These past few days I’ve been thinking about what I think all working people think about at some point or another.
What’s the point of the endless cycle of work and weekends?
We all get up each morning, commute to a job we tolerate/hate, grab a drink at night and then blow off steam on the weekend. Wash, rinse, repeat.
I’ve been informed by multiple sources (since I’m not smart enough to come up with this stuff on my own) that there is no point. You do the aforementioned for shelter and food. For the lucky ones, your job can provide you with a half-point, but I think this still holds up.
It’s up to you to infuse your life with meaning. No one can do that for you. Not your parents, your job, your favorite band, your Playstation 3 or that new pair of seersucker Chucks you bought the other week.
It’s past time I hurried up and found some meaning in it all.
(I’ve got it! Drugs and empty sex! Instant, everlasting significance.)
Where you put your time and attention says a lot about who you are. It says a lot about you as a human being. You have some idea in your head of all the stuff that is high priority to you. All the stuff that really matters. If I sat down and asked you what’s really important to you - you would say ‘oh my family and my church group and I’m a deacon.’ But then I go and I look in your email box, newsfeeds and web browser… If I went and got all CSI on that, what would the last two weeks of your electronic life say about how it maps to the stuff that you claim is really important?Merlin Mann (via simko)

song i did my essay on
there are facts of life that we’re uncomfortable with, and we can refuse to deal with them — but that doesn’t change the fact that things are still the way they are.
thank you, now my essay is finished
