Well, I made it. A post every day for a whole week. It was hard work, but here we are... the final sin. The sin ScoMan is most guilty of.
How well do you know your cardinal sins? Do you already know which sin it is? Have you looked it up on Wikipedia since yesterday to try and get a "sneak peek" of what's coming up? (it serves my ego great joy to think that people care enough about my blog to research upcoming posts.)
Speaking of serving my ego great joy, my ego is served not only by the thought of people researching my posts, but also by the thought of people remembering something I wrote MOTHS ago. The 24th of March this year to be exact.. when I had to list seven things I loved. Remember? Do you remember when I said.. these words...
6 - I love pizza. I could eat that all day and never feel full.
5 - I love the sharemarket. It's interesting to watch what sets people into a panic, what brings back their confidence and the different reports from different companies and what they do to the share price.
4 - I love music. I remember having to play the guitar for a high school assignment and the teacher saying I have a gift for it, but I never took it up. And then we had some other test thing a few years later and the teacher said I had an ear for music and would find playing an instrument easy and wanted me in the band, but I never did it. I couldn't be bothered.
3 - As strange as it sounds, I love spinning into Matt. It's interesting to have a whole new thought process, a whole new outlook and to feel that sort of emotion to its fullest.
In almost every list Pride (Latin, superbia), or hubris, is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and indeed the ultimate source from which the others arise. It is identified as a desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to acknowledge the good work of others, and excessive love of self (especially holding self out of proper position toward God). Dante's definition was "love of self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbor."
Yes ScoFans, my deadliest sin is PRIDE.
For starters, when I told my brother I was going to do a video for YouTube of that song (which is "Head Over Heels" by Australian comedians Lano & Woodley.. and I never did do that video. The one above is the only copy) he said "That song should be your anthem. It's you word for word", so when even your own family is against you what hope do you have?
Not only that but all week- ALL WEEK -when I've been supposed to be telling you about the evil things I've done, I've been sure to mention to you all how awesome I am as well. In fact, I don't think a post goes by without me making sure you all realise how awesome I am.
I am incredibly stubborn. I will never admit I was wrong. I very rarely reach out to people because.. you guessed it, I'm awesome, and I think they should reach out to me. And even if they do, it's not very often I welcome them with open arms.
So there you have it, my seven sins in one week. Now you all know me a little better. You're aware of my shortcomings and my failings.
I also just took a quiz on Facebook.. "What job will you have in the afterlife?" and my result.. receptionist. Why am I tell you this? Because I think it caps off the theme of the week nicely..
You are both good and bad- stuck in between hell and heaven. You have an important job though, when someone dies you must decide where they go after life!
Forgive me ScoFans for I have sinned. I love me so very.. VERY much.
I guess there's no harm in dishing of my Facebook link now as well.. http://www.facebook.com/thisisScoMan
