Cheers to karma for making life a little bit more entertaining.

I would like summer to come soon, please. Why? Because I want my life back. Sleep would be nice, too.

Hope you are all having a lovely week.

P.S. Should I be concerned if I cat's snoring sounds like a mini machine gun?

For The Record

If I am following a blogger who has failed to post within a few months or so, I'm deleting you off my follower's list. Lo siento. No hard feelings. But that's just the way life goes.

Listen More, Talk Less

Everybody loves doctors. ;) <--- inside joke of the day

I think that it would be incredibly entertaining to become a psychiatrist. Listening to others, analyzing situations, and giving advice. The world needs more people who are willing to stop worrying about their own issues and instead channel their energy to being of assistance to those in more need. I cannot quite put my finger on where this quote came from, but there is clearly a reason why humans were given two ears and one mouth. Listen more. Talk less.

It's a pretty accurate statement that the majority of the world believe that the terms 'listen' and 'hear' can be used interchangeably. If you are like me(myself?) and disagree with this idea, then cheers for you. Hearing is simply recognizing sounds that form words. However, listening is more of an art form in which you take these words and piece them together to create ideas. Listening is like learning, for you have to direct your concentration to truly comprehending what the speaker is saying and relating to it/sympathizing with him or her/whatevering.

Generally, conversations occur in two-way directions. One person speaks, the other listens. Similar to the partner A and partner B class activities my Espanol class does. Not that this random snippet is of any relevance to our discussion. Yes, this is a discussion. If you comment, that is. Because conversations occur in two-way directions, remember? But then again, I digress.

The point I am trying to make is that when you listen to what another person has to say, it is almost automatic to instantly start formulating a response in your head. Factors to consider include: Will I sound stupid? Will I regret it afterwards? Along with other inquires in regards to the "hearer". On the other hand(or ear in this case, a little bodily hilarity for you there), the "listener" would respectively be thinking 'what can I respond with that will make this person feel as if what they said was worth sharing?'. Or at least, that is how it should go down in my opinion.

Now that this has all been said and done, my proposal is that everyone who reads this(even you little bashful ones that don't bother leaving comments) should try being a "listener" as opposed to a "hearer" for the next week or so. Not that difficult, right? That's what you'd think. But if you decide to take me up on my challenge, then keep in mind what kind of respect and response you would appreciate when having a two-way conversation with someone. What will make the speaker feel as if what they said was worth sharing?

So there you have it. Random babbles of wisdom for today. Thank goodness it is Friday, and I wish the very best to everyone for the next two days!

Friends Forever

Henry certainly has grown close to Pooh Bear. Wouldn't you agree?
Anyways, I realized that the reason I don't like posting is because I never receive comments anymore. And the reason I never receive comments anymore is because I have stopped posting. Result: a neverending loop of horrible blogger confusion. Help me out of my rut by commenting please :)

Huzzah! Finally! I have internet access other than on an itouch! Blogging on an actual keyboard feels foreign and weird. I'll have to get used to that again. Mwah ha ha. But anyways, yes, I saved up enough of my own money to buy a laptop. Appropriately enough, on Valentine's Day or S.A.D.(for those clueless, singles awareness day). That would be the reason for naming him Cupid <3

For the record, I am not interested in the hype of crazy expensive notebooks, so I purchased a simple acer laptop on sale. Inexpensive, works nicely, and 4.4 out of 5 user reviews. Sounds good to me. Maybe I will actually enjoy being more interactive on here. Doubt it, but you never know.

I Guess I'm Back?

Well, at least I've posted for the past couple of days. But then again, all I have left to say about things are in complain-form, and I doubt anyone wants to hear about that. So perhaps posts will be shorter, to spare any readers overexposure to negativity.

Also, this weekend is a four day break(gotta love presidents), and all I can think about is sleeping in. It's the only thing I want to do now, since I get so little of it.

Speaking of sleep, I should go do that right now. Blurb my life. My theory is that exhaustion effects blog posting in the way that every word that pops out is either mean, depressing, or unnecessay.

But I ramble too much. Kind of like what I did in the essay I just wrote. And off I go...

I Wish

For one stress-free and happy day. Psh yeah right. That'd be like going to school and having no homework. But the again, I don't want to end up asking stupid questions like this:

I hate

The world. Just in general. But it's been that way for quite a while now, so it's not like posting about makes too much of a difference. But at least I get to sleep in until seven instead of five tomorrow... Yay choir competition...
