people often claim that I think too much, to which I reply if you thought half as much as I did you might not be stupid. so I say to you dear reader or if I am lucky readers, when it comes to people keep your expectations low and trust no one.

not sure who said this "it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than it is to speak and remove all doubt"

or this"never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you senseless with his experience"

I find it best to speak in generalities. for example: I generally don't jump off cliffs without a parachute. this leaves wiggle room which is very important when dealing with devils or gods.

not sure who said this either "those that fear the darkness have never seen what the light can do"

I have never eaten a live baby.....see that's funny because you have to cook them first lolololol

nothing is worse than being stagnant. embrace chaos like you would anything....in moderation.

 just how weird am I. I had a dream where I went to a park and Charlie sheen was doing stand up for a small group of people sitting on some bleachers. and this is the joke I here him tell. "so you have people that say they are women trapped in a mans body. so what happens when two people that are women trapped in a mans body get together. there not gay if they are women are they lesbiens if they have the wrong piping. I propose we call people in this situation gaybiens." no one is the crowd laughed and he tapped his microphone saying is this thing on

As a mental exercise I am attempting to connect some dots of Drake E. I have read his bio, one blog about his radio show, and seven of his poems. I do not expect to be very accurate, this is merely academic. I was actually intrigued by his blog that I went and read those poems and I noticed that he used two words in several of his poems, given his diverse vocabulary I found it interesting. The first word he used was cerebellum and the second was awakening. Based on the definition of those words and what little I read I am going to attempt to do a basic write up of him. I call him the wandering chameleon. Motion is very important to him and everything he does in more ways than one. The most important would be in his creative side. Like his bio states he can’t stick to one form, which also speaks of his creativity. There is movement in his creativity that always has him trying out new ways to express it. Poetry is not his primary form of creativity. There is a passion that drives him that I have not yet been able to pin point. This is because one I am not good enough to decipher it on such limited information or two he doesn’t know it yet either. The first is improbable because I am like totally super smart and the second is likely because it fits the mold of a wandering soul. He possesses the ability to make slight alterations to himself that allow him to fit in anywhere. He has many acquaintances but few real friends. The few friends he does have would be either from childhood or would be those he that share in his creativity. He shows symptoms of abandonment issues. I would hazard a guess that his mother has either passed or his parents are divorced, or he is a foster child. I am leaning towards the mother side of things. He has at least two older siblings. One brother and one sister and he is the youngest. When it comes to relationships; his insecurities mix with his longing to create a dichotomy that forces him to choose ones that won’t last. The fact that he knows the relationship won’t last allows him the freedom to give of himself fully because he knows it will be over and no real harm can be done. The abandonment made him fully self-reliant.  He worked for everything he has and this has created a certain pride and touch of arrogance in him. I would say that eighty percent of the time he shows a normal range of emotions. The other twenty percent he suffers something akin to depression and isolation comforts him. He does not judge people instead he is content to observe them. There is a small disassociation he feels while observing the world. He can fit in anywhere but he feels he belongs in very few places. This lends to the importance of his passion. Nothing makes him feel more alive than when indulging in his passion. I really could keep going on but the further I get from the original dots the less accurate I get I will be content if I am right twenty percent of this. So just need to wait and see what Drake says and I would like to thank him for his assistance.

    This is a 1st! Damn. I give you high respect for even wanting to do this in the 1st place. So, while you were off about some stuff, you weren't that inaccurate: I have 4 sisters (1 older, 3 younger), both parents are alive (divorced), no childhood friends sadly, I do "know" many, but few I call "friend". I do like to be alone sometimes, preferably while driving. I don't judge, I love to observe and just call out what I see. Relationships I take very seriously. I do adapt quick, but rarely settle unless I really feel at home. My creative side is triggered by poetry & music, but it's rooted through the video games I'm creating (new Indie Game studio I started). I'll stop here for now. :)
