A Random Life Observation

I've realized, after reconnecting with a lot of people I went to school with on Facebook, that my life hasn't changed much after all these years. Quite a few of them are happily married, moved out of state, and are employed in decent paying jobs. They were also more popular in school than I was, meaning they weren't constantly picked on and persecuted for the clothes they wore, or lack of their own vehicle in high school. Most of them actually graduated... the constant picking on that I got in high school affected my grades, I flunked 12th grade... went and got my G.E.D.

Which brings me to today. I'm still what you could consider "not popular". Marriage only lasted 4 years, haven't even found one date since the divorce, even after spending a lot of money over the years on online dating sites, finally giving up on those sites a couple of years ago. Been unemployed since late October, even after constantly applying for work at all the places I'd be qualified to work at... except Wal-Mart, because they are the bastards that let me go just because I "took too many days off" when I had the flu, even though I had an excuse from the doctor (now I refuse to even step one foot in the place). Course, when I was at Wal-Mart, I wouldn't have been successful at developing a "social life" anyway, because my work hours changed daily, with no set days off most of the time. Doubt I'd develop much of a social life anyway, since the son is living here now, and he doesn't know the meaning of the word "privacy"... although he likes HIS.

Think the reasons I'm where I stand today is: 1)family didn't have much money when I was growing up, thus the cheap no-name clothes... 2)no brother or sister(at least I would have had someone to directly "compete" with).

You've heard of lonely old "cat ladies"... well... I feel like I'm destined to become a lonely old cat man...
