What my priorities should be: -school -finding a job -getting in shape/eating well What they are: -finishing up sex and the city (for the third time) -taking banjo lessons -dying my hair purple -raising chickens
2 months ‘til 22. 3 months ‘til done with school. i don’t want to do anything real with my life right now. i want to work for a few months, travel, work for a few months, travel, etc. until i feel it time to find a real job. then i might be a little screwed over because of lack of experience in whatever industry… life figures itself out, i don’t need to worry.
I want to dedicate my life to scrobbling, travelling, eating, cuddling. That really sounds perfect.
What I want is someone with whom I can cuddle and scrobble.
it’s only about 530$ for a week-long trip to mexico city (airfare + hostel). i want to buy this now, but i’m planning for january and who knows where life will take me by then. i’m honestly thinking i can look for a nice part-time (or even full) at sbux or something before/after i finish school so i have some time to just…do whatever. i also don’t want to book a trip...

I told a few people at work today (read: everyone I held a conversation with) about the banjo situation and my upcoming banjo lessons. Lauren, the exec director, tells me she has a banjo at home I can have. Needs a bit of repairing, but A BANJO! for free! Talking is good. And cool people are good, too.
So, I just snatched up the last available appointment in the StoryCorps trailer while it’s in Chicago. I’m looking forward to it. I’m interviewing my mom and crying thinking about it. If you’re not familiar, StoryCorps records people’s conversations/memories, archives them, and shares them through their website and NPR. http://storycorps.org/about/
I want a banjo and a pet chick(en).
wakeywakey-tea-and-cakey: You know when you’re playing UNO and someone puts this card down And it’s like they just punched you straight in the face and you start to wonder if you could ever really trust them at all, if everything was just a game to them and the whole time they’ve just been waiting for their opportunity, for the perfect moment to destroy you.
Every time I go to work, I pass a shop with a sign in the window, “BANJO FOR SALE $200” and I think about buying it. Then I think I will never learn how to play it and will just have a banjo in my house for no reason. But banjos have always been entertaining to me so it would be a welcome addition to the home.
how do tears work? i’ve always wondered and have never done much research on the topic. how are they connected to emotions? how does laughter work? how does your body respond so quickly to its surroundings with these reactions? tears of anger/pain sometimes start up before you can even fully understand what you’re feeling. so, how does that work?
one day, do you think we’ll evolve into robots? that’s not to say the artificial intelligence we’re used to seeing in sci-fi movies…metal parts and all that. but, will we evolve to beings without emotions? or is that devolving? would it be better for us and the earth we inhabit if we were only mechanical problem solvers? what a weird feeling…to think of no feelings....
thinking about the size of the universe can make your head and heart want to cave in and make you want to puke out everything you’ve ever eaten in your life. but if you take it to one step before that point, it’s just super amazing and beautiful. we are all so small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things. humbling experiences and thoughts are nice because they make you realize...
