Archive post #14. Thanks for your patience. More tragedies are being produced right now and I can assure you that of the remaining 30, you will probably enjoy at least 15, if you’re anything like my cats.
I’ve had an article entitled “7 Steps to Finishing What You Started” open in a tab for a week now.
Wishing we were invited to this party.
“happiness in intelligent people, is the
rarest thing i know” — ernest hemingway
oh, old hemingway, i bet you’ve heard about him and his stories a million times
and you’ve probably heard this quote too
and now i want you to forget about it
write it down on a piece of paper and then burn it—
burn the paper and burn the memory of this quote
(do it when you’re done reading this poem, because i might mention it again, so it’d be useless doing it already)
stop romanticizing sadness; stop
thinking that being happy means you’re stupid
when your friend tells you a joke: laugh,
laugh until your stomach aches and your insides are fluttering and shaking and you’re dizzy
shoot water at your little brother; hit your cousin with a pillow — battle for fun and laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh
every day. stop thinking that being happy means you’re stupid
“happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing i know” — ernest hemingway
be the exception for that rule. no wait,
ruin that rule
you can be intelligent and happy; you can see all the downsides and difficulties with our culture and society and
world, but also be able to see the beauty of life
plants. stars. oceans.
go out and smile, go out and
laugh, go out and
and now go burn that fucking quote
Yeah, girl! Use that tongue on that jello shot like you’re suckin’ on a dick!
—Overheard in the French Quarter
do you ever just stare at yourself in the mirror in your underwear and get sad
sad that no ones around to see me hell yea
I AM SUPER CHILL ALL THE TIME!
