How's it going my gumdrops? In yesterday's Cartoon Sunday blog, I went on another rant.
Cartoon Sunday: Foamy The Squirrel Christmas Block (2015)
You may be saying to yourselves, "OMG! What a bitch!" "Anna's always in mood about something," "She just wants people to PRAISE her ALL the time," blah, blah, blah. Believe it or not, my rants are justified.
Throughout the year on a daily, nightly, and hourly basis, I have to deal with people driving me bat, shit crazy. I can barely sleep in peace because emergency vehicles drive up and down the street 24/7. Those drivers are 1 of the main reasons I have Chronic Insomnia.
In addition, I have to constantly worry about my mother's health. It seems like almost everyday or every other day this year, my mother goes to the hospital, when she's not shopping at the grocery store for hours.
Then, I sign online and have to view attention-seeking and pity party status updates on stalkbook. That's when some people are NOT obsessively uploading their selfies, their children's selfies, their cat's selfies, their on/off again relationship statuses, them begging me and other people, that we know to support their children's fan pages only to stare at pictures of them playing with their toys, and other futile bullshit.
The people I'm complaining about are NOT working in entertainment at all yet they want to be "facebook famous." Some of us have been done with high school for the last 15 years and a nice portion of them aren't doing ANYTHING for anyone else.
They only want to take from people rather than give back to others in need.
Earlier this month, I talked to an old college friend. My friend was distraught over not being able to give her son Christmas. She and her husband are usually able to have gifts for Christmas, but it looked like it wasn't going to happen this year.
Imagine being a little boy or girl waking up on Christmas Day with nothing under the Christmas tree for you.
I felt terrible for my friend's son and almost cried. After I finished talking to my friend, I told my family about her situation. My mother, grandmother, and I got dressed within 1-2 hours and went shopping for her son at Kmart.
We each bought him mostly Star Wars toys. If I would've had more money, I would've bought her son a life-size talking Darth Vader. Kmart wanted $100 for it and it wasn't within my budget because I still had to shop for family.
Even though my friend's son did NOT get that talking Darth Vader, my mother ordered him a remote control car and a tri-lingual laptop through another store. His laptop is NOT the average laptop, that we as adults normally buy. His laptop is a children's laptop for educational purposes. It is meant to help with motor skills. My mother ordered it for a decent price.
My mother ordered my friend a small purse and her husband got a tool case. I also made sure to buy my friend a few things besides what I was already sending her. Before Christmas, we had to ship 2 boxes to their house.
The 2nd box was stuffed and ready to burst. My friend and her family were able to enjoy and appreciate Christmas this year, which was a positive. I was and still am happy knowing, that I was able to make someone in need happy for Christmas.
Originally, we did NOT have as many presents under our Christmas tree as well. We really did NOT need much of anything anyway. We have been re-arranging furniture, giving some away, giving clothes and shoes away, and mostly re-modeling our home. We all struggled to think of what we needed and wanted for Christmas.
While sitting in our living room on Christmas Day and as we opened our Christmas presents, my grandmother said, "Would you look at our tree?! We didn't have this many gifts under it. Our tree is overrun. Do you see how God multiplied?"
I know people with opposing views about religion (mostly Christianity) will have a MAJOR issue with me mentioning GOD in this blog, if they did NOT already have a problem with today's blog.
Regardless of your opposing religious views, more people should GENUINELY give back to those in need rather than expecting for others to CONSTANTLY give back to them.
I normally do things for people and I do NOT always expect praise. However, it would be NICE, if more opportunistic, self-important, attention whores learned to genuinely help others instead of ALWAYS expecting a free-handout.
If more people learned how to do good, see good, and be good, they could possibly gain more than they expected.
