davidarchie ~ Some of you may have noticed that I took a few weeks off from social media. 😬 It was extremely helpful and allowed me to get a better understanding of myself and where I am at in life. It’s so easy to get caught up in thinking about whether every moment in my life would be pleasing to everyone. Sometimes I get caught up to see if I am having enough interesting moments and witty remarks that will catch enough attention from people. I start rating my self-worth and how good my life is based on if someone chooses to look at my picture and like it or not who after 1 1/2 seconds most likely moves onto thinking about something else and looking at other photos and comments. I feel like I get caught up and obsessed with seeing if they approve or not the moment with comments and believe their comments and likes suddenly determine whether my life is great or not for where I am or what I am doing in the photo. It interferes with me being in the moment and enjoying where I’m at both physically and with my mindset, because I feel like I have to keep finding moments that will get enough people to look and “like.”

I may try to take more time without the temptation of social media and seeing how many likes I can get from a thought, picture, or video, and I would encourage you all to do the same and see what things you can learn about yourself that you may have forgotten while trying to get others’ approval. I will make sure to post more though and find the balance of sharing without caring too much. Haha. I guess it is a pull and tug that we all face throughout our lifetimes—not worrying what others think about us and letting that form our identity while having the courage to share what we learn and who we are.  Know that a new song will be coming out in just a short time, and I’m so excited to share it with you! I will keep you all posted. 👍🏼 #dog #time #socialmediabreak

The Month the Earth Stood Still

Posted by djafan on Monday, February 17, 2014

It was two years ago that David Archuleta left for his mission.  It seems like forever.  Or maybe only a few weeks.  I have an uncanny nonsense for time.  It rivals my sense of direction which is nonexistent.  “When” has no more meaning for me than “where.”  I am always here.  It is always now.  You think I’m kidding, but when people ask me things like, how long have you worked here, lived here, I look at them with a perplexed expression on my face.  I honestly don’t know.  It could have been a decade ago or a few months.  I was here then; I am here now.  I could produce dates at any moment if given the opportunity.  But I could not produce a difference in the feeling I have of my experience of then and now.  For the most part, they would be the same.  Time and space are simply meaningless constructs in some part of my brain that does not measure its passage or proximity.

So I am perhaps the wrong person to write this.  A few days ago I published the article, “Is David Archuleta Coming Home Today?”  Did I really believe he was one of the ones tapped to come home six weeks early when I posted it?  No.  But it pleased me to consider the possibility.

Now, I offer for your consideration this possibility.  That we, all of us, are caught in some sort of time warp.  Think about it.  You don’t have to be temporally challenged like me to know that something is just not adding up.  David did not come home on the 10th of February.  We saw not a shadow of his coming so we are fated for six more weeks of waiting.  Six more weeks.  How long have we been saying and commenting and tweeting that we have just six more weeks to wait?  By my calculation, (dubious I know, coming from me) we have been saying this now for several weeks.  Yet we STILL have six more weeks to wait!  Deductive reasoning will bear me out on this, thusly:

A.  If six weeks ago, David was coming home in six weeks, then David should be home.

B.  David is not home.

C.  Time has stopped.

Elementary logic.  If A is true and B is true, then it follows that C must also be true. This is just a working hypothesis and I earnestly hope that time will prove me wrong.  You know, that thing that’s broke.

Is that clock even working down there? ↓
