Mediocratopia: 11

Motivation, discipline, and energy are complex personality traits. While they are not immutable functions of nature or nurture, they do form fairly entrenched equilibria. Shifting these equilibria to superficially more socially desirable ones isn’t merely a matter of consuming enough hustle-porn fortune cookies or suddenly becoming a...

Ppl as reply to Your group

1. Wife and kids. Obvs.

2. I have a friend and we have a deal where he calls me every day and we are supposed to hold ourselves accountable to do certain daily habits but mostly we just bullshit for about 30 minutes every time. I just got off the phone...

The thing about angry people is

They make you feel bad
For maybe hours, or a day, or days
But you'll move on

They never will
They'll be angry forever
They'll resent you
They'll talk shit about you on the whispernet

It will live inside them
Clicking seconds off their clock

Bad day

I've had a weird day that started at 2:30 and climaxed with a trip to one of those small private ERs for an IV of fluids, pain meds, and anti-inflammatories. I just ate part of a cliff bar--my first solid food today. I wish it were all interesting enough for...

Same! as reply to Long day

6:30 I started by not quite getting moving thoroughly enough to get a ride in in the hour (7:00-8:00) I had before The Girl's volleyball game. I worked instead which turned out to be good...I was actually productive and I hope helpful. I knew I had to get some work...

Banh Mi

Today I had the best banh mi sandwich I've ever had. I'm not sure if I've had banh mi outside of Dallas but I know I've had a decent variety of them here. This was easily the best.

You start with the bread. The bread is the heart of any...

Intuition

Where in that grey space between all the inputs we allow into our mind, all the thoughts that rattle around and through, and "forces...beyond human comprehension and the dualistic...space/time framework through which we understand reality", as Russell Brand puts it, lies our intuition, our ability to choose, our ability to...

Possible reasons

Possible reasons that seemingly everyone (we'll refer to them with the royal "you") on a call in the conference room next to my office at the coworking space talks extremely loudly:

You are old enough to have started doing conference calls in the 80s or 90s when microphone and speaker...

I've been a drummer since the 3rd grade and discovered Rush and...

Too tired

I feel like I'm in a fugue state but it's just that I'm utterly exhausted. I need to go to sleep. I need to take my pills tomorrow. I've skipped two days and it's like my brain is unable to create the chemicals necessary for life anymore. I hate that....
