It's Time To Cut The Bullshit

Modern life is fucked ya know.

Welcome to my blog. Sit down (tho you prolly are already), put your feet up, light up a smoke or a joint if that's your thing, crack open a coldie and relax. It's time to cut the bullshit. There's too much of it out there now, to me it seems that society has become nothing but bullshit. Bullshit runs our way of life and we fuckin let it. Our politicians are full of bullshit, the media promotes bullshit, companies sell us bullshit and celebrities are nothing but bullshit. And the sad thing is, too many people accept all this bullshit as reality and live bullshit lives. The worst thing is, kids are learning it, accepting it and not knowing any better. There goes the future.

Ok, by now you prolly think I'm cynical and I most likely am. Fact is, I've only come to this realisation recently and was disgusted to see how sucked-in I had become. I was disgusted with myself, who I was, how I was, what I was and so decided it was time to change. How you ask? Good question my friend! At this stage, I'm only beginning phase one - appropriately titled "Cut the Bullshit" - and I'm making it up as I go along.

Let me define bullshit, because in order to cut it, it needs to be identified. For me, bullshit consists of the following:

  • lies
  • deceit
  • falseness
  • manipulation
  • artificiality
  • self-delusion
  • hype

I see all this bullshit everyday, and not only externally. I figure I can't expect the world to change without changing myself. Does that sound self-conceited? I don't mean if I change, the world will change - that's bullshit! What I mean is that I don't have the right to bag out the bullshit in this world when I am a proponent of it. So I have to change. If by my changing I can influence others to change, then yay for me.

So, this blog is for me to record my journey, track my progress and voice my opinion. Feel free to tag along, offer advice or join in. But please note, in light of the overall goal of my self-journey (God that sounds like wank!), I may say some things which offend people - just a warning.
