Today I spent the evening/night having dinner with my two cousins, one of whom is back from being stationed in Alaska as part of the Air Force, but will only be here for about another two weeks before he has to head back. We hung out, explored Convoy, and ate to our hearts content. It was a joyous and fun-filled time, but now I look back at it and feel nothing but sadness. After my cousin leaves again for the Air Force, I won’t see him again until 2016, around May. And my other cousin is older, and works full-time while being a hardcore gym fanatic, which is great for him, but makes for a difficult time planning hangouts. With seemingly everyone leaving, I’ve been clinging to these moments with my family, but it’s hard to ignore that this too has a timer on it. I just feel so alone and sad all the time, waiting for January to come so I can finally put my time to use. This awkward transition period is horrible, cause while I’m working and doing my best to keep myself occupied, I can just never lose the feeling that I’m doing nothing, and that everyone is off doing great things, while I’m still here at home, trying to put my life back together.
"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin
This man was a pure genius.
The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.
so tired, and so lonely
Life is rough
It’s the early morning and I’m somewhere on College Avenue, with little to no sleep, and the impending doom of work only a few hours away. I’ve been driving aimlessly on the freeway for a while now, and I don’t really have a specific place in mind. Maybe I’ll hit up a Denny’s somewhere, considering it’s one of the few places I know that is open at the moment. There’s also a nice little diner I know that’s open 24 hours, though it’s a bit far from where I am now. I’m not entirely sure where I’ll go. All I do know is that I just want to not be here. To not be in this situation. To not be stuck here, watching as all my friends leave me. To not be able to start school until January, and to not be left here feeling like nothing good will come out of it all. Because at the moment, it’s so hard to remain positive. To think that if I keep working, I can still salvage what little hope I have left and really turn it into something worthwhile. It just seems like the world goes out of it’s way to mock everything I do, and now I’m left in quite a slump. And I want out.
Sometimes I think the world is just mocking me
tbh if u really think that iphone users are elitists ask ANY nerd why they prefer android n they’ll go on and on for hours, insulting the phone, steve jobs, tim cook, their entire families, everyone that works for apple, the schools they all attended, and their mothers’ lasagna recipes
Super psyched on this quiver that Eye Symmetry made me with so much love.
