11 Drunk Thoughts

Writing while hungover: a collection of the previous night's drunk thoughts.

11 Drunk Thoughts

I really tried to buckle down and write an article this week that was thought provoking and currently relevant to the world; I truly did. However, both a particularly tiresome work week and my building procrastination have left me in frustratingly real writer’s block scenario. I came to a Friday night with the task of creating this week’s piece. I wanted to be that person that turns down hang out sessions to bang on my craft with hardcore dedication. You know, the type of thing that intensely passionate narrators found in “video that will motivate me” YouTube searches advise. Usually a dude is yelling behind various scenes of athletes working out and telling you that all excuses are always irrelevant, and “the path to success is a lonely one”.

In the wake of my Saturday morning hangover, I am here to tell you I didn’t do any of that. I succumbed to the pressures of having fun on a Friday night and I let a night of drinking beer and smoking around good people let it happen. So, there was no research of current events in sight. However, I have an obnoxiously present train of thought that bends in weird ways during times of inebriation. Here is a list of 11 things that I thought of last night when entering that perfect drunk zone. Why 11? I was originally going to write 20, but going back to sleep is very important to me. Also, I wanted to seem like I overachieved a list of ten.

1. I don’t think Betsy Ross (or whoever actually made the U.S. flag) was all that great. The flag could be way cooler. Seriously, where were all the artists at during establishing the nations’ branding? I think the flag hype is a case of groupthink. The jig is up Betsy.

2. I wonder if my dog is sick of answering “what” he is to people. What about asking who he is? “What is your dog” is a strange question. Next time I’ll just say he is Remy and he is beautiful.

3. I want to watch Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” in its entirety right this second. (I suggest to watch a clip, and they switch it after one section) Damn it. I’ll try again in 30 minutes.

4. The Domino’s pizza guy looked sad. I know how it feels to work nights; it sucks. I wonder if he is still at work. I hope he gets home safe on his bike. It’s late and he has a bunch of cash on him. If I were a person that robbed people I would probably rob him.

5. The tapestry on my wall is so inviting and intricate, I love it. I wonder who made it. I bet their mind is crazy and they are probably good at math. Unless a computer made it, then fuck this tapestry. Wait a second, a human made that program so, alright. Wait another second, when did I get all “team human”.

6. What if I did a handstand right now while they are talking. Ready Daniele, do it. Okay, one...two...ah whatever, I can’t do a handstand; who am I kidding. I can do a kart wheel though (I shift from one chair to another). That’s good enough.

7. I look intently at everyone’s eyebrows.

8. I hope my late grandmother isn’t mad that I use the butterfly box she gave me to hide 420 things.

9. I remember a time where I saw a bird murder another bird by pecking out its brains. I wonder the motive.

10. I really get the housewife thing now, like... I just get it.

11. What if this floor just fell through? Our downstairs neighbor would freak out. What if our floor just flew up to the 3rd? Our upstairs neighbor would be even more freaked out.

There are 11 of my drunk thoughts. As I write them down, I am a little concerned about my thought process, but I am more concerned about my headache. I am going to drink all the water now. Until next week, good night.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
