What Does Shawn William Byrd Have in Store for 2014?

We don’t really know what the end of 2013 will bring for Shawn William Byrd, but we do know that the year will end somewhere in the evening of December 31, 2013. Seems to happen around the same time every year. Haha.

Was it a difficult year? That depends upon your perspective. Once you get a few years under your belt (meaning you are getting older), there are always tough decisions to make, losses to bear, and gains that are wonderful!

Do I really need to get to 500 words for this? No, because this is my post, not some SEO crunch or paid piece. Although, feel free to donate PayPal to me! The new year will, hopefully, be filled with happiness and joy, richness and fullness, healthfulness and loch ness.

See you in the future!

When Will 1984 Get Here, Asks Shawn William Byrd…Fiction

What happens when a society gets so corrupted by power and control, that not even Shawn William Byrd can manage to wrap his head around it? I suppose it will be a bit like George Orwell’s 1984.

One thing that I find interesting, is when reference to 1984 is meant to be exactly like the book. A true antagonist would tell you that only the core concepts need be followed. Change in attitudes towards other countries and belief systems, crowd and population control, surveillance of the populace, and the criminalization of and desensitization to most things. This “creeping” effect is what is dangerous and can get someone to their ultimate goal of total power.

It’s a shame, says Shawn Byrd, that this is happening. Ask those from other countries that had to fight for their freedom, they will tell you how precious and important it is. Most citizens here don’t know jack, and they are perfectly content to keep their head in the sand. Vernacular, love it!

This is not a rant or crazy idea post, but a heads-up on how ignorant of the past are too many people.

Look at history, look at the greed of others, look at how irrational behavior gets in levels of power that can control your every move. Think.

Facebook and Youtube are phenomenal pieces of work. Shawn Byrd likes to use them for both surfing and information gathering purposes. If they are to be used to the benefit of the casual surfer, then using the search bar and clicking on similar links is all that is needed.

You can also add buttons and metrics across websites to track and customize your client experience.

Helpful hints can be in video format, and Facebook is a ready-to-go forum for discussion.

Use it!

I Have Many Interests, But What Should Shawn Byrd Do?

Have you found yourself wondering what happens when you have a multitude of interests, yet try to define or describe yourself in a paragraph or two? When Shawn William Byrd had that issue, he decided on a solution that is tailored to him. There is the “About Me” page, which is one version. That was programmed accordingly; included is also a picture. Here is another “Author” page included in this blog. This one is set in the wordpress blog when making the account.

Strange how the same blog can give two slightly different stories about the same person. But what if I also have a Twitter account, another social network such as MySpace, or any number of resume or job-related sites? I found that your target demographic is the only one that matters. Job hunting? Use LinkedIn or another resume (About.me or Google+, for instance) to post something relevant to your needs.

Everybody is different, and so are one’s interests, hobbies, skills, and friends. One should most definitely avoid posting compromising pictures or posts. Tagged on Facebook in a not-so-flattering way? Delete, delete, delete. Manage your online presence (or at a minimum, the profile you use most often). Why not have many versions of yourself out there, I do. Shawn William Byrd is multi-talented, and wants to display it wherever is appropriate and to his advantage. You should, too.

Oh, and it is much easier when one’s life is self-directed, not pre-defined and structured based upon certain career or employer restrictions.

Happy 4th of July!

Today is the independence day celebration for the United States. Regardless of the state of the union, freedom still reigns. At least we have the ability to express our thoughts without too much difficulty. Some places don’t allow any expression.

We should pay homage to those who provided this country’s founding ideals, such as personal liberty (it is often forgotten that means not infringing on others), as well as general respect to beliefs not of our own. That also doesn’t mean acceptance of those beliefs, just a willingness to acknowledge differences. If those differences cause problems, we also have systems set up to resolve those issues.

This is not a treatise or opinion on any one item, but just a gentle reminder that freedom is fragile, and we should think of the root cause for wanting it.

2012: Doomsday for Girl Scout Cookies! . . . Fiction

The end of the world will because there will be no more fun stuff to eat, like girl scout cookies. My calendar only has pages for 1 month at a time, so I will never reach the end of 2012, hence the end will never make it. Presidents Day 2012 is the actual start of the end of days. There will be the largest wedding of 2012 planned, it will not be hosted by a Mormon, in case you election-day people are worried. It has already been planned out; don’t you know how the government works?

All the girls on next new year’s calendar will be wearing a tattoo of a spacecraft with alien language. These usually go on sale in October, so mark your calendar once Presidents Day 2012 arrives. Girl scout cookies will also add a new flavor, something along the soylent green variety. Then, you can exclaim “it’s made of girls”. Maybe, the color will be similar to the girl scout cookies box, which is similar to the girls uniforms. Hmm. Time to go, my wedding to High Princess Alien Girl awaits.

How Many Girl Scout Cookies Sold in 2012

There are probably millions of girl scout cookies baked and eaten in 2012. Heck, by Presidents Day 2012 there must have been millions shoved down our throats (in a good way). The girls who sell them get some benefit (I assume funds for trips, uniforms, and the like), but what if you are having a wedding? Could you use some of the girl scout cookies for dessert, in addition to cake? Does a Mormon wedding have cookies and cake? What about ice cream? Mark your calendar: Presidents Day 2012 will have nothing but girls, I mean girl scout cookies! It’s not an adult birthday party, so it’s going to be cutesie, not raunchy. That would be in bad taste for a wedding, whether Catholic, Mormon, or otherwise.

Will The World End in 2012?

I don’t know about you, but the calendar in 2012 will keep on going. What indication is there? Besides the normal craziness, we still have Presidents Day 2012 to celebrate. Some girls may have their dreams come true, and have a wedding somewhere at the oceanfront. Don’t forget to order your girls scout cookies! If there are enough orders, then the world can’t end. You can’t just pay for something and not get it delivered. There are obviously other religions out there that believe the end of days. If you are Mormon, you subscribe to that as well, but don’t know of any particular date. There are all the side-street preachers and what some may affectionately call “crazies” predicting 2012 as the end of the world, but Mormon or otherwise, nobody really knows.

If we make it to Presidents Day 2012, then so far, so good. There’s still more calendar days left, more plans for a wedding to make, and more girl scout cookies to bake. Have you noticed that it is always the end of the world? Every generation has their predictions, some are vague, others extremely specific. Me, I’m pretty sure I’ll be celebrating 2013 long after my wedding.
