Enema of da Stank


Just got back from vacationing in a big ol' state called California (we stayed in the southern part). Here are the things I DIDN'T love:

1. too many people and buildings
2. expensive living
3. general sadness
4. geared toward the rich
5. dirty Hollywood
6. crowded, littered beaches
7. gorgeous waves that can't be ridden or you'll be hurled into big rocks
8. terrible highway signage
9. weird oil rigs at Huntington beach
10. yacht clubs

Things I loved:

1. the beach, overall
2. seeing family
3. In-N-Out
4. seeing the sun while it's low in the sky (which is most of America, really)
5. not going to work (which is most of America, really)

...I think that's it. I would love to go to the redwood forest at some point. I'd like to visit Oregon. Colorado is great though, not sure if I'll ever move away. I feel like there's a million places in Colorado that I still haven't seen. It's open and beautiful and the vegetation isn't threatening (?) Hardly any bugs, at least in the cities. Fitness. Cheap. Also, I feel like it would be pretty easy to be famous in Colorado Springs. If you walk around downtown talking to enough people, you'll probably get to be a known and talked about figure. You'll be featured in the paper.

What a beautiful day it is today. Wow, the weather and air and sunlight is just right. Wish I had some In-N-Out though.

"Stay here, stay as long as you can. For the love of God, cherish it."

Isn't it sooooooooooooooooooooooo funny how we thought that being a grown up would be super great?


It was fun for a little bit, but I think I'm done now. Ugh. Maybe I made some terrible choices or something. I should have built my credit sooner. I should have stayed single. I should have had some sort of plan. I'm like a dog in a person suit and I just want things to happen naturally and I want live in the moment, but I'm too "smart" to be a dog now. I have to consider things, I have to pay rent, I have to drive a car, I have to thoroughly heat my hamburgers, I have to stop drinking from the toilet, I have to read and write and calculate and apply and verify and authorize and remember and track and care, or at least pretend to care. haha. 

I think I'm going to write a children's book. No one will read it, but it'll be funny. I appreciate that my parents didn't sugar-coat adulthood. My mother would chime in once a while with her famous quote: "life sucks, then ya die." haha. I had high expectations... but not really. I probably just need a vacation. I don't deserve a great deal, but if I don't get a break soon I'm gunna start attacking the elderly. 

I saw a funny thing today: "I slept for 8 hours straight and then 2 hours gay" 

Anyways, one of our office fish looked like it was ready to die this morning when I came in. Then it got better, but I don't know how long fish live or if it's just trying to find a spot under a rock to die. It would be the first fish to die in this tank since I've been taking care of them. I'ma go water the plants now and check on said fish. Byeeeeeeeeee.

*EDIT* He ded:(
