The Fisherman’s Challenge


Everyone knows that ‘unfortunately’ I am a fishing maniac. When I wasn’t fishing, I had other fishermen (generic word that also incorporate fisher-women) ‘fish’ for/with me. For as long as I remember, as young as I could, fishing was a favorite pass-time that I couldn’t seem to ever change. Though there had been about half a year in the long past (meaning about 11 years ago) that I didn’t fish due to reasons I rather not talk about again.

So what is The Fisherman’s Challenge? The TFC is what Ms. Spongey has challenged me to do. This is the criteria:

– cannot fish for one month
– I am allowed to fish as much as I want for one day every 30 days
– however others are allowed to fish for/with me any time in the 30 days

– in return, she has to meet a fishing quota of at least twice a week

I think that’s pretty fair……. She suggested once every two weeks but I think once every month would be a real challenge. It WILL drive me friggin crazy. Alas, starting Monday at 12:01am, the challenge will start. Of course, if Spongey breaks her “at least twice a week”, then I believe I am able to break it once for every week she doesn’t meet the quota.

Seriously, I don’t know how I am going to survive by not fishing. It is mainly a medical condition that I must fish. However, I do notice that when I fish so often, I can only ‘catch’ smelt, but if I don’t fish for a long time, I will be able to ‘catch’ sockeye or salmon, or maybe even sturgeon! I think if I don’t fish for a month, I may even be able to ‘capture’ a massive blue whale or a lochness monster!

That means NO fish for 30 days at a time! HOLY CRAP!

  1. BTW Spongey, you mentioned I took out two entries… Which two entries are you referring to?

  2. The entry where you had to input a password. I never figured out what it was… what is it?

  3. The password is at the end of the Chum Cha in the “Who’s Li?” section. Mind you, there is a reason why I PW protected it. So brace yourself for some stuff that resembles a mildly evil version of myself… 8/

Leemanism is about my views, my thoughts, and my feelings with as little filtering as possible. These concepts are not reflected in the people I value and are associated with. People who accept me, adhere to the parts where we are compatible and tolerate the parts where we are not. So however people perceive me to be, ultimately it obviously doesn't mean the friends I mention in this blog are the same as me. It means it's possible they are similar or the same, as well as different than me. It is highly unusual for people to be completely compatible with each other.

With that out of the way, and to make things clear, I never said I am a good person, nor am I trying to be one, though I would rather live with the empathetic than with the cruel. I would not deliberately do harm. I rather stand up against injustice than to pretend it doesn't exist. However, I understand consequences. The police is there to enforce the law, but not deter crimes from happening. Which means people must do what they must do to protect themselves, before the law of the land takes over and even then, the law of the land isn't there to protect you. It's there to protect the general consensus. Even if you may be right, society may deem you wrong - even most of your friends may side with society, than protect you. The law will almost always side with society.

We are few. Stay safe. (•̀ᵥᵥ•́)
