Thoughts of an Early Bird

Despite showing up to work late this morning I’m in a rather chipper mood. When calling in to say I’d be late I told my coworker that my phone died in my sleep. Yes, I realize how dumb that sounds, but I feel if I say more than it’ll seem more like a lie. Completely truthful though, those damn iphone batteries are horrible. Driving in I tried to think about all of the things that get me through the day, or maybe just things that make me happy so I figured I’d share….

  • First off, cinnamon can do wonders in a milkshake. I learned this on a summer vacation with Ana(my girlfriend) and other various friends who I will talk about quite often. Anyway, we went to a movie tavern which was also a first for us. Movie tavern prices can be a but rich so Ana and I shared a mexican vanilla milkshake. I was puzzled about the mexican part so I asked the waiter. He simply said,” its vanilla with cinnamon and its delicious”. Hmmm..” Seems legit,heres $7″..two words.. Worth it. Very easy to make at home as well.

  • A coffee had to be close enough to the milkshake since it was 8 in the morning. Next is the music. Theres no type of music that I dislike. In the mornings though, aside from ESPN Radio, I listen to christian music. Its peaceful, influential, and lets me know the man upstairs is with me today. 
  • I probably pass by at least 3 cops a day going to work. There is a ton of controversy these days with cops. Id bet Someone who got a 4 over speeding ticket this morning is complaining somewhere… But why,? Because a cop pulled you over and did his job? Im not one to talk too much because I speed EVERYWHERE, but I know the risk I run. That was a light example, but there are other issues. Shootings and such. These are select people and they may have had a reason or they may not have, we never know because the news hypes it up how they want it to be seen.Dont hate cops. People make mistakes. Thats how we are wired. Im proud to know theres people keeping me safe each day.
  • Lastly,make someone smile today. I work at a feed store and finally made it. My first customer needed 2 bags of feed. He tipped me $5 for 2 minute of my time, and to do my job. We need more people like this in the world. Rich or poor it doesnt take money to put a smile on someones face. Just a kind heart.

Have a wonderful day everyone!!

Man’s Bestfriend

Why is a dog a man’s bestfriend?
Easy, they don’t talk. Words hurt, words point out the truth. People complain with words, and then about words said.A dog just wants to be fed and rubbed every now and then. Thats not too much to ask. If it is, dont get a dog. 
Dogs have feelings and they will show them, but I bet one’s never been pissed off about a treat or a belly rub. 
Im gonna talk a bit about my dog here. Hes not perfect. Ive had him since he was a baby and he has always been treated well. He is a bit sciddish which is a downfall, but it gives me a great perspective. He is cautious. He learns a person before he will trust them. People are often disapointed putting blind trust into things they do not know. 
Ive watched people grab at dogs while they are eating, get snapped at and then show a face of disgust. Do you like someones hands in your food while you eat it?
My dog growls when he hears someone pull up in the driveway, he barks when someone comes in the door. My roomate often complains about this. He tells my dog to shutup. How is the dog supposed to know you texted your friend to come over? Why should he not be alarmed when someone is walking into his home?

Take the blinders off and challenge yourself to see other people’s perspectives. You dont have to agree, but you also dont have to contest anything. ” Everyone has the right to not be offended.”

My First Blog: Growing Pains

Hey hey hey, Chris here, I’m new to this so I’ll start with a little background. I’m 20 years old, attending college, living with my bestfriend and girlfriend in a beautiful riverside farmhouse that we just started renting.

So far the new year has brought nothing but new stresses for me. Im not much of a complainer because there is a way to fix anything, annnd things could always be worse no matter what the situation. So heres the problem, I AM BORED OUT OF MY MIND. Believe me, im satisfied with my life and all of what is in it. But Im tired of the same old routines of wakeing up early, going to work, getting off to hangout with friends of which I dont even know are true friends,staying up late doing nothing and then being dead ass tired in the morning again. Ohh, and weekends, you can slow down a bit and not go by in what seems like a few hours. Thats only the weekends im not working though of course.

If your starting your adult life you know exactly what im talking about. Life gets boring. Like I said before though”stay satisfied”, things could be worse. Im new to this so I wanna request a little help here. Leave me some comments, meet me, ask me questions, or tell me something interesting to do in my free time. Ill pick something and give some feedback on it.. Until next time. Have a blesed day everyone. image.jpegHeres a picture of my dog to make this post slightly less boring­čśů
