Welcome to my little corner of the world, this is where I rant, rave, kvetch or wax on nostalgic about anything and anyone that crosses my path at that moment in time.
Sit down for a bit and read some. If you enjoy what you read, please pass the love on to others so that they may partake in the yummy goodness that lies here.

My Awakening

"Success is on its way to you."

This is from a fortune cookie, who's fortune I decided to place in my wallet to be rediscovered whilst cleaning out said wallet today. Its discovery got me thinking, what success is on its way? Then I realized that whatever it is, I should not become apathetic to its arrival. That I should not sit on my haunches waiting for it to make its grand appearance, I shall take my fortune into my own hands.

This past weekend has only solidified the fact I need to take charge more of my life instead of asking why, when, how or where all the time as to when I will get mine or permission as to what I can do or should.

My name is Matt. (Not really, but go with it.)

I give and give and give and give. I give wholeheartedly to friends, family and to life constantly, only to be given only a fraction of what I gave in return.

I have had an epiphany and a reset on that weekend that has been coming for awhile.

No more.

I am about to become the person I need to be, the person I once was, the person that didn't give a fuck about most anything. A person that didn't have a heart, that did things without thinking, without caring who's feelings were hurt, one that lived for the moment.

No more.


This is an awakening, a new beginning, a rebirth of myself, a new discovery. I am tired of caring of giving with my all, to not receive anything back.

I am done with it. It is time to take care of my own.

Online Dating

Ok, I will admit that I am on a couple of 'dating sites'.

Yeah, I hear you laughter, fuck off.

Anyways, I am like many a man that walks the Earth, I am attracted to beauty, not necessarily super model types, but the girl next door type. I will click on a profile of a woman that is beautiful for that is what catches my attention first.

The one thing that bothers me after I click on a profile, is if the profile is lame. I mean lame by lack of information or something that looks like it was copy and pasted from some profile template of lameness. The ones that really are special to me, are the ones that have children at a young age and the profile reads like they only have an 8th grade education with the spelling; grammar doesn't bother as much, most people type the way they speak, which I can deal with, bad spelling is difficult.

Is it hard to proof read what you're saying or to use a dictionary, dictionary.com or spell check?

Using all caps is basically yelling on the online world, but several people use it all the time, to me it looks like you have no initiative to check the status of the caps lock on your computer.

All of the above is a bit of turn-off for me. The bad spelling and caps lock usage makes it looks like you have a seemingly low IQ or never paid attention while you were in school for your twelve years but only making it to the eighth grade.
