The Perks of Being Single?

I just went to the trouble of checking what day February 14th 2013 falls on, hoping it would be a Friday so that I could celebrate how single I am. It was sad to discover it would be on a Thursday… 😦

Travelling in circles.

Life has been travelling in circles for the past couple of weeks. I go to school, I try to look pretty, I make sure that I’m smiling, then I come home, put on my sad face, take off my jeans, grab a baggy t-shirt and sit in front of my computer until my eyes water. Occasionally someone walks in so I have to communicate. Communicating: it feels like I’m so detached and miles apart from the person that’s speaking to me. I can see their lips move, and I can hear them, but I’m not really listening, because I don’t really want to. After a series of yeses and noes they’ll leave and I’ll resume my thoughtful gaze into the world of the internet. Then other times you’ll have some homework to do, like writing an essay that you really don’t want to write, or solving equations for math. So when your parents walk in you pretend to write so they think you’re working, but really all you’re doing is typing this bullshit. They’ll never know because they never understand what it’s like to be in your head. I swear something’s going on, something’s changed and I don’t know what it is.  I can’t recognize it. I can’t recognize me anymore. I look into my reflection and I see this girl, who resembles who I was, but within her lies a girl she doesn’t even know.

Upside down and inside out

At the edge of the world there’s a place waiting to be conquered,
By souls of the walking dead,
By humming birds shot dead.
The moon shines bright, and the trees hang from the sky.
Twisted loops and crystal looks, all a puzzle to be pieced together.
Strung together you’ll see it’s all a sham.
Keep them apart, when it looks its best,
This world waiting to be conquered.

This is not an apology

Sorry for the lack of posts this week!
It’s been so busy, I haven’t been able to take a breath.
I have an essay due tomorrow which I haven’t even began – yay!
It looks like this week is going to be just as tough…

I’ll be back with more as soon as possible! 🙂

Song Of The Week:

Yet another Sunday, yet another song.
This was on the radio in the car today, and I realized how much I love this song.
Nina Simone just has this magic in her voice, and she makes it all sound so easy.
A song for any day to make you feel good (see what I did there?)

Perspective

If you tilt your head to the right,
You might just see the light;
Because not all things are in black and white.

Song Of The Week:

Hurt, originally by the Nine Inch Nails, but very famously covered by Johnny Cash, has been the most played on my iPod recently.
It might have something to do with the fact that I only recently put it on my iPod but ho-hum.
It’s really a great cover – and I think it might even be more famous than the original. Either way kudos to Mr. Cash! (:

Tamagotchi Nostalgia

I recently downloaded a Tamagotchi app onto my android phone.
I was browsing through the app store when I saw it, and reminisced back to the good old days when I was younger, and carried my Tamagotchi around with me everywhere. It was my most prized electronic and only electronic possession! I remember that it became so popular at a certain stage that suddenly all of the girls in my class had one and they had to ban them in school. So everyday when I left for school, I left my tamagotchi with my mum, and taught her how to take care of it. I even remember crying when it died the first time round! So now, I have this app on my phone that keeps reminding me of all this. Occasionally when I get bored, I check out what Tim is up to (Tim being my Tamagotchi’s name) and it’s kind of oddly nostalgic.

Note to self: buy a Tamagotchi for your future kid – coolest toy ever.

Weird habits.

Lately, I have noticed that I am incapable of doing any kind of creative writing on the computer…
I don’t know why this is because when I first started making notes of these kinds of things it was always on some kind of an electronic device, but ever since this summer things have changed.
I find it impossible to be creative. Maybe it’s the light from my laptop?
Somehow, when I pick up my favourite pen and a simple piece of lined paper my pen starts to flow but as soon as there’s a screen between my mind and my words it’s like I loose all my ability to write; as though all the ideas just get drained out of me.

Weird habits, weird habits.

Who Am I?

My assignment for philosophy is to write an essay and choose which perspective I am.

I have to choose whether I am Descartes, Locke, Berkeley, AJ Ayer or simply a naive realist.
I’ve come to realize that this is definitely not as easy as it sounds…
Not to mention how much this class has added to me. I mean, to think that I spent most of my time being a naive realist when here I am, unable to choose which philosopher I agree most with…
