    Life In General

    I decided to drive to Wyoming on my motorcycle(from Wisconsin), then work in Sturgis for two weeks, on a whim. I also make decisions extremely impulsively. Is this bad? Has anyone found a legitimate reason to enable this behavior?

    What's the point of being alive

    if you feel dead? I rather be a lunatic, than a scholar. Listening in, i hear their words. That i'm a freak, that i'm crazy, that I'm poison. That I'm going to die young. I hold these words closer than lovers hold one another. I Like to turn then, face the mass of apathy, of...

    Not Always

    but right now I am. I get a burst of energy where I feel like I need to do something crazy or dangerous. I don't care if I get hurt, actually I want to get hurt. If I get hurt it makes the experience more exciting and memorable and just plain crazy. I don't know what I want to do...

    hell out of me to keep me distracted...maybe more appreciative for what's not going wrong?

    I'm getting reckless.

    Im letting people into my life that shouldn't be here. I need to remember that I'm just a kid. I'm not supposed to be doing what I'm doing. I know it but refuse to stop. why must I go down this road. sooner or later it's going to be too late to turn back.

    The blood..The heat of the moment. I lust for the unknown, the rush, the thrill! I was driving today, not very well. If I am not going fast, then I am not feeling alive. I saw the turn, yes i did. Did I slow down? No. No i did not. In fact I accelerated! I wanted to take...

    On any other night, I would be sitting at home, knitting while Jon Stewart ridiculed the talking heads.  On any other night, I would be happy to be quiet.  But tonight...  tonight my blood rushes too hot.  The slight mist of a New York summer night touches my skin like silk...

    Toned It Down a Bit....

    I've always been reckless my entire life. But Ive always put myself in situations where if, something DID go wrong, I would be the only one to get hurt. Back in the days when I was stationed in Dallas, I used to organize the illegal street races out there. Oh how that was fun...
