Know Thy Self​​

Know Thy Self and you will learn more about your brothers and sisters with whom you share this planet.

Know Thy Self​​

Yeah, its an age old quest of philosophers, mystics and others that truly desire to achieve peace on earth and goodwill towards all mankind. What have you to lose in knowing your self, or for some of you; your selves? Friends will always stick by you as they have accepted you unconditionally or if not have already dropped you. Government leadership personnel will definitely not be at your back supporting you as they would then lose any control that they might have thought they had over you. And your siblings will probably disassociate themselves from you or claim you are mentally ill. Priests, ministers and professors of religion and psychiatry will want you locked away to protect the programs to which they earn substantial incomes when administering. So, now you have a fairly good feel for what might happen if you venture down the Rabbit Hole and attempt to research within your own subconscious mind;s memories of all that you have been, are and will become. When you link your imagination to your intentions and focus all your internal sourced energy towards a dedication of meditation and prayer as a silent seeking being within your own personal cognitive faculties you've begun to open a whole universal galactic library of reference materials that may not make initially any sense at all to whom you were presently presenting to the world in general. Oh, yes the 'Mask' or "Masks" are not constituted of any commonly found materials which filter air and dirt but are definite energy creations that you have chosen to front so that nobody knows truly more about you than you desire. Your search for yourself is best accomplished within the state of mind that desires loving attention and protection of the soul's original formulation by it's Creator. Also, knowing that you did not create this Self for which you seek will assist you to learn about the meat suit which encapsulates your essential Self. Stay tuned for the next paragraph on another day and until then become the peace of an atom of hydrogen which is isolated from those of oxygen and maintain your breathing freely and easily just as though you were sound asleep yet very wide awake, conscious and vigilent of all that transpires around you though you do not react only observe. Namaste'

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
