What’s your name worth?

 

In lieu of the just recently concluded Survivor: Philippines, I would like to share this post I made December 20 of last year. This post was from my other blog, which I would not want to link here because I don’t have that much confidence on that old blog. This entry has a handful of references to the finale episode of Survivor: Nicaragua

Here we go…

Hell yea~, the first 5 minutes of the finale was intense and showed the remaining castaways in the light to why they should win and why they were there.

For me, this episode was more about (1) my personality coming off as very blunt and arrogant, to the point that people are intimidated by me, (2) what is my name worth, and lastly (3) a new blend of faith, and the current faith that I have.

Noticing from my previous posts, most people would most likely hate me at an instant. Many of my friends and even my relatives say I talk with arrogance. Yes, I would confirm that! But to me, that’s better than being seen as a weak individual, because I really am weak inside. This facade seems to be effective because it fends off possible personalities that might tear me down. Ozzy called Sophie a brat, but I can see where Sophie stands at this, and she even broke down. 

What’s your name worth?

Who would have thought that the infamous Rick would blow my mind so hard, the title of this post was a quote from him during the last tribal council. Reputation– it’s one of my kryptonites. I hate putting up a good name for yourself, and in an instant all that you have is a bad reputation. Why not have a bad reputation from the start, and when you do anything good, people would praise you, and doing something bad people would not seem to care. Brilliant isn’t it?

The blind faith game

Also, Ozzy finds his god in nature, it’s where he thinks god lives, and it fuels him to survive the harsh environment with ease.

This post seems to be pointless and out of nowhere, but who cares. It’s mine and it makes me feel good! 

So what makes reputation my weakness? It’s not MY reputation that I call my weakness, it’s my father’s. Ever since I was young, all I could hear from him was, “Do good, or what would other people say. I taught you right, learn to act correctly.”  It’s like being someone’s pet. He’s just in it for himself. But still, he’s my father. But oh well~

Moving on, and talking about R.E.M.’s famous song, all I made were funny faces every time Brandon talked about religion. As Ozzy said, “He’s playing the blind faith game. He thinks he’s playing with god, but he’s not. He’s playing with human beings who are greedy for that money.” I would not explain this further, but f*ck yeah!

Also, Ozzy finds his god in nature, it’s where he thinks god lives, and it fuels him to survive the harsh environment with ease.

P.S. I may or may have edited a few things in this entry because, meh, so icky and not me.

I’m just a curbside prophet and no money on my pocket so bring me back my rocket!
