Love Being Called A Human GPS – I Only Learn Once

One day almost 12 years ago when I turned 16, I remember passing my written computer driver exam to get my first License, in Ontario it is called the G1, Graduated licensing system that Ontario put into place, and I got out of the driver examination office excited and jumping around saying I passed I passed, it was a great experience. Not even a week later I started driving around and learning from my Dad, then I went to driving school, then I obtained the G2 license. After that I started driving on my own without supervision, and it was so incredible, and I started going to places and remembering where I am going and all it took is once for me to drive somewhere and I learned it very quickly. My dad and so many others say you have a gift of being strong and recognizing directions. In the last few years, I have been called the Human GPS (Global Positioning System), and that made me feel incredible to know that people trust in me in directions. I go to a place once and I am all set. The first time I need help to get somewhere, so I resort to my GPS, but then the second, third, forth time I go, I don’t need it anymore. I also love explaining directions in detail and they love it.

It is one thing to be a passenger and one thing to be driver. I have always observed even when I am a passenger and I learned a lot quicker, but when you get to really drive, its a lot more different because your the controller of the car, steering, brakes, and everything and people trust in you to make the right judgements when changing lanes, which way to go and often times your passengers sometimes tell you where to go if your dropping someone off at home or somewhere else, and among so many things, and its really important to observe always and remember where you go. Exercise your brain and always be aware of where you are. I always do and I have success always. I remember taking a friend home once and picking her up, she explained to me once how to get there, and now I don’t need to have a GPS Anymore. I love driving and I love driving responsibly.

When I got my full license called the G license 4 almost 5 years ago, I started to develop that special drivers eye, and started developing more skills in driving, and being more experienced. As I got all that experience, I started making long trips, and gaining confidence in myself to park, to reverse park and more. It feels amazing to know that people trust in me to give directions and no one has been lost. I feel like a Human Onstar and Navigation Voice in cars. I remember one time when I was heading to Montreal many years ago, believe it or not, I memorized all the exits, towns and cities all the way to Montreal from Toronto, and people were amazed at the names I was giving out during a conversation with someone who was going to Montreal and I gave it in the right order, not scrambling it all up. It felt incredible.

I cannot even begin how much I love being called a Human GPS. It feels great. If you want to know how to keep your memory and how to get somewhere without being lost the second or third time, just always remember the surroundings, a certain building around, a store name, an intersection, remembering the left, rights, straights, All very important and create a photographic memory in your mind, and just observe very closely. Then you too will become a Human GPS. Sometimes people go somewhere 10 times and don’t remember. Take extra time to familiarize yourself with the surroundings. It always works for me. I love it.

All the best to you all! Be safe on the roads and focus while driving.

Nothing Beats The Classic Nintendo Gaming System Back in The Day – Mario Bros – Super Mario and More…

In this day in age, some people only know about The XBOX 360, Playstation’s, and WII, and among other gaming consoles now, but in my opinion and in my era, the Classic Nintendo was the best. I know a lot of people who still play classic nintendo. My favourite games were Mario Brothers, Super Mario 1-3, Duck Hunt, Rivercity Ransom, Elevator Action, Dragon Fire, Konami Games, Olympic Games, Dr. Mario, Blades of Steel and among other games that I truly loved to play for hours with my brother and cousins. Since I was the younger sibling and when I used to play with my brother, I used to be Luigi because I was the younger and I would get so mad because I am playing last hahaha. So today I remembered those days and how fun it was with playing classic video games. I don’t know if Nintendo players remember how some games did not work well until you blew into the gaming cartridge. Now that was one of the many happy moments, and I am sure a lot of people can relate. I still see people wearing belt buckles and t-shirts of classic Nintendo and among the Mario, Luigi, and other characters like Goomba, Yoshi, and everything else. I still see them in specialty stores that have t-shirts, key chains, and among other items. Its so funny whenever I see them, I think of the memories I had when I was a child.

Several weeks ago, I was at a restaurant with my friends, just enjoying a night out with each other, and I saw our waiter with a Mario Mushroom belt buckle, and at this time I didn’t really say anything, and then he came back and we talked about his belt buckle, then when he went away to a table across from ours, I said hey, when you eat the mushroom it gets bigger. The guy started to laugh, then I realized why he was laughing, turned red like a tomato and he totally misinterpreted what I was saying. He thought about something else, rather than the game on what happens to Mario after he eat the mushroom. I am sure you can figure out what that is LOL. It was so funny. The guy said I will always remember that when I wear this now. Hes like I had never had anyone tell me that before. The belt buckle was in the center and he thought something different. It was super funny and my friends started laughing so hard and it was hilarious. So I guess everyone misinterpreted what I was trying to say lol about that. We still laugh about it to this day and it will forever be remembered in our group.

Gotta love classic gaming consoles. Now its too much violence and too graphic. I just cannot come to terms to play these new gaming consoles and the games. Its not my cup of tea.

Montreal – It Is Not Goodbye – It’s See You Later – Must Part Ways For Now

There are somethings in life that one must give up to go forward in life and to achieve goals and get onto bigger things in life, and that is giving up my passion for Montreal, that I have written about in blog posts of before. Some of my friends could not believe when they saw that I was putting all that behind me. It is time to move forward and to prioritize my life, work hard to achieve my dreams, to look onto bigger and better things. I realize that Montreal will always be there and that I can go visit whenever I want to, but first thing is first to take charge of my life, get onto important things, get my career and life going. I have done a lot of thinking the last few weeks and I think it is the best decision I am making for myself. Being infatuated and in love with the whole road trip to Montreal and everything there was a distraction for me, and I decided to part ways as of today. I have been meaning to announce this for weeks now, but today I feel like it is the right time to do so. It was the hardest decision I had to make about Montreal not being my happy place anymore and doing things in my life for me from now on.

Getting my life together and doing what I want to do is the most important. My New Happy place is my future, and thinking about me and what I want in life, important things like having a job, meeting a special someone in my life who gives meaning to my life, whom I can call my best friend and someone whom I can share my life with, I want to work harder than I am now at my priorities. It was a hard decision to let go of something I truly love, but sometimes you have to set it free, which I am now. I know it is crazy to love a city this much, but its for the best for now. I will not entirely forget it because of the memories there and everything that has happened there with friends and everything else, but I need to do this for myself. I need to look after me and my future and no one else will look after me and my future but myself, nobody will knock on my door and offer me something great, no one will knock on my door and offer me money or a job. I need to knock on others doors and put my foot in the door if I want to help myself. That is how the world works. You have to go after what you want and how you want it. Reality has hit me hard the last few weeks. I am not getting any younger, I am getting older and responsibilities are piling up on me. Nothing in this life is free.

I believe that sometimes you have to sacrifice to succeed and to get to bigger and better things in life. I have learned that and I will utilize that with the best of my ability.

My friends in Montreal always mean a lot to me and I love them with all my heart. They are always with me in my heart, mind, soul and spirit. They are all lovely people whom I absolutely adore and care about. I am sure they understand that I cannot visit anytime soon because of things I am trying to accomplish in my life and things I am trying to achieve. Thank you for the memories, I will always cherish and love you all, and when it comes time for me to visit you all, we will have a rocking fun time and create new memories again, but for now Talin needs to take care of herself and her career, but she will be back.

 

Whenever I Hit Rock Bottom, I know There is A Way Up.

Have you ever felt that when you hit rock bottom and your world world comes crashing down because of what someone said to you, or what has happened in your life? I always believe in getting back up and dusting myself off when things don’t go very pleasant and do not go well. In Life we will always encounter the times of the bad and the times of the good. There is always that balance, but it all depends on the way you look at life. If your always dwelling and looking for negativity all the time, it is not a good trait to develop. Bad things happened unfortunately and we lose people we love, and my condolences to the families and loved ones. They are with you all the time in your heart, mind, and soul. You just got to look deeper, that is all. I have had numerous amounts of bad things happening to me, and I have lived past through each one of them. I have finally put the bullying of people behind me, I have finally snapped out of that phase where I don’t have to feel terrible about myself. I realize how life is so short for me to keep on doing that to myself and upsetting myself and thinking about how the past has hurt me, and it did hurt me terribly much more emotionally and mentally, than anything else.

I realize I am not alone and I believe that I have people in this world just like me and whom I can relate to. We can all help each other in some way and get that message across. I will always remember that when I hit rock bottom, there is always a way up and get myself going again with positive and happy energy, that I need in my life. I will not let things bother me and I will not let others dictate my life and what I stand for. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I believe in a diverse world where we all come together as one body of our human world. I want to thank everyone for everything. I am so touched deeply and so grateful for having come this far, and will continue to keep my head up high and I will not let things get to me anymore. Hitting rock bottom is something I want to prevent from happening, but in life it will happen beyond our control, but I am up for the challenge to conquer it and beat it. I will not be someones puppet and I will not let others walk all over me. I can’t let that happen, and I am acting accordingly to different situations of life. I am up for the challenge. Lets do this everyone. Lets get up there and keep the rocks down where they belong. The only way up is to be confident and happy always with a dash of positivity and kick up your life with a notch of optimism.

All the best and love you all.

Life is too short. You never know what happens from one minute to the next.

Lately, I have realized that life is too short and you never know what happens from one minute to the next and I always say to my family, my friends that it is very important to keep on communicating with loved ones as much as possible, enjoy, cherish moments with people whom are part of your lives because you never know, the next day those moments to cherish with that person will no longer be. Life has so many surprises, twists, turns, obstacles, ups, downs, which is why I always say.

I always bring up the materialism subject, because not everything is about materialism in life. We can always replace items, and everything, but we can never replace our loved ones and people in our lives who have passed on and we can never replace the memories we have had with them as it will always be part of us in our lifes journey. We must always remember the good times we have with people, cherish, keep in touch as much as possible because you are here today, but gone tomorrow or your here in the morning, gone at night. Life is unpredictable and we never know what it brings us, which is why I say, enjoy life, take everything lightly, and some people always hate on others and do terrible things. I mean what for? Were all on this earth, lets live and let live and have peace and harmony in this world where we can one day tolerate each other and stop the fighting, bickering, and all these terrible things people do.

This year of 2012, has been a really terrible year so far after losing 3 of my relatives, and all of them were so special to me and all I have of them now are memories that will live on with me forever. Never stop saying I love you to loved ones, never stop saying thank you to them, and always appreciate who they are and the time spent together. Rekindle bonds that have been broken, talk about problems you have with others, solve them or else sometimes when problems are not solved we often regret it and sometimes its too late to say I am sorry. I am saying that you never know how long we have in this world and we have limited time, so we must enjoy and forget about things that don’t really matter and focus our energy on the people.

My Condolences to those who have lost loved ones. It is not easy, but always know I am here to give you a virtual hug, virtual shoulder to lean on and I am here to listen because people are important to me and they are my NUMBER ONE!

Peace and Love to all.
