Self-loathing is not a fucking character-builder. It doesn’t make you stronger. It doesn’t make you better. It’s just an ever-deepening, creepy-ass trap; a trap that is a huge moneymaker for corporations that do not have and never will have good intentions. You’re not disgusting. You’re not freakish. You’re not ugly. And you’re never going to be perfect. And holy shit, that is so okay.

Let me make something clear:

Enjoying things you like is NOT WASTING YOUR LIFE.  Enjoying things is the exact opposite of wasting your life.  I don’t care if what you like to do is stare at digital clocks or ceiling fans.  Immersing yourself in your interests cannot be measured in value.

Forcing yourself to become a blank slate is torture.  0 out of 10 stars, would not recommend.

Fuck yeah.

Worldly adventure

Seems I’m going through 2 major changes at once while being broke as heck: moving out of my current space without affordable alternative AND leaving my current job due to a change in temp companies. Fun stuff,if you’re feeling slightly psychotic,that is…

I’m going to try to turn it into an adventure,you know? To turn it into something positive.I’ve got my girlfriend providing emotional support atleast,and an occasional bed when I’m in the area ;) …Its a great time to work on my art,get away from the computer a little bit,and attempt to enjoy things from a different perspective.

I DO have some income possibilities,including ebay,and possibly etsy,if my ideas work out,while I’m between jobs,we’ll see how that works out,and I’m still technically employed through my staffing agency,its just a matter of time.

Idk…I just think it’ll be kinda great to do things differently a while until I’ve built up the cash to afford another place in the area I’ve come to love…Hopefully before winter :/ ….In the meantime,I’m still throwing out resumes left & right and seeing what happens. Maybe I’ll come up with something within my artsy-crafty stuff that sells awesome that can support me on part time pay…I could live with that.

it’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice and i for one certainly didn’t sign up for that

this is seriously all i fucking think about

You are good at something, stop lying to yourself. You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.

Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes. Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science.


There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.”
