The time has come...

So, it's about time we talk again. It's about time I waste your time and fill your head with random thoughts and ideas about life and everything in it once more. It's about time we get to know what we're doing, what we're thinking, what we're feeling and how we go about showing it.

Quite a mouthful, you say?

Let's start with the usual, a question. What makes you? And no, the answer isn't your parents, although it all started with them, but this is more on a personal level.

What makes you? Is it something you can see? Something you hear, or maybe even feel every time you look in that broken mirror? Yes, you might think your life is perfect, you have everything you ever wished for. Well, wishing never brought anyone anywhere...

What makes you? Is it that special someone you build your life around? Love is a funny thing, it doesn't start with meeting the right person, it starts with loving yourself, little starry eyed princess.

What makes you? Are you defined by the things other people tell you or say about you? bouncing off the light others shine on you just like the moon? Guess what, it's only reflections!

What makes you? Are you the person who has only one way that is set within your mind? And yet you need to prove yourself right everyday. Hmm, it makes me think...

What makes you? The only shining star in the galaxy, yes you, trying to grab that spotlight everywhere you go, handing out judgement to those who might "threaten" you. You who shine brighter than the sun, you have a guess as well. Planet earth doesn't revolve around you.

Like I said, what makes you? What makes you do the things you do, say the things you say, live the life you live? What makes you love, hate, fight, back off, lie, dance, hug, kiss, sing, scream?

Don't you think it's about time you find out? I think it's about time to find out what lies behind those eyes staring back at you in the bathroom mirror every morning. I think it's about time to get to know your greatest friend, your arch enemy, your lifetime long dream, your biggest fear, all in one. YOU

Jelloshots for Jellybean!!

It only happens once a year
You only get it for a day
And as it might not appear
Still, I'm thinking of you today

Your friendship starts to fade
And you're not even to blame
You're simply following rules
Luckily, mine will never be the same

So, shine on you crazy diamond
Today is only yours
Wrap your hidden smile around your eyes
Climb on your happy horse

For this is only me
Me who really wish to say
That I'm wishing you the best
And nothing less, happy birthday!

The way we party!!

The simple answer is yes, we did have a great weekend filled with partying and exotic alcoholic beverages!

This is my brother, he turned 20 on the 6th of March and we celebrated in style!! Like we always should...

Now, you might wonder what that huge jug in front of him contains, well, I'm not sure about everything, but I do know that it was a winner!!

So, how was your weekend? Did it compare to this photo? If it did, please let me know!

Besides for the occasion, the people there made it even better!! What's a party without the right people, right? And believe you me, the right people were there!

So, to all my fellow wild children out there, all my fellow bootleggers, and all my fellow friends who attended this breathtaking event, you guys rock!! You really DO know how to throw a party!!

We will always party hard!

Hidden treasures

Strange what you will find in life when you start searching for hidden treasures.

You might be the guy or girl who walks around with their eyes wide shut, with their mouths wide open, with their hearts locked up in a cage and always quick to complain about how crappy their lives are, not realising that at the end of the day, it's actually your choice if your life is good or bad.

You choose if you want to buy into sorrow, into hurt, into loneliness. You get to choose if you keep holding on to the past or to let go and change the way you feel about it. You get to choose whether or not you smile when you wake up in the morning, whether or not you cry when you look in the mirror, whether or not you have a good day or a bad one, it's your choice to make!!

But instead you hold on to something you had and lost, something you don't want back, but still find comfort with it, instead of moving on, instead of letting go. You still behave exactly the same as you did in the past, coloring your hair or wearing your glasses, or painting your nails black, and coming up with a lame excuse for doing it, but actually deep down you know why you did it, because you are holding on to the past!

Open your eyes, let loose your heart, discover the greatest hidden treasure there is in the world, and that is you!! and don't go looking for it at the bottom of a whisky bottle...

You'd be surprised at how much you can surprise yourself!

Friday cometh!!

After a hectic week, we find ourselves at the end of yet another week, with the wild weekend looming around the corner!

Now, if you're familiar with the book Revelation at the end of the Bible, you might recognise the four guys in the picture, but if you don't, those are the four horsemen we read about that accompany the apocalypse.

So, you're wondering why I picked them to start off the weekend? Keep thinking about it....

While you're thinking about it, let's talk about the guy on the red horse. Do you know his name? He's called War. And he's a pretty famous guy, seeing that THQ made a game about him called Darksiders. 

What makes War a special character?

Do you have an answer for me on that question? Before I give you my answer, you might have guessed it by now, but if not, I'm pretty sure you'll get it pretty quickly...

We all have own red horseman within ourselves, believe it or not. We all are capable of starting a war, we all have that fiery red desire somewhere hidden in our eyes. Some know how to use it to the best of their benefits, other like to run from it and hide the anger within, leaving it to consume them from the inside.

Which one would you be? Do you yield your rewards by fighting for it or do you take whatever is thrown at you while you're sitting in the corner crying your life away in the most shameful manner, asking everybody around you for their sympathy and making sure you get it, not realising how pathetic you have become.

But hey, who am I to judge a life that I can't change? We're not all the same, so let the red horseman lay down judgement;)

There has to be war for peace to exist

The darkest hour never comes in the night

It's Friday again!! And it's a good one, of that I'm sure!

So, let's talk some sense into your unstable little life and get you ready for a wild weekend!

Do you know someone who has a tombstone mentality? People who believe that when they die, everything will be better, all their issues will be sorted, they will wake up in the afterlife with no worries at all. Does this sound familiar? Is this you?

Well, I've got something for you...

You may think that your darkest hour will come somewhere in the night, just after you had your glass of wine, when you are lying in your bed and waiting for the darkness to take you away from it all, but guess what? It's not gonna happen!

You like to live in the shadows, to scared of doing anything, holding on to the past, not keen to fight for yourself. When are you going to wake up?? When are you going to realise that life is here and now? Not somewhere in the past!!

The afterlife isn't going to set you free, it's going to bind you to the life you lived here and now. The choices you make now, the life you live now, the love you give now, the hate you pursue NOW!!! Nothing gets left out in life.

I leave you with today's inspiration...

Keep your friends close....

Friends are the most amazing, weird and wonderful things you'll ever have in your life. And the better you get to know them, the more you'll be amazed...

You might think you know someone, then they surprise you. You might think you know yourself and then you surprise yourself, that happens too.

But the logic thing to remember, is to put yourself in their shoes for one second. Life doesn't revolve around you and all your whisky drinking problems, there are other people with other problems out there.

This is an important thing to remember. You think what different than all your friends, your head is way more screwed up than anyone else's. The reason being that it's only you who knows what's really going on in there. And don't tell me you have clean and pure thoughts all the time. Don't tell me you won't fight for what you believe in!

We are all in this life with our own messed up little idea of life, with all our own baggage, all our own scars. We are all right and we are all wrong. We all make mistakes and we all achieve something from it. We all fight a war, even if it's against your closest friend.

But if you are fighting a war for one of your friends, because deep down you truly care about them, then keep on going. They may not see what you're doing or understand it at first. As long as it has nothing to do with them personally. Personal battles are fought alone!!

Never betray your friends! Let them know what your feelings are and why you feel that way. And if you hurt your friend, say sorry. Fix the problem!!

You won't regret it
