curiosity leads to

way too much information than i think i needed to know. i’ve always been sort of a curious child and this curiosity has sometimes led me to find out things that i didn’t need to know.

you’d think that because i’ve found out too much, i’d stop, but still, it’s like a moth to a flame. i just can’t help it.


i remember a long, long time ago, i was talking to a friend of mine back in high school. we were talking about a friend of ours who he reffered to as “having a golden boot shoved up his ass.” i had never heard this expression before, so i asked my friend to explain it. he told me that basically it means that he’s had everything handed to him on a silver platter and his perfect life was not earned, but rather through just given to him.

i feel that people like this don’t really understand the world. they have these false expectations that things should just happen and they feel that if something doesn’t happen their way, then something is very wrong. if you’ve lived a charmed life like that, your expectations are just insanely unrealistic.

i think one of the frustrating things that i see is that i put a lot of work and energy in the things i do to get to where i am…and so when i see other people just handed certain things in their life, i feel like it’s wildly unfair. surely there must be justice in the world, right?

double trouble

i was really thirsty the other day and i went to 7-eleven to get a drink. imagine my surprise when i saw the double gulp size. sure, i’ve seen super gulp, but double gulp? nearly 2 liters of soft drink joy.
