Finals Suck

That is all.

 

I have never been so happy to be wrong

I fully expected the Rovian machine to do its damndest to steal the vote across America. I didn’t think they would let power go quite so easily. I am very happy I was wrong.

But then again…maybe they just save the big cheating for the presidential races.

 

You didn’t know this already?

I meet people sometimes who still have faith that our political and electoral system accurately reflects the will of the people. You know, that quaint notion that the person who gets the most votes wins?

Isn’t that just fucking adorable?

Anyway, if you didn’t already know what happened to put Dear Leader into office back in 2004, a fine and upstanding member of the Kennedy clan
breaks it down

On the nature of addiction

Why do we play? For many of us, this thing we do has become a second job. The amount of actual pleasure/joy/reward we derive from the game has dwindled. But there is still a compulsion to log in, to make the appointments, to put in the effort. We feel guilty when we don’t.

I used to enjoy it so much. Or at least I sat somewhere in the happy nexus between joy and obsession. You dream about this thing, you get deep enough in and it pervades every part of your consciousness, all the time. But the joy fades, and the obsession becomes addiction. What keeps us hooked?

We make excuses, just like any addict does. It’s cheaper than other forms of entertainment! More bang for your buck! I like the social interaction, it’s how I spend time with my friends! Those things may all be true, but there are costs that are not monetary. Social interaction is good, but getting out of the house is pretty fucking important too. And the longer you last in this addiction, the higher the probability that you have to deal with people you’d like to stab in the eye with a pencil.

But it will stay in my head.

Missing some skin

Ξ July 19th, 2006 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Randomness |

I remember being five years old, playing little league, hands in batting gloves to cover broken skin. My dad blames himself, he says he pushed me too hard. I don’t remember that part of it; I don’t remember baseball at the age of five being stressful. But nothing worked to fix my skin. Just bloody hands until the season ended. And I kept playing.
It still happens. I registered for classes yesterday. Year Two of law school. My left thumb is raw, missing the top three layers of skin now. I wonder what the market is for lawyers with bloody hands. Somehow I doubt I’ll be the only one to fall in that category.
