Just to prove that they really existed.

AAAAAAAAAAH. We haven't even started the planning stage and it's already looming. At least I don't have many friends, so things are a easier for me.

I'm reading Don Quixote. I'm about 1/5 of the way through. He has just set free the prisoners being sent to the galley. I'm not sure about it - it's amusing, entertaining, insightful, but if it ends up being 800 more pages of exactly this, it may get old. I'm not hoping for it to pick up sometime soon, but I do want to see some point to the wanderings soon. How arrogant of me to demand so much of one of the finest pieces of literature in the West!

I feel like I contribute nothing to anything. We are right now working on justifying our existence.

We have $INTERDEPARTMENTAL Olympics tomorrow. What friggin' fun. Still, it essentially gives me an afternoon off. An afternoon not to have to justify my existence?

I should've grabbed a jacket today. I'm cold when outside in my shirt sleeves. I have to walk about a mile this evening after work.

I want things to be as they should be. Is that so hard?

I can't say i'm up on the back story but isn't that pretty much one of the struggles of life, to get things how they should be, and maybe figure out what that is anyway.

Except, well, the world isn't what it should be. I think the thing I was thinking of at that moment was that my job blows, I haven't changed it in 1.5 years, and last year when I tried to get a new job I gave up after a few months of fail.

I think pretty much through the course of time no one in existence has ever felt the world is as it should be.

A) At least you have a job.

B) Looking for new job can be draining but that doesn't mean you can't take a bit of a break and then reapply yourself to the task. "You can't win if you don't apply !"

C) Sometimes the greatest meaning is found in helping those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Maybe you might think of volunteering your time to help out for a cause that touches your heart and makes you come home and think thank God my life isn't that whacked out.

D) Be the change you want to see in small ways. Sure it won't really change the world but at least you will feel more empowered to make some kind of difference with what little time you have left on this big spinning globe we call home.  I do thinks like when I see people have pulled up other peoples potted plants in downtown Seattle and tossed them into the sidewalk I go and I take them and replant them back. I help old people get out of their seats on the bus. I sometimes feed the neighbors cats. When my friends do stupid as shit and ask what do you think I am some kind of moron I only answer yes 1/2 the time.
Oh fuck the ponies - fuck it all...
