Second Life, Second Chances and Everything Life Gives You

Heard a podcast from the LLU church about perspectives. The speaker was telling a story about how he had to take his wife's car to the gas station to put some air in one of the tires because it was low. His neighbor said that he had a air compressor and they could do it there. So he drives the car across the street and while the pump is filling the tire with air, they talk. When the tire's full, he gets ready to leave when suddenly he hears a hissing sound he never wanted to hear. He admitted that if his neighbor didn't hear it too, he would have driven off and ignored the sound of the leaking air. But his neighbor insisted that he do something about it because if he didn't, the tire would blow out and it could cause some irreversible damage.
The speaker said that if he had ignored the tire damage like he wanted, he would have went on his way. But his neighbor recognized the signs of trouble.

How often do we choose to ignore the obvious signs of trouble in our own lives and relationships, and only wake up one day to find that that small leak or crack grew into something bigger and out of control. Sometimes I think we could all use a little time to take a step back and look at ourselves to see if everything doesn't just look fine, but that there aren't any leaks or cracks that'll lead to something even worse.

But if I could share anything with my future children someday it's if I've learned anything this year, it would be that it's never too late for anything. If you want it bad enough, you can do it. I might have learned that the hard way, but here I am, moving to Indiana for God only really knows how long but to write the next chapter of my life. As David Tennant so eloquently put it,

"Come on, next chapter's this way.."

Writer's Block: Happy birthday Mr. President!

What is one thing that needs to be changed in your country?

Education, make our education the top in the world that it could have been, and may have once been, and everything else will follow.

Because Sometimes It's Just Worth It

The last time I touched this, was just before Halloween of '10. I was thinking of making a Halloween playlist for that very special night, but as with most things I simply kept putting it off- and this to boot.

But I think it's time for a change, and a new start. After rummaging through some old things, letters, old journals and photos all scribbled on the back, I found a quote I had once used so many times it became my Scripture,

"The future is not set, and my choices are my own. And yet how ironic, for now i find that I have no choice left at all."

I couldn't tell you where it came from, just that I was so taken with that line that I had to write it down.

But a quick little update, for all those curious eyes out there. Pirates of the Caribbean, not worth the twelve bucks I spent to see it. Tron: Legacy, best movie I've seen in years since The Dark Knight. Sucker Punch is visually stunning, story wise it could have been way better.

Okay so that's not really much of an update. So here's the scoop. Indianapolis, Indiana or bust. Yes, I'm moving to the Hoosier state this year to finish a degree (or two) and add to the playlist of my life (or reckless adventure, point of view). I'm thinking of getting a dog before I head out that way- great way to stave off seasonal affective disorder (that's depression brought on by severe climate change), ironic that it's acronym is SAD.
I was going to keep a separate blog to keep track of my time from when I leave beautifully sunny California to my time there, but I remembered I had this and what a shame it would have been to neglect it any longer.

So till next time, stay calm and carry on.

Transformers: Wheeljack

(no subject)

I love watching Monsterquest on History channel. And I love arguing with the shows' host every five minutes, much like the avid sports fanatic who watches any given game on tv and knows what the coach didn't know about how to win the game. And I love the classic Sherlock Holmes tv series with Jeremy Brett, even though I haven't seen the new Sherlock Holmes movie with Downey Jr, I can say for sure that RDJ has nothing on JB. That said, I can see my own nerdy/geekiness because I point out (to myself) the transition from Victorian/Edwardian fashion to more 20th century fashion, in the show that is.
And a modern take on classic Transformers, as JD would put it, "it's HI-larious"


I have to admit, I'm amazingly impressed with the guy who made that Transformers cereal spoof, and to think I wasn't putting much stock in what new media grads could do.

I Grow Daffodils, And They're Beautiful

I should post more often, but I'm lazy like that. I should be working on those papers that are due tomorrow, but I'm putting that off because I'm not in the mood to write (irony anyone?) and I'm watching Shrek the Third (I still think Shrek 2 was the best). And today's the last day of the Darwin Anniversary guest lecture series at the school. I really want to go but I'm too lazy to look for my socks too. It was a wild night, let me tell you, ho boy. I really should get to working on those papers, and study for the upcoming psych exam on Thursday. Maybe.

I like to think that I'm a quick learner. As I quickly picked up pool last night.
It wasn't my first time playing the game, well actually it was my second.
But it was my first time formally playing the game - in real life.
I kick ass on cyber pool. Alvin kicked my ass last night in real pool.
But the last round we played was a close game.
I'm proud of that.

And in academic news, I was voted on the Hotlist. I have no idea what the hell that is. Seriously. I just got an email in my student email telling me that I had been voted into the Hotlist. If I'm not getting any money out of it, I could care less what it is.
