The Life of Ern…

We don’t want no devil’s in the house tonight. 

The Life of Ern

If I were to die today, tomorrow’s headline would read “27 Year-Old man died while shielding little girl from gunfire while simultaneous fighting off pack wolves during devastating earthquake.”

That’s right, I’m going out in a blaze of glory.

My problem though is the 27 year-old man part of the headline. 27 year old man. Like shit, that makes me sound old. Like really old. Like, oh well, he did live 27 years of life. He’ll be okay.

So I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately…

What makes an adult?

27 years old but I’m immature AF.

When I see an elderly couple hold hands, my first reaction is like “Gaaaayyyy”. True Story.

I’m a giant kid at heart. That’s the one thing that hasn’t change about me. Because I’m loyal to my ideas; my beliefs. The world has yet to change me to my core.

Sure, I do adult things: work full time, go the gym, go on dates, hit up bars, etc… But I’m so much more than your average.

I read comic books (I prefer you call them graphic novels though), I collect watches, I play video games, I keep up with the latest tech news, I like movies, I’m an audiophile and so on.

So what make’s me an adult?

I have theory:

We become an adult when we start dealing with stress. I’ve been very fortunate enough to deal with very little stress growing up.

Never did I have to worry about where I was going to sleep at night, or if I had food for dinner, or if my life was really in danger.

I know life is though, and for some of my peers, they had to deal with real shit early in their lives. Pending pregnancies, family fights, tragic accidents, money issues.

Imagine dealing with that shit in your teen years. There is no choice but to accept life for what it is. That’s the key.

Now, I’ve had my low’s in life. Don’t get it twisted.

Ladies and gentlemen, Big Ern has been broke for a very long time. The financials have played a huge part of me growing up and dealing with it.

Thoughts of suicide have popped off before. Just thoughts though. I think it’s pretty normal. Who hasn’t thought about what would happen if you died right now? How many lives would your death effect?

That shit is scary to me though. I know I’m loved. And I know my passing would effect those who truly care about me, and I just can’t do that to them.

But what are we living for?

Is it that wrong of me to not want to have kids? Why should I conform to the social norms and get married? What if I don’t want to get married?

These are the questions that have been buggy me lately.

Truthfully, I’m happy. I am in a good position.

Yes, it could be better, but I am way better than I was a year ago. I’m very bless. I know this.

Kanye West once tweeted, “There are always going to be struggles no matter what level you are in life” Or something like that. I don’t know, go look up the tweet.

And it’s true.

There is always something that is going to be a struggle for you. But at the end of day, what those struggles do to me, still don’t faded me to my core.

Yes, I can be arrogant, moody, misogynistic, and a bit of an asshole. But I keep myself in check and acknowledged my own faults.

At least I don’t walk around like some of you jackasses and just annoy people by rhetoric. I’m looking at you, Trump.

That’s my life. I’m a self identify man-child with issues and I’m okay with that.

I don’t want to explain my self anymore than that. So just…

Tell my baby I’m back in town! *Young Thug’s Voice*

Because…

Top 10 Albums of 2015 *An ezb14 special*

Another year gone, another year full of great albums. This is just my preferences and albums I like, but I want you to take my word as law. Let’s begin. (BTW, all these albums have download links)

10. If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late – Drake

You can’t hate on the guy. He just puts out good music time and time again. Even if he doesn’t write some of these songs himself, Drake is still dope.

9. The Cut – Young Darias

An underrated artist, with an underrated album. It’s fantanstic and you can defiantly hear Young D’s improvements on the records he’s making. It’s dope seeing someone you know kill it on the music tip.

8. The Incredible True Story – Logic

He did it again. Logic is often accused of jacking flows, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s not as great as I wanted it to be, but it’s one of the best this year. Check it out.

7. The Documentary 2 (Disc 1 & 2) – The Game

Not gonna lie, I thought The Game was washed. But then I heard The Documentary 2, and wow – he still has it. It’s hard to compare this to the original classic, but if you take your time and listen to BOTH of discs, you can see why it made it on my list.

6. F.W.A – Lil Wayne

The Free Weezy Album didn’t get a lot of hype, but it deserve’s it. I haven’t heard the Carter V, but if it did drop, I hope it was better than this, b/c Weezy F. Baby is on point throughout this whole project.

Some dope Chrome Extensions….

I’m looking out for y’all.

Therefore, let me just copy & paste this bad ass article I read on Yahoo entitled, “10 free Chrome hacks that will change the way you browse the Internet“.

Definitely look into this if you’re dope  and you do dope things.

And if you’re not using a Chrome browser, what’s wrong with you? It’s 2015, grow up.

All hail Google!

Peep the article below.

 

10 free Chrome hacks that will change the way you browse the Internet by Zach Epstein.

Google’s Chrome web browser accounted for 31.41% of global desktop browsing in November, according to Net Marketshare. That makes it the second most popular browser in the world behind Internet Explorer, which had a global market share of 50.03% in November. IE and Microsoft Edge’s combined share continues to decline each month despite continuing to ship on millions of computers. Meanwhile, Chrome has enjoyed consistent growth as more and more people abandon the alternatives.

But as good as Chrome is, there are plenty of simple ways to make it better. In this post, we’ll tell you about free 10 extension for Google’sChrome browser that will change the way you surf the web.

Betternet

Protecting yourself while you browse the web is imperative these days. A good VPN service is the first and most important step in making sure that your privacy and anonymity are respected. There are plenty of services out there, but Betternet will protect you for free. The service makes money when users install apps from its partners — you can learn more here.

Instapaper

Did you just come across an article you want to read but you don’t have the time right now? A simple click on the Instapaper button in Chrome will save the article for later. Then you can visit the Instapaper site whenever you want and read the article in a simplified reader layout, or you can click through to read it on the original site.

Download Instapaper for free

Sideplayer

You can stop watching YouTube for 12 seconds to browse to another page, but why should you have to? Sideplayer shrinks any YouTube video down and places it in a small box similar to picture-in-picture on a TV. The box hovers over whatever other page you’re on, so you never have to stop watching that cute cat video on loop while you browse.

Download Sideplayer for free

Sidenote

Sticking with the “side” theme for a moment, Sidenote is a simple extension for Chrome that lets you take notes in a panel on the side of your browser while you surf the web.

StayFocused

You will absolutely hate this Chrome extension, but you’ll thank us later. StayFocus blocks time-wasting websites like Facebook and Twitter so you can stay on task and work more efficiently.

1Password

Passwords are a huge pain. Using the same password on every site makes it easier to log in everywhere, but it’s insanely unsecure. Instead, 1password manages all your passwords for you. It creates nice long passwords for each site you log into, and you never have to remember any of them. With the Chrome extension, simply click the 1Password icon, enter your “one password” to unlock it, and then the app will log you into whatever site you’re on.
