March 26, 2016 "People Treat Me Different"


Have you ever watched Lilo and Stitch?

There is this one scene.  Lilo and Nani(Lilo's older sister) just argue and Nani comes in and tries to see if she's okay.  Nani is holding Lilo on the bed and Lilo tells her she hit and bit Myrtle(a mean peer who always bullies Lilo).  Right as Nani is about to tell her she shouldn't do that Lilo chimes in and says, "People treat me different."

This part in the movie I always remembered.  I think this part right here I don't see Lilo I see myself.  People treat me different.  I wonder if everyone feels this way.  Maybe we all have that sense of not fitting in and thinking maybe people treat us different or if maybe there is this group of people like me that just don't quit fit in with everyone else.  That we're just a little bit different and people can't help but to notice it.

I missed the sunrise this morning but I did get to see my last one as 24 yesterday.  I missed this sunset yet yesterday but maybe that's okay.  Maybe a sunrise yesterday and a sunset today is better.  It is kinda like a what was getting one last day and setting a new what is today.

I think the more I realize that, "People treat me different," the more happy I am with myself.  Because people who don't get treated different don't get a friend alien from outer space and get to ride in rocket ships do they?

As for being 25, I can't say I feel any older or any different.  I just feel the need to live.  I was to climb mountains, swim oceans, maybe write a story, forgive and love.  No sky diving though, I think I can live with myself if I never sky dive.

Late Night March 24, 2016

Hello Everyone,

It is 10;59 p.m.  I am going to say it is 11 because by the time I am finished typing this sentence it probably will be.  Today is one of the last days I am going to be 24.  Probably not a big deal to most of you guys but to me it is.  People become older every second of everyday so it doesn't seem like a big deal.  However, the person who is turning older it is a big deal to them.  Happy birthday to any of you guys out there I missed telling by the way.  You're birthday is important to me.  Without it I would have never met you and I am positive that I am very glad to have met you.

That being said on March 26 I will be turning 25.  It seems like such a small number.  It is a quarter of a century though and since many don't century I do intend to take care of my young life.  I have taken the time to reflect on what in life I have done, all then many things I have enjoyed and if there were any regrets.  Every year I find myself creating this list of things to accomplish and I seem to accomplish so much, some of the list and somethings I would have never dreamed I could do, but every year I also find myself thinking about what I haven't accomplished and how much more there is I want to do.

Thinking is hard sometimes.  You have to find this healthy balance of concentrating of what is going on in the moment so you don't miss, what you want to accomplish can you can begin to accomplish and not over obsessing with things you want and haven't done and figuring out what you can live with if it never happens.  Most people  I have found give up.  They just lay in bed and day dream about what they can and want to do but never have the courage to actually take a chance.  Which is fine if you do it because you are happy and content with your life but so many people are not happy and they use that for an excuse to not do what they want because it is hard.  Playing coulda shoulda woulda ones life seems so dreadful and unbearable.

Right now I think I am at this point of being content.  I am happy with what I have accomplished and in the moment of my life I am in.  Though there is still plenty I want to do I think I can happily say I am happy with my life.  I have managed to meet so many amazing people and have done so many amazing things and am not even 25 yet.  Just this year (since New Years 2016) I was making out a list of things I have done and came up with this;

1)I learned useful skills in knitting (How to do simple decreases, right twist, slip stitch, and left twist. 2) Learned how to sew knitting blocks together into a bigger piece.
3) Made my fist knitted hand towel
4) Finished complete seasons 1-8 of Doctor Who (and managed to get highly addicted.  Really need to watch Season 9.)
5) Watched Complete Torchwood Series (was sad it was put off air before finishing up.)
6) Bought my first Playboy magazine
7) Won a Radio Contest
8) Have started learning Ukulele
9) Begin learning guitar and played through first song.
10) Learned to read tabs (guitar)
11) Made my third knitted wash cloth
12) Paid off my firs shed

And many little things that mean a lot to me and have plans on accomplishing so much more this next year.  I just want to keep adding to my list and make it huge by the end of the year.  That being said I think it is way past my bedtime.  Want to get up and see my last Sunrise of 24 tomorrow and wouldn't dream of missing tomorrow's sunset either.
