Q:have you done any of the things on your bucket list yet?
Yup. I did a few before I made a tumblr: cinnamon challenge and karate kick through a dry wall.
When they speak of a dystopian future, I imagine this:
Everywhere I go and everything I do requires me to show government issued ID. I am routinely searched, scanned, x-ray’ed and sniffed by both dogs and machines. All the stores are owned by large corporate chains. The only food available is very expensive and unhealthy. I have nowhere to stay. I wish I could so much as find a chair. And when I need to sleep, I have to lie down in public on a dirty floor.
Yes, I can imagine a bleak future. And it is an airport.
A flicker of color breaks through the darkness of your eye
A shadow of emotion cast onto your too dry pillow
Do you know what you should feel?
It is pain that the rest of us have dealt
They are cards thrown harshly into the wind
Fallen at our forlorn feet
You have not looked down or paused a second
Your indifferent boots tear up dark, blood-soaked earth
And above resolute eyes are always ahead
But it is breaking shattering slowly
Ticking timers Hellhounds in hot pursuit
You will feel it as we all have
And those eyes so stoic
will soften and sadden
Until you can only reach down and forever carry
that crimson card in your carpet bag
The 24 Tirthakantras of Jainism
Tirthakantras, are Jain teachers who have attained Nirvana, or Moksha. It is said that Lord Mahavir was the 24th, and the last to achieve Nirvana.
These little guys aren’t very original. If I attained nirvana, I’d strike a different pose than the 20 dudes before me. Like the pharaoh dance or something
My understanding of calculus has just dropped down to 0.
I can’t make any progress on college essays.
I don’t have enough energy to actually be angsty or make intelligent complaints.
So I’m gonna go to bed at 9.
I go to the bathroom 60% of the time because I’m bored. 20% of the time it’s because I want to scout it out for later. 10% of the time it’s because I am about to pee all over the ground.
