Little Bad Days

I used to have some little bad days, and I kept them in a little box. And one day, I threw them out into the yard. “Oh, it’s just a couple little innocent bad days.” Well, we had a big rain. I don’t know what it was growing in but I think we used to put eggshells out there and coffee grounds, too. Don’t plant your bad days. They grow into weeks. The weeks grow into months. Before you know it you got yourself a bad year. Take it from me. Choke those little bad days. Choke ‘em down to nothin’.

Tom Waits

But a -1 to Actually Being Cool

Me: You’re a Latina. You have a culture. I’m a WASP. Nerd culture is all I’ve got.
Her: You’re grasping at straws.
Me: I might be, but those straws are +2 to my constitution.

Patchouli and Failure

Well Intentioned, Slightly Grungy Youth: Hey man, got a moment for Greenpeace?
Businessman: Got a moment for a shower, hippie?

Oh Greenpeace street team, will you ever catch a break?

Embrace The Dork Side

Being a nerd, which is to say going too far and caring too much about a subject, is the best way to make friends I know.

Sarah Vowell, The Partly Cloudy Patriot

Motivation

“Everybody keeps on talking about it, nobody’s getting it done.”

LCD Soundsystem, “Yeah (Crass Version)

*sigh* I hate being one of those new age douchebags that talk about personal mantras — but I still feel compelled to share this.

I have to confess that every time I find myself hitting a brick wall mentally or I start lacking any sort of motivation, the line above manages to find its way into my head — and always at the right time.

And as cheesy as this might end up sounding, whipping out my iPod and giving the track a quick listen actually ends up pushing me forward.  At that very second I want to be the person who stops letting the talk and bullshit cloud my mind and instead be the one who starts doing.

So that’s what I do.  Well, for the most part anyway.  I mean, it can never really be that simple, can it?

Still, I’ve realized the strength of this song.  “Yeah” is my auditory can of spinach.  It works really well at giving me short bursts of awesome, and that’s totally fine by me.

So what kicks your ass into high gear?  Enquiring minds want to know.
