Nothing New

It is sad that the month of my birth always brings news of more idiotic people telling me what to do. This month, strangers are telling me who to vote for in this midterm election coming up on Tuesday. I am tired of the phone calls, the ads everywhere, and all the glossy publications sent to my home. Thanks for wasting my tax dollars to promote yourself you selfish bastards. What is even worse, is the brainless minions who follow these politicians blindly simply because they belong to a certain "party." Hmm donkey or elephant? Turd sandwich or giant douche? Doesn't sound like much of a choice. Did you forget what happened last time? Change and hope were chanted but nothing is new. Do you think these people actually care about you? They don't! They have their own agenda which is all about money and power. People have said to me, "Oh, well _____ is different. He/She actually wants to make a difference in the world and help people!" Uh huh sure. More like helping themselves.

Aren't you tired of strangers telling you what to do and making decisions for you? I stopped voting in 2004 after my first presidential election. I couldn't believe that people voted that retard from Texas back into office. How can that man have been chosen as the best and brightest in this country to lead us? I thought to myself what is the point of all this show? And that is exactly what it is, a giant money-making show to convince you that your voice is heard. Well, I have news for you. Your voice is not being heard, unless you can scream over the preteen girls crying out for Justin Bieber. Or maybe you should listen to the celebrities telling you what to do: "Buy these jeans and oh by the way, vote for ______." Yes, they know all about what's going on in this world. Or maybe you should look to the Bible about who to vote for.

If you have any kind of brain inside of your head, you would realize that this country is run by money and power. We have been lied to, people. The election and holiday seasons are great times to wake up and see what this world is really about. The hypocrisy is rampant. Get inside that brain of yours and try something new. Think for yourself!

P.S. If this post gets you upset or offends you, well my job is done.

P.S.S. Walorski and Donnelly, stop sending me your crap! I'm not voting for either of you losers. I will never be okay with strangers making decisions for me.

Can't control myself from writing 09 even though factually/knowledge based I know the truth. I am compelled by some unseen force telling me to remember tradition. Remember how my hand moved for an entire year every day in the same way when writing the date on a sticky note or log sheet (writing). Remember how we recite the date every day in class. Today is Tuesday, January nineteenth, two thousand nine (oops i mean ten :P...[speaking]). I may hear two thousand nine spoken by another and not notice it is incorrect (hearing). How long does it take to form new habits? Ruts? Spatial/verbal/heard memory? I have heard it somewhere that new habits take 2 weeks to form and keep in the brain. So does that mean continuously, every day, once a day? Might have to go check that one out.

Well, we know hopefully most of us should be able to write or say the date correctly by February. Whew! But, there are relapses throughout the year on occasion. Sometime mid June of this year, I will incorrectly write 2009 for the year when writing the date. Eh I'll be on summer break chillaxin by then, who cares ya know? :P

26th Year

A year of reflection. Of change. Thanks to all my friends and family for the birthday wishes this past week. It has been a great year and a wonderful day today! I'm in my favorite place with my favorite person. I love my life and the fact that my birthday falls on the busiest, in terms of traffic, shopping day of the year. Irony is my friend in so many ways. A smile comes to my face with just the thought. I couldn't resist the urge to share my thoughts on this evening ode to consumerism. How proud am I that the anniversary of my birth falls on the day that more Americans are in shopping malls than at home with their families on this glorious Friday; either working or shopping. On this weekend when we give thanks for the incredible spoiled bounty that overfills our cup spilling out into the surrounding land, flooding nearby villages and killing thousands; let us remember to find contentment in the little things in life like cheese, puppies, gooses and goodness.

Some prefer lies over the truth

So, let me ask you this question: Would you prefer to hear the truth even though it may hurt, or continue to be told a lie because it is comfortable? To me, the answer seems obvious. The truth is more valuable than precious gems or paper money or any other worthless trinket in this world in my opinion. Apparently, there are those who do not place a high value on honesty as I do. In fact, there was a recent situation locally where someone was completely honest with a loved one, only to have that loved one become hurt and distant. What a great idea! Let's punish the person who answers honestly! That does not make sense to me. All my relationships, family and friends, are based on honesty. What I look for most in those close to me is the ability to be candid, albeit with some tact. We tell the truth because we love. I have often heard from the lips of those closest to me some of the hardest truths to swallow. But, I do not walk away from the encounter with a lowered head. I stand tall, knowing that there was someone who cared for me enough to be direct with me. I thank that person for their honesty and our relationship will be that much stronger. How can a steady relationship be built on a foundation of dishonesty? Even sharing half-truths is a way to distance yourself from others. Now, I am not condoning the practice of telling everyone you know whatever is on your mind, but if they ask? Don't beat around the bush. Don't dish out more bullshit. There are mountains of it everywhere as it is. Try being honest. Yes, there is a chance for hurt feelings, even an end to the relationship. But for me, I would rather seek the truth than a lie. And if you have a friend or family member who comes to you with a truth of their own, embrace it. Cherish the momentary pain, and realize that it is a chance for growth if you let it. Everyone today is so afraid of getting hurt that they miss so much. Break down those walls and take a peek outside! It is beautiful!
