poetic memory

"i am not sure that i exist, actually. i am all the writers that i have read, all the people that i have met, all the women that i have loved; all the cities that i have visited, all my ancestors... perhaps i would have liked to be my father, who wrote and had the decency of not publishing. nothing, nothing, my friend; what have i told you: i am not sure of anything, i know nothing... can you imagine that i not even know the date of my death?"

I’m not interested in a world where men really want to watch porn but resist because they’ve been shamed; I’m interested in a world where men are raised from birth with such an unshakable understanding of women as living human beings that they are incapable of being aroused by their exploitation.

I’m moody as fuck so if you want a relationship/friendship with me understand that there will be days that I will not care for your presence even though you did nothing wrong followed by days where you’ll be the only person that I want to talk to despite having nothing to say.

We need to talk about this moment in “The Ultimate Computer,” just after Spock delivers his verbal fan letter to Dr. Daystrom, when Kirk just reaches over and puts his hand on Spock’s arm for no reason. He has no practical need to get Spock’s attention. (His next line is a question for Daystrom.)

By my read he’s feeling jealous, an emotion he’s not used to dealing with in relation to Spock, and due to lack of experience with this he messes up and uses a move that sometimes works on other people when he wishes they’d give him more attention. Bones sees it happening and tries to warn him off, but it’s too late—and Spock gives him that “wtf are you doing” glare, and Kirk turns the whole gesture into a pathetic point at nothing and then awkwardly, painfully awkwardly turns back and folds his hands and shakes it off. Just as it starts working.

You don’t have to read this as even remotely romantic but this is absolutely, unequivocally an episode about Kirk thinking he’s losing Spock’s loyalty and then getting it back, and I think this is the moment that Spock realizes Kirk’s floundering and starts mentally drafting the “a starship runs on loyalty” speech.

It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.

You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.

Procrastination Is Not Laziness | Thought Catalog

I’ve posted this before but I’m posting it again because it’s just so important and really gets at the heart of why so much advice about procrastination, much of it targeted at people who have ADHD but are just considered “lazy,” fails. Before you can tell someone to “just do it already,” you need to think about the reasons they’re NOT doing it, like all the meanings they’ve attached to vague terms like “success” and “failure.”
