Eternal Sunshine. For whatever reason, that’s what I’m thinking about right now. Like, not the movie. Or really, not even the concept. I’m just thinking about what those words sound like. They sound great, even without the meaning in them. The concept, though, of eternal sunshine, is a bit corny. There cannot, and should not be, a forever sunshine. Things need to be dark every once in a while.
I mean, there are stars, and phases of moons, and lights of the city at night, which very much need to be seen. Also, there is darkness, even in light.
But I guess that, as far as we can truly imagine, there is eternal sunshine. At least for our own lives, there will not be a moment in which the sun doesn’t shine. We just can’t always see it.
Hey, that’s a neat metaphor.
I’m currently looking at lots of stuff about men’s fashion, and college, and dorm accessories, and stuff I feel like I’m gonna need, like backpacks, and new clothes, and bed sheets, and ideas for food and stuff, and I realize two very important things:
1. I want everything. Okay, maybe not everything, but I want a LOT of stuff, it seems like.
2. I feel like I can afford almost none of it. Or my parents can’t afford it. Or even if they could afford it, they won’t allow me to get it because it’s something I don’t “need,” or they feel isn’t “appropriate.” (Not to say it’s “inappropriate,” they just feels it isn’t explicitly something that fits within what they know of as a college lifestyle. Which, you know, isn’t a whole lot…)
It’s just a part of the process. Or the struggle. Whatever you choose to term it.
Today’s Daily Gratitude is for Pinterest. I seriously joined just to look at men’s fashion, and college stuff. They also have things that are funny, and insightful, and also pictures of cool basses I need, and cool guitars I want. And motorcycles and tattoos.
They’re surprisingly cool, even though it still feels catered more towards women.
