Let’s be honest, you’re going to be judged. You’re going to judge people. Either accidentally or on purpose, it’s going to happen. Unfortunately the entire idea of never judging anyone is just very unrealistic.
The important thing to remember is that whatever it is that separates you from anyone else is completely inconsequential. To a point of course. While I will decide for myself who I think is worth spending my time and emotion on by what type of person they are, it is necessary to remember that everyone should have an equal playing field. Sex, race, disability, religion, musical taste, whatever, these things mean nothing to me when I meet you. I am going to judge for myself if you are a good person or not by how you present yourself and the choices you make.
Being a black guy that says that most white guys are racist makes you just as racist as a white guy who thinks all black people are thieves. Being a woman who thinks all guys are pigs makes you no better than a guy who thinks all woman are sluts. The list goes on and on.
The double standard has to stop.
Are there racist white people? Yes. Are there black thieves? Yes. Are there slutty woman? Yes. Are there guys who treat woman like shit? Yes. All of these things exist. What you have to remember is that is not their race/sex ect. that made them this way, it is THEM. You as a person have a choice. I as a man CAN treat a woman like shit BUT it would not be because I am a man, it would be because I am an asshole.
I am ok with the generalization that all assholes suck. That is perfectly fine. But lets get it straight. All guys aren’t assholes, all women aren’t sluts, all gays aren’t feminine, all christians don’t hate gays, all muslims aren’t suicide bombers. Ect.
Judge me, i’m cool with that, it’s going to happen. But judge me on the choices I make, not on my skin, sex, sexual orientation, or religion. Because that person could be the nicest person on the planet and could treat you amazingly. If you go in with preconceived notions of who this person is you are wasting who they really are.
I love to know your thoughts. Please leave them in the comment section below.

In case you're wondering why I haven't been posting it's because I recently got an EMAIL from Google letting me know that since my views were inconsistent they would be shutting down my Adsense account therefore making this blog unable to be monotized. So obviously I kinda lost the drive to keep blogging but i was wondering, do you guys want me to keep going because if enough people will keep reading this than I will keep going but if it's just me reading it haha then i'll probably quit. Let me know guys. Love yah

Wanted to let you guys know that i've been really busy writing essays, recording music and a ton of other stuff. I know I posted about having a couple interviews and they both went really well! I should be getting a call on Friday letting me know what's up. I don't have much else to talk about so I will update tomorrow. Here is a random video for your viewing pleasure.

I had a great time at the Boyce Avenue show last night, it was one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. The lead singer was funny and had an amazing voice. It seems that as good things have I feel like good karma has started to catch up with me. Today I had an interview with Dollar Tree that went well AND tomorrow I have an interview with Guitar Center. I haven't felt this relieved in a long time. I'm hoping all the hard work I've put into job searching will finally pay off. Wish me luck guys!

Her: "What's your point?"
Me: "You do realize i'm a guitarist right?
Her: "Yeah, so?"
Me ". . ."
Me: "I'm just gonna let you sit and think about this for a while"
Her ":/ ok. . ."

So I was feeling a bit low on inspiration so I decided to watch some videos by Boyce Avenue, they are most famous for their cover songs on youtube and I hadn't checked on them in a long time and I found they had a ton more videos and they all sound so much better than their old videos. Then I checked out their new original stuff and found out that these guys are so much better than I ever imagined. SO me and a friend are going to see them live tomorrow night and usually shows help me jump start my creative process and I can't wait to see them. Here is a cover they did of a Michael Jackson song, wether or not you like MJ you should check it out. Thanks guys for all the support and stuff yesterday by the way. Have a great day!

Being that I lost my job quite a while ago, I've gotten into the habit of trying to find ways to make money without finding a job, unfortunately this isn't quite as easy as it sounded when I thought of it. I started like most people, I backed up all my DVD's and CD's to my computer and sold them all, I started finding random shit around the house I could sell on Ebay. Right now my biggest source of income is donating plasma, you can donate twice a week and my clinic gives about 60 bucks a week which is better than nothing. That and some surveys my local mall does for 75 bucks are my major source of income at the moment. Some friends suggest that I sign up for clinical trials for new medicines, and donate sperm. I'm trying to avoid those while I look for a job.

Sitting in Starbucks, drinking a Black Eye. SO MUCH CAFFEINE. It's a cup of coffee with two espresso shots for those who don't know. Now you know. But on to different news.
Tuesday, February 15, 2011
So I would like to start off by saying that someone messaged me yesterday who will not be named and told me that if I kept posting stuff about being depressed they would un-follow and not read my blog anymore. To them I say go ahead. I really don't care. This is a personal blog and if you don't like what i'm posting then leave. No skin off my nose.
Now onto normal stuff. So yesterday sucked just as much as I thought it would up to a certain point. As most of you have read we have had a lot of problems with our water at the house and our well had gotten really messed up. We called someone up to come fix it and they spent the day, V-Day of course, fixing it. When they were done my mom asked how much it would be for fixing it and the guy said "It's on me, happy valentines day!" and left. So as cynical and jaded as I am I guess i'm wrong. Maybe humanity isn't absolutely horrible, and maybe these days aren't as bad as I make them out to be.
So, lets do a new thingy. Lets do a question of the day.
What is something someone has done for you that maybe gave you more faith in humanity or vice-versa? Leave your replies in the comments below.

Well, it's the day. The big V-Day. The big corporate holiday where they try to convince us that if we are single we are worthless and if we are in a relationship that we need to love our significant other more than usual today! Today makes me sick. It really does. This is my 21st V-day alone and maybe i'm just jaded, maybe i'm just cynical. I don't care either way, this day makes me feel horrible just because I can't seem to find anyone to be with. then you have your friends who tell you "make it about your family and friends! It doesn't have to be about a relationship!" Well, yeah, except for everywhere you turn there is a V-day commercial, a couple holding hands, a romantic movie, a billboard, and it all just makes me want to vomit. Did the have to do this? Did they have to pick one day out of the year to make single people feel like they are less important than our infatuated counterparts? I had plans for today, plans for friends and family and such but pretty much everything has been broken and i'm going to spend most of the day alone. The grand finale will be getting drunk at a wing bar that has dollar beers tonight. I told somebody this and their reply was "I'm sure you'll meet someone there!" Jesus Christ, really? This kind of annoying optimism makes me sick. It's not that I hate being positive, I just enjoy being realistic. Nobody is going to pick up the 21 year old, jobless, drunk guy at the bar. It's fine I guess, i'm sure in a few years i'll be out celebrating today with a significant other and I'll try to be positive and optimistic with friends of mine who are in the same boat that i'm in now. Everything goes in cycles in a way. So maybe i'm just negative, cynical, jaded, but thats just how I am today. Tough break.

I am happy, I am happy, I am happy, I am happy. One of my friends told me I could get over being depressed if I just tried to be postive and repeated this to myself over and over. I don't know if i'm not doing it enough but it doesn't seem to be working. I usually don't like to talk about being depressed just because people either think you are being over dramatic, whining, or whatever but fuck it. This is my blog and if I'm depressed I'm gonna talk about it.

Classes are getting kinda of ridiculous, I have a 600 word biography on Robert Hayden due soon and with it I have to include 2, 600 word essays about a critique of him. So, 1800 words all together. Besides that I guess everything else is a breeze, reading poetry and such. Not to hard for me but tedious of course. Creative Writing is annoying just because class just feels like High School, it's a lot less stressful than most classes but a little demeaning at times. We spent our entire last class playing a game that had nothing to do with writing at all. I guess it's better than three six hundred word papers though.

Next Monday is Valentines Day. I would really rather drink bleach than go through that day. It will be my 21st without a date. I know every single person complains but seriously it's sickening. I have to put up with being the third wheel everywhere I go anyway, so lets make an entire day where I can feel like shit! Ugh, it's so self indulgent, people actually think the day means something when really it's just an excuse for some companies to make a shit ton off of idiot guys who think that the rose will make their girls give it up and idiot girls who think that a box of chocolates means that he loves them. I guess i'm just jaded and cyclical, I'm sure if I was in a relationship I would probably get caught up in all the bullshit too. At least I can admit it.

My review of The Social Network has finally been posted here. Please check it out and let me know what yah think. While you are their please follow the review page and leave comments tell me how I can improve or movies/books you would like reviewed.
I spend a ton of time using the internet at my local Starbucks. The internet isn't great but my sister is the managaer and I know everyone that works here. It's great to just sit somewhere and have a good coversation and get some work one at the same time. Plus the drinks are great.
I figured that as much as I love writing about myself every day, it lacks substance and any kind of real information accept for the fact that everyone reading this is ok and we all have shitty stuff happen to us from time to time. But I digress, I have started a movie review blog at seankennyreviews.blogspot.com and I would sincerely appreciate it if you would follow/look at the new reviews. I should have reviews for The Social Network and The Kings Speech up later today. Thanks guys. Peace.
