Proofreading, I have found that this is an entry that's more boring than most [Aug. 29th, 2003|05:34 pm]

I get to volunteer tomorrow--perhaps I'll have some good things to post in animal_talk. Both of the communities are doing great, by the way.
Anyway, it's been a day full of accomplishments. I got the last day of school for five whole days out of the way, checked out a book I've been meaning to read, printed out what I have of my book at Gavilan, went to the psychiatrist and had my medication cut down...the list goes on and on. And now I'm sitting here with Leila on my lap.
Anyway, it's been a good day for the most part. I feel like watching a good movie tonight (or reading, or doing homework). Anyway, strangely enough this journal has helped me to organize my thoughts.
I hope you all have a good three-day weekend, by the way. I hope I will as well. Tomorrow will be good, though. I can feel it. But as for what lies after that, it's too far away to see.
Oh yeah, and just to let you know: the human race is sending the planet as we know it on a pathway to destruction. Perhaps what will emerge after our species is gone will be more beautiful than anything the earth has yet brought into existence, or it may not be (by the way, this does not fit in to the rest of my entry in any way, and I have no clue why I wrote it). Yeah, I know I'm strange. Anyway, I'll try to comment on everyone's entries a little more this weekend.

It seems that you are like me, no matter how good things are, there's a little part of me that remains sad
because i cannot forget the crimes being committed against this planet or the creatures who live here.
But at least i feel like i'm doing the best i can to not assist in those crimes, so that helps me feel a little better.
peace

Yeah, there's always a little bit of sadness that comes up whenever I look out the window. The cars on the street that shouldn't be there--you know, all that stuff. Or the sadness even springs up in my thoughts.
Anyway, from what I hear, you should be proud of yourself for not following in everyone else's footsteps and completely devastating the planet like most people do.
And I'm proud of myself, too--I walked all the way across campus yesterday past countless garbage cans until I found a recycle bin. Every little bit helps, I guess.

"Perhaps what will emerge after our species is gone will be more beautiful than anything the earth has yet brought into existence"

Re: a little optimism?

Yep--I never looked at it like that before, but you're absolutely right.

Re: a little optimism?

it's a bit humbling and encouraging to realize that although we are commiting this mass extinction and killing off life as we know it, we can't kill life.

Re: a little optimism?

Thanks--that brightens up my whole day.
Yeah, life cannot kill life, and even if we weren't part of life, we still wouldn't have the power (yay)
