I'm back, and I hate a lot of things

My mind has been befuddled the dearth of good fortune as of late. It seems as though nearly everything is on a downhill slope and we are one a gigantic sled, quickly picking up speed, headed towards a briar patch of Russian-made landmines.

Negativity is my strong suit, thus I'm making a list of things that I dislike strongly. The multitude of things I hate is staggering, so of course, this is not an exaustive catalogue.

-Cancer: It's certainly going to top my list of things I hate most of the time, and I'll tell you why. It's arbitrary. You can avoid AIDS. You can stay in perfect physical health, and greatly reduce your chance of having a heart attack. But cancer is different. It will pick any target, and it doesn't care how well you've lived your life up to that point. People who live amazingly healthy lifestyles and stay away from all the bad stuff end up with it. Yes. I know life is unfair. It's just the particular way that cancer makes that particular point is really aggravating.

They're both so petty - during a time of massive political and economic upheaveal - that they focus solely on the best way to make the other guy look bad.

There's part of me that says that I should just appreciate the fact that I am lucky enough to have a job at all, but that part isn't as vocal as the other part.

-Writing: I get really tired of
