This morning i awoke and felt like Ted Mosby because I haven’t found the girl I’m looking for yet. Today’s a non-single kind of day. Maybe I’ll read some orgo and then fuck bitches.
Q:what happened to make you so unhappy?
oh just family issues. you know that period where you sit alone in bed but you aren’t tired so all you can think about is negative, depressed thoughts? that’s where i was at.
behind the glowing, happy faces we see on so many people there exists a depressed state. happiness seems to be a mask that we all wear because that’s what’s “acceptable” and “appropriate.” I’ve come to accept this as a fact of human nature. it exists in all of us. we all have a story that at, when all is said and done, leaves us in misery.
I’ve also just come to terms with the fact that I will never be happy with my life again. at the end of the day, it wasn’t the decisions that I’ve made. it was the actions of others that has led me to this unhappiness. the only way that I can be happy once again is through an event so improbable that I’ve just accepted my fate and my future without it.
it’s unfair. it’s life.
they say that sadness means you can only get happier. I think in some cases-yes-this is true. it’s unfortunate, though, that this is not the case for me. I will never be happy again. but I’ll hide it. I’ll put on my mask and pretend everything is okay. but it’s not. I’m actually quite dead on the inside. a different kind of dead. but dead nonetheless.
getting drunk is almost half as good as getting high. almost.
My four favorite cartoon characters:
Randy Marsh - Aside from being hilarious as fuck, I think Randy is a very underrated character on South Park. Just about every time he talks he makes me laugh. His actions are erratic and grandiose, and he stops at nothing to get what he wants. I respect that quality even in a cartoon character. And besides Towelie, he is the only recurring character to openly smoke weed in an episode.
Lisa Simpson - Always made fun of but not fully understood. A smart girl living in a world of idiots. Gotta giver her mad props for that. And no matter how many times she gets made fun of, she still focuses on her goal, and she’s bound to be successful and happy in her future.
Dr. Zoidberg - A silly character that represents the pinnacle of my dreams. Not what I want to be, but rather what I aim to prevent. A doctor that doesn’t know what he’s doing-a doctor that could be better and actually heal people. But he clearly doesn’t do it for the money, which I respect.
Brian Griffin - Yes, I understand he is basically a cartoon depiction of Seth MacFarlane’s ideals, but I can relate as well. Liberal, intelligent, and focused on what is right. He understands that there are things in the world that are falsely depicted (See episode 420). Don’t forget he’s a Brown graduate.
So all in all, what I aim to show with this post is that there is more to these characters than meets the eye. These characters represent more than just a cartoon to me. But hey, maybe it’s just because I identify with them.
