Okay that may be a bit too harsh.
I went through some personal things in 2017 that put me through the ringer but ended in a lot of growth. Growth not only on how I view others and their needs, but how I view myself and my idea of self worth. This can only be looked at as a positive experience.
On the plus side, business was actually pretty good and looks to be shaping up to be even better in 2018 so I’m pretty excited about that.
I am very grateful for all of my gym mates at Kaiju MMA, most of which have become dear friends. Those that aren’t dear friends are at the least friendly acquaintances who I assume will be friends by the end of 2018.
So I guess the only reason to call this post “Blow Me 2017” is because for most people it wasn’t a great year and I’m not quite sure if 2018 is going to be better.
We have a big fight on our hands for those who seek basic human rights, dignity and support so the fight will continue into the new year.
However, since this should be a fun time for everyone I do wish you all a Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please be safe, have fun and relax.
Now here’s a super treat you didn’t ask for. Two! That’s right TWO! End of the year podcasts.
Over on podbean and iTunes Angie and I are just taking a few minutes to reflect on the past year.
And right here is an exclusive, random, episode of the Stuff n Stuff podcast. The bro-host and I ramble for like an hour and half on all things 2017. It’s filled with immature ranting, fart jokes and stupidity. So yeah, somethings never change.
Over on YouTube we’re talking about the possibility that maybe we live in a simulated universe. So you know, just some light conversation.
All links below and as usual I’ll see you all next week.
I have too much respect for myself and you to say “I’ll see you next year”. That’d be lame.
Perilous Podcast http://bit.ly/2och5LE A quick end of the year conversation.
Perilous Vlogcast http://bit.ly/perilpod Are we living in a simulated universe?
As usual you can follow me on twitter, Instagram and facebook.
Instagram http://bit.ly/1XgDJfc Stupid pictures I post of me doing stupid life stuff.
Twitter http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA I say stupid stuff in small snippets.
Facebook http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp Probably pictures of me getting beaten up.
Goodreads http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k Read my reviews before you buy my novel.
Amazon http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6 Buy my novel already! Jeez!
If you’re in Los Angeles head on over to Skylight Books in Los Feliz and pick up a copy there. They’re a great independent bookstore and it’s a nice way to show support for them. We need all the independent stores we can get.
Best wishes to all.
