Wow. Wow. Wow is all that I can say right now. It’s been so long since I posted something on here, and I was finally inspired after reading a journal entry on Neil Gaiman’s website awhile ago.
I apologize to my followers for not being as active as of late. I have been extremely busy with my school work, my personal writing projects, reading and writing projects that have been bestowed upon me by other people, my relationships and not to mention being a Resident Assistant.
I’m probably just going to free-write this post because my brain is sort of fried, so please don’t expect any hidden wisdom from the words that transpire hereafter, just accidental wisdom, which should always be expected.
Being that the new year has finally come along, I guess I should use this post as a sort of reflection that can be used to catapult my mind into my future endeavors.
For starters, 2015 has certainly been a full of splendid memories that contain a lot of great and interesting characters in my life. I know that I sometimes have problems remembering the details of certain people and events, but right now, I can recall a time in which I met a barber who incidentally, was a firefighter. Honestly, it was so refreshing to meet the guy because I had never actually had a conversation with a firefighter, and it was interesting to meet someone with such a notable background.
This past year I was also able to meet a string of characters as an RA. Thinking back on my encounters with those people just makes me really appreciate the unique characteristics that every human being contributes to living life on this planet. I mean, through my job, I’ve met vegans, rugby players, feminists and pro gamers. I’ve met and built relationships with people from different countries. I’ve had conversations with people whom I’ve respectfully disagreed with. All in all, I have been enlightened to new characters that I would have never met had I not been an RA and for that, I am thankful.
On another note, I don’t really care for talking or writing my intimate relationships, but in this past year, I feel that I have found my soul mate in my girlfriend. Together we have accomplished so much, and I know that we will only accomplish more as long as we allow God to lead us through his love.
Alright. Enough of that mushy stuff before I rethink that last paragraph and start hitting the backspace button.
As far as 2016 goes, I’m feeling rather enthused and highly excited about my life right now. Through the kind hearts of my loved ones, I received a modernized typewriter. The first project that I completed on it was a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speech, which I will be presenting to a congregation on January 18 (Dr. King’s birthday). I don’t think I could ask for a better set of words to have first been typed as an actual project than those in which I chose to put down on those three pieces of paper a few days ago.
I’m not too sure when I will be posting again. Hopefully, it’ll be sooner than the time in which it took for me to write this post, but I won’t make any promises since I’ll probably be dying from the work load while at school. This semester I will be reading and writing a ton for my classes and for my school newspaper, The Bulletin. So I will certainly try my best under these circumstances, but don’t be surprised.
Be on the look out for something big and amazing. It could come at any moment.
Peace. Love. God Bless.
