Remember that song by lil John that came out around 2005-2006? All he did was yell “READ A BOOK!” Many years later as I reflect on that song those words of wisdom by lil John have inspired me to read… More.
I’ve struggled to keep a consistent schedule reading. I’ll start a book and be happily attached to it for a good month. After 30 days I grow tired and think less about the book and next thing I know I’m back to reading random bullshit online.
What I find crazy is that I can delve into these weird news stories on the internet, take some time to read a page of Lore on ESO, then scroll through countless news feeds trying to correct other people’s grammar. As technology grows and we become more reliant on Search, News Feeds, and Instagram pictures, we lose focus on what technology is really here for, to Aid us.
We have an endless supply of information geared toward us but what AI scripts and algorithms provide us with are articles about stuff we like, but not stuff we should check out… If that makes any sense.
You would think at this point in my life with all these screens in front of me and everyone else in the world, I would read more. Ya know like a book with substance or an educational magazine, yet I stay posted on Facebook and Reddit scrolling away my life as I skim through horribly worded comments and upvotes.
With that said, I’m going to subscribe to Blinkist to train myself to read more. I think my problem stems from anticipating the end of a book and I get overwhelmed and give up on even trying to finish. With Blinkist I’ll get the core facts I want and also read a bite size portion of an entire book.
How great is that?
I’m ghost for now.

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.

Hopefully by now you have heard about the 150 armed men who took over a federal building. Sadly enough the news was spread via social media and not the major news networks. Now I cannot solely rely on that because I haven’t seen the news today. Either way, the fact that this is being publicized as an event that doesn’t catches mainstream medias attention is ridiculous! Now I don’t want to go on a huge rant about this but stuff like this is what cause’s a disruption in peace that we are trying to create.
