Welcome to my livejournal.
Yesterday I accidentally opened a twitter thread. It felt like opening a door during a freak blizzard and I quickly shut it and retreated to my homestead to dry animal pelts. That said, we're going to have to bite the bullet and get back on that train soon, but in the meantime it did make me seriously consider whether the world needs any further emissions of opinions of any kind.
While we ponder that, here are some half-baked observations that I don't have the time or skill to extend into longer white-space filling shapes:
1) The transition when something goes from very new and shiny and always going back in it's original home/case/packaging to being something you treat like literally garbage. I'm looking at you, new glasses, and you too, soon to be neglected new glasses case. See also my extreme desire to use my phone without a case, and the five minutes spent each night taking the case off, marvelling and how clean glass looks without micro-abrasions. Imagining my new, improved life, whereby my naked phone and I gallivant carefree throughout the streets. People see my take my phone out, marvelling at my cool and easy mastery of life and maturity because my phone is pure as the driven snow, despite me handling it all the time. How does he do it? Remembering my actual life. Remembering I need to treat my phone better. Thanking the case for it's diligent work, even though the bottom is frayed and hurts my hand when I hold it. Remembering everyone needs to treat everyone better. The phone is just a metaphor. Far out man.
2) I actually didn't have anything else. I was hoping it would come to me during my usual stream of consciousness, but the only thing I came even close to had to do with used chewing gum and that is not the time or place for that.
If you made it this far, don't stop now. Keep going. One step at a time. We're going to make it together. Or at least to the end of this newsletter intro.
