Have you ever worked so ridiculously hard for something, only to have it taken away from you for very short time later?

Nothing is worse than accomplishing a goal and having it disappear.

I just lost a very well paying design client. Life sucks.

With my current job, working hard is actually impossible, aahh government

probably, although i can't think of an example.


i think it's more common that i work hard for things that i never even ended up getting.

I bought a beer cooler once and it was my pride and joy for one Christmas. I believe I left it in a taxi. It still cuts me deep inside, I was so happy with that cooler and I got to use it for one day.

I  had a Penknife when I was A kid Always wanted one Took me a lifetime Convincing my Mom to let me get it , Used to look at it open closed half open , half closed  I could have took on A dinosaur with that Penknife 

Running along the canal bank one day it fell out of my pocket bounced once on the footpath and  Plop !! gone forever  

never had anything in my life that cool till I got my first shotgun 

In your pomp and all your glory your a poorer man than me as you lick the boots of death born out of fear

i'm not sure i've ever worked hard for anything other then survival, but there have been lots of things i had wished to make much greater and longer use of, that either wore out too quickly, or have yet to come into my possession.  the closest i've ever come to owning land or a house, was a small boat, which of course, wasn't very close at all.  but loss, well, i've moved many times, and have almost never been able to take everything i would like to have kept, which has given me, i'm afraid, a bit of a callus, about loosing things.  as i've never been exceeding well off either, i have always found this somewhat annoying none the less.

my nation is the imagination

this is the dawning of the age of zootopia

and thank god i'm not quite human
