    • Looking for some artist help

      Hey... uhm.. anyone who will read this!  I am looking for an artist that could work in a specific style for a tattoo.  So the style is Trash Polka (its crraaazzzyy) and I want a tie in with a robin (the bird) and a bomb.. seeing as a long time alias of mine is Robn Bomb.  This will be tattooed on my right wrist and I will pay the artist for helping out.  :-)  Spread the word please.. I want to do this before the end of December at least.. sooner the better for me.

      Title says it all.  I need friends.  I want to be able to talk to more people.  I'm a social person.. and lately I have felt very nonsocial.  This is a horrible update.  Bright side.. I lost 80lbs and am pretty close to the shape I was in when I was in the military.. so yay for me.  Ok this is dumb.

    • Ugh..

      My day went like this.. after having some (horrible) pain in my.. nether regions.. And a few other fun symptoms that looked like possibly cancer... I went to the hospital. That is.. an interesting trip for me. Since I am ex military, that means I have to go to a VA hospital. The nearest VA to me is about 2 1/2 hour drive. So I get there.. Get the news that we think its just a hernia.. good news right? Well.. sorta.. that means I'm gonna be in a lot of pain for a while.. and its small enough they wont do surgery. cool. I was also told as I left that they didn't test for everything because they are 90% sure my pains and discomfort are from this hernia. So I make the trip home.. another 2 1/2 hours. Half way home I found out my last living grandma was given 2 days to a week to live.

      FML.

      Fuck Today.

      I'm done.

    • Just a thought..

      Seriously.. I keep seeing this battle between Boomers and Millennials.. I think the most annoying thing for me is that somehow they are pushing out Gen X which is what I was part of. So some words from someone who was part of the last year of Gen X.. Technology is great Boomers.. Just because you don't understand it or the styles today, doesn't make them wrong. And you are lazy, Millennials. You spend more time complaining on social media about how ‪#‎hardlifeis‬ instead of.. doing the work to make it better. Boomers cannot work a computer, where Millennials cannot hold a face to face conversation. Here is an idea.. Millennials should go have a conversation with Boomers in person.. put your phone down.. And listen. Boomers, use this time to ask Millennials questions to better understand the world you now live in. Accept that times are ALWAYS changing.
      Tech is great, but REAL human interaction is also just as great. Find the balance. Put your phone down. Have dinner with friends. Learn something new. Talk to people. Stop judging. Teach someone something new. Hear a story. Laugh at a joke. And for the love of god.. when you see a perfect moment.. sometimes.. just a couple of the times.. don't take a picture.. don't film it.. put it into your memory. Why? Because we paint beautiful pictures with our imaginations and words.. So when you share that moment with someone else.. maybe.. just maybe.. they wont judge you for being "weak".. they will put their phone down.. listen to your story.. and laugh at your joke. Maybe you both will learn something new.

      Here I sit..

      I have been going through some stuff lately. It hasn't been the best. Lost in my own mind 99% of the time.. Trying to find a way to connect. I will be ok. I'm not crying out for help. I'm crying out.. not for help.

      Here I sit
      My life's a model kit
      But I burned the instructions
      And the pieces don't fit
      I eat Spaghetti-Os
      Turn on the stereo
      And keep in my mind
      My best case scenario

      Oh..

      The inner torment we all face is our own battles? That doesn't seem right.. But how can any of us allow our demons to be someone elses problem? How selfish is that? I put on a mask like everyone.. but at the end of the day, I have to see what's underneath.

      Oh I'm without
      Serious doubt
      Oh I'm within
      My constraints
      Oh I'm without
      Serious doubt

      And it just clicks..

      I know I will be ok. Ok. I hope to be more. I know what I have to do to be a better me.. its just a matter of doing it. Isn't that always the problem? Out of shape.. work out. Alone.. go meet people. Tired.. sleep... And yet here I sit.. winded, lonely, and unable to rest.

      And it just clicked
      The things that make me tick
      Get thrown against the wall
      And I keep what sticks
      I wish with all my might
      That I had a cause to fight
      I can't argue with myself
      On this lonesome night

      Oh..

      Again I will be ok. I have these weights that hold me down. I have these fears that keep me still. Sometimes.. crying out is just screaming at a wall. Everyone thinks they are above others problems.. I want to be the solution to somebodies problems. Or maybe.. just part of it.. maybe a stepping stone. But then.. I am left with my weights.

      Oh I'm without
      Serious doubt
      Oh I'm within
      My constraints
      Oh I'm without
      Serious doubt

      I cant complain..

      I am still here.. breathing. I have a family that loves me. I have a few great friends. My demons are mine.. but I have some support. There are so many like me.. who went to a war.. that don't come back.. physically.. mentally.. even spiritually. I cry out.. for those who don't have support.

      I can't complain
      Lost less than gained
      Strive for progression
      My futile needs are all I feed
      It gives me indigestion

      Here I sit..

      Thinking. About being upset. About being lonely. About.. not knowing what comes next. But I have to keep my head up. Keep my demons in check. Strive to be better than I was yesterday. Be a better friend. A better brother. A better son. One day.. a better lover. Its like seeing the start of a race.. and the end of a race.. and knowing what obstacles you face between.. but not seeing the path you have to run to get there.

      Here I sit
      My life's a model kit
      But I burned the instructions
      And the pieces don't fit
      I eat Spaghetti-Os
      Turn on the stereo
      And keep in my mind
      My best case scenario

      Oh..

      I have lost a lot. I have.. problems. My demons. I am startled by firetrucks.. I hide from fireworks. I dream 5 minute dreams.. that leave me shaking. I crave human touch. I crave being loved. I want to see the path I need to walk. I want to find someone to walk that path with me. I want reason..

      Oh I'm without
      Serious doubt
      Oh I'm within
      My constraints
      Oh I'm without
      Serious doubt

      I can't complain..

      Again.. so many have it worse. So many deal with problems/demons I couldn't fathom. So many are alone.. With no path.. no finish line. I can still stand.. though in pain. I know some I know too many who cant stand at all. I know too many who struggle behind their masks. I know too many that will never see that finish line.

      I can't complain
      Lost less than gained
      Strive for progression
      My futile needs are all I feed
      It gives me indigestion

      Lets go!

      I will be a better person. I refuse to hide. I want to be loved. I want to be happy.. at least more than I'm sad. More so.. I want to make other happy. I want to be part of a place.. where those who are lost can find a friend.. someone who will help them on their path.

      Let's go.

      I can't complain..

      Again. I have so much more than I probably deserve. All the things we take for granted. I have lived without clean water. I have lived in immediate danger. I have slept in mud. I have carried caskets. Maybe.. I am stronger than I know. Maybe I really can be more. I guess.. Its up to me.

      I can't complain
      Lost less than gained
      Strive for progression
      My futile needs are all I feed
      It gives me indigestion



      If you got this far.. I should probably explain this. I was a happy kid.. around the age of 6 we realized I wasn't.. dealing with things correctly. I was diagnoses with ADD (which now is just part of ADHD). I took meds for most of my life. I led a very.. strange life. I went all over.. like a nomad. I was lucky to have a family that accepted me with a mohawk, peircings.. and the most abnormal lifestyle one can think of. And at one point I decided I wanted to do more.. so I enlisted. I spent 4/5 years of my time in Active Duty military in a foreign country. Some countries.. better than others. During my time in the service.. doing various things (some I cannot share).. I dealt with a lot of injuries.

      I was always rough on my body.. but I really paid the price in the Army. I shattered my right hand.. destroyed the meniscus in my left knee.. dislocated both shoulders.. had 5 concussions.. destroyed my back at least 3 significant times.. and have had more cuts, bumps, and bruises than I can count. I am really lucky though. I came home from my last deployment to Afghanistan in early 2012.. and due to my injuries was barred from re-enlistment. Basically the Army said I was too broken to be a soldier. It was a tough time.. I was dealing with a lot of emotion. And it was during a time when they started doing military cut backs.

      I fulfilled my second contract with the Army at the end of 2012 and I went home.

      It took me about a year to get out of my house and get a job. I got out of shape. I was averaging about 7-8 hours of sleep every 2 days. And it wasn't consistant sleep.. a couple hours here.. a couple there. I was diagnosed with depression, PTSD, and general anxiety disorder in early 2013. They told me I am 80% disabled. I have spent the past few years feeling broken.. and worthless.

      It has been a struggle. Every day I tell myself.. tomorrow I will be better. Tomorrow I will work out. Tomorrow I will start one of the many projects I have wanted to do. Lately, I have been having a lot of health problems. I have had migraines just about every day for about 2 weeks and now am going through testing to see if I have TBI (Traumatic brain injury). To top it all.. I am anxious.. about being older. On April 20th, I turn 32. I look at those around me that are my age.. or even younger.. and it seems like they have it figured out. They have careers. Families. Goals. Plans.

      Thankfully, I have had a lot of support from my parents, my sister, and few other family members. I see doctors for my problems. I have a few pretty good friends I feel I can talk to.. people I can talk to without the mask I wear to protect myself.

      About 4-5 hours ago, I felt myself dropping. I was pretty manic and I could feel it slipping. For those who don't know, manic is like.. overbearing excitement and hyperactivity for no reason. Its kind of.. your body trying to correct depression. Its very unstable and usually ends in depression. When I get depressed I lose interest in everything.

      I randomly started singing Priorities Intact by the band The Impossibles. Then.. I started writing. Believe it or not.. I didn't write any of this while listening to it. I wrote about stuff I cannot share.. and some stuff I don't want to share publicly. But I felt.. better. Not good.. just better. I started listening to a friends piano music (she is on this site and knows who she is) which I have found very.. relaxing. And then I started writing this. I modeled it after the song Priorities Intact.

      I'm ok now. Yeah just ok. But its better than it could be. I realize so many people have problems.. and no place to go for them. We live in a society that looks down on those who have mental issues.. and that is just wrong. Sure I was born with ADHD.. but most of my other mental problems came from my time in service.

      I guess.. I just want to ask.. anyone that made it this far without getting bored or distracted (and I know all about getting distracted.. I don't blame you).. to reach out to your friends and loved ones. I know first hand how much someone just checking in on me means. It can really make my day.

      And if you are having problems.. if you feel down.. reach out. Talk to someone. It does NOT make you less of a man/woman. It does not make you weak. I will tell you.. the hardest thing I had to do.. was admit I had a problem.. and seek help.

      We all have our problems. We are not above each others problems. Much like carrying lots of weight.. it can crush you if you don't ask for help. And if you see someone who may need help with their "weights".. help. You don't have to carry them for a long time.. just enough to help that person not get "crushed".

      This got really long. I apologize to anyone who read it all. Have a great day/night. Try to smile. Also, if you are interested in the song that sparked this entire post.. you can find it here:

      And hopefully that shared.. b/c this site hates me when I try to link anything ever since they changed the format.

    • I am.. Walter Mitty..

      Wow. A journal. I know its crazy. I hardly write these.

      BUT HERE I AM! WRITING! So buckle up.. for.. nonsense..

      I am Walter Mitty. Have you guys seen that movie? Secret Life of Walter Mitty? I don't think its really a "good" movie.. well.. let me rephrase that. I don't think it was popular. I for one loved it.

      Why?

      Well.. let us break down as much of the movie as we can without spoiling anything..

      Story is about a dude.. named Walter (go figure) who daydreams all of the time. He is probably in his late 30s.. and an ex skater punk. He wears a suit and is.. kind of boring. Works at Life.. back when Life was a magazine. The story takes him on an adventure of finding himself and going on this grand adventure. That.. is all I will say.

      I am 31 (about to be 32).. I too am an ex punk skater who spends most of my days daydreaming (THANKS ADHD!).

      Moral of the story.. I am Walter.. and I want to go to a different country. Just because. It would be fun.

      I went to a bunch of countries when I was in the Army.. but I went as a soldier and couldn't do all the sight seeing stuff.. I am seriously debating just quitting my job.. packing a bag and going. Go for a few months and then come back.

      I think I will want to vidoc the whole experience.

      Because.. why not.

      Anyone want to come along? lol. I kid.. I kid. Well.. about people coming along. I couldn't really ask anyone to quit jobs and all that. But I'm seriously considering selling all of my stuff and packing a duffle and traveling somewhere.

      Anywhere.

      How far are you in to skate? I made it a good ways in before I hit a wall of ridiculously impossible challenges.

      As far as the game itself goes...in multiplayer, it's fun as hell...but when you are required to hit certain tricks or make X number of points in X number seconds...that is where the game fails for me. Adding that level of "requirement" steals away the fun of it being a truly "open" skating game.
