The week starts. The morning starts. I wake up, get dressed, make my way out the door to the place that allows me to live. The place that allows me to manifest this lifestyle. The place that takes away the very energy I need to live, while giving me the means to live. Putting me in the company of, what undoubtedly seems to be, the very future ahead of me. Breakfast time comes and goes. Lunchtime comes and goes. It approaches the rush hour. My labor is no longer required. I am released from the slavery born of my own volition.
Live a day in my life.
There will always be those questions that throw me off guard. I think that’s just the dynamic of siblings. The younger ones seem to always want to keep the older ones on their toes. Especially when the older one is 7 years older and is basically an adult now who thinks he is ready for anything that they can dish out. But once in a while, there is always that question. And maybe that question can be caught in the older sibling’s defense in time and brushed off.

“What would you do if I found out I was gay?”

I know saying that just now was a pretty major jinx, but still saying it.
Life is good.
I don’t know how long it’ll last, but it is good.
…..I love how my first post back is a damn rant. Please still love me after this one :)…..
There’s the age old saying: “Respect your elders because they have wisdom you can learn from.” That is something our parents have drilled into us since we began to consciously retain information. While I can appreciate the meaning behind this, it’s not entirely accurate. Actually, I straight up call bullshit. Just because you are older than me, doesn’t make you wiser and therefore demanding of my respect. It doesn’t mean you possess some sage advice I can learn that will help me along my way.
Your age alone will not coerce any additional respect from me, but I will congratulate you making it as far as you did. Continue Reading
I make a statement about my life. I have absolutely no regrets about anything. Not one single thing. Everything bad that has happened in my life, everything bad that I have done, and everything bad that will happen has caused no feelings of the need for repentence in my soul.
Maybe my view of life is too skewed, but I think that’s valid for me. Continue Reading
Pessimist or optimist? Realist? Cynic? Jaded? Innocent? There exist an infinite amount of lenses and we each have our own that we’ve decided to wear. They make up our viewpoints, our perspectives. Those experiences that shaped us into who we are decided how we will tackle every decision, every event, or going about every day. See the positive or see the negative.
