30 Day Challenge: Day 8

For Day Eight of the challenge, I am to write down What I Ate Today.

Well, I’ll start off by saying that no one reads a good post at ten in the evening (Yes, I’m giving that weird stare at you good citizen) so I decided it would be best to write what I devoured yesterday.

I began the day right with my usual combination of eggs and bacon, casually mixed within an omelette like shape (or what I tried to shape as an omelette) and a glass of milk. I call it a power combo, only because they say it’s good for my daily workout.
Mid Day arrives and I break the dieting rule by purchasing a 44oz. soda from a convenience store. (*hides head in shame*) Nothing was stuffed into my pie-hole until later in the night when I was kindly invited by my best friend for dinner at his place, serving spaghetti and a little…”extra”.

30 Day Challenge: Day 7

Day seven has come around and now I get to list Five Pet Peeves.

There are many things that absolutely boil my blood. Things I wish I could eradicate from the face of this planet (or wipe from human minds). As much as I may hate them, the only thing I can do is complain about them.

  1. Eating with Your Mouth Open/Making Noise while Eating– If you want to send shivers down my spine, please don’t hesitate in performing these two actions. Manners people, manners.
  2. Not Meaning What You Say– If you say anything, make sure you mean it with everything you have inside you. If you didn’t the first time, you probably shouldn’t have said it at all.
  3. Stupidity– Need I say more? Grow a brain or dig a hole; the choice is yours.
  4. Cutting Your Tongue on Jolly Ranchers– It hurts.
  5. Waking Up With Messy Hair– Come on, I have an image to maintain and I can’t do that if it looks as if gerbils have moved in the follicle jungle overnight.

30 Day Challenge: Day 6

Day six: My Views on Mainstream Music.

Deadmau5, Bruno Mars, Adele, One Direction; we all know these bands in one way or another and a lot of the songs that we hear today are mostly by these people (unless you manually change the channel/station, or you’re deaf, etc.) I must say, the talent of a lot of todays artists are extremely talented and with such a fine taste of music that’s saying quite a bit.

Deadmau5 is a great example along with the likes of Skrillex, it may be electronically synthesised beats and rhythms, but it creates an amazing composition that no average person can pull off. Maroon 5 has been at the top of the charts for as long as I can remember, and they deserve it. Their songs are catchy and you can’t help to sing-along to every one. I have a few other bands on my mind that I love to listen to, but when it comes to hip-hop or rap, that’s when my views of mainstream go…downstream. Overall, todays music is evolving rapidly and tomorrow’s will only get better and better.

30 Day Challenge: Day 5

It comes to Day Five and the next subject happens to be to write Things I Would Say to an Ex.

I never had an ex-girlfriend. Something I’m particularly proud of.  Anyway, I decided that should use the subject as if I happened to exist in an alternate dimension.

I would say thank you. For whatever reason we broke up or left each other, you made me realize you simply were not the one who I was destined to be with my entire life. I would’ve enjoyed it, but that would mean depriving someone truly in need and deserving of my love. We had a great time together and I have no regrets for anything we did, said, or wished for. The memories that we share will remind me of how much worth I have to someone and while it may be bitter at first to smile at them, when I do marry the one, a smile of gratefulness will be seen. Grateful that because of our choices, it made us into the people we were supposed to be, to find the one God made for us. Thank you.

30 Day Challenge: Day 4

For Day Four, the next on the challenge list is to Bullet My Whole Day.

  • I wake up at 11:05, picking up my cell phone to check the time in a zombie-like fashion.
  • I manage to stumble to the bathroom to commence with shower.
  • *censored*
  • I find a suitable outfit to slip into that doesn’t conflict with work policies.
  • I gather my belongings for the bike ride to the occupational facility.
  • I ride my bike to said occupational facility.
  • I walk in and almost instantly, a sense of dread and depression fills my body.
  • My shift begins and I sit at my designated workstation which doubles as a prison cell.
  • I get my first call after pulling up the necessary systems to do my job “properly”.
  • My blood pressure rises as the customer yells with enough volume to rupture both eardrums.
  • (Repeat above for two hours.)
  • Break time arrives in which I walk several feet to another room simply to sit back down.
  • It’s over and the yelling continues for two more hours.
  • Lunch with Friends.
  • Back to the phone for four more hours till end of jail sentence.
  • I hop back on my dual-wheeled transportation device and peddle my way back home while listening to relaxing Skrillex.
  • I arrive and crash onto my bed. Then I turn on my Xbox to kill Covenant forces in therapeutic relaxation.

That’s my day. My week on repeat.

30 Day Challenge: Day 3

Day three calls for A Book I Love.

A hard one for me, since I love many books, but one that I seem to adore more than most is…

This book has to be one of the best books that I have ever read page by page. In fact it may be the best book of the entire 17th Century as a landmark of true gothic literature.
The story starts off with Robert Walton, the captain of a ship who’s voyage is to reach the North Pole, writes in letters to his sister that during his travels he found a Victor Frankenstein who was in pursuit of another man of much larger stature seen by the crew earlier during the day. After rescuing the partially frozen doctor, he begins to tell Robert his life story which has led him to this point.

Being involved in the studies of natural sciences during his adolescence he quickly develops the obsession of wanting to  imbue inanimate bodies with life, entering the University of Ingolstadt to further investigate the secret technique. He imagines his creation of reanimated body parts to be beautiful and a gift to science, but instead it turns out hideous in his eyes and becomes repulsed in its awakening. The monster flees, leaving Victor to travel back to his home where he finds his brother William killed by the rogue creation’s hands. From that point Victor must find the monster and not only stop it from killing again, but to erase it from the existence he granted unto it.

Horror, Science Fiction, Suspense, and even Romance are stitched (pun unintended) together to create a compelling and magnificent novel. The favorite thing about this book is the true demeanor of the “monster” which is described as a sensitive, emotional creature who only seeks to share his life with another being like himself. The story portrays him as intelligent and literate after observing people and reading books in the reclusive time of his escape from humanity. In many ways the creation was seen as more human than Dr. Frankenstein himself and those who feared and judged him for his appearance. In his attempt to rescue a small girl from a river he is shot down by a witness, becoming enraged with grief and despair to the point he vows revenge for being brought into the world.

I must give this a 5-star; a 10-out-of-10 rating for such a work of literary genius.

30 Day Challenge: Day 2

For Day Two I’ve sat pondering what I would write for the next item on the list is to Write Something I Feel Strongly About.

Following your dreams.

Everyone has one regardless of the life they have lived and many people are too afraid to go out and get it.
I see it as a waste of our talents and inner worth as I see some people to be so much more than they make themselves to be. Some however are inhibited from following the necessary tasks to complete that dream due to other situations and imposing elements, but there’s always a time in life to accomplish it either in youth or old age.
Things worth accomplishing aren’t easy and the obstacles ahead may seem impassable, but nothing is impossible. It doesn’t matter how far it is, how long it could take, or how much you have to push yourself, it’s al worth it in the end.

I believe that we should all strive to dream big and give it all we have, ignoring the negative voices from ourselves and others. If we have the courage to pursue them, nothing can stop you.
