That Cheesy Introspective Post With A Cheesy Song and A Cheesy Picture
I’m in this spot right now where everything could go right. Like each general area of my life is leaning towards the better.
And I’m terrified.
Because I’m pretty sure it won’t work out the way I want it to. And not like it’ll all be shitty, but the chances of each area going in my favor is just unlikely.
In past week I’ve run into a number of instances where the message in the end of this song has been thrust forth upon me:
"Expectation…leads to disappointment. If you don’t expect something big, huge, and exciting…usually um…I don’t know. You just notice…yeah."
I’ve never been a fan of that mindset. Thats not to say that it’s never been a recurring thought. Far from it. I guess I just got to a point where I figured its a better life if you try fight off your demons instead of feeding them.
Thats not too grounded in reality is it? I guess I’m just a little more of an idealist.
Its just a little hard to not expect anything. I like expecting things. Its a great feeling.
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”—Bob Marley
On occasion, the multimillionaire Harvard graduate revealed a touch of plebeian resentment: in the 1930s, a reporter blithely called him an Irish American. ”I was born here,” sputtered Joseph (JFK’s father). ”My children were born here. What the hell do I have to do to be an American?”
Fuck yeah JFK’s father. Every minority should feel the same fucking way.
"As revealing of the nature of Eisenhower’s domestic policy during its first term was the administration’s unsuccessful quest for even more such policy changes. Eisenhower proposed legislation to extend health insurance coverage through federal underwriting of the policies issued by private carriers. Congress blocked the move, however, which had antagonized both the most extreme New Deal (FDR) liberals, who wanted a program of public health insurance, and the most conservative Republicans and their Dixiecrat allies, who wanted the health care system to remain an entirely private one."
That was 1955. Its been nearly 60 years and were still fighting about the same shit.
“I told my mom it reminds me of the scenes from Palestine on 9/11 when people were cheering in the street. i honestly like couldn’t believe the scenes. I understand people flocking to ground zero because it’s kind of like it’s full circle, but the crowds in the streets in other cities and outside the White House are just bizarre.”— I love you Sean
