Age is A Number...

You get irritated easily. You worry about your health. You try to tick everything off your "Bucket List". You think that your generation is a lot better than today's generation in terms of music, culture, playtime, social behavior and just about anything. Ah yes, how times have changed.

As I look into my wonderful (?) blog and get that warm fuzzy feeling on my posts, I realize my anger on almost anything that I would rant. I am slightly embarrassed that I would say something like that, although there are still some posts that I firmly stand on. That's why I tried to be objective rather than subjective recently. Have I mellowed out? Yeah, you could say that. But why? Age does that to you.

As you grow older, when your age no longer belongs to any of the dates on the calendar, you realize that the things that you are ranting about are just a waste of your time. You care less about the bullsh*t on the world and prioritize on security, health and family. So does this mean that you regret those things? Heck no.

Like Eminem when he was really famous back in the early 2000s, he said some nasty things about his Mother, Homosexuals and just about anything he can stab at. Fast forward a few years later, his music has direction. He wrote a song apologizing to his mother. He performed his hit song "Stan" Live with Elton John, a famous homosexual. He keeps on saying on his music that he hopes that he is helping today's bullied kids that they are not alone. His music is still angry, but not fuming mad. That's what I feel right now. Sometimes you need an outlet for your anger to know yourself and find meaning to your life.

Wow. You know, I never ever thought I would be something like this, like an Ex-Con who found Peace, A Purpose. I guess I found out that there are some things that you cannot take control of, that you just have to let it slide instead of ranting about it and be labeled as a "Le Douchebag". 

Well, we could go with a few liberties, like I can poke some things, things that a lot of people can agree on (like Traffic at EDSA, perhaps?) so-funny-because-it's-true (observations at public commutes) and the like. As I would like to think, be like Eminem: Angry, but not Furious.

Next time maybe I'll try to be like Bruce Lee.
