Today, some of us decided to bear the 8*F winter in Marietta Ohio to go see some ice and snow.
I notice those who have been following me for a while and current followers, you may not know me. You’ve seen my journey’s, some up and downs and etc without knowing my looks or know me personally. For those who do actually know me in person, I never do mention this rarely at all.
Where do I begin?
Ever since I was a somewhat youngish kid, I always had a feeling like i was normal with a hence of “off-ness” which at the time, I didn’t know what the off-ness was exactly. Until, people started telling oh….you look like [name] from [location] (Doppelgängers). The locations can be localized, back where I grew up or even internationally. For the longest time, I never thought anything of it.
As years past, the more and more of Doppelgängers or thought or dreamt they saw me somewhere doing something at some point in time. Even some elders saying it to back before I were even born. You might think this is odd or extremely odd and probably some other things as well. Don’t worry, I thought of the exact same thing. I lost track of this at around 10-12 times. I typically brush it off my shoulders.
I’ll tell you about one of the recent situations that happened about a year ago when I was working at a fast-food restaurant. During one of the shifts, it was between the rush hours and I decided to grab a drink while I can. While I was filling up my cup, I noticed out of my peripherals, a table of 4 was giving me quite an odd/puzzling look. Once the cup got filled, I looked at the corners of my eyes towards the table to make sure I didn’t go crazy and turns out I was right. So, I turned their way and asked to see if there was something they needed and being professional about it. They said they didn’t need anything and asked to see what my name was and area I lived because that day I just happen to forget my name tag and I don’t go by full name (too popular and seems to fit me better). So, I told them my name and area I lived. Which it made them seem more puzzled. They realized I lived in a different state but worked in their state. We both apologized and what not and went on with the time. So, I drank my drink and went back to the kitchen. I could tell that they were puzzled still because I happened to peer through the window into the lobby. Oh, life’s a mystery ain’t it?
I also did see in media outlets that there was a man depicted in people’s dreams on multiple occasions. You can read about that mystery man here. Could this be happening to me? I have always wondered this? If you want me to upload a picture to this blog, let me know in the comments below.
Have you ever wondered what an original thought actually is?
At this day of age, it seems as though a lot of the things that we say have to say or do is related to some sort of past or current popular culture. Popular culture is things that we all can relate to like popular phrases, proverbs, movies, tv shows, books, news, journals, songs, podcasts, radio, and other outlets.
It may be hard to come up with something without the referencing something from popular culture. But, the challenge is how well to challenge your thought process to think how original you original process is.
There is a game out there that my friends and I played during some free time between classes at college. We would have a conversation even though that some of it would be a random sketch that we would have to come up with something quite hilarious.
- gather around a few people, family, friends, classmates, or acquaintances.
- come with a topic or an improvised conversation
- try to see how long you can last in the conversation without referencing anything from popular phrases, proverbs, movies, tv shows, books, journals, news, songs, podcasts, radio, and other outlets.
- first person to reference something from any outlet listed in the bullet above will have to back out of the conversation until the last person stands
- last person standing has the most original thoughts
- after the round you may start over again.
Some of you remember one of the blogs posted not too long ago explaining why we're only human and all lives matter. This is similar and if listened to we can all live in a better society. We can all live to dream that this will come true. So, beyond this paragraph you can decide if you want to read further.
When looking at multiple news outlets, there are those standing up for equality for rights and fair treatment. There are still a lot of maltreatments and corruption going on out there in the world. But, how far is enough or too much? Well, that's a million dollar question, we may never actually know.
We should spread care, love and kindness to all. We should not hate, corrupt, and evil from the world. We're all human, there's no sub-humans. Yes, we're all different colors, have different religions, culture, sexual orientations, political ideas, and etc but that doesn't make us (humans) any less than one another. History happened so we would not hope to be repeated in future history.
Would there ever be a time when there is going to be a time of peace and no violence?
I ask you for simple thing.
Will you love the people around you? Will you help stop the stigmas and violence going on in the world? Can you help the world become equal for all those who reside in the world?
Remember to love one another and be kind to your neighbor.
High functioning anxiety is when you’re able to do things like a normal person except they express things a tad bit differently. Like being anal about things, insomniac, you’re sick about things, being busy can’t always be that much fun, you can’t reveal yourself exactly, NO doesn’t always exist, and everything seems like it’s all a trick.
But, what if it can be fixed? You can put back together, don’t stigmatize them for their situation, choice or cause of being that way, and to be don’t be rude, unkind, brush-off, don’t say something like “perk up butter cup things will get better soon” cause it will most likely make things 10x worse, help them recognize what types of problems that could factor into their situation, work on the problems as a team, don’t shove them into back the darkness that they were once in, and help them remind them of how they was once was and teach them how to recreate those feelings and memories of all the good times.
Yes, it’s a challenge to overcome. But how far are you willing to fix the problem or if you are going to be that somebody to fix that person.
