This whole Covid-19 crisis showed a lot of folks’ true colors. I talked about getting rid of lousy friends many times. But let me get into something completely different…
I’m human. I’m scared of a few things.
One day, a girl from work and I went on a hike and we encountered a rattlesnake, all rolled up. I said “look Lucy (not her real name)! A rattlesnake!”
She warned “don’t get too close Roman.”
Instead, I showed her that I could walk right up to it until you see it get uncomfortable. Then you stop. And walk away.
The rattlesnake knows you can kill it. It’s not stupid. So he’ll attack to defend himself.
I’m not scared of rattlesnakes because I know how they think.
On the other hand, I’m scared of water moccasins because I also know how they think. They’re stupid. They don’t give a fuck. They’ll attack you.
I got attacked by a water moccasin once and had to run away from it. Luckily, I run about 20 miles per hour. Snakes don’t run anywhere near that fast.
Getting back to the Covid-19 crisis, I already explained how those in power don’t give a damn about you. If they really cared, they’d be telling you to lose weight and get sunlight. Rather, they tell you to wear a mask, stay indoors, and don’t hug your loved ones.
That’s not about your health, my friends. That’s about submission. If you still haven’t figured that out, well, I don’t know what else to tell you.
I ain’t scared of Covid-19. I just saw another study that says that the men who die tend to have low testosterone levels.
So we have overweight, gets no sunlight, and low T levels.
Heh. Definitely not worried about Covid-19.
My biggest fear
My biggest fear is simple. It’s not living up to my potential.
I’ve discussed my lifelong goals. I’ve also discussed how losers can only think short term. Winners can think in terms of decades.
Before I die, I’ll compose something on Anton Bruckner’s level. I have no delusions of grandeur. I’m not a supergenius. I’m just a guy with an insane work ethic. I’ll never be able to compose on Beethoven’s level. That’s why I choose Bruckner because it’s a realistic goal.
I’ll also sell at least one million dollar painting in my lifetime. No, not after I’m dead. In my lifetime. Very important distinction.
That means I need to have excellent health. That also means focus, determination, persistence, and busting ass.
Now if your biggest fear in June 2021 is still dying of Covid-19, you have a pretty fucking boring brain and we won’t be friends.
