Shout out to my 1st follower…ME! That’s okay though we’re making progress and as long as we’re making “progress?” Can’t complain one bit about it. The world within me is so rich and is populated with the memories of my past and recent adventures, travels, and various exploits, but, it REALLY has me longing for more at this point. The understanding that this stagnant period (see the last post) is only temporary only has me anxious–in a good way–about what’s to come.
I drove down to Lex (Lexington, Kentucky) the other day to pick up my little brother Chuck who’s a freshman at UK, we’ve been having a blast. He’s what’s making the decision between grad schools so difficult actually. The dilemma? Well, wouldn’t it be cool if we both attended the same University at the same time? It think so, I mean, that hasn’t been possible since he was in kindergarten and I was in like the 3rd grade. Drawback? I’m not really feeling UK’s program. Seems like an immense waste of two years only because it has a systematic redundancy about it, but, who knows. We’ll find out when I actually visit them and speak in person perhaps. Plus, going to UC wouldn’t be so bad as that program seemed pretty awesome from my visit and so is the campus. Additionally, Cincinnati definitely seems more exciting consistently than said Lexington. What do you guys think?
Sidebar, follow me at Ironsheek on Twitter that way you guys can hang out all the time lol. Wanna know what’s funny? UNLESS you’re reading this now? I’m still talking to myself but REMEMBER, we’re making “Progress”…. Until next time.
Hey Blog, um… World? Sphere? Oh well not important but what IS important is that I remember to click “submit when I compose a Blog! I was SO hurt when I clicked on “view blog” with great anticipation to no avail whatsoever so suppose I do this aGAIN. No biggie I have the strongest thumbs this side of the Rio Grande, yes I’m typing this from my prē which I give eight thumbs up by the way… As I digress although I was making no particular point to begin with so I guess I wasn’t digressing the least bit, although I COULD be at this current juncture.
Sparing the formalities of being a firs-time blogger let us get straight INTO it shall we? In my 22 years of life I’ve never been at such a stagnant period in life stifled by such monotony such as selling cell phones and then….. Being talked to by a salesman ABOUT the cellphones! Not the least bit fun and most certainly not the least bit interesting. This 9-5 with no true aim or purpose in your individual lifetime/bucketlist pursuits doesn’t always work for everyone now DOES it?
It’s funny, because although I loathe the aforementioned, it HAS re-awakened my creatvity and drive that mind-numbing institutions like high school do a great job of disipating. This experience has encouraged great introspect and reflection, something that people who get caught up in so-called “life” to do. To reflect is to get to know you, your talents, gifts and abilities as well as how to apply them. If you can’t do this? You’re firing a weapon with no aim, thus, wandering aimlessly… Pun INTENDED!
I do need to get to traveling and exploring like Dora again. It misses me. Big things are planned even if I don’t quite know what they are and the same goes for all you out there, just open your mind and heart in preparation for those plans to unfurl. I’ll be SURE to submit this time, oh and before I forget, you can also find me at @Ironsheek on Twitter…More later…
