Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

It took almost dying to realize that aging isn’t a curse. It’s a privilege.

Playlist pieces

I’ve been thinking about the things I’ll never learn.
I’m here to stay.


On my knees I think clearer.

"Everything counts a little more than we think..."

Sam Bisbee

slated in stuff at 2:37 am

found this song, You Are Here by Sam Bisbee. go check out the truly wonderful video and song at www.sambisbee.com. i know he’ll be found all over the place soon… ‘reminds me of a cross of ‘Postal Service’ and ‘the Eels’ and ‘Jimmy Eat World’ (—though significantly softer) and good stuff. *happy* to have found him.

another new favorite is ‘Saves the Day’:

“ever since i first saw you, standing in the black frozen night, ive been blind // but im driving in the dark towards you, not stopping til i catch the sun light in my eyes // nothing’s left to hide”

“i hope, your majesty, that you like your position. // i’ll do everything i can to keep you by my side, and i’ll stare off through the darkness to find us a kingdom // just kiss me before I go // ...i’ll have to walk a thousand miles just to find the ground deserving of your feet…”

a few deserved acknowledgements for some not-as-new favorites before i go:

Death Cab For Cutie’:

“when i see you, i really see you upside down // but my brain knows better.. it picks you up and turns you around // turns you around, turns you around // so if you feel discouraged that there’s a lack of color here, please don’t worry, love—it’s really bursting at the seams, absorbing everything // ...this is fact—not fiction // for the first time in years”

Third Eye Blind’:

“i’d know what to do if i just knew what’s coming // i would change myself if i could.. i’d walk with my own people, if i could find them // and i would say that i’m sorry to you // i’m sorry to you, but i don’t want to call you // —but then i want to call you cuz i don’t want to crush you // —but i feel like crushing you
and it’s true, i took for granted you were with me // i breathe by your looks
and you look right through me”

Vertical Horizon’:

“there’s no point in running ‘less you run with me // it’s half the distance through the open door, before you cut me down—again // let me introduce you to the end … // i will soar until the wind whips me down; leaves me beaten on unholy ground // so tired now of paying my dues; i start out strong, but then i always lose // it’s half the distance before you leave me behind ..it’s such a waste of time

here i slave inside of a broken dream, forever holding on to splitting seams // so take your piece (/ peace) and leave me alone to die // i don’t need you to keep my faith alive

i know now what trouble can be, and why it follows me so easily // it’s half the distance through the open door before you shut me down—again // so let me introduce you to the end”

and the one that’s still kept its place in my head as of late: ‘Lifehouse’:

“don’t give up on me yet.. don’t forget who i am // i know i’m not there yet, but don’t let me stay alone”

now, ‘going to bed.

my MT-Do rank

slated in stuff at 5:53 pm

heh. look: even an MT survey.. nice and brief.

2. Dan Black Belt

The path that lies behind you is now longer than the path that lies ahead. But, the path ahead as a MT-Ka is a narrower road, one that is harder to walk. By now, you are probably aware of your limitations, and you strive daily to become better.

Take the MT-Do test

that’s really very gratifying.. though really quite off, methinks.. i guess i’m getting through alright, but black belt? really? only two bars though. i guess that’s reasonable.

x.personality: idealist, mastermind

slated in stuff at 10:30 am

All Idealists (NFs) share the following core characteristics:

  • Idealists are enthusiastic, they trust their intuition, yearn for romance, seek their true self, prize meaningful relationships, and dream of attaining wisdom.
  • Idealists pride themselves on being loving, kindhearted, and authentic.
  • Idealists tend to be giving, trusting, spiritual, and they are focused on personal journeys and human potentials.
  • Idealists make intense mates, nurturing parents, and inspirational leaders.

Idealists, as a temperament, are passionately concerned with personal growth and development. Idealists strive to discover who they are and how they can become their best possible self--always this quest for self-knowledge and self-improvement drives their imagination. And they want to help others make the journey. Idealists are naturally drawn to working with people, and whether in education or counseling, in social services or personnel work, in journalism or the ministry, they are gifted at helping others find their way in life, often inspiring them to grow as individuals and to fulfill their potentials.

Idealists are rare, making up no more than 8 to 10 percent of the population. But their ability to inspire people with their enthusiasm and their idealism has given them influence far beyond their numbers.

The four types of Idealists are:

Healers (INFP) | Counselors (INFJ) | Champions (ENFP) | Teachers (ENFJ)

thespark.com personality test: (i've turned up EXPERIMENTER twice in my life... the 5+ other times i've taken it: mastermind. yes. i've taken it much.. i like the result to be consistent...)


( Submissive Introverted Abstract Thinker )

You are a MASTERMIND (SIAT). You can be silent and withdrawn, but behind your reserved exterior lies an active mind that allows you to analyze situations and come up with creative, unexpected solutions. Normal people call this ?scheming.? Don?t learn German.

Anyway, your sense of style and originality are your strengths, and people will respect your judgment once they get to know you. If you learn to be a little more personable, you could be a great leader--you?ve definitely got the ?vision? thing down. Just make sure all the plotting you do behind those eyes of yours is healthy.

Famous masterminds in television: Dr. Claw, The Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and Montgomery Burns.
