Today's Post: Questions 5, & 6!

I decided to nip the rest (i.e. the last 2) of the questions in the bud so that I can move on to another topic. I'm not going to lie; I'm a bit tired of all of these questions that make me feel like I suck as a person.

Question #5: Am I as good a person as I want to be?

Well, crap, I don't know! I mean, I could be more active at church. I could be nicer to my family. I could visit my family more. I could get angry less. I could... well, you get the point. I'm a flawed individual, but on a real note, show me a person who's not, and I'll show you Jesus H. Christ. So, being that I am of the mindset that requires I try to emulate the life of Jesus, I will never be as good a person as I want to be simply because I am human, and I am utterly and totally sinful. As depressing as that sounds, however, it's actually not. The great thing is that I CAN sin. I don't have to feel completely condemned simply because I lost my temper at my boyfriend the other day and said some things that I shouldn't have. You know why? 'Cause I was forgiven for all of that crap a very long time ago. Awesome.

Ok. Too much preachy talk. Moving onward...

Question #6: What am I doing to live life with passion, health, and energy?

Uhhhhhhhhhh... I don't know what kind of answer they're looking for here. As far as the passion thing goes, I'm living my life in the moment. If I like something, I'm going to explore that. I pursue the things I am passionate about (i.e. music and animals), and I do so with fervor.

On the health lines, I'm working on that. It's hard, but... we'll see how it turns out.

On the energy lines... huh? I'm sure, being that these questions are coming from a zen magazine, that they're talking about the kind of energy that does not come from a good night's sleep, and honestly, I don't really think too much about the Earth's energy or the plants and things that are on it. Sure, I can sense when energy feels a little off, but... meh. That's a whole other ball of wax that I just don't want to delve into at 12:07 in the morning... or... evening? Whichever.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do for the next segment of my blog, but I'm definitely pleased to be done with this. It took WAY too long, and that was all my fault. Oh well.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
