Reading is Power, Power is Control

Reading daily has helped me a lot lately. My vocabulary has slightly grown and I can pay more attention when I am reading articles online or in the other books I am reading at the same time. I’ve grown to enjoy opening a book and learning what the author has to offer. Its an incredible feeling and I always ask myself why I haven’t stuck with reading in my earlier years of life. I guess you can say I was stuck on doing other “stuff” but that shouldn’t have been the case when it came to pulling a book off the shelf and actually reading it.

Since high school I’ve only really finished one book and it was this book I started reading in middle school and then stopped. That terrible right? The book was the second installment from the Maximum Ride Series and I believe there is another third book but my learning focus has shifted onto other things. Right now I’m reading the 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene which is an incredible book to read if you are interested in going into business. Its full of rich history and a lot of knowledge jam packed within.

In addition to reading Robert Greene’s book, I’m also reading a book called “Hold Me Closer,” or at least that’s what I think its called. Its an ebook that I found while searching for books in the Google Play Books store. So far I’m lost in what’s going on. We went from a kid named Sam working at some fast food joint, to a Werewolf locked inside of a cage doped up on aconitine.

I’m hoping to have 48 Laws finished by the end of this month or the middle of March so I can move on to The Prince by Machiavelli. Again, I started reading that book over the summer of 2015 and didn’t finish it, but this time I will and many other books that I shall lay my hands on.

Tumblr Photo Commentary

Here’s an excerpt from my tumblr

Alright so if you haven’t noticed I have been going on random tangents on all the photos I have been sharing. It’s something new I want to try since people just share photos with these itty bitty little captions on them saying this and that. Well you know what? I’m going to pioneer a new tumblr where we fucking write our hearts out becasue writing it’s a gift and we should use it until our fingers are tired and our coffee gets cold. People just need to learn how to have a little fun, there’s always sun outside but when the sun goes down what else is there to do when the temperature is below zero? Do you see where I’m going with this? Another tangent about nothing but we all strive to be something. haha.

If I am not on here making blog post I am more than likely sitting on tumblr rambling about a photo. it gets boring after a while so I usually come back here where I know intellectual post are applauded.

Alphabet is the most valuable company in the world

For all of you Apple fanboys out there, get ready to buckle your seatbelts because the rocky slide for Apple’s decline may be starting. During Google’s earning call, the company has surpassed Apple as the most valuable company in the world. Alphabet, as the company has renamed itself, brought in 21.3 Billion in revenue. Analyst were expecting Alphabet to bring in $8.09 per share but the search giant eradicated those speculations making them the most valuable company in the world.

Apple’s decline in stock didn’t happen overnight, their numbers have been falling for quite a while. Alphabet on the other hand has slowly climbed to its peak. Many of us probably would have never guessed this day would happen but it was coming either way. Apple has a few tricks up its sleeve for the coming years, hopefully we’ll see hardware from the company that will keep its heart pumping. In the meantime Google (Alphabet) who is a software company with a little bit of hardware thrown in is still vulnerable to the foreign rate exchange and the global economy.

I Read My Fathers Mind

I’m pretty sure my dad and I can read minds. While I was warming up some noodles and fixing myself a cup of coffee, I told myself, “My dad would be happy to know the trash is taken out.” I tried throwing away a dirty paper towel earlier and saw that the damn thing was over flowing, so I to tried and push the crap down. After noticing that it didn’t work, nor will it ever, I made the decision to just be the good kid in this household and talk out the trash.

In the process of pouring two packets of low calorie sweetener in my cup, my dad called. I didn’t notice that he called until I looked down at my pebble to check the time and saw there was a recent missed call. I called the old man back who asked readily if I took the trash out. With excitement and blurted out yes, managing to drop my spoon on top of the microwave. I then was asked about the air filter which I wasn’t even thinking about -I gotta change that tomorrow- but yeah, minder readers.

We’re Adults Longer Than We Are Kids

calibermag

I know I should probably be studying for this quiz so I don’t fail it like I did my last one, but I have to clear my mind of these thoughts real fast so I can focus my attention on Inequalities.

As usually, after work this morning I went over to my buddy Daimont’s where we had a conversation of higher thoughts. A thought that I was thinking about a few days ago popped up and it had to deal with adulthood.

Once you hit 21 you are a full on adult. You can practically do ANYTHING. We can totally scratch the age 18 off the list becasue we all know that you got to be 21 to walk up into the club. As an adult though we take on more responsibility – unless you live at home like I do – and that can take up a lot of precious time. We all have our own interest in life and trying to balance that along with a job and for the most part school, it gets tiring.

Like I was telling Daimont, I wish that I could go back and tell my younger self to enjoy the life of being a kid. I feel like as we grow up we want to take more responsibility and be an adult, but we forget that we are adults LONGER than we are as a kid. Think about it, as a kid all you had to do was pretty much tell you parents what your needs were. If you were hungry they fed you, if you fell and hurt yourself they bandaged you up. Our parents have done everything for us from putting a roof over our head and putting food on the table.

As an adult, all that responsibility that your parents had raising you now falls into your hands. All in all, being an adult is an extremely hard job… if you make it out to be that way. As the comedian Tyler Craig would say, “the moral of this story is,” Enjoy being a kid. If you’re grown and already got kids, let them live life to the fullest. If you don’t have any kids, smile when you see them to let them know that not everyone is bad.

Katt Williams is Coming to LOUISVILLE?!

Katt Williams

Okay so apparently I already knew this becasue when I went to the page to say I’m going it already said that I was interested. So I’m guessing the time between then and now I have slautered those brain cells with a LOT of THC. But hey! This is exciting, Katt Williams is coming to Louisville! Its crazy because just last year I was listening to his comedy specials on spotify and now I get a chance to see him live!

I’m way to stoked about this. Katt Williams in my richard Pryor of Modern Day comedy. This man gets on stage and says whatever the fuck he feels like and the entire show is great! Katt inspired me to simply not give a fuck and to give these people a show. Not everybody can just get in front of a large crowd of people and tell jokes. Thats a serious talent right there that only few have.

These tickets go on sale tomorrow so best believe that I’m going to be on that!

iRhaveEnoAtitleLforIthisTpostY.

I would first off like to let everyone know that today will be a good day so don’t worry about the rain!

Now, lets take you guys on a journey into my mind this morning. Yes I fly a kite way out there and I thought a shower would kill it but I guess not. Anyways; I just noticed that I use that word a lot when I make blogpost. I really need to stop that.

Theres more to life than what we see correct? If you agree upon that staement then proceed forward with caution becasue this is about to be a scary ride. Now if you are at your computer right now I want you to stop completely what you are doing. Sit there still, breathing very slowly. While doing this, begin to survey the area around you and feel the presence of everything that is exsistance!

Did you feel it?

What I was trying to make you do is try and experience realtiy. Now what I mean by that is that I am trying to allow you to realize reality. According to the Oxford Dictionary, Reality means: The quality of being real, something real and not imaginary, and life and the world as the really are. Another way you can explain this is the existance of everything conceputal and nonconceptual.

When I came across thsi information, I took a minute to realize everything around me the existance of it. With our everyday lives taken up buy working a job or going to school, we never really have the time to even think about something like that.

If all of this is confusing to you than I apologize, this nothing more than of me just ranting about insidious thoughts that float around my brain. Or maybe we can look at this as some type of … yeah I don’t know. Just try not to take me too seriously becasue that never works in life.
