10 Reasons Terrorists are Angry


1. They are forced to live in a cave with a bunch of men for extended periods of time and they are probably sleeping on the ground. That just doesn’t sound like fun to me. Camping to me is staying at the Holiday Inn.

2. They have all these wives that they never see and thus never get the physical benefit from, but we have to assume they have email, telephones, and ways to talk with their relatives daily. So they get to hear all the bitching, complaining, moaning, and groaning and get none of the good things out of marriage like sex. Yea… I’d want to shoot something too.

3. They get called into the commander’s office and sat down to talk about a “really important mission” and they get all excited until they turn to page 73 which reads “and then you explode.” When patted on the back and told “don’t worry you’ll get X many wives after death” they are never given an explanation for why they can’t just get more wives now and not blow up. That is a raw deal.

4. Your weapons have stayed the same since your grandfather was fighting and everyone else gets new toys each year. It is like a country without Christmas.

5. They said grab your stuff we are going on a trip. That was ten years ago.

6. Your team name keeps changing each year. How can you not have a favorite team? I would be pissed off too.

7. Every time you go to the airport the guard just shakes his head, laughs, and tells you to turn around. How rude!

8. You keep getting added to a new list with a new color each year. You are starting to feel like a rainbow and you hate rainbows.

9. All you want is a Number 1 combo from McDonalds.

10. Almost everywhere you fight is a desert and the desert is hot as hell.

On “Not Blogging for an Audience” and The Fear of Failure.

I think we all have a little fear of failure, but we can’t let that stop us chasing our dreams. Nice post and thanks for the pingback and mention! -OM

I have writers block. Not right now per se, but I get it often. I get it because I have a fear of failure. I’m a perfectionist although I’m working on it thank you very much. The fear of failure is something we all experience to a certain degree, in our work, hobbies, everyday life. We always get scared of screwing up at some point; and it’s okay. We need to be reminded we aren’t machines, we aren’t programmed to always succeed and we are not to be replaced when we make a mistake because we haven’t fulfilled our purpose. We are human. We fail. We succeed. We do it all over again. It’s part of the circle of life.

Now there are people who want to/ try to distance themselves from the possibility of failing, which I completely understand. It’s not necessarily the best way to deal with an…

Thank you!


As I come closer to my first blogging goal ever I feel the need to say thank you to everyone that has continued to read my random posts. Your support and continued interest is what makes HarsH ReaLiTy what it is. I have put in countless hours since I created this blog last January and although it hasn’t “paid off” in the ways I may have dreamed… it has provided encouragement in ways I never thought of.

One goal around the corner. The next goal going in the oven. And that is the grind people.

“I don’t blog for an Audience”


I get tired of hearing this sentence from bloggers. If you aren’t interested in gathering a following or having others read your work GOOD FOR YOU! Why is it you feel that it is necessary to parade that ideology on every post you can find that talks about “building a blog or an audience?” How many articles have you read on how to successfully build a blog and how many of those articles have you seen at least one commenter that feels the need to clarify that they “write for themselves?” Good for you… now how about you go write in that corner over there since you are so proud of the fact that you don’t care if anyone else sees your post!

Many of us here on WordPress are writers and we ARE seeking critiques of our work or eyes on our articles. There is nothing wrong with that at all. Don’t get discouraged or put off by people that loudly trumpet in your face that “they aren’t after the numbers or the views.” If you want to focus on that and then in turn feel proud of the fact that you have accomplished a “goal” then do so! Be as proud as you feel like! Simply ignore the “noise” around you that will try and tell you that your outlook is wrong. They are your goals, your outlooks, and it is your blog. Screw everyone else.

-OM

Celebrate your ugly.


Opinionated Man:

I felt this post was very raw and it spoke to me. I think everyone at some point has body image issues and to be able to freely talk about those shows an amount of strength I admire. This was a very interesting post and thanks for letting me share it! -OM

Last night, at the very end of a very long day, I received this message on Facebook:

I don’t know if I’ve already said this, but I wanted to say I’m sorry. You might remember when I saw you for XXX’s birthday party… I felt bad after thinking about how I reacted when I saw you for the first time after so long. I was so excited and floored, but that’s what people expect right? I saw that you posted about struggling with your body image and the things that can come from that. I sadly understand those feelings very well, and I got mad at myself after I thought about how I reacted after seeing you. I felt bad for not being nonchalant.

You’ve always been my bus friend from middle school and that won’t ever change. I just hope that you’re doing okay. I wanted to let you…
