I’m getting a new tattoo when I get home. Something small, cheap, and with a ton of meaning. I wanted to start on my chest/shoulder/sleeve ideas but I still haven’t come up with a design I completely love yet. A lot of good ideas, just nothing definite yet. This, however, is definite. I just hope I have enough time (it’s easy, but not something I want to get in Florida).
do something disney. but small. you HAVE to. and I dare you to tell me how it wouldnt mean something big to you
“During “Seinfeld“‘s nine-year lifespan, Cosmo Kramer has had twenty-seven girlfriends. Elaine Marie Bennes has fallen in and out of love fifty times. George Louis Costanza has loved and lost sixty-two women, and topping the list with a whopping seventy-three girfreinds is none other than Jerome Seinfeld!”—thank you wikipedia.
i wish the internet and cell phones and the whole fiber optic world could take a break. just dissapear for awhile.
things would get done. things that matter would get done.
if you needed to talk to me, you’d call my house number. if i wasnt there, you’d leave a message. ya know, how things used to work.
now everything seems way to easy. no more half assed text messages which seem nearly obligatory to respond to (or else the other person will think your ignoring them and blah blah blah). if you really, really wanted to talk to someone you would make it a priority to reach them. and shit would get done.
if you needed to talk to me, you could do it. you’d have my house number. it works.
cell phones are convenient, but maybe a little too convenient. it’s taken the want and need out of relationships. things are too casual.
my social landscape is changing so unbelievably fast. ive never seen things change so quickly over such a short amount of time. or maybe that’s because i’m a teenager.
the irony of all this is that i’m publishing this on the internet. if it were not for the internet maybe, just maybe some crazy thing woulda happened where i talked about this to another person!! woah. thatd be a crazy idea. human interaction.
i probably will talk about this with other people though. it’s just crazy how things change. 40 years ago when my father was my age i know he never had anything remotely close to the internet and a cell phone. he had a newspaper and friends. we need some more of that these days.
edit: i’m no better than anyone else though. im a victim of this too, being so fortunate to be living in this digital world.
“The work of the painter, the poet or the musician, like the myths and symbols of the savage, ought to be seen by us, if not as a superior form of knowledge, at least as the most fundamental and the only one really common to us all; scientific thought is merely the sharp point — more penetrating because it has been whetted on the stone of fact, but at the cost of some loss of substance — and its effectiveness is to be explained by its power to pierce sufficiently deeply for the main body of the tool to follow the head.”—Claude Lévi-Strauss (1908-2009): Tristes Tropiques (via fuckyeahphilosophy)
I went to sleep at around 9pm last night, about 5 hours ealier than I normally do on a Tuesday. I slept sooo incredibily well. I first woke up at 4:55 feeling well rested, then dozed for around a half hour. Ive been up since 5:30 now and feel great, wide awake. I never sleep well anymore and never get to sleep that early.
But being that today is Wednesday I have nothing to do this morning except sit or sleep in my ambulance building until we have a call. I’ve been laying on this couch for awhile now trying to get some more (unnessesary) sleep and hoping for a call.
I kinda want some more sleep. I don’t want to be tired tonight (though that’s nothing a large coffee can’t handle).
Tonight, as fate would have it, I am going to game 6 of the WORLD SERIES!!!! I can’t even fucking believe this.
I was lucky enough to go to two of the ALCS games in which the yankees won both games (one via an extra inning walk off and one to clinch the ALCS and send them into the world series). Both games were the best game I had ever been to.
And tonight can blow them both out of the water. I can’t fucking wait.
My seats shouldn’t be that bad (and nothing to complain about all things considered). Right field bleachers, either row 5 or 16ish. Only thing is the freakin mohegan sun sports club blocks my view of left field from where I’ll be sitting. There are TVs to compinsate though.
Tonight will be amazing.
Andy Pettitte to clinch the world series at home? I can’t ask for more.
Fate would also have it that my class tonight was cancelled. So even before I knew I was going to the game I knew I’d be able to watch.
