Mind Meets Body Face To Face Both So Dissapointed

Vision skewed mind turned to dust

body is aching and beginning to rust

Work is convoluted while pacing here

And there accomplishing little life is so

blatantly unfair

At one point in time friends and family were there

Looking back now nobody really actually cared

Down but never out resiliant to this pain

Screaming out loud this is all just a game

Come And Go With Me

True Is True I am I And You Are You

I am not a photojournalist, and the intention of this blog to serve as a personal blog is 0. However, aesthetics and design are two significant themes  of content produced, and what the identity of my site is. Looking forward, I want to remove myself from posts as much as possible, and produce content that is aimed to be of use or benefit for my viewers. With that being said, imagery and media  files will be used often to complement what I write. Also, nothing I have posted or will in the future is remotely someone else’s graphics or photography. Any creative works on this site are my own artistic works. There have been a couple people wondering, so I thought it was necessary to say. Take a second to check out  some of my photography of some earthly things!

Extroversion Vs Introversion From The Perspective Of An INFJ Personality Type

Ignorance Is Bliss

When describing the word introvert most people would say, “An individual who is quiet, shy, reserved, and keeps to themselves.” Those are not necessarily positive or negative000 po 0 attributes, but if one must pick, then in most circumstances they sway to the negative side of the spectrum. An individual is asked, “what does being an extroverted mean?” Their response would be something similar to “A person who is outgoing, talkative, and and personable. ” These descriptions of Introversion and extroversion are facades, and simply inaccurate to the true meanings of the words.

Introversion 101

Let me begin by focusing on the word introversion. Intro- version, in- tro -vers-ion. The true definition of the word is looking inward, or too reflect on ones self. In psychology, being extroverted or introverted is one of the most significant charachteristics that make up the profile of an individual’s personality. The profilic Carl Jung can be given credit for coining these terms. Just reading a synopsis of personality in psychology, there would be the realization that being shy is not a personality trait. Shyness is a learned behaviour, and it can be out grown overtime. Introversion can come across as narcissistic if a person is overly introspective. I already stated the true definition is self reflection, so it is only natural to be self conscious and aware of emotions, thoughts, morals, and values. It can be easily understood then that introverts have a lot too say about themselves. Environment always plays a role in human behaviour. Depending on the circumstances, an introverted person will often not talk because they are either uncomfortable, or just not interested in the discussion. They are well capable of social interaction, however it is taxing to the mind and body.

Opposites Attract

I love being around completely different personalities and energy levels. I have more extroverted friends than introverted. Personal experience has shown for me that extroverts are easier to talk to in most cases. I learn more from them, and being so idealistic I need a few realists in my life for my well-being. Breaking down the roots of the actual word Extro-version ex-tro-vers-ion. It literally means to look externally for stimulus.

Being An Introvert Myself

Personally, I am the purest introvert that one could be, but in certain situations I will conversate for hours on end. That would seem a bit paradoxical to the majority. Understanding that point of view is reasonable though, reading and learning isn’t for everyone. Often, the subject of psychology and psychiatry has been under scrutiny by the masses, and this is well deserved. Take a brief second to look at the horrific history, and the atrocities that took place. Also, the valid criticisms of psychology and psychiatry for being a “Psuedo Science,” for the lack of any hard evidence presented in their theories. More widely accepted now is their conclusions to questions asked, as case studies and research have so vastly advanced over time.

Newbies

The birth of several generations has occured since Carl Jung passed 60+ years ago. Now it has been recognized by the scientific community that their are exceptions to being one or the other. Two additional hybrids that take from polar oppositeites of the gamete. They have been coined Ambiversion and omniversion. Frequently overlooked, they are what is known as being average or innthe middle. They are equally drained by social interaction, and equally extroverted in different environments. Ambiverts are highly extroverted in exceptionally stimulating environments, and omniverts tend to be extroverted in low stimulating environments.

THE WALMART EXPERIENCE

To ask for help at Walmart the other day, and every employee ran away from me. They aren’t used to people asking them questions obviously. Amazon has put a good portion of the incompetent employees at that abysmal store back on disability which I guess is better than running away from customers at a workplace. They need to be required to have IQ levels above 70. This is the threshold of mentally handicapped, and certainly some people there are not surpassing 70+IQ. They should have a show on fox news or comedy central of Walmart interviewing potential employees. I would watch.

GANESHA

I have long been an atheist, as I have watched all the Hitchens, Hawkins, and Harris debates over the years. they make powerful arguments against religion and would often make opponents look foolish. They are such incredible orators, I found myself being caught in the wonderful display of wordsmiths slaying for fun instead of taking interest in the overbearing pessimism of their conversations. I recently divulged into learning about Hinduism, and like many westerners have, was lucky enough to be aware of my own ignorance of the religion. I honestly fell in love with it. The dark ages of Hinduism are no worse than the other biblical scriptures. Nobody is arguing that, but the religion aligns quite closely to my own personal beliefs. Ganesha is the most popularized 10th hindu God in the western world because of what Ganesha represents, and how it appears like in the flesh. Americans get Ganesha tattoos all the time, and they look amazing to me if done right. Without reading a line of hindu scripture, they are spreading Hinduism without the intention of doing so.

The Implications of Sea Level Rise on MacArthur Beach State Park


For all of the global warming deniers, or the ones shrugging it off saying it is not a big deal move to South Florida in a few years. You will be underwater swimming with all of the invasive species. Living in South Florida as an undergrad at the time,I was interested to know about what this place would look like in the not too distant future. I devised a case study focusing on MacArthur Beach State Park. I wanted to make a prediction model based on the accelerated rates of sea level rise each year using the scientific method, data from NOAA, compiling my own data, surveying techniques, GIS, and the implementation of satellite imagery. The prediction model was represented by a timeline from the year 2017-2100. Inputting the data at certain focal points demonstrated the park will be severely inundated by 2050. Devastating habitat loss of the most biodiverse preservation in the state. Protected native species of animals and plants will be nearly wiped out. By 2100, the model shows the park will no longer exist submerged under the ocean. Prediction models are not 100 proof, but they are a useful to give perspective on matters the world is facing.

This image is the depiction of the final results of my case study. With help of a lot of gracious people that are involved in state park services, professors, NOAA, and the collaboration of my peers I was able to bring awareness to the devastating magnitude of global warming.

12 Week Mind/Body Transformation Guide

When I was like 19 or 20 years old in college I would watch this guy Rich Piana on YouTube almost everyday. He was Juiced out of his mind with 23 inch biceps and over 300lbs. I had never seen a human look that way, and so I began watching his videos. I was shocked at how much I learned from this monster. He was a highly motivating person as well. Part teacher/motivational speaker I listened to him for the great advice and entertaining videos.

If you really get into the gym culture, then you know the industry is full of scammers who sell you false promises and overpriced cookie cutter programs, while at the same Time claiming natural at 4% bodyfat and 250lbs. Unfortunately, Rich passed away in 2017 at age 46. He was very honest to steroid abuse, and abused them for over 25 years. He basically said he doesn’t recommend people to juice and didnt promote them in any way. I’ll share what I learned from watching him all those years ago, and I’ll discuss my personal 12 week transformation story.

The first step is being motivated to being the best version of yourself. Then, you have to experiment with what works best for you in terms of diet and workout routine. Obviously weight loss is simple. You just put your body in a caloric deficit. Doing loads of cardio isn’t even necessary for weight loss I never did cardio except at work in a restaurant as a food runner. If you do cardio, do it at the opposite time of day you’re lifting weights. You’ll lose your pump if you do it afterwards when you should be consuming real food. Real food and not just whey shakes. Whey doesnt really make much difference. I would have a shake but with real food too. If you do cardio before, then you wont have as hard of a workout because you just got burned out on the stair climber for 15 minutes. What a waste. Most people want to lose fat and gain muscle. You cant do both at once, so if that is your goal you will get leaner, but lose a good amount of strength as well. If you’re going for the Brad Pitt shredded fight club look he weighed 155lbs in that movie. So, when it comes to dieting, everybody metabolizes macros differently. I was in a pretty big deficit of 400-600 calories a day. 3500 calories is one pound so it comes down to math. Every morning I would religiously have a bowl of plain oats and egg whites. I’m sorry, but that takes a lot of discipline. I ate super clean and cut carbs. I removed sugar completely out of my diet. I consumed around 40 grams of fats per day mostly in peanut butter and cheeses. Eating different foods and switching up routines is a great way to shock the body. The body responds more when its shocked. When i was more advanced and had been lifting for over 5 years, I experimented with intermittent fasting. I fell in love with it. You get shredded and can feast on anything you desire. I probably wouldn’t recommend it because if you work a 9-5 job you’re not going to feel so great. Black coffee helps as a suppressant. I worked out 2 days on 1 day off. Rest is key. When the body is Sleeping is when your muscles that are torn apart from lifting heavy recover. although I was getting around  fours of sleep per night ,I recommend six hours it least if you lifted that day.

People want instant gratification and are often impatient. They will starve themselves and run 5 miles. That’s an amazing  recipe you cheating on diet and quitting. Consistent diet is about 90 percent of it. My routine consisted of STRETCHING and WARMING up the muscle fibers I would be targeting before performing mostly compound movements as heavy as possibble in the 5-8 rep range. It is easier to get injured while in a caloric deficit, so really its an unnecessary risk to do less than 5 reps. I personally would do accessory movements like weighted chin ups, dips, and dumbell bench. Anything bodyweight is a great accessory too after the main compound movements. 

Getting a pump, and then seeing results will release a tremendous amount of neurotransmitters like dopamine, nopenephrin, and serotonin. The last 2 weeks workout and diet as hard as you can. Its important to finish strong. After 12 weeks I had lost 37 lbs, was about 10% body fat with an 8 pack. Going through this 3 month transformation was one of the most satisfying feelings in my life. I was healthy, lean, and feeling lucid mentally. 3 months of pain to become the best version you can be at that moment.

I’ll post a photo timeline slideshow of my 12 week transformation down below. I did have some muscle mass to begin, so it wasn’t like I was starting from zero. However, I was 200 lbs and out of shape. Heres the progression of  my 3 month transformation starting on day 1.
