Everybody should dance!

I'm happy but my head hurts like anything.

Wondering how someone can be so detached is like looking in the mirror.

Visas

I'm filling up the visa form. Slowly. In stages. I'm 3/4 done. It's taken me two attempts. The same as it did to get my first passport.

For someone who loves traveling, I absolutely hate the process.

:)

I've decided.
Next year, I'm going to be happy. Sunny places and sunny people.
Yey!
Three things made me exceedingly happy today.
1) The concept of the pump
2) The fact that the internet exists
3) The quick response to the answer to the following question:
A monk starts at 6AM at the bottom of the mountain and climbing at a random page and resting randomly, he reaches the summit at 6PM. The following morning, he starts descent, along the same path, at 6AM and reaches the base at 6PM. Prove that there was a time on both days, when he was at the exact same spot on the mountain, regardless of how fast or slow he walked. Prove that it is inevitable.

A fool and his money are soon parted.

I've slipped into an addictive sort of lifestyle that's terribly unhealthy. The worst part, like all addictions; I'm enjoying it.
I want to crochet, watch house, study French, learn that French song, sort out production and marketing for Boho Chic- an interesting project for me, read- fiction and non.
Why is this unhealthy? An 81/2 hour work day (not counting traveling), six days a week, doesn't give me enough time to do it all. Sleep compromise, naturally follows. If sleep is compromised, I don't wake up to exercise, no exercise, no sun, I don't meet people. I'm tired all the time and my body hurts, my bones are stiff.

I told my father today, I was going to die an early death.

He called me a hypochondriac.

Take your socks off

I've caught myself wondering if life is like a series of Sylvia Plath moments. Not happy. Neither unhappy. A perfect shade of dissatisfied. Things are about 99% right. That 1% like a grain of sand in your sock.

Being absolutely right about something, doesn't mean a thing if you put it across wrong.

There's always some kind of relief with the ending of a relationship.

Apathy Kills

Knowing someone just like you is liberating but sad at the same time.

Are people really entitled to their views?

Part 1
I'm trying to open myself to the idea of being unethical.
While I don't think I'd ever actually be that way, I'm exploring redefining the definition.

1) Who decides what's right and wrong?
A) You, obviously. (or for the those that can't think for themselves, your priest or religious leader)

2) On what basis do you decide?
a) What's best for you? b) What's best for the greatest number? c) What's best for the underdog?

There's no such thing. You make it up as you go along. :)

 Part 2
Yesterday I watched 12 years a slave. A difficult movie to watch for me. The atrocities leave me outraged.
A few things from the movie stuck.

- A large enough people thought that slavery was alright.
- There were enough who believed otherwise.

 To more good people


Part 3
I was thinking about this.
- The Pharaohs had their slaves
- The Feudal lords had their serfs
- The large corporations have us

Am I a slave? Do I mind? Have the corporations got the balance right? What about the Pharaohs and the Feudal lords? 

Part 4
I watched a documentary on Karl Marx yesterday and while I didn't necessarily agree with his purported ideas, he left me inspired.
  
Part 5
In the Mahabharatha, as Draupadi was being stripped, blame was accorded 3 ways and with different weightage. 50% blame on the offender, 25% on the accomplice and 25% on the one who stands by and does nothing.


Part6
So far, there has only been one ideology I've come across that is so encompassing, succinct and ironic at the same time; it fits everything.

I'm going through a period of apathy. The only thing that can save me is my books.

If we have chosen the position in life in which we can most of all work for mankind, no burdens can bow us down, because they are sacrifices for the benefit of all; then we shall experience no petty, limited, selfish joy, but our happiness will belong to millions, our deeds will live on quietly but perpetually at work, and over our ashes will be shed the hot tears of noble people.

- Karl Marx

Under Pressure

















How much outrage this faced. But I can't get over how brilliant it is :)

On another note, there's a movie. Mona Lisa smile. In it, this girl who is full of potential chooses to be a wife and mother over an education and career.

And finally, a happy man eats when he wants, sleeps when he wants... you get the drift
I wonder why, given their nature, they would agree to living in a space half the size of what they were accustomed to.
For the cut. That's why.

This one guy, with pride stated that he could cut off any friendship if he wanted to; just like that. What a special guy.

And this other guy similarly seemed to think he was something extraordinary because he seemed just about capable of pulling off basic manners.
