Do you Fight to Live or Live to Die?


I HAVEN’T BLOGGED IN ALMOST 2 YEARS! WELCOME BACK ME! I needed a break while I worked on my Writing Catalog. I signed a deal with LOTT (Leaders of Tomorrow, Today...) and I can’t wait to show you all what we cooked up. After the release of MIU, LOTT put me back on blogs. So here I am world!

Back to business! How's Life? Really think about that question before you continue reading a newly installed segment Dear Journal, consisting of opinionated perspectives on concepts to this thing we call life.

It's two umbrella reasons we live life. You either fight to live or you live to die. I'm not here to get religious on the people but to tell the people what's really going on in society from my perspective.

I fight to live everyday that I wake up in the morning until I fall asleep that night. Why? I'm not finished doing my job. As a college graduate, working in my field of study, owing twice my salary in student loans (almost $80,000), I KNOW It has to be more to life. This is not what I was promised as a child.

Growing up adults told us, “Go to college, find a job, and you’ll be set for life.”

The only problem is that being 26 in 2014 is much different than it was in 1977. In those days you could find a job and live a happy, middle class life. Recent college graduates enter the real world ranks as an upper poor class citizen, financially speaking. The power of the dollar has decreased annually, while salaries of the middle class have barely risen in comparison. The middle class is slowly disappearing while the rich keeps getting richer. Sound familiar? If you know your history it should.
