Are you that Crab in a Pot?

Are you that Crab in a Pot?

Have you ever noticed how crabs that are caught in a net, dangling from the end of the bait, about to be cooked in a pot, hold on to each other for dear life? I know you have noticed. You can’t help but notice. Well, they grab each other by the legs and by the claws and they pull and pull until they damn near break each other’s legs off. In some cases, they do break off the legs and claws. In extreme cases, they kill each other. I know you are wondering where this is going, right? Well, if you know me, you know I am fitting to tell you!

Are you a crab? I am not talking about literally a crab, but figuratively speaking. Are you that person that sees your friend, associate, or maybe a rival, getting ahead and you hate on them, sabotage them, or make their accomplishment seem like it is mediocre? In other words, you young folk, may refer to this “crab behavior” as being a “hater”.

Well, I say, don’t hate the player, hate the game. What God Has For You is For You! No man, woman, crab, or hater can take that away. Anyway, back to my crabs, they pull and hold on, but failing to realize that the more they hold on to what the other crab has, the more they put themselves closer to the boiling pot. Humph, I think all of us have been a crab at some point in our lives; however, the crabs that miss the boiling pot are the ones who realize that they must just LET IT GO or Kick the ‘ish out of those CRABS holding on!  I’m just saying!

Rhyme without Reason

Rhyme without Reason

Have you ever listened to something that had no Rhyme or no Reason, but because it was so interesting you just had to keep listening?  I don’t know about you but Rhyme without Reason has no place in time.  In addition, you have to have a good frame of mind, just to listen to such non-sense or at least this is my two cents.

Just listen to the rhythm of the words that I have coming during this state of my mind.  Some people think that it is easy to do, to get your thoughts across with words that are often so sublime.  

I can’t speak for others about what they know are to be true.  It would be dishonest of me to try and speak their version of the truth.  Watch your words.  Those words become your actions. You may have heard this before, which leaves it to be a fact and not just my opinion.  Keep everything that is being told to you at the forefront of your mind…just in case you need to go back and compare the Reason to that Rhyme.  

I can only sit and listen to the Rhyme and the Reason that comes from hearing your version of the truth, which makes it really hard for me to keep listening to you!  Do any of the words that I have spoken bring anyone particular to your mind? If it does, my sister/my brother, please don’t be blind.  I have imparted some knowledge on you that should have opened your eyes.  You know specifically to whom I speak of…those people who allow lies to flow like a river out of their mouths like a faulty image that is scanned through time.

Yes, Rhyme without Reason is nothing more than a lie.  It is an untruth.  It is a fabrication of the reality in which we all live.  But, we listen.  We listen attentively to the Rhyme and forget to bother trying to get the Reason.  It’s okay.   There is Rhyme and Reason to everything that people say; just listen attentively so that when it is over you are able to go back and push play.

Tattooed Impressions

Today, I finally came to a crossroads in my life.  I am leaving one opportunity to pursue another, health and family.  As I transition, I decided to put my feelings into writing.  I hope that the people that I have met in my life will have wonderfully tattooed impressions of me on their minds, as I do them!

Tattooed Reflections
In life you always find
that you will meet people of many kinds
and in a moments time
you have these beautifully tattooed impressions
of all the great memories on your mind.
In life you always find
that the ones you will miss most
and the bonds that you form
will last a life-time.
In life you always find
that there will be good
there will be bad
and there will be sad times.
In life you will always find
that the people you meet
the paths you cross
the bonds you make
the time you have sought
will be beautifully tattooed impressions
magnificently tattooed reflections
undeniably tattooed connections
that will be etched in your heart and mind for all times!

Dreams of Graduation!

You have dreams of graduation and it is finally here. Congratulations are definitely in order. However, in 2012, what happens when you graduate and your dreams become shattered because the job market is at an all time low for your profession. Seriously, you have worked for 4 to 8 years only to find yourself working in retail, fast foods, or some other market that is irrelevant to your field. This is a travesty. Who do you blame? What do you do with all that education? How do you pay back all of those loans? Is it an epidemic? Is it a crisis? Is it our reality? When will it all end?

I urge you to research the job market before you go back to school and work on those Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate degrees. Although you may not want to admit it, it is about the money! So, show me the money!!! You do not want to dedicate yourself to a field that is not going to allow you to gain any financial merit! Yes, you need to enjoy what you do! However, at the end of the day, if you are not making enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle, then the enjoyment will soon fade away.

So, with that being said, here are my suggestions for those of you ready to pursue your education in a graduate program:

1. Research the job market for your field of study (Will you have to relocate to find a job in your field? What is
the salary range?).
2. Look for in-state universities to work on your degree (it will save $$$$$).
3. Begin to network early (make those job connections prior to graduation).
4. Build your resume/curriculum vita (professional organizations, social organizations, honor societies, community
service etc.)
5. Know your worth!

I hope that this information was helpful to someone.

My Voice

I talk but the words don’t come out of my mouth. My voice goes unheard.

I whisper so I won’t be too loud but no one can hear me. Once again my voice goes unheard.

I speak to you all but all you can see are my lips moving. You don’t understand me. Yet again my voice goes unheard.

I scream. This time I scream so loud that the Earth begins to shake. I wave my hands because I need you to hear me. You all still don’t hear my screams. The Earth just continues to move.

Don’t you understand that I have a voice and I need to be heard!
