THE HUMAN CONDITION
Hello, loyal readers!
Welcome to Seed’s Life - A Collection of Random Thoughts and Observations.
This experiment started out as a journey of self discovery. I figured it was time to get to know myself a little bit better. To find out what makes me tick. To find out how I have gotten to where I am today and perhaps give me an understanding of what the future may have in store.
It also gives me an opportunity to clear my mind and to free up some space in order to allow some exciting new fresh perspectives.
Some of these snippets are extremely personal. Some you may find funny, but most important: I hope you enjoy.
Without any further hesitation, here are the first five of the never ending story of:
SEED'S LIFE: (POINTS) 1-5
- I am right handed.
- I was not given a middle name. I guess Lindsay followed by the alphabet was enough. It was going to be Wayne. I am happy it was not. No offence Wayne. I told my friends that we were too poor to afford a middle name for me.
- I eat way too much fast food. I’m addicted to McDonald’s and I sometimes go to Burger King as well. I love to watch the newspaper vultures circle. If you’ve ever read the paper at a fast-food joint you know what I am talking about. I am not sure how I have maintained an excellent level of fitness, due to this addiction. I guess I do know. I work my ass off. Next week I am going to kick the junk addiction. Of course - I said that last week. Fuck - it is 2:15. What am I going to eat? Want to grab a burger?
- I have discovered my passion in life. Creating things. I enjoy writing and photography. I love trying to come up with new ideas. It is an absolutely wicked adventure discovering and cultivating this talent. If it is actually a talent. Actually, I know it is. Now, the key is to make a living at it. For those who support me. I love you. I really do. To those who have turned your backs; hopefully, one day, you evolve. Part of the evolution can start with the purchase of my first book: SEED’S SKETCHY RELATIONSHIP THEORIES – A GUIDE TO THE PERILS OF DATING (HOW NOT TO BECOME A BAR REGULAR).
- Self-discovery is a hoot. I have learned so much about myself in the last five years (1998-2003). I’m still struggling. Money has never really beaten a path to my door. Perhaps, some of my insecurity has instilled a large dose of the fear of success. Most people don’t get it. I know I don’t. I am starting to understand what is holding me back. As much as self-discovery is a hoot, it is a very scary place at the same time. A place of solitude. It has to be, after all, it is called self-discovery. Point 5 was going to be about my friends. They seem to change from time-to-time, but always remain the same in the long run. My best friends are… well, I am not going to name them here. You know who you are. At least I think you do.
THE HUMAN CONDITION
The World is a complex, confusing place. Personal plot twists and drama happens to most people almost every single day. Dysfunction, fear and insecurities plague modern wo(man), with the pursuit of material gain being the emphasis and defining quality of successful living. The truth of the matter is we are all about to implode, spontaneously combust, from the intense pressures that we encounter each and every day.
We are forced to cook like a pro, dress like a super model, renovate our homes on a yearly basis and sing like Bo Bice (dated American Idol reference, I think. I can’t even remember who Bo Bice is/was and, I don’t feel like Googling his name). At what point does it become too much?
We think, now. That is what this section is about, the plight of the humanity, in all of its wonderful glory
I am not an Justin Bieber Fan. However, I am an Ed Sheeran Fan --- and both of these Bieber songs were penned by Mr. Sheeran.
