Journal # 63

       I just did 100 crunches. I can feel the aftermath of it right now. I am trying to get into the habit of doing crunches or sit-ups every single day. I was going to just stop eating as much, but I don't want to stop eating. I have grown to love eating. I have no problem with my body except my protruding stomach. I love my big ass and my big boobs. I just want my stomach to be flat. I have gotten super basic with my selfies lately because of my size. I don't usually get too creative with them anymore. When I was skinny as f*** I could pull off any photo. I was skinny as f*** and pretty as f***. I don't feel as good about myself as I did when I weighed 118 pounds. It's hard for me to get into the habit of working out because my whole life I was skinny and never needed too. Back then I didn't really gain weight either. I had a hard time gaining much weight most my life. Now that I gained weight I can't seem to get the pounds off. It f***ing sucks which is why I am now trying to do crunches every single day. Once it gets too easy, I will have to up the amount I do a day.       I am almost done with the dishes! I have maybe like 2 or 3 more loads to soak and do. It's a good feeling to get something done. I can't stand it when the house is a mess. I really want it to look completely spotless, but I know that won't happen any time soon unless Kenny helps me clean. I've been doing really good at checking off everything that I need to do lately. I have been on a role. I am so sick of sitting at home its not even funny. I really want a job so I can buy sh*t and not have to hear it from my boyfriend when I ask him for money. Now I will be able to pay for my sh*t without Kenny helping me out all the time. I miss being able to have money to spend. It's not much, but it's still money.        I wonder when Kenny is going to be back. He has been gone for awhile. I am super f***ing bored. I don't want to drink though. I want to get high. Besides, smoking weed is way better for you than getting drunk. Weed you can't get addicted too. Alcohol on the other hand, you can. Every time you get super f***ing drunk you are risking getting alcohol poisoning, risking a mean hang over the next day, and risk throwing up depending on how much you choose to drink. None of that type of sh*t happens when you smoke weed. If anything, it has more of a positive effect on your body than harmful. No one has ever died from smoking weed. People have died from drinking too much. I really want to f***ing grow so that I never have to spend a single dime on pot ever again. I can't though until my boyfriend is off papers.        My confidence has really been up and down lately. I really need to stop comparing myself to other girls that are skinnier or prettier, and do something about it. Going back to me mentioning that I am going to be working out just my stomach. I am hoping that once my stomach fat is gone, then maybe my confidence will come back full force. I hate feeling like this. I know every single girl goes through this sh*t no matter what she looks like, but ya know. Ya can't really avoid it.       I hope Kenny gets home soon. I really want to hang out with him. I will prob work on cleaning my room aka our room, and do some dishes. It's something to pass the time. I find myself bored a lot of the time lately. I really need a job so I can get back to enjoying the little things like watching TV or reading a book. It gets old doing the same sh*t over and over again. I feel lonely. I hate not being able to hang out with people whenever the f*** I please. I haven't seen Korri in a long time. I have no idea why. Maybe she is finally stepping up to the plate and spending time with her kid. I have no idea what shes been up to. We talk once in awhile, but not very often.

Journal #62

       I am drunk as hell right now. I am jamming to Phil Collins like a boss. I love him in all the Tarzan songs. The Tarzan songs were my favorite Disney movie music. I'm jamming to it right now. I love him OMG! I am a huge Phil Collins fan haha! I can thank my dad for that haha! I like a lot of music because of my dad. I grew up listening to Alice Cooper, Twisted Sister, Queen, Pink Floyd, and so on.        I am on live video right now too. Not on here obviously. I am on meet me live haha! People love watching me live. I am a pretty colorful person haha! I AM SNOOKI! As for Phil ColliI ns, hes f***ing awesome. My favorite music are from the Disney movies that has Phil Collins doing all of the music. The movies he sings the songs to are Tarzan and Brother Bear. He is an amazing artist. Has been sense he existed back in the day. My adoptive father loves him. I pretty much like any rock star that my adoptive dad likes. I love Queen and me and my family went to go see the new Queen movie and we all loved it. Even my brother Anthony said the movie was really good.        I really want to go see famous rock stars in concert with my dad. It is something on my bucket list. I am going to call him from my phone as soon as my boyfriend gets home with my phone. I have been having issues with it charging. As long as I am home I can call people but if not, I am screwed.        I gotta go I f***ed up lol.

Important post
Current mood:  eccentric

Now, where to begin? How 'bout, "Once upon a time"? How many times have you heard that to begin a story? Let's do somethin' else. I got it, I got it, here we go. Here's how to open a movie! No, I don't think so. It sounds familiar. Doesn't it, to you? Oh, no, no, not the book. How many have seen "opening the book" before? Close the book. We're not doing that. Here's what we're gonna do. Why don't I just go back to the day things took a turn for the worse? Run for your lives! Everyone run for cover! SOS! Mayday! Mayday! Code red! Duck and cover! You're all in danger! Run for cover! Run for your lives! Emergency! Emergency! Look out! Take cover! Run for cover! Chicken Little! What is it? What's going on? The sky is falling! The sky is falling! - The sky is falling? - Are you crazy? No, no, no! It's true! Come with me! No. Son? What? It happened under the old oak tree! I'm not making this up. I know it's here. There's a piece of the sky somewhere... ...somewhere on the ground here. It was shaped like that! - Like a stop sign? - Yes! Only it doesn't say "stop" and it's blue and it has a cloud on it. And it hit me on the head! - It looked like a stop sign. - Wait! What's that? - Son, is this what hit you? - What? No, Dad. It was definitely a piece of the sky! Piece of the sky. It's OK, everyone! - Dad, no. - There's been, like, a little mistake. It was just an acorn that hit my son. A little acorn. - No! Dad, no. - Quiet, son. This is embarrassing enough already. Chicken Little! What were you thinkin'? Why put your town's safety in jeopardy? How could you mistake a stop sign for an acorn? - But it... a big acorn level fluh. - What did he say? - A big acorn level fluh... - It was a big acorn? - It was an ape throwing coleslaw? - A big acorn level fluh... Gesundheit! Ladies and gentlemen, it's just gibberish, - gibberish of an insane person. - Come on, Buck! Your kid went and scared us all half to death! Well, what can I tell you, folks, my son, you know... Kids do crazy stuff. You have kids. It's... No, Dad. It wasn't an acorn. It was... it was a piece of the sky. Really, it was. You gotta believe me. A movie. A movie. They're makin' a movie. When? When will everybody forget your big mistake? First it was all over the papers, then they wrote a book about it, then the book on tape, then the board game, the spoons with your face on it... ...the Web site, the commemorative plates. - You saw them, right? - I saw them. Can't eat off 'em. - They're not microwave-safe. - You saw the billboards? I saw them. There's a bumper sticker. I knew it was only a matter of time. Billboards I could live with. Posters I could even live with. But a bumper sticker. It's... it's like glued on forever. It doesn't matter. You know why? Because I've got a plan. Yeah, about that. Well, remember how I told you it would be better for you to lay low, don't call attention to yourself? - Yes, but I... - See, it's like a game. Yeah, a game of hide-and-seek, except the goal is never to be found, ever! Great! Now, we've got a plan, right? I'll see ya later! Remember, lay low. Yeah. OK. Bye. Look, Mama! There's the crazy chicken! Yes, it is! Crazy chicken. You're so smart. We don't make eye contact. Bye! That's it. Today is a new day. It was a recipe for disaster A four-course meal of "No sirree" It seemed that happily ever after Was happy everyone was after me It was a cup of good intentions A tablespoon of one big mess A dash of overreaction And I assume you know the rest One little slip One little slip It was a fusion of confusion With a few confounding things I guess I probably took the wrong direction Well I admit I might've missed a sign or two I took a right turn at confusion A left when I should've gone straight on through I ran ahead with my assumptions And we all know what that can do One little slip One little slip It was a fusion of confusion And a few confounding things I get the feeling in this town I'll never live 'til I live down The one mistake that seems to follow me around But they'll forget about the sky When they all realize This guy's about to try to learn to fly Or hit the ground How's it going? It was a cup of good intentions A tablespoon of one big mess A dash of overreaction And I assume you know the rest One little slip One little slip It was a humble little stumble With a big ungraceful One little slip One little slip It was a fusion of confusion with a few confounding things Very well. Foxy Loxy. - Present, pretty and punctual. - Goosey Loosey. Master Runt of the Litter. Present and accounted for, Mr. Woolensworth. Dropped my pencil! - Loser! - Henny Penny. - Here. - Ducky Lucky. - Here. - Fuzzy Wuzzy. - Here. - Morkubine Porcupine. - Yo. - Fish Out of Water. Quite. Abby Mallard. Ugly duckling. Class! I will not tolerate rude behavior - at the expense of a fellow... - Hey, no worries, Mr. Woolensworth. You mustn't sneak up on me, Ugly... Abby. - Where was I? - Ugly duckling. Oh, yes. Chicken Little. - Tardy again. - Tardy again. Class, turn to page 62 and translate each word in Mutton. He. She. They. We. OK, everyone. Listen up! OK, everyone. Listen up! I don't wanna hear any quacks, tweets, oinks, whinnies or cocklee-doodle-doos when I say... dodgeball. Oh, man. Pump it up! Pump it, pump it, pump it! Split into two teams. Popular versus unpopular. - Coach? - Yeah, unpopular? Shouldn't we review safety guidelines? Sure! Hit the pig, kids! Look out! Calm down, Runt. Just... Just do what Fish is doing. Everybody dance now - Tough morning? - A run-in with my old nemesis. - Gum in the crosswalk? - He won. Your old foe! - Incoming on your right. - Thank you. Yeah, I heard about the movie. Tough break. - Yeah. - Maybe it'll just go straight to video. That's the least of my problems. This morning... this morning my dad told me I should basically disappear. But that's not gonna get me down. I've got a plan. You want to hear about it? No, no, no! This one's good. Look, one moment destroyed my life, right? One moment. - Warthog at 3:00! - I see him! - Yes! - So I figure all I need is a chance... All I need is a chance to do something great to make everyone forget the "sky falling" thing once and for all. Then my dad'll finally have a reason to be proud of me. Time out! Nurse! - Hi, Tiffany! - Hey, man, what's goin' on? So, what do you think? OK, listen. You said the sky was falling. - Your dad didn't support you. - I... And you have been hurting inside ever since, right? - It's hurt. It stung. OK? - It's hurt, but... Yes. - That's the nutshell. - Yes, but... - No... - But, it's... What's got to happen now is the nut needs to be cracked open. And not one little chip at a time, but... bam! Smash! Bits of emotion flying everywhere! Anger! Frustration! Denial! Fear! Deep depression, in fact! You see what I'm saying? All right, forget the nut part. Here's the main thing. You have got to stop messing around, and deal with the problem. - But... - Here's the real solution. You and your dad talk-talk-talking... closure! - Closure? - Closure, talking about something until it's resolved. Wait! Hold on! See? Look. There's a whole section about it in this month's Modern Mallard. - Incredibly appropriate! - I told you, I have a plan. Yeah, but according to Cosmo Duck, you should "stop the squawk and try the talk." Beautiful Duckling says, "Avoiding closure with your parents can cause early molting." See? Closure. Come on, repeat after me. You, your dad, talk-talk... Abby, Abby, Abby, listen! Talking's a waste of time. I got to do something great so my dad doesn't think I'm a loser. Come on. You are not a loser. You're inventive and resourceful and funny and cute and... What? Yeah... Runt! Should Chicken Little have a good talk with his dad and clear the air or keep searching for Band-Aid solutions and never deal with the problem? Band-Aid solutions! - Runt! - Well, I'm sorry! I'm very bad at reading facial cues. Fish, help me out here. Men. 'Twas beauty that killed the beast. I guess only girls are good at honest communication and sensitivity. That does it! We were in a time-out, Foxy! Prepare to hurt. And I don't mean emotionally, like I do. We will save you! Fall back! Mad goose! Chicken Little! Not showing up for class, inappropriate school attire, Not showing up for class, inappropriate school attire, picking fights in gym class and the fire alarm? Ever since that "sky falling" incident, he's been nothing but trouble! Now look, Buck. You know I have the utmost respect for you. I mean, you were Buck "Ace" Cluck, our school baseball star. But let's face the facts. Your kid, he's nothing like you at all. OK. Thank you for talking to me. I'll take care of my son. I... Dad, it wasn't my fault. - It was Foxy. She's always... - All right. It's fine. You don't have to explain anything. Hey, Dad? I was thinkin'. Yeah, what if I? What if? What if I joined the baseball team? Hey, why don't you watch where you're going?! Sorry, there, buddy! Sorry, sorry. Baseball? Son, we talked about this. Yeah, right. But, you know, that was when I was small. I put on five ounces this year. I've really bulked up. Really, son? Baseball. Are you sure? Oh, yeah, yeah. I mean, you know, hey, why not, right? - Yeah, why not, but why? - Well, Dad, you were such a big baseball star in high school. You could give me some pointers. But son, I'm just wondering... Maybe baseball isn't exactly your thing, you know? Have you considered the chess team or the glee club? And some teenagers, you know, they get quite a rush from stamp collecting. - No. - Wanna stop? We'll get stamps. - I don't like stamps. - Colors, colorful things... No, I was thinkin' baseball! I can't wait to see the look on your face when I smack that ball in for a touchdown! Dad... I'm kidding. That was a... that was a joke. Just do me one favor, son. Why, sure, Dad. Anything. Just please try not to get your hopes too high. Yeah, but Dad, I mean, I... I mean, I think I can... OK, Dad. I bruise you You bruise me We both bruise so Easily Too easily To let it show I love you And that's all I know Oh, Chloe. If only you were here. You'd know what to do. And all my plans Keep fallin' through All my plans, they Depend on you Depend on you To help them grow I love you - That's my boy! - Gee, thanks, Dad! And that's all It's really all I know It's all I know Come on. All I need is a chance. It's all I know Yeah Ohh I can't sit here while I go nowhere Chase my dreams through the polluted air Chase my dreams through the polluted air I'm walking on a wire I'm walking on a wire Running out of time There's no room in this ol' heart of mine Hungry minds just stare you in the eyes Spread it thick and lay the biggest lies Words jump off the pages Passion hits the street Anger's cooking in the city heat World's too crazy I can't take no more I won't stay here locked behind the door Got to stir it up I got to break it up now When I think about tomorrow Ooh, I can't wait to Stir it up Got to shake it up now If I have to beg or borrow I'm not gonna take it anymore Oh-oh oh-ohh-oh oh-ohh-oh Come on Oh-oh oh-ohh-oh oh-ohh-oh Come on So much pressure to keep holding on Whoa Pack my clothes up, baby I'll be gone Stir it up Got to break it up now When I think about tomorrow When I think about tomorrow I can't wait to Stir it up I can't wait to Stir it up I got to shake it up now I got to shake it up now If I have to beg or borrow If I have to beg or borrow I'm not gonna take it no more Lean to the left Lean to the right C'mon Acorns Fight, fight, fight! Go, Acorns! There's excitement in the air, ladies and gentlemen. It's been two decades since Oakey Oaks has beaten rivals the Spud Valley Taters. Down by only a single run, with a player in scoring position, we have a chance. This excitement isn't about the fun of baseball, the prize. It's about the gloating and rubbing their noses in it, the "Nah-nah-na-na-na! We beat you!" taunting - that comes with the winning. - Yeah! That's right. Oakey Oaks and Mayor Turkey Lurkey will finally have bragging rights again for one full year! This battle has taken a heavy toll on our hometown heroes. After nine grueling innings and several players out with injuries, the Acorns are scraping the bottom of the roster. Hopefully, there's just enough muscle on the bench to pull out a win. Up next... Chicken Little. Clearly a long shot, folks. Little hasn't been up to bat once since joining the team. - He's gonna lose the game for us! - But wait! If he can just get a walk and advance to first, that powerhouse, Foxy Loxy can step up and save us all. She's had a terrific game so far. A shoo-in for the MVP trophy. OK, kid, listen up. You have an itty-bitty, teeny-tiny strike zone. There's no way he can throw you out! Take the walk. Don't swing. - I have a good feeling... - Look at me. Don't swing. Take the walk. You hear me? Just take the walk! - But, coach, wait! - Don't swing! Nervous, gangly, barely able to hold the pine, Little advances to the box. He's going to bat from the right. Make it the left. No, the right. - The right. - Easy out! Looks like left field's found something better to do, center field's got a hunger pang in his second stomach - and right field's digging for grubs. - Play ball! Why him? Why now? I won't embarrass you, Dad. Not this time. Here's the wind-up, the pitch! It's a high cutter. Ball! Strike one! I'm not going to sugarcoat it. I've seen roadkill with faster reflexes. The catcher lays down the signals. Here's the pitch. Curve ball low and outside, he swings! Strike two! I said, don't swing! Don't swing! - No! - Batter up! Two in the hole! One more strike, it's a punch out, folks, and we're all going home. Today is a new day. Don't swing! Well, take away my squeaky toy! It's a hit! - A hit? - A hit? A hit? But wait! The batter is still at home plate. He's standing in a daze. Run, kid, run! Go, son! Run! Run! There he goes, headed the wrong way. - Wait, wait, wait! - No, no! Not that way! - Run the other way! - Turn around! Wait, wait! He's turned! I've never said these words before, but he's actually rounding home plate! - Goosey Loosey steps on home... - Today's a new day! We have a tie game! They're scrambling in the alley. Looks like Rodriguez has it. Nope, it's the center fielder! Mayhem in the outfield, as Rodriguez is fired to second. Catch is complete, but where's the ball? Little touches the bag and keeps going. A hunt for the rock. The fielders are having trouble. Commotion out there! - It's stuck! It's stuck! - Tip the cow! It's the old tip-the-cow play. The kid heads for the hot corner, a stand-up triple! - Yes! - Hold up! No! He's going for the whole enchilada! The ball of wax, kit and the caboodle! Go back! You're never gonna make it! He's trying to lighten his load! The outfield behind, Little's on all cylinders! He slides for the dish! It's going to be a photo finish at home! You're out! Oh, folks. Folks, what a heartbreaker. - Wait! - Wait, wait! Wait a cotton-picking second. Hold your horses, here, and horses hold your breath. This might not be over. He... He's... Safe! The runner is safe! It's all over, folks! The Acorns have done the impossible! For the first time in 20 years, we won the pennant! Mothers, kiss your babies! You've witnessed a miracle! Remember where you were at this moment. The smells! The sounds! There's a new winner in town and his name is Chicken Little! That was just a lucky hit! Yes, Chicken Little, it's all yours! The victory, the triumph, the glory! And getting doused with a sticky drink that soaks into your undies and chafes for hours! This is one memory you'll savor forever! Yeah! Yes, yes, yes! We won! We won!

You all right? I'm coming! I'm coming! I'm comin' upstairs! - What's wrong? - Nothing. You sure? I thought I heard you yell. No. I fell out of bed. - How'd you get over there? - Over where? - There. There! - Where? How'd you get over there? Who're we talking about? Never mind. What's the difference? Look, the past is behind us, right? Tomorrow's gonna be a new day. Please be gone, please be gone, please be gone... Good. No. No. I gotta call Abby! Yo, I'll tell you what I want What I really really want Tell me what you want What you really really want I'll tell you what I want What I really really want So tell me what you want What you really really want I wanna, I wanna I wanna, I wanna Really really really wanna zigazig ah If you wanna be my lover You gotta get with my friends - Gotta get with my friends - Make it last forever Friendship never ends If you wanna be my lover You have got to give Taking is too easy - But that's the way it is - Hello!

I'm a gutless flip-flopper. OK. I'm sure there's a simple, logical explanation. I mean, it could be a piece of weather balloon, or maybe it's part of some experimental communications satellite. I don't care. I want it out of my life, gone for good. Everything back to normal. Hey, remember when that icy blue stuff fell from the sky? Everybody thought it was from space and stuff? And it just turned out to be frozen pee from a jet airplane. Yeah, that's right. It's frozen pee. Yeah. It's frozen pee. Pee, pee, pee, pee pee. - Could you stop saying that? - What? Pee? - Pee. - Tinkle? - Piddle?

Take cover! Fish! - No! - Fish! Come on, come on, come on! Wait, wait, whoa, son! Where's the fire here? Chicken Little has something to tell you! Tell him. He can handle it. Who're we talkin' about? Gotta go, Dad! Bye! You got to be ready to listen to your children, even if they have nothing to say. - Sit tight, Fish! - Fish! We will try to save you! I'm sorry! Wait! Sorry! Curb! Fish! Abby! Abby! Wake up! Come on! Let's get outta here! Oh, poor Fish! He's probably stuffed and mounted like an intergalactic trophy or... ...maybe he's a half-living host implanted with face-hugging babies. One thing's for sure, man. He's gone! - Gone, man! - Not yet! Oh, snap. Fish. Hey! What are you doing? Come on! Fish. Fish. Fish. Fish. Where are you, Fish?! I can't handle the pressure!

Say something! Don't tap the glass. They hate it when you do that. All right, let's get out of here. Where's Runt? We're next. Run! OK! That's it! We're running back to your house. Tell your dad! OK! You're right, you're right! Stayin' alive, stayin' alive Stayin' alive Oh, Runt! Push! Push! No! - Runt! - No! Not pull! Push! We gotta get outta here right now! Come on... No! Come on, you guys! Hu... Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! OK, time out! So... have you been to the mall? Come on, buddy. Come on, buddy. I'm sorry. Tension makes me bloat. Come on, guys! Hurry, hurry, hurry! Look out! Thanks! Curse these genetically tiny legs! What's that noise? Sorry. Nervous eater. - Run! - Wait! Fish! The school bell! We've got to ring the school bell to warn everyone! Come on! Hurry! Hurry! Go! Go! It's locked! They're... they're comin'. I need a soda. Come on, buddy. Come on, buddy! - The corner's wrinkled! - Why are we doing this? Come on, take it, take it! Yes! Come on! Work! Work! Work! You work! What happened? I blacked out there for a second. The sky is falling! The sky is falling! It was just an acorn. A little acorn! I can't tell you how embarrassed I am, folks. Ring the bell! Come on, Chicken Little! Ring the bell! What? Let's check the weather with Riz. A cold front is moving in so... The alarm bell has been activated! Quick! Get a camera crew! Chicken Little! You better have a good explanation for this! There's, there's... It's a... You have to... D'oh! Doo wah! What did he say? There's... It's a... You have to... D'oh! Doo wah! Follow me! Come on! Hurry! Hurry! Aliens here! Aliens here! It's... it's happening again. Come on! Hurry! Hurry! Come on. Come on. You're about to see it! Quick! Quick! It's taking off! Come on! If you don't hurry, you're gonna miss it! Oh, look! A penny! - Guys! - Oh, right. Hurry! Hurry! Come on! Quick! It's taking off! Come on! Hurry up! Please! It's right in... - What are we lookin' for? - I don't know. Yeah. OK. I know this looks bad, but there's an invisible spaceship right there with aliens who are here to invade Earth! Let me show you. Bad throw. OK, let me try again. - Bad throw. - We all know I don't have a good arm, but there's these cloaking panels on the bottom. They make it disappear. One fell out of the sky and hit me right on the head. It's the acorn thing all over again. There's no story here. At least we can sell the video to Chickens Gone Wild. - I'm telling ya, it was here! - No, wait! There were aliens! It's true! They had eyes... They're glowing and then tentacles! And maps with planets with X's through them! Runt, that's enough! Don't make Mommy take away your Streisand collection! Mom? You leave Barbra out of this! Why can't you keep that child of yours under control? - What kind of parent are you? - Everybody, I'm telling the truth. Dad! Dad! I'm not making this up! You gotta believe me this time. No, son. I don't. I can't tell you how embarrassed I am, folks. I'm really sorry about this, everyone. Looks like this is just a big, crazy misunderstanding. Well, other than the penny, this whole evening was a wash! Mr. Cluck, don't take it so hard. No one blames you. Emergency, emergency! Send help! Reports of panic and mayhem are pouring in after yet another Chicken Little incident last night. In one instance, a family of lemmings was sent running in fear, but unable to find a cliff, they instead began throwing themselves - from the nearest park bench. - Hello? I'm sorry. Hello? I apologize. Hello? Give me break! Hello? What? You were trampled? That's terrible. I thought rabbits' feet were supposed to be lucky. You have hate mail. - I'm truly sorry. That wasn't funny. - You have more hate mail. Hi. What are you saying, sir? Your hate mail box is full. Oh, yes. I do see the skywriting there. Thank goodness the cloud blocked the last letter. Hello? Hey, hey, hey! Watch your mouth. Yeah? Oh, yeah? Well, I'd like to see you try. OK, I love you too, Mom. Bye. Hello? Really. Well... If there was ever a time to talk to your dad, it's now. It's too late for that. It's too late, baby, now it's too late. Though they really did try to make it. Runt. Just think about it. Something inside has died and they just can't hide and they just can't fake it. Oh, no, no. Runt, I just really want to be alone right now. Abby! Runt! Fish! Look! There! Look there! Look there! - What is that thing?! - Look at that! - His name is Kirby? - They left him behind? Darth Vader is Luke's father? No, don't... Come on, come on, don't cry. We're here for you. We're gonna do whatever it takes to get you back home. Here, blow. OK. See, guys? He's cool. He was just freaked out. That's all. Run! Those are your parents? And they brought the galactic armada? - Watch out for the kid! Don't hit him! - There you are. Get in the car. - I gotta tell you something. - What? I know, I know! You were right! Alien invasion. I see that now. - Look up! There it is! - Dad, you know, about that... - It's actually just a rescue mission. - Rescue mission? This alien kid was left and they're coming back to get him! We have to help him, 'cause if we don't, who else will? What?! Forget it. You wouldn't believe me anyway. Son! Son, come back! Son! Chicken Little! Mr. Cluck! Wait! He's telling the truth! He is! Though, given his track record, we understand why you don't believe him! It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it Is there any sign of him? Negative. We'll have to send in the ground troops. And I feel fine It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it And I feel fine Watch out for the kid! No! Don't! Don't hit him! Don't hit... Look out! Chicken Little! What? Where's your head? We gotta get outta here! Come on! Come o... - You, with the running and the jumping! - Dad. No, wait. What are you guys doing? We gotta get outta here! It's like War of the Worlds out there! - Stop pulling! - Just listen to me for one second! - It's not dangerous! - We are under attack! Will you two stop messing around and deal with the problem? - You're never there for me! - What? OK, that's not what I had in mind, but... You're never there for me. I mean, you were when I won the game, but not when I thought the sky fell. And not at the ball field and not now! This is good! Keep going. Keep going! You've been ashamed since the acorn thing. We have to talk because Modern Mallard says avoiding closure can lead to molting. I'm already small and I don't think I could handle being bald! I didn't... realize, son. I never meant to... The acorn, the sky, I mean, the whole... You're right. You're right. Your mom, she was... You know, she was always good with stuff like this. Me... ...l'm gonna need a lot of work. But you need to know that I love you, no matter what. And I'm sorry I... And I'm sorry if I ever made you feel like that was something... had to earn. And we're good. Let's go. Let's go. OK, Dad. Now, all we gotta do is return helpless little Kirby. OK, Dad. Now, all we gotta do is return helpless little Kirby. Return this whatever it is? This is crazy! Crazy! Crazy wonderful! Just tell me what you need me to do. - Do you really mean it? - You bet! Anything, son. Come on, Dad. We've got a planet to save! Crazy supportive. That's me! This thing likes to nibble, doesn't it? By the way, I'd like to say I've always found you extremely attractive! Now that's closure. Wait! Wait! What's goin' on?! They've given her an alien mind-wipe! OK, son. What do we do now? OK. This is a piece of cake, Dad. All we have to do is take the kid down the street to the giant metal alien. We surrender! Here! Take the key to the city! Key to my car? Tic Tac? Forget plan A! OK, OK, what now, son? Who, by the way, I support 100 percent. - Plan B? - Of course! Plan B! What is plan B? What? You have to go to the bathroom? You want juice? A snack? Corn dog on a stick? Want to play some golf? What do you want?! I stink at this. I'm a horrible father. No, no, no, I am. I am. Is that your parents? That's it, Dad! Plan B! All we have to do is weave through traffic through town square while avoiding death rays from alien robots. We get to Town Hall, climb up to the roof and give the kid back to its parents. Yeah! Charge! Now that's what I call takin' out the trash! OK, son. Now what? Fire truck! Plan C! Runt, no! Turn around! - Go back to Town Hall! - But they'll vaporize us! - You want me to do what? - Runt, just do it! Lt'll work! We'll survive! I will survive? Brake, Abby! OK. Floor it! Deploy ladder, Fish! I'll survive I will survive Hey, hey Plan D. Thighs hurting. Drumsticks burning. But loving you! Full support! I can't get out! Come back, son! We can't go out this way! It's dangerous. - No, Dad, I can do this! - It's too dangerous. I can do this. I can. You gotta believe me this time. I... I do, son. OK, hang on tight. - Yes! - Here's your kid! Look over here! Here's your kid! He's OK! He's all right! Stop the invasion! Son! Son! - I'm here, son! - Dad! Look out! Get away from my boy! Get away! The mighty Acorns... Tic Tac? Why did you take our child? Just... Just hold on there, buddy! My son did not take your kid! You were the one that left him behind! That's bad parenting! And I should know! Silence! Release the child! - OK. - OK, OK. Sweetheart! Oh, Kirby, I'm so happy to see you! My darling! - That was close. - At least they're back together. They got their kid. You have violated intergalactic law 90210! A charge punishable by immediate particle disintegration! Oh, snap. What's that? I don't quite... Melvin, honey? He's saying they're telling the truth. It was just a misunderstanding. Well, then. This is awkward. - Yes, it is. - I suppose I should... - Put the big guns away? - Yes, yes. - Now put them down. - Of course. - And turn off your big voice. - But I don't... - Turn it off. - But... But I don't get to use the big voice very often! Melvin. Yes, dear. Hi. Anyone want to try the big voice? Again, I cannot tell you how sorry we are for this whole misunderstanding. Oh, dear goodness. We are so very sorry. We are. And if it hadn't been for your son there, well, we might have vaporized the whole planet. What? Goodness! What a shame that would have been. - Tell 'em! - Where would we pick acorns? We stop here on the way to the in-laws. - Every year. - Looked on all the other planets. - You only find them on Earth. - It says here. That caught our eyes. OK, everything's been put back to normal, except for this one, over here. Hi, y'all! Foxy? Lollipop, lollipop Oh, lolli lolli lolli Lollipop... She got her brainwaves scrambled during reconstitution. No worries! We can put her back the way she was. No! She's perfect. Lollipop! Lollipop! Scary. Darling! Look at the time! We better get a move on. All right, then. It was good meetin' ya. Sorry for the whole full-scale invasion thing. But, hey, I'm a dad. You know how it is with your kids. When they need ya, you do whatever it takes. There goes that panel again. Every year we come, this thing falls off. Seriously, honey, someday it's going to hit somebody on the head. - Nonsense! - You can't return the panel, can you? - Now that's ridiculous. - You threw away the receipt again. Silence! Melvin, did you just try and use the big voice on me? Who we talkin' about? So I'd like to see the movie they make about you now. So I'd like to see the movie they make about you now. I just hope they stay true to what really happened. Oh, son, these people are from Hollywood! One thing they'll never do... mess with a good story. mess with a good story. Red alert! Man your battle stations! Status report, Mr. Fish. Commander Little, the evil Foxloxian Army has broken through the planet's atmosphere. But that means... Yes, I know. The sky... is falling. Commander Little! No! Please... call me... ...Ace. Oh, Ace! No! I never intended to bring you into this... Abby. - Runt, do you copy? - Yes, commander? Runt, my friend, an alien fleet is about to invade Earth. Civilization as we know it depends on me and, to a lesser extent... you. So I've just got one question for you: Are you ready to rock? Ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley low... Ain't no mountain high enough Raise your pork shield, Runt. Prepare to engage. Stay on target. Stay on target! Give 'em a taste of the other white meat! Cap'n! Look out! Runt! Runt, are you all right? No, no. Ya gotta go on without me, commander. Just leave me some ammo, a little water, some chips if you have 'em. This is amazingly accurate. He was my good friend. Oh, Abby. At least I still have you... Abby. - Ace! - Abby. - Ace! - Abby. Ace! Good people of Oakey Oaks. Though at times it may feel like the sky is falling around you, never give up. For every day... is a new day! A new day! Ain't no mountain high enough Ain't no valley low enough Oh, Ace! To keep me from you Ain't no mountain high enough Ain't no valley low enough Ain't no river wild enough To keep me from you Ain't no mountain high enough Nothing can keep me Keep me from you Ain't no mountain high enough Nothing can keep me Keep me from you Ain't no mountain high enough Ain't no valley low enough Ain't no river wild enough To keep me from you To keep me from you Nothing in this world Nothing in this world Can keep me from you, babe Just call my name Don't go breaking my heart I couldn't if I tried Oh, honey, if I get restless Baby, you're not that kind And nobody knows it - When I was down - I was your clown And nobody knows it Nobody knows

Current mood:  quiet

Hey!!!! I used to have a blog like this like, 10 years ago so it's nice to have found something just like it :)It's been fun decorating my page and i'm still working on it. I have some time now that I don't have work until Monday. I'm probably gonna be down for the next few days since it's a bit rainy out (for the next 6 days I heard :/) and everything is pretty painful, especially my tongue and legs, recently. My friend just left for his new job in California too. This is kinda a boring post because I don't really have anything going on right now besides a ton of laundry and some doctors appointments. There's barely hours at work and I don't go to college until September.How are you? Is anyone reading this? How did you find this site? Who are you???? Am I yelling into a void??

Valuable Information for people interested in joining Christianity/Catholicism
Current mood:  enlightened

Interested In Becoming a Christian Catholic? Here Is Some Useful Information For YouBy:Constantine Adams6/12/2019The hierarchy of the Catholic Church consists of four main players. (1) The Pope, (2) the Bishops, (3) the Priests, and (4) the Catholic believers or congregation according to                 The Pope is officially the main head of the Catholic denomination after Jesus Christ.  The Bishops run 2,946 diocese districts and cathedrals, the Priests run 219, 583 parishes, and overall; the Catholic believers consist of 1 billion members worldwide. There are also a total of at least 30 branches of Roman Catholic denominations in the world today.                 The Pope is also known as “The Patriarch” amongst many other names. Patriarch translates to “the title of a most senior Orthodox or Catholic bishop.” The Pope is responsible of the upholding of 3 positions. The first, is to be the priest who preaches at the pulpit of St. John Lateran Basilica on a day to day basis just like any other parish priest. His second duty is to display his leadership as the Bishop of the Diocese of the city of Rome. And thirdly, to uphold his post as Pope, by being head of the Universal Church. St. John Lateran Basilica, “where the Pope serves as a parish priest, “ is a basic local Church where every day Catholic believers come to pray, worship, and hear the Gospel.(                 St. John Lateran Basilica serves as a mother Church that monitors the diocese factions. In simpler terms, the local parish of St, John Lateran is the main overseer of other local Catholic Churches that fall under the umbrella of it’s local geographical location. This is what a “diocese” is.  The Pope who leads that particular parish is also coined with the title of “Ruler of the Bishops.”                 Now, the Cardinals on the other hand, possess no particular power in the Catholic Church. They can claim no authority over their fellow Bishops or Priests. The Pope chooses the Cardinals out of the 2,946 Bishops and officially appoints them to that post. The title of a Cardinal member can be described as a cabinet member in the Canadian or British Government. If the Pope serves as a “Prime Minister” of sorts, and withholds full authority, then the Cardinals serve as the hundreds of “Members of his Holy Parliament.” These “Members of Parliament,” deal with a Bishop and then control over a specified territory. From these Cardinals, the Pope then chooses about 15 out of the larger group to fill other personalized posts like “Defense Minister,” “Trade Minister,” and “Environment Minister.”( Just like in the British government, when the cabinet members have no power over the “back benchers” or non-cabinet members, the Cardinals hold no power over the Bishops. Therefore, Cardinals are just Bishops with additional specified powers to wield, but don’t rank over anyone outside their own diocese’s jurisdiction. Cardinals also serve as the Pope’s official advisory panel, and are given the responsibilities of electing new Pope when the old one passes away.   Prayer To Our Lady Of Perpetual Help                 Behold O Mother of Perpetual Help, at thy feet a wretched sinner, who has recourse to thee and trusts in thee. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me; I hear all men call thee the refuge and my hope. Help me for the love of Jesus Christ: hold out thy hand to a fallen wretch, who commends himself to thee and dedicates himself to be thy servant forever. I praise and thank God, who of His great mercy hath given me this confidence in thee, a sure pledge of my eternal salvation. Alas, it is only too true that in the past I have fallen miserably, because I did not come to thee. I know that with thy help I shall conquer; I know that thou wilt help me, if I commend myself to thee; but I am fearful lest in the occasions of sin I shall forget to call upon thee and so I shall be lost. This grace, then, do I ask of thee; for this I implore thee, as much as I can and know to do; namely, that in the assaults of hell I may ever run to thy protection and may say to thee: Mary, help me; Mother of Perpetual Help, permit me not to lose my God. (Hail Mary) O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant me ever to be able to call upon thy powerful name, since thy name is the help of the living and the salvation of the dying. Ah, Mary most pure , Mary most sweet, grant that thy name from this day forth may be to me the very breath of life. Dear Lady, delay not to come to my assistance whenever I call upon thee; for in all the temptations that assail me, in all the necessities that befall me, I will never leave off calling upon thee, ever repeating; Mary, Mary, what comfort, what sweetness, what confidence, what tenderness fills my soul at the sound of thy name, at the very thought of thee! I give thanks to our Lord, who for my sake hath given thee a name so sweet, so lovable, so mighty. But I am not content merely to speak thy name; I would utter it for very love of thee; it is my desire that love should ever remind me to name thee, Mother of Perpetual Help. (Hail Mary) Oh Mother of Perpetual Help, thou art the dispenser of every grace that God grants us in our misery; it is for this cause that He hath made thee so powerful, so rich, so kind, that thou mightiest assist us in our miseries, Thou art the advocate of the most wretched and abandoned sinners, if they but come unto thee; come once more to my assistance, for I comment myself to thee. In thy hands I place my eternal salvation; to thee I entrust my soul. Enroll me among thy most faithful servants; take me under thy protection and it is enough for me: yes, for it thou protect me, I shall fear nothing; not my sins, for thou wilt obtain for their pardon and remission; not the evil spirits, for thou are mightier than all the powers of hell; not even Jesus, my Judge, for he is appeased by a single prayer form thee. I fear only that through my own negligence I may forget to recommend myself to thee and so I shall be lost. My dear Lady, obtain for me the forgiveness of m sins, love for Jesus, final perseverance and the grace to have recourse to thee at all times, O Mother of Perpetual Help. (Hail Mary) The prayer is important to Catholics because it is used to encourage the strengthening of marriages, to combat sickness, and to help the poverty stricken gain better employment. (                 Saint Anthony Claret Catholic Church is located on 1450 East La Palma, in Anaheim, California 92805-1551. It is lead by Pastor Rudolph J. Preciado. It’s Parochial Vicars are Reverent Hieu T. Nguyen and Reverent Benjamin D. Hoang. It’s Deacons are Mr. August Mones, Jose Luis Reynoso, and Salvador Sanchez.                 Saint Anthony Claret Catholic Church is a very small, but elaborate Church. It possesses a particular artistic sort of architecture and is very detailed. The doors at the entrance of the Church have big Jesus Crosses cut into them. The floor plan of the Church is also shaped like a gigantic Crucifix. It has beautiful wooden pews, and has a Crucifix engraved at the ends of each one. On each of the side walls of the Church, there are what are called “The Stations of the Cross Statues” each depicting the different moments of Christ’s crucifixion. Right above these pieces of art work are beautifully crafted stain glass windows with pictures of Saints lining the walls of the Church all the way down the alter on each side. At the head of the alter, right over the Pastor’s pulpit, is a huge statue of a Crucifix. In my first visit, Jesus Christ was on the Cross; but after I went back the day before Easter,  Jesus Christ was covered with a red veil. This is very important, because it symbolizes that Christ is within His tomb for the moment and is hidden from the world, until he rises again on Easter Sunday. To the left of this display, is another statue of The Virgin Mary and Joseph looking over a baby Jesus. Baby Jesus is depicted as a little boy, no older than the age of 3, and is clinging to His earthly father’s feet. To the far right of the Pastor’s pulpit, there is another piece of artwork. This time it is a mural of fire swirling with the Holy Spirit. At the very back of the Church, behind all of the parishioners and the pews, is a balcony overseeing them. Here is where there music equipment is displayed, apart from the two guitar players and the other organ player on the stage behind the Pastor. In the left-center of the Church there is what they call a quite area where believers can go inside and pray in peace, or where parents can take their small children to calm them down. The rooms are laced with sound proof glass. Another interesting fact was that the Pastor would let people from the congregation go up and read scriptures from the Holy Bible.                 In a sit down interview with Reverent Benjamin D. Hoang, he explained to me the various occupations, programs, and duties of the people within Saint Anthony Claret Church. He told me that every Church is different, and each one has it’s own customs. Their Church in particular possesses a Parish Manager, Official Church Secretary, Financial Council, Pastoral Council, Catechists{or those of which who teach Catechism}, an RCIA Program that is geared to teach classes to new comers of the Faith, and to teach them what it really means to be Catholic, a house keeper, security, maintenance crew, youth ministry, Religious Education Program, which is also geared towards children, marriage preparation, and confirmation.       4/19/14 Mass Service Titled; “A Holy Saturday-The Morning Prayer Anointing”                 The day’s Mass was primarily emphasizing Jesus Christ’s Divine Death and Resurrection. It was an English and Spanish speaking service, but the main point was the same. “Be intent on God, through whom we have redemption and the forgiveness of our sins.”                 Pastor Rudolph J. Preciado was wearing a pure white gown with a purple prayer shawl draped over his shoulders. He opened up that Saturday Mass with a “Greeting” then he had the congregation break out in the singing of “Celebrant Lord, Open My Eyes.” All of the congregation then commenced with the prayer “And my mouth will proclaim your praise …response.” Then Pastor Preciado led the congregation in the hymn “Celebrate: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”                 Soon after, Pastor Preciado exclaimed that “As it was in the beginning, it is now, and will be forever.” He explained Jesus Christ’s place on the thrown in Heaven. The Pastor then delved into Psalm 64 for the morning’s first reading. The morning’s second reading consisted of Psalm 150, “The Canticle of Isaiah.” He derived his third reading from the “Canticle of Zechariah.” The readings were quickly followed up by an intercession of music and hymns. The songs and prayers of this Mass were much different than the one’s that were used during the Wednesday Mass that I had attended a few weeks ago. At the first Mass I attended, the congregation preformed the “Act of Consecration,” “Prayer In Temperal Wants,” “Mother Dear, O’Pray For Me,” “The Thanksgiving Prayer,” and “Our Mother of Perpetual Help”(prayer). As the Saturday Mass commenced, all of the congregation would reply “Lord have mercy on us,” several times as the Pastor prayed. Pastor Preciado then went into a lecture: “Christ our Savior, your sorrowing Mother stood by you at your death and burial. Christ the Good Shepherd in death you lay hidden from the world.” He then led the congregation in the “Our Father Prayer,” to which the congregation replied loudly “Amen!” Pastor Preciado then dismissed his congregation by exclaiming “Thanks be to God!”

Catholic Church Holy Rituals
Current mood:  cheerful

Rituals of The Catholic ChurchBy:Constantine Adams6/12/2019                 Overall, the Catholic believers consist of 1 billion members worldwide. There are also a total of at least 30 branches of Roman Catholic denominations in the world today.( All have their own individual way of conducting certain rituals, but ultimately; they all keep within the same original traditions of the Faith and Church. Now, with each ritual comes the blessings and responsibilities that come along with it. Each ritual has its own significance and specific importance to the individuals who are receiving the blessing, and the congregation as a whole. (                 The spiritual journey of a Catholic believer starts out with what the Church calls “The Sacraments of Initiation.”  The first step in the process is called the “Rite of Initiation.” Usually believers are immediately baptized right after their very own birth, and the Confirmation and Eucharist are preformed much later. It is explained that through the sacraments, a believer is then freed from the power of darkness. Along with The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they too die, are buried, and through Him; triumph and rise again. (McBrien pg.805-806) Through this initiation method, the believer then receives the Spirit of Adoption. This then transforms them into God’s Children, and as God’s people; they together celebrate the memorial of the Lord’s death and resurrection. Another important point to note, is that through the motions of baptism, believers are then officially incorporated into Christ. (McBrien pg.806) By then being thoroughly transformed into God’s people, they then receive full forgiveness of all of their faults and sins. This realization signifies the believers being thus; further raised from their old natural human condition and being molded into the new dignity of Christ’s adopted children. The result is the transformation into a new creation brought about by the Holy Water and the Holy Spirit. After all of this is completed, they take upon the title and honor of being able to be called Christ’s Children!(McBrien pg.806)                 The Holy Rite of Baptism goes as follows. First, it is usually celebrated during the Easter Vigil, but if that is not possible during that certain time; then the whole Ceremony would then have to be done in a rather celebratory way as if the parties involved were in fact celebrating with the Spirit of Easter. The process then commences with instruction from the celebrant, then it is followed with a litany. (McBrien pg.815) The Holy Baptizing Water is then thoroughly prayed over and lucifer is then renunciated in the Mighty Name Of Jesus Christ! Next, the anointing with the oil of catechumens, and the profession of Faith. The pouring of the Holy Water is then preformed followed closely by the invocation of the Holy Trinity regarding the name of the person who is officially being Baptized. The individual is then called out by name and is Baptized by The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost. This is also known as the Trinitarian Formula. Anointing, the clothing with the white garment, and the presentation of the lighted candle then come next to conclude the Divine process.(McBrien pg.815)                 The next step that a Catholic believer must follow through with, is the ritual of the Eucharist. The Eucharist is very important because it deals with one of the three situations concerning Christ’s Holy Body and Blood. It symbolizes Christ’s sacrifice using the Consecration of the Mass, Holy Communion, and the Blessed Sacrament. The Eucharist is also considered the most important of all seven Sacraments to the Catholic people.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.105) Catholics firmly believe that during the ritual, the bread and wine are not only the body and blood of Jesus Christ; but are actually the soul and divinity of the Messiah. “Real Presence” is the term used during this very sacred time, because it symbolizes the Catholic believers as being able to really sense Christ’s presence in the room with them.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.105) M. Basil Pennington’s book “The Eucharist: Wine of Faith, Bread of Wine,” states that “The creed makes us aware of our dependence: God is the Maker, we are the made; God is the Savior, we are the saved. It makes us aware, too, of how much we are loved: “for us and our salvation.” It makes us aware of what has been promised to us, and so we can confidently pray.”(Pennington pg.35)                 The term “Eucharist” is a derivative from the Greek pronunciation “Eucharistein,” which translates in modern day English as “Thanks Giving.” In this particular instance, the Catholic folks are taking this specific time to give thanks to Jesus for providing them with the bread from Heaven. This bread from Heaven is the Holy Eucharist, and is necessary to feed, uplift, and nourish their souls!(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.105) Jesus Christ also gave thanks at The Last Supper as stated in (Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 11:24; Mark 14:23; Matthew 26:27). In the time of Christ, meals shared with people symbolized concepts like peace, trust, and communality.(McBrien pg.820) This next quotation straight out of Richard P. McBrien’s book “Catholicism,” further sums up the true ancient essence of preforming the Eucharist. “But Jesus identified the bread and wine with his own body and blood. And sensing his own impending death, he speaks of himself as a sacrifice. Just as the unleavened bread is broken, so will his body be broken. And just as the wine is poured out, so will his blood. All four texts agree that Jesus’ death is an atonement and establishes a new Covenant. The Jews, in fact, regarded every death of an innocent person as an atoning death, and Jesus saw his own death in this light.” (McBrien pg.821)                 The concept of Conformation is another big step that a Catholic believer must take in according to the fulfillment of the overall rite of passage . This serves as a sort of “coming of age” moment for a Catholic believer as they become more fully and thoroughly molded into the Body of Jesus Christ. The whole and primary objective of the art of Conformation, is to further strengthen, grow, and mature the soul of the believer. It is rather properly explained in Brighenti and Trigilio’s book “Catholicism for Dummies,” where it states “It builds on what was begun in Baptism and what was nourished in Holy Eucharist. It completes the process of initiation into the Christian community, and it matures the soul for the work ahead.”(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109)                 Brighenti and Trigilio also state that “The Byzantine Church confirms (chrismates) at Baptism and gives Holy Eucharist as well, thus initiating the new Christian all at the same time.”(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109) When a Catholic believer is just a baby, the Church holds a great ceremony where the child’s parents and new God Parents all unite before a Bishop to dedicate the young one to the safety and glory of Jesus Christ. The soul of the child is then dedicated to the fellowship of God. Yet, at Confirmation, the same vow to The Savior is then being renewed by the child at an older age. This way, it shows the child as taking the responsibility, honor, and initiative in means of upholding this Holy creed and vow for themselves; without the influence or meddling of their parents or God Parents.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109) Still, it is required that a new Catholic believer must commence in the completion of CCD or (Confraternity of Christian Doctrine) before this whole process can be followed through with. “Confraternity of Christian Doctrine” are just a set of prerequisite religious educational classes that are used to prepare the new believer for their spiritual journey that is at hand.                 It is known in the Catholic community that the Holy Spirit is first bestowed upon a new believer the very first moment that they are baptized in the Holy Water. In the midst of the ceremony, the Holy Trinity is set upon them, thus symbolizing The Father, Son, and The Holy Ghost. Now, at Confirmation, all three entities once again are set on the new believer at the same time as a reflection of Pentecost.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109)                 (Acts 2:1-4) thus, references “The Feast of Pentecost” where the Holy Spirit descended out of Heaven to earth where it’s power was bestowed upon the 12 apostles and Jesus Christ’s mother, the Virgin Mary. The occasion took place for 50 days after Easter and exactly 10 days after Jesus Christ commenced in His Ascension.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109) The 12 apostles were then given certain special gifts from Christ and the Holy Spirit at this time. These gifts or “fruits of the Spirit,” were charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, long-suffering, mildness, faith, modesty, continency, and chastity. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.110) These gifts are then further strengthened by the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit also granted the apostles the gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and the fear of the Lord. These final seven gifts are known as supernatural graces that are bestowed generously upon the soul of the believer. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.110)                 There are a total of four major steps when completing the Sacrament of Conformation. First off, the Confirmation ceremony takes place within the Mass itself, or can take place outside of it. In either instance, the Bishop will traditionally come dressed in his red vestments to symbolize the red tongues of fire that were seen hovering over the heads of the apostles at Pentecost. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.110) Next, the believer that is going to be Confirmed steps forth accompanied by their sponsor. Canonical requirements concerning God Parents in the Baptism Ceremony also apply to the concept concerning the ceremony for Conformation. When looking at Baptism, the child’s parents pick out their God Parents, but for Confirmation; the child picks out their own sponsor for the ceremony. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111) The child can choose their original God Parents again, or they can select someone new that they would like to also include in their rite of passage.  The only requirement is that the sponsor has to be a believer themselves, and they have to be older than the age of 16. One sponsor is chosen for Confirmation, while usually two are chosen at Baptism. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111) Thirdly, the new Catholic believer is then presented with the option of whether or not they want to choose a new extra name to add on to their original official name. When a child is Baptized, the parents named them. The child at that point had no say so in the ordeal, but at Confirmation; an additional name can be chosen by the individual believer for themselves! (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)  This can be exciting for the believer if they choose to add this new name in between their original first and middle name, or they can just bypass this whole scenario and keep their original name the way it was. The only stipulation is that if the new believer were to choose a new name, they would have to only choose a Christian name from the Bible. It could be a Saint or a hero in the Holy Bible. Yet, one cannot choose a villain from the Bible as their name, like Goliath or Pharaoh for example. Also secular names are not proper to choose from for such an occasion. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)                 Lastly, the new believer that is now being Confirmed either kneels or stands in front of the Bishop who is overseeing them. The believer’s sponsor then places a hand on their shoulder. The new believers Confirmation name is then spoken by the Bishop who then places Chrism Oil onto the new believer’s forehead. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)  The Bishop then addresses the new believer by their new name and says to them “Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit.” After the new believer will then respond with “Amen.” The Bishop will then answer them with “peace be with you.” The new believer would then respond with “And with your spirit.” (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)                 Usually, the process of Conforming new Catholics is the Bishop’s responsibility amongst his own specific diocese. Although, just normal priests can be given the right to Confirm grown-ups who are converting to Catholicism from another religion. This happens when the people involved are brought into the full Communion with the Roman Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil and they’ve attended the “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults” or (RCIA) program at the Church. Non-believers who are trying to convert to the Faith are obligated to take these classes.” (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)                 In a sit down interview with Reverent Benjamin D. Hoang, he explained to me the various occupations, programs, and duties of the people within Saint Anthony Claret Church. He told me that every Church is different, and each one has it’s own customs. Their Church in particular possesses a Parish Manager, Official Church Secretary, Financial Council, Pastoral Council, Catechists{or those of which who teach Catechism}, an RCIA Program that is geared to teach classes to new comers of the Faith, and to teach them what it really means to be Catholic, a house keeper, security, maintenance crew, youth ministry, Religious Education Program, which is also geared towards children, marriage preparation, and Confirmation. “The RCIA Programs are very important,” says Reverent Hoang. “We emphasize these, because it is essential to the new comers of the Faith to properly learn about what it is to uphold the title if being a Catholic, and how to properly conduct themselves in society after they have walked that route and transformed their lives.”                 Ultimately, people are all looking for something more in life, they are reaching out for something from deeper within their hearts, souls, and spirits. People want to get closer to God, to get closer to the Messiah…Jesus Christ. Catholicism provides people with a clear route, and a rite of passage to achieve this. The Holy Sacraments of Catholicism are beautiful it the way that it provides people with a sort of Divine blue print that follows them from birth, to adolescence, to adulthood, to marriage, and then to their very last breathe. Catholicism’s Sacraments are truly a celebration of Christ’s gift of life. It is an enduring and heartfelt process that pushes believers physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It’s a growth process that is well worth it, for it teaches Catholics that one can triumph over the hard times in life, and that with a focused sense of determination and discipline; one can resist the temptations of satan to become a better person. Yet, I think that the main point and purpose of the Catholic rite of passage is to show that every moment of life can be celebrated as a miracle; and all things are possible through Jesus Christ!                                                                                    Work Cited Page Brighenti, Kenneth and Trigilio, John. “Catholicism For Dummies.” Indiana: Wiley Publishing, 2003.

The Walter Dominguez Story: Fighting Communism/NWO In Mexico
Current mood:  adventurous

Journey To RevelationBy: Constantine Adams6/12/2019                 A man stands gazing before a vast ocean as it crashes along a rocky beach. The sun is now setting in the West as it is now casting its last rays of light over Southern California. The man stays staring at the roaring blue Pacific. Its might and influence is far reaching, a lot like life. Yet, it is deep and in many cases, it is everlasting. The sea’s depths hold many epic tales, many adventures, and many secrets. This is where the calamity lies. It is the secrets, the fear of the unknown, that is the most intimidating. To unlock these secrets, it often takes a hero that is willing to step up and go against the grain in order to uncover the truth, no matter how treacherous or self-destructive the path may be. In this particular storyline, our hero is that of a man by the name of Walter Dominguez. His quest that he has willingly chosen, is to track down the crossroads of his grandfather Emilio N. Hernandez, and to possibly unlock the legacy of his entire family’s history.                 Walter Dominguez was very close to his grandfather Emilio Hernandez, who he warmly called “Tata.” In many cases, Tata taught Walter a lot about Jesus Christ, Faith, love, life, and how to be a man. Walter grew up and was widely raised by Tata in the rural region of Santa Paula, California. Grandpa Tata was a very important and influential person in not only Walter’s life, but in the lives of many across Mexico, as well as in the United States. Still, just how influential and important was Tata to all of these people across these two neighboring counties? Walter was about to find out.                 Walter decided to capture his journey of truth and revelation on film, and documented everything live as it happened. Each and every new and fascinating discovery was then implemented into his documentary film titled “Weaving The Past: Journey of Discovery.”                 “We initially started production in 2001, but we didn’t finish editing until 2013,”says Dominguez. “We were still making adjustments all the way through 2014. We had to further sift through archival photos, music, and film clippings. Then we had to get the legal rights to use all of the information. This process took a year in itself.” Overall the film “Weaving The Past,” took 13 years  to complete. Another hardship that Walter and his crew had to overcome was the change in technology as the decade pressed onward.                 “Everything had to be converted from the old style of video tape to hi-definition and digital formats. Plus, real life issues got in the way. My father, who was helping me track down people for the film, was already ill. He would later pass away halfway through the production. I broke down whenever I had to view and edit the old footage of him. Still, I knew I had to do this, and I thought about all of the people who would be inspired by my film. I couldn’t just stop and quit.”  Walter felt compelled to complete this mission after he lost his Grandpa Tata in the year of 1973 on Memorial Day weekend. At the young and tender age of 25, Walter could not bear to view his beloved grandfather in such a frail condition and could not bring himself to visit Tata in his last days. Walter also could not muster up the strength to comfort his own father during such a trying time. Now empowered by a seething need to redeem himself and to find closure, Walter promises his parents Maria and Roberto Dominguez, that he would uncover all of the facts about his grandfather’s life, and will track down all of Tata’s long lost relatives in the streets of Mexico. “I wasn’t there for Tata when he passed. It hurts me that he was calling and calling for my name, and I was not there to answer. I was also not there for my mother and father when they were going through this. Tata was the one who saved me. My parents were going through some really stressful marital problems, and Tata was the one who took me in. He was the one who raised me. This film really helped me to redeem myself. I had to make an effort for not being there for him. Overall, this film gave my soul a sense of completion,” explains Dominguez.                 Emilio N. Hernandez was born on August 5, in the year of 1888 in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. It was a mountain range type of region, and was very rural. Hernandez would grow up to be a very inspirational Christian Methodist Pastor that would lead many to the Holy Word of Jesus Christ. Still, what Walter did not know was that his Grandpa Tata was not only a man of strong Faith, but was also a valiant and resourceful political revolutionary during the Mexican Revolution that lasted from 1910 to the year of 1920. Tata himself was on an epic quest of his own just like Walter was so many generations later. The only difference was that where Walter was trying to further liberate himself in a way, Tata was trying to liberate a whole nation and all of its indigenous people. Tata was a strong believer in both social and economic justice, and was willing to sacrifice his own life and limb to uphold these liberties for all humanity.                 The origins of Tata’s legacy would begin to transpire the age of five when he would be forced to run away from his mountain home in Mexico do to a grotesquely abusive and alcoholic step-father.  Tata unfortunately never got to ever meet his true biological father, and only knew of him to be of Aztec Indian dissent. With all of the chaos that his step-father was causing, Tata now had to leave his fair skinned Hispanic and European mother, and his sister.“I always knew that my Grandfather Tata had a very dark and gloomy past. He would always try to avoid any questions about it. Tata would give the family bits and glimpses of his childhood and life, but would not want to elaborate,” says Dominguez.                 One night, Tata would flee from the only home that he knew, and would wonder through over 30 kilometers of the rugged mountain terrain of Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. He would eventually stumble upon the property prestigiously known in that era as “Los Altos de Ibarra,” where a family named the Guerrero’s would sympathize with the small boy, and would take him in as their own. Tata would eventually work there as a shepherd, and would later be taken under the wing of both Praxedis “Prax”  G. Guerrero, and his sister Clotilde.                 Yet, it would be Praxedis who would have more of a huge influence on the young and vibrant Tata. Praxediswould grow to be tired of the cruel and vicious tyrannical dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz. At the time of Diaz’ reign of terror over all of Mexico, the wealthy elite were exploiting the Native poor in the country. The Haciendas worked as a form of a modern day“Encomienda System,” and  were used to turn the Indio-Mexicans into slaves in their own nation, thus, resulting in the 900 slave owners to rule over the 9 million poor. He and Tata would unite to help lead the Mexican Revolution with the creation of their political newspaper titled “Regeneration.”Praxedis and Tata would inspire many Mexican Natives to take up arms, join the revolution, and utilize both urban and guerilla warfare to try to overthrow Diaz and his authoritarian regime.Soon though, Diaz would get word of this. Diaz would then target all of his political enemies, and would then put both Tata and Praxedis on his personal hit list. He sent troops after the two anarchists and forced Tata and Praxedis to flee to the United States of America to seek refuge and possible political asylum.                 This experience of fleeing their home country of Mexico, and coming to America would then lead to Tata Hernandez and Praxedis Guerrero to start fighting for the plight of the Mexican laborers here in the United States who were being mistreated. Tata would then later come into contact with Wilfred Wallenius and Reverend Vernon McCombs, and the rest is history in means of his spiritual path to finding Jesus Christ.                 Interestingly enough, Walter was able to draw some parallels of the social issues of Tata’s generation in Mexico to his own environment as far as America’s current state is concerned. “We are seeing the exact same kind of oppression here in the United States,” explains Dominguez. “America’s middle class is dying and extreme poverty is on the rise. It is now very hard for our youth to even survive. When we look at Wall Street and how our government has poured billions of dollars into these private corporations it raises concern.”                 Walter is a strong believer in American’s right to vote, and feels that it is only right that fellow citizens do so in order to have a proper stake in the future outcome of our nation’s leadership.  “As frustrating and discouraging as the whole process may be, it is essential to keep power out of the hands of money hungry tyrants who wish to exploit the public and generate revenue only for themselves,” says Dominguez. “We as Americans should never underestimate the power of an individual. Look at what Tata was able to accomplish with his life. The people have the power and right to fight back.”                 It was the accumulation of the United States’ various social, environmental, and economic problems that inspired and further compelled Dominguez to create such a film. Still, the one issue that really “broke the camel’s back,” as it were was the horrific tragedies of September 11, 2001. After watching the World Trade Center Towers burn to the ground and the thousands of people die, Dominguez felt the need to find clarity in a world that seemed to be collapsing around him. Disgusted with the path that humanity was taking he wished to combat it all in a constructive way. This would then lead to the inception of his film “Weaving The Past: Journey of Discovery.”                 “With the events of 9/11, and all of the wars that were to follow, some needed and many not needed, the Iraq War in particular, the suffering of the families of the soldiers that we have lost, the women and men who gave their lives for this country, nothing was making any sense. There was just so much pain,” explains Dominguez. “All I saw was a lot of waste and misuse of valuable resources by our state and country’s officials. The homeless rate has been really rising in the last 20 years or so, there are just so many encampments everywhere. Then you have the government making all of the cuts to our children’s education. It started with music, and now it is seeping into other forms of the arts. There has also been a drifting away from Faith in our society unfortunately. Faith and education are both very important, but schools can’t teach faith.Plus, all of the animal species that are going extinct do to global warming, it was all just depressing me.”                 After Walter turned 50 years old, he began to realize that life wasn’t forever. He also started noticing all of his fellow friends and family members rising in age and they too were becoming ill and were passing away. This startled Walter and made him do some real soul searching. He started thinking about his own life and legacy. He needed to take a stand and do something. Walter needed to make a positive impact on the world while he still had time, and before it was too late.                 “I wanted to prove to myself that in the midst of all of the chaos, that there were still good people out there in the rest of the world. I needed to see if there were people who were still willing to love, help, and reach out to others.”                 God must have heard Walter’s plea, because many in both America and Mexico rose up and offered themselves, and their knowledge to help him on his quest for self-revelation. Walter would go on to explain all of the weird and unexpected blessings and miracles that took place throughout the creation of his documentary. It was as if something greater, a higher power was guiding both his hand and his path to seek out all of the ancient truths that he was trying to unveil.                 “People were just so warm and embracing when they realized what I was trying to accomplish, and respected that I was so sincere about it. You would be surprised at how many people will help you when they see how truly dedicated and sincere you are about accomplishing something. I just wanted to do both Tata and my family proud. I am so happy that things worked out the way that they did. Through many cases of Divine Intervention, I was able to come across the right people, find the right locations, make the right connections, call upon the right contacts, and gather up the right information on leads.  On many occasions both my production crew and I were moved to tears with how much of God’s favor that we were shown in certain kinds of situations.”                 Dominguez was able to accumulate a grand total of over 200 hours of footage from his journeys. After meeting with historians like Dr. Ward Albro in Texas, and then trekking for months at a time through the various cities and diverse rural terrain of Mexico, Walter was able to track down and meet many of Grandpa Tata’s long lost relatives that he feared were either assassinated by Porfirio Diaz, or lost to the sands of time.                 “I found everything that I wanted, more than I could ever imagine,” says Dominguez. “I was just happy to be able to interview the elders in my family, and the elders in Tata’s Church before they passed on and took those stories with them. What was even more remarkable for me was that my crew and I embarked on this venture with no actual preconceived ending, script, or proper outline. Christ just guided us every step of the way. The entire experience just totally rejuvenated my faith in both God, humanity, and in the future.”                 Both Walter and his beloved wife Shelly Dominguez continue to promote the film, with strong faith that it will continue to touch the hearts, souls, and minds of many out there who are also embarking on a journey of their own in means of reconnecting with their faith, family, origins, history, and most importantly, themselves.
