I have recently realized that people can be destructive and negative all in the pursuit of a good time. I don’t really know if I want to be part of it anymore. In fact, I know that I don’t want to be. I’m happy in my life right now, overall, and I notice that when I go to parties and/or have late nights I end up feeling like I’ve wasted a night and exhausted myself. Why is it that I get excited before it all, and then I realize that it’s actually no different from the last party that I went to? Well, whatever. I guess I’m just coming to a point where I don’t have much patience for drunken small-talk, and I don’t like watching people (including myself) become strange and uncomfortable all in the name of “good fun”. It’s not really good fun!
Good fun includes: Art, music, conversation, food, humor, the “small stuff” (eg. marshmallows, a hug, etc.), exercise, an occasional drink with friends, and just plain being good to your mind and body.
I will try to practice this kind of fun, actively, and I will update on my reflections.
This Saturday I hope to go see Nickel Creek with my lovely friend Annie. That will be fun. Real fun.
Anyway, that’s all for now…
