Big Life Changing Decision.

29 Mar

NSMA Draft 2015

Statement from J.D.

J.D. To Enter NSMA Draft

The Parody Agency, which has signed Bach eligible bachelor J.D., released the following statement, in which he explains his decision to enter the 2015 NSMA draft, on his behalf:

“After weighing this decision with my family and friends, I have decided to declare for the 2015 NSMA draft and forgo my remaining eligibility at Bach. I reached this very difficult decision after careful consideration and long thought, realizing how difficult it would be to say goodbye to my bachelors and bachelorettes at Bach. I am eternally grateful for the relationships, friendships, hookups, make out and cuddling sessions, and have greatly enjoyed my time as a bachelor, boyfriend, and friend, both as a broken-hearted heartbreaker and heartbreakie.

“I will always take pride in being chosen and pursued by some amazing, beautiful, incredible, prominent women and bachelorettes, I am confident that my returning bachelors will continue the success for many years to come.

“To the suitresses, countesses, bad girls, good girls, secret and open admirers, I can’t thank you enough for the support you showed me and the boys over my entire Bach career; it was a humbling experience, for you all to enjoy as well, I hope. Continue reading

Losing Sight and Perceptive.

22 Aug

Tomorrow is a mystery, but the future is always bright.

Scattered emotions, improperly managed feelings, and random thoughts constantly running through me has been life lately, finally had an epiphany, it all poured out on paper. Writing really is therapeutic, I’ve had too much on my mind: positive, negative, and indifferent. Thoughts on our current world, the future, my personal, professional, and romantic life. Today, I’m finally feeling more like myself again, all it took was hours of overthinking, constant confusion, cheeky deflection, depressing overanalyzations, and good friends providing doses of no sugarcoating tough yet gentle love. It’s been a life changing roller-coaster of a summer, with extreme highs and extreme lows; for the most part for the better.

It always amazes me how easily rationality and perspective get thrown out the window when you get lost in your head and emotions; quite difficult to get out of it. Sometimes a situation, a person, or something will stress you out so much that it throws you off or takes you off your game; you get distracted, you get lost, and you lose sight of things. Something can be the reason for your highs one minute, but then the cause of your lows the next. I don’t mind change, but when change occurs when everything seems to be going better than ever, perfect then seems to be the furthest thing from the realm of reality. It’s crazy how we can get confusingly blinded by something or someone that we forget our own value, along with everything one has to offer and has going for themselves. Continue reading

Superheroes

23 Oct

What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word:

“Superhero”

You think of an individual who possess “extraordinary or superhuman powers,” who is dedicated to protecting the public. The prototypical superheroes that come to mind are Superman, Spider-man, and super-heroine Wonder Woman, but then there are vigilantes as Batman and Green Arrow without such super-powers who share other superhero traits. The majority of DC and Marvel Comics superheroes use their powers to counter day-to-day crime, while also combating threats against humanity by super-villains; or in Captain America’s case, Nazism or Communism, and for Thor, godlike or demonic creatures.

Recognizing that most characters do not strictly require actual superhuman powers to be deemed superheroes, it’s safe to say that superheroes do not only exist in comic books. So when I hear the word superhero, the first thing that comes to mind are not the characters created and found in fantasy/adventure fiction, but the extraordinary individuals in the world around us, whom possess superhero traits, who are positively impacting, contributing, making, and leaving the world  better than prior to entering it.

I think Dave Chappelle said it best when asked about Richard Pryor, he noted:

“The mark of greatness is when everything before you is obsolete and everything after you bears your mark.”

The same can be said about several people, personally, individuals like, Nelson Mandela, Jackie Robinson, Steve Jobs, Bill and Melinda Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther, Muhammad Ali…, just to name a few, are superheroes in my eyes. But I believe the same can be said and true about any of us today, if not someday. Continue reading

Video: President Obama’s Inaugural Address 2013.

21 Jan

 

Top Quotes from President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address:

  1. “My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it – so long as we seize it together.”
  2. “We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity.”
  3. “We will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law.  We will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully – not because we are naïve about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear.”
  4. “We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.”
  5. “We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.”

Vice President Biden, Mr. Chief Justice, Members of the United States Congress, distinguished guests, and fellow citizens:

Each time we gather to inaugurate a president, we bear witness to the enduring strength of our Constitution.  We affirm the promise of our democracy.  We recall that what binds this nation together is not the colors of our skin or the tenets of our faith or the origins of our names.  What makes us exceptional – what makes us American – is our allegiance to an idea, articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Continue reading
