20


Guess what, fellow bloggers and fellow viewers?

Today, 9/29/10, is my 20th birthday! That's right, I have now lived 2 decades today!

It feels pretty cool saying that I've lived 2 decades. But I bet certain people would just say "Say you're 20 years old like a normal person, dammit." But I don't care.

I'm 2 decades old! Big 20, man!

And I got no regrets of anything, up to this day. It's made me the 20 year-old man and eagle I am today.

Violet


This is the newest member of the family's eagle nest and my very first dog:

Violet.

Descriptions:

Female Chihuaha Mix
4 months old
Black And White
Very Nervous on her fisrt day (so am I)

I felt pretty bad seperating her from her brother and sister, though. But the shelter wouldn't let us adopt even 2 puppies, at once. :(

Wish me luck in raising her! And if any of you have tips as to what we can do as first timers, commment on my blog or email me, and that'd be great. Thank you!

Hard Day's Work


Man, oh, man.

I have learned what it is to be a part of the working class. Macy's has sure taught me a valuable lesson.

A job may not be fun, but it makes you more of a man each and every time you work. And sore feet just means you did a good job. And worked hard.

Customers, registers, merchandise, co-workers, bosses, and impressing them. All of this, I handled today.

I feel good about myself knowing that I did good.

Now please help me feet.

Book and Music Whore, I Am.


It's coming back to me. I think it happened at Kepler's Books and Magazines in Menlo Park or at Raspudin's in Mountain View. I don't know, and I don't really care that much. It's still all coming back to me.

I knew music was my passion. It ranged from classic Rock to Thrash and Black Metal. Now it's books. I already had passion for books, as well, but it was minimized for a while when music came in the picture, particularly when I got my first iPod touch. I think now I know the book addiction came back at Raspudin's when I saw all those used books and Cd's for cheap prices.





David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Aztec Autumn and Aztec Fire by Gary Jennings
Mustaine by Dave Mustaine
Time Machine and other stories by H.G Wells.

I still seek:

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
My Friend Leonard by James Frey

That's usually my main reason to browse for books. But I'll still take whatever catches my attention.

I almost kept going, and I would if I had more cash. And when I do, I'll also be buying more music for my iPod touch. Maybe a few new apps for my collection.

It's more enticing than sex, sometimes, something that I've yet to experience for at least another year. I remember that day at Raspudin's, looking at everything in awe, feeling like I'm in a place better than a Playboy mansion.

I'm a whore for all this stuff. Although I am picky as to what I collect, it still makes me see myself as a whore for books and music. Although I think I'm cheating on both. But so what? If they're cheap/free, or I have the money, and if it's been on my list for collecting and interest, I'll take it.

Don't tell me to change my ways. Don't tell me about money saving. I at least have control of myself. Instead, how about you help me out by showing me more bookstores with used stuff and maybe give to me or sell me your old shit? Books and music Cd's, please!

Hypocracy


Hypocrite:

1.a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
2.a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, esp. one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

That's one of the things in this whole world that pisses me off. You do what you're supposed to be against, what you're supposed to stand against. And what pisses me off is what kinds of things people are hypocrites for.

I'll start with a small thing. A friend of mine who's name I shall keep anonymous. She dated this guy for a while, and they had sex, of course. But her parents are against doing that kind of thing, at least doing it before marriage, that is. Then guess what happens after they break up and she looks into other dudes? The ex-boyfriend bastard calls her parents and sends letters telling her parents lies about what she's doing, and that she's bringing them for visits in her apartment doing the very same things he and her used to do. He's only doing that to ruin any chances of getting with another guy other than him. That's being a hypocrite right there.

Let's not forget one of the biggest hypocrites of all: America. We're supposed to be this Christian, peaceful nation, right? Hell, no! Look at all the atrocities that this nation committed across the centuries. It pretty much started in England, where they came from. Enslaving other human beings, raping your slaves, cheating and pirating, and taking over other nations and forcing them against their will to become Christian. That's nothing of what God asked us to do to others. They pretty much bend the bible and twist it in their own lie.

Here's what else is going on: recently, gays and lesbians are no longer allowed to serve in the military. No Don't Ask Don't Tell, either. That's supposedly because we're based on a Christian start-up, right? What about the fact that we war in other countries and kill other people? We even have killed our own Christian brothers in the Civil War, and both World Wars.

I'd also like to include abortions, torture of U.S enemy prisoners, and embezzlement of our nation's money from certain presidents. And all the lies they've told us, as well.

FUCKIN HYPOCRACY!!! Either practice what you preach, or shut the hell up.

Metamorphis Direction


What society do I connect the term, metamorphosis with?

High school society.

All 4 years of high school were all like a book I read, a movie I watched. I felt both love and hatred for all of those around me.

My hatred for those I barely considered my own kind started at age 15 in English class, sophmore year. It made me lose hope in the future. It made me ask myself "These are the morons who are gonna run this world?"

That was when I pretty much lost hope.

When I graduated high school, I was surprised to see those who I once resented and doubted made it with me. There were also those my age who I knew were gonna do something with their lives. We all may be the same species, but many of our mentalities are different, more mature, more observant, anti-conformist. Most of these people were either close friends or those I talked to.

I remember reaching college at age 17. These were my people. Sure, they all smoked and still drank before age 21, but they still had a dream to chase, a life to head for; A good life, too.

My faith in humanity came back.

Then 2 years later, a wise woman once told me something that made totally sense to me:

It's mainly elementary and college students who are the most eager to learn, the ones with dreams. They're the ones we can truly count on. But in around middle and high school, something happens to all that. They lose direction. Something in that cocoon of theirs is screwing up their brains. It's all thanks to bad influences.

So once you're in metamorphosis, it's up to you to choose your own direction. If you choose the right path, you'll fly with the butterflies. If not, you'll fly, but you'll also face hell every single day of your life. It might also be your choice to die, but it ain't a good choice.

Keep in mind I don't stereotype every teenager out there. This is just from what I've seen perched on my tree. My eagle eyes see it all.

Either way, please make the right choices. Make the world a better place by not being like the screw-ups. Do this not for just the world even though you'd be making a difference. Don't do it just because I'm telling you to.

Do it for your benefit and well-being. You're doing yourself the favor, most of all.

Pathway


Where am I going? What am I doing? Will I make it? How determined am I?

Only I and God Himself know those answers. But above all, I make the choices. But I need Him to guide me, as well.

Swim To The Moon.

From The Ashes Rises A Phoenix


Dave Mustaine, Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, J.K Rowling. These are several people I can describe with what I like to call "Phoenix."

A lot of people think that the way these people are, they must've been rich or something, right? Not really. Actually, many of these kinds of people have started with literally nothing. Well, maybe some with parents, but disfuctional ones, at the most. Some have been homeless begging for money on the streets of England.

But they all had a dream, an idea, feelings they wanted to express to the world. And that's just what they did. And guess what? J.K Rowling has so much money, she doesn't know where to keep it all!

You don't need money to become rich, or to start out in the path of success. It doesn't matter what your background is our what your previous decisions of your own or others have made. All you need is determination and dreams. And never stop till they become reality. If these kind of people can make it starting with nothing, you can, too. Just believe.

25 Cent Karma


I had a pretty interesting episode today as I went out for another day of job hunting.

I was waiting for a bus to head out after delivering a love card to my lady. As I was waiting around, this shirtless dude came by, and he asked me for a quarter. I gladly gave it to him, of course. He kinda did look at it all in awe, for some reason. Oh, well.

Then when I got on my second bus a few minutes later, guess what I find on the floor? A quarter!

It seems like karma may be real, after all. And the universe payed me back the quarter it owed me. Funny day, huh?
