Well, here I am. 39 years old. One year closer to 40.
However, before I get to that I should get this little bit of news out of the way first. First up, I am happy to report that I officially made my main website on WordPress into a dot-com site and just in time for the site’s tenth anniversary next month. In fact, on Valentine’s Day I was finally able to enable ads on my site because when you get a domain name on WordPress you have the option to monetize your site which is what I have wanted to do for a long time.
In other words, my website is now officially known as blackcatloner.com So now I am even closer to my dream of turning my online life into a full-fledged career.
The thing about birthdays is that the older I get, the more I start to reflect on my life as it was before I got to this point. And I feel like I made quite a bit of progress in the last few years, especially in the last few days starting with when I got my degree in the mail last week and now with me officially upgrading my site to a dot-com site. That while I feel like there’s more I could do, I feel like I am in a pretty good spot right now.
Unfortunately, I ended up coming down with a pretty bad cold for my birthday which even as I write this I am getting over. Add that to the fact that it’s been snowing pretty hard all week and you can tell that it wasn’t really a good week. But I can’t really complain though, especially with my big accomplishment this week.
I have actually started to uphold one of the resolutions I have made at the beginning of the year and that is the fact that as of a few weeks ago, I have started to quit the online dating biz by deleting my profiles on various dating sites. I started by deleting my profile on Zoosk which is a Facebook dating app three weeks ago. And last week I have officially deleted my profile on OKCupid which now leaves Plenty of Fish (which I did quit a while back but went back because I originally wanted to do a video on it as kind of a social experiment) and Match.com left. It’s a slow process because once again my relationship with online dating is the fact that it’s kind of like an itch you can’t help but scratch but it looks like they will be going soon.
And there you go, that’s pretty much what has been going on the last couple of weeks. I filmed a new episode of Blackcatloner Reviews before coming to the library today and I’ll be getting back to work on new videos again this week.
Remember the old saying, “Whatever can go wrong will go wrong?” Well, I assume Murphy never had to contend with a clingy woman on Facebook.
That’s right, folks. Last Saturday, I wound up adding yet another one of these “clingy women” (you know, the kind of woman that all men should avoid) on Facebook and she wound up blowing up my inbox with messages after she asked me if I was real because her former significant other was not real. I hate when women do that and it is a clear sign that she’s needy and desperate, a quality in women that I don’t find attractive yet they try to force their drama on you because they’re under the impression that you’re a nice guy. This is another reason why men don’t end up attracting the woman they want because women like these keep getting in the way.
And she wouldn’t let up. Later that night, we kinda got into an argument that I had her figured wrong after I told her that it isn’t going to work out and she replied that she was looking for friends only and not a relationship. The truth is that she came onto my page with her drama right out of the gate. And you know what? I don’t accept women like that anymore. I can’t be the White Knight anymore and the sooner women like her realize that, the better.
And after that night, I ignored her for the rest of the week despite the fact that she continued to blow up my inbox every several minutes trying to talk to me even though I disabled Facebook chat. Thank you, needy desperate women for showing me why I don’t use Facebook chat.
Of course that wasn’t the only thing that plagued me this week. I came down with a bit of a cold which is ironic because I had the same thing around this time last year and I was coughing for two months. It looks like it has come and gone, but I may have to consider getting a flu shot next week at Walmart. And speaking of work, I also had a TV fall on my leg the other night while I was binning TVs. I was all right, but my leg was sore for a whole day. And on top of that, my Twitter account was hacked again and I had to go and change my password. That’s always fun. It was like Murphy’s Law was against me this week.
