Why More Is Less →
jingc: Public broadcasting, like education, is presaged on giving you something you didn’t know you wanted.

taylorfuller: So last night I went to the movies and saw I love you Man. It was a great movie, but so not the point of this blog… While there I saw this kid who I thought was really good looking.

But anyways, I found myself looking at him a lot, finding...
bitchville: If I turn my lights off for this hour, it will not be to save the earth, it will be to save me money. These attempts are quite futile in the fact that there are millions of people that won’t change. The earth will still head on a downward spiral. Resources will run out, car companies will continue to postpone the sales of electric cars, the ice will still be melting. Realize that...

Coping vs. Savoring →
jingc: Whereas coping well means dealing successfully with problems and setbacks, savoring—glorying in what goes right—is an equally crucial emotional competence. “If all you’re doing is trying to get by, trying to avoid the bad, you’re missing half of life.” so totally true, dealing with how to not cope and savour more!

why do i always put so much faith in people????? it’s not like it was something that mattered alot, but i guess i hold everyone to my standards of not letting lose the tongue at every opportunity, and maybe in some twisted way he was trying to help…or maybe he was just trying to show off and now i’m forgiving him for being a selfish little brat. yes, i do have to take...

the always stop when you on top notion confused me for a long time, if things are going so well and you’ve had glory and attained the status of Godlikeness, it must be really hard to grasp the concept of ending. when your confidence burts past the realm of truth and ventures into the crazy part of your soul that starts thinking that everything is going to be better because it always has....

The computer as a burden
marco: Tiff and I are going on a week-long cruise for our honeymoon in 9 days. People keep telling me, “It will be so nice to be completely offline, unreachable, and disconnected.” Then they relate a story about how they went on vacation or something and had no cellular reception and no computer, and it was awesome. This seems to be a prevalent feeling. To most people, the computer is an...
i just felt the silence…it was like a wave washing over me, i didn’t even notice how loud it was until all of a sudden it was quiet and i could hear myself think it amazed me. is this how we live everyday? with all this noise that it becomes so hard to hear? i feel like peace has just descended upon me and that everything is at my fingertips. it reminds me of beauty and how timeless...
i’m in love with this dream i have recurringly, i see him from across the room and our eyes meet and for that second it seems as if the world finally made sense, that all the waiting had come to an end and the burning fire could begin to quench the watershed that had been my mind. a flirty smile here, a “what’s your name?” there, and then just as quickly as i found him, it...

there was a topic i wanted to broach yesterday, but the moment i thought it was slightly before drifting off to sleep, the patience to register the topic was nill and the hope to remember it still today was at its max.
