What are you Thankful For?

First things first Happy Thanksgiving friends and family! This has been one event filled year for us, and not all positive. But in the spirit of the Holiday I am thankful. I am still alive and able to make changes to my life, and I still have a family that loves me. So no matter how bad some of the events of this year have been I’m thankful.

I’m thankful for my gorgeous wife Devin, that I was lucky/blessed enough to marry this year on March 8th. This gorgeous woman has given me unconditional love, devotion, loyalty, and laughs once March 11, 2010 without fail. Never once has she let me down or gave me cause for concern. I love you booba!

Due to an unexpected death in the family we’ll be apart for the Holiday. I was given the task of writing to pass the time when I wasn’t working. I’m a writer/blogger/poet so usually if I have a spare moment words flow out of me for no reason whatsoever. But this week without her I’ve only been able to write 2 pages of my new fiction drama. Devin is my muse, and without her being near I lost my ability to focus on the task at hand. Words usually blend together in my mind and form this perfect mixture of poetry or fiction that I place on paper or on a word document with relative ease and speed. This week I’ve been at a snail’s pace. I’m lucky to have such am inspirational muse in my life to push me towards greatness. Thank you Devin!

With the world going to war with itself, kids being killed, and people committing more crimes than ever people don’t seem to be thankful for much anymore. The media has skipped being thankful altogether and shifted the calender to show only Halloween, Black Friday, and Christmas. The only reason for that is consumerism and greed in my opinion. It’s as if the world prefers we forget the togetherness, joy, and love we’re supposed to feel for each other and be thankful for.

I’m thankful for my loving family, amazing wife, and the life given to me. What are you Thankful for?

I’m thankful that it’s October

It’s finally October! That means fall has been in effect for a while, Football and Basketball fans alike jump for joy, and Libras run rampant the first half and hand it over to Scorpios later. But more importantly for me and a few choice people in my family it’s my Birthday Month! I’ll be turning 26 this month on the 14th so I figured I’d share what I’m thankful for, 14 times over.

1. My Wife
Without here I’d have no purpose and definitely no will to write

2. My Family
The group of special people who have helped mold me into the man I am today. This includes both the people who do share my Genetic code and some who don’t.

3. My Job
My job as a veterinary. Technician allows me to enjoy a career in a field I’ve been passionate about my whole life. Work for a doctor that has taught me so much that I should’ve paid her for classes, and I have the world’s best coworkers so suck it if you disagree.

4. Cheesecake
Need I say more. Its cheesecake.

5. Stand up Comedy
A laugh could change your entire mood. Laughter is what I crave daily and great comics bring it to you with ease. Some if my favorites are: Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, Gabriel Iglesias, Dat Phan, Kevin Hart, Katt Williams, Paul Mooney, and Dane Cook. What about you?

6. Morgan Freeman’s Awesomeness
This dude is immortal, a great actor, good as any role from Lego wizard to God himself. Lastly he is the voiceover king. I wish he was the voice for my answering machine.

7. Chinese Food (American Style)
I’ve yet to taste true Chinese Food, but the American version is a love of mine. Chicken wings and shrimp fried rice could fuel my life

8. Cat Videos On The Internet
I could watch cats make stupid noise, get scared, fight, or be zany all day long. Cats are hilarious… or possibly the most fearless, ferocious, demonic creature on earth if pushed.

9. Books
They are the true gateway drug. Just find the right one and you are taken on a high to another land that leaves you craving more. Then you seek more and more until you end up losing time and gaining a new love for something transient harmful at all. At least that’s how I feel about them. My favorite Genres to read are fantasy fiction, Christian fiction, thrillers, and comedy books.

10. Writing
Number 9 led to this one as I get older. I wanted to create one of those wondrous books I loved so much. But not just novels I write poetry as well. Each poem or story I feel is another gateway to my own soul that I choose to share with the world around me in hopes that you enjoy it.

11. Being a Libra
Being a Libra is awesome. Were creative, helpful, loving, caring, free spirits, and pretty much the best sign out there. Yes I’m biased, you are supposed to be. Our element is the air so like the air we can’t be restricted and I dint advise you to try. You will fail. Some other famous Libras include Usher Raymond, Marshall “Eminem” Mathers, Will Smith, and Hugh Jackman. That’s right detective Mike Lowry and Wolverine are Libras.

12. The Llama
Both the animal and the word Llama are hilarious to me. There is no real reason for it. I have always laughed at it. I’m weird I know

13. Video Games
I’ve been an avid gamer my entire life. It’s always been a stress reliever for me. I love platformers, JPEGs, and various fighting games. MY all time favorite/most played is probably the Super Smash Bros series with the “Tales Of” Series by Namco being a close second.

14. Netflix
This modern day marvel has made me forget what cable even is. Plus it’s only 8 bucks. All my favorites from my childhood and now are on here. It draws me in and I get lost In awesomeness. Gotta live it.

What are you thankful for?
