The List

  • This is a couple of bullet points…
  • Why do they call these bullet points?
  • I mean, seriously, what do they have to do with bullets?
  • I can see that they are points, but in no way do I see that they resemble bullets…
  • I realize I like to use the three period thing after each of my non-questions…
  • By the way, it is called an ellipsis…
  • I just looked it up…
  • I am not using them in proper fashion, but I just think it looks cool…
  • Am I wrong?
  • Anyways, I wanted to branch out a bit with my writing…
  • Be a bit silly with it…
  • At this point you realize in no way am I making bullets other than for the purpose of having fun…
  • Is this fun to you???
  • Oooh, that was three question marks, I’m changing it up on you.
  • *Insert Random Word Here*
  • Had I inserted a random word there it probably would have been “random…”
  • Would that have been random or expected?
  • Are all these questions rhetorical or do I expect answers in the comments???
  • Back at it again with the three question marks.
  • And only one period to end that sentence, interesting…
  • Nope, back to the ellipsis…
  • Shall I insert a block quote here for good measure…

“I assume I shall,”

  • You clicked the link and are back on my page…
  • What did you expect???
  • Are you having fun yet???
  • I hope so…
  • If you made this far, I thank you.
  • You, my reader, are an inspiration to me.
  • You are incredibly special and so unique there is not another individual out there that is like you, and I hope you understand that…
  • You smiling at this post really made my day/night/morning/noon/afternoon/evening/existence
  • Never forget how awesome you are…
  • Your reward for making it all the way to the end is a link to some cute puppy pictures…
  • If you don’t like puppies, I also have one to some cute kittens…
  • Much Love

How’s It Going

So, the last time I was on here was about five days ago. I left my professional hello with a summary, extremely generalized, of what it is I wanted to do here. At the time I was seated in the college library blogging away before I had to go to my next class. Time has gone by and life has changed for the better. Since I last wrote, I had the opportunity to go to work, attend a “Mexican” wedding, go to church, and go dancing in the rain. An immensely enjoyable several days for which to ponder both my life and existence and the meaning of all of it as I danced to “La Vaca.” Here is what I want to share:

Be Patient.

I am single at the time of this writing, and most likely, will be so for quite some time. I don’t say this to receive sympathy from those happily married or in a relationship. I state this as a fact to teach those in my position. At my age there are many who are longing, quite possibly, pining for a significant other in their life, and the effects of desire for someone to care for them can be quite damaging. I can recall a time, not too long ago, where I found myself so lost in selfishly longing for a girlfriend, that I ceased to care for my own existence or the memories that were being made around me. My parents, whom loved me ever so dearly, could do nothing but sit and pray and hope as I moped about at the hands of loneliness. I tried for ages to get a girl to like me, and whenever it seemed as though the ball was in my corner and I had finally achieved victory, it was fist of rejection that came and sent me flying back down into rock bottom. By the time of my first relationship, I had been rejected nearly twenty times by twenty different girls (and yes I know this is not a high number, but I am using this all to prove a point). At that stage of my life is was extremely hard to wake up and find a reason to be truly happy.

When I finally did find a girl who was willing to make pursuit of a relationship with me, her morals and beliefs were absolute opposite to that which I held in high regard. She drank, I abstained from all forms of alcohol (a reasoning I’ll provide at a later date). She did drugs, I didn’t do drugs. She had a kid and immediately wanted to have sex, I wanted to wait until marriage. She cussed like a sailor, I was trying to cut down on rude language. All those were just some of the examples of different lifestyle choices that I willingly overlooked because I was desperate to keep her. Yet, there was an even greater difference that stood as the ultimate reason for which our relationship was destined for failure.

She Lusted and I Loved…

Her emotions and sentiments towards me, and even the two other girls I dated after her, were solely based upon desire. Her desire was nothing more than sexual relation and the other physical benefits of a relationship. The two other ladies I dated had a desire for self-worth for which they believed I could give them through our relationship. The problem for myself was I loved. Not in a way for which young men whose hormones are running at five-hundred miles per hour say they love, but with a greater Love. As my first relationship was in full-swing I began to allow God to break bondage off of me. My heart no longer hurt like it once did, and I found myself not falling, but loving my girlfriend for who God had purposed her to be, as both a mother and an individual.  Long story short, not a single relationship worked out for me, and here I sit still single. But, I am single with a reason, and this reason I give unto you.

Be patient. Wait and be patient for whomever it is that is destined to be with you. I can say from experience, I know it hurts waiting for a woman. I know that it seems to be the worst feeling in the world when there is an individual whom you’ve seemingly dedicated all that you can to, both physically and emotionally, and she in no way reciprocates those sentiments. It’s an ugly feeling. But, in what way is a continual pursuit of an individual who doesn’t feel for you make the situation any better. Not only do you hurt yourself, but you hurt the one that will become your soul mate. If you are not whole enough, having a self-worth, a self-appreciation, joy, and love, how can you support and be equals for your future spouse. You can’t. That is why singleness is a blessing in disguise. It gives all of us time to make ourselves ready for the person we plan to spend the rest of our lives with.

How do you emotionally prepare for Him/Her?

I don’t believe I will ever know all of those who sit down and spend time to read this blog, so I don’t know where you are in life and what you believe in. So, for whomever you may be, I want to tell you what Love is. Love is not the feeling/emotion you get looking at your spouse as they walk down the aisle. Love is not seeing your first child being born. Love is not the proud faces of your Mother and Father seeing you achieve your lifelong goals. Those are a product of what true love is. Love is a man named Jesus whose compassion for the people of this Earth reached further than the persecution and hate he ever received. Depression is serious, but it can be defeated. Today, wherever you may be I ask of you, that if you want to escape loneliness or if you want to be ready for your future spouse; give it to God. God’s Love, the real love that He gives and not the one people promote hate with, is so incredibly unconditional that it goes beyond your race, color, religion, and lifestyle choices. God loves you for who you are and whom He made you to be. It says Romans 3:23:

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”

Nobody is perfect. Not one. And what you are going through, we have all been there. Even more, you are loved. I love you. Jesus loves you. If you want Jesus to be apart of your life, simply ask. Tell Him that you need Him. There is not an exact salvation prayer written in the Bible. The prayer is acknowledging you’re a sinner, acknowledging the death and resurrection of Jesus, and giving it to Him.

You’re Not Alone.

Despite circumstances and past things, your past isn’t who you are anymore. It is gone and forgotten and can never be brought up again. If you need to contact someone you can e-mail me at l2bass360@gmail.com. I hope this helped. This post really changed from beginning to end, but you’ll learn that’s me.

Much Love,

David JM

Hello

If for some incredibly odd reason, it does end up that I have individuals  reading these posts I’d like to have a proper introduction. Thus, with what better way to welcome a reader to a blog than to say “Hello.” If that wasn’t sufficient enough, I can also say “Aloha” or “Hola” or “Bonjour” or ”     .” That last one was in ASL, so you couldn’t quite see it, but I did sign the word to you. Anyways…. With every great welcome, in the case of myself it was a heart-warming hello, comes a brief summary of whom an individual is. For myself, my name is David. I am currently living at the ripe, young age of nineteen. I survive and spend my times in a certain city of California. I am more than sure that you will discover where that is, but for the time being let it be that your knowledge of me is simply David, California, and Nineteen. I hope that whatever content, or lack thereof, that I supply will intrigue you, satisfy you, help you, encourage you, strengthen you, build you higher, humble you lower, show you that you’re awesome, show you that you’re not alone, make you curious, make you confident, teach you how to do a backflip, make you smile, and make you laugh. If you care to introduce yourself, feel free to leave a comment.

With Much Love & Care,

David J. M.
