    Comfort Zone

    In life we tend to establish our comfort zones and before we know it, we are content living withing those boundaries. There are times when you stop living life and retrieve to an "automatic pilot" mode, day in and day out. You are "content" because there is...

    Something About That

    Something about the absurd and abstract is interesting. Although I might not find wisdom in it, I believe everything has wisdom; it just depends on how you look at it, how you see it. Since everyone is going to see something different than you, everyone can take away...

    Searching For Truth

    A lot of people go searching for "Truth." But they can't be searching too hard, because very few of them ever think to look under my bed.

    What's In a Name?

    I often wonder what’s in a name. Does a name really represent the person? I don’t think so, otherwise we could clone humans simply by naming our kids all John Smith. And, if our names really summed us up and identified us with all our traits and characteristics...

    My Destiny Weighs Sixteen Pounds

    I have decided to take destiny in my own hands tonight. That's right, tonight I'm going bowling. I guess that means my destiny is a bowling ball. And as far as I can tell, there are only three holes in that theory. But there is nothing wrong with a sixteen pound theory. But I'll...

    A Professional Non-thinker

    I think it would be rewarding to be a professional non-thinker, because I’m always trying to do the exact opposite of work. So I might as well spend eight hours a day deep in thought. Plus, I think it would be marvelous to hear my boss scream, “What are you doing...

    Scrambled Eggs

    I’m glad scrambled eggs don’t have lips, because when I’m grinning over a hearty breakfast, it would really freak me out to see my breakfast grinning back. I’ve eaten a man for less than that.

    Finding Myself

    I have spent the first 26 years of my life trying to find myself, and it turns out that all this time I have been in the one place I never thought to look--my closet. And no, I won’t come out of the closet, because not only am I not gay, but I have nothing to wear.

    Rasputin Or Sartre?

    I see someone clicked Rasputin on one of my polls asking who had the wisest and most mesmerizing eyes. And while I appreciate Rasputin historically, and believe he was the closest thing to a prophet we've had in recent memory, his eyes don't stack up to Sartre's, in my opinion...

    In poverty and other misfortunes of life,

    true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds. Aristotle

    Not Sure Why

    Learning From Music

    My top rated Music playlist, containing hundreds of songs, is always on random. While thinking, it always feels like the songs that are chosen are relevent to my thoughts, and usually provides insight to any problems i am thinking about. It never seizes to amaze me.

    Toilet Paper

    If my name were Toilet Paper, I don’t think I’d want many people using my name. But I would introduce myself in this way: Hi, my name is Toilet Paper, and you know how I roll. I’m over the top, baby.

    Conversations

    I consider conversations with people to be mind exercises. But I don't want to pull a muscle, so I stretch a lot. That's why I'm constantly either rolling my eyes or yawning.

    The Nature of Wisdom Is Nature

    The nature of wisdom is nature. When you lift a rock hoping to uncover wisdom, you become the rock and uncover the wisdom found within yourself. There’s nothing to be found in the world that is not already hidden deep within yourself.

    Crying Trees

    I’ve never seen a tree cry, but if I were to see one, I’m not sure I’d offer it a tissue, for fear that it would just make it cry harder.

    Answers Are Everywhere.

    I have a strong believe now more than ever that answers are everywhere. They exist in everything. In anime, in songs, in television, in chatting, in video games...In basically everything. People might find it absurd, but to me, it isn't so.
