Even since leaving FB for the most part (I still use messenger because many of my friends use no other form of communication) I find that I have a lot more time to focus on things that are a bit more important such as digging though the hundreds (or perhaps thousands) of memes that are created on a daily basis. They can't all be 10's but every now and then I find something that makes me laugh or impacts me in some other way.
Here are a collection of the ones that had enough of an impact on me that I bothered to save them.
I never had kids and although I did get close a couple of times I never got married either. Other than my parents and siblings I don't have any family members and that is not something that bothers me; I have plenty of friends that I talk to daily and I see many of them daily as well. I am NOT lonely nor do I regret not making a family of my own.
Many of my pals from college and high school live a very different life than I do as my days consist of doing whatever I want for myself and honestly, I am the only person I have to keep happy. Since I love videogames this is where a lot of my money ends up.
A friend of mine recently reintroduced me to the world of edibles. The ones I use on occasion are cookies that have a certain level of maryjane in them. As someone who was a hooked smoker for about 20 years I don't like to smoke anything anymore so edibles are the only way I will have any weed. Lately i made the mistake of double dipping because I wasn't feeling the first cookie and about an hour later I was getting rocked by the first one and still had the second to look forward to. I got a take away pizza and headed home before they fully kicked in.
There have been many points in my life where I had jobs that were great, then jobs that were just ok, then jobs that I tolerated because the pay was good, and then there were jobs that I hated. One of the jobs that I was really good at but really didn't like was teaching English in Thailand. I loathed every single day of that job and later on I didn't really need the money or the work permit because I owned my own business. The school contacted me and asked if I would come "help them out" because a teacher had just done a runner (left after collecting a paycheck and just left the country because the job sucks.)
I did not want the job but it isn't fair to the kids to just not have a teacher. When I came back to this job they had NO power over me and when I wasn't teaching I simply left the school. The full time teachers would get fired for this but I knew I was untouchable since I was doing them a favor. So every day was a half day for me and if they ever threatened me with repercussions I just told them "ok, well then i quit."
This one is just funny. I can't really relate to it but I do like the guy's sense of humor. I spit a little bit of coffee out when I read it the first time.
This one is not funny but it does have a beautiful story in it. I don't have any kids but I do have a fur baby named Nadi and as each year passes I am a little bit scared of the fact that there will come a day when I have to face exactly what is presented in the above meme. This one made me misty-eyed while I was working out in a gym. It truly hit me right in the feels and I am not looking forward to the day that I have to do this. Thankfully it is hopefully many years off as Nadi is only 6 years old.
Sorry to end on a downer but those are the memes that I felt compelled to save this week and I hope you enjoyed them!
