It’s almost 4am right now and I cannot sleep. I just turned on “Dead Set” and I’m watching the third episode as I write this. There are 5 in total. The series seems to be okay, we’ll see how it ends. In light of this evenings events and just a general reflection on what has been going on lately in my life I have been thinking a lot about a quote from Socrates that I had a discussion with before with a friend of mine.
I’ve been burdening myself with far too much lately, including a number of things that are not really my burden to bear. I’ve also been racking my brain a lot lately trying desperately to figure things out. It is now at 4am that it has dawned on me. Just like everyone else on this planet, I really truly know nothing. I can’t beat myself up because I can’t find the answers I was looking for. I just need to take comfort in what I do understand and deal with the parts of my life that I can indeed control.
Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a grand epiphany that is making me feel all warm and gooey inside… I still feel like an empty vessel, but I think I am starting to get some direction at least. Ground up.
Actually, I think I’m going to put in a new entry, one more up to the format of my summer work.
By the time anyone sees this I’m sure that entry will be up, So umm.. enjoy, I guess.
