I will admit that I have a hard time getting into the spirit of Christmas most years in general. It's hard when you suffer the loss of a parent at a very young age. Holidays seem rougher than most days.
I know that time heals all wounds and it has kind of healed that wound too, I have the good days with the bad ones at the holidays, but every year I do sometimes struggle.
This year has hit a whole new level for me.
I am usually very aware of the human condition around Christmas. I know your thinking, do what?
The human condition… I'm very aware of those who are less fortunate than I am during the holidays. I do my part and I lend a hand in the best ways that I know how to.
Well, now I'm done with that. I have come to the general conclusion that people suck.
Before you get up in arms hear me out.
This weekend while I was out shopping for Christmas gifts for friends and family my vehicle was invaded and I was liberated from a few of my earthly possessions. My iPad being one, that I know they had to have dug though my car for, and my binder of CD's.
My big 300 CD binder filled to the brim with the amazing music that I have come into contact with in my time here at KLLL… Gone. Just like that. Gone.
The iPad I could actually care less about. The new iSo update didn't exactly agree with my iPad and I was looking to update, so the upside here is this craptacular piece of humanity with sticky fingers helped me out in the fact that I now have an excuse to purchase a new iPad.
What hurts and feels like such a violation is the CD case that was taken. This was a music collection that I had been cultivating and working on over the last couple of years. Lots of those albums were things that I started acquiring after I got the title of Music Director at the station. I love getting in new music to listen too.
There were a few albums that I am particularly distraught over. One of them being a brand new copy of George Straits 50 Number One's and the Eli Young Band albums that were in this case. There were lots of albums with lots of great memories that in one swift move are gone. Kenny Chesney's new album, gone. Eric Church The Outsiders, gone. Kevin Fowler, Cory Morrow, Arron Watson, Kyle Park, Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, The Band Perry, Little Big Town, Thomas Rhett, Tyler Farr, Josh Abbott, Grainger Smith, Brad Paisley, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Cody Canada, Chase Rice, Rascal Flatts, Lady A, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Blake Shelton… you name it… gone. All of them just gone.
Part of the reason I love my job, is that I love the music. The music is part of who I am. This is where this all really starts to suck; it feels like this person/s took a piece of my soul.
I know it sounds weird, but I'm not a musician, and I don't pretend to be, but music was always a big part of my life growing up and it still is. It now pays my bills.
So it's hard to feel like a piece of you is missing at the holidays.
I know this seems weird and out of left field, but its how I feel.
And remember that even if you lock your car that's not going to keep people out. As a friend once told me locks are for honest people.
Unfortunately not everyone is honest.
