Flaunt

The way she flaunts, her body at me.

Knowing what I want and making me weak.

Moving her body in a taunt, swaying her cheeks.

She will leave you stunned with her physique.

Movements so fluid they haunt, I want to shriek.

She is on the hunt and ready, her bodies in heat..

Her curves take me on a jaunt, as I reach my peak.

She has so much fun with new techniques.

The way that she grunts, and grips the sheets.

It’s will leave you sprung, a feeling so unique!

Friendship Bestowed

You all came in when I need you most.

And kept me from losing all hope.

A lucky encounter; or insane plan?

That brought together four crazy friends.

All with problems no one understands.

When we get together we take command.

We help each other through thick and thin.

No matter where we go or where we’ve been.

We’re no friends for rent, or a passing trend.

Cause this crew doesn’t play pretend!

A bunch of losers in a club!

But we ain’t no scrubs.

Say what you want but we’re still on top.

Cause every bodies knows we’re non-stop!

Loyal Friends

Customer Loyalty Delusion

It is a well received notion in the business industry that aggressive marketing and advertising is number one when it comes to growth and revenue. New consumers are the life blood of a business, but at the same times innovation and costumer loyalty are just as important. Showing old customers that your business can adapt to meet there needs is the best way to bringing them back.

Business 101, Advertise, advertise, advertise! Most stores and businesses want to gain new and old customers alike, going as far as spending tons of money on ads. The problem with that is that in the process of gaining new costumers and reacquiring old ones, companies loose sight of the Loyal Customer.

Loyal Customers (LC) are the ones who never waver, they are committed and understanding. LC’s are the ones who will also attract more costumers, just because they love your company.

Value-Of-Customer-Loyalty

So lets be honest. Do companies really care about their LC’s or do they only care about their new customers?

  • First, Companies focus on ads aimed at new customers.
  • Second, They spend a lot of money on those ads.
  • Third, all the “sales” they have are not for the LC’s, they are a vague gimmick used by companies to allow their LC’s to help recruit potential customers.

It’s a sick system when new customers get a great discount or a lower monthly payment and yet the LC gets nothing. Why? Because they aren’t going anywhere? If the only time companies worry about there costumers is when they want new ones or they are about to loose old ones. Is that really best practice?

Friendship Delusion

Now if we juxtapose our lives with a business model, will we find that we treat our Loyal Friends better than companies treat their LC’s? I’m not saying that we spend multiple k’s a year trying to aggressively target new friends through ads. (Although I guess you could, and I’m sure people due on craigslist, or is that prosti… Never mind back to the topic). By all means I am also not saying you shouldn’t invest time in trying to mend friendships that have gone astray either.

The difference between life and business is that one has you spending money to better it and the other has you spending Time. How much time are you willing to spend on mending a friendship or finding a new one? How much time do we actually spend making our loyal friends feel important?

New friends and old friends are important, but don’t alienate your loyal friends. Loyal friends that took you lots of time to develop, to bond with, and to become close. These are the friends that deserve a little more time and effort. We can’t treat loyal friends like a pair of shoes, we can’t just pick and choose which friend we hang out with like they are interchangeable.

friends

Show them how much they mean to you, spend a little more Time and Effort with them. Loyal friends are the ones that will guide you through the rest of your life, through thick and thin. So don’t treat them like some kind of friend for rent.

In Closing

What did we learn? Loyalty is worth so much more than we value it. The time we invest in it is just as valuable. Even if those Loyal Friends are a bunch of losers you randomly went with to see a movie. Now they are your Losers and they should be treated as such.

I thank you for your time My Committed Reader.

I look forward to the next time we get to do this again.

What the Fret!

Change can happen in the blink of an eye. Sometimes it’s do to a decision we make to change our situation, but more often than not it’s do to Life. No matter how the change comes, soon enough it will happen, and it’s our choice on how we face it.

We could sit and fret over it, asking why, damning everything, and considering what we could have done to stop it. I know this is a topic that a lot of people express the same feeling about, “suck it up”, “you have to stay strong”, etc. Yea it’s easy for people to say that, it is from my own personal experience that I can say, that most people have no idea how to handle a situation that you are going through. They us clichés and phrases straight from Lifetime movie.

Even if the people that offer these sympathies have been through what you have been through, that does not mean it was the same. Maybe both of you have lost a loved one, but they lost a cousin and you lost a spouse and now have to figure out how handle everything and take care of your kids too. Ever grief is different, every change is different, every ones reaction and solution is different.

I’m not saying don’t get upset but we must use that energy, that anger, the sadness, and use it to propel us into the next stage of life. Sometimes change happens because it needs to, just cause you didn’t make the choice to make the change doesn’t mean it’s not for the better. Like they say “no use crying over spilled milk”. The thing that we must remember about life is it has it’s ups and downs, good times and bad times, but we must remember one thing. No matter how bad the situation you’re going through is “this too shall pass”, but also remember that this holds true even for the good times.

We all need our time to fret about the situation, but we must not let it consume us. We have to move on. Our lives are like a song and when something doesn’t sound right you must alter the music, or change the fret. I know that the stress of change can fret away at your patience and at times wear down your will and determination. But we must go forward with change cause sometimes change can happen for a reason and it is up to us to find the silver lining.

Just remember to push through the bad times and enjoy the good, cause everything is fleeting and nothing lasts. So live to the best of your power and never give up just cause the road has gotten a little tough.

Thank you for reading my Committed Reader

A Song of Life

She walked in and everyone saw her, except me I didn’t see her, I sensed her. I sensed her in the increased blood flow throughout my body. I sensed her when my heart rate quickened and I was in cadence with her. I Sensed her in my shallow breathing, in sync with her steps. We were in rhythm but I doubt she would ever know.

A girl like that would never notice me. Why would she? I was a nobody. A nobody that seemed to syncopate every time she came near. I could feel her presence, and if that was the effect she had on me just by coming close, I could imagine what would happen if she ever touched me. I would daydream about what would happen if she ever came in contact with me. It would be a symphonic event that would start with a crescendo and would be filled with accents and trills that would send us over the top. An unstoppable force of rhythmic passion filled with affrettando and devoto. It would be our greatest compositions!

If that was just a touch, imagine what holding her would entail or even still, what would happen if we ever kiss! A daydream that would overcome me for months!

I would dream of creating music with her for the rest of my life! It would be an awesome song of life!

Depleted Moments

Battery Low

We have become a society that is crazily dependent on our cell phones for everything. They have become a crutch and have forced us to miss so many moments in life that once you step back and think about it it’s actually astonishing. I don’t know how many times a week I have to hear a complaint from some one (myself included) that goes along the lines of “Oh my phone is almost dead”. This one phrase is never a thing mumbled in a moment of silence or in between conversation. No it has been my experiences that people can’t help but feel obligated to interrupt whatever is going on to let people know that their phones battery has depleted. When this occurs it usually cause a change in conversation, it’s the equivalent of a wild card in Uno.

Why can’t we wait to say this? It’s bad enough that I find it tough to talk to someone that is constantly on their phone, yet this one thing bothers me the most. I would do my best to help you recharge your phone as long as you telling me doesn’t come at the expense of our conversation.

Depleted Moments

Also I feel like we need to learn to do without our phones around our friends. Why can’t we put our phones down to enjoy the time we have with our friends? Now that I am considered an adult and I have to plan out my time with my friends, I can’t understand why we would give up moments just to check our phone. It depletes the moments you have with your friends, I get if you need to answer a call or check a message really quick but there is no good excuse for being on your phone the majority of the time your with your friends.

This is something I really need to work on and something I hope those around me will too. We should learn to enjoy each other and the time we have together. Cell phones should come second. The next time I hang out with my friends I will spend time enjoying it and leave my phone in my pocket.
