Looking At My Reflection, Hurt And Alone
Although I'm happy that I've gained the acceptance and trust, as well as repaired my friendship with Shine/Jordan and Ariel at long last, which is good for me...

Something new had happened that made me outraged, inside and out... all because someone rudely told me that I'm never happy.

While I realize that she's partly right, I wanted to rant on her and tell her off in the same way someone I could mention, does.  And I still do, but I'm afraid she may block me again.

And this is my last picture of my Day Out with Thomas event, as I didn't want to show all the pictures I took.

I hope you all enjoyed it!


FavoriteArtMan's Profile Picture
Jarrod Prieto
United States
I'm an artist. I am a fan of everything. I commemorate and honor those who died, I am an Olympic equestrian; meaning I once competed for the Olympics in Howard County. I won six different trophies, twelve ribbons, seven gold medals, two silver medals, and one bronze medal. I have poster awards and honors. I even have blessings from Pope John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI. I've drawn many artistic things, mostly by scratch, and I am also very creative.

But sometimes, I watch movies, play video games and listen to music. I like traveling (my mom calls that term "Itchy feet!), and I love to tell stories. Lastly, I am honest, truthful, willing to forgive.

Family tragedies

December 4th, 1998- My father was hit by a drunk driver on the 2nd of December, and he was pronounced dead at 11:45 on the 4th.

October 1999- We lost our first home.

November 1st, 1999- The person who killed my father was fined $350, which caused us to lose our first home.

December 2nd, 2001- My mother got a broken knee from a swinging 20-mile-an-hour church door.

May 30th, 2003, the day 'Finding Nemo' was in theaters, while riding my bicycle home from school, less than a mile from home, I was hit by a car. I was badly hurt. The bike was sluggish. With the front fork badly bent, there was no way it could be fixed. The next day, the homeowner closed the lease on the house, and we lost our second home.

July 19th, 2005- My mother ended up in a wheelchair, no thanks to some nitwitted doctor!

2006- We lost our 3rd home, and moved to Florida.

September 28th, 2007- We lost our 4th home, and moved down here in Hudson.

January 2008- While bicycling to a nearby bread store, to keep dry, because of incoming rain, I was hit by a second car. I wasn't seriously hurt, but after helping me up, the driver left. So it was a hit-and-run, and it resulted in me, limping home on my bicycle. Luckily, the bike wasn't destroyed this time.

July 26th, 2008- 20 days after I came home from Texas, after seeing my brother and sister, my grandfather passed away. He was 73 years old.

October 2008- We left our old home, and moved into a rent-to-own house in Lily Pad Court.

2009- Lost our home in Lily Pad Court, but even as the year started, the house still has not yet been sold.

Throughout all those tragedies, especially in my elementary, middle and high school, I've lost a truckload of at least 49 friends in my neighborhoods.

Hobbies & Interests

Long-distance bike riding, helping my mother around the house, since she cannot walk. I like doing some exercising, meeting new people, telling stories and jokes, converting 1:24 scale NASCAR race cars into Cars characters. I often enjoy making slideshows, making meals for dinner, cooking, making videos to put onto youtube, even making videos by video camera. I also like playing video games, online games, racing games, and much, much more!

Movies & TV Shows

The movies and TV shows I love the best are The Land Before Time (meaning the films and episodes), Thomas The Tank Engine, The Incredible Mr. Limpet, The Polar Express, all Pixar films, with the exception of AUp@, since I have no interest in it, nor does my mother. Anyway, I also enjoy watching the Pixar Shorts, 'Everybody Hates Chris', Disney Short films in the 30s to the 70s, Static Shock, TITANIC, and her sister, BRITTANIC, the LUSITANIA. I even enjoy movies of Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jr., Kight Rider, MacGyver, Spider-Man, meaning The Animated Series, the movies, and Spider-Man Unlimited. I also love both Charlotte=s Web movies, Buzz Lightyear Of Star Command, Transformers, meaning the films and Transformers Cybertron. My least favorites are Both Bambi movies, both movies of The Fox And The Hound, and Gladiator. My few favorite movies and TV shows are are Star Wars, NASCAR on Fox, AEmergency!@, starring Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe, Rain Man, Bambi, Dumbo, Disney's 'Fantasia' (especially the Rite of Spring, since it is my favorite), and >Fantasia 2000=, >Dinosaur=, and some science movies, even some from National Geographic and Nova. My all time favorite is >Hero Of The Rails=. And sad and heartbreaking though some of them may be, I even learn about movies of 9/11, such as World Trade Center, Flight 93, and Inside 9/11.


The music I enjoy listening to is some songs by Helmut Lotti, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman, Rascall Flatts, Brad Paisley, Gordon Lightfoot, and Bobby Darin. From the movies, my least favorite music is from Top Gun, Cars, Star Wars, Flight 93, TITANIC, Simple Plan, even music from >Fly Away Home=, Simon & Garfunkel, Don Mc Lean, Evanescence, Sheena Easton, Gladiator, and Final Fantasy VII. My few favorites musics are from Celtic Bagpipes, Hoobastank, World Trade Center, The Statler Brothers, Star Wars, Coldplay, Josh Groban, Russel Watson, ABBA, The Land Before Time, Johnny Cash (Casey Jones), Sweetbox, The Beu Sisters, and Mike Posts 'Macgyver' theme, the Knight Rider theme, and a few tracks from The Lion King II.

Books & Comics

The books I enjoy the most are about TITANIC, Joke Books, the LUSITANIA, The Complete Thomas the Tank Engine Collection, and The Polar Express. My upmost favorite books are The Land Before Time, Bambi, Ghost Liners, Spider-Man Comics, and whatever else captures my interest, and whatever else I come across. Or, for that matter, whatever I can get my hands on.

Childhood heroes

Since I have a computer as well, I also enjoy Sonic & Knuckles Collection, Monsters, Inc.: Bowling For Screams, Big Dirt Movers, and Chex (R) Quest, since that game was released in Chex cereal boxes in 1996. On Playstation 3, my favorite games are the Ridge Racer 7 demo, Burnout Paradise demo, Spider-Man: Friend Or Foe, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and whatever else amazes and interests me.

Famous People I've met

Dale Jarrett
The Original Star Trek cast
Helmut Lotti
Michael Crawford
Sarah Brightman
Patrick Stewart
Sir Derek Jacobi
John Paul II

I have done so many great arts throughout my life. I mean, I have drawn almost all of the characters from The Land Before Time, and I even drew some different dinosaurs. I have even drawn and colored some pictures of Bambi. The other arts that I drew and cut out were Charlotte from the 1973 movie 'Charlotte's Web', Charlotte's daughters from 'Charlotte's Web 2', and from at least four NASCAR coloring and activity books, I drew and cut out images of what Tony Stewart's #14, Jeff Gordon's #24, Jimmie Johnson's #48 and Earnhardt, Jr's #88 cars would look like in the Pixar movie 'Cars'.

Places I've been to, in my past

I have been to New York, to see and meet Sir Derek Jacobi after one of his plays. I have been to Baltimore, at least once or twice, to see the B&O Railroad Museum. I have even been to Washington D.C., often to go to Arlington Cemetery to see my father, and to have a picnic lunch at Fort McHenry. I=ve even been to Boston, Alexandria, Gettysburg, and the Vatican, at least two times. The reason why I went to Gettysburg, was because I was on a field trip, one day, and I wanted to see what the battlefield looked like today, after the civil war. And just recently, in 2008, I went to Texas and Oklahoma to see my older brother and sister. My sisters kids were hard to get along with, but I managed to set them straight. I haven=t had the chance to meet my niece that year, but I hope to do so one day, since I plan to go back to Texas and Oklahoma one day.

Those are all the places I=ve been to around the 90s, and in 2008.

Places I wish I could go to, and why

The first place I wish I could go to is Japan, because ever since I heard that that was where Hiro's Island was, I've been curious about it ever since. I mean, I may have already learned about it in school, for history class, but what I am more deeply interested in, is the island itself, as it is today. I mean, according to Hiro, there are mountains and snow and sea. What other mountains are there, besides Mt. Fuji? How often does it snow? Anyway, what I am even more interested in is, ever since Hiro mentioned it, the railways. I mean, according to him, there are lots of railways. The train I am most interested in riding on, is the D51 498, since that's the train Hiro is based on.

The second place I wish I could go to is New York City, because not only have I been there once, even before 9/11, though I was annoyed with it, until 2006, I thought about visiting Ground Zero, to see where the World Trade Center once stood. I have even thought about laying a Holy Wreath on Ground Zero, too.

The third place I wish I could go to is Shanksville, Pennsylvania, because I feel like seeing the site where Flight 93 crashed.

There are so many other places I wish I could go to, but I never, ever had the chance.

Whom I honored after their death, and why

The first person I had honored after his death was George Carlin, because I enjoyed him not only as Mr. Conductor in Shining Time Station, and as well as one of the best Thomas narrators throughout season 1-4, but I never heard of his death, until August of 2008. When he first died, I was mad for sever al months about it. In fact I was upset about it, and I made a decision to never again watch Thomas The Tank Engine, but I couldn't help myself. Therefore, on youtube, I honored him with the song 'My Immortal' by Evanscence, and I made a Thomas & Friends video to go with it.

The second person I had honored after his death was Thomas & Friends director David Mitton, because not only have I never heard of him at all, until I looked him up on I mean, I have never heard of his death until the same day I found out about George Carlin's death. When David first died, I was even madder about it. And so, on youtube, I honored both George and David with the song 'How Could This Happen To Me' by Simple Plan, and I made another Thomas & Friends video to go with it.

The third event that I had honored after it occurred, was all the victims of the Columbine High School Massacre, because I never heard of it, or actually seen it, until I first saw the Static Shock episode 'Jimmy', where, according to the description, a bullied youth brings a gun to school. I mean, after I first saw 'Jimmy', I never thought school violence would be that aggressive. Apparently I thought wrong. Then, when my mother showed me a video of the Columbine High School Massacre, by seeing it mostly from Eric Harris' and Dylan Klebold's point of view, I learned how those two "left out" and bullied youths committed the worst high school massacre in American history. On the video, I saw them kill 12 students, one teacher, injured 23 others, and then turned their guns on themselves. I was glad my mother had taken me out of public school, seven years after that, because since I was a bullied youth in high school as well, I almost wanted to avenge Eric and Dylan, and commit another high school massacre of my own, but I'm glad I didn't. Therefore, since I've never heard of the Columbine Massacre until 2009, I honored all the shooting victims with the song 'Amazing Grace' by the Celtic Bagpipes, and I made a video about it, too. I chose that song, because not only was it heard in Star Trek IV: The Wrath Of Khan, but it's what most Scottish and American Bagpipers play at funerals to honor some famous people that died.

Hello, everyone.

If you saw my recent deviation about someone I can't mention anymore, because of what the description says, and if you also saw my status post that said I needed to be left alone and left in peace, since I didn't feel like talking to anyone... 

I've made my mind up, and I thought about it while I was taking a shower, 45 minutes ago.

Come this summer, I'm going to look around my hometown for a therapist, so that I can have therapy sessions to change my ways much more, or, once he's moved into his new home, I'm going to ask my pastor if I can come over to the church in my town, to talk about any problems I had in the past, just like I once did before, before that didn't last very long.

What makes me say that is that, for the most part, I have at long last come to confession at my church, and I had a lot to confess for.  I even recorded my entire confession with my watch, if anyone wants to hear it.  I know it's wrong to voice your confessions in public, as that would be breaking the seal of the confessional, but I will share it with anyone who wants to hear it.

I even want to share it with Kaitlyn, also known as TigerPrincessKaitlyn, or ChillibeanSaddleTank , because I want to repair the damage to my friendship with her, make things right and better again, and start a new custom.

At the same time, while my penance has been completed, as well as my act of contrition, and while I feel outwardly apologetic and reformed, part of what I done in the past, and over the last several weeks, is still inside me.
I should also say that in seeing what I've started to become, and when I saw Ariel's comment on my deviation about said person... 

I realized that it's getting out of control, and I can't tell you how sorry I am, even though Skype, my soon-to-be married daughter-in-law.

So, in heading :iconburntuakrisp:'s advice from our private discussion...

I'm going to do what I should have done, five years ago, if not just a full year ago... 
and no, I'm not going to turn myself in to my local police station, or the authorities, because that would be ridiculous, unwise, crazy, or perhaps not the best idea.

Instead, I'm going to seek out having therapy to steer away from my current feelings, so that I can change my ways, as well as become more mature inside, to better myself than I did before.

And if I do see a therapist, or my pastor to talk about my problems, then I can say that with his help, and some other experiences that's lead me into feeling the way I am, as well as seeing what I've become, and what I've done that's getting out of control... 

I do want to try and control my emotions, and make them better, instead of worse.

And maybe afterwards, or while I'm at it, I may even think about taking Anger Management Classes for my negativity.

And if I do, I'm happy to say that with the help of that class, as well as those who supported me, and some other experiences I could mention... 

I do want to try and control my anger, more than anything else.
