I think I am kind.

September 06 2014

My favorite Listserve email was from Luke Neff on June 7, 2012. It was the fifth Listerve I ever got, and I loved it so much that I decided I would do something similar if I ever won the lottery. A little over two years later, here I am. Thanks for the idea, Luke. :)

"What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person."

…56 translations later we get:

Comic idea

Workers are clearing a road. They start bulldozing through a hill and bones start spilling out.
“What do we do, boss?” Boss shrugs. They’re on a timetable, so they should keep going.

Later, a worker cuts into a steak. Tiny bones start spilling out.
A worker does laundry. When he lifts up a portion to put in the wash, a skull tumbles out.
A workers mows his lawn. Instead of grass clippings, bones spray out.

The road is abandoned.

What actually drives happiness: relationships, unique experiences, feeling self-validated, achieving personal goals.

And again: I wonder how much our current mental state is dependent upon our ability to imagine a happy/fulfilling, realistic future?

in the future, we must pick what information to store in our brains.
love? emotions? do extra abilities take precedence over those?

Sometimes at night I get so lonely I cry. I browse the internet through my tears, searching for people who hold the same opinions I do or share stories of things I have experienced, just to feel a connection to someone.

i'm glad you aren't as sad as you used to be
but you're a lot less creative now

I love biking, ice skating, crocheting, drawing, and programming. When I was eleven, I wanted to be a pediatric oncologist. I became a software engineer. I dislike avocados. I've dealt with crushing depression. I'm passionate about accessibility, blood/bone marrow donation, hospice care, and mental health awareness.

Feel free to email me with fragments of your life. :)
