One More Before Breaking

Maybe, I'll be up on here at 1 am again. I don't know, but I doubt it. I might be enjoying my video games again even though I say I'm going to stop wasting my time with them. I'm a thirty-one year old still getting the fun buzz over playing games. Yeah, that's pretty old considering the audience I figure to be reading those posts.

I think being upfront like that is nice at my own personal expense because it gives a sense of non-hostile environment and something good to laugh about before reflecting on serious matters again, which people really have problems and issues over. I think my style is not meant to be really challenged aggressively or from a mean standpoint or else it will just make you feel weird to begin with.

That's probably why I'm not really stood up to that often. I actually think now that if I really put in the time and effort then I could have solved my problem with idiots back in the day. I can do it now, I suppose and I think I'll just keep my head up high with confidence.

Anything Now

I'm really taking a little bit of my time right now to write anything that's on my mind now. I'm pretty much locked in from having committed myself to put something on this blog. I think that's where the magic might happen for me. It's when I really decide to put forth a consistent effort then I'm able to experience the fruits of the labor and not really mind the hardships I went through in the past.

I have this initial start-up fear of doing stuff sometimes and get overwhelmed to try new things. I don't think I should really let them debilitate me. I think bravery for me is just being upfront about a lot of stuff. Not a lot of people try that hard, so standing out might be a pain because I don't want to work that hard too. I guess it comes down to knowing what you want and having pride over some things that actually count in life.

Doing Everything On My Own

Obviously, you can't hire someone to do the work outs for you so your body becomes ripped. Likewise, it seems to feel like that when it comes to investing. It's definitely better to know what you are doing and be the one to make the comfortable decisions and do what you want to be doing.

From doing my reading, there seems to be many reigning ideas and what works best for me is the lazy and clean method instead of trying to gun for profits on a daily basis with a Type A personality-like disorder. It becomes like another 8 to 5 job which isn't what I have in mind doing for the rest of my life, no matter how good the pay is. If it's fun, then maybe I'll consider but I don't the fun might turn old and stale for me after awhile. I want to be free to adventure and roam other places. This girl I hardly know on Facebook ended up using her savings to go travel and now she's back in college mode. She's pretty funny and I like to think that she's my type but frankly, she might not be that intelligent as I would have liked.

Anyhow, I post funny stuff on her posts that make me laugh a whole lot and then I have to focus on my job after while eliminating those distracting thoughts. It's pretty hard to do, but not unbearable for me. I'm still trying to maintain a long-standing composure while being very content in life which is something that I haven't been able to establish yet. I think my answer to those problems is to live through those struggles while depending on God for support.

Happy Labor's Day

I guess I have the sense like the rest of the people on the planet who live in America and work with a pretty, decent working brain to know today is Labor's Day. I don't feel anything special over it right now. What I do want to do, however, is work out and exercise discipline now.

For disciplining myself, I'm going to try to avoid some things. I really do want to earn a lot of money comfortably and that's where I'm currently working at. I also want to have a sexy body, despite being short and having some pimple scars! I've been told that I'm pretty good looking with glasses, so yeah, I think some people just get carried away with their agenda that they don't care about another person's looks for the time being.

Sirens Don't Bother Me Now

I think I managed to get it emotionally under control now in that I don't have to feel paranoid when I hear the paramedics approach my house. It was like this daunting reminder that I had to be scared for my life because the law was out to get me for my secret acts inside my own closet.

Hey, I think there's some privacy laws intact too, so I guess I don't want to even be in the negative spotlight and that could very well be the reason why I feel so paranoid about getting caught. I never really did think it was cool to do drugs, so I never did them illegally. I don't see the point of relying on a dead plant to give you a high after lighting it up.

Where I get my high is from looking at things visually and after being tempted, I have this strong Christian belief of waiting to be married, so yeah, I never hit any home runs despite being given those offerings about five times now in my entire life. Maybe, they weren't hot enough for me; I don't know, I seem to find flaws even in the most beautiful person on the Earth, like ummmm, Cindy Crawford. She's a pretty old mom, despite having flawless looking skin.

Interesting Time To Post

I'm posting like at 1:30 in the morning. Well, it's Labor's Day so I guess it's okay to be up this late doing nothing! I'm finding that people don't really appreciate jokes that much as they do with people who are just associated with success or beauty. I guess those are the qualities that attract people more than just being funny and interestingly different.

I was told by a buddy of mine that I don't really follow the pack too often and it's true, I don't. Seriously, now I'm taking the approach of solving the problem and not anything else. Oh yeah, I need to wash my car. Man, I'm getting so ignorant because my mind is feeling so stoic now. It's like I don't really have that much emotional attachment to things anymore that I could really do something boring for the rest of my life, like working at a company that makes me the big bucks!

I still get a emotional buzz from communicating with my girlfriend right now. Yeah, I think I can say for reals that I do have a girlfriend or another significant other. We're dealing with a distant relationship right now but we do communicate via writing. Go figure, a man who used to have some anger issues, told me that my writing sucks and it's going to get me nowhere in life and that I should stop it. I think he was approaching it from the wrong angle. He was just mad because he wasn't able to control me and he felt that he was so right. Without the need of tackling him to the floor and screaming at his face and then apologizing and then repeating the process over again repetitively, I think the solution is to really reveal where he's being faulty and laugh about it underneath while showing some genuine sympathy of how he's going through a hard time and just be upfront about things.

With This Whole Posting

Last year I think it was, I ended up posting around 100 of these in a two month span and probably averaged 20 in one day! I don't really want to repeat that again, so I am definitely going to try to do the five a day approach. Like having five fruits and vegetables a day and getting at least 5 minutes of sleep a day in for the rest of my own entire existence! That's easy said and done for me- I still remember this one female friend whose now engaged to a pretty chubby guy commenting on how she feels weird from having insomnia.

She is ultra skinny by the way so I guess there's a saying that opposites might attract. Hey, I went out on a few unofficial dates with her over a few months so she thought it would be a good thing to go after me in a relationship. I was so clueless to how attractive she really is- she's just not really my type I guess. She just doesn't have that one giving attitude where I look for the most, and I'm sure other guys might be able to relate to it.

Catching Up

I'm going to try to post like five a day now. I'm just going to randomly post anything that's on my mind to try to catch up. I remember for the past couple years, I've been putting it off the last minute and I don't find that to be very comfortable for me now. I guess I felt like I had to prove something by doing other meaningless stuff before putting my time into getting the important parts done. Man, I was stupid!

Some days, it's really nice to post photos on this site and write stuff pertaining to the visual while trying to make good, clean jokes at the same time. I am definitely a real person blogging on this site with a personality that sort of likes to be a goody-two-shoe and out of trouble. I am a dude who prefers not to spat out curse words and think negatively towards others, no matter what jam I'm going through.

The trick has to have a positive association of being realistic and imagining resolving solutions. The focus is really not on how bad the person is because that's just a waste of time and puts you in a more, angrier predicament. It's really about fixing the problem while focusing on it with the imagination and having a strong spirit over it. It's like living through adversity and making proper adjustments.

I Want To Get A Six Pac

Nowadays, I figure that if I'm going to end up with a killer body, there's two ways to go about it: get surgery or do it the traditional hard way through proper nutrition and diet, exercise, and rest. I wouldn't feel right about getting surgery because I might still be carrying some unhealthy habits afterwards. The traditional way seems to be the best because of the discipline that it requires and how that could carry over with other intense activities.

I'm starting to think that maybe there is a way around a lot of my issues. One of my reasons for wanting to get a 6-PAC on my abs, not a six-pack of beer, is that it looks like I finally have a legitimate girlfriend! She's about four inches taller than me- so I'm going to try to stretch out my bones a little more and see if I could tone that down to just two inches.

Hey, if a short guy like me could do it then not everybody can do it because I sort of have an intelligent mind. I think intelligence mixed with a little bit of charismatic strength while any size will do the trick. There was this one actor who stood only three feet tall and he's married to a beautiful woman! Man, that's really standing up to the plate and getting it done.

Okay, so height doesn't matter and it feels that way only if I'm in a happy mood. I have some buddies making fun of my height which is hilarious. It's all good, and I don't really care now. I think some people still have like a short height phobia or just feel weird about being in a relationship with one because it's just plain different and others might give off this influence of how you have to follow the pack. For some reason, tallness does have this innate sense of attractiveness and emotional sense of security. What it really comes down to in the long run is really the quality of the person's heart, not their sensual body parts!

Behind Schedule

It looks like I'm spending so much way less time on this blog now. I guess I'm a lot better equipped at being an upfront person. Actually, it doesn't really matter how I go about it, as long as I'm a happy and positive person, I can manage almost anything with people. I'm going to try to keep that upbeat heart wherever I go in life now.

Basically, I used to think how some people were just making me angry from having a bad personality. Now, I don't even think that way about them. The way I see it is that it's really about managing my own personal feelings and then resolving the problem by looking at taking care of it.

Absolute Charity Now

I've made literally a few pretty pennies from typing on this blog alone. I don't believe in some of the advertising. Like going back, I've been getting these weird ads about Mormons and they are not a religious group I deem to be at an appropriate level of being strict with following the Bible. I think the Bible is the absolute book that I need to connect with God and live a fully and satisfying life. The Bible even stands for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. I never thought of something funny and dry like that would even come to together as a word. The Bible is also the most selling book in history of mankind off the face of the Earth! Second place comes Don Quixote. I remember reading that story somehow and having this feeling of mysticism. It was about a man who was lusting after adventure and then he ends up dressing himself up like a knight or some big shot back then in the medieval times and then imagines slaying a dragon which he likens from a windmill. Overall, it makes a a great bed time story to be enjoyed by children and absorbed by adults!

I'm not going to try to sell out with a Google ad now. I'm letting it go and all of this writing I'm doing is just out of my own personal enjoyment. I'm a smart cookie and have an interesting way of having fun that could make others feel a little less than me sometimes. At the same time though, I think I can convince people who hated me to also like me as well. I'm just that type of manipulative person, and I think we all do need a little of those persuasion skills. I was able to go from being an absolutely scary person to someone who is capable of turning the tables around and controlling my own anger while being able to laugh at other's stupid jokes.

Still, this has nothing to do with this post, I have to mention that I want to blow stuff up in a desert while creating bombs just for the heck of it. I'm not going to store explosives illegally either, but I want to experiment with that stuff safely and maybe launch my own projectile just for fun on the push of a button.

I Want To Do That

Last night, I was watching some motorcyclists doing tricks while flying off of man-made hills on a track! I was like I want to do a 360 in the air and do a back-flip with the bike, too. I was imagining one of my childhood buddies being irritated from doing tricks off his bike as a hobby and then considering on going pro but from his family being broke, he was blaming a professional biker for charging him $50 an hour for coaching services. I think he was just mad from considering him a sellout despite having been successful and maybe thought he was a greedy person.

$50 was a lot back then as 12-year old but now, maybe I could hack it once a week. I'm finally starting to add my own style with the things that I want to pursue after. I'm a pretty quiet person and keep to myself, I don't even contribute to group jokes. It's all individualistic and can be bad in that I alienate myself from others while expressing myself to be happy. I feel like I don't fit in because I manage a constant discipline of preventing myself from using swear words. I'm so serious about this! I don't believe in sounding out or even spelling cuss words. I have done !@#$ or s---- to distinguish those bad words but I don't think that's really too serious. I guess my heart is evil already anyway, but still I'm not going to go off dropping f-bombs.

From writing this paragraph, there is concern for my aggression with people who have problems with me. They are going to be like, just wait for this guy to be blowing up on me and causing me even more annoyances that I can't handle anymore. Basically, I have anger issues too and when I feel a problem with someone, I should just back away because I do ideally want to get along with people. Only when I'm ready to be straight-forward which I found to be working and in the mood for laughing at their idiocy then maybe I should reconsider contacting them. It's really about establishing a personal level of comfort with those individuals and feeling it's worth my time doing so.

However, it seems like the most important people to me have made me satisfied already. Maybe, I'm just doing a little too much going after people who just suck as a person with me even though other people who suck too and those who are nice might like them also.

Posting More Controlled Thoughts

Last night, I visited my close correspondent's house and he was on Facebook. I felt this feeling of discomfort for myself. I guess I'm not really connecting well with people or something on Facebook. I've had some issues with people not wanting to be friends with me anymore. It's like they would have told me what was their problem by now or got me in trouble for it, but they don't even have the ability to do that to me. I must be on a good balanced level of being that scary type person you don't mess with because I have the stuff but don't act on it and grab all of that negative attention from a bigger scope like the press.

I've noticed that ever since the shootings on Ferguson with the racial issue of a white cop killing a larger than life, black teenager, there have been less sirens sounding off in my area of travel. I don't know if I've had some unexpected visitors on my sites who read my comments and then influence the paramedics, cops, or firemen on the field or something to try to warn me of my own imperil!

Overall, it seems like there's this balance taking place and I guess the right people eventually do act on it and restore order and balance. The Bible states that God is patient and maybe another word for saying, slow to act, but when it finally happens that's what matters all along regardless of the concrete casualties and injuries that took place.

Manning Up To Anger Issues

My definition of being angry is having an uncontrollable bout of emotional energy that feels very uncomfortable. It can last for a long time or just come and go sporadically for random things that just occur in life. I'm not the same person that I used to be, and I use this belief of myself to help manage my own anger issues.

I've found out that being straight-forward has been the best thing for me! I guess I've grown up to care a whole heck about other people's business and being sensitive to their personal issues that depresses them or makes them laugh. Being honest for me has worked the best and given me a piece of mindfulness even if it seems so contradictory to others. Maybe, for some, they should not really being saying everything on their mind because it's just foolish talk that they are revealing. Obviously because of prideful and selfish reasons, some of those oddballs aren't going to stop and just keep pressing with their weird agenda! We all do need a little energy to pursue and push after something, but there needs to be a balance in what we go after or not.

It's pretty simple for a man, I think. Just go after making money and pursuing a life partner. It's pretty simple, and nowadays, I don't even know what's on the minds of people who like to read attractive comments and view pretty photos; it's like they are really wasting their time and not getting anything good done. It's just a bunch of baloney that you need to embrace sometimes and let go of.

Getting Back To Posting

I've been really reading what I've been putting on this blog for the last couple weeks or so and it seems like the material I'm covering is a happy/funny type of thing. This is the type of personality that really attracts me, and I'm trying to convey myself in this fashion as a writer.

I think the majority of people don't really find the time to think about what makes them truly happy. Even if they did, I think they sort of keep to themselves about it because it's human nature. Heck, I would be worried too about others getting jealous over me and not being friends with me anymore.

Still the worries that I have aren't really about making lasting impressions anyway. It's not even going to help me make a ton of money! I think it's just a bunch of baloney that I need to absorb into my own stream of being ticked off and just move on with. I'm not the same type of person that I used to be where I would invest my time into a person and completely shut myself down with the world. I was sort of a contradicting prick and nice guy at the same time back then. From being different like this, I was definitely not in the mix of getting into trouble with people gossiping about my personality. Yeah, those people seem to just need those types of conversations to feel comfortable or something in their daily walk.

Taking Care of Things

I guess I'm starting to get a little better at managing my own time, but it's still not that good as I would like it to be. I think I really have a lot of choices to make in the near future now. It's really neat in that my emotions are not stressing me out anymore and hindering me from pursuing my goals.

I used to feel very held back and totally impatient. I had like a learning disability that I couldn't relieve myself from for a long time. Now that I'm out of college and have found myself growing better from becoming a more adept reader, reading a lot of good material has really been great at improving my confidence level and helped me become a better at studying.

I guess I'll be gone for the next two weeks because I have to do another business trip, but I think I will still be able to write something on this blog. I do need to start catching up with my blog posts. I think I could easily manage five posts a day if I really wanted to, but it would possibly hinder with my own family arrangements.

Becoming Less of a Loser

Right now, I'm going to go off topic, instead of hanging out with some attractive people right now who like to hang with others, I'm just keeping to myself today and burning a whole bunch of old CDs that aren't mine onto my small, portable hard drive. I feel very happy, yes. I don't feel like a loser, period!

I'm grabbing my images by using a secret method that really works. Send me a link on the comments if you can do this too. I remember my random MUMBO-JUMBO (past posts that are full of baloney sandwiches) ramblings and even getting a comment on there. Man, I'm the man dude! I have my arms lifted high in the air while no one is watching except for the people on the Net.

I don't feel like a loser because this girl I liked and who wouldn't respond to me via texts finally replied back to me. I wasn't expecting it, and I think that's what the key is. Don't expect to be answered to by a pretty girl you feel like you have no shot of making your girlfriend! She isn't really the most gorgeous woman on the planet, even though I could change that thought in a heartbeat. It's a nonsensical sentence that's a little cryptic right now. I'm being not so straight-forward about it that I'm revealing it isn't and know that it isn't.

Controlling My Positive Energy

I believe that with the funny thoughts and aggressive imaginations I sometimes think up, I get a little jittery underneath and then lose track of my current situation. This happens to me for a few seconds a lot- I really need to exercise discipline because my mind is very powerful at staying motivated with doing the most meaningless tasks!

I remember writing complete baloney at one point and then getting in trouble because of it in school. I told the counselor that I had mental problems and then he laughed and let me off the hook. I was seen as a very smart kid you don't want to mess with in high school. I scared so many grown adults and I think I was still a minor, so it was weird totally. I'm not going into the details of what I wrote about because I don't want to get in trouble by someone else again.

My mind is so different from the pack that I don't really think a lot of the things I do is really that cool. It might be unique to a certain point, but then again, I'm just so different while being a completely normal person. I don't think I really connect with the masses too well on Facebook or anything, but I do write stuff a lot better than the old days and so those people don't seem to mind what I put on there or at least by the majority.

I guess I'm weird in a way that I can eventually figure out things and get to a happy resolution after following through from the climax! Yes, what I wrote is very cryptic right now because I was imagining something in my head. That stuff is private and I'm not covering it. Maybe, I won't even remember what I was thinking about a few years from now. Anyhow, I guess it's just the flow of moving with things and keeping myself occupied. After all, I'm trying to reach the meaningless 365 post again. Maybe, I'll go overboard from trying to cover the Bible verses at the same time this time around, so the minimum will just be 365 posts then.

Back To Bible Notes

I am basically no pastor, neither am I a prophet! I'm pretty much a nobody trying to read through the whole Bible and making sense out of it. I guess to some people, the thought of there being a God to them makes absolutely no sense. Okay, I'm not really saying anything to that- just that there hasn't been any scientific proof of God's existence or not, so it seems like the only thing an unbelieving scientist could do is just doubt beyond all measure and just go from there doing their routine and making a living off of their research.

 Anyhow, I've lived through the emotional ups and downs of life while being a Christian. I even went out trying to share my faith with others. A few individuals just shut the door on us- they were like "No thank you" and slammed the door on us; man, that hurt! There were a few times where a few guys I met out of the blue listened to the gospel and gave their life over to the Lord. Wow, that was phenomenal; I thought it was all me, but in the end, it's not! It's really the power of the Holy Spirit, through the blessings of the teachings of the Father in heaven. One weird Christian I used to hang with said to me, "Do your magic" after witnessing me leading someone to Christ. I was like "What???"

I am a total emotional wreck, but nobody cares because it's really what you do that counts. Like me writing incoherent and cryptic stuff sometimes bugs some people and they just get mad and worried and not wanting to have anything to do with me, especially if I put on negative body language with them. Man, my subtle body language is powerful along with the cryptic messages I write! It bugs the people I don't like for some reason at the moment a whole lot. It was after I managed to get over it that I managed to get those people to respond back to me in a nice and friendly manner. Man, I'm so good at leading people back to good standing with me. Whether a person wants to call it manipulating or not, I'm just happy the person no longer has any beef with me and that I can just move on without worrying about them and feeling worn out with them.

I don't have to be that angry man with Napoleon Complex anymore and start demotivating them and then building them back up with my weird philosophies being forced down their living conscious.

Appearance Doesn't Seem To Matter

Okay, this topic is for people who are a little mature. If you are a teenager and going through some issues of appearance then good luck at coming to terms with it. I had to go through all of that stuff too during my teenager years; I ended up popping a lot of my pimples, which was an idiotic act to do. Don't do that, just wash the face and let the acne clear up with some of that cream and be careful, if you take some medication for it.

I've had my decent share of women and men telling me straight-up while I stand there in disbelief that I'm a pretty good-looking guy. I would feel this uncomfortable thing underneath of how that's impossible to me and just not know how to respond to that complement. Now, I'm going to be like thank you and smile.

About the topic of appearances because I seem to err a little off topic for some reason because it's fun to do while others get a headache sometimes and then get mad, I notice that it doesn't really matter to me so much if a woman is beautiful on the outside. I want to have a special connection with my future wife someday, and I believe that if she's adorable enough to me then that's good enough for me. I don't care how others would feel about her looks because she would be the right fit for me while I'm in love!

Basically, I'm at the point where I surfed the Internet looking for beauty and there's like supermodels who people consider to be gorgeous and when I look at them, I think another friend I know looks like her and she might be better looking too. This is why I seem to not care so much about appearances anymore, it's just wasting my time looking at meaningless stuff when I could focus on making myself a rich man and healthy with six pack abs!

I can't find a replacement for that longing feeling of companionship with a beautiful wife. I keep on trying and failing; one of these days I'm just going to have defeat the enemy inside of me and make that boring and stupid side submit to my natural good qualities. No one has to know about how much effort I'm putting in and feeling at the moment and from struggling while it goes through the highs and lows. I'm just going to have to be consistent, while breaking out of my addictive cycles. Even if I'm not feeling it, I'm becoming more reliant on going with faith or what I believe in. One of my buddies just stays constantly depressed because he's a selfish guy honestly and can't break out of his shell to the point of no return. He's just stuck in his own ideologies he grew up with and can't solve it too well. Oh well, I guess he was just born that way and doesn't want to put in too much effort and end up getting tortured to a point he can't handle.

Wow, Been So Busy

I have some on-going issues that I'm trying to solve with myself. Okay, from being a Christian, maybe I might engage in some borderline sins that are not very heavily discussed about in the Bible. That's the area I struggle in currently, and I'm trying to make sense and meaning out of it so that I can abandon those tempting ideas that re-occur often after I do the questionable act.

For myself, I get tired easily after doing something that could be considered sinful. I'm being a little cryptic on purpose here because I'm afraid that my comments might not really be great for youngsters. I'm sure adults and other guys around my age would be able to relate to my struggles, but I don't feel right about writing so bluntly on this topic. However, that's how I end up scaring a lot of people as well even thought most of my friends are cool with it!

I can be very blunt in person or one-on-one, so I guess when someone has some unsettled beef with me then I could resolve it by being very upfront with the person. By being this way in writing or in person, after doing my deed of helping the other person come to terms with me, I'm like maybe that person isn't really that worth it to begin with. I then go cold shoulders with him or her for some reason, after I find a way to end the conflict the other person is feeling with me. Man, I feel like I'm an intelligent person when I make a person who is like "Get away from me" become a bit more flattering with me and then give me a thumbs up! I guess I got some mad skills in that area, man. It's awesome to have it underneath all of my aggressive moods of wanting to just be angry and controlling with others like a typical man with Napoleon Complex.

For the purpose of survival, I've had to develop some intra-intelligence which is I.Q. that is being aware of your personal emotions, throughout any time of the season. I've had some practice with it, so I understand how others can struggle with it. I do too, by imagining stuff in my head and then feeling afterwards, that's just plain wrong to do and then struggling to make peace with it by discovering alternative solutions on my own. I'm getting so much better at maintaining my own personal moods then I used to. Everything about me is almost normal or average in fact, but quite possibly a little above everything except for me being short, but no one seems to really care about that with me now.

Genesis 7-9

Yesterday, I ended up reading the pages of Genesis 7-9. I've been finding out that my reading ability has been enhanced from asking myself questions and actively focusing on the passages. I'm a lot more relaxed than before because I used to feel some reading anxiety from wanting to just get it down really fast and have the information flowing through my head right away. I guess I've been developing some better patience- a pretty, female friend once told me that I have a lot of patience and that I'm pretty straight-forward. I guess those are the qualities that she either wanted me to keep developing in or just felt I was well-matched up for it.

These chapters basically talked about how God kept a remnant of all living animals of the ground by commanding Noah to build an ark that would house a male and female pair of each living creature that lived on the land. God then decided to keep a covenant with Noah because of his faithfulness. It seems like from Genesis 6:5 and the verses 7, 12-13, God was really upset about mankind imagining evil things and making the world still a violent place, despite the people there having a long life. God would then shorten the lifespan to about 120 years as our maximum life. Yes, I did read about a woman who reached the age of 122 years, but still I think the Bible means to be around that approximate age.

One of my friends ended up blaming the people of back then for screwing it up for us. From having a discussion with him, discussing the verse Genesis 8:21, I told him that we are all capable of imagining bad things and then told him that he was falling short in the glory of God daily. He agreed and then asked, "Don't we all?" Yes, we do! It seems like the people of the world back then hasn't been changed that much to how people are today.

God ended up blessing Noah and his sons in Genesis 9:1 and told them to multiply the earth. Following closely with the view of the Bible, we would all be the descendants of Noah's family. I was told by speculation that the gene pool was very pure back then and among Noah's three sons and wives, their primary descendants would be able to intermarry and successfully produce healthy offspring. These days, it would be nearly impossible because the DNA from close relatives would mess it up and create unwanted mutations, if there's any offspring to go along with it. That's why it's illegal for siblings and first cousins to marry each other now.

One of my buddies told me that he likes to think of himself more as a descendant of Adam, rather than Noah. It would technically apply to us as well because Noah came from Adam's genealogy, too which can be found from reading Genesis 5.

Genesis 8 ended up confusing me a little from Verse 2. I'm not sure what rain from heaven and the fountains of the deep really means. Anyhow, the Bible was clear about mentioning that the raining and the flood had stopped and the ark would eventually reach dry ground. Noah would send out his birds to be scouts of finding out if there's dry land. What was crazy is that after the rain of forty days and forty nights, Noah's family and the animals would go on to live in the ark for a total of a whole year, which is found in Genesis 8:13.  To finish it all off for today because I'm busy and there's always another day to visit this section again, Genesis 9:16 talks about how God blessed us with a rainbow in the cloud that would show an everlasting covenant among God and all living creatures on the earth. It looks like God is sending a message that He loves everything that He created; despite the circumstances that we can go through sometimes.

The whole forty days and forty nights thing with the flood rings a bell in how Jesus spent those days fasting in a desert! Man, that's crazy because of all that heat and huge chance of being mentally aggravated from just constantly starving. Maybe, Jesus had a servant to fetch him water and some form of shade. Also the flood for some reason seems to represent some type of baptism to my head, it's like once we're baptized in the Lord's name, we don't have to ever go through it again and can know that we've been saved from eternal damnation and continue to practice the Lord's ways despite falling in sin on at least a blue moon or something like that. Yeah, it's if we can catch ourselves being like that. God promised that he would never make another flood to wipe up everything living on the ground ever again, which could be a huge point for believers and is found in Genesis 9:15.

Genesis 6

From Genesis 5, I forgot to mention how the Bible mentioned that a family led by Lamech became blessed with Noah, who would responsible for building the ark and leading his family through the great flood we've come to hear about. There are legends from other ancient cultures that also mimic this tale of a great flood. Could it just be a coincidence?  Also, scientific research is also showing that quite possibly, analyzing some canyons like the Grand Canyon might fit better with the model of a flood causing so much water damage from all that pressure build up in the past. It's sort of like going through a movement of changes in the past from religion to science, but some smart Christians have decided to embed science into their faith to try to diminish the room for doubting in their faith and encourage others to take up the cross. It also gives room to believe even stronger with more reasonable evidence in the Christian faith, even if it ticks off a lot of other religious leaders and doubters. They definitely would then have some emotional problems that need to get resolved.

Genesis 6 seems to talk about how the world ended up multiplying and having so much fun with partying like college kids with their fraternity and sorority parties. I'm not going into so much detail because I want to be like little kids could read this and laugh too while adults do the same. I heard in verse 2 talking about the "sons of God". I heard someone outright jump onto that verse and say that fallen angels took wives and their kids became giants. I'm not so sure about it- for now, it seems like for my reasonable thought is that sons of God is another way of saying male children of God. These male children of God started getting really fancy towards a multitude of women, just like the Muslim faith where guys would want to die for that in their messed up view of heaven.

The Lord than said in Verse 3 that instead of living like a thousand years, man is only going to live up to about 120 years. I think one lady reached the 120 mark in this generation of people living. It's so rare to find people living that long now. Also from Genesis 5, I recalled Enoch living only 365 years. We have only 365 days in a year with exception to a leap year, so that's how I remember it coincidentally. Enoch ended up like vanishing or something like that in Genesis 5:24. Could that be an example of the concept of rapture? There's this movie called Left Behind coming out. Rapture is a concept of people being taken up by God. A believer with an interesting twist in his faith was complaining about how that's considerably selfish. Oh come on now!

In verse 8, mankind took a twist of fate all thanks to one man Noah because he found grace in the eyes of the Lord!

A thing about the Bible is that obedient people who follow God's commands with all their hearts are considered to be righteous. Genesis 6:9 says that "Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God." Besides the world being corrupted with so much partying going on and abuse of other people, there was also much violence. People basically had emotional problems that turned them aggressive and impulsive about finding pleasure of some sort that Sigmund Freud talked about. It's similar to Cain having felt problems with his brother Abel. It's just wrong to go off killing your own sibling over a simple emotion of feeling angry with him. It seems like the world was filled with a lot of this mess at the time, and it even occurs somewhat today among strangers.

The tie in verse of this chapter seems to be found in Verse 18-19 where God told Noah, "But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark- you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you. And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female." God pretty much had a detailed plan and ensured for the survival and posterity of His creation. Just this full command to Noah with God's plan seemed to be so profound and to take care of everything. I'm in with trying to read the whole Bible again; I wonder what God's plan He has for me to accomplish and to gain from this go around again.

Genesis 5

Genesis 5 talks about how God made Adam in the likeness of God. Verse 2 talks about how God intended for both male and female to be blessed and become mankind! I watched this one show that talked about this fictional religious group that believed that the Bible meant the man to be worshiped over a woman. Not quite so, it's not even the other way around. The Bible made it pretty clear in the New Testament that there is really no male and female in heaven and that both men and women are meant to be equally children of God.

While on this planet, guys can sometimes be pretty much idiots and just get carried away with a pretty girl who dresses up all nicely. It's after you get to know her as a friend for awhile that maybe, she's a little bit more different than you could have imagined. One of my buddies was not quite gifted with a large brain and hasn't been too successful; he's a nice guy, but someone you would have to train for thinking more properly with pretty women. Yeah, I know what's on my mind like other guys do too with attractive women, but I choose to not act on it because the Bible says to wait until you are married to do all the fun stuff with your wife!

These guys in Genesis 5 got married while they were literally really old- like the average age for them was around 100 years old. For them, they had only lived 10% of their children-producing lives and the fun that goes with enjoying your life partner while worshiping God. Hey, it was a privilege for them, but we have something better offered at our table. We may live only about a third of our life before getting married and having kids, but it's a faster ticket for strong believers to get into heaven!

Genesis 4

I started all over with reading the Bible. The Word of Promise Audio Bible has this really neat playlist for reading the Bible in 365 days. Wow, it's so convenient in that I could choose to read the Bible in chronological or the whole Bible like it is. I'm running it in my mobile device which makes it even more portable for me to listen to the Word and follow along with my Bible. What's great is that it leaves me with a bookmark in that if I don't read the Bible then I could read again from where I left off and get to the 365th day mark of actually reading the Bible. Now, that's such a delightful blessing and discovery for me.

Genesis 4 leaves off from where Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden. They bore two sons Cain and Abel. It looks like the first detailed emotion of jealousy for mankind listed in the Bible in Genesis 4:5. Is it really God's fault for not accepting Cain's offering? That's something that leaves me thinking about human nature. Some people are just naturally better gifted at other things- like Bill Gates is better at making money better than anyone in the planet, or let's say the most beautiful and recognized person in the world happened to be your sibling and you were not that well-received by your parents, family, and friends compared to him or her. This leaves me thinking that it's normal for people to feel like they are going through a hard time.

God gave us an encouraging verse for us to remember, "If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it." - Genesis 4:7

We obviously failed, but it was from the shedding of Christ's blood on the cross and being resurrected with the story of love and ultimate sacrifice along with becoming God's child that Christians can take heart again in this world and lead others to this amazing and surpassing peace that can't be found anywhere in this world.

In Verse 16, it talks about how Cain went out from the presence of the Lord. I don't know if this means that Cain broke fellowship with God and chose to not enter heaven. In Verse 17, it talks about Cain getting intimate with his wife but did she come from Adam and Eve also? I don't think the Bible is really clear if God created more people from the dust like he did with the first man, Adam. I heard someone speculate that Adam and Eve had the most perfect genes and were thus able to live a very long life and reproduce with so much success and that their offspring would also go on to do the same. We can't intermarry our siblings today because the kids could end up with genetic deformities like it happened during the Egyptian rule of Pharaoh. The Pharaoh would marry one of his cousins or even sister, yuck! The kids had hemophilia, where the blood doesn't clot if the skin gets an open wound!

The chapter ends with saying that after Adam and Eve bore Seth, their third son- Seth's wife ended up bearing a son Enosh and that's where men began to call on the name of the Lord. The Bible talks a lot about calling on the name of the Lord, but I wonder if it means to pray to God and depend on Him for any circumstance we go through in our life. If would be great to learn more about that later on in the Bible.

Change Of Events

A female friend I supposedly had a crush on Facebook just posted on her status that she is dating a guy that she likes. Well, that sucks for me. I guess I'm not the right person for her. Well, her comments started getting a little too raunchy for me, and she has posted a lot of sexy photos of herself posing.

On the flip side, I did meet a really nice lady online. I really like how we had an ongoing relationship going via e-mail. I'm starting to not really mind the idea of entertaining the thought of dating different people. The way I'm looking at it is if we established something and then something didn't quite work out, then I'm not on a leash anymore and get to keep on trying again with another. The only thing that I'm going to fight so hard to keep is after I get married, I'm going to guard and treasure it with all of my heart; regardless of the person I end up with. Hopefully, she doesn't get all suicidal with me.
