wooo! I am officially in the topics blog and I have posted two up already! w00t! 🙂 there’s been alot of really good ones lately…
- do you believe in some sort of resurrection, or at least your intrinsic being coming back to experience life again? for instance, some people believe you are a “number” at any one time, with a one being at the beginning and a nine being at the end, or being “almost done” with all the things you want to do in your corporeal self. or do you think this is hogwash?
— edited as ada made me aware how bad my sentence logic was 😉
actually I think reincarnation is what is being talked about here as opposed to resurrection. to me resurrection is a one time deal, (ya know that whole lazarus thing) whereas reincarnation can happen as many times as it needs to.
personally, I do not believe in either. however, I wouldn’t discount reincarnation because it’s rather hard to disprove if you think really about it. if after you die you get brought back as someone or something else how can you prove it? do you get little name tags saying “Hi, my name is Dave. I am reincarnated?” who knows. do we keep the memory of these past lives or do they get wiped as our souls get recycled into new bodies?
another question is are you human when born-again or a three-toed sloth with a bad attitude or worse yet a lump of shit sitting in the desert somewhere? there’s certain hindu beliefs that state you live your lives as lower animals and plants before you reach humanity. then as you keep on living these human lives, you reach a certain level of spirituality and connectedness where you eventually achieve immortality. unfortunately, if you’re coming back as a lump of shit, those previous lives you had before must have sucked pretty bad.
no soup for you this time around…

i’d hate to think that when we die, we just turn to worm food and decay into nothingness inside a pretty wooden box. I mean in the grand scheme of things, we really do not live that long… there are some turtles that live a few hundred years and some trees live even longer! hell, this earth is a few billion years old and we’re still kinda young compared so some of those geezers out there. yeah sun I am talking about you ya damn old fart! so, it would be nice to come back as someone (or thing) else or maybe we take a journey to another level of existence once we are finished with this one. that doesn’t necessarily mean we go to “heaven” or “hell,” but perhaps let’s say our souls turn to pure energy and we get to roam the universe (oh yeah, definite star trek influence there :lol:) to do as we please.
resurrection, reincarnation or not, i’ll tell ya one thing… I have no damn clue what’s going to happen once I bite the bullet, but until that time comes I’m going to try and live my life like it was number “nine.”
- why do you blog? do you do it for yourself as a kind of ego thing, or do you just do it to express yourself and share with others?
actually, I blog specifically for two reasons. number one, I have always wanted to keep a journal just so that when I look back on my life, I can see what happened at any given time to me. number two is that because of my job, I am one of the hardest people to get in touch with physically which is probably the biggest gripe they have about me. I am almost next to impossible to reach via phone or in person, so I figured this way my close friends can actually see what I’m up to and all. if others wind up reading this then I am always very honored, but it’s mostly just for friends and personal reasons.
awwww, ain’t this just too cute?? al sent me that link just now.. hehe.
ooh, more guestbook entries… 🙂
much thanks to jen, erika, danielle, melanie, chaela and tom (hey he’s a topics blog contributor as well!) for their kinds words in my guestbook and thanks to armina for adding me to her cam portal. ooh, amy is back with her blog as well! woo! 🙂
— later on in the day
that dinner date with shell never happened because she’s been quite ill for a few days. :*(
i was really looking forward to seeing her too because it’s been at least a half a year since I saw her last. I sooo miss hanging out and gossiping with her. I swear she’s the only person I could ever admit to gossiping with. we’re like little ol’ ladies at a hair salon, I swear! 😆
also, if all goes well, I will once again be living in the same house with her. of course we will live on different floors, but we’re still going be housemates. she’s always fun to talk to, makes the absolute best chicken picatta and brownies I have ever tasted in my life… plus there’s absolutely nothing wrong with some eye candy in the same house as you… 😆
