“In this world of news, I’ve found nothing new I’ve found nothing pure Maybe I’m just idealistic to assume that truth Could be fact and form That love could be a verb Maybe I’m just a little misinformed … Let the wars begin, let my strength wear thin Let my fingers crack, let my world fall apart Train the monkeys on my back to fight Let it start...
[RX --> (yields) Variable X]=
So you know, I’ve realized something. This whole “coming out of the closet” Agnostic, while a quiet coming out, has yielded interesting reactions from the very few I’ve told. One of the reasons (while not the solely overriding reason) for my being so quiet about my religious turmoil was because I was afraid of how I would be seen by my closest friends. I was afraid...

I got back on Facebook. I texted some people. I impressed my impressible professor. I called my mama (adoptive). Told her everything. I love that I can’t phase her. Saw an old friend; received a therapeutic hug from said old friend. Failed a quiz; left class early. Wasted too much gas and drove too fast. Spent too much money. Had a home-cooked dinner with my family. Leaving to...

I went for an hour long midnight walk around my neighborhood. The night was so cold I had to bring a jacket, and I couldn’t feel my nose when I walked back inside. It was wonderful. I wonder if it’s really so dangerous walking around a dark neighborhood so late at night, but it truly doesn’t phase me. When I go for walks at night, all my miserable discussions going on inside...

Kitchen Talks: "Life Gets Better"
Dad+me+any kitchen we happen to find ourselves in after midnight= Some of the best, most memorable conversations I’ve ever had with someone in my life. Tonight I told him everything I’ve been struggling with for over a year now. After scaring him for months of being depressed and moping around, I finally talked to him and it wasn’t bad at all. He told me about his own search...
Moronic memes like “Mars will be as big as the moon this month!” and “36 hours of darkness in the US next month!” make me sad for humanity. This is why I can only take large amounts of people in small doses.

The Death Penalty. I am against it. _____ Does it help aid the overcrowded prisons? No Is it less expensive to just execute a prisoner than to care for them in prison, even for a life sentence? No _____ And the executions themselves…How morbid! A group of supporters and protestors crowded around to watch a human being die. That just doesn’t seem right to me. I’d argue...
Any damn thing but Sue!
My daddy left home when I was three And he didn’t leave much to ma and me Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze. Now, I don’t blame him cause he run and hid But the meanest thing that he ever did Was before he left, he went and named me “Sue.” Well, he must o’ thought that is quite a joke And it got a lot of laughs from a’ lots of folk, It seems I...

President Obama, I was never for demonizing you, but I was never for lionizing you, either. Be this as it may, this picture of you just gave you a cool 17 points in my cool book. You’re welcome. I leave you with this, kind sir: Never underestimate the power of the Dark Side, Obama-Kenobi. May the force be with you, O Learned Jedi Master.
Fickle; Respite for Now; Hello again, Tumblr.
It has not been a happy time in my life. Sometimes I wonder if I am a masochist. But other times I think that all of this is really the culmination of the collision consisting of: a coming-of-age process I had coming, life changes I couldn’t have possibly seen coming, and the unearthing of an entirely new portion of myself that I had little control over. Change. I feel like it frakking...
Holy Sh!t, Batman
I just heard some very big news about an hour ago that is going to change the rest of my life, starting very soon. It was not bad news, but I am still afraid, because I cannot keep up with all of this right now. Nothing is stopping. Everything just keeps whirling around and getting bigger, hovering above me, like angry storm clouds that are resting quietly, but ready to drown me at any moment. I...

JG on Name Calling and Poor Political Discourse
“I really believe that this is a result of not doing a good job of imagining what it’s like to be other people. The people who disagree with you aren’t evil. They aren’t. They don’t want to destroy America. They are neither terrorists, nor facists. They are complicated people with complicated motives, who contain multitudes, just like you do.”
Every few months, an owl perches somewhere near my bedroom window and begins to hoot into the pre-dawn morning. He’s just come back. I wish I could catch a glimpse of him, but I prefer listening rather and risking frightening him away. Such a haunting, yet comforting sound.
"The Emo Speaketh" Random Thought on an Emotional...
I am closer now than I ever have been of escaping. I have figured out that last string, the small thread that pulls my heartstrings toward what I do not wish to profess. Now that I have found it, I can cut it. Just reach out—and cut it. How painful the journey and how frightful the future. No matter where the turn is made, I will be cutting far more than a mere thread of annoyance. Far...
Something I've Noticed
“An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated.” —Madalyn Murray O’Hair

Numero Tres, 9.7 (or, the longest fml ever)
Today, [[marks the day that 3 unrelated people have told me in the last 30 days that I should consider professional counseling or therapy or whatever the crap you call it. Am I really that screwed over from my past? 2 of the people who advised counseling told me shortly after that doing so would be one of the most painful, terrifying things I’ve undergone, but it would ultimately be...
If I got a tattoo, which I don’t think I ever will, BUT if i did It would be this: A tattoo referencing an uncommonly known acronym, referencing something even more uncommonly known—in helvetica. Can it get any more amazing? No, my friend. But possibly somewhere less noticeable, because most people end up regretting their tattoos. Like under my right ring finger. Is that the...
