Thought of life….

I had just this picture saved as a draft. It was a very curious picture that brought me a numerous amount of thoughts. As I was in my Earth Science class we reached the chapter on  Astronomy.  My professor told us something very humbling fact that hit home. The universe is so vast. We really cant phatom how vast it truley is. The nearest star system to our planet in the Milky Way is  4.234 light years way. Meaning that It would take light 4.234 years to travel from Earth to Proxima Centauri(Star System). If we were to travel 37,000 miles per hr it would take 80,000 years to reach.

He later on went on to describe A galaxy and what is made up of.

Ingredients:

1: Super massive Black hole
2:100’s of 1000’s of billions of star systems
3:1000’s of billions ^10power of stars
4: to each star there’s a hand full or so of planets

Let me give you a compares as to the gravity of how many star systems there are in one galaxy…
One star system in a galaxy
is to
One grain of sand on a beach.
Mind blowing… but it gets even better…

THERE’S ONLY ONE YOU IN ALL OF THE UNIVERSE

Football Season is here!

For those Americans that enjoy the past time of football, Sept is a crucial time. Turning on the 60inch high def surround sound streaming live testosterone, passion, down right aggressiveness, and drop dead gorgeous women cheering them on gets the blood flowing. Hearing the NFL anthem fill the room is an honor and a privilege. The aroma of fat and collateral consumes the the oxygen in the room. The Combination of chicken wings, 7 layer dip. hot dogs, burgers and steak on the grill, corn on the cob drenched in butter and salt, mac and cheese with tiny bits of bacon make you salivate at the sight. Your lips cant wait to be touched by ice cold beer chillin in the tap.

And of course football isn’t the same unless your in a league. Fantasy football makes football that more interesting.
i previously wrote a post on proposals and weddings. Many women at a young age have their weddings all planned out. From the flowers to the dress. well i don’t know about all guys but for the me I’ve planned out my man cave from what beer I will have on tap all the way to the layout of the room.

They do have a show on DIY Network that I find very cool. Check it out DIY. If you do have a man cave or want one I’d love to hear about.

If you do see this post_________. That last picture is for you. Except it should say “Always root against Miami”

A Simple Apology… And Then Some…

Once again, I’m writing a post to apologize for my lack of attention to this blog which many of you have taken the time to read and follow.

Very soon, there will be several changes in the dynamic of Simplicity∞Beyond.

Let me begin by congratulating Javny715, our secret helper, for becoming an aunt this summer!

Secondly, I shall continue my congratulations with MrCooki. It’s his birthday today! Thank you MrCooki for staying true to Simplicity∞Beyond. Best wishes to you and unlimited health and prosperity. My buddy is growing up so fast. :’-)

Lastly, yours truly, will be departing this September to begin a new stage of his life. I enlisted into the United States Air Force this past January and basic military training awaits. I will be absent for a period of nearly two to three months. I don’t know exactly when I’ll be able to post again, but wait patiently for a simple description of my experience during basic training.

Wrapping things up, MrCooki and Javny715 will take care of the blog (as they have been doing this entire time) during my justified absence. Again, thank you so much for supporting Simplicity∞Beyond. We truly appreciate each and every one of you.

P. S. If anyone has any doubts or concerns about the enlistment process for the USAF, leave a comment below or on our Facebook page. I’ll be happy to answer any of your questions to the best of my knowledge.

Say I do…

I stumbled upon this amazing video that somewhat got me choked up. Although it is easy to get me choked up. I got choked up from watching Beauty and the Beast. This video got me thinking about marriage. Many of my friends are getting married and trying to start a family so I began thinking of how I would propose if I had a wife.

The video proposal starts approximately at 1:26.

Many guys and girls have done some daring and amazing proposal. After watching a few more videos, I was rather paralyzed or un-gifted to come up with a proposal that can top that. Then I came to the realization that its not about how extravagant you propose but rather how genuine your proposal is. I feel that it must describe your personality as well as your partners’. Similar to your vows if you choose to personally write them.

Sometimes its not about the most elaborate or most extravagant proposal. Sometimes its about the simplest things. Let me me paint you a little picture.

Sunday morning, rain is falling. Just a nice sun shower. The sun is barely seeping through the cracks of the window blinds. The sun shine gracefully glides on to your face waking you up, but your not alone. You wake up next to your partner. They’re staring deeply into your eyes. They aren’t just looking at you. They’re looking at the past, present and future of the relationship you share together. All the good and bad memories flow through the passion in your eyes. They are staring into your soul. They smile and kiss you good morning. They’re nervous ,but calm; because they know they’re going to spend the rest of their life with you. Their mouth opens and the prefect proposal graces your heart like a beautiful symphony.

…Part II

This is part 2 of “…”

According to Webster Dictionary Blog: Pronunciation: \ˈblȯg, ˈbläg\Function: noun Etymology: short for Weblog Date: 1999: a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer.

As some of you may know Simplicity∞Beyond is not know for being a journal, but more of random segments of simple feeds of information/articles. Sometimes change is good. Adding that journal aspect gives us that sense of being human or having a soul. I left part one with this thought: “it’s not you it’s me” that’s what she said. So, a week or so has passed from the official ending of that escapade and I didn’t think it was going to be this hard to just go with the flow and move on. I recently stumbled across the artist G-Eazy and his albums. I don’t normally listen to a lot of rap but there is one track on his album “Must Be Nice” that stuck out to me more than the others. It’s called “Marilyn”.

“I want to love you
But if it’s not right what can I do?
Everything will be alright
So baby get some sleep tonight.”

There is a gentlemen I met by the name of Sheim Francis at Edens Coffee House. He has done a few open mic performances there. His performance dazzled and inspired the crowd. After hearing who he was and his ability to paint a story solely on the words he spoken; it has inspired me to give it a try. He wrote a book called My Journey, Poetic. This is my attempt on being a poet, so be gentle.

The words that you once displayed
Through actions of compassion
Will never be forgotten
And The love I once had
Will never be depleted
Cause the way you looked at me like I was the only one
Lit up my world like a new found sun.

We use to talk all day,
Couldn’t fall asleep but couldn’t stay awake.
And every moment that I got,
Including my 930 to 11 O’clock was spent by your side.
We would lay around lazily, always having fun.
We were each other’s number one.
But I look at us now and see
We’ve fallen through the drain pipes.

Months went by filled with pure happiness and bliss
Time seemed to slow down
through every waking moment spent with you
and come to a standstill with every tender kiss
But in reality time died
I give it my condolences

Now we’re here distant and alone.
Without your warm embrace I’m in a snow storm
You meant the world to me
and I to you
I thought we both didn’t want us to end
But all I can do now
Is leave it in God’s hands.

“I want to love you
But if it’s not right what can I do?
Everything will be alright
So baby get some sleep tonight”

I want it,
you want it
so who are we fooling here.

“That’s why you and I ended over U N I
And I said that’s fine, but you’re the only one that knows I lied
You and I ended over U N I
And I said that’s fine, but you’re the only one that knows I lied”

We made each other happy
But now what can I do
Watch you in the arms of some other dude
He can’t make you as happy
And he can’t make you as free

I hope one day you see
These three months
Were just the beginning of you and me.

Growing up I wasn’t really good at sports. I kind of grew into sports. In elementary schools there is an event called field day. Field Day is a ritual for elementary students across the nation. Its almost similar to the Olympics. Medals are given to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and everyone who participates. Every student is given this advice before every field day: “It’s not about first or last it’s about having fun.”-Teachers. And as we grow up, this pure phrase of inspiration tends to get scued away from its truth. Especially with love…

Love is a game we all play. Unfortunately we don’t get any medals for playing this game. This game has simple rules. Find the person you like.  Make a connection with them. Ask them out on a date. And a few more. Take it to the next level. Fall in lust. Fall in love. SIMPLE. Yet It never is; especially for me. I just don’t know how to pick them.

There is a phrase I’ve heard many times: Nice guys finish last. Im starting to believe this is true.

“Outsider. Insider. It doesn’t really matter. All that matters is knowing what you really want and going after it.”-Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift “If your ever with a girl that is too good for you, marry her”- Valentines Day

The first part about this blog I wrote on Aug 9th 2012, and now, March 5th 2013, I’m finishing it. A few months have past and I saw a girl that I had class with two semesters ago. We had a weird connection. I thought she was absolutely beautiful. She loves the  Miami Hurricanes (college football)  and I love Florida State University (rival to the Hurricanes).  She ended up buying an iPhone from me at my place of work and the rest is history. For once I truly felt happy. She made me feel like I mattered. She was the first girl I said and meant “I love you” to. The problem is, things didnt go according to plan. She said the phrase that every guy dreads, ” its not you its me”….

There will be another part to this post so stay tuned.
