About

After a ten year hiatus of not writing I´m back to what I really love, and relatively new to a whole new world called social media.The blog ranges from poems ,stories,some flash fiction to my outrageous thoughts about things,people, society, and me. I feel like I´m really late to the party being 32 and discover there is such thing called twitter. But better late than never. A relatively novice writer, a thinker, trying often to play with the absurd to make it sound rational and sometimes I get serious. I hvae an ironic-sarcastic-dark sense of humour that can be insulting for some and funny to others. And the quotes below are mine! no copyright here. Forgot. I smoke too muchFoto 344

” IT DOESN´T MATTER WHAT THEY SAY, IT ONLY MATTERS WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND CAPABILITIES.”

“TRYING YOUR BEST IS NOT ENOUGH, TRY HARDER.”

“DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND FUCK EVERYTHING ELSE.”

“LIVE THE PRESENT, ENJOY, AND YOU WILL FIND OPPORTUNITIES IN LIFE HOWEVER SMALL THEY ARE.”

“LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND YOU, IT WILL ONLY PUT WALLS IN YOUR PRESENT MAKING IT HARDER TO SEE NEW FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES .”

“TRUE LOVE IS ONLY AS TRUE AS YOU THINK IT IS….THERE IS NO TRUE LOVE.”

“WRITE, WRITE AND WRITE IF IT´S YOUR PASSION.”

“ALMOST EVERY BODY SHOULD GO THROUGH BASIC MILITARY TRAINING.”

“YOU TAKE AWAY THE BULLS FROM SPAIN AND IT WILL COST YOU PAIN”

“NEVER EXPECT ANYTHING FREE, EARN IT!”

“WORK HARDER IF IT´S A SHITY JOB YOU MIGHT GET A PROMOTION.”

“LIFE IS NOT FAIR AND YOU HAVE TO FIND HAPPINESS WITH WHAT YOU´VE GOT.”

That pretty much sums me up.

  1. Love the pace of your writing…
    I take photos and I’m hopeless when it comes to writing captions or even describing what the photos are about…wish I had your wit….
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I’m glad you did….gave me the opportunity to read yours…
    Had a quick look at your about page… Noticed one typo (think it’s called that….) the word ‘have’ needs to be amended…hope I don’t offend….

    1. No offense, if that´s the only typo I have in the blog is a miracle.

      I had to smile at the photo you took in Granada, I´m live in Spain and yes, if looks could kill….that was probably a gypsy which we have in abundance here in Spain.

  2. Right with you on the military training. I’m pretty certain that if National Service was introduced, people might moan a little less about the little things.

    1. I think almost everyone should do at least the basic military training, you don´t have to be a soldier since that was my choice to get into that job. But just give civilians a taste what it is to be food wáter deprived, living in shitty conditions,physically and mentally exhausted. Forget about weapons training, just those things and later on you do appreciate a nice warm bed more than ever. Actually a small and out of shape bed you´d think you were in Paradise. And be able to take a bath after almost a month, woooha! You would become a great ecologist, you won´t want to spill a drop of wáter when you drink.

  3. Nice to meet you here. I happen to like “ironic-sarcastic”. Don’t feel behind in the techie ways of life. I live in Silicon Valley and still refuse to own a cell phone.

    There probably needs to be military training for everyone – I’ve thought this for quite some time.

    1. Silicon Valley…. can you hook me up with Mark Suckerberk? ( spelled that wrong for sure, you know the face book guy) The military training… I was just saying that for some people, give them a 2 month basic training and they´ll stop bitching about the small stuff. Stay in the field for 1 week (which later on if you choose that profession one weeks is really a vacation) and they will appreciate a cot and crummy but warm food more than anything in their life´s.

  4. Nice to ‘meet’ you, Charly. I liked your quote “LIVE THE PRESENT, ENJOY, AND YOU WILL FIND OPPORTUNITIES IN LIFE HOWEVER SMALL THEY ARE.” I couldn’t agree more … although I still have to work really hard at it.

    I’m not sure I would ever have survived military training though. I admit to having authority issues. I’m rather happy to have made it this far in life with my rebel streak still intact 😉

    1. Glad to meet you too. Good to have that rebel inside. We are both rebels, you can even be a rebel in the army trust me. And be good soldier at the same time.
      Looking forward to exploring more of your blog when time permits

      1. Jarrod, my man Holy macarroni I should write that myself. And in all seriousness ( apart that I´m a mess) where in the world you got those pictures of spain?

  5. hey Charly,
    Thank you for appreciating my story The Couples and for the follow. In the process, I discovered your blog which is full of wit. I liked your quote “LIFE IS NOT FAIR AND YOU HAVE TO FIND HAPPINESS WITH WHAT YOU´VE GOT.” So true, people often forget to be happy.

  6. “TRUE LOVE IS ONLY AS TRUE AS YOU THINK IT IS….THERE IS NO TRUE LOVE.” I’m laughing so hard right now, actually your quotes are really good. However this is my FAVORITE, maybe because there is much truth to it! Hey, have a great weekend, thanks again for the much needed laugh! ~ Mia

    1. Heeeeeello Mia, nice name by the way. Glad you had a laugh.
      I also have another quote that came to mind right now, since I suffer from OCF wich I wrote in the blog, go figure I write strange things, also by the way OCF stands for Obsessive Compulsive Flirt, forgot, the quote is
      “Do what you want to do and say what you want to say, if people don´t like it F-em, if you don´t créate enemies in this life then you are not living”

      Really appreciate you Reading my nutty things, now hedding to your blog to chech you out….. the wrting I mean

      1. Charly, I want to thank you for a wonderful reply. “OCF”, hahahahaha! That’s wonderful, I’m laughing so hard right now, it’s so great that it should be in the urban dictionary. The second quote is brilliant, “if you don’t create enemies in this life then you are not living”, oh so true! Again laughing, out loud! You’re most welcome, it’s my pleasure! Oh yes, please check me out, *wink*, ha-ha! I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend, enjoy!
        ~ Mia

  7. Those quotes are very true and practical, unlike the ones we see around the internet 🙂 I enjoy a bit of ironic sarcasm, looking forward to reading more of your posts 😀 – Michelle

      1. Nice to meet you too! And sure, haha, there’s nothing wrong with that when I’ll reciprocate 😛 – Michelle

    1. I did change it, you think the picture is different? Common I´m still bold and constantly with a cigarette in my mouth, that is not change, I refuse to change!!!

      1. Change is inevitable dear. 🙂 It is the a bit like the proverbial wine cliche I reckon. Or it is the mouldy bread one. Depends what stuff you are made of.

    1. I saw, but as you know I never participate on the awards thing, for me the ultimate award is that people would actually read my crazy things and think about me for an award. That is more than enough, so thank you a lot.

  8. Thank you for following me, Charly!
    At first sight when I saw your name, I thought …”Oh, a Priest name Charly is following me! Why is a priest following me???”
    Pretty creepy! LOL
    Until I came here.
    hahaha …
    Love your dark and witty blog, Charly.
    I’ll check on you soon.

    (⁀ᗢ⁀)☝

    1. Got to your blog through Mr. Richard Ankers, I figured if he read you, you must be real good at this fascinating world of writing.
      By the way, I can still be creepy without being an actual priest, so don´t take the creep off the table please, is almost a badge of honour.

      1. LOL
        Never mind.
        I think I am creepy myself that I CREEP on myself too.
        This morning, for example, I got a shock after seeing unknown creature in the mirror. Later, after taking a shower then I saw it was just ME! LOL

        Ah, Richard … the good hearted and witty Richard. But let us be honest … no one can beat writing like Richard. He’s the BEST!

      2. I actually can´t wait to wake up and see myself in the mirror, I always think I look great…..wich that is quite creepy.
        Mr.Ankers, “A broken clock”! Yep, that´s what he called me once that I wass like a broken clock, evil caníbal…..good man he is, I still wonder why he reads my so called poetry, but the broken clock comment lead me to write a poem around that phrase and dedícate it to him
        https://charlypriest.wordpress.com/2014/08/14/like-a-broken-clocktribute-to-a-guy/?iframe=true&preview=true

      3. A broken clock? That is a cool title or a name for blog, person, book, or anything.

        LOL Richard is crazy himself. He just don’t know it yet! hehe … Love that guy. What a talent! And has a very good heart too.

        Let me see … you are a broken clock, evil canibal … Interesting personality there! No wonder you creep on your self there! And yes, I do believe that you look great in the early morning for sure. Especially the hair! No need to styling it at all – just so natural out of bed look.

        (⁀ᗢ⁀)

  9. Good quotes! Welcome to the party late. I’m 61 years old and just started blogging and writing for real a couple years ago. So, I hope that makes you feel better.

  10. Awesome quotes, and I used to be in the Army, so I can vouch for that one! Btw… thanks for following and I look forward to reading more from you. One thing I noticed about you straight away, is that you seem to be a very diverse writer. Nobody could ever get bored coming to read your page. Have a lovely rest of your week. 😉 ~M

    1. Right away I can tell you we have two things in common, i was in the army and you to and apart from that thing we both like to write, i even like my own crazy writing wich is strange.
      So you actually read the “about” page…..so that actually sums me up.
      And with more time, or lets say with people around me that I can hear them and just fu…ing around and I can’ t concentrate, i could give them a good fight but we won’t do, now I’ m a pacifist.
      By the way can I ask you in wich branch of the military you served?
      I tell you mine, was infantry in the spanish legion,

      1. Your quotes are some of the best I’ve ever read…. I write all of my own quotes too. I was in the US Army for 5 yrs and worked as an Intelligence Analyst. Those were some of the toughest years of my life, but taught me so much. It shocked the heck out of my family when I joined, but I loved the challenge and mostly joined for the adventurous aspects of it.

      2. Intelligence…….so you can’ t work on me since I have none. B y the way I’ m sure you where an officer, or as you guy say it a NCO or officer. Have you been deployed?……you can answer that one or not but the most important is the thing I say bellow
        Your my girl, ex military, smart, likes to write and me…well I’ m a mess, so you are able to handle me.
        So when do get married? Don’t tell me you have a boy of the friend

      1. Yes mam,
        and I was writing to you a novel of a comment and the shit thing went, I do know but it erased its seld, so I’ll keep it quick if I, can
        1-23 years married not cool
        2-children……they are beast really
        3- husband has to go
        4 is the one where we both appear in
        Japan in the island of Hanoyyy, without
        kids or husbands, I have two by the way, and we just let loose the sun on our bodies, while I drink some wiscky and a cigarette, and then …………………..you tell me what happens

      2. Don’t you love it when your perfectly lovely comment gets erased. 😩 Oh this list totally made me laugh…
        1- My marriage barely survived last year, so I am doing all I can right now to save it.
        2-2 of my girls are already married and I teach two of them at home. They are all the sweetest children I’ve ever known. Maybe I’m biased, but they really are….
        3-husband has to stay, he’s the only reason I can face another day right now.
        4-Sounds like such a lovely fantasy, but why Japan? For me… the beach is the best place for a vacation….. and whiskey sounds great, but cigarettes have to go….. lol….. I think if I was going to go somewhere, it would be to a deserted island, somewhere it’s always warm…. grew up in California…. miss the warm weather and the sounds of the waves…. I don’t miss the crowded beaches.

      3. Having said that, my plan is all much esier for us, your girls are already adults so instead of some random island in Japan, I have my own island near Hawa”i, has a great house and all that you might want, and the fish are fresh, you just call “freddy” that would be the butler, and he fishes for you, so I hope that you bring some good fish

      4. Hawaii does sound nice…. my sister got married there, but I couldn’t go… I have always wanted to visit. I actually have 2 daughters still at home… 8 & 15. How old are yours? I want a butler, but I don’t eat much fish…. I think I’d rather have my own personal chef, even though I am a good cook, I get bored of my own food. I actually like fishing, especially ocean fishing. You never know what you’ll catch! Once caught a baby shark, and then another time this really pretty rainbow colored fish with spikes all over. Was told it was poisonous and not to touch it, very cool looking though!

      5. Well, you have not to worry about the fishing,since you will probably hit me with the hook, and the daughters 8 adn 15, tell them to get a job.
        Not the 8 year old, but the 15…..yes.

      6. I srewed up your cocomment, dont know why it went to spam
        Yes, I haven’ t sleped for two days as of now, and it was Wisconsen, so that is 8 hours from here, damn, is still 5 and 17 minutes a of m, ,I just can;t sleep, take naps here and there but a good 8 hours sleep i cant.
        No wonder the girl left me

      7. this was me 15 years ago,
        LA LEGION LA LEGION BUSCA UN PUTO
        MARICON PA PEGAR UN PALIZON, that was Italian, by the way why in the wold do you have to learn those stupid sayings…..it did pump you up though,
        so here is my gift….reeeeeeeeeeeeeeely
        cool, by the way did I told you my girlfreind left me and I seem to drink a bit over the top?
        Hope doesn’t scare you, so hit it!

      8. Oh that looks way more fun than we ever had….. the cadence we learned, still haunts my dreams…. lol…. btw…. nothing scares me about anyone. I’m the least judgmental person you could ever meet. And I’m sorry you lost your girl….. 😔

      9. Forget about the girl, I lost more people that I wanted to loose,I knew they or me were not going the same way tha we went but i did not think it was 2 guys of my 5 men team, it was my responsibility so fuck the girl, although I can understand it that my performance was not something she could handle, actually only my mother can handle me, the other girls come and go.
        I said too much, going to sleep now if I can…..not really

      10. Maybe you should pick someone who has the same qualities as your mother. 😉 They’ll surely be able to handle you then! 🙂 Sleep well Charly… was nice getting to know you.

  11. Hey there Charlie – I see you have found my blog and decided to follow me. Welcome 🙂 I hope you’ve been able to catch up on some of that lost sleep! I’ll be having a bit of a poke around your place, checking out that wicked sense of humour you claim to have…

    1. I don’t claim to have I have…… at least for myself so that is enough.
      Glad you stopped by, and I will do my “cool stalking moves” on your blog, when time permits that is as you well know, so check me up from top to botton!!!
