A little peak into my world?
I wish I did yoga, knew how to samba, could drive (and had the resources to use my license for a road trip), frequently traveled the world (or at all), drank less crap and more water, and I reaaaaally wish I could ride a bike.
But it's not all bad. Here's what I actually do: learn languages, read books, drink delicious coffees and teas, look out my window a lot (I have a great window), take volunteer jobs for the fun of it, and so much more.
I have lots of cool things as well. My bed is cool (and red). My favorite mug is simple, but cool (also red). I have a giant wooden tiki spoon on my wall. I have great roommates, who I have known since middle school. I have the city I live in, which amazes me more every day. I have my laptop, my fucking laptop that I love more than food and air.
Things suck hard and suck hard often, but overall... thing's aren't bad.

Mitch Hedberg was Twitter before Twitter. His jokes were short, inane, and timeless. He was on the road, doing stand-up 300 nights a year, living off vending machines, writing constantly about the world he saw around him. “Mitch wrote some of the best jokes of the last three decades,” says Mike Birbiglia, who like most young comedians idolized Hedberg. “He is one comedian who all comedians agree is great.” Hedberg was never without a pen, and he never threw away a notebook. Since his death in 2005 from a drug overdose, his wife, Lynn Shawcroft, has kept most of the notebooks private. But this year, she opened them up to GQ. The results? A master class in comedy.

the first episode of twilight zone tells this story of a man who appears out of nowhere not knowing who he is or where he is. he’s walking down this road and he finds a coffee shop. the coffee is still hot and there’s music still playing, but nobody is around. he eventually finds this city, complete with shops and a church and a police station, but still no one is there. so he freaks and flips until finally he goes completely insane.
and like every twilight zone episode, this one has a message. being alone is one of the scariest possibilities to consider.
