1st day back

i've been sick for a week... today i'll go back to work like the rest of the world.

being a prisoner of my home, i reorganized everything. EVERYTHING. each closet, each corner, even the stove! and, i did way too much diddling online. maybe i should put more interesting things on this blog. other people somehow find the time to do that, so i will consider it.

i was reading through the Mike Giant site, and i liked his bio. it's interesting, simple, and leaves you dying to know more about him and his adventures in art, travel, and experience. how can i become so talented? i want to know the secret:

Birth. Upstate New York. Drawing. New Mexico.
BMX bikes. Heavy Metal. Skateboarding. Punk
rock. Hip-hop. Thailand. College. Dishwasher.

Raves. Lorelei. First tattoo. San Francisco.
Dharma. Think Skateboards. Angi. London.
Adult bookstore. Computer animation.
Tattooing. New York City. Newskool. Skullz
Press. Everlasting. Track bikes. Brooke and Leia.
Tokyo. Tattoo 13. Plum Village. Albuquerque.

Stay Gold. Rebel8. Manifestations. Ordained
minister. Megan. 35. Right here. Right now.


it just reminds me how much time i have ahead of me, and how much one CAN be doing, instead of doing nothing. i'm beginning to realize that being a "functioning member of society" is a much more confusing and misused phrase than people tend to use it as. you can only do so much to promote the betterment of mankind.. but you shouldn't do detrimental things. it's a waste of everyone's time. personal happiness that is inclusive of others seems to be the most motivating lifestyle right now.
