i find myself astounded by what the general population entertains. i also don’t quite know whether it is my duty to interject their comfort and frank ignorance or whether i should stifle my opinion. i know i have no control over what someone believes and i would be wise not to attempt to convince anyone of anything. but i know that part of creating a better world is policing oneself; one’s thoughts and behaviors and inclinations are ultimately within the realm of one’s own control. i know that a desire to do and be better has to be organic or it means nothing at all, especially it’s in the name of vanity. and i know that i can’t force that organic epiphany onto anyone, regardless of how urgently i believe someone could use a swift kick in the ass. this paralysis keeps me sheltered away from what i perceive to be the trivial and almost vapid interpersonal encounters that construct a monolithic facade in the face of impending and ubiquitous social, political, and existential quandaries. still, i can’t help but feel a sense of responsibility for the plain ugly things i hear/read/see and fail to address.
i think the most regrettable part of life in a postmodern society is the incongruities between what we need, what we know, and what we do about it.

Artistic boys and nerdy boys are the best kind because they’re usually pretty sweet/in tune with their emotions and they like cool stuff. Date artistic/nerdy boys.
my whole life, i’ve had a recurring motif in my dreams: i can’t run no matter how hard i try. i read about that having associations with self-doubt and fear, and ever since i’ve had that on my mind. i realize how frequently i doubt myself or operate with apprehension. what am i so afraid of? how do i confront latent fears?
