                           *I took this photo of a sunset!*

A lot of the time, years just go by without really anyone noticing. I guess this is why everyone always says ‘Wow, it’s December already!’ or the frequent ‘You son of a gun Winchesterz, you stole my year waiting for your next blog post!’**

It’s crazy how fast time flies, especially when you’ve already got a routine set out. Wake up in the morning, go to work, go to the gym, sleep, eat in between sometime, somewhere. I’m always encouraging people to break the routine, and to do things they haven’t done, or to simply just stop at the end of the day for a good half hour and just…be. I normally do this; I am lucky enough to live in a place where the sun sets at around 7:30 pm, lucky enough to work at a place literally a stone’s throw from the beach, so even if I finish work at 6, I still have enough time to enjoy the sun setting over the glorious Indian Ocean. I’m starting to see more and more people doing the same, and I can tell you right now, in that span of half hour to an hour of watching the sun set, everyone who is watching in that moment has never felt more serene in their entire life. It’s as if all the troubles in the world are gone, a weight’s off your shoulders, and it’s just you (and well I guess the others who are also in your vicinity). It’s important to have this moment, as with the way the world is going, everyone’s beginning to forget how to breathe.

Wow-wee, didn’t mean to get all zen on you guys like that, but what comes to mind, goes onto paper. Or well, web post. If you’d like, please, read on. If not, happy holidays, stay safe and I’ll be seeing you on the side of 2015!

Wishes

tumblr_n057sjuOEJ1qkv5xlo1_500

If you’ve ever been a child, you’ve made a wish. Whether it be upon a shooting star, a wishpuff (I don’t know what they’re actually called, I just call them wishpuffs…they’re the little plant / weed that you blow on and all the little things fly off of it), blowing out birthday candles, finding an eyelash and blowing on it or 11:11, you know for a fact that you’ve made a wish. Come to think of it, a lot of wish-making involves blowing on something. I wonder why that is, hm. Oh shush, you naughty bunch, I know exactly where your minds went. So back on topic, the one cardinal rule to follow in order for your wishes to come true is to never reveal the exact details of what you wished for to anybody. Whoever came up with this is extremely cunning; now the only person who will ever know if their wish came true is the person who made the wish. There can be no bystanders or witnesses to such an event, simply because the wish-maker has practically been sworn to secrecy. The real questions I have for you guys are: do you believe in wishes? Have you actually ever made one and stuck to one? How’s that worked out for you?

Do tell me, because I’m pretty sure I’ve rarely ever made wishes, and the one time I made a wish with all my heart, it came true. Miracle, right?

Passage Of Time

How fitting that I should write about the passage of time on my birthday. I’m 23 this year. Damn, I’m moving on up in life.

I know you’re all going to agree when I say that time itself is a cruel female dog. Yeah, I have to keep the language PG-13, you never know what kids are up to nowadays. They could be being awesome and reading my PG-13 blog, or just being lame and doing anything else on the computer. Anyway, the passage of time has to be one of the worst things about living. Like seriously. When you’re enjoying yourself, time flies. When you’re miserable, it crawls. How unfair is that? Time is one of the few things in life that actually has the power to change anything and everything, depending on how you use it. It can affect your life in such a way that would make you rethink everything; from the way you’ve lived to how and where you are right now. It’s frightening.

Past, Present and Future

Have you guys seen “The Lovely Bones”? I actually saw the film before reading the book, mainly because everyone thought the film was not so great and raved about the book. This is basically the truth. I felt that the film itself dragged on a bit too long, and while it was visually stunning and immersive, it just didn’t pack as much punch or captivate me as much as the book did. The thing I liked about the film though, was that there was a bit of a redemptive factor at the end. The book didn’t have this, from memory. But then again, I read the book a very long time ago and I could just be misremembering and failing to recall certain details.

Anyway, this post is not supposed to be about “The Lovely Bones”, I just had to talk about it a little seeing as I’m borrowing a quote from there. It’s actually 1:48 AM at the time of me writing this, and as per usual I can’t sleep. I keep thinking about the future. Well, mostly my past too, and what I could’ve done differently and where I would be right now had I done certain things a particular way. It’s rough, thinking about this late in the night time. If you ever find yourself doing this, don’t pay attention to it. You are your own worst enemy at these hours.
