So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Don't Be Yourself
Tuesday. 7.8.08 11:26 pm
I read an interesting article by PJ O'Rourke. I love PJ O'Rourke. Ever since I was just a lass reading "Holidays in Hell" about what it's like to take a trip to Europe, and "Parliament of Whores", a charming account of the US Congress. In this article he was addressing the cultural obsession with "being yourself". If you were to listen to Them ("Who are They?" my dad would ask, "What are Their phone numbers?") you would believe that your truest purpose in life is to discover Yourself... your innermost, truest self, and futhermore, to express this inner self at all times.

M. O'Rourke disagrees. He thinks that it is quite possible that we could look very deep into our truest selves and find someone frivolous, selfish, and careless. He says that we shouldn't try to be ourselves... we should be constantly trying to be better than we are.

I agree.

My truest self enjoys eating chocolate bars, and if I were to be true to myself, I would express myself by eating them all the time. But there is some virtue in self restraint. I would venture that there is a LOT of virtue in self restraint.

Your truest self might be someone who tells it like it is, no matter the consequences. But a better version of yourself might temper your truest self with handy characteristics like tact.

Is that selling out?

Well I'd better go off to bed, so I can be on time to work tomorrow. My truest self is sometimes late, but my ideal self is unfailingly punctual.

Finally I have my future planned out
Thursday. 7.3.08 2:28 am
Clearly, the thing I have been missing all this time is an impromptu visit to the east asian wilderness where an old master on the brink of retirement or death decides to take me as his last student and teaches me the ways of the martial arts, preferably in montage format, until I am totally ripped and a major BAMF.

I'm not picky about the martial art, though I am partial to tae kwon do since I spent so many years studying it under the inimitable Master Kang. Or perhaps I could study Hwarang-do, which according to wikipedia is "The way of the flowering manhood".


Any training in the control of The Force would naturally be appreciated.

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear

Me: Oh, look, I got my bill for school and they didn't register any of my financial aid.

Me, reading: Graduate Student Fee: -- bucks
Health Services Fee: --- bucks
Health Insurance Fee: ---- bucks
Graduate Tuition: ----- bucks!!

My sister: Sounds like one of those Mastercard commercials, and then it would go,

Having a degree you can't use?
