how amazing would this job be?
this guy is a legend…. i cannot even imagine how happy i’d be if i had this job.
i have the best followers.
wakeupinthewind started following you

i’m willing to bet you’re ridiculously good looking.
you’re the champion, here. <3
thanks a million!
it’s something i can easily do to add consistency to my posts in my own style.
also, i’m incredibly lazy.
hey, anon. how are you? i’m glad.
thank you for the compliments! but no thank you for the blog hate!
my deepest condolences on your disappointment with my blog. it’s admittedly not that upsetting that you’re not impressed with my posts. but please note, i appreciate your usage of the oxford comma - i’m a big fan of it myself!
i do complain, bitch, AND whine. i also eat many different kinds of cheeses, but this is an entirely different affair which will be dealt with at-length in a separate & appropriately titled post.
i cannot contest the fact that everyone has problems. but i can contest the fact that i bitch, complain, AND whine “about EVERYTHING” because, if i may point out that i have never complained about the admittedly slow speed in which the local Chili’s prepares my burger bites, mostly because i know it’s all worth it in the end but partly because i don’t see my blog as a proper platform to complain about restaurant preparation times. see, there your argument begins to show its fallacious roots. i hate to be that guy that just sits around, pointing out fallacies, but my own blog is at stake (yum, steak…) - you must understand!
also, it’s ginger-ale-calibre-refreshing to finally receive hatred with absolutely no relation to my sexuality. it almost brings tears to my eyes, but as i’ve previously discussed, i am incapable of producing tears.
this blog is purely cathartic in nature unless otherwise stated. i make no apologies for blogging in a self-consumed manner, or in a manner that often requires bitching - when i complain about something here, i move on in real life.
my motto is: i blog therefore i am.
i blog not for monetary gain, nor critical approval, so it is the purest form of art. discuss.
I’d like to do a psychological and sociological investigation about the online culture that comes from allowing anonymous commenting. It’s funny how some people only get bold when they aren’t going to have to really face the consequences of their statements.
i’d pay money to see this. especially if it were in imax.
i appreciate your opinion and thank you for saying my post was well written, but sadly you’re anonymous and your argument is invalid.
however, for the sake of argument, i’ll play along.
if you’d refer back to the post, i specifically say that their problems are SUBJECTIVE. wikipedia defines subjectivity as “a subject’s personal perspective, feelings, beliefs, desires or discovery, as opposed to those made from an independent, objective, point of view” so their problems with reputation or image in a public sphere are as important to them as a poor person’s problems with simple needs like food and shelter.
i never said that objectively their problems are far more important or dire in the grand schema of things. but to each individual person, their problems are the most important.
and i never said i was okay with my materialism. it’s something i acknowledge and i want to work through. your personal attacks, while poignant, are unnecessary.
when i post about my troubles, i am doing so with complete candor. in return, i would only ask the same of you. but sadly, you do not grant me this favor because you’re acting anonymously. i’m working through a lot of stuff right now personally and this blog is how i do that. my own form of self-discovery comes about through writing. as i write, i discover more and more about myself and i just choose not to filter it. i’m sure a lot of people experience a lot of the same thoughts or problems i encounter, but they don’t go around blogging about it like i do. it takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there and i do expect this kind of flack for my complete candor.
Batten down the hatches.
a lot of the media i consume is about wealthy people.
for instance, i thoroughly enjoy mystery literature especially when written by Agatha Christie. not only does she craft fascinating mysteries, but these mysteries are often centered around deeply flawed and incredibly wealth individuals. it seems that every story starts out with someone going on holiday, or they made their wealth and they retire at the age of 35 because life is ‘simply too much’. i’m fascinated that an entire culture can be painted in that way. but that’s assuming that the characters represented in her stories are synecdoches for the rest of the UK - and that’s a big, big assumption.
one of my favorite novels of all time is The Great Gatsby. we almost read it for american literature (please note we read Huckleberry Finn instead, much to my chagrin…) in high school, and i heard enough about it to be interested. so i went and bought it and read it on my own accord. i felt a deep connection to how incredibly flawed and wealthy jay gatsby was - and how he attained his wealth through unknown and illegitimate means to impress a woman.
and then there’s gossip girl. now, please reserve judgment - i know what you’re thinking. gossip girl is just a silly show about a bunch of spoiled rich youngsters who do not have real problems. i’m not sorry when i say that no matter how wealthy people are, everyone suffers ‘the human condition’. sure, they don’t have to wonder where their next meal comes from or how they are going to stay warm during the winter, but then again people who have these worries don’t have the stress of reputation and the constant strain of public attention either. in fact, their problems often have simpler solutions even if the consequences of failure are more dire. i find the ‘problems’ experienced by the gossip girl characters to be highly subjective in nature. to us “common folk” or “middle class citizens”, the reputation or image of an incredibly wealthy person matters little in the grand scheme of things, but to the aristocrat in question, this is often their primary concern and feels just as dire as a warm place to stay or a hot meal. who are we to say that someone else’s problems matter least?
but i digress. i think my fascination with incredibly flawed aristocracy stems from my curious obsession with seeing decadence contrasted with misery.
an excellent example would be how taken i was with American Horror Story. the beautiful mansion built by a surgeon to the stars with a dark, dark history of misery. opulent as this house was, it embodied the absolute essence of evil.
i’ve been known to be a fairly material person. i like having nice things - i mean who doesn’t? but on a serious note, i’m flawed in that i seek happiness through having things. it’s an annoying affliction when you’re broke all the time from coffee and cigarettes and live music, but such is my life, my choices. i think maybe i enjoy seeing flawed rich people so much because it means that i don’t have to be rich to be happy. possibly my subconscious is trying to make me see that no matter the material wealth, it does not mean that these aristocrats are any happier than the rest of us.
so this is my brain trying to assuage any feelings of being left out of this upper crust? that they’ve got as many - maybe even more - problems than i do? i’m gonna go with that and be a lot happier about my obsession. hey brain: thanks for helping me get over this material obsession.
