Materialism

Lately I have been thinking about materialism, and what physical objects mean to me. One of my good friends is the least materialistic person I know, who thrives on minimalism and simplicity, and she just seems so happy! Didn’t Gandhi do that? Cleanse himself of earthly objects and learn to live life in a more […]

Song of the night

Intensity in ten cities – Chiodos I’m not the one that you want, I’ll only let you down. And I’m pretty sure that you’ve caught on. And you can say that ‘Oh, I’m just feeling sorry for my…’ I think it’s every time I walk into a room a silence so sudden that I seem […]

Bad and good

Yesterday was a really bad day. I had plans that I was really excited about, and it didn’t end up happening. It was a big blow to me, since it was a big deal in my mind. Then another plan fell through with someone else, and I basically felt completely alone. It’s like… Oh, don’t […]

It’s ridiculous how much I love the guy in these commercials

He is like, the stringiest, geekiest guy ever, and he is just hilarious. This one is my favourite. Hook, line, sinker. Done! Bahaha.

Food and nostalgia

Yesterday I was having a discussion about “poor man’s food”, and how what we ate as kids has changed compared to what we eat now. I’m sure you know what kind of food I mean, the inexpensive, low-grade food that was used to stretch the food budget as far as possible. When we were kids, […]
