I don’t like reading the news. It depresses me.
I need to make some changes in my life. Over the course of the past few months I’ve gotten in the bad habit of thinking about nothing. What this does is prevent me from doing. Doing a lot. Being a lot. Thinking is pretty nice and all, but only when there are problems. Thinking about things that don’t require fixing is just a waste of time. In my opinion. As I type these words. Ironical as hell.
So over the past few weeks I’ve been indulging in thoughts and behaviors that are regressive. Regressive because I’ve lost more than I’ve gained with them. They have brought me absolutely no where. Except backwards. Action. Action. Action. Life is action.
Who do I want to be? A great student. Someone who studies his material. What does that mean? Read a lot. Just know it. Don’t obsess over it. Sometimes this is hard when you study philosophy. It’s not like other facts that you can toss to the side because they don’t apply to every context. Philosophy really does apply to every context and it’s hard to stop yourself from constantly seeing these connections.
It’s beautiful out today. Like, unbelievable.
