    Today I realized something I have always been

    aware of, but never truly acknowledged. I have absolutely no idea how to take care of myself.

    One day you're seventeen

    and planning for someday, and then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today, and that someday is yesterday and this is your life.

    That I really don't have any true close friends.

    That I'm Very Lucky

    I have written about my dead end job and my lack of satisfaction  with it. But I've talked with a couple of persons today that are having problems with their relationship. That made me value the fact that I have a wife that loves me.

    Have You Seen the Movie a Fish Called Wanda?

    I just realized that I have listened to "Going

    Under" the first track from Evanescence's first album "Fallen" every day (no exception) from the first day that it was published to the public - that is over ten (10) years! No doubt it has influenced my life and thoughts in ways that I do not know. The song still stirs...

    I Hate To Grow Up

    Whenever I see children, I wish I would be like their age. Do you know why? because they have lesser problems than me. I have realized whenever we grow up, our problems grow up with us too. So why would I grow up if my problems are going to grow up with me?!

    how fast this world is changing.

    ..how civilization has changed in the past few hundred years. As human beings we can not adapt/change fast enough to keep up with this world. Our brains are still hardwired for a more primal life.That is why depression is so common....if you look at native tribes even today...

    I'm not as kinky as I thought I was.

    .. Oh, sure, everything's relative and I suppose I'm a little kinky but I'm not that wild. I like thinking about kinky stuff more than anything but I really don't see myself going wild... and that's okay.

    That I'm mediocre

    My life amounts to nothing. What I do at work is useful, but is not the sort of stuff that gives meaning to an existence. I mean "I kept the frozen goods well stocked" is not a very inspiring epitaph. I have in me something to give, but it appears that not in the right...
