“If you want to understand society, take a good look at the drugs it uses. And what can this tell you about American culture? Well, look at the drugs we use. Except for pharmaceutical poison, there are essentially only two drugs that Western civilization tolerates: Caffeine from Monday to Friday to energize you enough to make you a productive member of society, and alcohol from Friday to Monday to keep you too stupid to figure out the prison that you are living in.”—Bill Hicks (via myheadisweak)
”If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers, we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats, we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models."
Your older sisters, I’ve had them too But you’re my favorite, you know it’s true You look like your mother, in that thin disguise Your parting mouth, your shutting eyes And the way that you hate me, and the length of your hair It’s the reason I made you, it’s the bond that we share You see we’re all trying to endure You could easily go and make your own life somewhere Couldn’t you?
I’m beat. I haven’t had a day off in weeks. I think my next day off might be monday though. I hope. I keep hurting myself. I dropped a chair on my foot the other day, cut my self shaving three times (wtf?), slammed my ankle into a pole, hit my head and bruised my leg when I was drunk. I guess I should probably start watching what I’m doing, haha. Life is boring. I guess thats why I don’t make a lot of text posts lately. It’s just been the same old same old all summer. I guess summer is over now, though. It was 70 degrees last night! Hahaha, Arizona weather. What a joke. It was a great summer though. Graduated high school finally. Relaxed. Went to Maine. Made a lot of money. Went to the river like 8 times. It was good. I’m excited for this next year though. Blink 182 is in 14 days. Maine in a month. School starts November 7th. I feel good about what I’m doing. I feel like I’m going in the right direction even though this year threw me about a thousand curve balls. Things can only get better
“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.”—Simone de Beauvoir (via misswallflower)
Do you ever fall asleep and then wake up hours later and wonder how it even happened, and try to remember the last thing you thought or felt before your body shut down, it seems so instant, like one minute you’re awake and aware and then you’re not, maybe that’s what dying’s like.
