30 Day Challenge: Day 15

My Zodiac/Horoscope and If I Think It Fits My Personality.

I am a Libra and over the years I have labeled myself as just that. I wasn’t always that way, it never appealed to me in the past, but now that I am grown up with responsibilities and other “grown-up stuff” the Horoscopes that I’ve seen actually have some amount of reality to them. Not always, but enough that I could sit down at the end of the day and ponder the nature of these astrological readings.

This can be found in my previous post Astrological Pseudoscience where it talks about my sign and the resemblances pertaining to it. When it comes to my personality, let’s just say that I could be the spokesperson for the Libra Nation. Most of those who know me and read this will definitely be able to tell that sometimes all of it isn’t just baloney.

Libra in a Nutshell:

Libras are the diplomat of the zodiac. They are able to put themselves in other’s shoes and see things through another person’s point of view. They are the ones that always want to make things right and have balance and harmony in their life, their surroundings and the lives of the people close to them. They have captivating charm, elegant taste and they are easy to like due to their eager-to-please, easygoing nature. In return for a Libra’s amazing ability to be a good listener, sooth and calm people, they expect admiration. Libras will gather a group of people, everyone will become friends then the Libra will be in the center of the group. They like the attention and the admiration for the people that they have brought together. Libras are very intelligent, they often hide this inside their easygoing exterior. They express their intelligence through creativity, most are involved in some sort of artistic or creative pursuit. Many people overlook just how intelligent a Libra actually is. When others see a Libras wide range of interests and hobbies, their intelligence and creativity is more then obvious. Libras love variety and different situations. They welcome change. Libras love luxury. They will spend lots of money and surround themselves with beautiful things and they seem to be constantly fussing over their appearance. They love anything upscale and classy. Libras work hard to please others, this they do an others find them incredibly captivating.

Day Fourteen: What I Wore Today.

Well let’s see here…a subject like this would be short from the very beginning, due to the fact that the only thing I have worn since my awakening is black plaid pajamas and a purple team shirt from my previous occupation.

On the list for the rest of the day seems to be dark jeans, a blue dress shirt, a black textured vest, and a black tie. It is classy-flashy Friday, why not go all out?

30 Day Challenge: Day 9

For Day nine I must give my output on How Important I Think Education Is.

Education is a outdated process. Face it, the world is changing, people are changing any we need a new way to teach our next generations. A way in which they will be able to retain information when most needed either in real life problems (Algebra is in this list of the unneeded…) or in the chosen career field that is most favorable to an individual. Perhaps some program presented early in childhood to help discover the talents and level of intelligence then giving a completely customized educational training to fulfill that chosen path.
I don’t know if I have the proper ground to stand on since I never paid attention in school (Note that I was mostly a trouble maker too.), I always felt like I didn’t belong and what I was learning was far from what I was interested in. Math fried my brain and english restricted my creative expressiveness in writing (However for humanity’s sake proper grammar is always a necessity). I wanted more science, more particle and astrological physics, but I would have to wait for college for those subjects to even surface.

My point: Education is very important, but change is needed to teach effectively and certain ways are not helping retain the most important information to progress further in this life and in our careers.

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.

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.
