Looking For and Finding Nothing

The second semester's work is slowly trickling in. With 21 units, I shouldn't have any excuse for free time. I should be so busy that I don't have time to comb my hair, much more think about silly things I shouldn't be thinking about.

But of course, despite the work, I find myself pondering things I shouldn't be pondering, lest I go crazy. While reading for Comm 141, I chance upon this equation by Lerner. I'm not even sure what it means exactly, but it fits right in with me right now.

The more I want, the more frustration I feel. The less I get, the more frustrated I feel. I want to be happy, but I can't help but feel guilty with my happiness. I want to go with the flow, but I can't help but over-read. I want to take things at face value, but the cerebral part of me just takes over.

Who knew Daniel Lerner's thoughts on National Development were so real/applicable to non-national development issues?

clean sandals, common breaks, copied notes, and calling out to me. i'm so easy to please.
