Last night I dreamed about school. I only remember a series of images like notebook paper and stuff. It wasn’t vivid and I didn’t reality check.
Puta, no llamame.
Tonight I will be aware of my surroundings.
I will soon be dreaming.
I might as well just tattoo black circles under my eyes. They’re always there anyway, so why not? …
Mrs. Wilson: So did you all make a lot of progress in your IWBs?
Today, or more like 30 minutes ago, I opened up my macbook power charger because it broke and I wanted to see inside. It was really hard to get into, but after some stabbing with a screwdriver (one which went into my hand) I saw the inside which looked like a lot of little wires and circular things. But then on this copper colored plate I saw a finger print. Now, to see if it was mine or not, I imprinted my own. I noticed that mine was a ‘whirl’ while the unknown finger print was a ‘loop’.
I realized that the finger print must have come from the person who assembled the charger. A person who doesn’t know me, and I don’t know them. A person with a family, and a life, far far from where I live (the charger was made in China). I felt like in some weird way I had a connection through this meaningless finger print.
So, to that person in China who manufactures macbook power chargers, I thank you. I know we’ll never meet, but thank you for allowing me to see that behind every product is a person who worked tirelessly to make it.
Okay so currently I’m reading House of the Spirits for school, but I got to thinking that my assignment in reading this book has turned out to be similar to the U.S. national debt crisis. Now, I love politics, and don’t get me wrong I like reading too, but this isn’t a book I’d choose to read.
Anyway the national debt, what started off as a simple “spend now, pay later” deal has turned into a “OMG we’re spending to much, but we can’t stop!!11!” panic, just as my reading assignment has turned from a ”read 7 pages a day starting in June” to “read 100 pages a day for three days” in order to finish the book on time. Now currently as I type this, the U.S. national debt is $14,625,495,580,313.23, which I don’t know about you, but that’s a lot. And it’ll be very hard to reduce that dramatically in the future, but it can be done.
So to me it seems finishing this book is almost as much as a climb as to fixing our debt crisis (and it’s a huge crisis indeed). Fortunately for me, I have a timeline for which I need to complete this by, and the U.S. doesn’t. But I think if I can finish this book in time(which I probably won’t), then the U.S. can get its act together and fix our debt crisis.
Good luck to us both…
How kind, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Maybe l8r. ;)
