Uninvited Hatred

We all have them. Psychopathic thoughts are not peculiar, but they’re not everyday. Cruel, perverted, or grotesque thoughts sometimes find a way to pop up during the randomest times. Sadly, I’m normal; therefore, I’m not immune to psychopathic thoughts.  Today someone upset me and I tried to shrug it off, but then an innocent stranger said the wrong thing.  I ended up in a very angry mood. I wanted to punch the guy. I wanted to yell. I held in the violence, yet wore my frustration on my face. The unnecessary and uncalled for wrath toward the man turned into self-loathing.  I am so disappointed in myself for letting the petty anger grow into something regretful. Although I didn’t say or do anything harmful, I wore the anger on my face. I need to be a better person and it’s so hard to do so when these cruel things pop up in my head. I don’t have much a conclusion for this post, but just pray for me. Just some songs I listened to while writing this

"True Detective" Reaction

HBO’s True Detective is a dark, crime drama that been called “twisted” and “disturbing.” While this show thrives with being those things, it lacks at being entertaining.  The storyline(s) were too complex with too many subplots and too many characters to keep up with.  It all felt like a drag. Although True Detective was a bore, I credit it for bringing Matthew McConaughey out of the “prince charming” typecast.  They showed us that he can be far more than a southern gentleman or a cheesy rom com actor. The last time he was in something serious was in A Time to Kill and that was in the ‘90s. He really re-enforced himself as an actor and now Hollywood is taking him seriously. Overall, I give True Detective 2.5 out of 5 stars. I guess I’m not the target audience for it, but it wasn't as intense as Breaking Bad or Fargo.
