My mid life crisis – Ramblings


I turned 36. My life is headed no where, my career is like the japaneese stagflation of the early 90s, my lost decade from 25-35 is turning into the lost 2 decades and nothing I am doing is stopping that slump. In the midst of the this all I went out, got a new car (did not need one btw) and spent money I did not have modifying it (I have no idea why) and to further explain this insanity let me quantify the purchases over the past 2 months

  • New Icon Stage 3 suspension
  • Shrockworks front bumper with Vision X lights
  • CBI rear bumper with swing out tire carrier
  • 40″ E2 light bar from Rigid
  • 2 SR2 10″ light bars from Rigid
  • 6 pod rock lights (Also Rigid)
  • Dually lights for rear bumper  (Rigid)
  • Gobi stealth roof rack
  • Demello X-wing sliders
  • Shrockwork skidplates
  • Kodiak Industries Dual Battery
  • Warn Zeon 10s winch
  • Flatlink for the winch
  • Contura V Switches
  • New wheels and tires
  • LED interior lights
  • Trunk cover
  • Rotopax fuel & water containers
  • Head lights retrofitted by Apex Customs

I mean seriously, what the f*ck was I thinking. Anyway, this has put me out in a nice deep ditch from which I can try and extricate myself hopefully sooner than later. So while this means I am about 6 months worth of broke at the very least, I still have to sell the old car which just compounds this situation. Brilliant.

On the bright side since I cannot do anything or go out anywhere I guess I can sit down and study ! Oh and if that wasn’t enough I also got on a drinking kick. I wound up stockpiling more whiskey than I can must admit I drink. This is what I added on in the past 2 months to my stock which previously did not happen to include much more than a the Genlivets I usually drank. Lets look at the darn list .. I know I am in a  list making mood

  • Aberlour A’bunadh Batch 46
  •  Ardbeg Uigeadail
  • Ardbeg Ten
  • Ardbeg Auriverdes
  • Ardbeg Ardbog
  • Caol Ila 12
  • Chivas Brothers Royal Salute 21 sapphire Flagon
  • Glenlivet 18
  • Glenmorangie Lasanta – 46% ABV 
  • Glenmorangie Finealta
  • Jura Superstition
  • Jura Prophecy
  • Lagavulin 16
  • Laphroaig 18
  • Oban 14
  • Balvenie Double Wood 12 yrs

That is just all over the place. Its not like its just Islay or Highland or anything. Just a mish mosh of whiskey. Heck I did not even manage to buy the Glendronach which I liked when i last had some. That odd Chivas is supposed to be for my dad when he comes down in a week the rest will just gather dust in the place.

There goes my allocated time for this post timer.. but on the bright side I did manage to list out the whiskeys on hand, figure out the ones that are limited releases or sold out. I wonder what I should add next, At least if the world ends and all hell breaks loose I can drink myself into oblivion !

Off to study, thankfully I still enjoy doing it and being broke makes it the only other thing I can do without much charge..
