Some People Prefer One, and I the Other

In this world there are assholes and there are non-assholes. Which category you fit into is really up to you, but let me define the two so you don’t jump too soon to put yourself in either one.

1. Assholes
This category will be split into two sections.
a) Genuine Assholes
These people are the ones who know that they’re assholes. The ones who don’t try to hide it. These are the ones that I can appreciate. I mean obviously I’ll get a little upset or annoyed your only persona is asshole(ery), but nevertheless, I enjoy your honesty and appreciate the truth.
b) Fake Assholes
These are the people I cannot stand. The ones who are really nice to you when you’re around them, but talk trash about you when you’re not. It’s the fakeness and hypocrisy that I absolutely abhor.

2. Non-Assholes
These people, as the title says, are non-assholes. They are genuinely nice people. I have met several people like this, and they’re awesome! It isn’t in their nature to make you want to punch them in the face. If you hang out with someone and all you want to do is stab them in the throat with the nearest pointy object, you should reevaluate your relationship with that person. But if you’re with someone who makes you laugh and genuinely makes you feel good, that’s awesome. These are the people I love to be around, for obvious reasons.

So I guess when it comes down to it, you’re going to have assholes and non-assholes in your life. Now, who you let influence your life and your behavior is completely and utterly up to you.

Have a great hump day everyone!

The Spirit of Christmas

For me, Christmas has always started the day after Thanksgiving and runs through the New Years, but I just can’t seem to get into the Spirit of Christmas. I don’t know if maybe it’s that I’m getting older and I just don’t seem to care as much, but I just don’t feel it yet. Christmas is my favorite holiday, ever, no doubt about it. I love the way it changes people, mostly for the better. People become happier, and for a season, people are happy to spend their own hard earned money on others. There’s just something about buying someone gifts and seeing their face when they open it on Christmas morning. I absolutely love it. I know I’ll eventually start to get into the Christmas mood, but for now I’m stuck in limbo.

Anyway, I hope you all are having a great start to your Christmas season!

Merry Christmas!

My Problem with the Church

Let me start off by saying, and please try to follow along because I don’t want you to get confused, I am a Christian. I know what you must be thinking;¬†Damian, a Christian? No.¬†Those of you who know me know that I am a Christian, but those of you who don’t are probably confused about my beliefs, solely because of how I talk about Christians and the Church in general.

I grew up in the Church. There wasn’t a day that I wasn’t at church, except for maybe on a Saturday. I went to a private school, which was conveniently located at my church, and I went to church on Sunday mornings; and to tell you the truth, I loved it. I couldn’t get enough church in me. I even went to a different church with a friend on Wednesday and Sunday nights. I was content with that life. I was happy with that life. I even wanted to be a pastor and have my own church one day. You see, growing up, I was taught to look at the Bible one way. But it wasn’t my way. My faith was not my own, but merely that of my parents. It wasn’t until these resent years that I developed my own faith and my own relationship with God. It wasn’t until then that I realized that the Christian community was full of assholes.

In our society Christians aren’t seen as a good people. Ask anyone (who isn’t a Christian) what they think about when they hear the word Christian and you’ll probably get responses like: Christians are hypocrites, Christians are judgmental and Christians are homophobic. Now answer me this, why the hell would I want to be associated with a group of people like that? What’s that? You wouldn’t? Yeah I din’t think so. Yet so many people are content with this.

Plain and simple, I hate the Church and honestly I am embarrassed to call myself a Christian. It should never be that way, EVER. One should be proud to call himself a follower of Christ, but to associate oneself with a group that has such a disgusting name in society, what’s the point? I’m going to keep pursuing my relationship with God and I’ll fellowship with other Christians, but I’m done with church. I’m not going to look for one because it’s useless. I’ve been to so many churches where all they care about is how my many members they have and how many people are tithing. There is no fellowship or wholeheartedness, just self righteous pricks who have this misconception that they’re perfect and that everyone has to follow their cultish rules or they’ll burn in hell.

I am by no means perfect either. I am man and thus, I fail. I’m not trying to instill in you the fact that I’m perfect and all others are inferior to me. If you take that away from here you’ve taken the wrong message. Please know that I am just as in the wrong as the Christians I talk about. The difference between them and me is, I can openly admit it. I don’t pretend to be perfect.

This is something that’s been eating at me for some time now and I just thought I’d share it with you wonderful people. Please, let me know in the comments what your thoughts are and share this with family and friends because I would love to hear thoughts from many different people on this. Thanks everyone.

6 Months (And Counting)

Six months ago I arrived in Denver, Colorado with a friend expecting to just be here for only a week. As you may have noticed, things didn’t turn out as planned. My flight was rescheduled for the following week and my initial thought was, “Whatever, I’ll just stay and hang out for another week.” I ended up staying past that week and I actually got a job. My move here was really unexpected and quite sudden, but I don’t regret it. I miss the people I left behind and wish I could see them, but hopefully I can go visit soon. All of my stuff is still in Oregon and I need to figure out how to get that here, but maybe when I go visit I can bring the bulk of it back with me. I have really enjoyed being here though. The weather is awesome; who can argue with 300 days of sun? Not I! I’m excited to see what the future holds.

A Little Remodeling

I’ve decided to change the site up a little, yet again. I just haven’t been able to find a look that I like. The way that I feel is that if I don’t like how my site looks, will the people who come and visit it like it? I want it to be visually pleasing and simple to use, so I am trying my hardest to do just that.

If you notice any complications or have any suggestions on how it could be easier to use, just let me know in the comment section and I’ll try my hardest to fix the problem.
