Losing you hurt

WE take life for granted. We are only giving one shot at life and we take it for granted. We think that we will stay healthy forever, when we wont. The truth is that we hold back in life and we are stupid for doing so. Life is a hour glass where each second is another grain falling through the glass.
We settle in life, hoping that one day everything will come together. “One day, I will go back to school, but not now” We put our dreams to the side because it would be too uncomfortable to actually do something different. So instead, we will stay at that same job, the one that we hate so much, because we don’t think that we will ever be good enough for the job that we want. It could be from fear or maybe from laziness, either way, we are just wasting our precious time on this earth. Someday, you will wake up and you will be old. You will see that your whole life was wasted because you feared to do anything different. Those dreams that you had will be just that, DREAMS! You’ll want to go back in time and change those decisions, but it will be to late. Genies don’t exist. You can’t just wish back those years that you wasted, but instead, you get to look back and see everything that you gave up.
I watched as a mans life was taking from him. He was the nicest guy you would ever want to know. He always walked around with a smile, never upset about his life. Then, out of no where, he was taking from us. He had a history of heart problems, which is what caused him to die, but he still had a lot of time left (in the eyes of years.) He didn’t know that today was going to be his last day. He got up like he usually does. He went to work and clocked in. He was coming back from the bathroom. He stopped to sit in my store, but he wasn’t able to take the seat. Instead, he had a heart attack and fell to the ground. I didn’t know what to do. I called the emergency line and got someone there as soon as possible. When they got there, his face was purple. He was lifeless, but they went to work, hoping that they could bring him back. He had a heart rhythm when he left, but he didn’t make it.
Today taught me a lot. He still had years left to live, but he wasn’t able to take advantage of those years. This should wake us up to see that we aren’t indestructible, we could die at any time. I watched this young kid (when I was young) fight for his life at 10 years old. He also didn’t survive. He was 10-years-old and had his life taken from him. He had a bright future in whatever he decided to do, but he wasn’t giving the shot.
Stop! Stop holding back from living your life. If you want that damn job, bust your ass to get that job. If you want to go back to school, then go back to school. Don’t tell yourself that you will go back soon. You might not have that much time left. You are cheating yourself from the happiness that you deserve. So, take a damn stand. Tell yourself that you are going to succeed, then go out there and actually make a damn move. You were called for a purpose, it is your responsibility to fullfill that purpose, because life could end any day. Don’t be too scared to make moves today, where you miss out on living tomorrow.

Dear Ben,
You inspired me to live a happy life. You were someone that had lost everything, but you still stood strong and kept a big smile on your face. I will miss not seeing you, everyday, in my store. See, you were someone that I would wait to see. You came in and we would discuss history as you waited for your food. You always had a new book, most of them I didn’t know about, but you kept me interested in the topic. I was never a history fan, but I could see that you were really passionate about it. I didn’t know what you were talking about, but I couldn’t stop you from talking, nor did I want to. I will miss our talks, but know that you inspired me to live a happy life. Even after you lost your house, you still kept that big grin on your face. Thank you for your lessons. I will never forget you!! Rest in peace!

We are sleeping.

We are sleeping in the living room. We have decided that it is time to get rid of our bed. Our bed is so worn out that we can feel the springs in our back. For me, it’s nothing but Ariel is the other way. She cant fall asleep on most nights, so I know it’s time to get a new bed. 

Since we don’t want to sleep in the bedroom, we decided to get an air mattress. The air mattress was pretty cheap. It cost us $30 and it came with a built-in pillow. We went the cheap route and got a manual air pump. This was such a horrible idea…It took me about 30 minutes to fill up a queen size bed. I have decided to get a battery powered air pump, so I don’t have to break my back airing up the matress.

We are going to get a matress soon, but this will work for now. We have been wanting a new bed for a long time so this plays perfectly into plan. We also love that we now have our own air mattress for camping.

I would love to continue, but Ariel wants me to get to bed. She is cold and wants to cuddle. I love you guys! Keep up the good work on those resolutions and stay safe. Remember to eat what you want! 💪💪💪

Stop calling me, you’re a creep. I told you I don’t want to talk, clearly, from not answering your 20th call. You could spend some time fixing things, yet you just want to talk from a distance. I don’t see why I need to do your work, nor will I! You will screw this up, again, and we will have to wait for it to be fixed, well until I ask him to do it again! You’re a failure, and I hope you get what is coming to you, one day, then you might see what you had. You’re worse than the woman, I saw as a hero.

She was the one I loved, but she didn’t love me. She wanted to take everything from me, starting with my trust and ending with my happiness. I was forced to go through a few systems to find my way, and she wasn’t here when I got out, she was gone in the wind, never to be seen again, but that was the best part. She tore me down and convinced me of things that weren’t true. She was a monster. The drugs, she took, took her over and forced her to be someone that she wasn’t, before. I am so glad that I am away from here. If I were still under her, I wouldn’t be anywhere. It is sad that I had to compare you to this lady, but you are a spitting image of her. You lie, you cheat, and can’t make a right decision for the sake of your life!

She couldn’t make a decision either, that’s why she let her family decide. She told me that I wasn’t good enough. I died inside that night, followed by hours of empty stares. I became a family member to that wall, during our departure. He would listen to my sobs, though I wish it were you, it wasn’t. You moved on, deleting me from your life, like what we had was nothing. I hate you for that. I hate you for the fact that I loved you, but you could walk away, like that! Now, I can’t get you off my mind. I might say “I am fine” or “I don’t care” but that is such a lie! You are still on my mind, but now it’s anger that fills my heart. My hatred hasn’t been stronger since she didn’t show up, though.

She was told to be there, but she didn’t show up. I had to do all of the work, while she got to have fun. What a liar! She said she was good, but she sucked, I aint even talking about that….Her work style sucked. I stuck my head out for her, but she took me for granted. That is why I shut down….I would murder her, if it wasn’t punishable, and would hide her body at the bottom of the ocean, so that she would be ate by her family, but even they would spit her out. That voice is what I hated the most.

She wanted everyone to hear her, but she had nothing to say! Ha! That’s what I hear from you! I don’t hear anything from you guys! I didn’t fit it, so you cut me out of the picture, and force me to watch you, from the outside. I won’t though! I don’t miss you guys, because you were never close, anyways. You never supported my decision, the one to change my life. Nah! You didn’t like how it made me, and you wanted the old me back, yet you didn’t even like that guy, either. I wont be a puppet!

Someone else tried to make me a puppet after you, also. They said they were my family, that they would never leave. But one decision changed their minds, as they kicked me out and told me to go away. I didn’t hesitate, as I didn’t want to be there anyway. They were crazy, as they only want to control people, using text. I didn’t fall for the trap, and I prospered because of that. I found something I was looking for, though now I hate it!

I can’t stand the double-standards that go along with the game, and that I cant do what others do! WE were told not to do something, then he was able to do that same thing. I couldn’t believe it, so I asked “Why?” I was told that he asked before, so he was granted the opportunity. Now, after he’s gone, I have to pick up the weight and carry it. I want to give up that part, and move on to better things, but then what would I do?

I would miss his hair, for one. He never combs his hair, yet wonders why he doesn’t have a girl. You need to take care of yourself, before you can expect a girl to like you! But you don’t care, because secretly you’re gay! We know it, just admit it! I don’t know why you hide it! I would just come out and say it, that way you can move on and be happy. Maybe that’s it! Maybe you want to stay “Unpresentable” in order to save yourself, for the man that has your heart. I just solved the puzzle, I just found Atlantis! Bro, not cool.

What’s not cool is the lack of faith, though. Yes, I am talking to you. You think that I will continue to do this, without some push? I am done swinging! I wouldn’t want to waste your damn time, with another page. I will stop, I will walk away. Then as I am walking away, you will ask me to come back, but it will be too late. I would already be gone, and you would be the blame. So please continue, continue to say that you don’t have the time. You will see what you had, but it will be too late. Every artist is remembered after their death, I just didn’t want it to come to this. I didn’t want to have to force myself, but if it works, then I will take that door! I won’t ask, anymore! This is over, this is done, I am not immortal, and my bat has been swung. I don’t put myself in the least of those, anyways. You wouldn’t understand my thoughts, anyways! You think you would, but you can’t even go a day without being fooled by a door that says pull. You are tools, and I’m no longer your damn workbench!

I drop the mic, walk out the door, find a street, and ask for God. I wait for an answer, but nothing is there. I want to find someone to do it, but no one is there. The street is dark, lights are out, no one is walking and I need someone. I walk down the street, that is when I found you! I found happiness in you. I had to run after you, but I lost you. My hope was lost, and I didn’t know what to do. This is when I reached back out to you, but you IGNORED me! Luckily, I have someone! You….were….so…..Fake…….

The End!

The flash toy.

I have been searching all over the place for this. I have been to one thousand places, hoping that someone carried at least an action figure of my favorite superhero, The flash. I found every other POP doll, but I can’t find The Flash anywhere, and its getting really old and annoying. I have been to Target, Wal-mart, Gamestop, Best Buy, and many others, yet I couldn’t find it. But then I went to my favorite store and there he was, he was sitting on the shelf in front of my eyes. I was finally back down to Earth, thanks to Barnes and Nobles.

This wasn’t the first time I saw this doll, sitting on this shelf. I passed up on getting it before. It was a couple weeks ago, and I was wanting to save money. It was close to payday, and I told myself that it would be there when I was ready to get it. So I waited for payday, well on payday I went to the bookstore. I nearly ran to the spot of the Pop toys, and dug through the available toys. I couldn’t find it, they were sold out at the time. The doll was gone, but I knew where I could get one. So I ran to the mall, knowing that Hot topic had one of the same toys.

     But I was mislead again, they must have sold out of the toy also, because it was gone. Being upset, I went to Meijer’s, but they didn’t have it either. They had every one expect for The Flash. This includes; Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonderwoman, and Robin, yet no Flash? I was angry, so I picked up a deadpool doll. This was my attempt to mend a broken heart. Though, I love Deadpool, there seemed to be something missing. I needed and wanted something Flash. With the disappointment present, I went to walmart and spent money on a t-shirt and a small action figure. This made me happier, but I wanted the POP toy. I needed to have my small Flash doll, sitting on my desk, staring at me while I write.

      This went on for about two weeks, until yesterday. For some reason, after work, I wanted to go to Barnes and Noble. I have been learning to lock pick, and wanted to pick up a book on the art, so I asked Ariel if she wanted to, she said yes. When we got to Barnes and Noble, she wanted to drink Starbucks. I enjoyed a small piece of Cheesecake as I sipped on a delightful White Chocolate Mocha w/ honey. The drink was amazing. I love the extra amount of sweetness the honey applies. So after I had my coffee, I got up and walked back to the service desk. I asked them to look up the book on lock picking. During the search, the woman got a little awkward, so my cousin told her that I wasn’t going to be breaking into any houses. She laughed, but he cut her off, and told her we were spies. The look on her face was priceless, but she continued the search. She notified us that she didn’t have the book, but she could order it. I quickly replied with a “no, we can’t give out our information, we will pass.” We turned around as she began to laugh loudly.

       After scaring the crap out of a lady, I walked over to the POP display, not holding onto any hope. I walked over to the display, and it was there! It was sitting high and glowing. I was full of joy when I picked up the toy, and walked to the front of the store. I was ready to get home and place it with all of my other toys! Now that I have the Flash I will be trying to receive The Hulk, and finally (after getting The Hulk) I will be getting Jason Vorhees. After that my toy collection will be complete, and I will finally have all the toys I need. This is thanks to Barnes and Noble! Thanks for giving me The Flash, you are the true MVP!

A big disappointment!
I walked out of my workplace and to my car, it was a beautiful day. It was slightly raining, which is how I like it! We just got paid and I was ready to go spend some cash on a new laptop. The laptop was one that was written down due to overstock. With the computer being so cheap, My wife and I decided that both of us would get one, her for work and Netflix, and me for writing and porn. It was a great plan.
When we first saw the laptop, a few weeks back, we weren’t really wanting to spend the money so we told ourselves “oh next pay.” We thought that the laptops would still be on sale and that we would finally have something nice. So we get into our beat up Ford and drive over to the far-side Walmart. Though, not being a big fan of Walmart electronics, it was marked down low enough to snag it up with no true regrets. Also, it was a new laptop, why wouldn’t you get it?
We got to Wal-mart and walked in. I needed to buy some transmission fluid, so that was the first stop. We looked for a good few minutes, as we couldn’t find the transmission fluid, since it was beside a line of motor oil with the same label. After collecting a few bottles for the car, we rounded the corner into the electronics. Having a feeling that the laptop wouldn’t be there, I made a few other purchases first; we looked at the aux wires, the clearance for electronics and the movies. After our hearts were ready for disappointment, we walked over the laptops.
The laptop was there. It was a light blue HP with all the perks I want, but there was no price tag. I was confused, so I walked over to the other side where the other higher priced laptops sit. “How can I help you?” an employee asked. I explained to him that we wanted the light blue laptop and that it was recently discounted. He agreed that the laptop was a discounted item but that they had sold out of the product and they aren’t getting anymore in. He told me that they were at other stores, but they weren’t at the cheap price as here, which I knew. I was upset, the one  time I wanted something nice and had the money, it was gone? Just my luck.
It does seem like every time that something is going my way, something else has to happen to cause me to not get my way. It is like the universe doesn’t want me happy, so it will throw mountains in my way so that I stumble. Let me tell you, it is getting very annoying. I only want something nice, just once. But for now I will continue to write on my tablet and watch my porn on the T.V. (That is a joke!) Hopefully one day I can get something nice. I laugh and shut my tablet.
