Seriously. I feel so unhappy with everything. I hate it. I’m gonna go to the dr to get meds again. I hate where I am in life, I hate that I haven’t traveled overseas in forever. I hate that I don’t do anything meaningful. I hate that I can’t enjoy anything that J likes, even if it’s something I like too. Just lots of hate.
I saw this quote from Hillary Clinton on Humans of NY, and it’s everything.
“I was taking a law school admissions test in a big classroom at Harvard. My friend and I were some of the only women in the room. I was feeling nervous. I was a senior in college. I wasn’t sure how well I’d do. And while we’re waiting for the exam to start, a group of men began to yell things like: ‘You don’t need to be here.’ And ‘There’s plenty else you can do.’ It turned into a real ‘pile on.’ One of them even said: ‘If you take my spot, I’ll get drafted, and I’ll go to Vietnam, and I’ll die.’ And they weren’t kidding around. It was intense. It got very personal. But I couldn’t respond. I couldn’t afford to get distracted because I didn’t want to mess up the test. So I just kept looking down, hoping that the proctor would walk in the room. I know that I can be perceived as aloof or cold or unemotional. But I had to learn as a young woman to control my emotions. And that’s a hard path to walk. Because you need to protect yourself, you need to keep steady, but at the same time you don’t want to seem ‘walled off.’ And sometimes I think I come across more in the ‘walled off’ arena. And if I create that perception, then I take responsibility. I don’t view myself as cold or unemotional. And neither do my friends. And neither does my family. But if that sometimes is the perception I create, then I can’t blame people for thinking that.”
currently reading on my phone “Life” by Keith Richards. i had to stop because I needed to record this passage:
“Mick and I had a totally identical taste in music. We never needed to question or explain. It was all unsaid. We’d hear something, we’d both look at each other at once. Everything was to do with sound. We’d hear a record and go, That’s wrong. That’s faking. That’s real. It was either that’s the shit or that isn’t the shit, no matter what kind of music you were talking about. I really liked some pop music if it was the shit. But there was a definite line of what the shit was and what wasn’t the shit. Very strict.”
and that is how i feel about music.
currently reading in real book form, “Just Kids” by Patti Smith. I guess it’s a few weeks of music related autobios haha.
lol simpsons. lisa to marge about her learning how to use the internet “you’re like christopher columbus, you discovered something millions of people already knew about” hahahahahaha
“God is interested in truth, and only in truth. And that’s why God is more interested in Rock & Roll music than Gospel… Many gospel musicians can’t write about what’s going on in their life, beacuse it’s not allowed ..If you can’t write about what’s really going on in the world and your life, because it’s all happy-clappy… Is God interested in that? I mean, ‘Please, don’t patronize Me! I want to go the Nine-Inch-Nails gig, they’re talking the truth!
i have to repost this from because it perfectly states why i don’t date
