And so it is...

Man...life sure can change within the span of a year and a half. Golly.

Now I get it.

When you finally realize that inside, everyone is as paranoid and insecure and worried and out-of-their-minds as you are, life gets a little easier. Not much, but at least, there's that feeling of, "Oh, we're all in this together."

Even the biggest assholes in the world are human. And so are the people we love the most.

It's so hard to fully grasp that, in either case.

Also, a PSA: Read Atonement by Ian McEwan. You will be happy you did.

Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan=the sexiest fuckin' creature on Earth, male or female. Or both. Or neither.

I need to save the world.

OK, guys, I don't know what has come over me today, but I'm in the craziest mood I've been in in...at least a week. :P

Actually, this mood is a rare one, because it's an angry mood, and I'm not so sure where it came from. For the last few hours, it's been building (ever since I realized I have no idea where my Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm DVDs are--haha) and I'm not sure how I can make it go away.

I was reading a news article online about how two dudes got into a fight at Tanger Outlets this morning over some shoes and the cops had to be called in, and I got pissed. Then my Mom told me about her co-worker who bought 4 tvs, a camera, and a GPS this morning at Target, and I got more pissed. It's so futile, getting pissed at the stupid shit that other people do, you know, because I can never control it, and the majority of people are always going to do stupid shit like spend money they don't have on things they don't need, and start bullshit fights with each other.

I have never felt more like escaping Earth than I do right now. Because leaving America just doesn't cut it anymore. This ridiculous corporate greed has spread from our country all over the world, and I'm sick of it. But it's not like I can combat it in anyway. I mean, for chrissake, I had two cups of Starbucks today. What a fucking hypocrite I am.

I realize that American culture is American culture, and I can't escape it, but I want to give something back, so I won't feel like such a soulless asshole anymore. Journalism is an undertaking that I believe does give back (as long as it's not ridiculous celebrity gossip crap), but there's always part of me that wants to do non-profit work too. I can't decide.

(While in the middle of writing this, I decided I wanted to be a lawyer, and looked up international law, and now I want to do that too.)

I'm so indecisive, and so many things piss me off. I know I'm smart and whatever I put my mind to, I'm sure I can help to change, but it's just a matter of picking something and sticking with it. It's completely easy for me to do that with men. I can commit to a guy in a fucking snap, yet I cannot commit to any one cause, one career path.

(no subject)

I smell biscuits or something similar, perhaps stuffing?, baking downstairs. Does anyone else feel like Thanksgiving came mega-early this year? I'm in disbelief.

Today is one of those days where I just don't know anything.

And that's OK.

Things I am in disbelief over:

The Mets losing to the Marlins tonight in the worst way.
The fact that when Endy went to make that catch in left field, it was like a replay of last year's game 7 of the NLCS, only this time it just soared over his head.
The Mets holding a mere 1.5 game lead over the Phils. 4.5 over the Braves. Shiiiiit.

On a more positive note:

My mother is giving my resume to a guy at her office who has TWO children who work for Random House. There's a position in the Children's Publishing department open that I was going to apply for, so he's passing on the resume for me.

My father is giving my resume to his co-worker Steve who has a friend who works for Tennis magazine.

I realize that neither of these positions/companies may work out, but how cool right?

Also I'm talking to that literary agent/NY Times almanac guy, who my boss Alan recommended me to, on the phone tomorrow at 10 a.m. He would really like the chance to work with me. Thinks my resume is impressive. And he works for a publication that has "The New York Times" in its title. Someone pinch me.

I feel like maybe wonderful things are just about to happen, and I'm feeling really confident in myself and my ability to be a successful NYCer.

Did I seriously just write an entry about something other than my romantic angst? That's exciting.
