Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 7 – Going Nowhere in Particular

“Life puts you anywhere.” Do you ever feel like you are moving, pursuing, living without any initial direction? Does your future, as uncertain as it seems, give you discomfort? Think about it, but then take time to think about the fact that you are still active. You are moving, pursuing, living, though you may be … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 7 – Going Nowhere in Particular

Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 6 – All in Good Company

“Life is enjoyable with others around.” The introvert speaks. Of course no one wants to be lonely, we want to feel some sort of acknowledgement or acceptance. A venture, a hike, a party; such is better when spent with good company. We do, however, want to be alone sometimes. Sometimes our deepest, most sincere thoughts … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 6 – All in Good Company

Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 4 – Visualize New Perspectives

"Life reoccurs in new, reciprocal intervals." I have recently been caught up in what it means to be creative. I defined creativity in a way where I had attributed levels of visual taste. This means a first impression was always necessary and contributed a lot to whether or not subsequent pieces of work would taste just … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 4 – Visualize New Perspectives

Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 3 – Resisting Reality

“Life is easily misunderstood.” Sometimes the good feelings aren’t always the ones you need, but they are definitely what you want. It’s too hard to resist. Whether it’s friends, family, or lovers, you feel obliged to give them what you’ve got. But often “what you’ve got” is a large list of personal problems, goals, and … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 3 – Resisting Reality

Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 2 – Individual Interpretation

“Life is entirely interpretation.” Jittery, coffee high, and dreamy... I was just asked by a good friend of mine if I’d be interested in starting a Christian philosophy blog. If anyone knows me well, they know that I love to talk about philosophical questions and thought. I could spend an entire night talking–as opposed to … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 2 – Individual Interpretation

Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 1 – Omniscient Predicament

“Life just isn’t the same.” I motioned my eyes from my clammy palm to the window. Its shades were shadowed from the grey evening. The subtle hint of leftover daylight caused me to question my use of time. There was nothing more to do with it. A window closed here, another opened beyond. Opportunity flew … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 1 – Omniscient Predicament

College Day 199 – Finding Figurative Matter

(April 12, Tuesday) My dreary, long walks to and from restaurants and classes mostly consisted of me thinking about the direction of the next week. I observed the life around me and realized that everything seemed normal to everyone else. I'm in my own world of disbelief. Summer is coming and I'm not nearly as … Continue reading College Day 199 – Finding Figurative Matter

College Day 186 – Thought Block

(March 30, Wednesday) Finally the day came when I would have one of my poems critiqued. To my surprise, I actually haven't shared it on my blog at all. However, the rhyming scheme was aabb / ccdd / eeff. That was probably the main concern (the forced rhyme) apart from the "distracting" image that I … Continue reading College Day 186 – Thought Block

It’s Difficult

Show me a story about love- ly people. True or not, everyone wants to be heard, they want to be acknowledged, yet they might call you absurd. Life is all for show- ing love. Truly, this would be an answered prayer towards those looking for acceptance, and more than cynical care. End the existence of … Continue reading It’s Difficult

College Day 183 – Behind The Scenes

(March 18, Friday) I was homeward bound at 4:30pm when the shuttle driver would pick me up. In a shuttle full of students and somewhat silent laughter, the old driver had told us his story. "These people I work with are stupid in the head. God gave a rock more intelligence." Being the first dropped … Continue reading College Day 183 – Behind The Scenes
