02-02-2009: Howdy y'all. For those of you who watched Super Bowl XLIII last night, I take it you weren't disappointed. That was one heck of a game. I was pulling for Arizona myself so there's some disappointment on my end. Still...they came to play and took the top defensive team in the NFL down to the wire. Great stuff. The halftime show was pretty awesome too. Glad we didn't have wardrobe malfunctions with Bruce Springsteen hehehehe. At any rate, the Super Bowl was not what I was adding an entry about, though I felt obligated to do so. What I was really wanted to share was an incredible reminder of just how I don't have any problems. How there are people who are a lot worse off than I am and I need to learn not to complain when things don't go my way. You see my dad has been seeing a psychiatrist for his Bipolar disorder. I won't use the psychiatrist's name out of respect for her privacy, but she's been through so much within the past year. My mom and dad received a letter from her updating them on what has happened in her life. She has a nasty inoperable brain tumor that she's been receiving intense chemotherapy to treat. During the time of her treatments, her husband committed suicide. Now after saying all this, you would think that the letter she sent would be full of bitterness and self-pity but the surprise was that it wasn't. She kept the tone very upbeat and faithful and that might be the only reason I didn't start to bawl after reading what she's been through. I just can't imagine going through so much in one's life and still being able to stay upbeat and positive. There's only one thing that can make a person that strong and she admits to that herself in the letter. That's the love of Jesus Christ that she's accepted into her heart and it has brought her such peace. Now I realize that there may be some who view this who are not religious and understand, I'm not trying to offend anyone here. I'm just stating it how I see it and I have the right to do so. Even if you're not a part of a particular faith community, I would hope you'd still get the message from this that, when it comes down to it, there's really no need to complain. It want change a thing to do so and besides, there is likely someone going through a whole lot more than you could imagine. I can guarantee you I will try not to complain about anything petty this whole week, even the team I was pulling for losing the Super Bowl. Have a great week and, a good six more weeks of winter if I heard the report correctly about the groundhog. Haven't heard whether or not ole General Beauregard Lee saw his shadow or not. Not that I really put much stock in the groundhog predictions anyway. As for fanficition matters well...I will be completing Ch.2 of "A Dark Matter" sometime today depsite the still gimpy shoulder. Later.
02-17-2009: Well yesterday was my 26th birthday and y'all got a present. I finally wrote a brief piece about Cody meeting Amanda in the time following TDI. Not much to it but I like to think it's short, sweet, and to the point. Not much else to share news-wise except to say that my shoulder is finally better. Take care everyone.
03-31-2009: Well...my two Loonatics Unleashed fanfics have a lot more meaning for me right now. When I wrote it and decided that my main character Cobalt would get cancer from the meteor's radiation instead of any special powers, I felt blessed that, eventhough I've had a handful of aunts and uncles die of cancer recently, I didn't have to deal with it in my immediate family. Well that all changed earlier this month when my grandpa, a survivor of prostate cancer, was diagnosed with bladder cancer. With his age and past radiation damage from the treatments for the prostate cancer, there's not much that can be done. I'll just have to enjoy the time he has remaining on this earth. He's taking it well at least. His lived a full life. I just hope our Atlanta Braves can win the World Series this year. That be one helluva send off. Now, at the present this won't affect my everyday life as it stands right now. I'll be devoting more time helping them with their yardwork this year when I can. I will try to spend as much time with him as possible as well. I guess I'm lucky that I know his end is coming. That way I know to spend more time with him. There's a lot of folks who don't get that opportunity or, if they do, they don't take it. Well I'll take the opportunity. There won't be another chance at this. Take care everyone and remember to make the most of the time you have with your family and friends for you just never know when the end will come.
