Part Of Why I Just Feel Like Giving Up Quite Often

https://twitter.com/GeraldoRivera/status/426684163291226112I didn't necessarily know how to start answering the question of why I just feel like giving up quite often. Then I found a Sodahead poll that gave me a start. As I answered, life is getting worse in general. "It's a paradox. On one hand, we'll always have poor people (cf. Matthew 26:11, Mark 14:7, John 12:8). On the other, much is required from whom has much (cf. Luke 12:48). Now, nobody was poor among the Church in its early days (cf. Acts 4:32-5:11), but we're in the End Days and life is getting worse and worse (cf. Daniel 12:1, e.g.)."

Since (as the old saying goes) it's all going to Hell (quite literally, and at least for a little while, anyway—for "Heaven and earth will pass away," as Matthew 24:35a states) and there will be a new Heaven and new Earth (cf. Revelation 21:1, e.g—meaning that this age will pass away, and a new age that'll last for 1,000 years and eternity will come), just to throw in the towel (so to speak) is quite tempting. Besides, I just found out that my major may indefinitely leave me in unemployment limbo—and I obviously still don't have a job, or else I wouldn't be in unemployment limbo (well, really, non-employment limbo—since I've never been employed, so I can't have ever been unemployed). Also, as my Political Science 301 class's textbook reads, Political Science is a major for those who want to study (e.g., research in) the science of politics, not actually practice politics—and I may have majored in History or Journalism had I known that, and even Mom says that I should have majored in Computer Science or Information Systems instead of Political Science—and here, I thought that I had a major that would help me get into the news business or politics! 

Furthermore, my attempt at getting even an interview miserably has failed so far—and both times!—and on the day that I was going to improve my interview video (long story short), I was unable to make the video due to audio and other problems (e.g., a fight with my sister that did not end well—and to end that fight took a lot of time and energy). Also, being on LinkedIn has not helped.

Apparently, doing a YouTube video and utilizing social media to even seek an interview in this day and age has ironically (and/or paradoxically) backfired—here, as a friend noted, I was trying to be innovative and, in my innovation, miserably failed. In addition, Mom said that I should do it the traditional way and send out resumes, cover letters, etc..

Well, excuse me, Mom—if I could drive around to employment places and send out resumes, etc., I would. Then again, I really have no resume on which to go. In addition, being (or at least trying to be) humble and honest (as is my Christian duty) leaves me all the more in non-employment limbo. One of the criticisms that I got was that I was too personal in my interview video. Well, excuse me—what would have happened if I didn't disclose that, for instance, I have Cerebral Palsy, OCD/Anxiety, Depression, and ADD until an interview? Either way, I'm screwed: damned if I do, and damned if I don't!

Furthermore (again with Mom not knowing what the heck she's saying), disabled people are still looked at as liabilities and scapegoats (and again, what would have happened if I didn't disclose that, for instance, I have Cerebral Palsy, OCD/Anxiety, Depression, and ADD until an interview?). After all, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (who was not born disabled) was scapegoated by both Texas State Senator Wendy Russell Davis and her supporters, and (allegedly—as I read on Twitter, since I slept in late and missed "Geraldo" on WABC this morning) Geraldo Rivera—and I'd like to believe my sister that Geraldo meant "handi-CAPABLE", but (if he really said what @seaheather alleges that he said) I don't think that he meant "handi-capable". Even Geraldo Rivera apparently (and disappointingly so) goes to prove my point!

Meanwhile, I gotta go....while I'm typing this, my mom and sister are trying to justify not owing me an apology for not knowing what they're talking about when it comes to being disabled in society!

Okay; Here's the Deal Regarding the Once-In-a-Lifetime, Unexpected Opportunity

As far as the opportunity, who would be willing to travel to New York with me to a Superbowl party? Long story short, I won two tickets from WABC Radio to their Big Game Party on the 19th—and it was seriously an unexpected opportunity. I actually thought that I would not win, but I did. 

Nonetheless, I don't know with whom or how I would get to New York. I invited Mom to go with me and/or count it as my graduation gift, but she said that I'd have to find someone else to take if I was going to do. Also, I have no money for a flight—unless I win $1,000 or something (e.g., some kind of miracle happens). If anyone would be willing to take me up on the opportunity, please send me a private message (on Facebook or Twitter) or e-mail me, and I will send you the information.


PS Here's a conversation that I had with a friend about the matter—which shows you how badly I want to go. Originally, I had kept this specific news among only Facebook friends; so, that's why his or her name is not public, etc..

Also, I don't drive; so, I'd have to take the bus and subways.

    Every Time That Tiki Barber Is On Geraldo Rivera's Radio Show Or Podcast...

    I skip the segment. I will not listen to a man who cheated on his college sweetheart is was also his then-8-months-pregnant wife and 11-year bride. I will not listen to a man who badmouthed Tom Coughlin. I urge everyone who's reading this to tweet, blog, and do whatever else to tell Geraldo Rivera, KABC and WABC, and whoever else to boycott Tiki Barber unless and until he repents of his brazen adultery and leaving of four young children (including the two girls who were eventually born and rightly kept from having to see him in the hospital).

    Will Geraldo Rivera Ever Convert To Mormonism? Maybe...

    Skip to 34:10. Also read Geraldo's recent article on Mitt Romney. For example, Geraldo outright states, "Like many things 19th Century Mormon, the story is funky. So let me qualify it by saying I have never met a 21st Century Mormon I didn’t like. Further, my impression is that those who practice the religion these days are members of the most impressive religious sect in the country. The hilarious Broadway smash ‘Book of Mormon’ aside, (and whatever credo floats your personal theological boat,) seldom has the world seen a group that so effectively teaches adherents to be the best they can be by doing the best they can for others, as well as themselves."


    Let me repeat with emphasis: "Like many things 19th Century Mormon, the story is funky. So let me qualify it by saying I have never met a 21st Century Mormon I didn’t like. Further, my impression is that those who practice the religion these days are members of the most impressive religious sect in the country. The hilarious Broadway smash ‘Book of Mormon’ aside, (and whatever credo floats your personal theological boat,) seldom has the world seen a group that so effectively teaches adherents to be the best they can be by doing the best they can for others, as well as themselves."


    Will Geraldo become the Matrilineally-Jewish Puertorriqueno equivalent of Representative Jason Chaffetz? By the way, both have one parent who was in a cult-- although to be fair, Cruz "Allen" Rivera was (as far as I know) was an Evangelical Catholic, thus not a part of traditional (occultic) Roman Catholicism.

    Still Not Looking Good For Geraldo; And Meanwhile...

    Statistics is not just for me.  As I once said, "If I wanted to be a mathematician or pollster, I would've majored in Math or Math with a Concentration in Statistics and Political Science." As you can see from my YouTube videos and tweets last night, I'm not a mathematician or statician. Anyway, more bad news for "Geraldo":

    I really miss the Joe Crummey show...Joe was very entertaining and informative. Geraldo is OK but I just can't listen for 2 hours... or 2 minutes...sorry. Anyone know if, or where Joe is on the air?

    I used to listen when Geraldo subbed for Joy Behar about 15 years ago. He was ten times better than her but he was a little boring. Now listening to him for about one hour I am ready to go to sleep. He is to slow for talk radio. I also can never figure out his views. Just when I think hes Left he goes right. Maybe this is good if it is true non-bias...Who knows. 
    I give it 6 months!

    I listened to Geraldo today. He sucked. His whiney voice drives me crazy. 
    McGurk was great, Simone is great, even the Curtis and Kuby show was great. But, of course, this is all about syndication bucks. 
    Screw the listeners, right?

    Even from Facebook:



    From the WABC Comment Page... More Criticism of Geraldo...

    Why was nobody criticizing Erica for trying to use and peddle her influence to get Obama endorsed, meanwhile?
