I have to go home to Canada quickly this weekend
Because life threw another curve ball at us.
I’m sure you may have noticed,
I am not a big fan of this thing called life anymore.
I am not fond of anything that treats anyone unfairly
without rhyme or reason.
So, I better go and leave,
Before I punch life in its throat.
Today marks my 20th year
living in North America.
That’s half my age, if I may share that too.
I left the Philippines for Canada when I just turned 20
and was reborn to a whole new life,
in a whole new place.
Interestingly enough, this year also marks my 10th year living in the States.
So that’s 20 in the Philippines,
10 in Canada
and 10 in the US.
And between how old I am and living in these three countries,
I can surely tell you, in my experience,
that people are all the same wherever you may go.
And by “all the same” I meant there will always be nice people
Sure, people have different customs and traditions or how they do stuff,
but when it really comes down to it, you can’t avoid the assholes, bitches and pricks.
Seems like it’s getting harder and harder to find nice and well mannered people nowadays.
Oh yeah. Right.
I should be writing good stuff in here.
How I should be thankful that I had the opportunity to live in other countries and start anew?
Well, I am sorry.
I’m an asshole too.
And a jerk.
I’m sorry. I am on my third coffee,
and someone just pissed me off today.
I like old songs.
I mean, very old songs.
Because they are forgotten.
I never forget.
Except when I don’t want to remember something.
Then I don’t even know what I am talking about.
This is from the music of Jim Capaldi.
And it’s the first time I tried the Drummer feature on GarageBand.
Music by – Jim Capaldi

So. There it is.
I should cover more old songs.
Because I am old.
I can’t be singing about young stuff.
What were we talking about?
