Time To Switch It Up

I wanted Shattered Reflection to reach 65,000 word wise. It would be on the lower end of things and I can put in enough stories that a good number of people would find interesting. I had pushed hard to make it to 50,000 enough for about 77 pages which is pretty hard to do considering everything, but that was okay. Doing it had done a lot to look back learning little bits about myself.

Fighting under street lights, being shot at multiple times, betrayals and few true good friends. Everything that had been powered through in my life made a lot of interesting stories doing things that some people may not have had experience doing. I was a backyard wrestler, a problem solver, a doodler, cook, and an all around smart ass. Call it the passing of genetic talent when it comes to that last one because if there was anything my family had in the vein of born talent. Back to the point at hand though all the stuff to this point made me realize somethings.

Normally, I do not want to be really cocky for the most part, or I will turn in to a persona that is cocky to comedic effect. Looking back at everything in the format of a book made me really gain some perspective on some things. For all the work I did burn myself out on it so taking a moment away will do some good while I work on some other writing projects.

There is a short story I have been meaning to type up just on the thought of prom experiences. I never had any great ones, but I also am a fan of the sweet romances. Think like Kakashi from Naruto except even more saccharine romance being read.

Also, I have something going on where I may get a camera for the two food books that need them. Finally getting that portion done will make me happy, as it has been on the docket for quite a while. Getting those projects closer to completion would make me a happy person.

Thoughts about teaching

So recently things have not been going on in the unhipster camp. People have been disappointing me in ways I really am hurt by. A thing I like to go by is that when someone asks me for help that I will do just that until they either raise there stock as the saying go. I love seeing people succeed, and I think that people do not know what they can do until they are forced to do it sometimes.

Following the disappointments from grand prix people who know me also know that I push people to be the best in everything they wish to strive for. So when I push and learn new things to further my own abilities it takes a lot of energy to even match me. Not to toot my own horn it is just when I push to learn sometimes eighteen hours some days between games, audio work, drawing, writing, advertising, marketing, finding a better job, working on my own economic situation.

People will come to be either your greatest asset or your greatest disappointment. The only disappointment by number is to have someone simply to leave before their abilities reach fruition. It has happened in the kitchen, in games and really every day it happens more then it should. A part of the issue is that people simply do not have the drive to really make their mark. From the other side of the coin I think a big issue is also the point of education or to work with someone to help them.

No matter what trade or what hobby you participate in it takes a special type of person to give the knowledge that they have without a whole lot of expectations in return. One day once a lot more of my financials are handled I really wish to be in a position to take a person and really take the time to train them imparting what I would have learned by then. Some people will not give the experience because many people believe they can still make money on it. True to some degree, but when some people will ask me to teach them to the best of my ability in something I will go to my limits for that person if they show they are receptive to it.

If someone was to beat me using a technique I had taught them then I had would then have to raise my game and as a response I would have to grow. I look at that as a form of payback to teach and have someone best you then you need to get better. Having someone you taught to give you that opportunity to better yourself is a form of pride for me. I wish that when I become more then what I am here that it can happen to propel someone to the next level.

Just my thoughts,
