Whenever I read stories of people doing huge pranks on set, all I think is, ‘These people have too much time on their hands.’ Besides, I don’t want to make some poor assistant clean up someone’s trailer after I’ve filled it with, say, Cadbury eggs. See? I can’t even think of a good prank.
First: Happy Friday!
Today’s turning out to be a real crappy day, as you can tell by today’s Quote of the Day post. I heard “Friday I’m in Love” on the radio just now. It’s my silly sign that things will be okay. Haven’t done a “The Cure” poem yet, so this should be fun. 🙂
It’s Friday and on
“Friday I’m in Love”.
It’s “A Strange Day”
to be in “A Forest”
wandering through the “Purple Haze”.
Wish you were “Close to Me”
again so I’m not trapped
in my memories with
these “Pictures of You”.
Alas, you are

If we make it in time,
we can catch “The Lovecats”
perform their “Lovesong”.
We’ll laugh and party
for old time’s sake
and it’ll be “Just Like Heaven”.
We’ll stay up ’til morning
before we part ways.
You’ll start crying like mad
and I’ll stop you and say
“Boys Don’t Cry”!
We’ll take “The Walk”
to the train station.
You’ll hum my “lullaby”
and promise we’ll
All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.

I will cheers to that with my cup of hot chocolate. Happy Friday!
#TBT is fun and all but it’s still a busy workday for me, so I’m going to celebrate #FlashbackFriday!
I received a recent notification that someone began following my old blog, Your Way With Words, which hasn’t posted anything in awhile….a long while. I appreciate you following my good sir/madam.
Fast forward the checking of the notification to the part I open the site. All these posts! All the time I spent on that ol’ blog! I wish I had that kind of time again. I came across one of my first posts, “Imagination is Key”.
Many people believe success is measured by the outcome of what you are trying to achieve. Many people believe it is from the experience and knowledge gained. Those people may be correct. However, they are forgetting that success isn’t just one thing but a network of factors from perseverance to motivation to imagination.
To be successful is to gain and keep the perseverance while experiencing the event or project in order to get the favorable outcome. In the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, perseverance is defined as a “continued effort to do or achieve something despite its difficulties, failures or opposition”. Difficulties. Failures. Opposition. Let us be honest and admit those things are all around for life is not easy. To put it simply: do not give up because it was “too hard” or “impossible” or give the “I can’t do it” excuse.
My head just about exploded. If you were to place me at the time I wrote that side by side with the me right now, you may find two different people. Or you may find the same person. Point is, I am a little rusty with the writing thing. I will happily admit it. So seeing the level I once was back then is a nice refresher and motivator to keep noting details and honing those writing skills again. Hell, not just getting to that level again but surpassing that level!
Anyway, Happy Friday everyone! If you want to read the rest of the post, click here: Imagination is Key.
