Hazzard County Wisdom

This hits a little too close to home: Most folks eat when they’re hungry. Boss Hogg eats when he’s nervous. If he didn’t burn it off worrying, Ol’ Boss ‘ud weigh a ton.

So while taking a break from homework, I’ve been watching a National Geographic program (Nature’s Nightmares) on spiders. It makes me glad that we don’t have much in the way of giant+aggressive+superpoisonous spiders around here. It was also interesting to watch the mating rituals of various spiders. (Black Widow males are disgusting looking, by the way.) For most species, it seems that the male merely has to do a little dance for the female and BAM! He is in sex city. Of course the female generally kills and devours the male after mating. I suppose that is a sure-fire way to guarantee fidelity. Oh, the price we pay to play…

Drive me far away. I don’t care where, just far away.

I miss taking road trips and getting away on weekends. It grounds me. It gives me perspective on my self and my life.

I need to learn how to just not care about everything so much. I don’t know why I let things like this bother me. I know what’s going on, I know that it is out of my control, and for that matter, I would’t have any right to conrol it even if I could, but I keep wanting for things to be different than they are. I like to think that I can change the world, that I can help people chenge themselves for the better. I need to just work on changing myself for the better, but it’s easier to see others’ mistakes than my own mistakes. I just can’t see myself objectively, no matter how hard I try. That is why I can give good advice but then not even be able to take my own advice. I can’t help myself, so I try to help others… but you can’t really help anyone who won’t help themselves. Sometimes life feels like a train screeching and sliding down the rails towards a collapsed bridge. Those of us in the front can see what’s coming, but none of us have any power to stop it. We are all fucking doomed.
