Don’t ask me to apologize
I won’t ask you to forgive me
If I’m gonna go down
You’re gonna come with me
Hand in hand.
This doesn’t do much to explain my belief system unless I’m explaining through opposites. (Good band name, Explaining thru Opposites)
I’ve always secretly wanted to be the sort of vindictive person who would get revenge on anyone who crossed me, but being a fundamentally decent person really got in the way of that. Singing along to this song lets me indulge my repressed vengeful side without adversely impacting my Karma.
I don’t need special quotations and songs to explain what I believe, really.
Pay attention, and don’t be a douche.
You’d think not being a douche would be the hard part, but for me it’s paying attention that is a challenge. I’m sure there are people out there who would argue that I don’t do a great job about not being an asshole either, but I’m MUCH worse at indulging my ethereal side and letting my mind be anywhere but in the present.
This is partly because I have a really good imagination, but it’s also the sign of someone who might get a wee bit over-analytical about things that either happened in the past or might happen at some point in the future. Neither of which are all that helpful to me when I live in the present. Which I try to do. Sometimes it can be fun to imagine, which is the lure, but other times it’s just overindulging the already dark corners of my brain too much and I really don’t need extra emphasis on what’s bad, possibly might become bad or what was bad in the past.
So I drag my brain back from wherever it wanders of to and remind myself that Now is the place to be.
Time to be.
You know, I really don’t see why I can’t just hit people sometimes.
Hit them, I mean.
But sometimes I really want to.
Not a punch in the face,
but a good, hard body check would be soooo emotionally and physically satisfying if someone annoys me.
Just Hulk Smash someone into a wall.
Maybe it’s time to check into taking hockey lessons….
They frown on body checking where I work.
