I've been thinking. A lot. And reading. A lot. 
My brain works 5478934 miles an hour. 
I have a hard time focusing on one thing for any amount of time.
Because of this I could never be a writer.
But I love that other people write.
I've been the "bad guy" lately. But only because I've been standing up for things that I believe in, and I thought the people I was with believed in also. Its funny how that all works sometimes...

But because of me having to be the "bad guy," I've found more time to read. So here are some things I have been reading lately that I really enjoy.

"We are important and our lives are important, magnificent really, and their details are worthy to be recorded.  This is how writers must think, this is how we must sit down with pen in hand.  We were here; we are human beings; this is how we lived.  Let it be known, the earth passed before us.  Our details are important.  Otherwise, if they are not, we can drop a bomb and it doesn't matter."  
--Natalie Goldberg; Writing Down the Bones

"They danced down the streets like dingle dodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
-Jack Kerouac; On The Road
"Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking.  There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught." 
-J.C. Watts

"I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have.
Maybe it's good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Like Sam sad. Because it's okay to feel things. And be who you are about them."
-Stephen Chbosky; The Perks of Being a Wallflower
