2 Years! Already?!

I just had to post a little something here for today. It’s already been two years since I started this thing. I remember sitting in my apartment trying to stave off of homework, ironically, which is exactly what I’m doing right now. I remember seeing some really awesome posts and thought, wow, maybe I could do that. It would definitely save me from studying from this test that I have. And so, that’s how it happened. And from then on, I was able to escape to here whenever I became stressed. It was actually really therapeutic. I could say whatever was on my mind at the time, and I would feel better for saying. No matter if anyone read it or not. 

It was something for me, something where I could just write down my thoughts so that my head wouldn’t explode. But then I realized that I’ve been going about this the wrong way. It doesn’t matter what I would post, because it’s just another post in a sea of endless thoughts, memories, goals, poetry. The real gem was reaching out and getting to know some of the other people on here. I feel like I probably mention this way too much, but I’ve learned a lot more about myself through the writings of others. 

I remember a lot of my earlier posts would be just complaining, complaining about things that didn’t even matter. However, when I got to read some of the other posts out there, I immediately realized that I could have it worse, so much worse. It really put into perspective what I am thankful for, no matter how small or insignificant it may be. Time is the most precious gift, words from the heart were the best medicine. Anyways, if you are reading this, YOU, you are the reason that I still come back to this website 2 years later. Even if you’re one of my regulars [looking at you pouringmyartout], or if you’re just stopping by because of a random post that you had some sort of connection with. The Lucid Dreaming one seems to be a hit…I’ve seen a lot of WP accounts start, then die off and then just disappear and it does feel like I’m losing a bit of myself, especially if I ever had the opportunity to exchange words with you. 

I make it a point to get back to every person that has either followed, commented, liked because I think that it’s important that if you took the time to reach out, why don’t I have the time to return the favor? Anyways, thanks for all the support everyone. Those awards that I received…all from you. To me WP awards don’t really mean too much, but just the fact that someone took the time to nominate me for my mediocre writing (ha!) is what really means the most. Which is why I do them, so that I could get recognition back your way. Life is good on this end, I wish the same for you on yours. Just have to remember that happiness is the journey, not the destination. Keep being awesome! [Also I just realized this is my 90th post, good way to end to years with a even number :P

On Windy Days has been tagged

So. I’ve been tagged by Miss Addie from Betwixt and Between. At first, I had no idea what being tagged was. I just figured it was…actually I didn’t know what it was. Haha, but thanks for the tag! And I will try my best to answer the questions with something that will give a little more insight to who I am. So Addie, here you go.

But before we get down to business, here are the rules:

  1. You must post the rules.
  2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
  3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
  4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

So now here are the things Addie wants to know about me:

1. What is the weirdest question you’ve ever been asked?

I’ve had quite a few…however I can’t seem to remember any of the good ones. But the most recent one that I had was of this man who wanted to know which High School I go to. Ok guy. I’m in college first of all. And does my university apparel not give enough clues as to where I go?? Well, I guess it’s a good thing that people think I’m younger than I am, better than it being the other way around.

2. Given the choice of time travel, would you go back in time or forward?

Whoo boy, well if I had a choice like that I would want to go back in time. I would give anything to see what I was like when I was little and from another point of view. I would also want to see my family as they were when they were together. I think it would have been a really peaceful setting. I wouldn’t choose to go forward in time because I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future and I would like to keep it that way. Keep it a little surprise, if you know what I mean.

3. What is your favorite late-night snack?

Ice cream. I love ice cream! But usually I don’t have the money to buy luxuries like that…Ima poor college kid!! One thing though, that ice cream may be the best thing as it enters my mouth but I feel like trash the next day. Nothing a little workout can’t fix though right?!

4. Tell us your weirdest dream.

I’ve had quite a few weird dreams. And this might be considered cheating…but this one takes the cake for the most recent weirdest dream:

I was Superman…for a second.

5. Describe the perfect date.

Hmm, well the perfect date huh? I think this perfect date would entail just a good evening of hanging out. I couldn’t care less about what we did but as long I was with that person, that would be perfect for me ;)

6. What song is stuck in your head?

as well as…

7. What is the best way to develop a positive attitude?

The best way to develop positive attitude is knowing that you are worth something. You may not know it, but there is always someone that looks up to you as an example. That one took me a while to figure out but knowing that I (out of all people) am a role model really changed my views on how I should conduct myself. Not only that but just appreciating all of the little things life throws at you. You could be in such a worse state than the one you’re in now. You could have to struggle to survive everyday, knowing that food is not always a guarantee, that the home you may have now at the moment could be a different place tomorrow. Just being able to read this post in your comfortable room/library/wherever you may be already puts you in the top percentage of the worlds population in terms of being in a comfortable living environment. Appreciate everything.

8. If you could invite four people-living or dead- to a dinner party, who would they be?

I would definitely want to invite Bruce Lee, Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King Jr., and Steve Carrell (for some comic relief). I think that it would be great to have living examples of leadership. I mean yea, I can read about them all I want but it would be a totally different/awesome experience to actually have a chance to talk to them. Especially Bruce Lee, I absolutely love the philosophies that he holds towards living life. Such a shame that he had to go way too early.

9. Who is your look-alike?

I’ve had a few people tell me that I look like Jet Li. Haha, which is pretty cool but I don’t see that much of a resemblance. However, I am a huge fan of Jet!!

My Hero!!

10. What is your answering machine away message? If you don’t have one, you can make it up!

beeeeep…”Hi there. This is Simon speaking. I’m home right now, and in a moment, I’ll have a decision to make. Leave your name and number and I’ll be thinking about it…” Hahaha.

11. It’s said that you learn something new every day. What did you learn today?

I learned that it’s good to take a break every once in a while. I’ve been just a little stressed this past week. Heck this past month. And I’ve actually had a chance just to relax a bit, talk with the family, hang with friends. You would be surprised how much something as little as that can help to pick you back up so that when the storm comes again, you’ll be ready.

Here are the people I would love to know more about! :

  1. Royal Bums
  2. The OC
  3. Barefoot Baroness
  4. olivianp
  5. bittercharm
  6. Maiya
  7. thacourtjester
  8. nocturnaldaydreams
  9. Sanchari
  10. purposefullyawkward
  11. demonsking19
 And last but certainly not least, to a very kind person:

And here are your questions:

  1. Well, since you’ve been tagged…that obviously means you have a blog. What led you to create it?
  2. What country are you from, and if you had the opportunity what country would you like to visit?
  3. If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be?
  4. What is the last book that you read, and did you enjoy it?
  5. What is the one greatest piece of advice that you have had the opportunity to receive from someone?
  6. If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. With whom would it be?
  7. If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
  8. If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title would be?
  9. How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
  10. Who has had the most impact in your life?
  11. (Hehe) And how did you first find this blog?

Well Addie, hopefully you enjoyed that! Those questions really took a bit of time to think about but great questions nonetheless :D

They’re starting to tailor, alright.

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to receive a spam comment just so I could see how horribly put together it would be. Especially for things that I was writing about. So especially after reading this post a while back by someone that has an art with colorful language (haha, I meant that as a compliment ;D), you could imagine the joy that I recieved when I finally got one of my own. I was able to actually read this one before it was deleted and I couldn’t help but think ‘Wait, what the hell…’ Well anyways, here it is:

I don’t expect anyone to read through that entire thing. I know I didn’t. I’m guessing that the original was in another language, but somehow, something horrible happened in the translation process. Not only did this turn into an abomination but I have no idea what it’s trying to say to me… I thought my first spam comment would have been pretty entertaining but this just takes the cake. I got a freaking story, a novella. Good to know that I’m worth typing up an entire manuscript detailing the life of some fictional person that had found “the amazing discovery of her forehead”.

The Versatile Blogger

Hmm, so I want to give many thanks to Glamorholic for nominating me for this award. Glamorholic and I have been blogging since the same time and she was the first person that actually read some of the things that I wrote. Actually every single thing, come to think of it. So I want to thank her for that and for having a blog that has the most interesting facts/images you can possibly find. (I wonder how many times I can hyperlink her blog…)Anyways, I had no idea that there were even awards for blogging…For the most part, it’s been just me complaining about how creepy my roommates are and how Artic-frigid my room is. But hey seeing this after coming home from the brutal campaigns that I’ve waged against my finals was a bit of a nice surprise. That and all of a sudden there are people reading my posts…What is this sudden turn of events that I am witnessing???

Oh, I also wanted to extend that gratitude to alphabravoecho for the nomination. He always posts about what’s on his mind. No holds barred. Another writer that is an inspiration for me to keep writing and be true to myself. I’ve noticed that a lot of the things that I write are in either of two categories. They are either my attempt at being funny…or really things that I’ve put some thought into (this usually happens when it’s windy outside) and I’ve always been in conflict whether I should post those words that have come directly from the heart. Before meeting alphabravoecho, I would usually type up something that really had meaning to me but would end up just erasing it for fear of being turned down and ridiculed for being ‘soft’ as some would say. But one thing that I’ve learned from alpha was that just be true to yourself and it doesn’t matter what others think, because you will always find support in the places you least expect. (P.S. I’m not soft, loving to write is not synonymous with being soft you mothers!!)

Once more, I’d like to extend that thanks to Wilhelmina Upton. She was kind enough to nominate me for this award as well. She is definitely one of the kindest people that I have had the chance to meet on wordpress. The first thing that came to my mind when I was reading through her posts was this saying that I remember; that the kindest people are the ones that have suffered the most. Now I might be totally going out on a limb, but the more posts that I read and the more that I got to know about Wilhelmina (which is not her real name by the way :P ) the more in common that we just seemed to have. And it really made me think about who I am, and what it took for me to get here and just the struggles that I overcame, to have this beautiful hope in this life that we have to live. And I can only imagine what it took her to gain that unparalleled kindness and humbleness that she wields. Anyways, that’s my little spiel on you Wilhelmina! I thank you once again for the nomination :)

Another thanks to Tanya over at Green Paw-Paw for the nomination! I had just recently run across her blog when I should have been studying for some finals a couple weeks back. Shame on me. However, the fact that she likes Bone makes her totally awesome haha! She definitely takes delight with everything that is literature and that adoration emanates from her posts as well. Whether she writes about the latest book, book trends, book muggles, anything book related; she is able to deliver that excitement through her words. Which I feel is a hard thing to do. Every post is very open, easy-going, and often humorous. Before you know it, one just leads to another and that time just flies away. But in a good way! Anyways, thank you once again for the nomination Tanya, and I will definitely be around for more :) “And that’s another thing! I’m tired of stew! I want to put him in a crust and bake a light fluffy quiche!” – ;)

Here are the rules for the Versatile Blogger Award:                                                                           

  1. Nominate 10-15 fellow bloggers
  2. Inform the bloggers of their nomination
  3. Share 7 random things about yourself
  4. Thank the blogger who nominated you
  5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award Pic on your blog post.

So here are my nominations(In no particular order, all are equally as amazing!):

Alright, hmm, so 7 random things about me that no one knows huh…

  1. I was born in Stuttgart, Germany. My dad was in the Army so we really got to travel a lot. Too bad though that I don’t remember any of it since I was just a baby.
  2. The first animal that I actually ‘hunted’, was a rabbit by my house. It was with a pellet gun and being only 10 at the time, I felt really bad that I killed it. So while crying, I dug a grave for it and put a little cross on top so that it wouldn’t have to pass away in vain.
  3. I love to laugh…so much that I woke myself up from sleep just last night, from laughter. Probably because I was thirsty, and maybe even a bit stressed out because of the impending wave of finals. But why would I laugh though?
  4. On my bed right now is a massive mink blanket of a lion. It’s kind of weird at first but hey, it keeps me warm. Plus you got to do what you can when your house is colder than your refrigerator.
  5. I guess people that know me well say that I don’t say much and can keep to myself, but in reality I love being around them. Even though I may not have everything to say, just being in the company of friends really does wonders for me.
  6. I actually created this blog to not have to face the reality that I had a test to study for. It was one of those bad decisions that actually did more good…overall. I still did well on the test haha. But, I was able to meet many people with so many different things to say, so awesome.
  7. I love listening to music, it is one of those few things that can directly speak to my soul. I don’t really have a favorite genre and if you looked at my playlist and took a random sample it would cover genres from classical to drum and bass. The only other thing that is very influential in my life is my love for God and His love for me. If it wasn’t for the big man up there, I wouldn’t be here.

So there you have it. Thanks once again Diana, for the nomination!

True Story

So this then concludes yet another semester of schooling for me. However, walking out of that final classroom (after getting my brain mauled, picked apart, reassembled, then fed to the dogs by the malicious efforts of my seemingly nice professor) I didn’t really expect the feeling of overpowering joy and happiness and not even a hint of the downright ecstasy that most people tend to feel after completing their finals. All week I’ve seen people walk out of classrooms with smiles big enough to wrap around their face, almost as if they had just punched King Kong in the nuts and lived to tell the tale. I really don’t know how to explain this feeling…disappointment? Ah, whatever. I did get some laughs though on the way to the guilloti…I mean classroom.

For example, one kid looked as though he had just drank a barrel of coffee before coming. And that was probably followed by pitchers of energy drinks by the looks of it. He looked so jittery and nervous that I could feel my eyes twitching just looking at him. He was just filled to the brim with energy. Actually if he wanted to, he probably could’ve punched the wall and the entire building would’ve flown away. But I’m glad he didn’t do that. Then there were the last minute/first time studiers. You have to be careful to ignore those people because they may have the information right, but overhearing their conversation…their reasoning was all wrong. They could trip you up too if you didn’t study thoroughly as you should have. The wind does not blow because a higher power had to release unnecessary flatulence. Not at all. But just listening to them try to reason out the concepts was indeed funny.

But after being able to talk with my mom over Skype for a bit, I remembered exactly why I was excited for this week to be over. I’ll be able to leave this house of horrors/refrigerator haha and be back home for a bit to enjoy some really needed break time. It’ll be really nice, actually it’ll be great! I’ll be able to eat real food once again, sleep in a bed that isn’t infested with spiders, and use a bathroom that doesn’t look like it was it was taken straight from the site of a 1492 English castle during the Dark Ages. I guess it just all depends on your perspective of things eh?

This guy obviously doesn't understand the concept. Or maybe just lacks perspective?

Pastime

So in my free time, besides writing posts I also like to make AMV’s of my favorite shows. Lately it’s been an Avatar the Last Airbender theme, and I also had the chance to take some time and make one for a friend last night. It’s really stress relieving for sure. It basically took all day yesterday but it was totally worth it. Here it is:

Haha I know it’s a kids show but hey, what can I say…maybe I’m still a kid at heart. Plus it wasn’t just any kids show, it was the greatest show of my childhood. I’m at that weird age where I’m not exactly an adult yet although the law may say I am, but mentally…eh it can be argued :P But I’m also not a teenager anymore. I can’t exactly hang around the McDonald’s playsets anymore without people thinking I’m crazy haha. But why would I want to?? What the hell am I talking about…those things are as disgusting as the underbelly of a recently commissioned sumo wrestler.

But yea, because of this I got no homework done yesterday…good thing I didn’t have too much. But with finals still around the corner I got to focus, so that I can wreck them like a high schooler driving in the snow, and go home to enjoy a good well deserved Christmas break with the family.

October 22, 2011

Definitely out the window…into the cold.

Hmm, so when I posted this, it decided not to be on top like a new post should but wanted to randomly be in the middle of all of my posts (yes all 4 of them…) So hopefully this one will be fixed. And my main picture for my page decided to switch to some peaceful snowy setting. What is going on?!?!? Anyways, I think I got everything back to normal.

So now it’s 11pm (edit*) and I happily bring to you the fact that I have done nothing today. Maybe besides the occasional gasp of air, a little time I set aside to feed myself, and a nice little video call with my parents and my brother…

nothing…

Uncle Sam about sums it up here.

I probably could’ve been more productive sleeping. But anyways, wow this has been a blog happy day. An overkill of posts. Overkill in relation to Halo. I probably won’t be able to do 4 blogs a day, because well, frankly, I do have a life. Not the kind where I eat Giraffe Burgers for breakfast, BASE jump for an afternoon activity, and map the Aurora Borealis before bed. Still getting the hang of this…I really don’t know if I should do one long post at the end of the week, or just a bunch of small ones throughout the week. I realize that when I read other blogger’s work…the longer a post gets the faster my attention is lost to the same void where my saturday went (unless I’m reeeeallly interested, like how to crochet pffft haha) Hmm, so alright, I’ll try to keep it short and to the point. It usually never gets as bad as this, but today was just a day lost to the cause. Talking to my parents was good, I always look forward to it. My roommates can be a bit eccentric (<—-understatement) at times but what can you do? Make a blog that’s what. Anyways, I’m over school right now. It has got to be break like in 5 minutes, because I don’t know how much longer I can stand dealing with the myriad of people one encounters on a college campus. (haha more on this soooon)

I should probably just end this day’s misery and go to sleep. Tomorrow is a new day, new opportunities (to procrastinate) just kidding. But really, I can’t get over how wasteful of a day today was. Somebody slap me, please.
