May I let my voice be a clarion call. I will use these words for justice. I will use these words for truth. And humour.

Busy for the sake of being busy

music: Carole King something

colors: tan

mood: tired

thoughts: remember back in elementary school, when the teacher would hand out worksheets at the end of class to keep the students busy? a.k.a. "busywork"?

Check out this quote from here:
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.
-Ellen Goodman

For all those people who go to college and in the process incur major debts, then run their lives as indentured servants paying off the student loans, followed by another run of indentured servitude to the system, to put away a little money for retirement, the quote above could ring like a clanging gong.

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with working hard, but it would be nice if it weren't just 'any job that pays' but rather what you really want to be doing, and then the money isn't really the object, is it?

Let's rethink everything.

pax hominibus,

Good idea. Let's start with the purtian work ethic worms they stick in our brains in grade school, then get rid of 'cleanliness is next to godlessness", then toss out all the purity laws and requirments that come with holy books.
Let's change "if you have time to lean, you have time to clean' into "stay on the scene, like a sex machine" as the new work mantra!
Embrace your inner Lebowski!
