It’s astounding how often we only want the person or thing that hurts us

This is kinda beautiful and awesome

Helps you transform your writing into something Hemingway would hate slightly less than normal. Hilarious if you’ve read any of his work.

So I don’t forget it:

When it comes to girls choosing guys:

Theory: Girls like confident guys.

Confidence is the conceptual variable.

Douchiness is the operational variable.

Yay statistics!

After watching The Thick of It and In The Loop, I definitely read this in Peter Capaldi’s voice. Way more awesome

I literally feel like I need to stop reading for a little while because nothing will compare.

Read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

If I could write as well as I wish I could, this would be the product. It is my new, favorite novel. I just speed-read it in about 5 hours. Up until now, I believed the only book that really encapsulated the human condition was The Brothers Karamazov. I was wrong.

Seriously, do yourself a favor and read it. There’s going to be a movie coming out next year and I’m sure it will also be good, but read the book. I know that, in the future, I will be reading this book again and again. 

WHEEE ADULTHOOD!!

         Growing up, adults lie to you all the time. Sometimes it’s to protect you. Sometimes it’s just easier. Looking back now, I realize that most of these lies came from fallibleness of my parents. As kids, we ask of the impossible and expect a legitimate answer. I look around and see parents as old as I am. I have to believe they have just as little idea of what the fuck is going on? I’m sorry little Timmy, but I have no goddamn clue why we’re here. Well, Annie, I still feel more like a child than an adult so I can’t really tell you what it’s like to be grown up. My driver’s license says I’m an adult, but I have no idea what I’m doing. I was more certain of my profession when I was eight (zoologist-thank you Steve Irwin, Jeff Corwin, and the Kratz Brothers) than I am now (something to do with economics? Or psychology? Sports management?). For the longest time, I had this self-sustaining illusion of knowledge and experience that came with adulthood. Now, the cracks are beginning to show in that logic and I’m left with an equally terrifying and reassuring truth: adults are just as clueless kids.

            Is there more quantifiable knowledge in my brain now than 10 years ago? Of course. Can I answer any existential question better than before? Nope and I’m far less certain of the answers I do give. With ignorance comes certitude. When I was a kid, I didn’t worry about God or why we’re here. The world was smaller then. The stars seemed like twinkling headlights, lighting the road ahead and I was special. I was destined for greatness and fame and fortune and every hope that kept me warm as I lay in bed. The path was simple. Get good grades school in high school so I could go to a good college so employers would beg me to work for them and I could swim in gold and money á la Uncle Scrooge.

            Now, the path is anything but simple. My current career path resembles a myopic man in San Franciscan fog travelling through a labyrinth. He knows that if he bumbles around aimlessly, eventually he will find his goal, but damn, some hedge cutters and a flashlight would be great right now. This is the best decade of my life. I am past teenage angst and middle school (thank God!). I am independent, healthy, and free to make some mistakes before settling down. Robert Frost has been making sporadic appearances in my mind. Periodically, throughout the days and weeks, a voice will chirp “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Frost had it easy. I don’t even know where to find the damn roads. Any direction is an option. I would love some painless dichotomy. Instead, I’m stuck in this clusterfuck. Luckily, any direction I take will put me somewhere different than before. I don’t need to consistently progress, I just have to move.
