Wondering Mind

I finally recieved a package I've been waiting for today. It contained a book of poetry by Serj Tankian (lead singer of System of a Down) called Cool Gardens. I am a very big fan of S.O.A.D and love their musical style both lyrically and melodiously but this book is ... WOW! I've only read a few of the poems but can already state some of my favorites: Three of which are Soil and Metaphor and Mer. These are both copyrighted so I don't think I'll be able to reproduce them on this blog without permission but I shall but a quote from Mer.

I'll take organized patterns of chaos over the chaotic oganizations of man, any day.- Serj Tankian
After this sentence I let my wandering mind wonder. I hadn't done that for a long time and I suddenly bumped in to an epiphany of sorts (which also happens to be common knowledge but it was the first time I truly understood the profundity of it).

I (or we, people or any one person) is not as insignificant as they may make themselves feel. We are able to influence so much by merely speaking, acting, thinking and feeling. We can influence others through these things and people often take these things for granted. While we shouldn't live life for anyone but ourselves, we need to take into consideration the feelings of others before we act. Being frank is a both a blessing and a curse and words are such a powerful thing.

Think about that.

Until later.

I'm in a bit of a situation at the moment. A place I have avoided all my life and now I'm stuck right in the middle of it.

I'm in a rut.

I've recently realized that I have a very big problem finishing... anything and the last thing I finished (for myself) was high school. I usually finish thigs for others though, that's never a problem. I'm Miss Productivity when it comes to everyone but me. I have a habit of making lots of plans but never following through. And it sucks ass to be blunt. Everyone around me is going somewhere while I'm stuck stagnant somewhere between here and there and I can't seem to move either way.
