Quote of the Week


The culture doesn’t encourage you to think about such things until you’re about to die. We’re so wrapped up with egoistical things, career, family, having enough money, meeting the mortgage, getting a new car, fixing the radiator when it breaks. We’re involved in trillions of little acts just to keep going. So we don’t get into the habit of standing back and looking at our lives and saying, Is this all? Is this all I want? Is something missing?-Morrie Schwartzt


Job Depression


When you first start working at a place you really wanted to, you do your best, go above and beyond and take pride in your work. But then things get monotonous, leadership fails you, and you find that your co-workers have nothing to do but talk bad about each other.

You then think of your first day and what lead to this very moment. Then you stop giving your all, stop going above and beyond and you stop taking pride in your work. You imagine scenarios in your head about the moment when you tell your boss you’re resigning with a big smile on your face; but soon this smile will fade away as you realize you don’t have an alternative job as it is hard to find a new job in a bad economy. The picture of your family at your desk reminds you of obligations, mouths to feed, and taxes to pay, so you decide to swallow your pride and continue doing this shitty job by putting a fake smile every morning and pretending you will be okay.



You Know It’s Monday


You know it’s Monday when you wake up your spirit animal is a tortoise that’s stuck on its back. There are grunts involved, and some hobbling.


You know it’s Monday when you are in killing spree mood after receiving a lion’s share of “Good Morning”

You know it’s Monday when nothing quite goes right: you’re late despite waking up at 5:30 am, you put salt instead of sugar in your coffee cup then you spill your coffee on your new outfit,  your socks don’t’ match, you caused paper jam in the printer, etc and then you start to sob with pain

shoot me

You know it’s Monday when you start to feel like a third grade student looking forward for lunch break

You know it’s Monday when you plan to stare at the ceiling and slowly drift into madness and start doubting your mental health


You know it’s Monday when your faith in God is restored again “Lord give me strength”


You know it’s Monday when you prefer to go to the dentist instead going to work/school


You know it’s Monday when you all you do is sitting on your chair quietly plotting your escape




What is the fascination with celebrities?  What is the obsession?  Other than making more money than they should, I see no reason why we should even care what celebrities do.  In fact, that is the main focus point of this blog.

Day after day, and hour after hour, we are force fed the insignificant facts and rumors about celebrities.  Who they are dating, who they are not dating.  I find no reason why I should even care if some has been celebrity is now married to some slacker loser who can’t even get a job. Where are the pictures of the homeless, the hungry family, and the mother selling her soul for food for her kids?


But they are famous you say.  Who the hell cares?  If an actor or actress makes a good movie, then good for them.  They are just regurgitating lines written by someone else, under the direction of someone else.  If a singer makes a hit song, chances are someone else wrote it.  If the singer did write the song, then everyone has to analyze it and imprint their own views as to why the song was written when chances are we may never know.

Celebrities are OVER paid.  Military soldiers who live and die for us everyday get paid far less then they deserve.  Police Officers and Fireman are also underpaid for what they do.  Yet, we sit idly by while a Celebrity can make millions for under one year of work.  I understand that Celebrity Athletes can have careers that last for less than ten years and that they need to make their money quick or they might not make it at all, however, millions a year.

We have been told time after time that we have to pay so much for DVD’s and CD’s because everyone involved in making the movie or song has to be paid.  I may not be the most intelligent person in the world, but what would happen if instead of paying the lead actor, actress, artist or athlete millions upon millions for one project, you cut their pay to under one million.  Then the extra money could be spread out to the other people involved in the project.  The savings could be passed onto the consumer who may then buy more quantities of various products.

I am not suggesting a Communist state where everyone gets paid equally I only suggest that people get paid what they are actually worth.  NO person is worth more than a million or more a year.  Get real.  If the actor is good, hire him again, if not hire someone else.  There are thousands of out of work actors and actresses that would love to have a chance to make it big.  Celebrities are people, nothing more and nothing less.
