Tiqua and Memories Remembered

Purchase here: Tiqua

Tiqua walked towards him in anticipation. "You look like every boy's fantasy, right now," he told her. She said, "I know."
Tiqua was curious about the laws of nature, and how those boys' brains worked. So, she tried out a stereotype to see what would happen. She was quite amused at the results.

This, in all honesty, is a true story. Do you ever suddenly remember something that you haven't thought about in a very long time, and stop and wonder about that moment for a bit? I do this from time to time. There are little secrets and stories that are things you just don't tell. So, today, I am baring all and being honest and transparent. This is a story that was never told.  

Perhaps there are little small moments in life that you have found yourself lingering at. Might they fit well in a book? Maybe one day, I can put one together that fits all of these little tidbits in a page that might last forever.

Be Proud Of Your Intelligence!

If you have an education and know a bit more than the average man on the street, be proud of your knowledge. Take up some courage. Take pride in the fact that you know how to speak or write properly.

Granted, there is that person that knows what they are saying, but chooses to speak or write in the vernacular. But, should you feel bad for the insult that others may imply that you’re giving because you used a word that they don’t know? No! You should not! I think there is a boldness lacking in this society, where the street smart person has the upper hand because they are more intimidating. Yet, you should not allow this type of person to dictate what you do or how you think. You should stand firm on your ground and know that you have the intellectual property to speak your mind. 

There are also many people that have a political tendency, where they can speak well, but their presence of mind is greatly lacking. Sadly, this has become rampant, because of a bandwagon mentality. Someone says something that sounds deep, and suddenly a multitude is on board. Why is this? Can the general people not think for themselves? So many people tend to take up an idea, without thinking about it, and suddenly believe it, and fall for every aspect of the concept. 

Should you take what you read for granted, and not search for the other side of the story? No! You should not! I wish that more people would take in what they read and think about every side of the concept. Because, it may sound nice, but does it make sense? Ask this question with everything you read! Please do this!

“It’s bad when one thing becomes two. One should not look for anything else in the way of the samurai.  It’s the same for anything else that is called a way. If one understands things in this manner, he should be able to hear about all ways, and be more in accord with his own.”
