Heading to War Means Good Music

Heading to War Means Good Music

I try my best not to follow the news, but the news seems to follow me.  As hard as I try to stay out of everything I just can’t.  Maybe it’s the reddit posts that make it to the front page (and the fact that I can’t be bothered to make an account and unsubscribe from defaults), maybe it’s my Facebook feed full of articles, maybe it’s a morbid interest, but I can’t avoid it.  I used to follow the news a lot closer but I got sick of it, it only made me anxious and worried and didn’t inform me like the news media is supposed to do.

Finding a Reason

Finding a Reason

Finding a reason for what I do is probably the most difficult thing for me.  Difficult because the reasons are not always something easily visible, or even things I think of beforehand.  Difficult because I often forget (or lose sight of) the reason I’m doing something.  I have a lot of things that I take on, different projects and ideas and hobbies I pursue.  Sometimes I get lost in the weeds and end up unable to do anything, sometimes I forget the reason I do anything.  Sometimes it all falls apart and I forget what’s important.

How Can We Expect to Survive in a World Filled With Such Hate?

How Can We Expect to Survive in a World Filled With Such Hate?

I find myself asking this question a lot lately.  Why is there so much hate in the world?  Why does it seem like all we are good at is hate?  We’ve been conscious and intelligent animals for millennia now, how have we not figured it out?  Then I remember that there is an important word in that question, animals. We are still animals.  As much as we like to put on clothes and pretend otherwise we can’t escape it.  The amount of hate in the world only serves as a reminder of this fact. Continue reading →
