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.

30 Day Challenge: Day 11

Family.

An uneasy topic to discuss, primarily because my viewpoint has been skewed  over the past years. They say family is forever which I agree on, but I have come to conclude your family is whatever you want it to be whether it be friends or your creepy collection of troll dolls. Family is what you make of it, plain and simple. We should strive to keep that family in our lives regardless of what they do, say, or think towards you because they will always be there for you in times of need; mine has and i’m eternally grateful for what they have done for me.

My sister is the closest thing I have to a twin, shes always around and hanging out with her is the craziest.
My brothers are never in sight as I have moved away from them, but the time I have spent with them are always cherished memories.
My father is stern, cold, hard-headed, and somewhat airy, but theres one thing that he will always do best. Love me.
My mother is lost in translation, nowhere to be found or heard, instead replaced by stepmothers after another.
My extended family are the ones I don’t know very well at all, I rarely talk to them and family reunions are awkward at most. Nothing much I can do, but I hope that I can come to know them better down the line.

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 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
