supposed to fire my imagination

Reasons I used to have for not writing: nothing to write about; no time. Reason I now have for not writing:



So tired.

If late,

Get fired.

Why bother?

Why the pain?

Just go home.

Do it again.

Don’t be so gloomy! You probably already live in a beautiful land, you’ve just gotten too lazy to see it. While working and paying off debts should tire your mind and your body, you should never let it tire your spirit–chin up, things are never as bad as they seem.

What’s with that sign anyway? It’s like the city of Manhattan is conpiring to demotivate you as you walk through time square. Like “Oh, you were happy when you walked in here? Well life sucks! So there!” I seriously never understood why that sign is there, but at least it makes me laugh…

Shivver me timbers

What does that even mean?

I also am working hard to pay off my debt and dreaming of moving to the beautiful land of Hawaii. And I’m unmotivated to do the many personal projects I want to work on. We’ll get through it, though! Hopefully my debt will be gone by my 28th birthday this July, and I will be in Hawaii by my 30th birthday. That’s the plan, but then we all know: the best laid plans……

Good luck!

oh, hah! I guess you are not from NY then. I figured you were…

There is a part of the Times Square subway station that has that poem, line by line, attatched to the rafters. You have to read it as you walk through. It’s very demotivating.

“you probably already live in a beautiful land”

No, sadly he lives in Houston.

I recently read about that sign in A Girl’s Guide to Hunting and Fishing, so I was in fact referring to it, even though I have never seen it (and am a bit surprised it’s still there).

I’ve lived in Houston–it’s not nearly as bad as you make it out to be. Besides, if I make the best out of Missouri of all places, you can make something out of Houston.

I’m sure part of Brooklyn can be considered a beautiful land where everybody is happy. That’s the part I want to find.

Maybe we can find it together, Shaun. And we can move there. And we can get so sick of each other a knife fight ensues.

Yes, Stellar, because places are certainly the same for everybody.

Comment by Shaun — 8 Dec 2003 @ 8:12 am

Thought that one might get the boot.

Yeah, it happens.

You are neat.

people choose to live their lives in a variety of places. some of those places are better than others, for a number of reasons, though the reasons can often be contradictory. some people choose a variety of locations, some choose only a few. often locations are suggested to people. the more variety that exists in these locations the better the worldview, and, arguably, the more healthy a person one is. looking around, i see people surviving in as little as two places. it sickens me. i’ve known those who survive in only one, however. and i’ve known those who’ve tried to not survive at all.

Houston is ugly like Detroit. It is also fat and polluted.

It’s better than Dallas, though. Not so many tit jobs.

Until you’ve grown up in IdaHELL I see no good reason for you to complain. Suck it up.

if you’re looking for a beautiful land, try Canada. That’s just to the North of you.
