~ an entire generation pumping gas ~

Today I feel like going home and eating ice cream.

And watching Fight Club.

You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive.

And dancing to Calibretto 13.
I don't like the lies you’re trying to make me believe. You call me a loser, lower my self esteem. Well I'm a child of God and I know he loves me. I won’t buy your lies and I won’t be deceived. I know that I am a child of the great I Am and I don't care what you might do, to hell with you…

But I will finish my day, and I will go home and eat a healthy meal with my family and watch the new episode of Lost, and then I will read a chapter or two toward my Master's paper, and I will talk with God and get a good night's sleep. And tomorrow I will try, try again.

Wow...sounds like disenchantment is making the rounds again. There are many of us in our 20's in this same situation - basically just filling a role at work, trying to figure out what all that build-up was in high school and college about 'study hard so you can get a good job'...maybe we could start a support group - hey, you'd be great at this! You could fashion Kim Roth's 12-Step Program For The Disenchanted. I would TOTALLY attend! :)RDA

see... this is why I depend on you to be a creative muse! btw ~ I was listening to your CD in the car this morning, and the screen door song (as you can see, I clearly have the song names memorized...) was very encouraging. Thanks for that!

That's always good to hear. Thanks. :)

Seriously though...how difficult would it be for a group of us to live communally - pool at least some of our resources, split expenses, sacrifice now for the reward later...? Well, semi-seriously. :) But it's at least worth talking about...hmm, please tune in to my blog in a couple hours...

COMMUNE ... Count me in! And all the little children we adopt will play with wodden toys and we can grow our own vegetables ... :o)

ha...ha... yeah, Rachel, I must warn you that Angelika and I have been planning the whole commune thing for awhile now... don't get our hopes up...

Andrea said...

Um. A commune. Maybe. Yes, it just might work.

Okay, I'm in.

It would be an adjustment seeing that I strive to create lots of little communities instead of striving for that one big one. I would be tempted though...
