500

500th post and I don’t even care. I’m cool like that.

I need a new job really bad. The one I have sucks and it’s starting to effect my sleep cycle. I just want to work at a local bookstore or café, please?

Graffiti Park in Austin Tx. Awesome street art.

Kinesis and Stasis

Life is a balance between keeping up with the world and staying who you are.

Kinesis- movement, motion.

Staying synched with the movement of the environment you’re in and moving into the change it presents is just how we have to live now-a-days. Back in the day, pioneers could live their lives free of the outside world: they could grow or craft whatever they needed. Life was, not easy but, simple. Now we have new technology and political correctness coming out every month. We have to keep up or be shunned by society.

Stasis- a period or state of inactivity or equilibrium.

All throughout middle school up until mid-adulthood, people will tell you, “Stay yourself” and, “Never change.” It’s funny, because to survive you have to adapt, but you should always remember where your roots lay. Never lose yourself to modern culture, always keep the rear-view mirror in check, but don’t dwell there. Don’t live your life in the past but remember your experiences there, to keep from making the same mistakes. If you conform to every trend that comes down the pipe, you’re no longer a person. You’re a tool being used by corporate America.

This is what life consists of.

If you can balance these two things then you have it all figured out.

Symmetry is what it’s all about.

*sigh*

I feel like putting an ad out in the local paper to look for new friends.
Moving after you graduate is like being the new kid at school, but no one really wants to talk to you because you could be an axe murdering rapist.
I’m just looking for cool people I can go to coffee shops with and study.
If I try talking to people they automatically assume I’m hitting on them or just creepy.
It doesn’t help that I go to a community college and almost no one in my classes are even close to my age, and if they are they’re preppy or drug dealers.
Meh, hopefully the new job will have some interesting individuals.

I guess I’ve just got tumblr for now.

Hey

If you’re out there, let me know. Send me an Ask or something. I could use someone to talk to.

Life as of Late

Things are going pretty good. I’ve moved, started school, and am slowly discovering a wonderfully exciting city. I’m hoping for inspiration to strike me like lightning here. There is so much going on around me, it’s hard to just sit down and put the pen to paper.
We went to a comedy session at a local coffee bar tonight. It was nice.
I love the vibe this city puts off. I feel like the people are very accepting, but not trying to invest in your privacy. It’s just a refreshing atmosphere.
I miss things about home, but I’m not overly “homesick”. I know my family misses me, and I miss them too, but I think overall they are just happy I’m happy and safe where I’m at.
Although traffic and overpopulation have been stressing me out, I’m just happy to have what I have. Supporting friends are what get me through the day.
Well, I hope to be writing more in the next couple of days, and I hope you guys will fire some feedback and questions my way.
Have a goodnight, and keep being you!

Confession #1

I’ve always really wanted a surprise party. Which sucks because you can’t ask people to throw you a surprise party, because then you obviously know to expect a surprise party. I don’t know, I mean, you see parties like that on tv and movies and they never seem to go according to plan but they always work out in the end…. Just seems like it would be really cool.
