I Am Two People

June 3, 2014

Here is the most common conundrum of the modern age: Identity!  We wonder why mental illness and other assorted things run rampant in this day and age.  Yes, I know part of it is because society sucks and doesn’t like to help people as much as it should, but it’s also probably somehow linked to our internet lives.  So many people just dish and dish on the gossip on their fb pages, but some of them don’t even leave their houses and don’t truly live. Others use social media to observe trends and post anonymousish blogs, but could possibly be the most outgoing people you could meet and nobody would be the wiser.  I myself approach each social media, each forum, each youtube video from a completely different place. And therefore, I can truly say I am two people.  How can I not say that?  I am quite the conversationalist at times, but twitter doesn’t let you have a conversation, but if you can figure out how to use it truly boosts all of your other online endeavors.  I think a site like tumblr, while quickly losing relevance, was typically a good way to show your truest self, free from judgment or harassment.  Facebook has become a dirty laundry hang up and not a whole lot more, but all the same, your fb persona is typically different than your out in the world persona.  So it’s not actually bad for your mental health to be these characters, or to take on these roles, but just remember part of your true self must always be made to shine, or life will only disappoint you.  Also your online persona is way more interesting if it actually talks about you going out and experiencing things and seeing people and eating something other than Mickey D’s or some sort of boring processed crap.  “Oh my god, good morning internet!  I just brushed my teeth, it was awesome!”  Does your non computerized self always announce such things?  No way. So yes, you are two people, I hate to break it to you.  What you need to keep in mind is that all of these personas make up the whole, and you have to know when to take the masks off, let down your defenses, and put your life on the line.  You will thank me, and you will thank yourself, and you will feel so much better about everything.  Don’t stop having fun being two people, but remember they have to meet somewhere!

Dreams

January 30, 2014

I can’t recall the majority of my dreaming, but when I do it’s fairly vivid.  Whether or not I recall the details or the events, I always seem to know who was in my dream.  And I definitely take a lot of stocking in dreaming, being part of generation screwed, and all that jazz, and I know I’m not the only one.  I’m a one to seek out the path that brings true happiness, with lots of passion and love for this world, anything to further my art, my music, my writing, helping to share my unique cultural perspectives, and desire for great social change in this world.  And I mean that’s a good deal of what this is about, with me writing a blog about my thoughts my feelings, my point of view, sometimes quirky, sometimes well thought out and meticulous, chill and down to earth, awake and dreaming, dreaming and being, being and living, moving and shaking, doing, breaking the sky.  This is what i do and this is what is important, no matter how few may read it.

 So anyways, I had this dream on the weekend, I was hanging out with Carrie Brownstein of Portlandia and Sleater-Kinney, and I was sort of amused and excited that I got to hang out with someone whose work I really admire, and who is just awesome in general, or so I surmise, from my dream and from the fact that she is a comedic genius as well as a kick ass Indie Rocker.  And I would also assume that to be the case because of my dream in which, we must have partied or something. I don’t even know to be honest.  I think i was just way too excited when I woke up and had a dream in which I hung out with her, that it completely slipped me mind what the dream was about other than this fact.  Who do you hang out with in your dreams?
