What do you prefer???

"People always think they know what the truth is, but what you learn as you get older is that there is no truth, there is only bullshit. Layers of it. One layer of bullshit on top of another. And what you do in life is pick the layer of bullshit you prefer."
--Bernie LaPlante "Hero"

Reading is fundamental...

My book corner...

The Alchemist has been one of the best books I've read. Its been a while since I've yearned to flip to the next page to finish a book. I'm kind of upset with myself for setting on it for so long. But all in all if you've never read it, do yourself a favor and pick it up!!!

This book was the epitome of following your dreams and chasing your destiny, and doing what ever it; takes to make sure you get there. Yes, there are road blocks along the way. Yes there are going to be some people that will offer you things to keep you there with them, but in the end knowing what is truly out there for you and not stopping no matter what you may leave behind to return as a better and wiser person.

Never stop chasing your "Personal Legend" ...

Give me something to talk about...

Give me something to talk about, because I HATE small talk. I could care less about your superficial bullshit. Let’s dialogue. Engage with me in subjects of the heart and mind, converse with me. Let’s fill this time with topics about LIFE. Give me some kind of substance. Give me something that’s going to make me think about you later. Make an impression on my life. Don’t fill the void of silence with what the weather is like.

I mean I really, really, really, REALLY HATE small talk. Now I do understand that small talk is a part of everyday life, but do we really have to leave it like that? Give me something to talk about! And on the other hand, Silence is golden and I lot of us could use a crash course in “How to shut the fuck up and be still”. Why do you like to hear yourself talk, I mean do you not realize I’m not listening. I don’t want to hear about the troubles with your boyfriend/girlfriend or baby mama/daddy drama. I don’t want to hear about your latest sexcapades. I don’t want to hear about how you slammed your finger in your car door. I could care less about your day because I’m quite sure it’s the same ol' same ol' because nothing interesting happens in your life. Trust me I know you tell me this every day. Did I ask for this information, um NO. Don’t call and say you’re checking on me because if you wanted to do that you could have checked from your computer or phone, via facebook or twitter.


Now there are sometimes in life when this stuff is okay, but don't make it excessive, PLEASE!!!!
Be still; learn to listen to your thoughts. Open your eyes and look at the world. You are NOT the only person here. AND DON’T TRY TO USE YOUR “mind games” ON ME, because you’re probably too busy listening to yourself that you don’t realize you sound like an idiot.

How about this let’s engage in something, something like a conversation. Wait I can’t do that because you like to hear yourself talk. And for some reason you think that your opinion is the above all in all end all. Um it’s an opinion everyone has one. Hell no one can get a word in because you like to cut people off.

I guess this is why my first dates don’t make it to a second because I don’t know how to just talk about simple things. My mind runs I want to know the how and why’s. If if you couldn't tell that by how random this post is, I don't know what to tell you :-/ go figure.

UPDATE (9-23-2010)

I've been told that I don't put how I'm doing on facebook or twitter so someone couldn't check on me at either of those places. HAHAHAHA oh well and this should be titled I don't like one side conversations either!

C'est La Vie...

There's always a little truth behind every "just kidding".
There's always a little knowledge behind every "I don't know".
There is always a little emotion behind "I don't care".
And there is always a little pain behind every "It's okay".

-Unknown

As I read this on one of my friends Facebook status I thought wow, this is so true. I can count countless times when someone asked me was I okay and I said "yes". When clearly my face and demeanor said said other wise. Or when I had something on my mind or wanted to voice my opinion about something I shrugged my shoulders and said "I don't know". Or when someone knows that something they may have said or done to me hurt or stung a little and I said "your cool it's okay".

My question is, is this okay. Is it okay for us to ignore what we feel inside. Should we take the chance and say what's on our minds even if we know it may hurt the person at the other end? Or are we using the logic that we are protecting ourselves as well as protecting the other person. But isn't omitted the truth the same as a lie?
