FAQ part I [Dec. 29th, 2004|04:26 pm]
This is some spin-off on a meme that starts out something like, 'Gee, isn't it insanely weird how we don't really know each other through livejournal?' So I was asked recently, today to be specific:

"Do you work for any certain company at all doing the graphic desing [sic] thing?"

Fortunately, someone was so kind as to provide their own answer to the question so I don't have to:

What, he thinks you sit on the street corner with a computer while you
design charts and graphs? For free? For passersby to throw change into your
coffee cup? "Please, mister, I made a pretty chart, please give me some
money so I can eat tonight." "Here you go, little girl, now give me that
chart full of statistical information, I'd like to hang it on the wall in my
living room. I am mesmerized by all the numbers and colors."

Okay, really now.

It's time to get serious about things - serious about life.

I can look very serious when I try hard.

Life: Here! Take this, it's yours.

Life: No, really. It's yours.

Cynical person #1: That's ok. Thank you anyway. It's probably broken.

/weeks later
/enter wonderful thing once again

Cynical person #1: My eyes, do they deceive?

Life: What have I been trying to tell you?

Cynical person #1: Hmmmm...

Life: Go for it! You can have this.

Cynical person #1: Fine.
Cynical person #1: Wait a second! Why is this 2 inches away from my grasp?

Life: What?

Cynical person #1: You tricked me, motherfucker!

Life: Grab it, you idiot!

Cynical person #1: can't..reach.. No, wait, I've got it...
Cynical person #1: Okay, nevermind. Never-fucking-mind, you sick sadistic fuck.

Life: I don't know what your deal is, I'm just going about my business.

Cynical person #1: Stalemate*

*original version contained 'Indian giver' in lieu thereof. Now if it weren't for the vulgarity, my screenplay would procure a PG-rated film..

I'm not a big fan of cliches (unless I'm exploiting them) but I've always adhered to the belief

'If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.'

A true cynic I am.

Well, that takes care of that [Dec. 21st, 2004|02:23 pm]
I almost hit a pedestrian on my lunch break who had determined that it would be a brilliant idea to lunge in front of my vehicle. After that, a cadillac making an unprotected left turn nearly careened into my driver's side, causing me to swerve and the dumb bitch just kept turning, oblivious to all other cars.

Christ, day be over all ready please, or at the very least, may all of these people be shot.

[Current Mood |Optimistic! Well, almost maybe]

At the very least I can say my life is better now than it was at this time a year ago. Not by a longshot, but I guess you've got to start somewhere.

Insomnia and memory loss [Dec. 19th, 2004|09:39 pm]
[Current Mood |wtf]

I found an element of a project I worked on three semesters into my major in college.

It totally blows me away that I don't remember doing parts of it.

I found myself perusing it with fascination as though I were seeing all my own work for the very first time.

Don't look at me like that. I didn't make it.

Decoded feedback [Dec. 1st, 2004|02:03 pm]
I consider myself a person with few regrets. I almost said no regrets, and then I realized that it would be madness to claim that I never feel taken hostage by the past.

I've thought lately that I wish a certain person or persons would've met me at a different point in time. I don't think I can consider that a regret because many events that you have no control over shape the person that you are. Sometimes those events aren't pleasant or don't seem beneficial on any level. You then don't like the end result, which is the person you are, or the ways you've been shaped. Don't expect to see justice served because this is what you've got. This is all there is. Maybe I'm a defeatist, maybe I've forgone the idea of the fruits of one's labor, or that which is worth waging a war for. And maybe that's why I think that some people believe they can control more than they actually can. I think the modern image of an individual who is fully empowered and can take control and eventually alter any situation is a lie. It gives people a false sense of power, and detains their ability to live and let live, to go with the flow, accept that which is, and wait for their turn to come around again.

Maybe it is because I've known passion, and now I'm tired.
