Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric, if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it’s to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake. A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential-as if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth. You’ll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing, and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’re doing. There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you’ll hear about them.
PERRY: What were you *THINKING*? My $2000 ceramic Vektor my mother got me as a special gift? You threw in the lake next to the car. What happens when they draaaaaag the lake? You think they’ll find my pistol? *Jesus*. Look up “idiot” in the dictionary, and you know what you’ll find? HARRY: A picture of me? PERRY: No! The definition of the word “idiot!” Which you *fucking ARE*!
Ha! I thought people quit believing in ceramic pistols in the 90s. Also Vektors are nowhere near $2k.
Not even some kind of custom one? Or are they more? This movie though. SO GOOD!

Located in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, the Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest natural hot spring found in the US. The spring has a scalding temperature of 160 °F(70 °C), a total depth of 160 feet and a diameter of 300 feet. The vivid, rainbow colors in the spring are the result of pigmented bacteria in the microbial mats that grow around the edges of the mineral-rich water.
Procrastination is a problem for most people – and for some individuals it becomes a way of life. We tend to put things off until we’re backed into a corner, and we’re staring at a deadline, and feeling super stressed. So what are the reasons for procrastinating?
Procrastinator here. All of those reasons have applied to me at some point or another. I need to work on that.
The United States moves inexorably toward granting equality to the L.G.B., but in the process, while still pronouncing that satisfying final consonant, we often, in practice, drop the T. No federal law offers protection to transgender people from discrimination in the workplace; the population sees double the usual rate of unemployment, and ninety per cent of transgender individuals report harassment, mistreatment, or discrimination at work.
It makes me sad to see those statistics on trans people. One day it won’t be like that. That is the only consolation I can offer. I may treat you like any other person but there will always be those crazies who can’t accept you because they are mean. But I promise you every time I get the chance to vote in your favor I will.
