I haven't put out a blog post for a while. Most of the reason was that I wasn't sure of the utility of this medium, but I guess it is also a good place for me to express ideas of my own that probably nobody will ever read.
My father passed away on October 11th and since then, it has been a whirlwind of family, my fathers, friends, cleaning his home for company, figuring out how to pay his bills, and dealing with a myriad of emotions.
That being said, I have definitely come out on top, thanks to an amazing group of friends who have totally been there through everything. Despite what has happened, I feel confident to come out stronger than ever. My dad's humor is definitely not going away any time soon as I am filled with puns and "dad jokes".
The other end of things is I have started to feel very energetic in terms of productivity. Maybe its cause I dont really sleep anymore, but aside from seriously upping my soccer skills at work, I have been writing a lot of political ideas down and been thinking through a number of issues that are rarely discussed in the circles I have frequented. I am also much more in appreciation for people that work long term in working class jobs and still act as militants.
anyway. enough of a rant for the day. cheers.
