It’s the end of the world as we know!!! And I feel FANTASTIC!!!!!! Smash those expectations to the ground! Screw how I’m SUPPOSED to be or what I’m SUPPOSED to do!!! Damn!! This feels good! This feels right! This is thousands of years of philosophy and social studies pouring out of my angsty forever-teenage brain!!! The age of obliteration has finally arrived!!!! *cannons fire, lights blaze across the sky, people everywhere revolt against themselves*
Listen. More or less, we all have the same problems and we’re hearing everyone else talk about the same solutions in different ways. It’s always the super simple answer that’s the right answer. Need a change? Change something. Not happy with what you’re doing? Do something else. Hate the way you act? Act differently. But each other us learn differently. Sometimes, the things I speak or write about resonate with people because it’s not perfect. I’m working out the thoughts with you on the spot and trying to get to the same place. We’re unfinished and not the people we like to pretend we are online. We’re more. We’re less.
That’s why I’m done with tune-ups. I’m done re-purposing. I want to smash myself to pieces and start from scratch. I’m nothing without a strong foundation. So continually building off of shoddy groundwork builds towards the same topple time and time again.
I’m going through this now in my own life. Obliteration. I’m getting rid of everything, emerging from the rubble, and just walking towards the sun until I’m close enough to roast marshmallows. Rock n’ roll!
