So, I went to the chiropractor (www.boldcitychiropractic.com) and had an evaluation done to see how bad my spine and nervous system really are. While I am not as bad as some I have seen, I am definitely in for some adjustments to fix the curve in my spine in two places in the future (base of my skull and lower back). Dr. Erin Zovath is really cool, easy to talk to and I am looking forward to seeing what she can do to help me improve my overall health in the future. She takes a very different approach to the medical practice as she is all about increasing the body’s natural ability to heal itself over vast quantities of useless medications to “band-aid” a problem. This is the movement of Maximized Living, striving to change the way people view and manage their health through the delivery of 5 essentials of health. You can check out all the details on her website linked above.
While I am not able to start my adjustments until I get medical insurance, she and her staff at Bold City have earned my trust when I can. That’s a hard thing to do for any type of doctors office. I have always felt poked and prodded and felt like a number more than a patient in a lot of medical offices I have been to. Kudos to you Dr. Erin!
Here’s to finally figuring out what has been causing the terrible headaches and back aches I’ve been having for years. Now that I have seen just how fucked up my spine really is, now it’s time to start fixing it and to start the healing process and to actually be healthy for once in my life!
My eyes have been open!
As some of you might know, I have been an avid fan of role-playing games for most of my life (RIFTS, Robotech, Dungeons & Dragons, etc…). I was sitting here earlier, contemplating the next course of action in my life and I found myself comparing it to a quest in a RPG. The kind of quest where the characters strive to overcome overwhelming odds and challenges just to gain the experience to achieve the next character level.
Often experiences in RPGs and MMORPG video games are just a character grinding and grinding just to get that almighty experience point or XP. Real life is just the same. We grind and grind until we achieve a level of professionalism and proficiency that we excel in. However, what is often forgotten in many RPGs is that we are there to have fun. The fun is the reason we play these games. For the thrill of the ‘game’.
This is where the logic of the ‘quest’ began to falter for me when comparing it to real life. How many people honestly go out each day and do their jobs, grinding and grinding away becasue they enjoy it? Not many I reckon. Most people do it for survival and the survival of those they love. So at what point did we sacrifice doping what we love to do what we were forced into based on survival? Where is the fun in that?
Or is is THAT what the quest is all about. To finally find fun in life and to end your days enjoying and taking pride in what your doing? To know that the legacy your leaving behind is worthy of your descendants down the line. That your remembered and people don’t have to lie at your funeral (My girlfriend told me she saw that on a billboard on the highway). Pretty potent stuff if you ask me.
And while to find that happiness and enjoyment of life is always and endless quest for everyone, it should also be one that EVERYONE participate in, not just a select few.
I cannot even begin to explain how I feel playing with my kids. it’s like being high without drugs. It’s the best feeling in the world!
well people, it’s now 2014 and I’m on here yet again. What is that twice in 3 days. damn that’s a record I think. LOL
Anywho, just wanted to let you all know I’m alive and I’m gonna make a huge effort to post on this thing as much as possible from now on. Here’s to writing…
Anyway, if you want to check out my Facebook (or your already coming here from Facebook) it’s WWW.Facebook.com/Tyranneix.
Here is to a wonderful 2014. Cheers!
So 2013 is coming a close and I have been doing a lot of reflecting recently on this past year.
For those who don’t know, I’m getting a divorce. While not a mutual split (I left), it has turned out for the better. She has moved on and so have I. I’m still working on a few possibilities on employment as well as school in the future as well. I need to get my head out of my ass and start to join the world for my kids and for myself. I have been way too selfish as of late and I have made some choices that, while they were hard, it was a step forward in a direction I needed to be in to better myself and my kids lives.
Just a few things…
To my ex, I wish you the best. I was not the man I needed to be in a time when you needed me to be it. For that I’m sorry. Take care of yourself and I’m glad your finally happy.
To my kids, I love you very much. I know it’s going to be rough on you in the future. I only hope that one day you can understand and forgive me.
To my friends, I’m finally coming out of my shell. Everyone needs time and I have had mine. I did not want to put you all in a difficult choice of choosing between her and I. So I stepped away and hoped that you helped the person who I felt needed you the most. Thank you for that. I hope we can can pick up where we left off. If not I do understand.
To my family, I love you all so much and while the transition of this separation and impending divorce has been tough on all parties, I want to thank you for your continued support of everyone involved. Especially my kids.
To my girlfriend, Thank you. We started this during a rough time and you have been a great friend during this last couple of months.
And finally, to myself. Stop being an ass. Time to step up and get on with your life. Your kids need you and I need you.
Love you all. Here is to a fantastic 2014 and to life, love and happiness.
So here we are a week from the end of the world.. or like I like to call it, Friday December 21st, 2012.. the end of the Mayan calendar. Should be very interesting to see how these crazy people are gonna handle things.. I can see a lot of idiocy in the next week or so..,
Should be a feeding frenzy for the Media Zombies. The tragedy in Newtown, CT is a perfect example of that. Overshadowing the victims with profiles of the shooter (and yes I know his name, I’m just not gonna say it..). The victims are the real story. Remembering them should be our main priority in the media. All the Media Zombie frenzy is gonna do is blow shit way out of proportions and cause a knee-jerk reaction in our government. And look, it’s already happening.
Way to go you Media Zombie Fucktards! Way to set off the End of The World…
Oh and I’ll be sure to rub it in your faces on Saturday morning I was right. And if I wasn’t, well none of us will be here to gloat and tell me I was wrong anyway, so I win either way..
Oh and of course, have a safe and happy holidays!
WOW! Man this year sure has flown by.
Just a few things..
First My daughter, Ripley Rose, was born on April 6th, 2012. I forgot to post on this earlier so for that I’m sorry. She has indeed grown like a weed and already has a smile that will melt your heart!
I’m finally employed.. YEAH! Been here at Web.com since May 14th, 2012. I love it here and it’s a great company to work for.
Summer has been tough this year, especially with our van dying and money being as tight as it has been.
I finally see a brightness at the end of this damn dark tunnel of summer though. Crossing my fingers.
I have some other stuff that I’m gonna be posting on in the near future. Keep checking back for that!
Well it’s now officially 2012.
Honestly I have no clue what to write about, so I’m just gonna bid you all a Happy New Year and I hope your goals and resolutions come true in 2012.
More to come later!
What is with our natural instinct to know ourselves? Why does it matter how much we know about the lives we have lived, to learn about the past that we don’t know, to find all the missing pieces that has never been told to us? Why does it hurt so much to not know about details that could possibly do more harm than good? People say some things are better left untold. Whose right is it to make those choices for someone else when the very mystery of not knowing could be just as painful as knowing?
Perhaps one day the truth will be told. That’s all anyone deserves.
Well think I’ve finally made up my mind on what direction I want my life to go in. I’ve determined that I want to continue my education and I’ve selected a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration (BBA) as my educational goal. I figured I’ve got over 20 years of Customer Service experience why not get an education that compliments and enhances that experience. Of course there are a lot of factors to get this done, but now that I’ve decided that, at least I now have a direction to go in!
I’ve spent the better part of today researching school accreditation, BBA specialty programs and of course getting started by filling out my FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form for Federal Financial Aid. It’s a lot to take in and I’m kinda feeling overloaded right now, but it’s a good feeling. I feel like I finally have a direction and course in my life again and I needed that. Badly!
Now I just need to find the right school that will fit my criteria. I talked to my first online school today, South University located in Savannah, Georgia. Of course the program is all online so that will work. I’m gonna check out Florida State College of Jacksonville next week when their campuses are open again as well and see what they have to offer.
I think that’s enough for now. I’ll keep you all posted on my progress when I know more!
