Alright. It's a journal so I won't say much about the content. Except a general recommendation: write some stuff that's not about yours...

Interests
I was made for the old world, for the flood. I do not come in pairs.

I'm not the man I thought I was. Not the man I think I am. It is deeply disturbing to see a stranger in the mirror. When I lift my hand he does not lift his. When I furrow my brow he shakes his head. When I speak he interrupts.

There is inherent in the human soul or psyche or whatever you call it a dichotomy. I say dichotomy and not duality because in my experience it is more often a conflict than any sort of harmonious difference. I sometimes get along with me. It seems that way, at least. Probably I've only made a truce out of convenience, because I'm hatching some plot against myself or I need to recover from the last one.

This is natural. If you don't live like this you're a liar. If you don't, and you're not lying but genuinely not at any sort of odds with yourself, I admire you but I do not understand you at all. We might derive from entirely separate races. By races I do not mean I come from Canada and you come from Somalia so we're different races. I mean like I'm a dog and you're a mountain.

That's not to say I've never had moments of peace. I'm generally content with my life and with my decisions, in fact. This is the man I think I am. The man I actually am prefers still waters so he doesn't thrash but drowns tranquilly.

God that sounds melodramatic. Really I'm drinking hot chocolate house-sitting for a best friend more wonderful than I deserve. I've got a solid job and I'm writing often which is my only redemption and I have very few complaints at all about anything. I'm too stubborn to suffer a real identity crisis and too easily amused to sustain any kind of depression. Probably I make things sound worse because it makes me feel more important. Whatever.

The world didn't end. It never does.

The site is sorely lacking for the absence of your face.

The site ever tries harder at not trying so hard I might become less frigid toward it. Almost certainly not.
