Vanity Card #55 – The Epitome of 125 Days

VanityCard55EpitomeOf125Days

Before you say anything, I must stand on trial and admit that I am guilty of not writing any update here for ages. Today Facebook randomly informed me that I have not published anything for 125 days and it hit me – my life has changed almost completely in the past four months and I have been way too silent about it.

So here is a small recap what happened.

First of all, I learned many various life lessons from my travels in Europe. Life is short. Known fact, yet many think that they live forever. Best possible option is to start aiming higher and focus on your own ambitions in life; what makes you smile, what gives you strength to wake up in the morning, what gives you a purpose.

I enrolled into University of Applied Sciences to study IT and perhaps gain a foothold in an industry that is still growing and evolving on the various fields it offers. I have dreams to one day weave entertaining stories and characters into personal driven game experiences. I have a lot of thoughts and plots to be deployed into the market.

I had a lot of personal baggage from my past and the long dark years had made it difficult to search for someone special. Someone who understands who I am and what I seek from this crazy thing called life. Nevertheless I decided it was time to make conscious moves to start dating people and get exposed for possible heart breaks.

For my astonishment it didn’t take very long before I ran into this one beautiful, amazing and incredibly hilarious woman that stole the very beating thing under my chest. I have now learned to smile again. You know what feeling is the best in the world? To know that someone accepts and loves you just the way you are.

With this newly acclaimed happiness, I feel like I can do so much more in life.

One more change that happened – I did this one huge money contract with bank where I gave up almost everything I had and now I own a apartment. Well, the bank still owes it technically but I am paying a huge chunk of money every month so I can hang around naked in the apartment. Anyone want to come help me hang my curtains? Or help hang my paintings together? No? Shiii.

In all shortness, I am not sure how I will continue to update my site here in GeorgeCarcain.com – I do update my Instagram with small written pieces every now and then. But perhaps I have to open my thought tank and let it spill freely here on the web as well. I am also wondering about starting to write in Finnish once again..

Summer, I hope you arrive soon! I have many plans for you..

Thanks for reading!

Vanity Card #52 – The How You Like Me Now

VanityCard52TheHowYouLikeMeNow

To set the right mood, press play.

The camera slides into focus with a wide lens capturing the whole office room. George sits at his work desk and drums the pen on the keyboard.  The song can be heard through the headphones and it visibly irritates the coworkers. Boss enters the room, assesses the situation and walks to remove the headphones. Dialog begins.

When was the last time you really felt freedom? Like you could do anyone and anything in the world? When was the last time you were thinking about your life and thought to yourself, man, I am winning this game so bad.

An hour later the man in question walks free from the conference room and the days of breathing damp office air are numbered. Tickets have been drafted, plans have been made. No more of this old mess.

I am getting ahead of myself here. There is still 60 days left. In conclusion, I have decided to follow my good friend’s wisdom of leaving everything behind for a while and search for experiences in the open wide world. Many would question my choices – our bloody generation was well tempered into a loop of eat, work and sleep repeat.

Tickets have already been purchased and now the ecstasy of planning enthralls the brain, going back and forth on all the possibilities and places to see. Truth is I have known already for a while my personal calling and during this year I am ready to go through all the hoops, hell and high water to achieve the goals set for 2017.

So all I can do tonight is to play this song over and over and over.

Seasonal greetings!

Let me phrase George R.R. Martin for once, the winter is coming. Autumn has pushed the limits of my loose understanding why I still keep my residence here in the cold northern hemisphere.

While I’m suffering my personal mild hypotermia, please find  below some updates from my Instagram project. If you’re not already following me at Instagram, get your cup of tea and get on with it!
