Ya Got to Deal with Consistency

Well I learned the use of the tab key. It really helps a ton these days and my computing life has ultimately transformed into a wonderworld of fast keystrokes.

So my endeavors to be more manly have been slowed and I have been desperately trying to get my attitude right but I have completely fallen into my old self. Like they say old habits die hard. But I haven't given up!   I will never give in, that is something that I have learned is to not quit even when you screw up you just have to keep trying, eventually you'll get the consistency that you want....

There's this great song by Barry White, "Get Up". He uses some language but not enough to be rated R or maybe even PG-13--anyway he speaks of doing something instead of sitting around--getting up-- and then staying consistent--stay up-- that is what I have to learn. God's grace be with me because Lord knows I'm bound to fail on my own strength...

No I haven't given up, I've just been a little busy.

Momentum Shift

Phew, What a weekend!!!.... Ok not really, in fact it was quite the opposite. I did school and worked... Nothing exciting....

Today was busy, Math for 5 hours in a day is not the best thing for my small brain. I received only a small lunch break for about 25 minutes... And now I'm taking a break from what should be another hour of studying history for my final test tomorrow.

It is hard for me to be creative when I am forced to learn things that kill creativity. Math does not inspire me with new ideas rather math says this is right and this is wrong don't try to get creative or you'll just screw the whole thing up.  History is a little different and does provide some ideas as to what to do with my life... Like maybe I'll become a Navy SEAL and kill terrorists like Osama bin Laden--Who is Now DEAD!!!! HooRAH! Oh yeah---Or perhaps I'll become a great politician and read off of teleprompters like Obama.--bleh-- But I don't think math is healthy for me. The only thing I have retained from math is that life has problems and sometimes the answers are imaginary and sometimes they are complex and sometimes there is no answer. Yikes, having no answer scares me. But really I'm having difficulty seeing beyond all my exams this week. I'm trying to take them out like a trained sniper of the scholastic infantry but my sights can't sit still long enough to take out my targets. But life goes on and eventually I'll make it through; the only other option I have is to die and that is something I cannot yeah looks like this week my see some reduction in blogging...nah I have to vent somehow.

AnyWay go have a few--drinks, cigarettes, Doughnuts, whatever you like-- Bin Laden is dead.

Good Bye Dixie

So my dog died today. After a long struggle to survive her heart finally stopped ticking and Dixie no longer greets me with her tail wagging after I come home from a long day of school and busyness. Sad day.  

Other adventures included  "parkour" with Anthony in David's yard. Anthony is pretty good at it, I....suck. But hey I did some rolls and jumped off some walls. Baby steps I suppose. Oh and I got up to watch the Royal Wedding. Ok I'm lying but that would have been a fun thing to do. hmm oh well.

Well my attitude was a little worse today--day 6 since I went on my quest-- I am going to blame this on lack of sleep and lack of coffee. I'm still very tired and have another long day tomorrow. Time to buckle down and grin and bear it.  
Gotta bounce (into bed)!

Today was fun. I didn't do a lick of math and I was out of the house the entire day.

This morning I finally drank my first cup of coffee without drinking a glass of water down behind it. Yeah I drink it black. I have discovered that is the manly way of drinking it. It actually has come to become a pleasant taste. Who knew? --Billions of others I would assume. 

Well, I have explored Asheville's more ghettoish places that I did not know existed and found some intense roads that were extremely fun to drive.  Ah driving stick in the mountains is sooo much fun!!

What will I do next?  Still haven't  done any parkour I still need to just go out and do it... 

Anyway.... Peace Out

Hmmm..... What now?

Has my enthusiasm puttered out at day 5? I haven't done anything very adventurous today.  But I think that's ok sometimes.... there are days--like this one-- that are mundane. I have yet to discover how to avoid these sullen days of gray but I am without a doubt working on it... Of course a math quiz that has taken most of my life to finish and a complete rejection of focus doesn't help either.

I am, sadly, tired and things are much harder when one can not think because one is so tired... just thought of somehting crazy todo... stay up all night doing math. Crazy. hmmm Let's turn this into an adventure. How many math labs can I get done between 12 and 2 am? Hahaha Yes! I found it! I found my calling! I am staying up until 2 doing math homework, who knows maybe I'll get ahead! Ugh at the same time the mind must be fresh to really do a good job at math, but it's worth a shot and since I haven't done anything crazy yet might as well... what have I to lose? well sleep I guess but who cares? 

Hmmm no witty anecdote or exciting thing to tell of.  Oh well sorry for wasting your precious time.

Running Across the Street

Glorified garbage is still, at the end of the day, garbage. I will not pretend to do anything special, and I'm not going to brag about anything I've done, mainly because I haven't really done anything...

 Today's adventures included running across tunnel road from Cook Out to Pet Smart, consuming a whole tube of ketchup plain and driving up Winding Ridge Rd.

Winding Ridge Road was really cool. a steep road to a bunch of empty housing lots. Driving on the curvy roads was a highlight... Yeah, school is still in... My creativity is not very high, and my will power is still not up to par but I'm not going to expect to much out of the first 4 days...I actually sort of liked ketchup...a short jog across 5 lanes was not that hard considering I live in Asheville. Man I love cookout fries...

I'm still laughing at the ridiculousness of all this. Why? Why? Why must I prove my manhood? hmmm.... maybe because I want to, maybe because I feel like I will get the girl, maybe I genuinely want to become a more well rounded person, whatever the reason I still just like not being depressed. 

Finding joy in the Journey. That's what I'm finding out how to do. Keeping Christ in the center and putting others ahead of myself is the key.

Day 3

Phew! The energy buzzing around is crazy and I have started to see the effect that a positive attitude has on ones surroundings.  I still got really tired today and took a nap but my overall attitude towards today's problems I am happy with. Today is today and tomorrow will take care of itself.

Today Spanish and Math posed threats to my attitude but I remained positive and had a lot more fun with it than I expected---- Conic Sections are interesting though I did fall asleep in math class for a few seconds...sorry Mrs. Sullivan I really do like the way you teach I just stayed up way to late last night...anyway... today I found my way home a little differently. I used the back roads and went through AVL's ghetto, a place I am not at all familiar with and eventually got to the back to the main roads. This led me to interesting thought. What makes a main road a main road? Why did that restaurant come  there or why is the Civic Center where it is? Does anybody really know? I don't but I'd love to know. And so begins my quest to find all of Asheville's back Roads!

The new foods that I more or less revisited were mustard and lettuce on my sandwich.  OOOhhh my gosh what an adventure! yeah yeah go ahead and laugh at me but this is how lame I actually am!  No real adventures... Maybe I'll skip class tomorrow!...nah... Maybe I'll skip the final... Anyway, I liked a little bit of mustard and lettuce on my ham and cheese sandwich, they complemented it. I also tried some Potato Salad... It was ok, but the texture of it seemed a little gross... but hey I tried it!

In other news, Libya is still in rebellion and Gaddafi has pulled his troops away from Misurata. Charlie Sheen was dumped over texting and I drank coffee for the second morning in a row...

My goal is to work up to real adventure, right now I'm just taking steps to becoming a less fragile person. No one like a picky eater, so eating different foods is a big deal for me. More things are to come!
Hahaha! I still laugh at this whole thing, for my pursuits are indeed laughable. Who do I think I am anyway? And honestly how long could this enthusiasm last? I hope that I do not lose my joyful attitude and I hope that I will always try new things. I hope that I will not get easily discouraged and that I will become a man of God.

 Peace Out yo
