"My life is an untied converse."

I “Accidentally” Abandoned My Blog… But, I’m Back!

WHOOPS. My bad y’all. See… what had happened was…..

Life happened. Then, life kept happening. And all of the sudden it was four months without one post on my newly-formed space for talking and stuff. (A.K.A. This Blog) And I figured, well, no one’s gonna read what I have to say anyway, right? So why speak? Well, my boyfriend (who happens to be real and human (probably)(WOOHOO!)), hereinafter known as “Bobby”told me that I should write because it’s therapeutic. God knows I could use every drop of therapy these days…

So now, I will write. I want to write at least once a week…about random things, about angry things, about exciting things. Really, I’ll probably write about whatever pops into my head the exact moment that I start to type. Just because I can.

Anyway, if you’ve made it this far in my post, thanks for reading. You must be a special kinda bored if you’re still here. No, seriously. Go outside. Do something meaningful. LOOK AT YOU! You rebel. Okay, it’s official. We’re friends. I love you…. wait… too soon? I meant… I love your presence on my… blog. 🙂 Still friends? Kewl.

Anyway, have a beautiful day and make it a better for someone else. I hope to see you in future internet comments. Laterz!

Now the question must be posed – What have you “accidentally” abandoned that you probably should start doing again? Tell me in the comments!



Response to Contact: “Why is the middle finger a “bad word”? hmmmmm”

Well, anonymous user, it depends on who you ask. It is the socially-accepted understanding of that gesture in the Unites States and other countries. However, the same meaning is true for a “thumbs up” in Italy. The meaning, thusly so, is formed and maintained by the culture in which the gesture was understood by a majority of the population to hold that particular interpretation. The same is really true for anything in our culture that is widely accepted, including road signs and symbols. Maybe, just maybe, you could be the one to make the middle finger a symbol of unity instead of a “bad word”. (I’m down, if you’re down… Let’s do it!) 🙂

Thanks for contacting!


Motivation from Netflix: A Lesson from Ronald Wilkerson *Spoiler Alert*

I was watching the new season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. (Please, NO SPOILERS! Also, slight SPOILER ALERT) On one of the episodes, there was a line in a song that actually made me pause the show.
 “Sometimes the only way to go is to just go on.”
All of the sudden, while I was sprawled across my bed and a bowl deep in Frosted Flakes, I had a profound revelation inspired by this lyric.
All of the time I spend stressing about my next step in life is almost wasted. Now, hear me out. I am all for planning ahead and looking towards the future. But, even if I spend the entire day thinking and planning for tomorrow, things will go exactly how they are supposed to go. And, the more I focus on tomorrow, the less I am focused on enjoying and appreciating today. (And to think, all this came from Titus Andromedon/ Ronald Wilkerson)
Here’s another thing that I’m sure NO ONE else can relate to… Sometimes the hardest feeling in the world is just another day. Another day at work or with children or with human beings or circumstances or life. It becomes exhausting to think about how many burdens we carry (without backpacks with shoulder straps). But, if you think about simply going on, it makes everything a little bit easier. Yes, there will be rough times, but they will eventually end. And the only way for a bad time to end is with a good day.
I say all of this to say that your existence today should not be entirely consumed by preparing for tomorrow. Take a moment and appreciate your today, be it up or down. Because. IT. IS. YOURS. Do what you can and remember to breathe because some things in life are just measured by the way we handle its turbulence. And, as India Arie beautifully sang, “The only thing constant in the world iiissss CHANGE.”
So, keep goin’ hunny. Even if that just means getting out of bed once more. Better days are ahead. And so are new Netflix shows and the world needs people to watch new Netflix shows.
Now the question must be posed – what is your motivation to keep going? And also, what should I watch next on Netflix?

Who is the “untiedconverser”?

I am she. Well, she is me. Here’s the story.

My Earth-dwelling for the past 23 years has been one clumsy fall after another (many literal and some figurative), which quickly became the story of my life. One day at work (because I do things for money during the day like most adult-like people), my coworker noted that my shoe was untied. Historically speaking, I have worn Converse/Chuck Taylors at least four times a week for the past six years of my life and at least one of my shoes is almost always untied. No matter how many double triple crisscross ties I make, one of the shoes likely falls victim to being dragged on the ground mercilessly by my pacing feet and lazy ways. To his pointedly obvious remark, I replied, “My life is an untied converse.”

Additionally, as a self-proclaimed and test-proven introvert, I have a love of all debate-worthy conversations. Make no mistake, however! I am firmly against the concept of small talk. (Seriously lady, we both know how hot it is. Do we HAVE to talk about it on this five-floor elevator ride? -_-) I am firmly against unnecessary conversations and talking for the sake of erasing silence. (Seriously Serious – DON’T CALL ME IF YOU CAN TEXT ME – I PROBABLY WON’T ANSWER) Nevertheless, the juices that flow from deep conversations (stop being nasty) are a substantial part of my sustenance and they keep my heart beating rhythmically.

Thusly so, I am the untiedconverser. (Ain’t I clever?) I will write about any and all feelings, thoughts, injustices, and social trends that cross my mind. I will do my best to entertain you and make you think in the same sentence.

Now the question must be posed – who are you?
