The Struggle is Definitely Real Right Now

The struggle is here, and it only gets worse from now until June. I feel I’ve spread myself too thin and put so many hands into the cookie jar. I’ve always been a “YES MAN,” but now those Yes’s are becoming too big of a burden, and I simply cannot back out from my commitments..oh boy this is gonna be hard.

A Fabulous 2013 To Me =)

Before 2013 started, I promised myself that 2013 was going to be MY YEAR, and I’m proud to say that I’ve OWNED it in so many ways =)  This statement alone sounds completely narcissist, but it’s something I want to share even if I come off as an asshole. =P

Lots of crazy stuff happened, so many ups and downs, new jobs/friendships, acceptance and started Grad School, choir and community involvement, etc. but I’m truly happy that 2013 was probably the BEST year I’ve ever experienced! =) =)  I’m really thankful for everyone who shared and made my year 2013 as something to look back on and cherish.

The future is bright, and I’m busy as always, but whatevs..Here comes 2014, and I’m runnin’ full steam ahead! =)

Anonymous asked: why do u always post stuff on facebook like you think you are the shit?

Hello Anonymous,

Honestly, I never thought I would give off the impression of posting things as if “I’m the shit.”  I just take life as it is, and if I feel like sharing something wonderful, then I get overexcited and post about it.  Whoever you may be, I feel like we have a misunderstanding about how I conduct myself.  You’re probably thinking…”Oh Great, he has a shit ton of things going on in his life, does anybody really care?”  And I get that.  I think the best solution to your question is to honestly brush it off and not make it a big deal.  I post stuff that I feel like posting.  If people like it, they’ll like it.  If not, then whatever.  NBD.  I don’t like some of the things my friends post on FB, but does that phase me?  Nope.  Keep Calm and Carry On, my friend.  AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FO DAT.

And to be honest, I’m really not the shit.  I have a lot of problems handling all of the things I’m involved in.  See the thing about being a musician/music teacher is that we (to some extent) rely on the community’s support.  We have to go that extra mile to make ourselves known.  I post some things that are relevant because I want people to be proactive in the community.  I choose the music teacher profession because I love doing what I do.  Even though I get paid 2-3 times as less than most people, I live for the struggle.  Jobs are harder to find for us.  You gotta earn your reputation just to even be considered.  To be honest, grad school is honestly tearin’ me up.  At this very moment (Friday evening), I’m spending my whole day studying and writing papers just so I can have some breathing room to enjoy my weekend.  My life is not a 9-5 workday.  I’m constantly under pressure, and yeah it fuckin’ sucks.  I’m pretty sure if I were in your shoes, I would say the same thing.  Reality bites.  Grad school is fuckin’ tough.  I need something to make myself feel better, and I feel that posting good vibes somewhat does it for me.

Whoever you are, just know that I’m not your enemy.  If you don’t like what I post, you have two options:

1.  Block and unfriend me

2.  Ignore it and move on.

It’s really simple, bud.  Don’t make the smallest things such a big deal.  Live, laugh, love.

Anonymous asked: Hello there, Tim! Are you and Krizia still together?

Hello Anonymous.  Yes Krizia and I are still together…things are going well. Unfortunately I don’t get to see her until January of next year.  It feels like a long journey, and sometimes it sucks.  But hey, you just gotta put up with it, ya know?  Gotta learn how to adjust to the long-distance relationship life, ya feel?

Thanks for asking. =)

Late night thoughts…

It hurts to just think that some people in this world are heartless. It sucks that there are people out there who get easily annoyed by your sense of optimism. There’s only a handful of people in this world who will actually give a damn about what you do in your life and what you care about most. Everyone else may see your effort as irrelevant and a waste of their time and energy. It’s a pain in the ass when you have to things find out the hard way. Oh well..that’s life, right? Not everyone is gonna like what you do or say.

This is not the Tim you’re accustomed to. Maybe cause I’m a bit ticked off at someone for not being straightforward and honest about how I handle my business, my posts, my endeavors, etc. Rather than privately message me to explain my wrongdoings and find a common ground for me to become better, you practically vent about how stupid and irrelevant the things I say on FB are. I’m generally ok when it comes to criticism, but at least tell me directly so I can be more aware. But no, you choose to take it in an unprofessional manner, and that’s no bueno. It’s okay if you don’t like what I do. I’m not perfect. I just wish people were brave enough to be straightforward. We all strive to be better people in this world. Before you go off about how stupid you think someone is, go check yourself in the mirror and re-evaluate what you believe is stupid. Your reflection might be the answer :-P

Oh well…haters gonna hate.

The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
