I spent years thinking about this show, Read All About it. I remember that we can only watch it at school. Our grade 2 teacher would order from the school board and we would all sit around and watch this show. My brother ended up finding it online for me. Man that miracle of the internet. I gotta watch all the episodes.
We have a mish mash of tastes, some of us care about our future, some don't think about it. We are all bunch of grown up kids, we have the Peter Pan syndrome and just don't want to grow up. A lot of our peers have great corporate jobs, have a condo, married or getting married, have kids or planning to have kids. Most of us don't have any of these things and some of us hardly think about it. We sometimes do bad things, and we would congratulate each other for doing bad things.
I take pride that I'm not a wholesome person, I like that I am sometimes a degenerate, I like that make irresponsible decisions, I like that I can be self destructive. Well maybe I shouldn't speak for my friends, but I'm definitely happy being an outcast.
I am always weary of saying anything negative to a person. Especially someone in my profession. First of all I whole heartedly believe that you should treat people the way you like to be treated. So I don't like negative statements made towards me, I would avoid doing that to others. The second reason is, negative statements often generate a great deal of motivation.
For me I know that creatively, if someone said I'm no good at something or put me down I would be out for revenge. I will try my best to prove that person different, and I'll never let that go.
So if I said a negative statement to someone I would think that I am giving then a surge in motivation to prove me different. Not all people would react this way, but the hungry ones that's just the jump start that they need to perform at a higher level.
So watch what you say, or sometimes you have to say what needs to be said and be the asshole to motivate someone. I guess that's why silence is golden, because it's easy and hard at the same time.
Jasmine asked Norm, when are you going home. Norm replied well Vancouver is my home. Then he said something to the effect of home has a different context depends on who is asking and when.
The notion of home is interesting.
When I travel I get home sick very easily. I used to always look west and image myself just zooming my way out west, like in a movie sequence and arriving home. Thinking about that just gives me a nice familiar feeling.
