Sweeping Generalizations

Just a short post tonight. I’ve been following vanlife videos and posts about people living unconventional lifestyles. I’ve come to the conclusion that many of these folks exist solely on avocado toast and sauteed greenbeans. Like 90% of the content creators are vegans. I think for practical reasons, vegan food works well because protein is a bitch to refridgerate. But holy shit, I would get sick of the avocados.

I like avocado toast and all, but wow, I would be so sick of them after a while. Especially when you get those ones with the slimy grit in them.

The other day, I kinda got into it here with a friend. Hell. I don’t know if they are still a friend. Or really ever were. I am still thinking that whole thing over. I’m guessing somebody was projecting. I haven’t heard from them, but I know the kiss off when I hear it. “Good luck, Clint.” Yeah, good luck to you too.

See, here’s the thing. This blog is an online diary of sorts. Anyone who blogs about their lives is writing about themselves. So yes, sometimes we come off as selfish. Honestly, it doesn’t have to be about anyone else. If you don’t get that, it’s okay to keep scrolling. I don’t need a lecture when I choose to share my inner thoughts about a situation. Be the better person. Fuck. You have no idea what kind of strength it takes to share thoughts on a semi-public platform if you aren’t doing it. To my fellow bloggers, keep going. Keep sharing.

There are days someone can shut you down with a few words and they really don’t have any culpability. This isn’t a place where my thoughts are right or wrong. Just sorta seemed shitty to me. I’ve noticed the other times this has happened their response is never an apology. It’s a justification for being an ass. I get tired of that.

Just like I would get tired of avocado toast every day.

But anybody who has been following this site has seen some of the crap I’ve had to do for others. I’ve given up the majority of my adult life for others. Don’t lecture me on being selfless. I just don’t go around virtue signaling if I can help it.

Those comments had me a little shook. A little blocked. I got over it.
