It's easier to complain
but there is beauty in the mundane
A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
~ D.H. Lawrence

"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"

"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
~ Seneca

"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
~ Daydream Nation

"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories-- if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
~ The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes

"The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road."
~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."
~ William Blake

Work thoughts, gym freebies
Friday, October 12, 2018
"Side Of The Road" by Big Black Delta.

I worked today, although since I usually have to leave early on Fridays to babysit, I don't have a static room anymore. Today I subbed in the 4-5 pre-K room. Lots of boys, and I always find myself wondering how many of them are going to grow up and break someone's heart. Oddly enough I don't have that thought about the girls, even though it's equally applicable. I feel some affection for them now, but also sadness because of the knowledge that their lives will get so much more complicated.

Also went to the gym today, which I usually don't do on Fridays anymore because... I dunno, I'm lazy now. Tired all the time, maybe. I took a five hour nap today so I guess I must have been exhausted? But after that I was good to work out. They had some freebies/samples at my gym, including spicy Skittles and some kind of Garnier hair mask. Pretty good stuff, actually. I tried out the hair mask when I showered tonight and it's a little overpowering in the scent department, but I like how my hair feels. The Skittles were interesting, not bad. Not really that spicy. I doubt I'd ever buy them, but they were fun to try.

I actually feel pretty good at the moment, which is maybe why this entry is just about random stuff I did and less about deep philosophical thoughts, haha.

Things I thought I wanted but which I maybe don't really want
Sunday, October 7, 2018
Recently I've developed this awful tendency to question my own consumerist indoctrination whenever I see something I think I'd like to buy.

Cute clothes? "Is this just me buying into the idea that clothing is inseparable from personal expression?"

Branded merchandise of something I enjoy (e.g. People Watching)? "How does having a shirt with these characters on it matter to my enjoyment of the source?"

3 CD box set of The Caretaker's Everywhere At The End of Time? "Why do I seem to believe that having this physical set would enhance my experience of the music?"

It's a good way to not spend any money, but it's also a good way to suck all the fun out of buying things. But then there's the question of why buying things is fun in the first place, and whether that's actually something worth valuing, or I've just been surrounded by this cultural attitude so long that I've never thought to question it, despite it actually being fairly weird. I'm not going to start going around and yelling "WAKE UP CONSUMERIST SHEEPLE" and knocking products out of anybody's hands, but it's something I'm thinking about in my own life. Not freaking out about it, and not making a shift towards material minimalism, but being more aware of how consumerist culture affects me, I guess.

A little belated
Monday, September 24, 2018
My birthday has come and gone. Not too much to speak of, except that my friend Matt surprised me at the train station in the morning with cupcakes that had little fondant budgies on them. I was catching an early train, so it was before 7am, and I knew he was going to come see me there, but I didn't know about the cupcakes. It was a really nice way to start off my day and I'm very appreciative of the effort he made.
