The Travii Manifesto

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 3, 2010, 9:58 AM



My name is Travis Randall Williams. I was born on October 27th in 1987 in Scranton, Pennsylvania to Theresa and Randall Williams. I have one younger brother and a deceased younger sister.

I graduated from Abington Heights High School in the summer of 2006. I have not gone to a place of higher education. I'm not sure I want to yet, either. However, I have continued learning.

I believe that love is love, no matter the other person's gender, though, I identify with being a homosexual. I have had feelings of love for some very specific women, however.

I'm an agnostic theist, which means I believe in a god type force/being, but I'm uncertain about the existence of one from lack of evidence. I don't trust religion. It's too often used to excuse or justify the worst sides of people.

More often than not, I believe in forgiveness. Other times, I believe that a minor period of anger before forgiveness is appropriate. I'm never truly angry for long. Also, most times I'm angry, someone has hurt a friend. I can count the times on one hand that I've been angry because someone has wronged me. I've only ever held one grudge. It was worth holding it.

I can be friends with anyone, even those with no other friends. I am friends with people who are not friends with people who are not or could not be friends with other people I'm friends with. It complicates things. But everyone needs a friend once in a while. I'll do just about anything for my friends when they need it.

I'm very trusting. Sometimes it's caused me problems. My trust is easily earned once. Hardly earned twice. Never earned three times.

Sometimes I contradict myself. However, I only argue when I truly believe I'm right. I only believe I'm right when I have justification to believe so. Sometimes, very few times, this justification can be misguided.

I'm broke, but I'm not poor. Poor's too permanent a status.

Sometimes, I have a short attention span. If it's really important, I'll never blink and my hearing will never waiver.  

I can be very polite or very crude. It depends on the situation.

I'm a jack of all trades, a master of none. Some friends call me "The Platypus", I think it fits concerning the prior sentence.

I believe in a person's inherent beauty and good. The only thing that detracts from this is bad deeds. Negative feelings are natural to everyone, acting on them is not.

I rarely ever use the word hate seriously.  

I'm a complex and beautiful human being. You are too. But every thought and feeling we've ever had has been been had countless numbers of times before we've had them. It's impossible being a true individual knowing that.

I can never own enough or too much underwear.

I love the color orange. This will never change. If it did, I'd have to get rid of a major portion of my stuff.

I'm politically apathetic the same reason I don't trust religion. However, I can sometime speak knowledgeably about both subjects.

I don't believe in an eye for an eye. I believe in a favor for a favor and an apology for a wrong doing. An eye for an eye would leave the world blind. What's done is done and can never be undone. It's best to just move on.

I have no moral objection to porn, offensive images, breast feeding, etc. If you're offended by it, don't look for it. Should the occasion arise where you are confronted by such a thing regardless of whether you were looking for it or not, look away. There's only two reasons why people create or do such things. They either know that you don't like it or they like it themselves.

There's nothing wrong with being happy. Don't be guilty about it. Don't make someone else feel guilty about it either.

Don't let your vices tarnish your virtues. Use your vices to make your virtues more appreciated. Do this wisely.

I believe the only thing about common sense is the lack thereof.

I believe I am finished.

Happy fractaling!
Travii

>>My name is Travis Randall Williams. I was born on October 27th in 1987 in Scranton, Pennsylvania to Theresa and Randall Williams. I have one younger brother and a deceased younger sister.<<

Uhh detailed - are you sure your parents would like their names on here? :3 :D

>>I graduated from Abington Heights High School in the summer of 2006. I have not gone to a place of higher education. I'm not sure I want to yet, either. However, I have continued learning.<<

Hmm since german school system is different I just can say I have visited 13 classes (actually 14 because I repeated the 12th ^^) - but that was 3 years ago ^^

>>I believe that love is love, no matter the other person's gender, though, I identify with being a homosexual. I have had feelings of love for some very specific women, however.<<

I kinda like how you wrote that one. I'm just not sure if you are gay or bi :confused: From what you stated you are gay - from what the whole thing says I'd rather think you are bi with more male tendencies (just like me being bi with more female tendencies ^^) but oh well whatever lol
Though I now feel even more flattered that you are calling me to be a pretty lady ^^

>>I'm an agnostic theist, which means I believe in a god type force/being, but I'm uncertain about the existence of one from lack of evidence. I don't trust religion. It's too often used to excuse or justify the worst sides of people.<<

Amen! I guess we are much similar with this one :D

>>More often than not, I believe in forgiveness. Other times, I believe that a minor period of anger before forgiveness is appropriate. I'm never truly angry for long. Also, most times I'm angry, someone has hurt a friend. I can count the times on one hand that I've been angry because someone has wronged me. I've only ever held one grudge. It was worth holding it.<<

Anger is also an emotion - if you can't be angry you can't truely forgive as well as love is kinda nothing without hate or disliking something/someone ^^ - that topic has kind of its own philosphy...

>>I can be friends with anyone, even those with no other friends. I am friends with people who are not friends with people who are not or could not be friends with other people I'm friends with. It complicates things. But everyone needs a friend once in a while. I'll do just about anything for my friends when they need it.<<

:aww: sweet - yeah some of my friends are kinda complicated as well but I ain't easy as well so whatever xD

>>I'm very trusting. Sometimes it's caused me problems. My trust is easily earned once. Hardly earned twice. Never earned three times.<<

Amen!

>>Sometimes I contradict myself. However, I only argue when I truly believe I'm right. I only believe I'm right when I have justification to believe so. Sometimes, very few times, this justification can be misguided.<<

Hmm - well I actually avoid serious arguements not because I don't have justifications but because I prefer clinical discussion - though I act pretty touchy now and then when I feel bugged/trolled/misunderstood. But I was raised (risen?) to be a kind of good-weather-woman...

>>I'm broke, but I'm not poor. Poor's too permanent a status.<<

I guess that is another Amen from my side :D :D :D

>>Sometimes, I have a short attention span. If it's really important, I'll never blink and my hearing will never waiver.<<

:D :D :D

>>I can be very polite or very crude. It depends on the situation.<<

Ohh I believe :eyes: I kinda experienced half of both by now ;)

>>I'm a jack of all trades, a master of none. Some friends call me "The Platypus", I think it fits concerning the prior sentence.<<

I kinda try to be a jack of all trades as well or better said not try but it kinda happens that I've started going that way ^^

>>I believe in a person's inherent beauty and good. The only thing that detracts from this is bad deeds. Negative feelings are natural to everyone, acting on them is not.<<

:confused: Now I wonder what that means - well the last sentence I mean...

>>I rarely ever use the word hate seriously.<<

Amen.

>>I'm a complex and beautiful human being. You are too. But every thought and feeling we've ever had has been been had countless numbers of times before we've had them. It's impossible being a true individual knowing that.<<

:confused: Is that kind of a philosophy? If so than explain...

>>I can never own enough or too much underwear.<<

LOL

>>I love the color orange. This will never change. If it did, I'd have to get rid of a major portion of my stuff.<<

Orange is pretty ok though I prefer red and green :D :D :D

>>I'm politically apathetic the same reason I don't trust religion. However, I can sometime speak knowledgeably about both subjects.<<

Sounds pretty much like myself but I kinda can't talk about politics because I'm just not interested in them - well not seriously though I always read stuffs before I go voting for political stuff... I think it is better to vote than to not do it and than complainm about what came out in the end...

>>I don't believe in an eye for an eye. I believe in a favor for a favor and an apology for a wrong doing. An eye for an eye would leave the world blind. What's done is done and can never be undone. It's best to just move on.<<

Agreed. An eye for an eye is somewhat immature I think...

>>I have no moral objection to porn, offensive images, breast feeding, etc. If you're offended by it, don't look for it. Should the occasion arise where you are confronted by such a thing regardless of whether you were looking for it or not, look away. There's only two reasons why people create or do such things. They either know that you don't like it or they like it themselves.<<

Hmm... What about only not wanting art-less nude stuff on dA? I actually enjoy artistic nude stuff but some stuff people are uploading to dA is far more or better less than that. though I admit I also fav amateur nudes when I like something about the woman :3 her hair or face for example ^^

>>There's nothing wrong with being happy. Don't be guilty about it. Don't make someone else feel guilty about it either.<<

Agreed - though I admit there are times when I'm dead jealous when people are happy and me not - but not because I want them to feel guilty ^^

>>Don't let your vices tarnish your virtues. Use your vices to make your virtues more appreciated. Do this wisely.<<

:confused: I'm either to tired or too dumb to get this...too high for me ^^;

>>I believe the only thing about common sense is the lack thereof.<<

Maybe...

>>I believe I am finished.<<

So am I than :D :D :D

I hope I didn't run you over with this xD
