thevmonologues: “My friends couldn’t understand what I saw in you and while I can’t put my finger on it now, I can say with confidence that their constant disapproval couldn’t have dissuaded me back then. I’m not sure if this says something about how much I loved you or about how narrow and ignorant I can be when I want someone badly enough.”

It must be so hard being you. It’s always trying to be decisive, to say what you know deep down is right even at the risk of coming off less-than-perfect, to cut a cord when you’re not entirely sure what you want. We’re together.

The Chest Cavity
1: "It just creates and then fulfills a series of needs."
2: “That’s all it does?”
2: “So why is it so sensitive? It’s not like it’s conscious.”
1: “It has a degree of choice but not nearly to the same extent as a certain other machine.”
2: “How do you mean?”
1: “It creates lists.”
1: “Yes, lists. It orders the things it wants to do and then does them, in order of what it defines as most important to it.”

It decides whether or not it’s more important to you to spend time with the ones you love than it is to be at work. It decides whether or not it’s more important to you to pay your bills than do the things you’d rather be doing.”
2: “Bloody hell.”
1: “You know what the worst part is?”
1: “This isn’t the first time I’ve been called down here to fix it.”
2: “It breaks often?”
1: “Not often. But it does break. I’ve seen ones that have broken too often or too much. Held together with bits of tape and string. A great sheet of nothing wrapped around, just so they can hold it together.”
2: “Could that happen to this one?”
1: “It has the words ‘Anything Can And Quite Often Does Happen.’ inscribed across the front. What do you think?”
2: “I think it’s insane.”

1. Time doesn’t fill me. I fill time. Deadlines and time frames establish parameters, but typically not in a good way. The average person who is given two weeks to complete a task will instinctively adjust his effort so it actually takes two weeks. Forget deadlines, at least as a way to manage your activity. Tasks should only take as long as they need to take. Do everything as quickly and...

Advice for the Young Ones
1. Knowing what you don’t want can often be more valuable than knowing what you do want. 2. Despite what it looks like on someone’s Facebook or Twitter, no one has it figured out. We’re all just slapping things against a wall and seeing what sticks. 3. Beating yourself up about a mistake you made is only going to make you more inclined to do it again. Just accept that it happened and move on. ...
