I'm selling something on Ebay for the first time and every day I'm questioning if I'm doing this right. Should I up the price, lower the price, Post more pictures, leave friendly messages for people, or hide, blah blah blah. Why do I have to question everything?
I bought a lot of stuff today including the first album I bought when I was in fourth grade (for the fourth time). Beck- "Odelay" featuring Beck's second most famous song, "Where's it At?". My favorite track though is "Jackass" and maybe these rap songs too.
Ive been thinking about how the human mind must both accept and deny death to function with any happiness in life.
Once a person has accepted that they will meet an end, (as all things in our little biosphere must), life becomes much richer to me.
However a bit of healthy denial as to what goes on after death also seems to serve a purpose in driving us with hope. Jung himself said of eldery patients that he treated:Well you see, I have treated many old people and it is quite interesting to watch what the unconscious is doing with the fact that it is apparantly facing a complete end. It...disregards it. Life behaves as if it were going on, and so I think it is better for old people to live on, to look forward to the next day, as if he had to spend centuries, and then he lives properly.
Of course, it is quite obvious that we are all going to die and this is the sad finale of everything; but nevertheless, there is something in us that doesn't believe it, apparantly.
Just watched "Stardust Memories" spoilers ahead:
I wrote a free write, and Im pretty ecstatic about this film. I will definitely post in the movie thread. But for now I'll just post my free write. I feel I should get some sleep its 1:00am, not tired from the coffee but still >>
“In the end, all there is… is music” totally what I thought
It’s gotten to the point where all I can say is “I really liked it!. It was so awesome” blah blah. Almost anyways, I mean, at least in these free writes. But I can normally glean some stuff after and during watching. I mean. Woody Allen. You know what youre talking about sir! So many… I mean SO MANY great lines. Loved the bit about the ending of his movie, how they were gonna change it, and they wanted it all happy go lucky for the easter watchers. Jesus, Woody knew his vision. He wanted to make an honest film, like fellini. He did. Those aliens too! Awesome man awesome. They were all “We like your funny movies” they said a few things I forget, how crazy he was sticking around that basket case lady. I got kind of confused. I guess there were 3 loves. I thought there were only two.. maybe Im mistaken. Either way I loved it. I need more Woody Allen films. I mean… jesus, better than Play it again, even though that one was da bomb too… both about film and stuff. He was more collected in Stardust though… which is odd for Allen. But serious. Did I like it more than 8 ½. Maybe maybe not, I lover both though, whatever, very profound. VERY. What else was it. Oh yeah more Im Not there. WHO THE HELL IS JACK ROLLINGS. That’s what I wanna know. Loved the Aviator song.. was that Stardust? I think so. Louis. Wow you play beautiful music sir. Wish I knew you. Maybe I did haha. But serious. I love the song “What a Wonderful World” but… I think you outdid yourself… You play beautifully. And I don’t think people give you the credit you deserve… I don’t think they did, and I don’t think they ever will. I am sorry Louis… Truly. And I think Woody is too. He’s sorry he’s stuck as a comedian. He’s seriously funny, but I love the truth he can provide. Awesome.
im wondering how i can get my husband to realize on his own that when he says things in a mean way, that it bothers me and causes much more drama and stress for me than saying them in a nice way which wouldnt take much effort on his part. Oh and also to stop saying things and then changing his mind at the last second. Sometimes it just makes me a wreck.
Just a brief stream of consciousness writing here, compared to some I've written on other forums. I throw out commas and general organization when I write these.
I haven't hung out with any of my non-neighbor friends all week. I've only received 3 texts in the last 5 days. I feel a bit lonely. I'll probably clean my room tomorrow finally, after looking at it for a month now. A ton of my stuff is in my basement from my dorm room, and I haven't been wearing many different clothes because I haven't put my clothes back in my dresser yet because my dresser is blocked by crap. I have a lot of pillows in my room. My dorm room was so much bigger than my room here, especially considering the loft bed there. Gahhh, I hope I get a job soon, even though I'll be a burden to whoever has to take me to work. I wish I would have been a normal teen and gotten my license as soon as I could have, as well as a job. If I'd done those things, I'd probably already have a job and possibly a car. Having a car means more socializing. I don't know if I'll make it to a memorial thing for a classmate/friend who committed suicide just under a year ago on the night before graduation because I don't have a ride and I don't really feel like asking for one. If I knew how the buses here worked, I'd consider that, but I don't want to figure things out, and I don't want to have my brother come with me or anything. Hmmph. Maybe someone will ask if I'm going though and see if I need a ride. I can only hope. Otherwise, I must motivate myself to clean tomorrow. One of the first things I clean should be my bookshelf so I have space for my stereo again, which will make the rest of the cleaning more bearable. Maybe I'll take the little neighbor kids on the walk they've been wanting to go on tomorrow. They've been bugging me about it for weeks, and I feel bad because I haven't taken them, but I haven't been making up excuses. They probably think I just don't want to take them, but I've been waiting for when we'll have enough time to go and enjoy it instead of powerwalking about. I'll follow through though.
