Personal Reflection

Would you risk your life to give strangers food?

“I am brave, but I am chicken sH_t,” sings Alanis Morissette. That is exactly how I feel. I am brave as long as I know that I will probably be safe in the end. 621 more words

it's so over: best angry break-up songs

Yes, I know. They say that anger is a terribly unhealthy emotion. Anger isn’t associated with classy ladies. Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. 792 more words

"who would've thought...it figures"

I’ve been telling myself since I was 18 that I was going to start a blog. I’m 25 now. This gives you an idea of how incredible my powers of procrastination are. 48 more words

THAT I WOULD BE GOOD

I spent four hours inside my bedroom yesterday afternoon practically doing nothing. Oh, a little bit of this and that (reading, writing) but most of the time I was just lying on the floor and doing reverse crunches. 78 more words

Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie

I’ve seen them kneel with baited breath for the ritual.I’ve watched this experience raise them to pseudo higher levels.I’ve watched them leave their families in pursuit of your Nirvana.I’ve seen them coming to line up from Switzerland and America.How long will this take, Baba?How long have we been sleeping?Do you see me hanging on to every word you say?How soon will I be holy?How much will this cost, guru?How much longer ’til you completely absolve me?I’ve seen them give their drugs up in place of makeshift altars.I’ve heard them chanting “kali-kali” frantically.I’ve heard them rotely repeat your teachings with elitism.I’ve seen them boasting robes and foreign sandalwood beads.How long will this take, Baba?How long have we been sleeping?Do you see me hanging on to every word you say?How soon will I be holy?How much will this cost, guru?How much longer ’til you completely absolve me?I’ve seen them overlooking God in their own essence.I’ve seen their upward glances in hopes of instant salvation.I’ve seen righteousness mixed without loving compassion.I’ve watched you smile as the students bow to kiss your feet.How long will this take, Baba?How long have we been sleeping?Do you see me hanging on to every word you say?How soon will I be holy?How much will this cost, guru?How much longer ’til you completely absolve me?Give me strength all knowing one.How long ’til enlightenment?How much longer ’til you completely absolve me?

DIARY

You Oughta Know, #941

Oh….my poor friend.  I stopped by to say hi to her yesterday, and she was listening to Carly Simon singing “You’re So Vain.”  I love the song, and of course, in my true fashion, I began to happily sing along.   187 more words
