Be kind.

Do not be nice, but be kind.  The difference is subtle, but important.

A nice guy inherently expects something in return. His satisfaction lies in the reward for being nice.

A kind person is on his own accord, and has no expectations of reciprocation. His satisfaction lies in the act of being kind.

Be kind, my friend.

Bruce Wayne watched his own parents die when he was like.. 10?  Then he was this dark, disturbed high schooler who went to a Gotham private high school and eventually to Gotham State majoring in Criminology and Engineering.

He then treks around the world learning martial arts and making connections he’ll use later in his transformation into the Dark Knight.

Batman wasn’t really Batman until he was 25 according to Frank Miller, and he had been working on this identity since his parents died.

That’s 15 years of working on himself before he even saw the results of his labor.  That’s 15 years of working on yourself before your personal crime fighting project takes flight.

Being awesome takes work.  Being awesome takes time.  Don’t ever lose sight of this.

Hello World!

Hi!  It’s been a while, internet.

This old site again.  Yungism.com started out as a personal digital sandbox.  My nerdy expedition into the world of HTML, PHP, and all that jazz.  Its focus was on all the coolest flashy web features.  Consequently, it was always down or under construction…  🙁  Content-wise it’s never amounted to much, and in retrospect it was more indicative of my need to play with technology than a way to express my thoughts.

It’s been a while since I’ve written for myself, or for pleasure.  Let’s see how rusty I am.  With my failing memory, I have hope that this site will become a place to gather and store my thoughts, views, and experiences.  At least some of the more personal tidbits.  Too personal for Facebook, anyway.

I made a promise to myself that this blog’s layout will stay this way.  Clean, uncluttered, and focused on the content.  No more fancy widgets.  No more fancy tinkering.  This reincarnation will hopefully stick.  I owe this to myself, at least.

I’m also not very sure of the direction I’m taking this blog.  Hmm.. so if everything up and disappears one day, it’s because I’ve decided for it to be a private journal!  Sorry!

Unless I only make some of it private.  This requires tinkering, however…
