People Pleaser

Jeez Louise, it's gettin' harder and harder to post on this blog.

Not because I don't have anything to post about on the list, 'cause I got plenty. It's just that I'm finally having fun doing something on the list and I'm spending so much time on it.

Said item on the list is the show. How cool is it to do something you love and not care if it's popular or not? It's been said "Do what you love, the money will follow" but I guess that love means complete and total acceptance of a thing. And I really love the webshow... as lame and as cheesy as it is.

Speaking of the show do you wanna see it? The link leads to the new website but there's a link that leads directly to the videos

But I think that I can really make something of it. This may actually be my breakout.

I've always wanted to perform but I have what they have this... this shyness problem. If you were to come to the Starbucks I work at you'd never know it because I'm so freakin' happy all the time. For the most part the happiness is genuine and if you knew what I went through in my life you'd know that my escape from my past is why I'm so happy.

But there's a form of desperation in my happiness. A way of people pleasing that I never grew out of. A form of "please don't hurt me and I'll be your friend" kinda thing, y'know? Performing in front of a camera with my best friend seems like a positive way to deal with the people pleasing aspect of my personality.

I honestly can see myself in the future writing scripts and being on talk shows and mingling with famous people and being a famous person. I am really grateful for this list. It's opened up a whole new world for me even if less than 1% is completed.

Jeez, I do ramble don't I. More later.

600 things to do before I die

This young lady puts me to shame. Not only does she have more stuff to do on her list but she posts on a regular basis. Oh the humanity!

Anyhoo, the reason I've been a little slack on my blogging is because I'm working so hard on the show. Who'da thunk that it would take so much time in the week? So I've decided to focus my blogging here on the show until I get it to where I want to be, if that makes any sense. In other words, I'm going to let you guys see how I'm making it as a gen-you-wine type media personality.

Oh yeah, I got plans, you betcha. I am thinking plenty big about it and I promise you that you will be amazed and awed by the plans I got. In posts to come I'll be revealing my plans to make it.

I'm gonna be a wheel someday, to quote the song.

Stay tuned viewers. Here's what I have so far.

  • A new domain name. I'm not telling you what it is yet because it's not done.
  • A mailing list - in fact I'll be offering you a chance to sign up for updates to this blog but wait till you see what I have to offer the viewers of the show.
  • I'll be offering tutorials on how to make your web videos more watchable. You learn as I learn.
Oh my you have absolutely no idea how excited about this. I'll let you know soon what's going down.

Three Goal Setting Tips That Will Change Your Life

Three Goal Setting Tips That Will Change Your Life

Posted using ShareThis

As I was cruising the net looking for life list related information I came across this article. If you want to start a list of your top 100 life goals (or more, or less), a good way to get started is to know how to set a good goal in the first place.

Roughly, the three goal setting tips go a little like this:

1. Where are you going?

Basically the act of writing out your top 100 life goals. It may take you a few minutes, it may take you a week but it's important to get it done. The good thing about writing a life list is that you don't ever have to "finish" it. You can keep writing and adding items up to the very last day you walk on this earth. I don't write that to seem maudlin... I mean use that list of 100 life goals to live, not simply to read.

2. Let's get specific.

Gotta admit, I haven't been exactly on the money with this one. Essentially, it means taking the easier ones and making plans for them, if not going out and doing them anyway. Be as anal retentive as you can without being to big an a-hole to yourself about it. Don't plan yourself into not reaching that goal.

Then, as your list gets smaller, do the same thing with the more difficult items. One thing I have to add here... put a date on that sucker! Pick a date and a time that you'll have it done! Okay, I'm done yelling.

3. It's in the want to, you'll find the how to

To me this means that you must find some reasons to do the things you want to do. I'm convinced that's the reason many people aren't really happy when they get the things they think they want. They don't have good reasons.

I once read somewhere, I don't remember which blog or website it was that if you can find twenty reasons to achieve a goal you have made a great start. If you can find fifty or a hundred? There's no stopping you. So find those reasons if you want your top 100 life goals to become a list of your already finished life goals.

New Video

Hi guys,
There's a new video at Any comments or criticisms would be really appreciated.
Also, do you think I should begin looking into getting a domain name for this site?
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it.

Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday! A very happy day indeed. Today marked the 44th anniversary of my birth or the 16th anniversary of my 27th birthday (ha!)

The only regret I have is that I waited so long to decide to do the things I want to do before I die.

By the way, there will be some great changes here. You'll be able to help make this site a great one. Look for a new newsletter sign up form and video documentation of the things I want to do. Stay tuned!

The Case Of The Escaped Slave

Well dagnabit...

I started another item on the list, since it would take some time for me to complete the eliminating debt one. I was walking around Barnes & Noble in Mira Mesa the other day and I thought "Screw it, I might as well pick up something from the Barnes & Noble Classics rack." So I picked up "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe and started reading it and got really interested in it... got to the part where Eliza escapes across the frozen Ohio river...

...and I lost the book.

I try not to swear a lot, 'coz I'm learning to communicate without having to resort to profanity but the F-bombs fell like rain that day. I remember that I left it at Starbucks and figured that someone would put it in the back or in the Lost and Found or something and nobody did. Dang, dang dang... Flock, flock flock...

It's okay people. I'll get another copy but I was really getting into it.

By the way, I'm sorry that I haven't been posting as much. The show has really been taking up a lot of my time and this surprises me because I don't consider it such a huge box 'o talent anyways. But I want to continue because I feel that there are small improvements being made with each episode.

I'll keep you posted and I'll post more. Promise.

President Barack Obama

We should all be proud. In a nation that has used a holy book to condone slavery, we have elected the first African American President of the United States of America. Yes there are people who are not happy that their candidate lost but as Americans, we should all celebrate.

Even if your party lost, congratulate yourselves people. We have matured as a nation.

Make Your Voice Heard!

Tomorrow is a historic day for this country. For the first time in history, we Americans will have either an African American or a woman in either the first or second highest offices of the USA. I have my opinion on who should be our representative, you have yours. I don't care who you vote for, just vote!

BTW, Despite all the time I'm spending on the show, I'll be starting on a new item on the list. I'll keep you posted.
