Discussion: Are You Living?

Are you living?

I ask you, dear reader, this question that I have begun to ask myself lately.

I do not mean it to be dramatic nor hyperbolic. Instead, I am curious as to what everyone’s honest answer is, including and especially my own.

At first, this may seem like an easy question to answer. Yes, of course we are all living. By virtue of opening this article on our device(s) and reading it, I prove that I am alive. “I think, therefore I am”.

Of course I mean to ask more than are we all alive. By living, I mean to ask are we actively present and experiencing our environment on a daily, hourly, or minute-by-minute basis.

This may be where the question becomes a tad bit more complicated than you first thought. Or maybe you are in a similar state of mind as I am and knew exactly what I meant when I asked you the question.

The Secret Life of Toilet Paper

Toilet paper.

We may take this good for granted, however it truly is a marker of civilization.

Before the invention of toilet paper, a variety of other items were used throughout human history. Scooping sticks made from wood and precious metals, to sand and pebbles, mussel shells, corn cobs, sponges, and more were used as the go to cleanup item when someone needed to go.

The Struggles of a Multipotentialite

multipotentialite

The term “multipotentialite” is used to describe someone who has a multitude of interests and creative pursuits and has no “one true calling”.

If this is a real character trait, then I consider myself a multipotentialite.

My interests vary greatly. They include acting, professional wrestling, journalism, cooking (food, in general), music, current events, reading, writing, politics, entrepreneurship, and more.

The Reality Behind Girls and ‘Nice Guys’

The following post concerns a topic that has been highly contested among girls and boys, men and women for quite some time. I will be discussing what I feel to be the truth about the relationship (or lack there-of) between girls and the ‘nice guys’ that never quite seem to get the upper hand.

For starters, let’s just go over what the issue is. The basic sentiment is that girls never pick the nice guys, but instead go for the assholes (if you’d excuse my language). Then the girls go on to complain about how they can’t find a good guy to take care of them. Guys, upon hearing this, become upset because they know they’re good guys but usually end up ‘friend-zoned’ with no way of escape. Because of this, girls are stupid for creating assholes out of the good guys who are just looking for a way to compete and get the girl of their dreams. I believe that about sums it up.

The Struggles of a Pro-Wrestling Fan

I’d like to take some time to make my first real blog post about something I am truly passionate about. This something is pro-wrestling.

Many of you will see the title of this post and simply scroll on. I can’t blame you. Pro-wrestling has a horrible rap in the eyes of many people. Because of this, and the fact it is not deemed as “cool” because it is “fake” or “gay”, many have not even given it a chance. This has also led to the ridicule of those few you know who do enjoy it and and call themselves fans. I did not say “proudly call themselves fans” for a reason. Many fans, myself included, are “in the closet”, for the most part, about being a fan. Now that I’m in college, and word has slipped out amongst my older friends from high school, I am more open about my love for sports entertainment.
