A Little Bit of Everything

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 17, 2016, 1:28 PM
So.  It's been a while.  A lot of new, exciting things.  A few old, haunting things.  So, I'll do my best to catch you up on everything as succinctly as possible.

I bought a house.  I closed on it in June, making me a first time homeowner.  This is both thoroughly exciting and mildly frightening.  On the plus side, I get to put up whatever weird decorations I want that appeal to my eclectic personality.  I post a lot of pictures on my instagram and snapchat, so feel free to add me on those (or even if you just want to chat.)  Instagram:  KillingPoetry  snapchat:  poeticweapon  Hey, do any of you play Xbox One?  You should add me on there too:  KillingPoetry

I finally got my Associates degree in May.  It took me forever, but working full time and going to school simultaneously can be challenging.  In my final semester I participated in a creative writing class which, if nothing else, reminded me how much I absolutely love to be surrounded by other writers.  I need this more in my life.  Any writers in the Western North Carolina, Asheville NC area?  Hit me up.  I think writing is a lot more rewarding when you're helping others and being helped yourself.  That being said, even if you don't live nearby, you can always drop me a note and we can talk about writing.  Although I've been writing for the better part of twenty-five years, it's only within the past few years that I've come to learn just how much I truly love it and how passionate I am about it.  It's one of the few things that makes me want to wake up in the morning.

It's been a year since I lost my final grandparent to cancer.  Although a year has passed, those wounds are still fresh and, interestingly enough, it has reinvigorated both my bane for religion as well as my own desire to find my place in the universe.  As a result I've been looking into a lot of religions, spiritualities and etc.  The most recent interest is Druidism.  Don't get me wrong, I am by no means subscribing to anything, but I do find it fascinating to look into the beliefs of ancient and modern spiritual and religious constructs.  Ultimately I think the answer to the universe is one of two possibilities:  Everything is insignificant and meaningless and we are just small specks in a greater universe that could care less or there is some source of power and intelligence out there that no one, nor no religion, has managed to put its finger on.

I've been writing, as I'm sure you've noticed.  I've had a bit of a back and forth battle with it for a while now.  I think in some way I've been choosing to punish myself by depriving myself of something I truly love.  What am I punishing myself for?  That's a complicated answer that I won't go into here, but you can always ask if you're truly interested.  As a result of doing writing lately, I'm working to find my groove again and to continue my evolution.  I love deviantart and I've been here a long time, but sometimes I find it can hurt my work or at least the way I approach it.  That being said, I'm working harder to write what I feel and think, to experiment and try new things and to not allow myself to feel compelled to stay inside the box that may or may have been forged for me here and elsewhere.  One of the most important things is to allow myself to express what is inside of me, and sometimes that is frightening, but I think honesty is the only way to great work.

So what about you guys?  What's new, what's going on?  I miss you.  I'd love to hear from you.  Don't hesitate to hit me up.  Those of you I've been chatting with on snapchat and instagram, you're awesome and I appreciate the fun you bring into my life.  So, write to me.  Write for me.  Write with me.  Let's dive in.

Bio:

I can't stand the idea of never knowing an answer. This feeds into my fascinations with history, criminology, philosophy and psychology. I have a need to know, to get down to the core of something or someone and understand the reasons why. I tend to view the world through analytical eyes and while most are losing themselves in the moment, I am memorizing it. My mind has so many topics to focus on that often times I have difficulty dedicating myself to a single one because they are all arguing for my attention.

I started writing as a child, making little books about cartoon characters, including creating my own. I grew serious about writing in high school where I joined the literary magazine and won several awards. All told, I began writing 28 years ago, wrote my first poem 19 years ago. Often times I write a piece, I am not sure where it is going or why, but upon completion I find myself looking into my own mind and discovering what it is that I am feeling or thinking. A subliminal glimpse into the essence of who I am lies somewhere between the lines I scribe.

My interest in history is extremely broad, with favorite historical figures ranging from Alexander the Great to George Washington. I am also hung up on unsolved historical crimes, the Zodiac Killer and Jack the Ripper, for example. I am an extremely picky reader. Many classical authors fail to catch my attention though I love the works of Edgar Allan Poe, J.D. Salinger and Emily Dickinson. Philosophically I am drawn to Baudrillard and Kant.

I am always open to discussion or random conversation. You can feel free to contact me either through deviantart or on one of the various instant messaging programs I use, my usernames for which are listed below. I have been a member of deviantart for over 8 years and love being a part of the vastly talented literature community. I hope in the future to take a bigger part in that community and to contribute and promote it in whatever ways I can.

Location: Western North Carolina

Quotes:
"I like a look of agony / because I know it's true."

"Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies."

"Better that we die on our feet than live on our knees."

"In a world of global deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

"No target on earth and no purpose in Heaven."

"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth."

Rattle the cages and shake the foundations.  Nothing is permanent.
Want to play with some lyrics?  I'm going to post random song lyrics to analyze.  Today's choice:

"did you exchange a walk on part in the war
for a lead role in a cage"
