Truth is like poetry. And most people fucking hate poetry.

De la película The Big Short.

There was a man of double deed,
Who sowed his garden full of seed;
When the seed began to grow,
‘Twas like a garden full of snow;
When the snow began to melt,
‘Twas like a ship without a belt;
When the ship began to sail,
‘Twas like a bird without a tail;
When the bird began to fly,
‘Twas like an eagle in the sky;
When the sky began to roar,
‘Twas like a lion at my door;
When my door began to crack,
‘Twas like a stick across my back;
When my back began to smart,
‘Twas like a penknife in my heart;
And when my heart began to bleed,
‘Twas death, and death, and death indeed.



Odio la marihuana. La odio incluso más que a las drogas duras. He enseñado en escuelas secundarias durante 25 años y odio lo que la marihuana le hace a mis alumnos. Va más allá de que no hagan la tarea. Mis alumnos se vuelven menos curiosos cuando comienzan a fumar marihuana. Lo he visto una y otra vez. La gente dice que la marihuana te hace más creativo, pero por lo que he visto, le cierra la mente a mis alumnos, al punto en que sólo hacen referencia al mundo en relación a la droga. Dicen cosas como: “Fui a la playa y me súper fumé”, o “Fui a un recital y me fumé todo”. Empiezan a elegir a sus amigos basados en la droga. Odio cuando la gente dice que es sólo para experimentar. Porque por lo que he visto, es entonces cuando mis alumnos dejan de experimentar.

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.

If I want to get hired to do something, I should already be doing it. People can’t always see potential energy. Instead of allowing a current job description to stand in the way, turn off the Scrubs re-runs and start a side-project. Draw a picture, code a site, or write something and share it with the internet.
