“If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.” -John Stuart Mill

(1) When cleaning up and moving, dust or wear a mask…
(2) Don’t stay up for 45 hours straight, including at least 2 hours in-transit
(3) All meals are mandatory, even if you can’t see straight, eat.
Failure to follow these simple steps… results in..
Things… Big events… Little events.. One liners, even.. Haunt me, weeks, months, even years later… Even if I wasn’t wrong. and much more if I was.
I catch myself thinking about them, when I’m not doing anything else, or just laying down and thinking. I try to put them to rest, and let things go, but when it comes [...]
If you had the preceeding two songs in your dreams, would you worry? 😉 (Particularly, since the latter of the two, (but first since the blog reverses them…(aka Judas Priest) was really loud in an empty art studio…)
Why do people not look at themselves before throwing hatred at others?
Its easy to see your own problems in other people, harder to admit you have those issues yourself.
And particularly, easy to attack people who will, of course, believe your venom blindly because you know, they think little of themselves.
Must make you feel better about you [...]
No long post about the right answer here. I’ve encountered two different answers and neither qualify as particularly nice or friendly. I don’t think it really can be done and be nice about it.
(1) Just ignore them like they aren’t there.
(2) Come up with a lame-sounding rationale, (it’s X’s house, not yours (even [...]
The post that used to be in this space, was removed, because it made no sense to anybody but me.
Though, for what its worth, the post itself was based on feeling left out of a friend’s visit, when that isn’t the case. Communication issues suck.

Sometimes a needed action becomes very evident in front of you. That the words of others while nice and semi-warm and not hurtful, are actually, just safe. Safe words can be misleading words, they try to be nice and thoughtful of your feelings by avoiding hurting you. When in reality, they’re not protecting you from anything, except the [...]
Serious title, isn’t it? Its not meant to be dramtic though, only truthful. I spend alot of my time alone, now more than before. Alone has more meanings than you’d think on the surface. You can be alone in a room with somebody else. Its one of the hardest things to handle too. (but not The Hardest.) To realize you’re in a ro [...]
I never really thought about the Blogs and Friends section alone being symbolic of change. Though, now I’ve thought about it, as tonight, I remove a guy who I’d been kinda friends with for the past few months. Friendships don’t work out too well when the “friend” is pretty much so self-centered and isolationist t [...]
“I don’t know” isn’t a good answer when you ask somebody for constructive criticism (or just praise) on a creation.
It doesn’t help that I only really function with some sort of feedback and in the absense of it, I just want to quit. :-/
I have a hard time getting the ideas in my head, onto paper, or even better, [...]
Ever noticed just how hard it is to actually reach a person? Even with all these gadgets and gizmos we carry around supposedly to make ourselves more reachable. So let’s see now you can be unavialable via more ways..
E-Mail (if you’re lucky, you get a reply, maybe within a week. You could write a letter and wait just as fast)
IM ( [...]
Dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, The men and women of the military fighting overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to anyone suffering around the world. You’re not alone.
Not much has been going on in my world, or so it feels.. but so much has gone on around me, that I want to say something about here. Let’s see.. in my life, the biggest event relate to fun things like hardware death (in the server that runs this website.) First it was its power supply (the fan to be exact), which has been replaced, and [...]
Sometimes, I think I get so caught up in the bs of life, that I forget the simple things in life, like looking up at the night sky, and just being amazed by it. A couple of weeks ago, I got a chance to play with a telescope in person for the first time in my life, which was fun. It was an Orion Spaceprobe 130mm, which a friend of mine just go [...]
I don’t blog much, as a few people have noticed. In fact, the last post here was so old that it actually rolled off the frontpage and left it blank when somebody trackbacked it and it was refreshed, doh.
I tend to be a quiet person, part because I tend to keep alot of stuff about my life private, perhaps needlessly, and sometimes I don& [...]
Well, I suppose I’ve been gone for awhile from blogging and really being active online.
I haven’t had much to say, but I hope to be changing that soon.
Sometimes, its the simple things that are the hardest… Being wrong ranks up there at the top. I’m not perfect. I’m human, was born that way and can’t really help it. I try to do the best I can, particularly when people expect alot of me. I try not to let people down whenever possible, unless its simply unavoidable.
I don’t think I’ve been doing all that well lately, though you’d probably not be able to tell by looking at me. I seem pretty normal on the outside, just a little more detached than normal..
Well, today I can’t think straight, and if I try to force it I just get tired and wanna go back to sleep. This isn’t particularly good.
