition.  And after all, I’m only human.
So, there!
Feel free to carry on with your lovey-dovey messages.  I’ll just stay away from Twitter and Facebook today.
See you tomorrow -unless I feel I have to rant a bit more today
