Should it bother me that...

The "National Collector's Mint" is offering a September 11th commemorative silver leaf certificate that is redeemable for Liberian Currency. I know I had a lot going on that day, but it somehow slipped my mind how effected by the tragedy the county of Liberia was. So you pay $20 U.S. for something that is redeemable for $20 Liberian. $20 Liberian is equal to $0.31 U.S., ridiculous point number 2. These infomercials playing on the sympathies of those people that are not smart enough to read the fine print and old people are distasteful.

Yeah, I've just decided that yes, it does bother me and probably should. DISGUSTING!

Just a thought

The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you're not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don't take it personaly when they say "no" -- they may not be smart enough to say "yes."
--Keith Olberman

How about that for a good theory? Why should you not go after whatever you want? And in a lot of cases I think that when people do say "no" that they really aren't smart enough to see the gain in saying "yes."

Sometimes you have to keep at it to get something you want and sometimes you just have to move on. What you do is entirely up to you? But whatever your cause, don't let anyone get you down.


My Creative Juices...

are being used up elsewhere.

I have to write a "memoir" of 2 pages for my English class & I am having the damnedest time coming up with a time in my life that tells a compelling story that I can keep to the page limitations. I am having issues writing recently, which is part of why I have not blogged here in a while.

The other and more significant part of why I have not been blogging is that I think I may need to change the format of this blog and start a more intimate detail of my accounts elsewhere and anonymously. As an explanation: I like to write about many things and I have lately censored my writing as to not have an impact on people that read this blog and know of the players that are involved in a given circumstance.

So, for the sake of these people, I will not blog about these things on this blog anymore. However, for my own sake I will be keeping a journal that is more intimate than what I have been keeping and I am going to make it public, but not advertised as my blog. Why not just make it private?

I like to believe that there are times that I write about things that are helpful to other people. Either they take a lesson from it or just need to know that someone else is going thru the same things that they are. If I can help just one person with my writing without hurting anyone directly than I feel that making it public is value added. So, that would be the rationale.

Now, what should I do here? I look to some of you for advice. What do you like to read about? I plan on continuing with some music posts, some movie reviews and so forth. But, what have you liked about my blog? What have you not liked?

Sidenote: I don't think I will be interacting much with my readers on my new blog and if you are clever enough to find it, please do me a friendly favor and keep my identity private for the sake of everyone.

So, let me know what you are thinking? I want to have this revamp to start next week sometime.

Much love


I Sit Here Thinking

What is it that drives people to the edge of reasoning? How can someone reach that point where they forget that they have so much going for them and begin to think that everything important is completely out of their hands? Do they not see the joy that they bring to other people or the quick impact of a smile?

I am not a person that forgets these things easily. I don't focus on the uncontrollable aspects of my life: the rainy days, the reactions that people have or the way that things just naturally run their course.

I tend to concentrate on the things that I can do that do make a difference: a kind word, a solid argument, a warm smile, a hug, a shared laugh and all the other positive interactions.

I bet if you look at the positive interactions that occur over the course of your average day you will find that they greatly outweigh the negative ones in volume. I would say that this is even true of your "bad days."

Babe we both had dry spells Hard times in bad lands
(Ritter, Josh "Good Man")

Keep that chin up and live life for yourself.

Those days that something bad happens, learn from it. When you make a mistake, learn from it. If your heart is broken, learn from it. These moments of hardship are the way that we live

What Do I Really Know, Anyway?

I am forgetting little things. I don't know if it is a condition of age or if it is just that I am utilizing memory space for different information. It is rather frustrating at times, but has not impaired my course work...yet.

There are some things that are bugging me to no end. I have no idea what path may be the correct one to choose in progressing forward from the state that these things are currently in. This is a major contributor to my lack of posts recently.

I miss having quality time with some of my friends, but am thankful for the quality time that has filled the void. I AM dealing with a mixed bag of feelings. Its like I just got a new puzzle with the following issues:

1) There is no picture on the box to guide the process.
2) There are pieces missing.
3) There are extra pieces that should not be there.
4) I have a time limit for completion.
5) My friends don't do puzzles.

So, here I am thinking examining the pieces, trying to find some commonality that links them together. Guided only by a strong reasoning mind & a unwavering heart on a mission to see some beautiful image pop amongst the conundrum of life's little pieces.

I hope everyone is well and I miss those of you I don't get to see nearly enough.
