Are People Taken Seriously?

I’ve always believed that I’m not taken too seriously because I’m young. Now I’m starting to question whether people are taken seriously at all.

Over the course of my relatively short life, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some extremely smart and talented people who are considered professionals in their field of work. Yet even they aren’t listened to when it comes to subjects that they are knowledgeable of. I mean, seriously, how many knowledgeable professionals do we choose to ignore on a daily basis? My guess is hundreds.

In light of this fact, I am no longer concerned about people’s perception of my thoughts or opinions. Instead, I will strive to perfect my beliefs based on my own judgment.

I’m Breaking Up With Instant Coffee

Coffee is amazing. Especially when it’s just a couple of feet from you when you wake up. That’s why I decided to set up a Keurig coffee machine next to my bed, because, why the heck not?

I’ve always been an instant coffee fan, myself (Maxwell House coffee from Dollar General, in case you were wondering). Now my palate will have to accept the fact that instant coffee isn’t the head-dog anymore. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to deal with – *drinks a sip of coffee* – it.

Dear Generation Z: You Don’t Have a Right to Complain.

Sadly, almost everyone in my generation is attempting to abnegate personal responsibly for their own actions. Let’s hope this revolution of irresponsibility dies aborning, as it most likely will and should.

We can’t keep blaming the horrible problems of the present on the past – and that’s basically what my generation is doing now. As it says Mathew 8:22, “Let the dead bury their own dead.” Live in the present; leave the past in the past. After all, these are good times.

You can’t honestly believe that we, as a society, are living worse now than we once were. Crime is down, technology is advancing, and it’s getting harder and harder to be bored since we now have more entertainment than we know what to do with. If you think about it, it’s almost disgusting how comfortable we’ve become.

If you are complaining right now, you better be complaining about climate change or too much intervention by the state. Other than that, life is pretty dog-gone good.

So I Recently Finished Reading A James Bond Book

Dude, that guy was sexist. With that being said, it’s my new favorite fictional book. It was so freaking good.

Sometimes it’s just nice to hear about a man’s ideal man, you know? It seems that society is really lacking in the masculine department. Men seem to be neutered, forgetting that they have a specific role to play in society: the dominant, physically-aggressive male. Anyways, back to the subject of James Bond.

James Bond: now there’s a guy I wouldn’t mind emulating. Casinos, high-steak bets – there’s literally nothing about Casino Royale that I didn’t like. Even the ending, as dark as it was, was inspiring. It shows how men are supposed to act in tough situations and deal with tragedy.

Frankly speaking, the movies didn’t do the book justice. The book was far more bloody, making it far more entertaining as well.

“Class” is something that’s missing from our society too; it’s not like it used to be. These days, “class” would be defined by… well, I’m not quite sure what’s considered classy these days, but I’m sure it’s not half as fancy as tuxedos and 1930s sports cars.

With all of this being said, this book has definitely given me a wonderful taste of fiction, as I’m not much of a fiction reader. It’s good to see that there are books out there that are so interesting. It gives me hope that not all books were as boring as Philosophy 101 (it’s not for the light-hearted).

Time For a Procrastination Intervention

Procrastination is one of the greatest threats to productivity; It creeps up on you and before you know it, you’re not as productive as you once were. At least, that’s what happened with me recently (Netflix is a *this content has been removed by the people’s republic of China*).

Anyways, I seriously need to start being productive again. Meaning, of course, that I need to start studying new interesting subjects and read awesome new books (Boo-hoo). But can I resist the evil temptation of Call of Duty and Netflix? Only time will tell.
