10 Worst Things That Can Happen On The Way To Work

This prompt was from: http://creativewritingprompts.com/ since I couldn’t think of anything to write myself, so here’s a list of things I think are crappy things that can happen to you on the way to work.  Definitely not the most comprehensive list.

1) The radio says the world will end in one year.

2) Crapping your pants.

3) Forgetting to say bye to your family.

4) All of your investments fail.

5) You feel discontent.

6) Your S.O. just gave birth and you missed it.

7) You think of something useful but then you forget because you didn’t have a chance to write it down.

8) The world runs out of fresh water.

9) You’re leaving from your bosses house and won”t keep your mouth shut.

10) You forget something that you were supposed to do.

There Was A Crazy Woman

There was a single woman,
Who said she needed love.

There was a married woman,
Who said that she was bored.

There was an independent woman,
Who needed no one.

There was a beautiful woman,
Who noticed every flaw.

There was a perfect woman,
Who already had the perfect man.

Then there was a crazy woman,
Who only wanted juice.

What is “S” for? (Warning it has the S word)

S is for when you F up.

It’s also for when you want attention.

Use it to throw a fit.

Use it if you want to offend.

Substitute for nouns, or….

Get creative using it as an adjective

Say it a few times out loud

You’ll feel better

Be careful where you use it.

It should be a rare word..

When something goes really wrong.

Keep it in your vocab

But use it sparingly.

Should I just say it?

Might hurt someones feelings…

Shit. Oh well.

Are Asian Life Insurance Videos Too Powerful?

Before you watch these videos, I suggest you get a tissue box.

If you’re reading after watching those videos, thank you.  The question here is, are these videos TOO powerful?  Are overly dramatic videos really the best solution for life insurance companies to promote their product?

Maybe it’s an effective tool in Asia just because of their culture for dramatic film, but these videos just feel like a bit much.  Great short films, but as commercials? hmmm..  What are your thoughts?

“Floral Waltz”

I gazed upon her shadow on the floor

and watched the dance from wall to door.

She moved at such a fluid pace…

My, the sun had given her such grace.

I couldn’t help but feel perplexed

The way she turned seemed so complex.

As her figure lingered at my door

I couldn’t help but wish for more.

My only hope was that I knew

At sunrise the waltz would start anew.

The sun had journeyed east to west,

her shadow finally came to rest.

When you think something is dumb, but it’s really just that you’re dumb.

This is just a story about how I thought something was really dumb, but eventually came to realize it’s not so dumb after all.  Let’s get straight to the story.

The other day I downloaded a program to use my fingerprint to sign into my laptop.  After I got everything set up, it still gave me the option to enter my password.

I began thinking to myself “This is stupid, if I can just use my fingerprint, why would I ever want to be able to enter a password?  Those developers have no common sense!  If someone steals my password they can still access, the fingerprint really means nothing!”

Then, as I was eating potato chips with my fingerprint hand, as I tried logging onto my laptop, it hit me.  I was the one who should have thought things out more.  Or at least I was just overly critical for no reason.  Moral of the story, appreciate your fingers.

10 choices for this blog

This blog is far from highly successful, heck it’s far from even being a minor success.  Let’s say one day it does become successful, perhaps it would be a good idea to keep track of reasoning for certain choices made on this blog.  Here’s a thought process for anyone who cares.  As of 03/31/2015:

1) Color Scheme: Royal Purple and Gold.  I’ve always found those colors to be very elegant.  The Gold, well the logo designer actually came up with the color.  Thanks buddy, would put your name on here but will keep it secret for privacy reasons.

2) Name: Why chttrz?  Didn’t want to spend too much time trying to find a name.  One second you’re searching it.  Wait a month, the next second that domain name is gone.  I wanted something casual, chatty.  Although I have found it difficult to explain the spelling of “chttrz” when I tell random people.  Make this a lesson.

3) Design: Why did I choose this specific theme/template?  Well I found many of the other ones slightly difficult to use.  I wanted something very simple and easy to navigate.  I would love to have someone make a custom one, but that’s out of the budget otherwise I would have paid for one of the great pay templates on WP.  I’ve been through a lot of designs over the years, ok really only about 5-10, but this one is the easiest to work with and get my point across.

4) Lowercase Letters on certain parts of the blog: In all honesty this is just to be different.  Everyone uses capitals on their first words.  I figure try a technique that might stand out whether in a good or bad way.  As long as it’s on purpose.  I haven’t had any complaints.

5) Logo Design: I asked a creative acquaintance of mine to come up with something, and it fits pretty well with the “culture.”  chttrz shouldn’t really be written on a line.

6) Range of Categories: Maybe someone wants to share their posts on this blog in the future.  Didn’t want it to be limited, plus I personally have a wide variety of interests, and haven’t exactly found a writing niche/strength topic yet.

7) Lack of Images: This is due to laziness really, and the fact I don’t feel like having to worry about copyright laws.  I know there are many sources out there for open source pictures, but I don’t feel like using them all the time.

8) Why so many lists: Lots of lists because some topics just need to get straight to the point.  Personally whenever I read lists on facebook “Top 10 reasons to do this” “Top 10 whatevers of whoever” I skip the first paragraph unless the writer is very intriguing.  In truth though, most content on Facebook isn’t too intriguing because the images and initial posts are just click bait.

9) Names of Categories: This goes back to #4 and trying to be different.  Every website has the same sections like “Business” “World” “Local” etc…  This isn’t a news blog though, or super serious globally politically correct professional corporate type one.

10) What Anyone Should Take from This: Things change.  Things change often.  Nothing needs to be set in stone.  Work with what you have.  Try something new.  Change isn’t bad.  Change is good.
