Mercy, Oh Mercy! Where for out thou Mercy?!

I am here my little devils. Just been rather busy getting the restaurant in order amongst other things. I have done some photography lately with my new camera. It’s quite amazing to get photographs that are so clear.

I’ve done some singing and bass playing lately as well to get on track with my music and be able to jam with my boyfriend.

Youtube – I will be more active on. Why? Because it’s my creative outlet. And sometimes I’m too damn lazy to type shit out.

Biggest Pet Peeve: When someone comes to your house and asks “Do you have a bathroom?” I feel that I have to restrain myself from saying ” No we use the lawn.” -_-

Dead  Like Me should have had more seasons than just two.

Mental Debate: To return to college or just become a college drop out. :O Why on earth would you wanna drop out of college young lady? Well hmmm…let’s see… I’m already 37K in debt to college loans for a degree that is pretty much as useful as a penny when you go to the gas station. I also have a business loan out. The business of which I’m going to be opening soon. My hands on opportunities are far greater than the classes I’m taking. Not only that, the educational system for my field is just not all there. I feel like instead of getting a 37K education I’m getting a 2K education. But that’s currently something else that’s on my mind.

Relationship: My boyfriend and I have been together a little over a year now, and we’re still going strong! Glad we decided to move in together and begin our journey. We’ve had our fights and all but we’re still by each others side and have great times.

 

Have you guys ever had that “eye awakening” moment? Like, dude seriously. It’s just better do this crap myself because the people around me are bozos moment? Yeah… I’m having a lot of those.

 

People always tell me I have a face that could scare an undertaker when I’m walking around. Apparently I have this natural snarl to me. Hm… it comes in handy. Pro: I don’t have to deal with idiots. Con: Not very friendly.

 

Well, my devils. I just got cable again. And this is my week kinda-sorta “off” before we continue our journey to open the restaurant. I’m going to enjoy it! Even though I have worries on the brain.

Be sure to keep a look out for my new videos and new videos from Unsuccessful Entertainment.

I thank you for your internet stalking and hope that you have a horrendous day.

A Day Out & More (Photography & Blog)

Hello Creeps.

I have to say, I’ve enjoyed the somewhat decent weather lately that allows me to go out and about with my love and capture photographs. I have been very stressed lately looking for a co-signer that not only is willing to do such, but also be able to qualify. I’m certain that I have two people available but they are leery about it. Only because of my age. They are flesh and blood, and they are discriminating against my age! I will have it settled promptly though. I have a feeling this snag will be over promptly! And for the better!

My music festival is coming along great! What I hate is that I’m working in a small time frame! I despise working on things in a small time frame because it has to be put together at a quick rate! But, I know I can make this a success. My boyfriend has had experience in creating festivals first hand. So between the two of us, we can make this a reality! This music festival will feature my band, Fatal Fury, as the headliners! It will be our first appearance! Hopefully, we will raise funds and awareness to my ice cream venture! That’s the main reason for this festival! Also, I want to make this festival a Yearly festival sponsored by my ice cream shop! These are my goals and I can assure you I will most definitely achieve them! So far, we have come up with the name: Dissident Overdrive Music Festival. This festival isn’t just a fundraiser, but it helps promote local talents/bands and businesses. It’s about the strength in a community and it is the FIRST festival to ever take place in my area. Talk about pressure to make it great! So far, I have 3 choices for venues that I have to call tomorrow to book the date. Second step, is to pass around the flyers and raise awareness! My heart and soul is going both into this festival and my family’s business. The business will help my family in their successes! Co-signer will happen as I’m offering it as an investment into the company and offer payment for their time as a temporary co-signer. 🙂

Today, my love and I had the pleasure of strolling down the street for some lovely soda pop and took a few pictures. We found some old ruins by one of the cemeteries that we frequent. It was a lovely but FREEZING stroll as we have a winter snow warning in April. (Welcome to New York!) For some reason, when I hear songs with a groovy beat I feel like dancing like the go-go dancers in the 60s. You know, when it was freestyle dancing and not hoochie mc hooch hooch. Anyways, below are some photographs (unedited!) that we took today!

Why I left religion

2

You were such a good little girl when you were younger! What happened to you?!

– A question I get asked by the religious side of my family every day because I left the religion.

When I was a young girl, I did what I was told. Attended church school, sang in the church choir, acted within the pageants and went to confession. I didn’t feel comfortable with any of it. At a young age, I saw that I didn’t agree with it. For some reason, I saw how people acted. Being the quiet person I am, I’m observant of the people around me. Their behavior and how they treat each other. The same teachers at church school were gossiping and bullying people they called “friends”. They believed they were perfect in the realm of their God.

When I was about 13 or 14, I started questioning their ways. Why are these people treating each other so horrible? Why are they judging people and pushing the bible on people? Wasn’t faith something that people are supposed to find on their own? Why are these people not being accountable for their wrong doing? Why is Satan bad when he’s the angel of individualism?

In high school, I started researching the history of the oh so lovely religion that was being pushed upon me. Paganism was the forefather. And this religion stole from them. Making the pagans seem like horrible people on the planet. I just didn’t understand the hatred coming from this religion.

I’m currently in my early twenties. I don’t know what to call myself when it comes to a religious point. I believe more in nature and pagan mythologies than the bible. I believe in treating others how you want to be treated within this world. I believe in helping others instead of spreading hatred. I may not agree with every view or lifestyle of everyone I meet on the planet, but that’s not a reason to hate someone. It’s lovely to see people stand with their views and lifestyle instead of conforming because of the bible pushers and peers.

As I’ve stated in a previous blog entry, I’m pro-choice to life. Each individual on this planet has a right to feel comfortable with who they are. Those that spread hate and try to be perfect for a dictator in the sky – Are bullies. To quote my recent Facebook status:

The religious people in my family have guts. They claim they’ll help someone because they are a human being, but won’t if the person turns out to be gay. I have friends that are gay or bi, and I hate the disrespect they receive. Since when is who a person loves the decision of the world? How would we like it if we had gays attack us for being straight and calling it wrong or appalling? How would you like to be treated that way? I know I wouldn’t. So why should I treat a fellow human being like an alien because they decide to love the same gender? Logic? I think not. And my religious side of my family still doesn’t see why I won’t join their band wagon. -_- Ha! I’m more generous and kind to others without following “God” than you are following the bible!

I left religion because I saw the hate it brought upon the world. How they want everyone to be the same. I’m a spiritual person. No ones spirit should be bullied in any form by anyone on this planet. People aren’t perfect. We do make mistakes and we can choose to learn from them and become a better human being, or ignore them and fall on our faces. Satan didn’t make us do it. God isn’t punishing us. We as individuals have free will. We made decisions. Some good, some poor. But in the end, it’s what we take from it and what we do with the gained knowledge that shapes us as a human.

I keep getting told because I don’t follow the bible I won’t go to heaven. If heaven is where these group of religious extremists are – I don’t want to be there anyway.

I have friends, customers to the shop, youtube viewers/commenters, of many different religions and views. We can talk like adults and respect each others worlds. We are all human with marvelous brains that get suppressed by extremism. My previous blog discusses how I’m against extremism. I guess, the extremism I was seeing within the religion pushed me away. I didn’t feel at home with following God. I’m not saying all Catholics, Christians etc. are bad. Or whatever religion you are. I left because I can’t stand the hate, the greed, the manipulation.

To hate someone is to negatively care about them. And, I don’t care. Not in a bad way mind you. But, in a manner of — I don’t care if a person is a different color, religious preference, political standing, gay/straight/bi, etc. It’s the person’s CHARACTER that matter.

I left religion because I felt like an outsider that didn’t belong. It didn’t warm my heart nor shape me in anyway. I am now a young woman in my early twenties with a kind heart and generous nature to those in need. When you have nothing as well as others on this planet in the same struggle as you – why would you leave them behind because your “bible” says it’s wrong? I saw many contradictions in that book when I attempted to read it, compared to a book full of pagan views and/or rules (which ever you wish to call them) are more straight forward and to the point. Take account for your wrongdoing. Make things right. etc.

Religious people always tell me to treat others how I want to be treated – yet they spread hate and agony to those that are different from them. I treat them with respect – but get bullied in return. They wonder why I will never pray nor talk religion with them. Why? To get bullied and feel so small in the world? I have learned to choose my battles. You can’t get in through a thick-headed extremist that life is about living as a whole with the world rather than separate, miserable, and manipulated.

Assumptions

2

Not entirely sure if I discussed my views upon assumptions yet or not. But, I will more in depth within this post. Here is the definition of assumptions:

| Assumptions: A thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof. |

Now, I am a person that hates assumptions. Why waste time assuming when you can just be upfront and know the answer? When you go around assuming — You go around causing useless worry, drama, arguments and more. Have an issue? Confront the person. It’s as simple as that. Confrontation doesn’t always have to be a big blow out. It can be a decent conversation between individuals. But right away, people like to jump the gun.

When assuming you make your life over all more stressful.
Why?

Good question.
I don’t know why one would want to add on the stress.

Blood & Guts,
Mercy
