this world’s too old to hate you and too young to give up spring

alright! alright! i can't do it tonight. i have been sitting here looking at the wall and thinking of something to write for the last 20 minutes. i have now grown bored with myself and need a new setting. so tonight we will settle for a blast from the past. as some of you may or may not know i have about a dozen journals (now full) that i have written in for the last 15 or so years. every now and again i pull them down and take a gander. today's selection comes circa 1996 when i was only 21. it surprised me how poignant (albeit slightly cliche and cheesy) it was for me to have thought this back then. and of course i am aware that i possibly didn't write it and only copied it from some self help book of my mom's, but still it meant something then and i understand it better now. so hang on tight, here we go....


1. you will be given a username, you may love it or hate it but it will be yours for the duration of the trip.
2. you will be presented with a series of lessons
3. each lesson will be presented to you in sequence.
4. a lesson is always repeated until learned, try not to take too long.
5. learning never ends
6. "there" is no better than "here". learn to love the place you are in.
7. other are only mirrors of yourself.
8. what you ultimately make of your life is entirely up to you.
9. all the answers to all of lifes problems lie within you.
10. you will forget all of this tomorrow.
