Today is one of those days. Sure, there’s plenty to talk about. Jodi Arias, Charles Ramsey, Ariel Castro, Katherine Russell… I could keep going… However, I’m sure you’d much rather hear about people like Lindsey Lohan (FREE LINDSEY!!), Farrah Abraham, Brooke Mueller, and Jessica Alba’s nipples. (yup. THAT was a headline yesterday.) It’s sad. Not the headlines. Not even the stories. Societies interests as a whole are sad.
You can call me high and mighty, or just high. But I refuse to help ANY man OR woman that won't help their selves, and I feel no pity or remorse for those people. If you're looking for sympathy you need to look somewhere else. It's up to you to pave your way, if you make a bad decision... that's your fault. Not mine. So, I’ve decided that today we’re going to talk about sustainable living.
Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet.
I’m not going to pretend you’re listening to me, so I’m not going to give you tips. I’m just going to tell you. If you want a better life, start by educating yourself. Instead of filling your head with bologna fed to you by the media, and those they lie with, take some time out of your day to learn how to change your lifestyle to make the world a better place. If you’re sitting there scratching your head, you need to just go back to bed. You probably never woke up anyway. Stop going through the motions! Here’s a post I had on my personal facebook page a while back, this is basically what I’m getting at:
My alarm clock goes off just before 5am. And, it's been set that way for the past 6 years. At the ripe old age of 24 I find I have 3 e-mail addresses (all of which I actually keep up with.) I work 6-6 Monday through Friday (I work Saturday and Sunday too.). I usually drink a whole pot of coffee before 80% of the population on Delmarva rolls out of bed AND learn at least 2-5 new songs a day (given, I don't retain half of them.) as I drink my coffee and review all of yesterday's news to prepare myself for today. Around 6pm everyday I roll out of work, which is 40 minutes from my home, get something to eat and find somewhere to pick on the guitar and sing a few songs or play a show, usually for charity; or a backyard party with friends (on weekdays, though most shows fall on the weekend.) A lot of my time outside of work is spent traveling, anywhere from Philly, to Baltimore, to Northern Virginia. (I've been spending a lot of time in Salisbury, Cambridge, and Lewes lately.) All before getting to bed, which is usually between 11pm and 1am.
With all of the work I do, I'm just as broke as most of my friends... and I have less money than most of the people in Sussex County collecting unemployment. I'm never late. I TRY to never disappoint. I TRY not to promise something I can't deliver. Which brings me to my point. If you're complaining that you're bored, broke, or that you can't find work... GET OFF YOUR COUCH. That's step 1. Hopefully you can figure out the rest for yourself. Put down the Playstation controller, put down your bong, get off your mother's couch, cut your hair, dress in your Sunday best, and step out the door on the good foot. The world is not sitting still. So, why are you?!
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, here’s a video:
Listen to what he’s saying, think about what I’ve told ya. And have a wonderful day!
