Welcome to the newest segment of Carbie’s life: W(h)ine Wednesday! It should be evident that this segment will basically be me whining about the things going on in my life, while simultaneously encouraging you to grab the closest alcoholic beverage and live my issues with me. For your enjoyment always.
Peace, love, & chicken nuggs, Carbie
Man, oh man. Seems like everything these days is an excuse to screw my Guzzle Buddy into a bottle of wine and drink until I forget. (If you don’t know what a Guzzle Buddy is, you can check it out here.)
And what better day of the week to wine (see what I did there?) down than on Wednesday? Hint: there isn’t.
Truthfully speaking, there’s so much going on in my little brain that I can feel it starting to leak. Graduate school is kicking my ass, my relationships are being pushed to the limit, and I am so dissatisfied with my employment situation that it makes me want to cry. It’s getting to a point where the most minor of inconveniences to my life push me to a breaking point. Things that don’t even involve me, just in a more remote and distant way, get under my skin. To top it all off, mine and Tom’s schedules are so fucking conflicting I don’t even know when we’ll have time to see each other.
The most unfortunate part of all of this is that the best medicine for all of this is to roll with the punches. Keep at it. Don’t give up. Don’t let the little things bother you.
Don’t let the little things bother you, they say. What they don’t know is that I, Courtney Michelle Ahearn, have a condition in which I let everything bother me. I don’t know how to filter out the bullshit from the real issues, and this might be my biggest problem.
At least when I’m having some kind of elf-proclaimed life altering crisis, I got my guzzle buddy and a fresh bottle of wine to drown my problems.
