Depression is stupid and not a thing that makes me a better writer. One time I went a whole year without writing and I stayed in bed and drank. Fuck your Bukowskisms. I want sunlight and love and running down some street I’ve never been on where it’s warm and cool at the same time and I’m smiling. I want nothing to ever be bad again- and I don’t mean that I want a life free of conflict, I mean that I want a life free of meaningless conflict. Not being able to will oneself to take a shower or leave the house is meaningless. There is nothing to be gained, no lesson to be learned from that kind of life. My heart is stale, my prose is stale. Give me fire if you want to hurt me. Give me something I can taste. There’s nothing romantic or mysterious about where I am. There’s nothing here worth holding onto.

My dad just came into my room and shouted at me in Klingon.

Am I more embarrassed that he did that or that I know he said I was a disappointment to the empire?

You should be most embarrassed that you’re a disappointment to the empire.

This pizza place has a very good idea

yes yes yes

The owner, a 28-year Army vet, will even help students with their assignments “to the extent that I can.”
NO, NO, I’M NOT CRYING.

Your criticism sounds to me as if you have read too many critical books and are too smart in an artificial, destructive, and very limited way.

People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

Sometimes hard for the artist to believe this, but good to keep in mind when you’re feeling down on yourself. :)

So I’m watching Hakuouki and (im)patiently waiting for Chizuru to finally use that short sword of hers. She sure gets into a lot of situations where drawing it would be better idea than closing her eyes and screaming.
