So it’s done. Those guys at FB are smart. They designed a temptation system where a person who deactivated their account can reactivate it just by inputing their account email and password. Smart people. Smaaaaart.
This one is nice. They use other people’s photos to make you feel bad by putting “_______ will miss you” on top of your friend’s photos.
See how easy it is to come back to it all? This website surely is a place that consumes people’s time.
Not to mention all the smart people who click on links that show them some paparazzi photos of Justin Bieber or something else completely…..SMART.
My logic says that It’s too early/pointless for me to focus on relationships. I’m still pursuing a degree, I have no job, blah blah blah. My organ responsible for a rhythmic beat says otherwise (or maybe its my endocrine system that is making the statement). Either way I’ve been shot in the face with one of Cupid’s arrows and it’s stuck there. I guess this is a clear sign that I am immature and incapable of controlling my emotions from creating hopes and desires that are both distracting and disheartening (albeit it’d make me happy if the dreams/hopes were to manifest themselves in this lifetime). Just putting it out there: I have no idea how I’m going to work this out because like all socially and mentally destroyed children we tend to lock away these things deep within ourselves which ferments, over a long long time, into a sort of intoxicating trance which in turn prevents us from functioning properly. Don’t get me wrong, we can function but not that efficiently. Stupid Arik. Stupid. Stupid. STUPID.
I was just reminded not too long ago about a certain group of people I knew in high school. They were a group of asians I knew because of a sports team.
Long story short they insulted and ridiculed me about my Hispanic blood. What bothered me the most was that they were racist towards any hispanics because they thought they were superior than any other race.
What killed me the most was that they believed i had no right to be called asian, that i was a dirty mutt.
So I was researching the university that I aim to go to, I so happened to stumble upon their sports club page and…..I have fallen in love with the university <3 They do crew, fencing, swim, judo, etc. and I seriously want to do all of them but alas I am but a single measly human and my time there will be short.
So for the last few days I have gotten myself to go to the gym to do cardio and resistance training which in turn is making me feel great! Although my overall performance while running or swimming is sad (my endurance is so sad!) I am able to lift close to my previous max weights which is great!!!!!! Plus the membership is set for the next two months which is a HUGE benefit since the gym has been fitted with very good equipment.
Today I was inspired by the high school swimmers that were competing during the Finals competition for their league. Although they seem to have bad form/technique their will and spirit shone with such brightness it simply awed me. Although I have been swimming for a few days this occurrence surely has inspired me to work my a$$ off so that I can swim to fill my heart with chlorinated water.
I’m going to type another entry AFTER I eat mwahahahahaha I <3 my mom’s cooking!!!!
Do not rejoice in the fact that a man of evil was killed. Rather weep for the truth of what was and what is. It is sad to see that we continue to fight for such petty reasons yet we continue to destroy and terrorize the lives of our own brothers and sisters. Are we not united under one banner, underneath our one similarity? We. Are. Humans.
Prov. 24:17 - “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles…”
Ezek. 33:11 - “Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?”
When I read these two passages I realized how much hate I had contained within myself. It made me reflect on my past and of how I truly never forgave those who had ever wronged me. I think it is the perfect time to start over and just live life.
"I stayed alive. I kept breathing. And one day my logic was proven all wrong because the tide came in, and gave me a sail. And now, here I am. I’m back. In Memphis, talking to you. I have ice in my glass… And I’ve lost her all over again. I’m so sad that I don’t have Kelly. But I’m so grateful that she was with me on that island. And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring? "
