So, how's life been there for everyone?
For me it's been every literally every day at the fire hall. Monday, Wed. Thurs., Fri, and this past weekend Sunday to be a victim for a huge drill. I feel like I haven't had a minute to sit.
I don't want to rant about the fire hall because I do have fun and the people are awesome, so I'll change the subject to what's really annoying me lately. Why would anyone want to live in a subdivision?
EVERYTHING is the same. It's like the 50's crawled out of it's grave like a zombie. I watch people scurry into their homes every time I drive be these places. Right from the car through the garage door and into the little safe abode. Maybe i'm just nuts, but how the hell can we hate interaction this freaking much? And that's coming from someone who's pretty damn introverted most of the time! I feel like there's no sense of community anymore, even at Alfred their wasn't. I understand that people want to be alone sometimes, and that's fine. I need a decent chunk of time alone to recharge myself.
Not sure if anyone's ever seen the show on WNED ( I think?) "Victory Garden" is the name, I think. They travel around showing off gardens of these beautiful homes and showing how they went about it. If you haven't, it's a cool show. Anyhow, they've shown these community gardens before, where people can basically throw together food plots, flower plots or any other type of plants. They've even done it in the city with rooftop gardening(Which is really nice!).
Maybe i'm just rambling incoherently and making an ass out of myself. (Quite possibly the case.) I just feel like there's no love for your fellow man anymore. I think the root of this post is from that accident where everyone stared as an old man was the victim of a hit and run, but still man, where's the love? Well, that's all for now I guess.
Well, here's my song lyrics for the evening:
"Here I sit so fucking shy
wondering what's going through your mind
or what you're even like
as time ticks quickly by
a life so short, incomplete
so many people I'd like to meet
feeling awkward, afraid
potential friends I could've made
why do we keep to ourselves
and not dare to leave our fucking shells
let our feelings and emotions blend
we could be the best of friends" Youth Of Today "Potential Friends"
Yeah... Signing off, and hoping someone will actually realize they don't need to scurry off when another human being comes their way, Adrius.
