Updates? Naw.

Updating my LiveJournal, after all this time? Seems too good to be true. Which it is. I'm just posting to say that I really don't know when/if I'll start posting regularly... but the account still comes in handy to reply to other people's LJs.

Not Forgotten, Just Ignored...

I've had a lot of stuff going on recently: Possible job interviews, lots of thank you notes to write from graduation, a family reunion... that's why this hasn't been updated for a while. I promise I'll sit down and write something soon.

Graduation... and Suicide

I graduated. Well, whoop-de-shit. I guess the happiness of getting it all over with was spread out over the year, instead of popping out all at once.

However... Sometime this afternoon, a neighbor's kid, who went to my high school, committed suicide. I did not know the family very well, but that doesn't change the fact that I feel intense remorse and sorrow for them. I am frustrated, however, because I cannot say anything that will comfort them.

What could I say? I didn't know the person well enough to comment on them.

My personal beliefs won't make them feel any better. To me, suicide is the worst thing one can do to themselves. I don't believe in an afterlife. This life is all we get. And, no matter how shitty it might seem, it's better than nothing whatsoever. This isn't comforting to hear. I can't lie and say "Well, he's in heaven now". Hearing that doesn't make a loss any better. It just makes them think about suicide themselves.

One of the things I hate the most is to be unable to help ease someone's suffering. I feel awful, but I can't do a damned thing.

In related news, I'll be scanning some of my favorite photos from Photography class to share with you all.

On a completely different topic, "Adaptation" is a fucking awesome movie, and like most Kaufman movies, has a lot of stuff in it you don't realize until you think about it. Especially pertaining to that screenplay writer's lecture...

Just go watch it.

Since everyone else is doing it...

1. Take five books off your bookshelf.
2. Book #1 -- first sentence.
3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page fifty.
4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page one hundred.
5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty.
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book.
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph.

Watch... The imp was afraid now, justifyably afraid of this thing that Kierkan Rufo had become. When the howling stopped, all that could be heard in the 16 was the crackling of the lice that ended up between the fingers of soldiers during and inspection. Brandel's eyes narrowed and his fists clenched. It had, he thought, been well worth waiting for.

A poem.

I wrote this for Creative Writing a few weeks ago. It was for the assignment for at least 100 lines of poetry. I rather suprised myself when I filled the required lines with just a single poem... anyways, here it is.
