P3 Project: Day 38 of 1400 - Into the Unknown

I've heard the argument. It's not an uncommon one. Battle of the sexes, War of the Roses. The age old fight for not dominance, but to communicate and coexist together. The fights take many forms, a missed call or a secretive text. Sometimes, it's a full blown war due to a simple lack of communication and all of the messy, dirty conversations and arguments that stem from it. It's all the same. But I feel that something needs to be said regarding this battle:

Fellas, we are not equipped to win this war. Sorry to tell you all this, but it's a simple fact of life. Why?

Because we are not capable of sharing what we think, good, bad or indifferent to the opposite sex. And truth be told, this entire war is our fault.

I will take your questions now.

P3 Project: Day 32 of 1400 - All Falls Down

This is a day for what seems to be violent change. Even now, as I write this, I know that parts of my world are evolving and changing, some for the good. Others for the bad. However, I wish that I could say I had some control over any of this.If any of the things happening around me were my fault, I could find solace in the fact that as a rock tossed into a pond causes ripples that affect the surface of the still water, so must I always be aware that my actions affect all those around me. But remember, the stone still sinks to the bottom. But this is not the case. I am simply a leaf on the surface on this pond and I am going to have to learn to let go and relinquish control if I am to stay afloat...

Even if it kills me.

P3 Project: Day 31 of 1400 - Progress Involves Risk

So it's been said that there is nothing more satisfying than the completion of a goal. I'm not sure about the satisfaction factor but I do know that I feel as though a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. But, as nice as it feels to have that weight removed, there is still work to be done, things that need to be accomplished. So, to all those who don't know, I have a car. Why was there no big triumphant post about it? Well there's much more to the story than just that.

Come inside, it's raining out here and I'll tell you all about it...

P3 Project: Day 25 of 1400 - Family Matters and Bitter/Sweet

Well, this post is also late but with all of the stuff crammed into it, it's going to be a very, very long post because I have to update three whole days worth of information as well as some... insight that I had into somethings.

First things first. Rosetta Stone sucks, P90x sucks, this project is painful. Mentally and Physically. However, good medicine tastes bitter so suck it up, Kevin and press on.

...Or at least that's what I'd expect myself to say to myself... oh well. On to the updates!

P3 Project: Day 21 of 1400 - In memoriam and Even in Darkness

So, yesterday a co-worker of mine passed away. He went in his sleep, peacefully but it doesn't change the fact that he's gone. We weren't exactly friends but I respect him enough to give him a mention in today's post. So, with that being said:

Donnie T. Adamson,
Venit mors pro omnibus in tempore. Ora quod possumus omnes consumentur necessaria qui paratus est
Requiescant in pace et sit animi et animas omnium recessit modis inuenit misericordiam et remissiónem amplexu Dei

Now, with that being said, I guess it's time for the actual posting, huh...

P3 Project: Day 18 of 1400 - Waiting Takes A Long Time

I can't take it anymore!

I'm so fed up with waiting that I'm gonna explode! I hate this game but I have to play it. I've been waiting for someone to handle something regarding the last piece needed for my car and I'm being stonewalled at every turn. I can't move forward because I can't make anymore forward progress without this integral piece.

And the thing that's pissing me off is that everyone wants me to jump immediately when asked to do something, and I try to be johnny-on-the-spot and yet with my shit, people are dragging their asses.

I'm gonna drag their asses through barbed wire if they don't get the lead out...

:takes a deep breath and exhales: Okay, on to the weekend recap!

P3 Project: Day 14 of 1400 - Temperature Control 2 [Boiling Points]

We'll start with the venting of pressure first and then we'll get into the reason behind the pressure. I've just about had it with a lot of people and their bloody opinions of me and what I'm doing, what I've done and how I'm going to do things in the future. I'm tired of not being able to make the simplest of things happen when other people are allowed to make me feel inferior, like a heel, like everything in the universe is my fault, like I'm a disappointment (which, by the way is the single strongest thing that you can say to me or the worse things I can hear in your voice) or generally make me feel like shit. Listen, I do a great job kicking myself. I do not need your help kicking me when I'm doing it myself. Seriously. And now for the inevitable question that some poor unsuspecting bastard is going to ask me...

"Why are you getting so upset?" Simple question, right? Only if you want to hear the answer.
