Reflections - An Excerpt from my Diary


7/25/2011 3:26:33 PM
Dear Diary:
Today appears to be a gloomy day.  It’s rainy and I completely overslept to the point that I missed out on HOPE and my interview with Prudential. Oh well.  I’m just shocked at what was supposed to a 10-min rest was like 6 hrs of sleep. At this point, I’m not setting a good example for myself. And that’s not good. But what can you do? Just being a schlep for the rest of my life? Yeah, buddy. I don’t think so. To say that it’s been a trying experience has got to be the understatement of the year.
It’s amazing that I hadn’t killed myself yet. Not that I will make light of something like that. That’s just the way how I feel sometimes. And with all of that going on in my life, one of my favorite singers, Amy Winehouse died over the weekend. She was only 27 years old. I’m 29 years old. Shit like this really puts things perspective. I mean she had her demon, but this chick could sing! I mean really sing.  It’s a shame man. I’m two years older than her and I feel like I haven’t even accomplished a tenth of what she had done in her short career. What am I supposed to do with myself?
I really hate asking myself these damn questions, like someone’s supposed to hand me the answers on a white sheet of paper, saying “Psst, where is the answers to life’s questions. Don’t pass it on.” Yeah, can I get “How about no for 400, Alex?”
It appears that I keep asking myself and my bloggers the same thing over and over like a broken record. Why is that? It’s like a need to be validated all the time. Looking for acceptance from everyone and everything I do, can only lead to deception, depression and downright desertion.  Oh, my personal favorite, destruction.
I have not yet given completely on myself, but I do have my moments. Do I really need to go there? Down that road of WTF. No. I’m not done yet. I still have to continue my pilgrimage and continue to learn what I need to learn. That’s just the nature order of things. You may be reluctant at times, but you’re always learning.
If this series of events have taught me anything in the past year or so is don’t take things for granted, or least try not to take things for granted. I have some time left to change and do what needs to be done.
Like I told Kaycee, last Wednesday that I have this undying will that keeps telling to continue pushing forward. Giving up is not an option for me anymore. Giving up is for fools and I’m not a fool. Well, a fool for love, but not a fool.
Well, let’s see what the next day brings. Btw I gave Kaycee a copy of my diary, I hope it was an interesting read and not too boring.

  1. Validation is a natural part of life. Some call it Right of passage others simply say growing up...most kill themselves before seeking it so consider yourself above. An artists demons cause improvement with their craft at most times...makes them feel free. Caged bird singing reference aside, You strike me as a no nonsense type wishing to uphold Ideals you have yet to perfect. Searching for answers no matter how easy can be necessary if you want to advance love while a burden on most of my kind is the last thing left when everything leaves especially when tested. until next time ....keep moving

  2. I am a no nonsense kind of person. Is that an issue? Maybe that's why I feel the way that I do.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
