Is an unpredictable, winding road of surprises.


When you wake up in the morning you have no idea what you might face in the day. Everyday is a winding road.

Your day may start out by you hearing the alarm, letting out a huge sigh, not wanting to move, shutting off the alarm, hitting the snooze button 27 times and then finally dragging your ass out of bed. Your day may not start out like that. It may start out with you reaching across to wherever your alarm, cell phone, or whatever method you use to wake you up is and falling out of bed. You may wind up with a broken arm, a broken leg, or for all purposes, you may break your ass when you hit the floor.

Everyday is a winding road.

No one has any idea how their day is going to start. It may start at 2 in the morning with the house on fire. It may start at 4 in the morning with your cat or dog dying. It may start with a huge domestic abuse fight next door at your trashy neighbor's house. It may even start with you having to get up in the middle of the night to go pee and not being able to get your ass back to sleep. You have no idea what may happen to start the day.

Your day may start simple, it may start hard, it may start easy, or you may be dead and it may not start at all. It's just a fact of truth. You don't know what to expect. When you go to bed at night on a Monday or a Saturday, you may not ever wake up. So make the last day you're alive the best you can make it. Because you may not see another one.

Everyday is a winding road.

When you do wake up (considering you actually do) and finally drag your ass out of bed, your morning may start with feeding the pets (as mine does), going to the bathroom (do that too) and then an assorted number of things. A shower, a bowl or 12 of cereal, maybe some Pop Tarts, or even a beer. Hell, it's hard to know who starts their day in what manner. But regardless, once your day starts, it's off and running. And your day may be a short one, a long one, or a day that feels like it's taken a week to get through.

When you finish whatever it is that you do to start off your day (some things can't be printed - that's always a possibility that people start their day out that way too), you finally get off and running. Whether it be to work, to the gym, to a boyfriend or girlfriend's house, someone you know and like (or someone you don't like) or dealing with whatever it is you deal with, you have to face the day. Unless you choose not to. And keep your lazy ass in bed to ignore the world around you.

But let's figure you actually get out of your house to face the day. You battle the alcoholism that you struggle with, the drug abuse you fight, or even arguing with your dog because he pooped on your floor last night and you know you're going to be gone for 12 hours and you don't want him to do it again- you're off and running.

If you go to work and do what you do, chances are you are one of many that hate your job. Chances are, you probably can't stand most of your coworkers either. And at times, just like me, you want to throat punch someone at least once if not three times. When someone says, "I'm having a shitty day" and someone else tries to tell them to "just get over it", you want to start your day by punching them in the (insert anatomy part here), watch them grunt, groan and gasp, and say, "hey, get over it" and move on while you're giggling and walking into another room.

Your day may start out in such a simple manner as dragging yourself out of the house, getting in the car and driving to the bar. We all have our crosses to bear. Yours may be something as simple as getting online on your computer because you work at home. Sitting there in your pajamas, watching something on the screen, listening to music or maybe listening to your neighbors having sex. Hell, we all have our crosses to bear.

When your day finally gets going and you get motivated to do whatever it is you have to do during that day, you may stop at a doughnut shop, Starbucks or Bigby or whatever else you do in order to keep it going. Maybe you're like me and you calculate just enough time to get up, pack a lunch, get things around and head off to work at 90 miles an hour so you're not late. Whatever the case may be, every day is a winding road.

There is no prediction as to what may happen. You may hit a squirrel on the way to work. You may have three deer jump out at you on the expressway where you'd least expect something ass crazy like that to happen, or you may have to swerve to avoid a mail truck doing 80 on the expressway, shaking all over the road and acting like a NASCAR driver drafting behind someone trying to win a race while turning left for the last six hours of their life.

Whatever the case may be, it is never predictable what you may face. You may start the day with a huge zit on your face. Right in the middle of your face, you know you can't walk around with something that ugly sticking out so you pick it and find yourself bleeding all over the place. You contemplate calling 911 because you think you're dying. But then reality hits, you stick a couple of toilet paper squares on your face, maybe a band aid, and you head off to work hoping half of society is blind and doesn't see the shit plastered to your face.

When you finally make it wherever you are heading, you get through the day. Whether at work, an AA meeting, or you have to go feed the animals at the zoo with the kids from school, somehow you miraculously make it. The day at work or wherever you are is finally over and you head home. Except you can't make it. The piece of shit car you're driving is broken down. It won't turn over. It won't do anything. All you want to do is push it in the middle of the parking lot and home it gets run over by a dump truck.

So you call an UBER. You call a cab. You call a friend. You walk the 27 miles home that you have to. Or maybe it's two blocks. But after the day you've had, you make it home. And the day is almost over. You relax. Get some dinner. Watch a movie. Do something. Hang out. And you finish your day.

Mind you, I've skipped what could have probably been two dozen other incidents that might or might not have occurred during the day. One could have been you going poop. Another one could have been a speeding ticket. Another one may have been the greatest (or worst) lunch in the world you've ever eaten. Some of the incidents may have involved gossip at work, idiot coworkers or just dealing with lame immature stupid bullshit that you and no one else should have to deal with.

But whether good, bad or ugly, just remember one thing. The most predictable thing about every day that you live is the unpredictability. And everyday...

Is a winding road.

10 Scenes From 'The Office' That Make You Believe In True Love Again

Yes, "The Office."


We all know "The Office" is known for its hilarious scenes, pranks and colorful characters. However, the series also has some of the most romantic scenes between couples.

1. Jim and Pam Stay Together (S9:E21)

When Jim accepts a sports marketing job in Philly, Jim is unable to fully commit to this job in Scranton and his job as a father, causing major strain on Pam to take care of the children as she feels her husband become increasingly more distant. As a result, this causes one of the first major fights and serious complications within their marriage that potentially could have lead to the end of their relationship. After having so many problems within their marriage, Jim and Pam go to marriage counseling and try to fix their problemed relationship. And, in this scene, they realize their love for each other and their love is strong enough to overcome any challenges they were facing.

2. Michael's Proposal to Holly (S7:E19)

Michael Scott's Proposal to Holly is one of the most notable things that Michael has done right in the series. After getting the help of his office workers and brainstorming ideas, Michael comes up with the most elaborate and romantic proposals. And, all of them give Michael the go-ahead by saying that Holly is his perfect match (which I 100% agree with). With the whole room lit with candles and the fire sprinklers going, the scene becomes more romantic even if things didn't go to plan.

3. Jim's Video To Pam (S9:E22/23)

After Pam says the heartbreaking words that she fears "she is not enough " for Jim, everyone feels for Pam's insecurities. In any other situation or marriage that isn't that strong, these insecurities could potentially ruin a strong relationship. However, Jim is able to calm Pam's fears about her not being enough by showing her a video of their love over the years. Jim will and will continue to be in love with Pam, highlighting that she is the most important thing in his life, above all else even his career.

4. Dwight and Jim (S4:E4)

This hands-down is one of my favorite scenes from "The Office." Although it is a fairly sad scene, it is a deep confession by Jim over his love of Pam, followed by a passionate kiss with Pam. The kiss definitely shows an overwhelming love for Pam that Pam will never fully known or understand. Yet, he truly treasures her. And, this scene also shows Dwight's vulnerable side. Although Dwight has been arrogant, prideful, and confident, his love for Angela breaks him down, showing he truly loves her. Both bond over their strong love for the gals they are trying desperately to woo.

5. Dwight and Angela's Wedding (S9:E24/25)

After a whole series of back and forth romance between Angela and Dwight, they finally get together. Their dance is also awfully adorable as Dwight swings Angela to and fro because she cannot walk (due to long, complicated reasons). In addition, it warmed my heart hearing from Michael Scott of his children and his family cellphone plan. After wanting children for the whole entire series, Michael finally got his wish with the love of his life.

6. Dwight Confesses to Angela (S9:E22/23)

Finally, after a series of waiting, Dwight and Angela finally confess that they love each other. Dwight realizes that he wants to be with no other women by Angela. Before he is about to marry another "perfect" milkmaid, he is overwhelmed with hesitation and conflict. And, Jim tells Dwight that there is someone one person that will make you drop everything. And, for Dwight, that one person is Angela. And, it so happens Phillip is Dwight's son too.

7. Halloween Party (S7:E6)

This is one of my favorite Jim and Pam moments because Jim shows time and time again that he really loves Pam. When Jim and Pam encounter a newly hired co-worker who actually happened to have gone on a couple of dates with Pam, the couple is confused by why this newly hired co-worker didn't call back Pam after those couple of dates. They find out that this co-worker thought Pam was dorky and wasn't interested. However, Jim really showed that he is head over heels for Pam because despite embarrassing himself by dressing up as Popeye, Jim wanted to show that he loves his "dorky" wife.

8. Jim and Pam's Wedding (S6:E4/5)

Jim and Pam finally get married. However, their wedding doesn't turn out as amazing as they expected it to be. There are many mishaps and issues that occur at their wedding that they realize that they rather get married by themselves. So, Jim and Pam escape their wedding and have the solitary wedding of their dreams at Niagra Falls.

9. Holly and Michael Get Back Together (S7:E15)

Holly and Michael had an on again off again relationship from the moment they met. However, Michael Scott had also been madly in love with her from the moment they met. And, I find their relationship very endearing because they do seem to be like soulmates. This episode proves that they think very similarly. The series has highlighted multiple times that not only do they have the same sense of humor but they understand each other's references and finish each other's sentences. Although any love with Michael Scott might not be a conventional love scenario, they live a very happy life, and it so happens they both want the same thing: marriage and children.

10. Pam's Parent's Divorce (S5:E15)

When Jim describes to Pam's parents how much he loves Pam, this makes Pam's father realize that he does not love his wife and divorce's Pam's mother. This comes at a major shock to Pam and her family. Pam initially blames Jim until she learns the truth. Even at the peak of his marriage, Pam's father didn't feel anywhere need the same as how much Jim loves Pam, showing that Jim's love for Pam is extremely worthwhile and deep.

Trend-Setters Versus Trend-Takers

Are we in a space time continuum where trends are no longer original?


Trends, how do they start? I mean watching the American Girl movies like Kit Kittredge and her developing the outfit trend of chicken bag dresses are really vibing off of me. Down the street in the mall, there are scarf scrunchies from the fifties back in style. My mom never even wore those. It got to the point that I would continuously ask her why she never left me all of her clothes and accessories. "BeCaUsE I NeVeR kNeW tHeY wOuLd CoMe BaCk!" Like I really could've saved so much money and had authentic, vintage style but NO, that would make too much sense for it to happen.

The Beatles have always been an iconic band and have made a profound impact on the music industry. From record players to lava lamps, Polaroid cameras and bell-bottom jeans- these are all impeccable trends that have already been brought attention years before we brought them back. Did millennials really believe that they were original with their trend setting?

Now that's actually hysterical, we truly need to up the game and develop trends that weren't already handed to us. The real question is can we handle that? Are we capable of star-struck material and heart-throbbing boy bands? Besides the breakups and makeups of One Direction and the Jonas Brothers, how do they even compare to Queen, NSYNC, and the Backstreet Boys?

It's 2019 and the only original trends are bogus laws and a stifling rise in climate change, wake up America...
