I think it’s important that if you are going to follow my blog and read all of my thoughts, you should know where my sense of style is coming from. There are many people I look at it in every day life and view as authorities. I’m going to identify some of them on this page and tell you why I feel they make good examples to follow.
By doing so, you’ll know where I’m coming from with many of my ideas, rants, and raves, and hopefully it creates a better user experience.
Socrates: as mentioned in the page about me, this is the premier mind in thinking. I decorate my entire apartment with his renderings, and often try to study this great thinker.
Here are a list of his top quotes.
“An honest man is always a child.”
“By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.”
“He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.”
Charlie Sheen: I’m not an extremist or someone who is going to shock you with my views, but I respect his disrespect for normalcy. He does what he wants, says what he wants, and lives life in a way most people write off as wasteful and destructive. He’s creating his own rules and doing things his way. That’s bad-ass.
Tim Tebow: almost the opposite of Charlie Sheen, he does things the way people should do them. He was raised perfectly, has a HUGE heart, and is a role model in everything he does. If the world was made up of Tim Tebow clones, life would be efficient and with more competition for perfection that we could handle. Tim is special and being different is once again, bad-ass.
Some extreme views on things (too many people to mention all): when you follow as many blogs as I do, you run into people who do things against the grain. People who tell you to stock up on canned goods and non-perishable food, because a recession is coming sort of thing. People like Ralph Nader, who are looking to abolish the IRS. People who make assertive decisions on things are doing things their way and I respect that. Much respect to those who take a stance, make a stand, and buck the norm.
I do like to make analogies, and you should see many over the course of time on my blog. Planting seeds for thought is not an easy task, and when I plant seeds, I want to create discussions. I want readers to comment and rant, rave, and shout. It’s what people should do, really follow, really get into a blog like mine. I am amateur but there is not a lot of stuff to do in Middle America, so blogging is something that passes time. Besides, it’s more educational and interactive than television.
