I need to work harder

Standard

My work ethic has dropped since school has ended. I’ve become lazy and unresponsive. This is my lazinesses coming back to bite me. There are times where I watch youtube videos for around 4 hours straight and complete nothing.

THATS RIDICULOUS!

In those 4 hours I could’ve:

Learned a new programming language, developed an instrumental beat for a song, wrote a blog post about anything, worked on a writing, and a multitude of other things instead of just watching youtube videos.

So here I am to began again, and follow a goal of productivity and working hard.

More blog posts, info, and content coming.

I promise

10 Things getting a tattoo taught me

Standard

(TL;DR: DO IT)

This past month I got a tattoo. I have always wanted to experience this form of art but I especially didn’t want to regret it. The tattoo I got is located on my upper arm, and it says, “XII. VII.” with the words “The Start” under it. this is a homage to my great-grandmother and her late husband. December 7th was the day their 65 year marriage started, and this lasted through a World War, multiple changes in the social climate of the world, and their changing selves. IMG_3318Their love remained constant until the day my great-grandfather passed away, and that is always something I have adored.

 

 

so long story short here are a few things getting a tattoo taught me or showed me (if you’re debating it):

  1. Do it.
  2. Make sure you can live with it
  3. it doesn’t hurt as bad as you would think
  4. be smart and do your research (I had a guy offer to give me a tattoo for $20 in his shed. bad idea)
  5. Most people are accepting of tattoo. (My dad told me he would do disown me. He didn’t)
  6. More people have tattoos than you would think.
  7. If you’re worried about being professional, get it in a well hidden spot. (shoulder, leg, back, chest)
  8. Go to a good artist, plz. I don’t care if your friends cousin has a shop and will give you a good deal, if they aren’t good, don’t give them your money. You get what you pay for.
  9. You honestly feel instantly more badass. (Especially when you see yourself in the mirror, or is that just me?)
  10. Again DO IT.

 

Full Time Student

Standard

Being a student is a full time job.

The requirements to perform this job include:

  • A desire to better yourself, while simultaneously hating yourself.
  • A need for the ability to carry up to 50+ pounds of stress with the added carriage of responsibilities.
  • A sophisticated method to wake up for 8am classes and appointments, and not going to bed until 2am the night before due to an excessive workload.
  • Occasionally perform offsite activities for compensation, otherwise known as a “job”
    • A “job” can include many criteria such a store clerk, a restaurant server, an assistant of some sort, etc.
    • Many jobs require 20+ hours of work a week, and for our position of student, these must be tightly fit into your already full time employment.
  • The ability to schedule small amounts of personal time to eat, sleep, and pray for your GPA.
  • Attend extracurricular activities and join extracurricular groups to build your resume and make yourself more desirable to future employers.
  • Attend social events to make networking connections and learn social skills.
  • A bank account with copious amounts of money is a necessity for employment, or the ability to fill out a loan application will suffice for this requirement.

 

If you believe you would like to apply for this position, please send resume, ACT or SAT score, your first born child, and bank account number to admissions@university.edu. We look forward to application and will get back to you shortly with your first tuition payment and at the amount of your books.

 

Thank you,

So I got a blemish…

Standard

So I met a girl.

And we were both drunk and some romantic involvement followed.

and now I’m left with multiple read blotches on my neck, that I have to cover with makeup (I’ve never used makeup).

and she won’t respond to me at all, because, jokes on me, she has a boyfriend.

My luck, right?

so anyway, little life update over.

Until next time,

AC

 

Everyone left me

Aside

All my roommates left.

Our lease went out and they were gonna without a word. So now I’m just here.

I’m alone, like literally. My friend group was built around my roommates and now no one is here.

Maybe this blog will give me an outlet for the upcoming weeks, but it might be depressing.

Stay with me here, please.

Lonely Valentine’s Day? that’s ok.

Standard

The month of February is almost halfway over.

The Grammy’s are past and Chance The Rapper won.

It is now February 14, and today is a special day of love and caring. So if you’re alone today, don’t be done in the dumps, please.

Because you aren’t alone. Think of your friends, family, and associates. They all appreciate you, your presence, and your ideas. I know this is hard sometimes to believe when you think you are put second to someone or something else in a loved ones life. But you are anted and needed. Don’t forget that.

I recently went through a break up at this time last week. The girl I was with was a great girl and we were only together for about a month, so not very long. I can be mature enough to say, I did not give that relationship my all until it was gone. I acted like a child and neglected the emotions of this girl that I truly cared about but it is now over and her feelings are gone. This is a hard thing to overcome, but I realize she is happier now than when she was dealing with childish and neglecting me.

Why am I like this? Well lets go back some.

My first serious relationship, like love and goals and plans and all that stuff, started the beginning of my senior year in high school. It ended a year later when college hit. I was ok with it. I realized it would happen sooner or later, but it hurt nonetheless. I’m broken and I have been for sometime. I’m getting closer everyday to fixing myself but at this point in time, I’m damaged and that’s ok.

I say all this as I wait for the V-Day candy to go on sale so I can please my self with cheaper candy. (I’m currently finishing this at 1:52am on February 15th, because I procrastinated, but it still applies! I need sleep)funny-love-images-with-jokes

So today, please, hold your loved one tight, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Until next time,

with love and candies,

Allen Childers
