if year ago me knew what today me was doing… the fuck am i doing -_-
I can’t wait to move in with you. Wake up to your face, make breakfast with you, watch Saturday morning cartoons with you, kiss you goodnight, cuddle with you and do it all over again the next day.
But Saturday cartoons won’t be playing Sunday…
New ‘Great Gatsby’ Trailer with Beyonce and Andre 3000’s “Back to Black”
I never cared much about The Great Gatsby, but with a soundtrack like this, yes please gimme.
i realized it’s really gonna distract me that leonardo dicaprio is gonna be sucking face with carey mulligan… he could be her father…
Obviously they forgot about happy…
1. Wake up early
2. Get tired
3. Drink red bull
4. Can’t sleep because of red bull
it feels good to get things done instead of just talking about getting things done for once
these next 2 weeks are gonna be hell…
DEATH BEFORE DEFEAT
if you bought a book
and you didnt like it
would you finish it?
if you bought a book
and it was a nearly unsatisfying struggle
why do you have to finish it?
undoubtedly, a writer would be no good at writing
if he never read
but it doesnt mean he should read everything he comes across
even if he already bought the book
there’s more to life than challenging yourself
the ironman of choreo… don’t really want to like him but can’t help it ughh
Receptionist: Don’t you feel like your generation is just lazy?Me: Lazy? I’d say apathetic.Receptionist: Isn’t it the same?Me: No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don’t see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they’re feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn’t been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that’s because things aren’t going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lost its status as a super power. We’ve lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We’ve done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn’t say we’re lazy, just apathetic.
I don’t believe our generation is lazy, nor do I think it is truly apathetic - I think it may be popular culture to be apathetic but that’s a whole different stupid topic.
What’s wrong with this generation is that we think we are special. America fought in Afghanistan and Iraq - and no disrespect, it is a big deal, but Vietnam, WWI, WWII are on a whole different level. We are passionate about our gay and women’s rights, but the movement is not nearly as revolutionary as the fight for, say, black rights. Other countries have suffered worse economic downturns, and some are suffering more despite not even being in an economic rut.
Our country may be falling as a leading superpower for once, but how long have we been in that position anyways? Compared to the Roman Golden Age, British Imperialism, Alexander the Great’s empire, our mark in history is large but by no means more significant (an understatement). And our college degrees may be worth less, but that still puts us in the 1 percent (worldwide).
We speak of our hardships as if they are extraordinary or unique. Why are we so dignified in overcoming obstacles that are faced by almost every nation and many generations - especially when the struggles that a large amount of us face at our “worst” is still less hardship than what other generations and nations face at their finest?
I may be out of line or straight up ignorant in some of these over-generalizations - but the overall undeserved entitlement of our generation to be special (with no help from the rise of social media) is no exaggeration… If anything, we are just the self centered generation. Sorry for the wall of text and fight club speech.
And that’s a wrap!
Ungh all the hard work paid off… Empty seat where Adriyum should be sitting…
So, Facebook recently released a new feature - “2012 in review”. Any new Facebook feature is usually some bit of innovation combined with a larger bit of inconvenience or genuine confusion. However, upon opening the link I was pleasantly surprised… It was a well chosen collection of memories that nostalgically summed up 2012.
I never thought I would look back on this year so fondly, especially with the ups and downs and transitions - especially when I so revered the golden year of G1. Yet, from JD Montreal to Cali to New York… From Bulletproof to Upro to just 303/G1 crew, I never thought there would be so many moments from this year that can stop and make me smile.
The delicious meal at Eggspectation…
Finally figuring out that Static’s set was about the news…
Being on top of “the top of the world” (with Andrew too)…
First UPRO show back…
1179 Beacon after Thursday practice hangouts…
Honestly, this list could go on and on and the pictures would take forever to scroll through… but I’m extremely grateful for the experiences that I’ve had this year. The happiness that all these memories have brought me make it a little easier to face the future, not only because I know you guys will always be there, but also because I know that as long as you guys are there it will be a good time. Shout out to Nick Lee, Lizz Yu, Lou Lin and Adrian Ho… I’m not really the type to keep in touch or have long catch up conversations but I miss you guys every day. No homo, please don’t make fun of me.
