mood: nostalgicnostalgic


It was not Raj Lyubov's nature to think, "What can I do?" Character and training disposed him not to interfere in other men's business. His job was to find out what they did, and his inclination was to let them go on doing it. He preferred be enlightened rather than to enlighten; to seek facts rather than the Truth. But even the most unmissionary soul, unless he pretend he has no emotions, is sometimes faced with a choice between comission and omission. "What are they doing?" abruptly becomes, "What are we doing", and then "What must I do?"


that was a saved draft from a post i was going to write over a year ago. I cannot remember what I wanted to say about it :P

I am nostalgic for the the days and some of the feelings associated with the days that livejournal was a relevant social network for me. I am also nostalgic for the small group of friends that were a part of this social network with me.

I am remembering the good feelings from the times, not the bad. That's probably a good thing, because usually I wrote here when I was feeling unhappy.

My first livejournal post: August first, 2004. mood: pleasant.

The times will change, and the people who i get to see regularly will change. I sincerely hope that I will always be able to stay in touch with everyone here I am friends with.

January 19th is Remember your friends day.

Jan. 18th, 2009 | 11:14 am

Tomorrow is a personal holiday, Remember-Your-Friends-Day.

It's unusual for me to stay friends with people I've stopped spending time with. I've got this vague notion that there's something shallow about that... as if we are only friends out of convenience.

But really, I think that it's okay.

Tomorrow, take a moment to remember your friends past and present. Surround yourself with the best friends you can find.

I hate bragging and that's what this whole grad school application thing feels like. I'd rather just be honest about things. At least it's not as bad as applying for regular jobs. And it's so close to being totally finished... for this year anyway.

It's only poisoning my brain because I cant quite figure the antidote out. I swear I'm getting closer though.

While my LJ post count is no longer round, it's now a palindrome!! score!

This is what I know. listen.

It's one of our most difficult obstacles.
Don't be a hero.
Don't try to be stronger than anyone else.
Don't look at Vash the Stampede and say "I should be like that"
Because the hero needs to be unique enough to convince himself (or herself, but I suspect it's less common) that no one Understands them.
"I'm this lone figure on my fucking mountain peak, BITCH. You may wonder what it's like up here and let me tell you: it's COLD, you can maybe come partway up here but this highest peak is for me to stand alone."

And You DO have your peak, and you are unique but unless you share it with your friends, Your just another lonely fucker on a Mountaintop.  Artists and musicians especially.  we think we are just soo fucking special on our cold and lonely cliffs.

FUCK that! Friends, FIGHT against this with me. It sounds hard and is harder!!  If you are not a fighter, then just take me to your peak. If you don't want me on your peak, take someone else, it comes to the same thing.

My troubles lie not with fighting living stones,
I keep them in my home,
My friends and ego by my side, argue amongst each other,
When we are alone.

I was in a grocery store a month ago and I remember this rather plump middle aged woman talking to her partner... They were standing at the checkout register. The woman said matter-of-factly " Oh, I wanted to get some spreading cheese.... I've got these crackers at home, and I need something to eat them with"

It sounded clear to me that she just liked cheese and crackers. But with her guy/husband/BF there she found some practical and rational reason.

I'm not sure exactly why, but I find something about that 'icky'. It's pretty irrelevant to my life, when a couple in a store does it, but I just noticed myself doing it too. I wanted something because it would be fun and interesting, and when I was explaining this to someone else I was all like 'well here are the practical reasons why this is good for me.'  Eeeugh! Gross.

Sometimes It's a two sided thing though... I can imagine that if that guy in the grocery store heard his wife saying that she wanted something like that explaining all the reasons why that desire was not logical... "those are bad for you, expensive, etc". Why should anyone have to defend their desires rationally? 

I've seen this come up between couples a lot. It usually seems to be the male party essentially accusing 'Look here are the ways that you are acting/feeling irrational, what's wrong with you??'

Weird, des ne??

on buying a domain name, Hosting.

Jul. 22nd, 2007 | 06:21 pm

I've bought maybe four or five domain names in the past mostly from different vendors, and I was never very satisfied with the service(maybe because I always went for the cheapest option). Do any Internet savvy here experienced in the matter have any advice?
I don't remember the ones I've had in the past. But I remember liking yahoo Domains better than godaddy. I don't remember why.

More Importantly, I need to get hosting too. I don't need a lot of bandwidth, maybe < 1GB/month but with the option to upgrade. I remember that searching through forums  etc to find reviews was a waste of time.

thanks, I welcome any advice.

I'm out of school and living in Framingham for the summer.   I had a good year at school. The sound recording program at UML is the first place I have been where I've really gotten something significant back for working hard. I mean with classes that I have taken other places, I've learned a lot, but that happens slowly and its sometimes not very noticable. Here I can tell that I'm learning fun interesting things, many of which have actually been useful for doing things that I want to do. especially stuff relating to audio. I think that real jobs that actually pay money are opening up to me but its hard to tell.

This summer, I'm doing some work with a Grammy winning classical producer. I think that he is in the process of sort of checking me out to see if I am a worthy investment for him to keep working with. I am going to be working on some editing projects with him, and on location recording.  he's very subtle about it, but its weird being judged in that way. So if I'm right about this then there's the possibility, that I will have a lot of really sweet interesting work through him, and the possibility that I will have a lot less somewhat interesting work.
It looks like I will also be doing some freelance recording with another local engineer. 

that work is going to be less hours for now anyway, than I was originally hoping, so It looks like I will still need to find a normal part time summer job, if I want to make any money. I think I might loan myself out to a temp agency. but if anyone has any ideas or recommendations I would appreciate them.
I have a car for the first time since the LeBaron, which will make getting a job much easier than last summer, I hope.  a 93' ford escort that cost 200$ and has working sir conditioning! a such a luxury. This also means that I can go places. sort of. when I have money for gas. which is unusual and awesome.
