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

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.

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.

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. :)
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
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?
I watched a documentary on Karl Marx yesterday and while I didn't necessarily agree with his purported ideas, he left me inspired.
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.
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.

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

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.
