People hate change

Thinking about a certain topic- taste in music, led me to think about how much people hate change. There are some types of people that just take in every kind of music, new and old alike, but they are pretty scarce. Most people indulge in one or two genres of music exclusively, and reject all other genres. People stick to what they are used to, so they probably got used to a music type while growing up, and other sounds just don’t sound right to them. I know it is like that for me with rap music. Though there are some rap songs I found I enjoyed, the majority just turn me off because of the way they sound. I am used to a classic pop and classic rock sound. Now on to the more broad topic of change. People don’t only hate change, but some people can’t change. Like with habits, people get trapped. Habits are a whole other topic to tackle. But yeah, changing yourself, changing what you are used to, that is hard. It is why obesity and many other health problems today are hurting people (especially in the US), people get used to this certain kind of taste, and they don’t want that to stop. This is a difficult problem because healthy food is more expensive and unhealthy food is less expensive and more convenient to grab. It doesn’t mean it is unsolvable, but many people won’t change unless someone else intervenes or they find reason to change in themselves. If someone has family and are at risk of dying, that would be their motivation to change. That shows how hard it is for people to change, that they have to wait until they are at the verge of death before they do anything about it. Some people won’t even stop a habit if they know it will kill them, because it is just that hard to change. I remember before when I was an early teen/preteen, I realized my soda drinking was having effect on me. I used to be one of the fastest runners of my friends, but then I wasn’t. I was just consuming too much soda. Of course you can’t quit something you are used to instantly unless it disappeared, but that would just really mess with somebody. What I ended up doing was having other sugary drinks that were less harmful than the soda to stop my dependency on it. Iced tea is what I had, and then switched to apple juice/ grape juice. Then drank more water. Changing is definitely not an easy process. If I were to throw myself a bone and drink more soda, I would start craving much more. I just have to keep control. My wish isn’t to ban it from myself completely because it is something I enjoy, but just to limit it. If I didn’t find reason to change, that habit would have probably continued. Since I have fast metabolism I stayed skinny, but I was still physically unhealthy. I’m sure a change in size would have made me more motivated to get in shape, but that is just not how my body works. I at least was able to find motivation enough to change because I had a desire to be healthy. Even with my lifestyle of being on the computer and playing video games, I had the desire to change. Though this computer habit is still a problem. Damn change is hard!

Bigfoot is a woman? This is her story. Writing prompt #1

Bigfoot is a mysterious creature. At this point, the majority believe his existence is a joke. They believe anyone who thinks he is real is crazy. Everyone played right into Bigfoot’s big hands. Bigfoot is real, he is very real. He isn’t even a he, he is a she. Well she is a she, she is not he. Bigfoot equals a woman. She never told me her real name, it was obvious she still didn’t want to be identified. I’ll never forget this girl I met on that fateful camping trip. Perhaps I’ll write about the trip itself another time. For now though, I’ll focus on what the girl told me. This girl at the moment was a very pretty girl with stunning bright blue eyes that would catch anyone’s eyes, I was captivated. It of course made believing her story even harder. A girl like this walks up to me and tells me she is Bigfoot, and I’m supposed to believe her? It had to be a joke, I thought to myself. But then the more I observed, I realized she was very tall. It made her even more like a model, though. But then I look and see her big feet. But some women just happen to have big feet. Bigfoot was known for his big feet yeah, but he was more known for being a weird freakish hairy bipedal creature. I admit that I thought she was messing with me, but then I realized how serious her tone was. I couldn’t detect a lie. So I kept listening to what she had to say. This woman told me that she actually had a normal childhood, and used to be a normal sized child. She had lots of friends, her life was great. But then once the magic age of puberty hit, her life was changed forever. She grew tall and her feet got pretty big. That would have been bearable though. The unbearable part, was being as hairy as a bear. Her hair grew and grew and grew. It was everywhere, over her whole body. Her parents thought she was a freak and disowned her. She was a very beautiful girl, with very beautiful high class parents. Parents who bragged about her all the time, but then this happened. They didn’t want to face the embarrassment. Those cowards. She believes that they ended up making up some kind of story about her disappearance. She didn’t dare go and prove that wrong, because she just wanted to be away from people herself. She had no desire to be a member of society anymore. She just couldn’t. Her life would never be the same. So she fled into deep woods, where she could be at peace. But other people go to the woods, and of course she would still draw attention to herself. She couldn’t have just hid in a cave the rest of her life, she wanted to see more of the world. Bigfoot had a plan, though. She knew it was risky to draw attention to herself, but the plan was to draw attention away from her by drawing too much attention to her. Making her end up like an overused joke, so eventually people don’t want to hear from it at all. Bigfoot ended up getting the help of an outdoorsman she found in the woods. She intimidated him, and got him to take a photo of her. The photo spread, and the world was fascinated with Bigfoot. But it all just ended up seeming like a hoax. Her work was pretty much done there too, because a bunch of people ended up staging sightings, making the whole Bigfoot thing lose more credibility. So when people do end up actually seeing her, she is safe. If necessary she can shave all the hair off her body, though the reason she cant keep that up and live normally is because there is still all the hair follicles covering the whole body in places that it shouldn’t be. It grows back fast, she can’t keep up with it. Before my very eyes I got to see a beautiful woman transform into a beast. She was beauty and the beast in one package. Her existence really is a sad one, but I actually think she is happy with the way things turned out. This is who she is now, and she can be one with nature without worry. Not gonna lie, it would be great to have the whole world be your bathroom. May Bigfoot live in peace for the rest of her life. And soon there will be little feet running around, because I impregnated her.

Bananas

This post is bananas. What did we do to deserve bananas? Now, bananas are not the best food in the world. That is true. But they are very good for you and taste decent. Bananas are great. That was a lot to take in, but bananas are a lot to take in. I mean the size of some of those things are insane. Some bananas are a little smaller of course, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t as delicious. But that is beside the point. I not only eat bananas themselves, but they help make smoothies delicious. They make them smooth and are a key ingredient to some smoothies. And for that, I thank them. I am trying to say we should appreciate bananas more. There is such a wide selection of food, it can be easy to overlook the individual foods. Bananas come from tropical regions and are transported all over the world because of how great they are. Most everyone has that knowledge, but don’t think about that. I certainly will appreciate bananas more.

The Future, personal goals

What lies in store for me? I’m sure many are wondering this. I’ve seen many people dead set on what they want to do for what seems like their whole lives. As if they knew they wanted to be a Toe doctor when they were still in diapers. This was their dream, and they have been chasing that dream for so long, and they have complete direction in life. They have a plan, and nothing is messing with that plan. That person I just described is me. If I happened to have direction in my life. Which I don’t. So yeah, that isn’t me. I know many people are in this same boat, just chillin out. But it is not relaxing at all, it feels like this boat will have holes and could leak at any moment. Or it is like a little dinky boat, and you feel like you’ll never upgrade to a bigger nicer boat if you can’t find direction. For me, figuring out what I want to do is difficult. I recently graduated high school and am going to college soon. I couldn’t find a job and my endeavors to make money from home aren’t amounting to much. So for now I will just keep writing and see what happens. Either way, I know getting myself to do this writing is valuable. I think one of my problems is committing to something all the way. I see something that I may want to do, but I don’t delve into it fully incase it doesn’t work out. When I really should be committing to it all the way. Some aren’t in the best positions to do this either, but many people take those risks and it pays off. I’m glad I at least have chosen to go to college, I do believe it will help me find direction. And with it being community college, it won’t be as much debt. So hopefully this will help me find my direction. It is possible I won’t right away, but I’ll just have to wait and see. Everyone wants success to lie in their future. But not everyone can be successful. It is pretty sad if you think about it. There are crushed dreams everywhere. People who have dreams to do something or become something, but can’t because of the realities of life. Sure if they really tried they could have made it happen, but if everyone else were to really try, then not everyone could get what they want. You’d have to be trying harder than another person. It would just end up being about who wants it more. This is just how society can function though, there are probably few who grew up wanting to be a garbage man. But someone needs to do the job. Things will get more interesting as robots take more and more jobs. I hope my dreams don’t get taken away from me by robots.

Astral Projection (It is possible to time travel?)

Astral projection is something that instantly caught my attention when I heard about it. Eventually through my fascination with dreams and lucid dreaming, I had come across the topic of astral projection. I had looked up stuff about it, tracked down people that have knowledge about it, and tried to learn techniques on how to do it. People were making wild claims about it, and I wanted to figure out for myself if those claims were true. The most fascinating thing I heard, is that you can essentially time travel. Though you can’t go to the future, I was told it is possible to explore the past. That got me thinking of a lot of things. If this was possible, then what are people doing bothering with going to museums? You’d be able to see what these things looked like when they were alive. Of course, only if this were true that is. Is it true? I still don’t know. There is really no telling whether it would just be a realistic dream or not. For instance if you tried verifying this by going to a time in your personal past, could that just be your mind making it up? If you were to go to a past unknown to you, could it again, just be your mind making things up? I suppose one way to verify, is to go to the past and witness a personal experience of someone else, and then in the waking world you confront that person and figure out if that were true.

I had one time when I actually seemed to successfully escape my body. I had done this technique where you just roll out of your body. There is another where you imagine a rope above your head and you grab it and pull it and escape your body that way. And you never physically move your body in any of these techniques, you actually try to be as still as possible. Anyways, when I had successfully rolled out of my body, I kind of fell like a feather to my floor. Then I remember doing a handstand on my bed, and falling down onto my body and then I woke up. This could have been a dream too, but I am uncertain. Either way I have not been able to verify if astral projection really is a thing, and if you can do some of the thing people claim you can do. There was another time before when I was trying to force myself out of my body during sleep paralysis, but it just felt so scary. And during other times for some reason, I felt immense fear and didn’t even want to try to escape my body even if I could. Even though when awake I really have the desire to do it, I found myself fearing it when it came to the opportunity. This tells me there is some mental prep that needs to be done, that can perhaps be done during meditation. Either way this is very interesting to me, and I will hopefully someday be able to unlock the mysteries to astral projection.

Teen live-streams car crash that killed her sister. (Why driving scares me)

Obdulia Sanchez and people like her are especially what make me fear driving. She crashed while live streaming to Instagram, and her 14 year old sister died in the crash. Also based on the charges, she was under the influence. I do not recommend looking up the video. In said video after the crash took place, Obdulia Sanchez says how she loves her sister to death, while she points her phone at her and streams her sisters bloodied corpse for the world to see. She deserves to be behind bars to ensure the safety of others.

This kind of thing really makes me not want to drive at all. There are lots of people like this on the road that aren’t even thinking of the consequences their reckless behavior could have. Not only is being under the influence while driving a problem, many people just make errors. In this case though, errors will cost you. Usually failing can be used to learn your lesson and help you do better next time, but there very well could be no next time if you fail in driving. What sucks too is no matter how much you were to sharpen your driving skills, some idiot could mess things up for you. It just takes one irresponsible driver to ruin your life. Not like every time you drive you enter a war zone, but it is like you are putting your life in the hands of complete strangers. Unfortunately this just can’t be helped, people have places to be, and I don’t think the world is changing anytime soon.

Yeah well now that all the grim thoughts are out of my head, I will now think about the possibilities of the future. Of course everyone is waiting for teleportation to be a thing. The only thing is, will there be any restrictions to it? Because in this day and age of the iPhone, privacy already is an issue. We don’t need creeps being able to teleport into our homes any time they wish. It would probably need to be something with a device like a phone. If you get a phone call, you have to first press a button and answer the call before they can talk to you. If the same concept could be done with teleportation, that would be great. Though if the whole teleportation thing could be hacked like a computer, that would just be a disaster. If teleportation were to become a thing I believe it would need to be between two linked devices. Or rather many linked devices that link to one main device, which would be a teleportation station. There could be designated teleportation stations around the world. At first they would be limited, and only certain people could access them. Later on though, more and more would be everywhere. Restricting the amount of people to use them at first would be necessary since everyone would want to use it. It would end up worse than the inside of Walmart during a Black Friday sale. Once there are zones pretty much everywhere like telephone poles, everyone could access them. The device could have a limit based on how many people are in the area though. It would actually be like a server in the way it has a limit of the amount of people that can be on it. The idea of this is crazy though, how exactly would it be done? Probably something like dematerializing your body and sending it that distance at super fast speeds, then you re-materialize. Though who knows if you will dematerialize in the same way. Either way though, I probably shouldn’t doubt science. If teleportation doesn’t end up being possible, I wouldn’t be opposed to a giant slip and slide system that goes across the whole world.

Why I am starting a blog

I am Seth, and I am online. So why wouldn’t I start a blog? There is always something new someone can learn,  whether it be general knowledge or about a certain skill. Now with humanity connected online, that spread of information has gone further than the old people of the past probably could have ever imagined. I’m not gonna be some educational blog, but I will be informative at times. It also will be for fun things that happen in day to day life, maybe writing about a new soda or something weird that happened in the news. Also I am going to be going on a journey to get better at writing, so it can all be documented here. At the same time it will be a tool to help me improve it too. I’ll probably be posting writing prompts every so often, possibly I’ll get myself to do it daily.
