Writer's Block: Words to Live By

What is your personal motto or favorite quotation?



Knowledge is Power

This is something that has always struck a cord with me. It's the reason i am such an avid bibliophile and why I love learning. I have also come to realize that while Knowledge is power, the KIND of knowledge you have is what gives you the power. Just because you have memorized all the rules of a game doesn't really give you much power unless you know how to use them in that one game... Yet a college degree will open soo many more doors than not having one will.

and i just realized i am rambling, and tired.. NIGHT

I am Sick of the Bail-outs snd Stimulus

Here is why i am sick of both... They wont help me. Simple as that. I don't own a house, I have Student loans that are in default and so i wont get any of the tax credits. Whats more, is that student loans are "guaranteed" so I can't file for bankruptcy and start fresh with a clean slate.

From what I understand everything that is going being worked on by our Government from Bush on through to Obama is geared to help the established, the Large Business owners, and the Home owners. There are sooo many more people out there who are just employees and they rent. Who is helping them? Who is helping people get out of dept? Who is helping people find jobs that allow them to help them selves?

Answer me this. Who is helping the common person?

Writer's Block: Adult Onset

Putting legal definitions aside, at what age do you think someone can really be considered an adult?


For me, I feel that our ancestors had it right. A bit after puberty i would say between 13 to 16 would be appropriate for MOST.. but not all.. There are many who should not be considered an adult at the age of 30.. But for the most part i think a younger age would be more appropriate.

What's more, i feel that the age for drinking should be the same age that you come of age, like Smoking and joining the military. Not that i condone smoking, far from it, but If someone is considered of age, you should have full rights with the full responsibility of coming of age.

I also feel that we as a society should have a coming of age ritual that is more profound than graduating.. something that will not only test your adulthood but also make you feel proud of your accomplishment. And if you past this "test" is when you should be labeled as an adult.

Writer's Block: Jackpot

If you won the lottery, what would you do with your newfound riches?


Two answers..

First, i would buy another scratch off. :)

But if it was a HUGE amount, well.. I would hire an accountant, and a Lawyer, then go about paying off my dept.

After that, i would look into secure investments to grow the money, Start my own businesses, and have my dream home built using Monolithic dome technology.

Fairly boring i guess.

Still looking....

Well.. When i lost my job in October, i never thought i would still be looking for a replacement in February! What's more, i am still with out regular access to a computer.

with all that being said, i did want people to know i am still alive just... trying to dig my self out of this pit i find my self in.

In Troth

Ray

Well this Sucks!

So i was driving to LARP and i stopped at a yellow light and got Rear-ended. So now i have to wait to hear back from both the car dealership and my Insurance Agent. Thankfully i am not at fault. Also, i am for the most part ok a little sore... i will see how i feel tomorrow.

So.. don't worry, i am ok... it's just a small annoyance.

Well.. it's official, i was "Let Go" yesterday from Diamonds and Designs by None Other Goldsmiths, So it's now time for me to start looking for a new job full time. Wish me luck everyone!
