But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
I realized recently that while I do enjoy writing and though I write a great deal it is not “writing.” It’s blogging or journaling or some other form of self-expression. It is rarely writing as a craft, which is something I’m determined to work on. Dialogue, abstract, description, really anything random that I can think of I want to write.
Of course, trying new styles and stepping out of my comfort zone will probably bring about some pretty bad stuff, initially. And that’s okay. I need to be comfortable with sucking and getting beyond that initial feeling of fear of failure. Then I can keep moving So… that’s what’s ahead for this page. Mixed with the usual writings and random music and movie gifs and Jenna Coleman pictures.
If you’re ever going to be a good writer, then you probably tend to be afraid you’re a bad writer. Instead of trying to prove you’re good, try to prove you’re bad. At least the ball will start MOVING on the field. I always tell young writers, “start proving to yourself how bad you are.” Make a joke out of it. Write a draft that you know you’re going to throw in the garbage, or show to your friends for a laugh, a profanely irresponsible piece of shit draft that in which you absolutely fight for the team that you REALLLy believe in - the one that says you stink. Pretend your Mom keeps asking you “why don’t you just finish something,” and write the thing designed to shut her the fuck up. THIS is why I don’t just do it, Mom, because it would look like THIS, this thing that SUCKS. Show her. Don’t even waste time on it, the faster you go, the more it will suck and the more you’ll win the fight against yourself. Because the truth is, we do suck… because “we” is our ego, and our job is to get that ego to stop blocking us.
Jon Stewart Goes After Fox in Powerful Ferguson Monologue
I been waiting for the daily show to come back so they could cover this
Jon rip them boys a new asshole
See, Jon Stewart usually does a lot of satirical humour, but at this point, the writers are just like “fuck the comedy this shit is real” and I was so happy to see that they finally covered this, and it was really well done.
Fox News is an absolute joke. How anyone takes their reporting seriously is beyond me.
This reporting is as sad as it is objective and fair.
We all wanna be giants, But our heads are too heavy from the mess that we’re in We all wanna have patience And we want it right now gettin’ tired of waitin’ We all wanna make progress, And we sufferin’ runnin’ in circles again
“I develop oddly deep emotional connections to people in my life that are one-sided. I may just be a passing character to them. I don’t know what that is. I don’t know why that is. I can have one encounter with somebody and feel very connected to them and read a lot into that. They become very important people to me, but to them I may just be like, “Oh yeah, we talked that one time, right?” To me it’s a live-changing moment that bonded us; to them, it was a five-minute polite chat in passing”
