Bad news… apparently we are on the highway to hell!

Highway to HELL

From time to time I read the posts on social media and I am not quite sure why there is so much traffic on my way to work. Apparently I am the only person that feels the end of our country is not upon us. Look, long story short if you hate America so much by all means please move somewhere else. It will make booking hotels and getting flights much easier for me.

Now, i am not some mindless droid that does not see the negative. FAR FROM IT there are a lot of laws put in place to keep people of my ilk away from power. Ever since the election and the subsequent butt hurt from all the losing busters it has become clear that the politicians are not the problem, it is the people they represent. America the nation of whiny weak crybabies that pout their little lips and cry the moment they don’t get their every wish. I look around and see a society of nothing but weak willed, soft sad sacks. The vicious hard bodied and harder souled people that build America have fathered a nation of soft weak wills.

After the election was over I thought the maddening idiocy around me would just fade into the back ground and life would resume. WRONG! We are weeks removed and I am still hearing people harping about the election and the horror of our President. How about you show a little god damn respect, he is OUR PRESIDENT! Think it is an easy job fill out your application and let the entire world dissect your life and call you stupid for every single thing you have done. How would YOU measure up?

I got some bad news for you sunshine, every one of these politicians that you complain about and hate on are a reflection of YOU. The lumbering dinosaur that is our political system is a direct parallel of the US. So if you hate it so much get the hell out. Go explore the world and stake your claim in some other “better” country. How about you worry more about doing your best rather than cast stones. Work harder at your job, making your neighborhood a better place by volunteering and give your baseless meaningless hate a little rest. Leave the sarcasm and biting commentary to those of us who are better at it. You know, those of us that have a Blog.

Trip to the brain….

Trippin….. well not really but I am feeling under whelmed with my performance lately. I have been back in the United States for 8 months. I have gotten some things done, but not nearly enough. I got a job, new car and started working on the never ending house project bullshit but there is so much more I want to do. Problem is I come up with these ideas and then pile them on the OTHER list of great ideas I had. Which basically leads to non-action.

I need to really try to push myself harder but just end up blowing it. Part of the problem is organization. Some things are quick and easy ideas or projects and others are much more involved and require finding the right people. I have to really learn to sit down and figure out how much energy and time the things that are important to me require and allot for them. Problem is I get into too much “figurin’ and not enough DOING”. I have never been able to maintain To Do lists. That might be the key, or maybe establishing what is important and then killing the other stuff. I don’t know… All I know is I still have a lot of dreams and aspirations. This star has not burned out yet but sure as hell better start to burn some fuel and light up the sky. Cause sitting on the couch watching my ass grow isn’t helping.

I’ve had time to reflect

Reflections… i was going to kill this blog, but I think I will just keep on keepin’ on as they used to say way back when. As I slide back into my every day life I think back to my time abroad. It was hard, it was lonely but it was awesome. I met new people, experienced crazy CRAZY things and grew as a person. Sometimes I think of some wacky memory of Korea and I smile. The great groups I saw there, the interesting food I tried. When a’s song plays in my car I sometimes have a tear. I was able to see them in Tokyo and they are my favorite band, I think back to that concert with Kiddo and wish it would have never ended. Tokyo kicks serious ass. I enjoy my life back home, but I do miss the constant challenge. I like my job and the closeness of family and friends but I do find myself slipping back into that world away from my world from time to time. Like a tattoo it is part of me (by the way I don’t have any tattoos but do kinda wish I would have picked one up in Korea or Japan)

I will say this to all my friends and those reading this for the first time as they embark on their own journey. Cast fear aside, grab your chances and go like hell. You will be old and grey before you know it…. you have time to rest when you are dead. Gather no moss and enjoy your every moment young travelers. The world is a big crazy beautiful place.
