Here’s looking forward to 2022

Tomorrow…does it have to come?

Whether for the better or the worse, yes…for many people.

This is the first time I’ve posted to OD in a long time.  Basically, this year has been a very shitful one for me for these reasons:

  1. One long-time friend I’ve had since 2011 suddenly turning against me and stalking me, as well as trying to sabotage a comeback gig for The Busymen in late August
  2. My d-SLR camera and laptop computer being stolen in May by a couple of homeless junkies after I gave them a lift to Kangaroo Point on the way to a gig I was going to be photographing at Blute’s bar
  3. Three of my uncles passing away from old age in the space of a couple of months
  4. My sister’s mental health going to pot after going through a painful separation after 12 years of wedded bliss.  Fortunately, she’s come out the other side now
  5. My Facebook page being hacked into on 1st February and the hacker putting 2 step authentication on it as well as my messenger and locking me out of it.  It took over 9 months until the 9th November to finally get it back up and running.  As a result, I lost out on some important business opportunities with the Brisbane Naturists group, the Brisbane Doctor Who Fan Club and a model shoot with a rising star model who specialises in children’s entertainment and cosplay
  6. Becoming depressed to the point of being catatonic and not being able to get out of bed for hours except to go to work or to see my family

I am working on turning my fortunes around for 2022.  I’ve got some exciting plans that I want to get happening and get my teeth stuck into them.  Plus I’ve also got my eye on a new woman who has been very encouraging of me and my artistic talents.  It’s been over 9 years since I was last in a relationship and I have not even shared a bed with a woman since 2018.  I don’t want my life and the world to go passing me by anymore.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.  Seize the day Carpe Diem, and venture into the unknown….
