The Threat

Things in chat have been pretty dead lately.  It is really sad to see the place start to crumble.  People use to flock to this place and you had to be clever and witty to stand out, now you just have to have to breathe.
Simulating conversations are few and far between, and maybe that is why I don't slip into there as often.  I am usually greeted with silence~ and who likes to talk to themselves?

Over the last few months, there has been a chatter that likes to threaten me.  He/she goes by the nickname "Murder".   This chatter's main goal is to scare me.  The person has figured out where I live, or to a 150-500 miles accuracy.

He (or she but let's assume he) thinks he is clever to name cities, streets, transportation, and landmarks around where I live to seem to know where I am.  He also like to spout headings from news stories in my area as well.

Yesterday, he told me he had hacked me and he had a friend in the MVA, so he has my license number.  I almost forgot, he has also been watching me for two weeks...

Of course, he can't tell me what kind of car I drive or what I wore or even who I was with~ but he wants me to think he has been obsessing with my every move for weeks~ or months because he has been saying my end is soon~ for awhile now.

So according to Murder, my destiny is to die soon, very soon, for what?  It seems, I have ruffled the feathers of this raven~ and I guess for something I said in a public chatroom means I must die.  I have always tried to be nice and being nice has probably sealed my fate~

I am not going to worry about how I will die...what is the point?  When it is my time, I will face it then, no need to worry now~ I will go on living without looking over my shoulder~ if it is truly my fate~ then it will be and there is nothing to do about it~

I will not walk away~ I will be strong until the end~ I will love hard and fight harder for what is right~ I will have no regrets~you will not break me with words in a place that you hide who you are~ fly away little raven~find peace in your life~

Disappointment

You know it doesn't really matter how prepared you are in life~ you are going to be disappointed, we are not immune to it.

We will find disappointment in our friends, bosses, jobs, lovers, and families.  You shouldn't take it too hard because it is just apart of life.

Since you know disappointment is inevitable, you might as well learn something from it.  Learn how to deal with it and learn how to accept it.

I am hoping I can do this.  I know it is easier to write about learning to deal with disappoint than it is to actually "deal" with it.  All you can do is try, and try you must.

We can work on not disappointing others but frankly, you can control what others think or do.  You can only control your thoughts and actions...

My Wish

Well, I was lucky enough to spend the holidays with family and friends.  It was nice to go home and see the places I have been. It was a scenic walk down memory lane.  Looking back, I can see that I have come so far...

 It is still always good to take the time to reconnect with the past.  I had left a lot of things not put up in its proper place.  Going back, allowed me the opportunity to tidy up and pack things away properly.  It wasn't easy but necessary...

Now, I can focus on what is ahead of me, moving forward with optimistic resolve.

 I wish you peace and happiness in the new year.   I wish you have 12 months of success, 52 weeks full of laughs, 365 days of good health, 8760 hours of happiness, 52600 minutes of joy and 3153600 seconds of good luck~always stay thirsty my friend!

Shall We Sing


You know it is that time again.  For those of you that haven't heard my twisted, sad rendition of a classic Christmas Carol, here it is one more time:

Deck the Wall

Deck the wall with mindless posts
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la
'Tis the reason for the drunkin' host
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

Don we now our minds in peril
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la
Tolling chat should make us sterile
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

See the hell-raising regs before us.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la
Our boo-fucking-hoos are a well-played chorus
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

Follow me in keyboarding pleasure.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la
While I tell of past chat leisure
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

Fast away the old whine passes
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la
Hail the new year, lads and lasses
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

Wall reading we enjoy, all together
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la
Heedless of our ruffed feathers
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

Happy holidays ya'll pass the eggnog!

Discontent

I was shocked when I woke up and read that Trump would be our next President... This election was difficult for me because frankly, I didn't like any of the candidates, but NOT voting was Never an option.  I had to figure out who was the "lesser of two evils" when both were truly evil.

I would like to believe that people voted for Trump because they were tired of the status quo and and wanted a change in a seemingly corrupt government.

I understand why a lot of people are discontent following the election.  It is rooted in our continued feelings of separation, isolation, limited resources, and increased entitlement but I don't think we need the help of politicians to fix this.  We simply need to wake up and to it ourselves.

What we need to realize is that everyone has more in common than we think.  We are not yet ready for equality, instead needing equity to elevate the disadvantaged so that they may equally participate. That said, we do need to focus on better jobs, better healthcare, better education, better opportunity, environmental improvements, better nutrition, etc. These needs are universal.

Instead of constantly telling people they are wrong, we need to listen and work together so we all can achieve.  Yes, the government needs to be fixed, but first we need to fix ourselves and each other.

I know, it is time for me to step off this political soap box, and start putting action to my words...

The Visit

I use to think that the people I met online were real but I have discovered that is not necessarily true.

I mean some "people" are actually just made-up characters. They are not really whom they seem to be.

It makes the idea of an online world more like an interactive novel with make believe characters and ending may never have a predictable outcome~

It seems as thought you can't apply logic to this illogical world and things are never as they seem.

It explains why the online bullies are probably the ones getting bullied in real life.  The social butterflies are probably socially awkward and the smooth talkers probably the ones that hold their tongues.

You have to remember your medium.  The internet allows you to be anything or anyone you like. Haters and judgers are out there only to make you show your true colors or to simply satisfy their own needs through your despair.

They are not your friends and could care less what happens to you.  It is just their sick game.

Like I said before, people online are never who you think they are...well most of them.  There are a small number of people who are genuine and real but they are a rare find.  I hope you find someone real and genuine online if that is what you are looking for~

Am I real?  Some would say no,  but really only you can decide that~

Whey am I here?  I find this world fascinating, like a good book.  It is like a diner at the end of the road~ no telling who will end up there with you but every time you go there you experience a new and exciting adventure~

To survive in this world you have to have a "trust no one" belief system, and for some that is not a way to live.  That is why you can't really live in an online world.  It it is just a place to visit and grab a cup of hot tea and a muffin~

The Loop


Life can keep you pretty busy.

It seems that you buckle down, put your nose to the grindstone, and work as hard as you can and then you pause, take a moment to look up-up and the world has jumped forward a few days.

You are living in an everlasting loop of mundane tasks and if you are not careful you will forget to live and just exist.

To live, you have to take those precious  moments when you are not working and do something you enjoy.

Over time, you will reverse things so that your work becomes the pauses and you start living in the loop of your life that is worth living, all of those real moments that count...

So my advice is to work hard, but play harder...we never know how much time we have to enjoy the loop my friend...
