I had a dream last night that I had just touched down in Athens en route to a glamorous Hellenic vacation, complete with all that entails. It was so vivid, it was one of those dreams where I woke up thinking I had woken up there, in Greece somewhere, ready for beautiful weather and beaches and wine and endless food. So you can imagine the disappointment when it sunk in after about 2 minutes that it was my couch in Medford I’d woken up on.
But then, I remembered that our softball championship is tomorrow and this would’ve been terrible timing for a vacation anyway, because I’m practical about these things. Relief swept over me.
Life’s about the small victories.
You go from being a shy person with crushes that never go anywhere, to a slightly less shy person that has crushes that blow up in your face, to a even less shy person that “doesn’t get too wrapped up in one person!” and gets used repeatedly, to the same kind of person that goes and dates and literally stops giving a shit, to the kind of person that stops giving a shit about everything.
Everything happens for a reason. God bless.

Missed you tumblr, some really strong debate here on the issues.
No matter how much of a cold-hearted bastard I become, this monologue (and really this entire movie) will always get to me. Farewell, Mr. Williams.
Lately, I’ve been thinking of writing a big Generational Thoughtpiece on My Generation, The Millennials. It’ll be a sober, thought-out self-analysis of my peers and I. First, I’ll start with a blistering take on how the poor economy and limited career opportunities have stunted or redefined the transition into what was traditionally considered “adulthood”, followed by a look into the economic depressant that is student loan debt that kind of trails off without any real ideas on how to solve it.
I’ll then take a look at how we cope with our surroundings - our sexual habits (we are the first group of people in the history of the world to enjoy fucking each other, it turns out), our drinking habits (screenshots of thousands of tumblr posts here), our music and fashion, and then top if off with a backhanded complement about how in tune with new technology we are while wondering if it has hurt the creation of meaningful interpersonal relationships and made us self-indulgent narcissists.
Did I hit everything? I think I hit everything. I think it’ll be really hot and original and really blow the lid off the many mysteries surrounding us that I don’t think anyone has really tried to explain yet. Maybe the New York Times would even pick it up. Imagine that!
