Praise the good Lord Jesus Christ and His Heavenly Father for waking up this saved one today uninjured, unimpaired , safely in his same bed under the the same roof, at the same beautiful town on the same beautiful creation of the Lord called earth ready to serve Him another blessed day no matter what!
Unfortunately, I’ve managed to severely damage my MacBook pro’s monitor this morning.
Before I begin to relate to my reader my testimony of how this fairly serious CRIME (haha, in the opinion of myself and my family), I’d like to preface it with the following statement:
As to whether or not it is purely the responsibility of my subconscious reflexes or of my conscious ignorance, I cannot exactly recall or judge from an objective position.
From my conscious perspective, I woke up at around 8:50 am this morning and proceeded to allow my body to do its normal stretching in a somnambulant manner. Little did I know, that one of the earbuds from the pair I recently purchased happened to be left upon the middle of my nearly-closed laptop to the LEFT of me. During this semi-somnambulant period of the morning, one of my arms accidentally pushed down the laptop screen fairly aggressively while the earbud was in the aforemenetioned position.
When it comes to this particular gawkish occurrence of result of what one could view as a minor mistake has become a fairly grievous one, manifesting itself in the form of a severely damage MacBook Pro monitor.
Praise the good Lord Jesus that the hdmi port on this thing actually works seamlessly, without any difficulty or without a necessity to make alterations on the computer’s settings. In so few words, I can just take a recently manufactured HDMI cable, plug one end into my parents’ living room TV then plug the other into my macbook’s hdmi port and whatever is intended to show up on my laptop’s monitor is mirrored onto the recipient monitor.
It is notably strange to be so impressed with something that is, in this day and age, typically as simple of an act as turning the leaver on a faucet and seeing a flow of water come out. This jubilance comes from a recent history of damaging laptop monitors, specifically 2 MacBook Pro monitors as well as 1 dell xyz123 whateverthehell, all of which I managed to severely damage the monitor screens of in a similar fashion (see: entries from mid-2016 for specifics on that occurrence), all of which had hdmi ports that I had suitable cables for and all of which failed to be able to replicate their displays on the external monitors they were connected to.
Every time that I have tried to procure necessary repairs (i.e. a new laptop monitor installed) for laptops that were victims of similar unfortunate occurrences, I have been quoted a fee that is equal to, or even exceeds, the retail price of a brand new windows laptop WITH BETTER SPECS!
I have yet to inform my mother of this little accident and its fairly substantial consequences, so thus I implore anyone reading this for prayers that I’ll at least conjure up the courage to do that….. Hopefully after praying for alleviation of the heavy veil of negativity that has long been over my life through both divine benevolence and positive motivation for me to pursue productive activities daily.
Yes, I am somewhat ambivalent about whether or not I should continue to pour what very little positive/”kinetic” emotional energy in such abundance for something that barely anyone has seen during its more than two years of active tenure. I do not intend to pursue a career in creative writing or the type of writing that I’m doing here, but it would be nice if all of the effort that I’ve poured into this project so consistently for such a long period to bear fruits of reward for me sometime soon.
Then again, I must the remember this blog’s bare mission statement:
THIS BLOG AND THE WORKS THEREIN ARE PRODUCED WITH THE INTENTION OF GLORIFYING THE LORD JESUS CHRIST FIRST AND FOREMOST.
Perhaps it isn’t so explicitly and concisely stated in my “about me” section, but the idea get’s across.
The second goal of this project is to enhance and maintain my spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
And finally, the third goal is for this project to positively enhance: My self-esteem, my mental issues, my value on the post-secondary and labor market, as well as my goals for positive growth in my general life.
Please pray for me.
I need a job, I need a life. I firmly believe that I have talents that many companies would want, some of them being fairly unique, but I need to somehow negotiate a part-time entry-level job coinciding with the pursuit of part-time schooling to enhance those talents to become a future asset for said company.
Oh, and a friend of mine has been trying to convince my that this blog is essentially a perfect puzzle piece to fit right beside the manifestos of the recent psycho/socio-pathic mass-murderers that occupy a substantial portion of our country’s news cycle.
If you reach this type of opinion about me, after even a cursory reading and assessment of a good portion of this blog’s back-catalog, then….. Ha. As awful as this sounds: I’d invite such an easily impressionable dolt, wait I mean “a greatly vigilant concerned citizen”, to report me and this blog to the FBI or the super cyber police immediately. That is my policy on any fears of such a manner henceforth.
As long as the Lord provides me with the motivation and direction, this blog will go on.
The fact that I neglected to describe the recent fairly notably negative life events that have occurred between my dad and I in the past few entries should dispel all notions that this blog is just a “pillow to scream in” or a soapbox.
Perhaps earlier entries adhered to subjects pertaining to my personal and social life, as well as their history. but I’ve unconsciously veered away from that theme recently in the grand scheme of this blog.
Almost all of my new entries begin with a stated intention to address a personal and/or social issue, but always end up focusing on one minor, or sometimes completely unrelated, subject and I embark on a prose-y composition to express my thoughts on that matter. That matter that always IS NOT MY PERSONAL AND/OR SOCIAL LIFE.
Not even the intended person and/or social issue, but just the entire portion of my life in that regard may occupy twenty or thirty words out of the whole thousand word entry. Substantially brief mentions.
True, when I started this blog I was still focused on getting that forlorn approval from my peers and I was still starkly bitter over their unilateral rejection of me in the past, but…. this thing was an outlet for my raw emotion. If you’ve got an issue with that then, once again, I invite you to alert law enforcement as to my suspicious activities on here. That little suggestion is said with a degree of malice and sarcasm admittedly, but nevertheless the only worry that I have with how people view this is:
IF IT GLORIFIES CHRIST AMONGST STRUGGLING YOUNG CHRISTIANS AND THE UNSAVED
Gosh, I can’t believe I so thoroughly ruined this darned MacBook Pro. If my blood-chemistry wasn’t so conducive to a positive mental state and if my dad was here, I’d probably be upset, to say the least. Previous entries will attest to how I think and feel when I’m “upset”.
Well, I have written another doozy and I’m a bit snoozy
but Im NOT plannin’ a roll up on mah haters wit mah uzi
Ha, I bet if this were just a blog where I posted raps about ridiculously violent and hedonistic bull hockey it would be considered a work of art from a mentally stable, productive citizen. I’d have to be black, of course, to pull that off but I’m vibe’ in a different direction than this lection (new word).
Please pray for me though. Please also give comments and likes, they are always appreciated beyond belief.
Go in Christ, friends.
