If I ever met you, I appreciate the love

Hello again its been a couple days and I am still getting this whole blog thing going. Thank you foremost for coming here and reading this, but more importantly please feel free to subscribe and question/comment.

Lets get started. I’d like to point out that all my titles for blogs come from song lyrics that hit me when I hear them. Just like O.A.R said “The best thing about music when it hits you, you feel no pain”. One of the truest statements i’ve ever heard. Music is a huge part of my life. Genre doesn’t matter as long as I can feel it in my soul. Anywho that could be a blog within itself.

I come to you this evening to talk about “Family”. This past weekend I had the opportunity to be apart of my Sisters wedding. THis is the second Sisters wedding that I’ve had the pleasure in being a part of. I am the oldest of us three and have always had the big brother thing going on I suppose. With the way people push Family aside these days I feel rather fortunate of having such a close one. The “perfect” family doesn’t exist I get it. For whatever reason though we are all searching for it? Family is what you make it. Built on items that an outsider cannot and will never understand. The trust you put in one another is a stronger trust a more meaninful trust. It’s the knowing as long as you have each other everything will be alright. It’s the assurance that it doesn’t matter what comes your way you’ve already managed some pretty tough times together and have come out on top. Growing up with a broken family at such a young age can leave kids broken and they lose focus of what is real. I have been rather fortunate in that matter. My Sisters and I have had this unbreakable bond from the start, 28 years later it still exist. The statement “Blood is Thicker than Water” has actual meaning to it between us. The tough times we have endured in the past has only better prepared us for the here and the now. It’s making the best of what you have or had.

I am not quite sure where I wanted to go with this blog, more or less just an appreciation of what I have. I am well aware of what is “real” in this world and “Home to me is reality” <– another O.A.R lyric. Having the pleasure of watching both of my Sisters get married will always carry a place in my heart. Having the pleasure of watching all my Family come together for these special times in all of our lives. I can only hope I pass on the morals and roots that my last name has carried through us up to this point.

These troubles won’t last forever

Never have I had a more pure title. “These troubles won’t last forever”. I am not even quite sure where I am going with this blog lol. I do know that my sister is getting married this weekend and that has been on my mind.

Family to me has been the utmost influential thing in my life to this day.  Until recently I thought it use to be friendships. The strongest friendships even have a breaking point. This isn’t to say they are dead nor lost. Some of the greatest dudes I have known up to this point have managed to finally distance themselves from who they truly are, but more importantly for who they wish they could still be. My father has always told me since graduating high-school that my “friends” will be gone one day. I started to not believe him because it has taken so long. The day is finally upon me as I approach each night the same. Seeking for something more. The social life I once was apart of is no more.

The very technologies that people have worked on for years to keep us a post away are the very same technologies that keep people in the shadows of their friends to this day. With the ability to tele-communicate 24hrs a day people are still longing for just a simple text message.  Have we became so caught up with technology we’ve forgotten to use it for its sole purpose? Telecommunication?

I have never understood the “complete give up” of the ones you care about the most . Mother fucker I have spent the past 22 years of my life building my friendships why the hell would I give up on them now. People get married, People have kids..I get it. Why is it a correlation in which they must give up friendships? I am sick of tired of dealing with the excuses day in and out. I understand family comes in between the friendships you’ve built all your life, but when I consider them family whats the rule?  Think about it since you have been in kindergarten you have been building friendships. Apparently the thing to do these days are to totally disregard and ignore these friendships you’ve spent a better of your life creating.  Society wants you to believe that it is acceptable.  SINCE WHEN is it acceptable to completely ignore the ones you have given the better part of your life to? The ones you truly care about?

I think I have had such a hard time because of the fact that I have given it my all…all my life I have given it my all. This is in regard to anyone I have ever come across, loved, befriended, or cared about. I have provided you with the foundation of my soul. Why? Because that is how we are suppose to treat people, right?  Honesty and purity are in itself a way to show complete care and love. Why the fuck would you neglect it in such a way in which it destroys any type of relationship we’ve ever had?

I guess I am tired of trying…however that is not a valid excuse for me to give up on it.  Since when has it been acceptable for people who “care” about one another to push it to the side?

Friendships use to be my way of life, However I am learning differently. Life is only what you make of it. Life is what you want it to be. Life is what you define it as. To the people out there that are bettering this world with someone or not I love you.  Please fight on in whatever you are passionate about. Your heart wont steer you wrong.

I’ve got a little bit longer

Apple has certainly made some steps going forward here (regardless if Android has already had some of these). Definitely some cool hardware upgrades as well as some iOS software updates I am intrigued about.

Two things remain hindering the iPhone still. Until Apple starts offering the user the ability to upgrade their own memory as opposed to buying in different tiers it will remain a second pick from Android users and myself as well. Also, until Apple starts offering more customization how is it suppose to win people over. I mean isn’t the end game in creating new phones to win other users over? It just never seems to be the case with Apple. They keep their users right where they want them. A few slight upgrades here and there. It baffles me, people who are Apple users completely ignore the Android interface.

I had an iPhone 4 for almost 3 years.  I know the iPhone 4 is back in the day at this point and time, however I also had an iPhone 5 for work. The simplicity of the iPhone is extremely nice, however after being an Android user for 2 years now the simplistic ways of the iPhone are the same for me now. No it did not take 2 years lol.  This is not a bashing of iPhone, because quite frankly for the first time since the iPhone 4 came to Verizon I am actually very intrigued by the new Apple products that are hitting the shelves withing the next month.

People As Places As People

Hello folks,

This is my first actual blog. It has taken me sometime to actually commit to something such as this. I guess I don’t get it, however I put journal like entries online everyday. So I ask myself “Why would I not just put them all in one place?”. So here it is. The words of me, the words of I, and the words of everything I previously have known. LOL I will use improper grammar and cuss like a sailor and probably offend 1-outta-7 people that visit this or read it. Have them call my assistant here –> 1-808-921-9176. 

“That is not proper!” Says the lady in a short red dress from a distance at my latest “Team Meeting” at work. I for one was confused was unsure as to what was actually going on, however this lady was determined “That is not proper!” as she uttered again.  HA I think to myself in semi-confusion to be honest.  “What the fuck is she talking about?” I said to myself.  It turns out she is complaining of the way my co-worker is greeting his members. Granted its the member that came to see him. My friend,  lets call him “Bill” he is greeting guest/members with the typical high-five. Nothing more and nothing less, but a good ole’ “high-five.”  It was of the kind where we’ve been drinking of course. You know the one’s where you yell the receivers name 15 seconds before actual contact takes place. Ones where your hand is in the air for a calculable distance as your walking towards your target. Anywho, fuck all that….cool story bro….not,

As I heard the word “proper”…WTF is “formal”? So I decided to look it up. Proper: truly what something is said or regarded to be; genuine.  HAHAHA I can tell you right now that is hilarious to me. There is no actual definition of “proper”. What is genuine to you? Hell, the only genuine items I know to be true in my life are items in which I deem genuine. Genuine items are user based, if I deem my lakeside apartments sunsets “genuine” that doesn’t mean that is genuine to the farmer looking over a beautiful sunset looking over his/her field of crops. 

Is proper a synonym of  conformity? Technically it isn’t and I am hoping my English major friends Ravin and Crickett can answer that :).  Truth be told they are not.   Words are only words with meaning because of the end user and how they interpret it. My understanding of words are different of yours and the people I know.

I guess what I am really getting at here is speak the truth in which any way you perceive it. We are all under a constant learning curve with this world, because this world that you and I live in is forever changing. If you don’t agree, I am terribly sorry. Today is way different than yesterday and yesterday isn’t even close to what is today. We as mankind have many variations as to what is supposed to be and what is reality. None of which are technically correct mind you.

I leave you with this first blog of mine. Interpret it as you would, interpret it as if I am hammered and speaking out of my ass and interpret it as if it is the utmost truth. However you may please interpret it, please interpret it with cognitive thoughts. Ask yourself “Why , How and Why”. Continue to push mankind and continue to question people like myself that are questioning the ways of what is “proper”, because there is no such thing.  At the end of the day, however these are my beliefs, thoughts, and interpretations as to what life is and not yours. You have every right to disagree and every right to agree. What is yours?

Once again these are the words of me, the words of I, and the words of everything I previously have known.

Goodnight Beautiful World,
