I want to shout my little yawp from the rooftops, but yeah, there’s not a lot to say.
I did see my parents this weekend, which was nice. Good to catch up. They were very excited about my interviews. I am too. It will be nice once I have these interviews and I can nail down whether I have a job offer from them or not.
Also, we had an excellent improv show. If we can get more than 8 people to show up in the audience, that would be really nice.
I was thinking about pro sports, and how they’re really pretty silly, right? Two arbitrary teams compete in this arbitrary competition, and you cheer for the one that happens to come from the city you live in. But given that they’re silly, they’re kind of perfect, because they provide some filler to life. Ooh, I just thought of a good analogy!
People are like colored flashlights, all right? You want to mix colors together and make new brighter colors and so on. But it’s like people are flashlights outside with nothing around. If you have no substance, you can’t reflect off of anything. Pro sports, for example, provide some dust in the air. If you and another person are hanging out, and just shining your lights out there, nothing happens. But if the air is all dusty, you can kind of see the beam that you each shoot, (like lightsabers!) and then you can interact. Similarly, if you have something to talk about, some experience that you share, then that gives meaning to your interaction, even if the experience itself (watching a football game) is meaningless. The worth of an interaction is measured not only through the strength of the lights but also by the amount of dust in the air.
Fair metaphor? Even if it means I equated people with flashlights, which sounds like goddamn Successories nonsense?
