Sick & Tired
Sick & Tired
I'm getting so sick of politics. I'm a big-time political junkie, and I'm just tired of it. I'd like to say I don't know why - just saturation; I get too involved in things...but that's not it.
Politics just isn't real, especially not today. Real people don't engage in politics, at least not regularly (your average joe doesn't vote every day), and politicians are anything but normal people, whether it's Democrats blaming President Bush for everything from Hurricane Katrina to killer bees or Republicans blaming Democrats of being seditious for not supporting the war. It's sickening, it's fake, and right now, it's all I've got.
When you really get down to it, I think this is why I'm on AdultFriendFinder looking for someone: a woman is real. She's a real person living a real life, going through real situations. I can have a real conversation with her, and hopefully experience her 'realness' in the most intimate of ways.
I just got out of 5 long, greuling years of college...and college isn't real, either. It's an entirely formatted, contrived learning experience. Very useful, especially in today's society, but also very fake. I long for a warm physical relationship because there is nothing more real than being with someone, knowing that your two bodies are about to be joined in the closest of embraces, a shared experience that can never be exactly duplicated, but doesn't have to be, because new intimacy can be just as good as old, and can potentially be even better.
It just started raining. I'm strangely tempted to stand out in the rain until I'm completely soaked, just because I'm in such a weird mood tonight...but on the other hand, it's almost 1AM, and I have to work in the morning, so I think I'm going to end up listening to that little voice in the back of my head that's saying "hey stupid! If you don't get to bed, you'll regret it in the morning!"
