fukyah, my first blog.


I have some things to say and none of it is worked out in my head (hey, I'm 22, of course it isn't) but I'm gonna spit the stuff out anyway to clear my mind. Why not, after all. I would normally call myself an optimist, but tonight I'm going to be a pessimist to try it on for size. Read at your own risk.

Here's the current thought process:

American life is far too centered around monthly payments. There'd probably be half as many suicides in this country if people could get a break in that department. I'd have to say that whenever somebody tries to spood-feed me the cliche "you have your whole life ahead of you" I find myself picturing myself writing checks more than I picture myself enjoying the company of others and that's just no good. Cell phone, taxes, insurance, rent, cable, internet, internet video games... ugh... enough already. When it's all said and done you're walking out of 7-11 holding a snickers bar and feeling like you've really accomplished something after having saved that much money. No good whatsoever. I think people in general need to save their money and use "the things God gave them" more often. This web site is a prime example of using those things but I'm talking about more than sex here. How many times this week have you had a rivoting conversation with somebody important? How many times this week have you listened to a song you love and tried to find real meaning in the words? And how many times this week have written in a blog?

To me it sometimes feels like life is far too built around rush-rush-rushing everywhere to get everything done. I hate waking up in the morning to greet nearly 10,000 worries in my head, each twice as unimportant as those the day before. If I can help it I'm not going to become a nervous wreck over things like those, even if that means being called cheap or primitive - I'm more interested in being called sane.

Was I just ranting or does anyone feel where I'm coming from here?

Hey Demon,

So good to hear that life is going that well for you. not!! Mate it's simple you don't have enough money to be enjoying life. sad but true. I spent 18-28 justifying why there were more important things in life than money. Around 30 I gave that shit up and realised that , actually , in this life , money is oxygen, you can try and be principaled about it and say "but money can't buy you happiness" or "money can't buy you love" but only poor people come up with that self justification bollocks.
Get some cash !!!
There's a big difference between being an optimist and a hopeless dreamer.
Give yourself a slap !!!

(all meant in the best "but my life is shit and I'm lost" way)
Hugh

Demon,
Man I can so feel where you are coming from. It would be nice to just be able to get away from it all (and still be living of course). And I am sooo tired of hearing " good things come to those who wait" what the fu(k ever. How long are we supposed to wait?

I never said I don't have cash

When I took philosophy I heard "an alarming statistic." It went something like "40% of grown adults don't have even $100 to spend on entertainment." Think about that... If that's the case I'm quite on top of things for my age. No debt yet - none.

I appreciate the comments from you folks. It's good to know that something I hammered out while sleep-deprived at 4am made sense to others.

Also, Dali - If something's important you can find the time, and you did just now, thanks.
