Would it be good or bad to know what one wanted out of life?  Would that feel freeing or restrictive?  I don’t know what I want out of tomorrow, let alone the next few months or years and so for the moment I fill my life with trivia.  I read books that aren’t for class or related to my studies.  I plan projects that serve no practical purpose.  I fill my days but with things that are ultimately directionless.  

In the next few months, I’m going to construct a giant game of Snakes and Ladders.  I feel nearly as calm thinking about this plan as I feel when I fall asleep with all my homework completed.

so i was gonna respond to this and then my comment started getting HUGE so i took it over to my blog (i wasn’t sure if you wanted to be linked so i erred on the side of privacy) and then it got sort of out of control and turned into a manifesto of sorts. which you can read here:
