F*ck you, Life!

 

I don’t like being rude, but sometimes, you just have to call a cat a cat.

Anger is not a feeling I deal with easily. I rarely give into it, I find it useless, and I don’t need this feeling. When upsetting news hit me, I try to sit, and think, and if I can’t find a silver lining to the situation, I settle for sadness, which is a less agressive, and less destructive emotion.

I have this annoying (for me) reflex of putting things into perspective. Of comparing the bad things in my life to the troubles others are going through. And in no time, although my heart is still being the whiner it is, my head comes to the conclusion that, meh, things could be worse.

Today my head and heart agree.

After a brief meeting, we’ve all reached a consensus. I am angry at Life. Despite all the horrible things happening in the world, I take the right to be really upset.

As of this morning, Wow Air is out of business.

All flights are cancelled.

I am no longer going back to Denmark.

 

So, yeah… F*ck you, Life!

    1. I’ll be trying to get a refund today, but there seems to be no guarantee. And I doubt I’ll re-book, since all the other airlines are double the price or more…

    1. yes… I usually don’t give into anger unless I know the fight is worth fighting. Because that’s what anger is for, to give us the strength to overcome challenges. But when there isn’t much I can do, it becomes useless… Nonetheless, this morning, cursing has been allowed at home, until I manage to calm down.

      1. I have been in those situations and I took out my rage and fury on pillows.Sometimes they did not recover too well having lost a lot of stuffing. Hang in there. Sorry to hear the news from your Dad is not good.

      2. I feel for these pillows, but it was for a good cause! ๐Ÿ™‚ Finally, after venting my grumpiness, the anger is gone… And I am more in the mood to look for ways to fix things. Of course I’ll worry until Dad gets his heart surgery done, and he is out of danger for good, but I have to be strong to help Mom through this… Thank you for your support, Anne ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    1. The news aren’t a total surprise… I knew that they were discussing arrangements with Icelandair to keep the company afloat, and since Wow provided more than a third of all flights going through Iceland, I was hoping they would stay in the business at least until my planned trip.

      On the bright side (smell the sarcasm), I don’t really care all that much anymore. I just got a call from my mother, and the news about my dad’s health are far from good. So, yeah… some f*ckin’ day.

  1. Iโ€™m so sorry Cyranny about your dad and having to replan the vacation for later. I wish the news was better and you got to go, and that would be both frustrating, a let down b/c youโ€™re so excited, and plus more worry about your dad. Iโ€™m praying for you. ThF everything works out, that your dad heals more, and this can be salvaged for another time soon. You deserve that time off explore. And yes I agree, this is definitely an F You life moment.

    1. Thank you, Amanda! It was a f*cked up day… And my emotional gauge was challenged for sure. And though I am no heart surgeon, and can’t help Dad that way, I will find a way to go back to DK despite Wow Air’s bankrupcy. Or at least I’ll try ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. Thatโ€™s the spirit. I liked your f*cked up post after about the party. Made me laugh. Hope your dad is doing better today too. And thatโ€™s so weird about the bankrupt airline last minute. It will work out in the future and it will be amazing! Do you get your $ back? Now youโ€™ll see Montreal in the playoffs yay!

      2. Dad is stuck in bed for a couple of weeks, but he is out of danger for now, so that’s a good thing. It is nice not to be on the lookout for a call bringing more bad news… It’ll give me the chance to work on getting my $$ back, and hopefully find another flight I can afford.

        I haven’t had the time to read much the last few weeks, but I believe I stumbled on a post where you said you have moved into your new apartment?? How are things in your new home? Do you like it?

        About the playoffs, we still could get kicked out, but I am pretty confident we’ll at least participate to the first round… That’s always an exciting time of the year! *fingers crossed*

      3. Moved in Saturday. Friends and brothers, and my mom were a huge help! Unpacking and painting some furniture. Did a big grocery shop, and itโ€™s good at the moment. 2 blocks from groceries etc. itโ€™s fun, exciting to be here. Never thought I would get here even 5 years ago after how ill I was. Itโ€™s still hard at times, but improving each year.

        I was just reading a post by Sascha. Iโ€™d recommended the song โ€œBetter Lifeโ€ by Keith Urban. Though In her awesome story the song is the opposite. For me itโ€™s always been about hope, โ€œSo hold on, weโ€™re heading for a better life.โ€ I think thatโ€™s me as I embark, living alone and building a separate life, more work, new friends, new activities etc. I think thatโ€™s you wanting to travel and your dad wanting to heal and live a healthier life. We always have to have hope ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers ๐Ÿฅ‚ lady!

      4. I am so glad to see that things went well!! So much is changing in so little time, for you, and I am happy it is all for the best!

        Thank you for sharing Keith Urban’s song! I had never heard it, but it so spoke to me… You are right, there is something leading us to a better tomorrow… and though the journey sometimes seems long, it is always rewarding in the end!

        Cheers right back! Tou our hopes and dreams!! xx

      5. Thanks Cyranny itโ€™s been very nice. Hard work, but much worth it. Had a nice dinner w/ one of besties tonight. It was fun to both cook and relax w/ a glass of wine. Made it all seem possible. Iโ€™m glad you enjoyed the song, I think itโ€™s from one of his best albums. Although, he continues to pump out some great music. Iโ€™m happy it spoke to you. Slante too eh? How is your dad? I hope he remains near to you.

  2. NNNnnnooooooo!! There is something seriously fucked-up with the Universe lately. If it weren’t for Bad Luck, we’d have no luck at all, and it seems like you are in the same damned boat! Positive vibes and meditation aren’t working. So, let’s share a Pity Party where we just get drunk and shout curses and eat chocolate. We can ugly cry and grieve and throw inexpensive things we don’t need anymore and blame people we don’t like for all our woes. Once the Hang-Over is over, we can extend our apologies to the Universe but explain how it brought all this on itself by being so damned difficult. And then we just have to let The Norns do their worse. They might knock us down, but while we’re down, we’ll make weapons for when we get back up. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    I love ya, Lady! You’re always in my thoughts and I hope everything gets better soon. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก

    1. Oh dear Lori… This is exactly the spirit! I especially love the ”Throwing inexpensive things” and the ”Blaming people we don’t like”! You gave me a heartfelt and much needed laugh with this comment, and you almost convinced me to take a ticket to the other end of Canada instead of searching a new one for Denmark! Do you think the Viking would agree to give me private Danish lessons, if I changed my plans? I am guessing I’d learn a lot of cursing, and that is fine by me ๐Ÿ˜› I promise to take booze and boxes full of Toffifees!

      Thank you for the Pity Party idea ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it! And I love you too!! Muuuuuuuah!

      1. ๐Ÿ’– Sometimes you just have to give in and wail at the heavens, and shout and curse and behave badly. I actually didn’t know how cathartic that is because I’d never allowed myself that luxury. The Viking changed my mind through ‘Leading By Example”. ๐Ÿ˜„

        I’m so glad I could provide a little light in the darkness.

        As for coming this way………I have a lovely spare room and a Viking who would happily speak Danish with you. You are welcome here any time. You’ve won our hearts and now belong to the family. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™

      2. I’ll keep that in mind ๐Ÿ™‚ Going West might be a little confusing at first, but it would be well worth it! I would sure work hard to make the Viking proud, and be a good student ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just hope the kitties won’t mind Freja’s scent on me ๐Ÿ˜› hehehehe

    1. Thank you, Kristian ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, I agree that sometimes, we just have to let it out… As a matter of fact, I realize that if I hadn’t written this post, I probably would have felt bad all day long. After my rant, I was still a little down, but at least the anger wore off, and I am feeling a lot better today… *Big hugs* right back ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh, so sorry. Surely they will transfer your ticket to another airline company? If you paid by credit card they should be able to get your money back at least. Don’t let this keep you from going. Fight on!

    1. After the first blow of pure disappointment, I’ve let the dust set, and I will be discussing a possible refund with my credit card company this weekend. Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ll be transfered to other airline companies. I would have to find a ticket on my own, and the cheapest fares are at least the double, compared to what I had previously paid. That’s a lot of money, and I am checking what could possibly be done… Maybe if I only use Couch Surfing and don’t pay for a place to live while in Denmark, and cut costs to the lowest… Hey! Who knows? I might gather all kinds of tricks to show other people how to travel on the slimmest budget ever ๐Ÿ˜› *Fingers crossed*

    1. Thank you, Trina ๐Ÿ™‚ It was quite a harsh day, with two bad news in very little time. And with the last three week’s exhaustion, I didn’t take it very well, but with all your pats on the back, it helped a lot, and this weekend, I’ll be trying to sort the trip issue, and clean up, to welcome Mom home, when Dad is moved to Montreal’s Cardiology Institute for his heart surgery. A lot of stuff ahead, but I’m up for the challenge… Thank you for the sweet thoughts ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  4. I was going to say that I am sorry that you are having a shit show of a day but that doesnโ€™t quite seem to cut it. I think I shall say instead that I am sorry that you are having a clisterf*ck of a day. Sometimes clusterf*ck is the only word that is descriptively perfect.

    Hang in there; Iโ€™m sending positive and less clusterf*ckery thoughts your way.

    1. Oh, yes it does… Big time! Wow Air was my easy way to Europe. This was my 5th trip using the low-cost airline in just three years, and I was planning on flying with them many more times. F*ck!

      But hey, it’s Life, and I’ll just take the challenge, even if I didn’t need it. *fingers crossed*
