A Tribute

Rest in Peace Michael Jackson. Yes, I have titled this "A Tribute," but it is not specifically for MJ. However, it was his unfortunate passing and the wave of tributes to his life and legend that prompted me to do this. This is to all the people who have died that meant (and still mean) something to us.

I miss you. Although you may not encompass my thoughts as you once did, you will never be forgotten. Every now and then, I think of you and tears still well up in my eyes, but mostly I smile because it's easier for me to remember all the great times you and I had together. At these times, I still wish you were around. I knew you wouldn't be around forever, but I still didn't make the effort to make every time we had awesome, but if you were still around now, I would. Every time you call I would pick up; every time we would be together, we would never fight; every time I would have to say bye, I wouldn't, because I would just go with you wherever you went. I'm sorry I didn't follow you now, but it's not my time. Don't worry, one day I'll be there. Make sure you meet me though!

I guess one last thing I have to say is, although it's very difficult not to cry when someone we love and cherish passes away, let us try to not wash them off into the afterlife with all of our tears, but let us fuel their passage with our smiles and talks of the good that has come of the time that they have been here with us.

Your friend,

I'm All In

Gambling is great, but so many people are afraid to gamble. If you know me, I'm not. I welcome it. Being able to gamble, I believe, is an important skill. Yeah, yeah, "wtf?!" Just think about it: if you ever want to start a business, you're going to be gambling with your money. Yeah, you can do all the research you want to make sure the market you're entering is good or whatever, but you're still gambling because that market could end up shitty in an instant. Like in Hold 'Em, you can get the best hand preflop, pocket Aces, but it can easily seem like a shitty hand when you get rocked by a much, much weaker hand after the flop, turn and river cards are shown.

It's not even just money that we gamble with, but our time, health, grades, love, whatever. Think of your own examples, I don't want to have to do everything. But the gambling is there. Fine, maybe one example. When you're in a relationship, I assume you're putting time and effort into it. But how do you know it will last? I guess you can just say you won't care, but there's always that chance you could still end up doing so. Wee woo, nothing in life is certain, which is exactly why life is just a bunch of gambling. So next time I ask you to play poker, think about saying yes. You're already gambling in life, might as well gamble with me in a game. ;)

Who's Home?

I am. Damn, it's been a while since I've typed anything on this. Spring Quarter is almost over, no Summer Quarter for me, so I guess this is a good time to start. I've been so busy, and when I had some down time, I was still busy doing nothing. Oxymoronic, yes, but you all know what I mean.

What better way to mark my return then to say vague things to try to semi-illustrate what the hell is bugging me.

The more and more it happens, the more difficult it becomes.

Ok, I guess it's only one vague thing. Fack.
