Put your foot down

Sometimes you just gotta put your foot down. Sometimes life just kicks you in the ass and you don’t know how to get back up. You don’t know if it’s even worth it to get back up. When you feel all the anger and bitterness you’ve been holding down all those years. Those pent up repressed feels boil over and you mind begins to erupt into a nuclear meltdown. It seems like nothing is there but anger. All you feel is angry. All you see is that hot bright red flash that constantly taunts. The red flash starts to develop a voice. It says you aren’t good enough. It say that you deserve all the bad shit that is happening to you. It says that you weren’t smart enough to stop the pain. You fight the voice but it does not goes away. In fact the more you fight the louder the voice gets. Until finally the voice becomes a roar, screaming at you more and more. The shouting becomes so loud that you can no longer hear you’re own voice. The shouting is your voice. Eventually it subsides, but that doesn’t mean that voice is gone. No, it’s just hiding, waiting to remind you of all your insecurities and failures. To remind you of how you screwed up time and time again. To make you carry that guilt until it crushes you.

But guess what? That’s bullshit. When that voice comes back you put your foot down and crush it’s toes. You are good enough, even if no one else thinks so. You did make mistakes, but everyone does. No one is perfect. You drop that guilt and never look back because you know a man is worth more than the sum of his mistakes. And when that’s all done you look yourself directly in the mirror and say “I am important. I matter and no one can that away from me.” You repeat it until that voice is reduced to less than a whisper. Sometimes you just gotta put your foot down.


The Challenge 2015: #19

Challenge Activity: Make your own birthday, anniversary, valentines or celebration cards

Date Completed: 2/7/15


Summary: Yesterday my good friend Becca and I decided to make paper hearts for our residents. Since we are both CA’s we had access to a variety of colored construction paper and crafting tools. To make the valentines hearts you just fold a piece of paper into fourths. After the paper is folded take a pencil and trace one half of a heart. Next you carefully cut along the line you traced and bam! You just created four tiny valentines!

Also since my birthday is coming up soon (Feb 10) Becca surprised me with a plate of brownies! How awesome is that?!

The Meaning of Rhetoric

Here is a blog post I wrote for my college Technical Writing class


For some reason the first post on a new blog is always the most difficult one. I’ve maintained a personal blog for about a year now so you think I would have some clue as to where to start, but sadly that isn’t case. The guidelines for this blog are pretty simple. It just needs to have five-hundred fifty words and somehow be related to class. So where do I begin?

I left Technical Writing on Monday racking my brain for something to write about. The word count did not phase me, but trying to find a topic quickly turned into an annoyance. I blankly stared at my laptop screen hoping a spark of inspiration would magically find its way to my cranium. When that failed I burned through four episodes of How I Met Your Mother on Netflix and moved on. Now it’s Tuesday night and I need to…

Join Us in the Fight For Net Neutrality

I encourage everyone to participate in this protest!

The WordPress.com Blog

“Net Neutrality” is the simple but powerful principle that cable and broadband providers must treat all internet traffic equally. Whether you’re loading a blog post on WordPress.com, streaming House of Cards on Netflix, or browsing handcrafted tea cozies on Etsy, your internet provider can’t degrade your connection speed, block sites, or charge a toll based on the content that you’re viewing.

Net neutrality has defined the internet since its inception, and it’s hard to argue with the results: the internet is the most powerful engine of economic growth and free expression in history. Most importantly, the open internet is characterized by companies, products, and ideas that survive or fail depending on their own merit — not on whether they have preferred deals in place with a broadband service provider. Unfortunately, the principle of net neutrality, and the open internet that we know and love, is under attack.

Net Neutrality under…

Heartbeat: The Midnight Detective

Special thanks to The Fickle Heartbeat for sharing my story! All of your comments were great!

The Fickle Heartbeat

So long my loveless romance.

Shared by Patrick Berridge.

I stay up late at night thinking about the same problem I’ve been having for the past four years. Every time I’ve had something I love, I lose it and begin to lose my sanity. I’ve always thought it was easier to live life as a lone drifter. No home, no people holding you back. You look out for yourself and watch your own back. People like me find comfort in solitude. It’s a fleeting luxury of course; After a while, all you want is the presence of another human being and so you do the unthinkable: you trust.

You trust others when they speak and you give people the benefit of the doubt, because you believe everyone has noble intentions until one day finally it happens. By chances of pure coincidence you meet someone, but this person isn’t just anyone. No this individual…
