TMI Tuesday #73

Heavy is the head that wears the crown…

If you are self-isolating, under lockdown orders, or quarantined, what is your main daily activity? 

Ever since the lockdown started, I’ve been staying up late and waking up around 2 in the afternoon. I’ve always been a night owl, but this time it was my intention to wake up late. As soon as I wake up, I come downstairs to the kitchen to drink a tall glass of water and check on the kid and my mother. After that, I’d light a cigarette and contemplate life, take a shower and have my first meal of the day. I’d do some chores and if I’d get lazy, I lie on my bed and talk to friends or read. At around 5:00 pm, I’d set-up in the balcony, take a selfie, write or pursue some of my projects. Once it gets dark, I’d continue in my room and stay in there until the kid and my mother are back in their room. I practice distancing even to my daughter. As I’ve said, I’m the one designated to go out when it’s needed and who knows what I could bring back after that. It’s tough but that is the responsible thing to do. 

My other activities include TV, cooking, and if it gets tough, I’d open up a cold bottle of beer. And oh, let’s not forget about porn! Hahaha!

Would you rather be alone for the rest of your life or always be surrounded by annoying people? 

I don’t mind this, both are part of life. To live life alone is not living at all and the same thing with living annoyed, scornful, and angry. I don’t understand people who choose loneliness because of annoyance. The real key in life is understanding how things work and navigate yourself to it. Life is volatile and imperfect, think of it like a bumpy plane ride with a bad crew. Just because it sucks doesn’t mean you should open the hatch and jump off the plane. Learn to manage your discontent and see the silver lining. 

Would you rather never use social media sites/apps again or never watch another movie or TV show?

I do mind this one, as a blogger let’s be real, we thrive on social media. While I will admit that it can be toxic, I’d urge you to practice and promote responsible socmed etiquette. The idea is to influence not criticize, remember not to look for a change in others but a change in yourself. With that out of the way, I find myself having time to watch more TV these days. Community is on Netflix and I’m having a blast. I’ve been wanting to watch that show for a while.

Would you rather live in a utopia as a normal person or in a dystopia but you are the supreme ruler?

Big systems (like being a supreme leader) often rely on optimization to function. A small deviation will often cause an optimized system to a halt. It relies on a perfect set of conditions to operate thus, imperfections could thwart it with ease. I would enjoy the challenge but it is futile to do so. To answer the question, I’d choose a normal person. Heavy is the head that wears the crown. 

Are humans better at creation or destruction?

Destruction. Duh, ever read Golding’s Lord of the Flies? To be honest, this is why I don’t favor authenticity over self-made. What would we be without any form of rule, law or maxim? Best to think of Batman, he ain’t nice and Clark is even more human than he is. His brutal and cold nature speaks for itself. Vowing not to kill is the only thing that separates him from being the villain. We all have a fire that rages inside us screaming destruction. It is a test of a man to temper that fire without extinguishing it. 

Bonus: Would you rather find your true love or a suitcase with five million dollars inside?

Five fucking million dollars baby! Screw love and fuck feelings. I’d make the best version of myself and let love find me for once.

  1. How odd is it that I find that it is hard for me to answer some of these questions? The one I struggle with is the bonus question. My initial reaction was like yours, FIVE MILLION bring it on!! Yet my wisdom kicks in and says now wait just one minute, are you so sure? I know love, the deep gut wrenching don’t want to go a day without you kind of love. I have experienced it more than once. I have also lost it all and am living with the scar of what that kind of love does. In the end I know that having all kinds of money only solves superficial problems, and once people know you have that kind of cash laying around you become the bank to some. Most only wanting to be near you because of what they can get out of you. No, no thanks. I chose love. Because even if I lose it all, it can never be taken away, I will always have it. I choose to be happy because I know that I am loved for me, for who I am not because of what I have. Let me fall in love, let me see the world through someone else’s eyes and let me become emotionally rich, that is my answer. I guess I really am just a hopeless romantic. Stay safe and keep writing!

  2. It is easy for us to destroy. We see it, we complain about, we find a way to destroy it. As for your other question. Love of 5 million dollars. If I could have my family and 5 million dollars great. Because we have so many different definitions of love. I would not want to loose out on 5 million dollars because someone I think I love does not even agree on what love is. However if the question was 5 million dollars or happy. I’d pick happy all day.

  3. 1. Interesting. Thanks for the deets. Strange times in deed. in the house with family yet not able to really live with them. But it is what you have to do to keep them safe.

    2. WOW!!! Yes. This needs to be flashed in front of all people everyday when they wake up. Right before we all receive our mandatory massages. Massage does wonders for the mind not just the body.

    3. Loooove Community. You’d probably enjoy Parks ‘n’ Recs too.

    4. me too, normal person

    Bonus: Ahahahaha! Yep.

    Take care, Wishing you and your family well.
