calm your tits

I first read this a last October. I’ve re-read it and like it so much I had to re-blog it!

lovers liars and losers

when life becomes too much to handle some shut themselves off to the world, some terminate certain aspects of their lives and some even set out on a new adventure leaving the old in the past, but me…i decided to start a blog to only add to this crazy thing called life.

hi. i’m jae. i’m 23 and have a job that i love while living in a fabulously tiny apartment.  only looking at life in regard to the next few hours as so much can happen oh so quickly…  i love everything about my life and have everything that i want in life except one thing….a guy.

many guys have come and gone…and throughout all of my experiences i have compiled quite the collection of interesting stories.  when rehashing my dates or online encounters, people always are doubled over laughing and normally end up saying, “you could write a…

      1. I feel the same way. While I naturally would like to be world famous and viral in terms of benefitting people with the bit of writing I do, reality is the greatest change I can create is the ripple effect of changing one person’s moment for the better.

      2. I may be mistaken but huge chunks of the people who use social media approach it as a numbers game.

        Alot of people on Flickr are on ‘fave’ exchanges. They give each other faves without even looking at the image.

        A useless screenshot ad for a useless virtual dew-dad gets over 200 faves while a complex work of art gets 30.

        The peril of life as a numbers game is tyranny of mediocrity.

      3. I so completely see this happening everywhere. Really frustrating. While I do not exactly look at my writing as art (I thrive on making people laugh and often at the sixth grade writing level-ha!) I KNOW that if I played the numbers game my stats would look waaaay different. But I have decided to take the stance of being selective in who I read and make my “likes” and my comments 100% authentic. I feel too guilty for liking something I haven’t even read or viewed. With that comes a bit of conflicting pain: realizing what a speck I am in the social media world because we are all so busy and only have so much time in the day to really engage in reading other work out there. I have to constantly go back to my original intent in writing publicly: a place to place my words and a place to be held accountable for doing work that I love. Back to what you said: if you reach ONE person in a positive way (and authentic manner) it’s all worth it.

      4. Well…I’ve always been a small speck in the overall majesty of the universe and even the large specks are only big because a bunch of small specks decide to focus on them for the few seconds that we are actually alive…

        I hope that helps…I need to have an existential crisis now….
