....is this thing on?

Posted by Kyle Jacobson , Monday, May 17, 2010 5:31 PM




Hi, My name is Kyle. I am new to this whole writing universe. I got hooked approximately 4 days ago. I wrote a paper for my English class once. There's nowhere to go but up, right?

         Let's see. I guess I just talk about stuff... I was thinking the other day (some unspecified day other than today) about how others see the world. We have all wondered what it would be like to change bodies for a day. See what it's like from another's perspective. Shedding light on why they do what they do. It would give a whole new meaning to walking in another's shoes, since your's probably wouldn't fit in your new body. This has taken me to new heights in my metaphysical state of thinking (when things I say sound smarter than they actually are) I have been brought to a conclusion about judging others. We can't. We have no idea what they're thinking, their pasts, their situations. It's like not eating a fruit because it smells like it has been sitting out for two weeks and dragged through a leper colony, ridiculous. We must not judge. If someone has a knife in our back, maybe it's for a good reason? Perhaps, he just wants a hug. Speaking of that, I am going to talk with my good friend, the President, and make "hug a criminal day". I conclude that crime will go down .002% (Not based on any actual predictions or facts).

       Unemployment is plaguing the nation. People have been advised to walk around with masks to not contract this terrible disease. I can't find jobs anywhere, and when your dad fires you from doing the dishes you start to wonder if the reason you don't have a job is YOU. So I started my own business. That way I can't be fired and I get to make sweet business cards. It's called, "Kyle's business." I'm not entirely sure what we do yet, but we have a 401k plan. Sweet! We are currently hiring if anyone is looking for a job as a safety inspector at    -$20 an hour. You will guaranteed have the coolest boss. (Not backed by actual guarantee).
                                              
       What is a dream? Not the kind where you are being chased by random types of movie sweets, but the one you have stored way up in the cranny of your cranium. It's something we want more than anything right? Then why don't we have it? "It's for someone else.", "I'll never be good enough", "[add lame excuse here]". If we don't follow our dreams we aren't following anything. Did I say it didn't require work? hold on...checking to make sure I never said that....we're good. Where was I...? Yes. Work! I have had my share of people complaining about their current situation. My response: DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!! If you have done everything in your power to reach your dream and you can't, then I will give you a license to complain. It's like a license to kill only with less blood and less lawsuits. I'm talking about going for IT. Whatever IT may be. I'm not going to let people tell me what I can and cannot do! Except for city officials, Smokey the bear and God. What I'm trying to get at is just start! You don't have to quit your day job, your night job, or your graveyard shift job. Just try, learn, leap, trip, fall, get back up again, you're never gunna keep me down, grow, achieve. When I put a bunch of action words into a list, then it motivates you. Take your spare time and follow your dreams. Dreams will take you to unimaginable places and maybe a few imaginable ones.

            This was my first blog post. More to come. Stay tuned,
                                                                                             Kyle

Kyle, it's true about the dream thing. I've always had a specific dream. I sat on it for a long long long long long long long long time. While I sat on it, I got further away. One day, I figured it out..."I have to use ACTION to reach that dream!" A scary thought, I know. So, I put forth the effort, and guess what, I still haven't reached that dream, but I'm oh so stinkin' close!! And I'll NEVER EVER give up until I'm there! Why? Because I'll never reach that dream if I give up. Simple as that. I like your blog so far. Keep it up :)
ps. what is one of your dreams?

Derek and Andrea Says:
