"Whether you like it or not, history is on our side.
We’ll strangle your cities with traffic.
We will draw you into fighting useless wars.
We’ll send in developers to ravage your land, and replace your individual farms with corporations.
We will force your citizens into the slavery of credit card debt. We’ll send gangsters into your schools to sell your children drugs.
We’ll replace each of your meals with empty junk food. One way or another, you will see who comes out on top."


- NIKITA KHRUSHCHEV 1956

I think i'd pay to hear Obama or Mccain actually answer any of the questions Kucinich asked.

I know no one really reads my livejournal, but over the past few weeks (and over several spirited arguments) I have come to the disappointing realization that many of my peers do not vote. In fact, they are almost proud of this fact. Some just don’t care (which is heartbreaking, and further proof that our generation is the most apathetic one to date). Some are actually against the process. The justification? “My vote doesn’t count.” “It doesn’t matter if I vote, the system is way bigger than me.” There were also various conspiracy theories, and some claims of anarchist mentalities. I get that. The system is often disappointing and sometimes corrupt. And I can offer no guarantee that your vote WILL count. But if there is even a 5% chance, if there is even a .05% chance, that it will count, shouldn’t you vote anyway? Because you know people who oppose gay marriage and abortion and are super into killing innocent people in the Middle East definitely think their votes count. And it looks like so far, they have.

i have this weird sinking feeling in my chest and its making it a little difficult to breathe. i'm really not sure what is bringing this feeling, i had an amazing night and i met a really cute boy. i'm just going to keep telling myself its the change of seasons. and everyones feeling a little displaced because of it.

i've been thinking a lot about things just things in general, like what we think about and what we really think about, the inside verses the outside...the truth is i'm taking too many theory classes and i'm on the very verge of an existential crisis or some kind of an illumination and if i could just keep going crazy or just keep breathing, i'd get somewhere, but i always seem to stop myself right before the edge comes into sight.


whatever. my s-cat pt-82 came in today. be way jealous.

i need to get out of western mass. again.

everyone, at some point while growing up, goes through some shit that they will spend most of their grown up life trying to forget. i've done a real good job of it. then tonight when i least expected it, BAM! someone not only remembers me, remembers nights and stories that i've tried so hard to forget, but they also tell me exactly what i'd felt all along. it's too hard to explain. it's like the dust you swept under the rug chasing you down and telling you that you did the right thing all along. FUCK i cannot explain it and all the people who remember those shitty stories are long gone in my life now. it's all long gone. and yet right here in my head tonight.

my plans are working. i don't feel like total shit every day. and i'm finishing the books i meant to read, and i'm writing again, and i feel like my deck is finally being shuffled in the right order.

sharing my emotions is getting less and less interesting to me. but, i must say, i kind of believe every now and again that everything is going to be okay. i really think that most of the people i have met and continue to surround myself with have the capability to take care of themselves and figure shit out. i really think everyone will be okay. i think, even in the valley resting between "happy" and "sad" that everything will work itself out, and as long as you get your shit together you'll be able to handle all the ups and downs. and i'm not too worried about any of that anymore. we might get bummed out, we might get horribly depressed even, but at this point, we're all going to be okay. and even in just my hoping so, something counts, right?

2007 was spent discovering my love for iced carmel cappuccinos. my new years resolution is to start reading again. and not buy 5 books at a time and start them all, and never pick them up again. it's all about following through.


i'm in western mass now, now that christmas is over it's time to hang out! i'm still phoneless, and it sucks real bad. my internet barely works. but my home phone works. you can also myspace or facebook me i guess. i'm pretty hard to get a hold of these days.


oh hey:
my goddamn birthday is saturday!!!!!!!





livejournal? wtf.

i love fall. this isn't even fall yet though, it's just good weather. but it's so good. have you also noticed that when the weather changes people start feeling funny, like nostalgic? it seems like everyone's thinking a lot about the past. maybe now would be a good time to call up old friends.
