The Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 Series 800 Terminator was sent by Skynet in 2029 to Los Angeles in 1984 to kill Sarah Connor, the future mother of John Connor, the leader of the future human Resistance. It was the first of the Infiltrators sent back on assassination missions by Skynet, and is arguably the single most significant Terminator unit as it inadvertently "fathered" Skynet in its journey through time, similar to how Kyle Reese fathered John Connor in his.
Been so busy with work. I finally had time to edit them.
My family went on a Royal Caribbean cruise back in March-April to celebrate the milestone April birthdays.
The first two days were spent at sea on our way to Labadee, Haiti.
We went to Labadee, Haiti (day 3) and Falmouth and Ocho Rios Jamaica (day 4).
I didn't go on any excursion on day 6 so I just took videos from events on the ship.
Sometimes no matter how many friends you have in your life you'll come to a realization that you're completely alone. You always will be and that's okay. It's not about relationships or significant others.
It's just that no one can better understand you but you. No one quite understands your dreams. They pretend to, they sympathize and speculate with you, but you know, that one day when you finally stand on that hot Martian surface, or when you savor that moment before a speech at that long awaited awards ceremony, you'll look down.
You'll see the carefully polished floor underneath your snug fitting dress shoes, the red Martian dirt shifting under the weight of your boots, and it will just be you, your shoes, and no one else. Silence.
Above all else we seek acceptance and understanding. In the end we can only accept ourselves and understand our own condition.
The proper term is "asocial." When my cousins are on their phones during dinner the whole time, my aunt says they are being "anti social" (or non-socializing).
In any case, its hermit mode for me on and offline. I have no energy to talk to people on a Facebook. No energy to comment. Probably a like or react. Same situation offline.
Maybe I like the passiveness of my tiny blog in the corner of the web, writing down everything, unfiltered to a degree. Whereas a Facebook status update, a tweet, or a comment on everything social media + forums often elicit instant replies, likes/reacts, share/retweets, almost like face-to-face interactions which warrant a follow up response.
Ironically, this was the case for blogging. But technology has caught up and, with a smartphone readily available, you can update on the fly.
Maybe I just need to detox. Probably not the proper term.
