Silly Snippits from Sunny Leedsworth
It's been hot, I have the mosquito bites to prove it. Life is meaningful, but that can be difficult to prove. I bought a car. I might be a teacher. I'll probably go back to school. |
What does Solomon mean when he says everything is vanity? Because that's a really big statement. It could strip the practicality right out of life. I mean, potentially. I think I've always kind of seen "doing things" and "thinking things" as fairly unrelated parts of reality. I guess they aren't, but I still think it's more of a Venn diagram situation - there's some overlap, but for the most part, not really. When I don't get any time to myself I get cranky, I am kind of cranky right now. Not too sure how I would handle children. I clean up after them at restaurants - they sure do make a big mess of things. But isn't that kind of the point? I'm starting to think that it has almost nothing to do with whether you want them or not. Most people will have them, and they will have to deal with it, and some will do much better than others. Modernity has kind of given us a "maybe" option with which to answer the question. Speaking of Venn diagrams, I'd say that the circle of people who answer the question "do you think you'll have kids?" with "I dunno, maybe," and the circle of people who are total burnouts has some good overlap. I don't want to be a burnout. But working is for chumps.
Summertime. I work a lot, and I work about as hard as I can, but usually it's more out of a sense that I have to than any kind of work ethic. This has the potential to create a pretty toxic cocktail of a life. Right now things are actually pretty great. But still, I'm usually anxious. Definitely going to grad school.

I feel old, I would imagine that this feeling continues for quite a while.
