Back Again

It has been a while since I have posted anything, in part that has been simply because I have been so busy (yeah I know a lousy excuse) and another part has been that so many things have gone on that I have not felt like posting right away/ that I did not really want to get into at the time.  I am going to totally skip over the current events in the news as every one knows what they are, instead I think I will do a quick update on what is going on with me and all that good jazz.

One of the big developments is that I am no longer actively in the market for a place to buy, as the unsuccessfulness of the previous attempt has caused me to take a step back and decide for one thing that I want to increase the amount I have saved to use towards a down payment, and that secondly I am no longer nearly as confident in the decision to buy.  In part from a financial stand point unless something impossible where to come by and from anther perspective I'm less confident now then I was at the original outset of this project that the housing market, and the economy will actually continue to improve or improved significantly in the forcible long term.  With the latest political and power upheaval I am significantly less confident that for some one in my shoes the picture will remain stable let alone get brighter economically.  Maybe I am being to cynical or buying into the political mudslinging to much, but I am let feeling less then enthused to make such a big decision.

I am also on the same token even more willing to do and learn other positions at work that in the past I would have probably turned down/declined the request to do, like the fact that now in addition to being a backup price changer I am going to be training to be a backup auditor as well.  In part because it is another thing to know how to do, but also because it make me more valuable to keep around where I currently am.  But to me it also represents more skills that I posses if goodness forbid something where to happen and I needed to find another living quickly. 

In good part the recent spats of uncertainty that I feel are going on and that I have encountered seem to be having the affect of making me even more conservative careful with my financial choices as well as my choices when it comes to employment.  That I seem to be becoming even more risk avoidance, as well as stockpiling even more for the worst case scenario, that to an extent still needs to be countered out and balanced with a living and enjoying the hear and now as well.

Gay Friendly Add Must Mean Al Qaeda Add On The Way!!

No surprise Bill O'Reilly, is once more sending his no spin zone spinning out of control, as he has taken up issue with a McDonald's add from France, that as part of their "come as you are series of adds" features a subtle gay "them" to it. as the add starts out with the teen sons sitting waiting for his father to get the food from the counter when his cell rings and he talks to one of his classmates as a couple would about how he looks good in the class pic and that he misses them. its not till the end you find out that the class is all boys. and then the tag line "come as you are".

Insight Into Myself From Article Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness

So I recently read this article on The Huffington Post Hightline called Together Alone: The Epidemic Of Gay Loneliness this article is one that I would highly recommend reading.  It is an article that touched me in a significant way.  The article fouces on why even thought the gay community has come a long way in gaining equal rights, it still suffers from high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety and substance abuse.  The article points out that "are between 2 to 10 times more likely then straight people to take their own life. Where twice as likely to have a major depressive episode" And this pattern holds up in countries that where even early adopter to things like gay marriage.  While there virtually no study on the subject in the US in Canada it has been found that more gay men a year die from suicide them they do for HIV/AIDs if those finding are to hold true in the US suicide could be the next major epidemic with in the gay community taking countless number of lives…
