Mel Almighty

equals bad idea. For one thing, I don't have the patience thing down pat. If I am the supreme being, I'll probably flood earth every two weeks. I'll obliterate every being who questions my existence and I'll definitely not be able to control playing the favoritism game. (Trans. Tom Cruise will be cast immediately to the first, sixth, or seventh circle of hell--I'm still deciding this detail--whereas John Krasinski will own everything in the free world, achieving a demi-god status.)

I guess I'm extremely grateful God is God. And while I wish He'll shower me with extra doses of His particular brand of goodness, I have a feeling everything is perfect as it is. I pray then that God grant me the clarity, no, the humility to see...just see.

I do like that being 26 makes it somewhat illegal to still act juvenile. Of course, I am expected to act my age, be mature and commit to wearing long pants. It entails certain responsibilities like having a job, a life plan, a wonderful legacy to leave behind. I, being me, choose to eschew all that and go with an entirely different philosophy for living. Not only does this make me a highly unconventional individual, it makes me a cautionary example to dewy-eyed kids who still believe in the promise of white picket fences and the suburban lifestyle. Because here's the actual, uncomplicated version of the facts of life: dreams have a way of shattering, people have uncanny capabilities to disappoint, and fate . . . well it definitely has methods to make life interesting (if interesting is another way of saying challenging/unbearable/bloody hell).

Despite all that, I still think life is good as it is. That will be enough to get me through this day, if only people care enough to believe me.

Deciding On A Theme Song

At first I was thinking Boston by Augustana, then Undiscovered by James Morrisson. I almost went with Catalyst or Wreck of the Day by Anna Nalick. However, at the moment, this seems to be the perfect fit.
