Scared shitless…

…and looking at a sea ahead…

i think i can, i think i can…

I once had a conversation with a friend; it was about reincarnation. My friend said that if he could come back he would like to be a cow. Reasoning that dairy cows live a life of comfort he goes on to paint a picture of green pastures and blue sunny days. Right off the bat I mention that the majority of cows don’t live a life like he described. I told him most cows live a life of industrial foods and pills, all with their own special time card clocked with a scientific effectiveness. Basic Industry facts. My friend does not eat pork. Then I told him he should try to be more precise. I brought up India; why not come back and be worshipped as a god? He laughed and I asked why he didn’t think of the most common born again creature: A bird. At most with being a bird one could go and do as one wants with the whole sky to call home; at least you would have wings. Going back and forth for some time he finally asked what I would like to come back as after I die. I answered it would be as a whale. I go on to explain that to be able to endure the darkest depths of the sea, and to make it back to the surface as one pleases, that is an existence. It doesn’t matter about the strength of the winds above. It is not about where the currents are going, not where the sun or moon is. All that matters is to do what you gotta do, do it good, and live. Another chapter…

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;

Am an attendant lord, one that will do

To swell a progress, start a scene or two,

Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,

Deferential, glad to be of use,

Politic, cautious, and meticulous;

Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;

At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—

Almost, at times, the Fool

here goes nothing!

why, hello there, stranger. a whale, huh? i would be...an owl. maybe a hippo, but i hear they aren't that pretty in real life. hm, well why do i need to be pretty if i'm a hippo? no, maybe i'd be an owl. or maybe i was already an owl in a past life. maybe. either, way there is an owl on my body now. forever.

tattoos ARE fun. shading is painful, but afterwards, it is so worth it. already planning out 2nd and 3rd ones. when i'm not poor, it'll happen. maybe i should just befriend a nice tattoo artist. hm.

college is fun. beach view from my dorm. sunny san diego. even though it's more like la jolla...homesick, though. more friendsick, i think. have yet to meet someone truly awesome here. makes me sad. but i'm moved out! yes!

asia was fun. lots of time spent with family, not used to it. saw solar eclipse. pretty cool. now i can die saying i witnessed something that people won't for at least 10 more years. maybe 15, i forgot, they said on the television.
