I'm finding myself currently at a crossroads. Many life changing
events have happened over the past few months which have caused me
to think about a lot of things. I'm not quite ready to share all of
them yet. I'm still finalizing some of the ideas and such.
One of those is the ability to let go, to go with the flow. I am by
no means an expert at it, but I have made serious progress very
recently and it's paid off fairly nicely.
Another of those things is the need for change. Not only in the US,
but the world alike. This one has been solidifying for the past few
years or so. It's one of the reasons that I went back to school and
pursued double majors in sociology
because I feel that change has to happen at the social level and in
order to do that, I have to understand society. Spanish
purely because it's
something I enjoy. I'd like to learn some more languages at some
point as well.
Aside from that I'm in the process of seeking a new job. Preferably
something doesn't exploit other people. I do understand how the
game is played though and I realize that I may have to play it in
order to get ahead of it and change the rules.
I've also been re-establishing myself as a halfway decent cook. So
if you have any recipes you want to share, send them my way.
I've been following the Occupy movement. Interesting times we're
in. I'm amazed at the fact, but not surprised that the main stream
media wasn't really covering it. I just hope more people open their
eyes and do something that is becoming more and more unpopular,
think for themselves and not just believe what the media tells you.
Recently MSM has dropped the ball big time, from array of false
reports with the whole Boston Marathon incident to the recent
"breaking news" on this Aaron Hernandez story.
A trend I've been noticing lately on here has been a contradiction
in "looking fors" I see a lot of people who have selected that they
are looking for someone who must be single, while at the same time
selecting that they are looking for "new friends" or "long distance
pen pals" or "activity partners". I noticed this one day and said
to myself, "well shit, non of those should really need a
pre-requisite on status. Now I can see where wanting the person to
be single kind of matters for those who have the dating options or
even the casual sex option selected. Speaking personally though,
whether I'm single or not doesn't change the fact that if we click,
I'm gonna be the best damn friend I can be. Maybe OKCupid should
revamp this section somehow. I have some ideas, but they have
people that get paid to do that sort of thing.
