Something About Being Cynical

I’m rarely a cynical person, I try to be positive in many things. However the climate we live in is making us all suspicious and stopping to ask hard questions. We see bad things happening all the time and we have become jaded and see the world for what it’s becoming instead of what it can be. My hope for the future is a return to idealism and dreams without the doubts and negative space.

Daily Prompt: Degree

Right now students are sweating out the final exams of their university/college careers. They will walk across a stage to receive a degree that is the cumulation of years of hard work and sleepless nights. Other people are suffering burns of a certain degree that has changed their lives forever. Crimes are being committed of a certain degree of seriousness that will send someone to prison. The weather is measured in degrees. It seems that the word degree has a lot of uses and purposes depending on situations in life. Degree is also a brand of antiperspirant/deodorant that can keep people from sweating the small stuff or the big stuff.

Daily Prompt: Age

Age they say is just a number, its also a statement of your life. Each number you reach is a witness to history both personal and global. Your age means different things at different points in your life. Thirteen you become a teenager, sixteen you get to drive, eighteen you become an adult, twenty-one you get to drink (in the USA) and much later at 65-70 you think about retirement. So the older you get the more you get to experience. Age is generational and how you relate to others can be impacted by the differences in ones age. Now age can be a good thing with cheese, wine and antiques. Their value increases the older they get. At this point in my life I am trying to remain relevant and to understand the world around me. Enjoy every age you become because you are a different person each year you become.

Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. The term “Cyber Monday” was created by marketing companies to persuade people to shop online. (From Wikipedia)

One day if it hasn’t already Cyber Monday will eclipse Black Friday in terms of importance and revenue for retailers. Places like Amazon and Ebay have become important players in gift purchases. What have you done on Cyber Monday?
