Social Media

What’s going on Y’all?

I wanted to take a moment to weigh in on social media.  As you know, I’m the owner of noozbuffet.com, and I also have a Facebook page, and a Twitter account.  I communicate through all three outlets.  I’m not nor do I ever plan on hiding behind my screen.  I’m a writer at heart, but I have a passion for seeking facts, truth, and researching.

I’m here to help, and the best way I can do that is by sharing my personal experiences.  I post my real pictures, and my real name and information because I’m not hiding from anyone, and I’m not doing anything wrong.

Now, if you want to be stupid on Twitter or Facebook and send ignorant comments, pointless insults, and threats behind an account with no picture and a name like G232475648375, well, I’m just going to fucking block you.

In addition, all you really do is fire me up and motivate me to write more.  So in a way, I’d like to thank you before I block you.  Nooz Buffet has been up for just about a year and I have 50,000 words published.  Keep it coming.

Moving forward, you should not even be allowed to have a Twitter account or any other social media account without providing real legitimate information about yourself.  There would without a doubt, be a lot less scumbags and cowards on stage.

Thank you.

Alright Everyone Have A Good Evening

 

 

Prisoner To Your Past?

I cannot speak for everyone, but there are some who’ve made decisions in their past that cost them in their future.

The whole idea behind growing up, changing, and becoming a better person is based on those decisions and the life we used to live.  Some people decide early in their lives what they want, while others just kind of go with the flow without placing any importance on decisions or future plans.

Some people live their lives doing what they want and assume when it’s time for things to fall into place for them, it just will.

If you’ve recognized the mistakes you made and now commit yourself to making better choices, then you’re at peace with what you’ve done.  You’re moving forward knowing your future will be better because you’re making good choices today.

There are people who loved you and still do, and if those people were around you when you weren’t making the best decisions, than you’re choices probably affected them as well because they cared about you.

Not being at the top of your game and getting in trouble causes the people who care about you to stress and worry, but even they, at some point, must let it go.

It’s like you’re trying to move forward, but they’re holding you by the back of your shirt.  They stand firm and you run in place.  No one is making progress.  It’s not healthy.

Believe me, some people don’t believe in second chances, and nothing makes them more upset than seeing someone overcome.  You’re successful now, but all they can remember is how bad you were and how bad you made them feel.  You have to get away from these people.  If they can’t get over your past, then they’ll never let go of the back of your shirt.

They’ll always be the overcast on your sunny day.

But what if getting away from them is the ultimate rock bottom?  Bum status?

Well, you’ll be a free bum.  There’s nowhere else to go.

Our Very Own…..

The college football 2019 season is just about here, and I’m excited because……

here at Table Seven and Noozbuffet.com we have our very own College Football Playoff Ranking System.  This is extremely important because every year shit goes really good until conference championship week.

Eventually, we run into the issue of who should be playing who and who should be ranked where.  It becomes a huge mess and no one is ever really happy or confident when  the rankings come out.

Remember last season, UCF was undefeated but the polls were clearly favoring Notre Dame, and why the hell did Oklahoma State get to creep back in with 2 loses over the Buckeyes?

The noozbuffet.com College Football Top 8 Ranking System is flawless come crunch time.  We analyze, research, and in the end, were confident in how we pick the best matchups.

How the hell do we do it?  Well, that’s our secret.

Lucky To Be Alive

One evening in January, 2000, I was driving home.  I was twenty at the time, turning twenty-one in February, and I was driving my newly leased vehicle.  I loved that car, it was brand new at the time-a 2000 Chevy S10 pickup truck.  I wanted a pickup truck so bad.

Anyhow, there was an uphill road I was coming to, but in order for me to go up the hill I had to first crossover a lane of traffic going in the opposite direction.  Slowly, I crept forward, I looked left, and then looked right.  I crept forward some more and then stepped on the gas looking back to my left, but when I look back to the left again I saw lights.

I was sitting in the driver seat (well, what was left of it) with my head leaning forward against the steering wheel when I woke up to the sound of something loud.  It almost sounded like a lawnmower.  I asked the man who trying to pry me out of the car if I was dreaming.

“No, this is real life,” he said.

I had been t-boned by a drunk driver, driving on the revoke list.  He hit me in my driver side door at approximately 60 to 65 mph.  The sound I heard was “The Jaws of Life,” a saw used by paramedics in situations like mine where someone had to be cut out of their vehicle after a car accident.

My car was completely totaled, I mean absolutely crushed.  Immediately, I was taken to the hospital for treatment.

I left the hospital the next morning with no major injuries, just a very sore ankle and knee.  Later on that year, I played my third season of football at William Paterson University.

I’m lucky to be alive.  I’m lucky I wasn’t crippled.  I’m lucky I didn’t lose a limb, or end up brain dead.

I’m thankful for each and every day, and every morning I wake up, because I could’ve been dead before my 21st birthday.

If you’ve never had an experience where your life was in jeopardy, then let me share something with you.  Enjoy yourself.  If you’re not happy, get to a place where you can be.

There are no stupid ideas.  Whatever puts you in position to be the best person you can be, and living the best way you can, then do it.

Antarctica And The Ozone

I wasn’t going to write about this, but shit man, I’m excited.  I watched a documentary about Antarctica.  It was very long, and there was a lot of information covered.  Of course, those brave people who attempted to reach the plateau from the ice shelf (coastline) were recognized as well as those actually ended up making it all the way to the South Pole at 90 degrees.

Here’s the part that got my mind racing.  There were people down there, scientist I’m sure, and they were conducting experiments.  Accidentally, someone opened a hole in the ozone layer directly over the Pole, which is pretty much the center of the icy continent.

Normally, the South Pole is -100 degrees, and it doesn’t receive strong sunlight because of it’s location.  Antarctica is completely covered with ice and snow, and the waters around the continent are 2 miles of frozen depth.  I don’t think the hole that was opened was that a big, obviously,  but if it had been, we could’ve been in serious trouble.

This got me thinking about Noah and the flood.  What if, that’s what happened in biblical times.  It’s not far fetched.  The documentary said 70% of our planet’s fresh water is the frozen ice on and around Antarctica, and if it had melted, sea levels would rise 300 feet.

Now, if that were the case, Antarctica which is one of the only places on the globe we can’t really occupy and maintain a “normal” way of living because of the weather extremes, but would probably become the safe place to go.  Antarctica and some really high mountain tops.

What if in our attempt to explore space, and our never ending desire to know our place in this world, was almost our own demise?  What if we knew what were doing, and we knew what the outcome would be, but someone in biblical times went ahead and made that hole anyway, and melted the ice on and around Antarctica.  Maybe Noah built his Ark and sailed to Antarctica, and now it’s buried under the frozen ice.

What is really on that continent?

If you take Noah’s Arc out of Antarctica, you’re left with Attica!

WONDERLOVE

Sometimes I wonder, and I’m just speaking in general here for a moment, but I’m wondering how long it really takes for a person to get over someone they had a relationship with and who they really truly loved.  Is it possible for two people to have a relationship filled with so much love, it plants the seeds for that same love to blossom years and years after the breakup?  There has to be a way to find new love, and make new memories, even when all the signs point to the past.  Maybe that’s just it.  Maybe real love replaces real love, and all signs will point to the past until you’ve found a new love that conquers all.

I don’t know, if we were talking I’d say I’m just thinking out loud, which means I’m probably not making much sense.


FIREWORKS AND FOOTBALL

The 4th of July came and went.  Shit, it went so fast I didn’t even see the fireworks.  That’s how this whole year is going.  You blink, and it’s gone.  There’s like a little more than a week left in this month.   August is fast approaching.  The dog 🐶 days of summer as they call it.  August always reminds me of football season.  High school and college.  That’s when double sessions started.  I laugh when people complain about the heat during the summer.  Try putting on all that football equipment, and practicing twice a day in the depths of August.

I don’t know if I ever mentioned it, but I played four years of football at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.  Much love to WIlly P.  I had some great times there.  I really hope the team has a better season this year.  I was just on the WIlliam Paterson Website a few days ago, and I saw they were winless in 2018?  We must change that this year.  Good luck Pioneers.


PIGS, PIRATES, AND PHILLIES

Right now the Phillies are 52-48.  They’re in second place, 6.5 games behind Washington in the National League East.  The Pirates are 46-53.  Currently, they’re in fourth place, 7.5 games behind the Cubs in the National League Central.  There’s just about 62 games left in the MLB regular season.

In much more local baseball news, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs minor league baseball team is 47-52.  They play their home games right here in Allentown, Pennsylvania at Coca Cola Park.  They’re about to beat Toledo’s ass tonight, the game is in the 9th.  The IronPigs are in fifth place in the International League North, and 9 games out of first.  The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are in first place.


All right everyone.  Have a good night, and a wonderful day tomorrow.  Make everyday count, and be the best person you can possibly be.

💕💪💪😛👍😎

Please Don’t….

If you want to help, help.  If you don’t, don’t.


 

Everybody needs somebody.  It doesn’t matter who you are, how great and talented you might be, or how much money you have.  At some point, we all need help.

Mr. X: “I just graduated college.  I was the most talented painter in my class, but for some reason, I can’t seem to get a job.”

Mr. Y: “Well Mr. X, I know Mr. Z.  Mr. Z owns his own art gallery and is always looking to purchase artwork from new talent.”

Mr. X allows Mr. Y to hook him up with Mr. Z because Mr. X needs a job.  Two years later, Mr. Y becomes resentful and angry at Mr. X because Mr. X is doing really well for himself and became a top selling artist.

Mr. Y continuously throws it up in Mr. X’s face  that it’s because of him that he got the job in the first place.  Mr. X can’t even enjoy the fruit of his labor.

There will come a time when you’ll realize what your capable of, and also, come to grips with your shortcomings.  At that point, you will look elsewhere for someone to help in those areas, because face it, if you don’t, you’ll be stuck in neutral.

To all those Mr. Y’s out there; No one wants to feel imprisoned because of your help.  Please don’t.  If you’re going to help someone out, do it out of the kindness of your heart.  Do it because you want to help, and because you really want Mr. X to become successful.

If your intentions aren’t genuine, Mr. X will see that eventually.  Mr. X, please don’t use people.  Mr. Y could be feeling the way he does because he feels used.  Thank Mr. Y, and let him know your decision to have him speak to Mr. Z was because out of many others, you trusted him.  Perhaps, when you become successful, you can repay him with dinner?

Have A Freakin Good Night

 

 

Career; Separation and Hate

6/15/20019


 

What’s up everyone?  How ya’ll doing?  If you’ve been keeping up with my blog here then you probably read “Show Quote; Scene Making Sense,” and I hope life hasn’t hit you with a spinning heel kick to the balls like it has me.

Yup things were going great.  I was on my way to work, I had a few days left before break, and all of a sudden, BAM!  I was rear ended.  A spinning heel kick to the balls and a big steaming shit right in my mouth.  That’s how it goes.  I am okay.  I will fight to keep my head above water, and I’ll fight to win because life shows us no mercy.


 

Moving forward, there’s been a lot of talk about careers.   There’s also been a lot of hating going on, and I really don’t like using the word ‘hating’ in situations involving work, and I made a promise to not give anymore attention to negativity so I’m briefly going to talk about careers while gingerly intertwining hate into the conversation.

Career path/Future Path

When discussing your future or your future path there’s a focus on the individual level.  Individuality is something I really stress because I love the fact that we’re all different.  It’s fascinating to me.  Nothing is more interesting than watching a professional at work; a master of his/her craft.

I watched the college wrestling finals because I wanted to see the two top wrestlers (in each weight class) in the Nation, compete, and it was like watching art in motion.  There is a future in the cards for the world, but your future will be your world as it applies to you, and this includes all the symbolism and clues that go along with it.  The future path, which includes your career path, is about individuality, self-realization, maturity, and self-awareness.

Your career path is your method of getting paid, which ultimately sets you apart.  There’s a separation between those who can, and those who can’t, and those who do, and those who don’t.  Separation causes hate.

A position with ABC Company required a high school diploma.  100 people applied.  Everyone was happy.  A position with ABC Company then required a Bachelor’s Degree.  40 people applied.  There were 60 haters who weren’t qualified.  A position with ABC Company then required a Master’s Degree.  15 people applied.  There were 85 unqualified haters.

ABC Company is very successful.  They want the most qualified candidates, and more importantly, they want people who want a career within their company.  A position with ABC Company requires a Master’s Degree, and a clean background check.  10 people applied.  There were 85 unqualified haters, and 5 haters who were qualified criminals.

1 person got the job.  There were 9 jealous people.

The following week, the person who got the job put his new suit on and drove to ABC Company.  On his way into the office building he was faced with an angry mob of protestors.  They had signs and chanted, “no work, no money.”  Some of them were even throwing rocks and bottles at him and the ABC Building.

He passed the security guard, who ignored him, and headed to the elevator.  The elevator guy threw an evil look in his direction before pressing the button to the floor he was going to.  He greeted the woman sweeping the floor, but she just gave him a fake smile.  The two secretaries gave him the middle finger when his back was turned, and the guys washing his office windows were cursing at him, but he couldn’t hear them because they were outside.

He worked at ABC Company for a year.  As soon as his boss got his Master’s Degree, he fired him.


 

LOL Have A Wonderful Night

 

Show Quote, Scene Making Sense

Let me first say that I loved the original Karate Kid.  Parts two and three were excellent as well, but there was something about the original.  Maybe it was because I could identify a little bit with Daniel Larusso since he was from Newark, New Jersey, and I was a kid growing up in New Jersey when it came out.

Then they remade the Original with Will Smith, and to be honest, I didn’t really go for it.  I like Will Smith, but the Karate Kid was a movie that just couldn’t be remade.

The best thing they could’ve done however, they did.  Cobra Kai!  I thought it was going to be corny, but I’m super impressed.  I just finished watching the last Episode of the first season, and it’s amazing.  The writing is excellent, the story line is believable and not far fetched, and believe me, there’s nothing cornballish about it.  It flows, and I’d much rather see the original cast of characters in their roles now moving forward, then having someone try to remake a masterpiece.

That brings me to the scene before the All Valley Karate Tournament when William Zabka (Sense Lawrence) is speaking to his students about “No Mercy.”


 

“The older you get the more you’re going to learn that life isn’t fair.  You wake up one morning feeling great, and life throws a spinning heel kick to your balls and takes a big steaming shit in your mouth. (LOL😆)  You get an F on a test, get suspended, fall in love with a girl, and another dude comes and steals her away.  Your car gets set on fire.  Just when you think things are going good, everything falls apart.  That’s how it goes.  Life shows no mercy. ..we do whatever it takes to keep our heads above water, we do whatever it takes to keep moving forward.  We do whatever it takes to win!”

                                                                                                   –William Zabka Cobra Kai

This scene really resonated with me because it’s the absolute truth.  Life shows no mercy.  That’s how it goes.  The sooner we except this, the better off we’ll be.  This scene just woke me up, it motivated me.  Seriously.  Life will beat you into submission if you allow it.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful year, and making the most out of every day.  Let this scene and this quote motivate all y’all.


 

Have A wonderful Night

 

Checking In – Catching You Up..

5/25/2019


What’s up everyone how are you?  I hope you are all doing well, getting out there and living your lives, and trying to be the best person you can be.  For real.

I was just watching a preview of the movie, Noah.  It was the one that came out in 2014 with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.  The part of the movie being shown was Russell Crowe’s narration of the creation of Earth as written in Genesis, and it was really really interesting.

In my mind I was just imagining God as this non-physical entity, flying through space looking for a home, at the same time Earth was forming.  At the end of the 7-day creation period, everything was good, and in perfect harmony.  It showed Adam and Eve as light bodies or light beings, pure, and innocent.  Of course the snake comes along, Adam eats the apple, sin is committed, and murder ensues, but this whole scenario got me thinking.

In my opinion, and I do say my opinion because people will jump all over me saying this; I think human origin has been, and perhaps, will always be a thorn in the side of humanity.  Where did we come from?

Finding an answer to that question is almost impossible, but after watching that scene in Noah I wondered about the idea of Adam and Eve as light bodies.  What if they were?  What if, today, one man and one woman – soulmates, found each other and connected, and stole the light of the world, but this time, they didn’t sin.  That would take us all the way back to creation, and if they didn’t sin, well, that could be the end of humanity.

It’s something to think about.


 

What’s everyone doing for Memorial Day?  This year Memorial Day is Monday, May 27th.

For me Memorial Day hasn’t quite been the same since leaving New Jersey.  In New Jersey, Memorial Day is one of those special weekends where everyone who lives in the Northern portion of the state, invades the middle and southern coastal areas for beach access.

It’s really funny now that I’m looking back.  The people who live in these areas year-around really hated us Northerners for over-populating their cities and towns, partying, and creating all types of traffic issues, but hey, their economies thrived because of it.

LOL  😆😛🚗🚐🚲🛴🚗🚗🚗🚗🚗

Personally, I didn’t make any special plans this year.  I’ll be around.  Hopefully, soon, I can start finding some new Pennsylvania traditions.


 

B-Ball 🏀🏀👍

It has been a while since we discussed basketball, and that’s probably because the 76ers were eliminated from the championship race.  There is a game tonight though.  Tonight at 8:30 is game 6 for the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors.  The Raptor lead the series 3-2.  The winner of the series will play the Golden State Warriors for the NBA Championship.


Dating Sites?  💑

There are so so many dating sites on the internet, and I swore that I would never use an internet dating site to meet someone, but that was when I was twenty,  Now, in my thirties, my opinion towards dating sites has changed, and I did join one, but I still haven’t met anyone.

Has anyone had any luck?  I’m starting to wonder if these sites are even real.  Are the people on them real? Are the profiles real?  If you joined a dating site and met someone, please write in and let me know what site you’re using, and how much if anything did you pay to become a member.  I’m definitely interested.
