Today's date is 10/28/15, but I'm leaving this at it's original date. I've decided to no longer write with them. I need to venture out on my own now.
Blogophilia week 49.7 topic: "Dazed and Confused"
(Hard, 2 pts) Incorporate an a quote from Aristotle
(Easy, 1 pt) Include a college sporting event
While I was looking up Aristotle quotes, I stumbled upon a blunder....How do I know this? Because I like to do my research before going any further. I don't need someone to point out to me how stupid I am or how I am wrong. I can be stupid all by my lonesome, thank you very much! ^_^

I was thinking...This is so very perfect, because I know people who can't take criticism. And I was going to go on and on about how I welcome constructive criticism. I think as a writer, it helps me to become a better person writing wise. This is why I like writing prose, poetry and creating art...There really isn't a wrong way to create that. But writing essays or novels are completely different.
Even thinking outside the box is shamed upon.
Er! Right!!! I got off topic....So the picture quote I found...I did some research on it and got a little dazed...and confused. This turned out to not have been a quote from Aristotle, but a quote from an American writer by the name of Elbert Hubbard....
So then, I created this pic and quote:
OK, so it isn't Aristotle, but I really like this quote. I was so disappointed, like getting tickets to a hockey game, only to find out when you arrive it's been cancelled and they're going to play college football instead.
Alright!!! Alright!!! I went and found a great Aristotle quote...And yes...I did fact check, and it is indeed one of his quotes. Several sites backed it up. But I'll only citate one site. I x'd out of all my tabs and am too lazy to go back to look.

Anyway...I wonder what he could have meant by: Hope is a waking dream. According to Yahoo Answers, there are two different contradictions as to the meaning. But whatever he meant by it, I hope he meant good things.
For me, I hope he meant that you can have hopes not only in dreams, but while awake as well.
I have dreams...I dream big time. I wish to one day be able to buy the house my grandma sold on Long Island. As a child, I moved around a lot, and my grandma's house was the only thing that was constant. I loved the little town she lived in. I loved walking around that town, and I loved going to the library there. I swear I could hide out there for hours. And even though my grandma sold it nine years ago, I still have an inkling of hope that one day I can go back.
Who knows? Maybe the previous owners will be hoarders and if I'm lucky, I might find my teddy bear collection after all. *sigh* It sure is a pipe dream, but it's my pipe dream. In reality, I know my grandma's obnoxious boyfriend at the time, flooded the basement, causing everything to ruin.
Alright, so I didn't have any Paddington bears, but I just had some that stuck by me during my childhood. Though I do have a few Pooh Bears only because they were my son's but now that he's 18 he's "outgrown" them. I still have my Care Bear from childhood. I have no idea how I still have that one but not the rest.
Well, dreaming is fun, but I have to go...
Oh, and here's the original pic I created...
