P3 Project: Day 10 of 1400 - Carpe Diem

Seize the day. Hold it hostage.

This is my battle cry this week. My insecurities are getting the better of me and I have to do something about them. And what better way to reassure yourself of your own personal worth than the make some BIG progress on a important project? So, with that being said, I'm going to roll a couple of posts into one big one. Anyone have an issue with that? Oh yeah, no one ever answers these questions. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

So, I (think) I have the Rosetta Stone software installed properly. All four languages.

Yup, your read that right. German, Latin American Spanish, Japanese and Farsi. Brain, prepare to be beaten.

So I'm going to probably start with Spanish as that's the one I have a vague understand of. Then Japanese and German and finish it off with a little Farsi. Tall order, but hey; I have three years to learn them in, right? The language packs are built for pretty good retention and are sworn by at NASA. Who doesn't trust NASA?

:cough cough: fakedmoonlanding :cough:
Hush you. No one asked you.

Anyway, so that is all for the Rosetta Stone thing. Now, on to the next one! Sucker Punch!

Now, before I get into how good of a movie it is, let me first give credit where credit is due. Elli had to explain part of the movie to me (a rather important part it would seem) and she did it in terms of Inception.

The girl's a prodigy.

But all in all, Sucker Punch was pretty good all things considered. Not as good as Limitless or hell, 300 for that matter (the other movie directed by Zak Snyder) but still pretty good. Worth a look see if you don't have anything to do on a Friday night.

Okay, now for the bad news. I am learning that letting to softer, more emotional side of myself out has some real consequences. There are things that I'm still learning how to deal with after not having to deal with them for five plus years. But those aren't exactly things that I'd bring up in a blog, now are they? Suffice it to say, it's another thing to add to my list of improvements. Woo-hoo... can't you hear the sarcasm.

I have to remind myself that I'm doing this project to make myself better for myself but there are times that I doubt it even myself. Am I just doing this for me or is there some other reason, some hidden, sub-conscious insecurity that I've been hiding from or hiding. Is there some soft-spoken poet inside of me, just waiting for the chance to get out? I know the answer to that, or at least I think that I do. Who knows, right? I guess this would be a good time for feed back if there were enough people to cause a good discussion about it, huh? Oh well, I guess it's just me and my thoughts again. Good night, people.


  1. The only way out of pain is through it. From someone who has spent a lot of time in the last 5 years facing a lot of things down, it's the hardest work we can ever do, but it's SO worth it. I mean, at the end is YOU. What's better than that?

  2. :bows: glad my movie nerdness is starting to pay off.

    You know there are a bunch of people behind you on this path. I am proud to be your personal cheerleader(don't you get any ideas there, kevi). Like I said the other day, the bumps you hit in the beginning show you the little stepping stones you have to get over to help finish the project. I've got your back and you know I'm always here for you.

  3. Ideas from you being my personal cheerleader... what ideas could I possib- oh. Heh Heh Heh...
