The next thing I’m spending my money on will be a “bug-out” kit for a vehicle - it will have rations, potable water, a tent, a water filtration kit, first-aid kit a couple changes of clothes for various climates and a just-for-men hair coloring kit. Just in case I’ve got to skip town for Mexico.
Of course, blogging in general is just another narcissistic attempt at securing validation for ourselves. We put our inner thoughts and feelings out there because we desperately hope someone agrees, latches on to or at least reads what we’re writing. This is all pretty obvious, but it wasn’t until like 20 seconds ago I realized that’s why I blog about everything I buy. My compulsion demands validation.
Look at me, I’m buying shit I don’t need! This is what success is, right? Right guys? This is worth it? The long drives, long hours and depleted energy levels - worth it right? CHECK OUT THIS SWEET 32lb GUMMY BEAR! OMG VINTAGE RUSSIAN LAPEL BUTTONS! WHA-WHA-WHA A ROBOT THAT VACUUMS MY FLOORS? FUCK ME, I NEED THAT!
TOTES WORTH IT.
Look, me, if this isn’t what you want to do with your life, figure out what is, but don’t keep asking people to validate your own insecurities. Man up, figure it out and dive in.
Wtf, can only post text from my phone and not from my computer…weird. Daydreamer - never meant to ignore you, I just post from my phone most of the time which means I don’t see my dashboard or comments too often. Sorry!
I’m an hour or so into a 5 hour drive home and I decided to only listen to entire CDs. Up now, Dr Dre’s Chronic from 01…Murder Ink is killin’ it right now, I forgot how much this album rocked.
