Put A Ding in the Universe

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
—Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Speech, 2005

Shattered

My San Diego Beer Week glass fell from the dish drying rack while I was at work today and shattered all over the floor. 

Sometimes it feels as though the universe does things like break the glass I received as a Christmas gift to put exclamation points on my sorrow. 

rest in love, my sweet cup

There is Always (the) Craigslist (killer)

So, as many of you know, I have signed up for my fair share of dating sites in my years. And most recently (i.e. for like 2 years) I have been on OKCupid. It is free which is the main reason I have stuck to it.

I message approximately 1 dude per week. I take my time reading their profile and put together a thoughtful message.

I am direct and open in my responses to the messages I receive as well.

I have had absolutely zero success with this site. I think I have a good summary and some nice photos of myself. I am willing to go out and actually meet people for things (which is something I wasn't really into when I did this when I lived in LA when I think about it honestly). My only victory was to have a good message chain back and forth with a guy and almost get to the point that we were going to arrange to meet until he decided to fall off the face of the earth.

This shit is rough. Maybe I need to be more aggressive and message more guys per week. Or I don't know... more cleavage shots?

advice?

maybe this site only works for the gays...

Trust Me

Go call your mom.

Kids These Days

I tried to post this from my phone last night but it didn't work:

Reading an essay in a book I picked up a couple weeks ago about youth culture and digital media. Was really into it until I read a paragraph that started with "Television, Facebook, iPhone, Photoshop, text messaging... they yield a whole new youth lifeworld"

Uhh... Photoshop? In this context, trust me, that totally doesn't fit. Now I will spend the rest of the essay thinking it was written by Andy Rooney.

Get off my lawn.

Hold These Truths

Shopping won't really make you happy. Makeup won't truly make you pretty.

Work on your insides.

Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
