pain

I'm in a fairly good mood (besides that I have to pee, but I feel like I can hold it a bit longer). I'm reading an interesting essay entitled "pain" (yes, lowercase p) assigned for my "Writing the Essay" class from Mercer Street, an NYU-published book of essays from the school's expository writing program. It's about...well, pain. Instead of confusing me like my last assignment (which my teacher said was the hardest essay we'd have to read all year...thank god, philosphy irks me) this essay made me think. Or mull over things. Think may imply some meaningful thought, which...probably isn't going on.

The emotional component of pain doesn't necessarily lie in the realm of science. It is characterized primarily by raw human experience for which there is no technological equivalent.

I guess it speaks to me in light of recent events, some of which I'm barred from speaking about at the moment, but you'll hear about it sooner or later this year. Overall I guess I haven't had that many bad experiences in my life. I can think of...one. Two. TWO. At least two. I mean, two experiences that were really scary or depressing because of emotional things. Don't worry, if you're reading this it probably had nothing to do with you. The thing is that one was resolved while the other wasn't. Oh well, no biggie.

I don't want to think about all the bad things that have happened to me, do I? Haha! No way. For now I'll think about...something else.

Oh, updated beck beck beck with new stuff. The E-Pro video is so...weird...I have to watch it again. It's surreal. I'm not even going to describe it. One thing I will say is that Shynola did it and it looks like...something they'd do, if that means anything. Not really. Anyhoo! I still have to pee.
