I'm goin' home

You know how they're always talking about being the same person we once were but different because of the circumstances we're in. That we don't change as people because the core or crux of the person is always the same and unchanging like a rock. That's bullshit. I don't have the same pair of eyes as the one-second old me did (or however long it takes a newborn to open his or her eyes). That dumb punk wouldn't have looked at a dead honeybee and gaped at it in awe. She wouldn't have imagined a hundred different ways of manipulating the situation to give it a new perspective which she would then take photographs of, edit and put up to show her friends the way her mind works. (It's a fucked up generation that we're living in. Social awkwardness is the best norm.) That little punk didn't know a goddamn thought was and all (Yes, I'm rereading Catcher in the Rye).

We got the whole picture wrong is what we don't get. We change every second that we're alive in this world in. (Note: Kill me if I'm in a coma I can't get out of.) Change is the best thing we've got going for us as a race. And they're out to tell us otherwise. It's all a big conspiracy. It's only human nature that sticks. And it's making me call it quits. Take me home.

some things change. some things don't. when you talk about the core, it doesn't change. but to say it behaves the same at all times won't be appropriate either. try to generalize a wee bit less! that is where we go wrong.

Change is the best thing we've got going for us as a race: that is true. but say the entire race stopped caring for each other and joined cannibalism. would that be, well in your words going for us? :)

attagirl. the way i see it, you deserve a break from the monotone.
take it! :)

The only constant in life is change. But there is no hard line. People vary, some change abruptly, some change with time, and still some dont change at all. Perhaps that in itself is a change.

We just have to take people as they come.
