Who's is ready for winter? With the inevitable snow fast approaching we hung xmas lights and started to put the flower bed to sleep for the winter.
I don't hang Christmas lights on a snowy roof. #dontmakefunofme
Encounter with Doctor F. Gottlieb at the desert in #Utah was one of my major gain from this trip. He shared with us his experience in Papua New Guinea and the teaching days at the local hospital at Bhutan. His views awed me and I do really respect this man, because of all he has experienced and contributed to this world, he still seeks the truth in things, seeing them for himself and keep exploring, because the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Unlike those arrogant chauvinistic (new word taught to me by Tina) people, who only have eyes on what’s being told to them as a one-sided story, whose blindness is in their mind, not the eyes. One thing I strongly agree with him is that the real way to help people is not to simply give them what they want, so they could live off it for a day or two, but to show them how to do it for themselves to live a life. Just like monetary donations, how easy is it to just give a dollar or two to people who are less privileged than you are, but if they ask you for your time (and this is not only a few hours of volunteer work), will you be such a “giving” person as you claimed?
One of his thought-provoking talks:

My #DailyReminder to you all that #NoMatterHowHard you #Work or how much #Effort you put into real #Results someone is going to come along & #SweepItAllAway by making something really #Awesome & totally #Untrue and your #Realness will be #Replaced by the #Faux if not outright #Outclassed and your #Truth will be replaced by a #Lie so #Shoutout to all the ones who are #RealOnes#AllTheTime because #ItDoesntPayToBe#ButIfYou#KeepItRealWithMe#IWillRewardIt#BecauseIBelieveItShouldPay#IveBeenOnBothSidesOfItBefore so I #Value#Authenticity completely… also, my science teacher isn’t entirely to blame for eating that up, because she lived in #Utah & was a #Mormon so if you’re part of a #Cult I can convince you of anything lol 😂 There was a time when I considered making one myself, when I felt less morally responsible than I do now, and I certainly have used all those abilities before, though usually for petty reasons, like “I don’t want to do homework”, or “He put his shit in my favorite locker”, or when I made everyone in my 2nd Grade class think Dominic was a lazy, lying thief who was trying to take my stuff to play with while we were supposed to be working in class lololol rofl ask me for my “Dominic Story” in full some time so you can understand just how fucked up I used to be lol Oh, it’s still funny though… #RealTalk Post Sorry to my more light-hearted followers for the #DarkComedy but that’s the kind I do ;P And no, I’m not just a manipulative asshole; sometimes I’m a manipulative hero, and I used those same abilities to save myself & others from bad shit happening to them, like when they were going to make that poor girl who sat next to me in senior year math stay behind another year because she copied some answers off my test & they didn’t believe she could’ve done so well on her own, so I went into the Principal’s office & told them I copied all my answers off her test so she could get another chance at it instead of expulsion or being held back. So… More than one side to my coin. Remember the other, when I show you one of those sides. ;)
Last week I had the pleasure to finally check this little hike off the list. With the busy season here coming to an end I'm excited to now be looking ahead for all the winter trips I have planned. #kanarravillefalls#utah
