So, here we are, the Eve of New Year’s Eve. In case any of you care, New Year’s Eve is my least favorite “holiday”. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I HATE New Year’s Eve and have done so for my entire life.
I resent feeling like I “have” to go to a party just to start a year.
Of course, tomorrow I have to go to a party, you know, to start the year.
However, the good news, well, somewhat good news, is that Axel has the flu and may not feel like going. Wouldn’t that just be horrible? Of course, I’d need to stay home to play nurse, naturally.
Bless his heart.
At the end of the year I generally like to look back and write these long, flowing posts about life, love, and other things, but this year I am not doing that. Instead, I am simply going to say that I had a great 2014 and am proud of myself (and Axel) for opening my mind to new things, starting this blog, and officially opening my marriage because it’s been a fucking fun few months.
The one thing I always enjoy about the New Year is the chance to take a look ahead and make a few plans. I am not one to technically make “resolutions” because, well, I simply don’t like to follow the norm, but my plans are generally along the same path and since I have been very “out there” in the last few months, I have decided to make a few vows for 2015. Besides, I think a “vow” is much stronger than a “resolution”, don’t you think?
So, all that fun stuff to say, for 2015 I vow to:
Show myself fully naked (neck down, of course) to all of you by June 1st.
I know I am not in awful shape now, but I am not where I want to show myself off to more than the two people who currently see me naked now. This will serve as my motivation and I suspect there are several of you who will constantly remind me of the upcoming date.
That said, I have hired a trainer who understands I do not have a normal life and can’t do things like Crossfit and other things I want to do based on my schedule, so he is creating a plan for me that travels and tomorrow is our first day of training.
Never beat myself up ever again for my kinks and my desires.
To do this I plan to encourage Axel to do the same, as it benefits us both. I hope this means I will spend more time locked, more time with something inside me, and more time adhering to the chalkboard rules.
Also, with this vow, I intend to also more fully embrace my “super switchiness” and, when possible and during “those times”, take Thumper to that rocket place of pain where he makes that magical sound more often while also perfecting my fucking technique to a precision pattern that will leave him walking sideways for at least an afternoon – or two.
To continue to defy as many stereotypes as I can
I rather enjoy being the gay married business guy in the expensive suit with a tattoo, a rod in my cock, who is going about his day in the corporate world while almost always thinking about what he wants to ask his boyfriend to put up his ass just to make me giggle and swoon all day.
So, I am going to find a way to expand this.
To travel more
Yeah, this is just here for shits and giggles. In 2014 I spent 240+ nights in hotels and traveled 297,308 miles.
I have no idea what the year holds to be honest, but I hope to NOT beat these numbers.
To be the best husband, friend, son, brother, boyfriend, and man I can be
I actually always, always start every year by telling myself this; however, this year I just added one new word that I am not sure I ever expected I would add. For the record, it made me smile.
So, those brief vows said, Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2015 brings you nothing but love, blessings, and all that other junk.
P.S. – as a funny aside, Axel is in the kitchen and, as I finished this, I yelled across the house that I had just made a vow to post a naked picture of myself as an incentive to get off the couch. I heard nothing and then he appeared saying in the most accenty of accents which is somewhat sexily muted and gravely by his illness, “Whoa, now, Drew, I am really, really liking this new side of you, but this is a bit much. Don’t you think you should reign yourself in? I mean, no.”
I was a bit shocked until I realized that he thought I had put that vow on Facebook.
