While Doing Nothing At My Desk

  • I just saw a photo of Her on Facebook this morning. Not even going to front, she looks good. Very good. I was struck speechless when I saw her photo. Her and I are not even on speaking terms. She would not even piss on fire to put me out. Given the opportunity, she would slit my throat in my sleep. But she still looked fly nonetheless

  • This new person who works in my office walks like a model. When she walked down the hall,the first thing I thought was "Project Runway". Her posture is very model-esque.

  • I need to do these damn taxes. I keep putting it off but they need to get done. I need some cash

  • I have switched my bank account from Bank of America to a credit union. NO MORE FEES!

  • I am considering doing a side business for financial management. For the past year I have been doing tons of research about it. I find financial management interesting even though I hate math. I may do it. I think I should ask around and see.

Life's Perspective

I got into an argument on last Wednesday with a program manager from my AmeriCorps/Public Allies program.

She told me that she felt as if I did not care about the program or the people in it. This statement came from the fact on my recent evaluation, my AmeriCorps group mates did not evaluate me as high as my actual job supervisor.So went into this thing with she said I am dismissive, etc etc. Supposedly, my attitude stinks, I am rude and off-putting, I do not do work.

So I summoned my inner asshole and told her how I truly feel. I am not emotionally attached to my career. My self-worth is not tied to my career. Whether or not I am a good person is not dictated by how well I do my job. Thus, when my fellow AmeriCorps people worry about whether people's opinion of them change due to the success of the project, I do not panic. I do not worry.

That may seem transcendent for people. It may sound like I do not care. But I know when I meet my Maker, if there is a Maker, they will not judge me by how well I do not my job. There are other criteria that will
determine. Does this mean I do not want a great career? No. But what it means is that I will never put my career over how I treat and love my friends, family, and other people. I will never let career moves dictate whether I should be kind or courteous. I will never let career aspirations get in the way of spending time with the people I love the most. Thats all.

Perspective is what it is all about.

The Homosexual Question

My mom and I have been debating homosexuality recently. Recently, she became more religious. She used to have gay friends and never commented on their lifestyle.Now all of a sudden, homosexuality is a sin. "Those people" are sinners, evil, despicable or any other adjective that puts homosexuals in some sort of weirdo category.

But guess what? GASP! All that homosexuality is is a natural variance in human sexual behavior. Every single human culture/society that has ever existed in the 250,000 year lifespan of the homo sapiens has had homosexuals. It is plain and simple. Homosexuals are not weirdos. They are not sinful. Shit, most cultures don't even have the concept of sin. All homosexuality is is a natural variation in human sexual behavior. That is it.

My study of anthropology and archaeology has shown me this. Homosexuals in many cultures became shamans, religious/medical people in their society. Native Americans called them twin-spirits. Societies in Africa and Australia had homosexual members. I am pretty sure there may have even been gay Neandertals.
It comes down to this. Homosexuality is just another part of human nature. Just because you do not practice it doesn't mean it is evil...
