For Your Viewing Pleasure

Posted in Everything Under the Sun with tags , , , , on December 29, 2014 by SereneDelusions

I often type out quick ideas in my phone so that I don’t lose them.   I used to do this more in notebooks but it seems that I have a phone with me more than paper and pen.  Hmph.  That’s a nice resolution tucked in there.

Anyway, this could become a part of a series of posts, elegantly (aptly?) titled: Crap I Found On My Phone.

I think I’m funny and it’s okay if you don’t share that sentiment because… This is my blog and I don’t particularly care if you agree.  Laugh at me, dammit!

Crap I Found On My Phone, chapter one, an epic poem:

Lost little bits of fantasy
Spread out like cards in front of me
When to bluff and when to fold…
I suck at poker.

Have a wonderful week, folks!

What is She talking about?

I’m finally feeling the writing bug again.   It’s been a long time, far too long.   I’ve spent too much time trying to figure out what to do with the blog.   How should I organize it?   What should I post where?  Is that the font I want?   Are these colors working?   Should my content have a different flow?   Do I want this part to be public?  

It’s no wonder how I get so overwhelmed when I put so much pressure on myself.   So what if sometimes this will read like a whiney, ‘dear diary’ monologue? There’s a freedom to public journaling that, while terrifying at times, is more often a welcome release.  I need to let things go and start fresh with this thing.   Or something  like that.

I’m too anxious.   I’m highly emotional.   I’m overly practical.   I beat myself up too often about my all too human faults.

I’m also witty and sarcastic.    I can make most people laugh with my demeanor.   I smile easily.  I’m a curious, knowledge hungry, daydreamer.  I’m all too human and that’s not all too bad.

There’s a point in here somewhere.  I can’t promise you that I’m going to be consistent or reliable.  I need these pages though.   For some reason I keep coming back here because it feels like the right outlet.  

I’ll be back soon.   Hopefully I’ll have some daydreams to share.

Much love.

                                      

The More You Know

Posted in Everything Under the Sun with tags , , , on February 25, 2014 by SereneDelusions

Hello!  I’m going to do a random post for you folks because my brain has been afire lately with things I’m still trying to sort out into coherent writing.

I originally found this idea on The Write Transition and she found it on benzeknees .  Check both of those blogs out and give them some love.  That’s an order.

I thought this was a fun idea and have been having so many writing ideas lately (incomplete pieces of ideas, don’t get too excited for me) that I can’t seem to finish one single thing.  I’ll get there though and at least I’m writing.  You can’t force being awesome, it just comes naturally.  (I swear, I really am modest, haha.)

So, without further adieu, I’ll take this lighter fare post and run with it.  Maybe you’ll find we have some things in common or maybe you’ll finally go running in the other direction like I’ve always suspected you might.  (I’m looking at all you non-communicative followers, haha.)  It’s a risk I’m willing to take!

Five Things I’m Passionate About

-Human rights

-The pursuit of knowledge

-Reading & Writing!  They go hand in hand, folks. “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” –Stephen King (I’m fairly certain he knows what he’s talking about.)

-Science (Both fiction and real!) Want to watch Star Trek and contemplate an alternate universe?

-Anthropology and human history

Five Things I Would Like To Do Before I Die

-Write a novel or five

-Travel to Europe & Asia, maybe live in Europe for a time  (Let’s take some historical tours!)

-Live to see space exploration become a primary, cooperative, continuously funded avenue for humans.  Make it a priority!

-Find a Time Lord, travel with him/her, gloat to all my friends.

-Fall in love over and over again with life.  Never stop appreciating the whole damn thing.

Five Things I Say A Lot

-Fuckity fuck and every variation I can muster

-Awesome

-I love Deep Space Nine

-I wish… or I hope… or I really love…

-Indeed

5 Books or Magazines I Have Read Lately

It’s been awhile since I actually finished a book, I read a lot but I keep starting new things, so I’ll shoot yah a few of my current reads and maybe a blog or two that I enjoy:

-The Stand by Stephen King (Disclaimer, do not read this book when you have a severe cold.  It will freak you out and possibly give you nightmares helped along by medication.  Also, don’t read it before bed every night.  You know what, just don’t read Stephen King before bed at all.)

-Cosmos by Carl Sagan

-Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson

Matt’s blog (This is honestly my new favorite blog and I think you should definitely check it out.)

-Zodiac Unmasked: The Identity of America’s Most Elusive Serial Killer Revealed by Robert Graysmith

Five Favorite Movies

My choices are telling of how refined I am, prepare to be amazed.  Thank goodness this didn’t ask top five favorites because that would be impossible.  Here are some I revisit and/or reference frequently.

-The 5th Element

-Indiana Jones…really any of the original three, I can never pick a favorite

-Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

-When Harry Met Sally

-Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King

__________________________________________

I can’t believe how long it took me to complete this little thing.  What do you think?  Was it a waste of time?  Do you plan on doing it?  Do any of my answers surprise you?  Am I asking you too many questions?

Still Alive!

It has been a bit since I last posted.  I have missed you WordPress!  So, how have you been?  No really, I’m asking you.  I would like to get to know my followers.  Feel free to speak up at any time!

I have been immersed and sorting my life out lately.  I made some lofty goals and have been busy both implementing and planning them.  Let’s just say there are some huge changes to come for me soon.  I will update you as I can.

In the meantime I wanted to post a quick blurb and let you know that I am indeed alive and kicking.  Regular posting shall resume momentarily.
