What Happened in January

Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant night! 

I hope you all got a fantastic January! Mine was a little bit lacking in action and I’m hoping to build momentum for the next month. Sometimes you gotta keep on grinding and hustling even when the chips are down.

January might be lacking in action but it isn’t a total dumpster fire. There are some noteworthy events that I’d be glad to share with you guys. It may not be as festive as December but it is worthwhile nonetheless.

But before that, A few kitties have been telling me about this blanket of darkness hovering them. Yep, that’s right, I could talk to kitties and they have been complaining.

With a little bit of help, you could save the kitties and help us reach a broader audience. For those who are with us for a long time, thank you. I can’t express how much you mean to me. With that, let me extend my thanks to the following:

You guys are awesome, thank you!

January started just like any January, festive, a lot of merry-making and drinks. I get to spend time in the kitchen again, I got the chance to make some beer-braised brats. Nothing fancy, just some beer grub but still, cooking puts me in a meditative trance. I grilled some bratwurst then braised them in beer with some caramelized onions. 

Of course, it could be complete without beer. I’m a fan of cheap beer, especially local ones. I’d pick cheap beers over artisanal or specialty beer anytime. There’s something very comforting about the look and taste of commercial beer. You’d be surprised to know that I’m not much of a drinker, and I prefer my alcoholic beverages to be cheap and simple. 

It’s flu season again, and there’s a coronavirus scare roaming around. I have to work on my immune system, I could easily catch a cold and will soon enough end up coughing. I hate having colds and I hate coughing more. It’s not a great feeling, and it could hamper your confidence. Good thing I came out of it, and feeling a lot better. 

There’s not much happening in January, so I took the time to get back into my reading again. The previous months have been a handful and I forgot about my reading. I hope that I can still make time for reading. 

Like I said, January may be lacking in action but it is not a total dumpster fire. It should not be devoid of its merit but rather serve as a staging ground for future success. I use it to build momentum and set up for the coming months. 

January is already coming to a close and I’m already excited for the following months. Sure, not all days are good and some are most definitely bad but in life, one has to learn to take the good with the bad. There is no such thing as absolute happiness or bliss, something is bound to go wrong along the way. The important thing is to keep going and deal with the cards that have been dealt with. 

To Courage and Freedom, and to January!

      1. Addressing your readers as Barbarians suggests not that we are barbarians in the literal sense, but rather that we worship you in a way. We are your “followers”.

        I call myself a Savage. Addressing my readers as Savages is disrespectful of them. Many would find your addressing readers as Barbarians the same.

      2. Hi Succulent Savage! Thanks for dropping by.

        Let me start off by saying that if ever you decide to address me as one of your savages in your blog, I’d be honored. Given that the context that it is your blog and you address me as such to be part of your family of savages.

        Now, I really don’t want to make something that isn’t what it is. For a long time I’ve been writing, not many found it disrespectful; just one actually.

        I’m not one to jump into conclusion, but it seems to me that the term Barbarian has been taken too literally. I never once wrote about or imply that my readers are uncivilized but rather encourage my readers to live up to the values of strength, courage and freedom.

        As for the worship, no I don’t want to be worshipped or followed in a sense that I am a leader. I am just a guy who writes about what makes sense to him and hopes that it made sense to anyone reading it.

        I never used the word Barbarian as something derogatory, if so, then there won’t be stories, movies, and etc about barbarians.

        But that’s just my two cents of the topic.

        Cheers! 🍸


      3. I was giving you insight into why the person above me might have been upset by the idea. Also… just because no one says anything does not mean they don’t find it offensive. 😉 I opt to overlook an awful lot in order to be in the world, as everyone else does.

        Have a great night. 😉

  2. Perhaps January is allowing you to take rest Mr. A for more adventurous months! Would probably be fun to share those sausages and perhaps a bottle or two with you 🙂 Enjoy the rest of the month, good sir!
