La Familia


I seriously lucked out, my friends are fucking awesome. All we got is good times, from the beginning to infinity and beyond. They're always there when I need them, through the highs and the lows and everything in between. I love them all so much............

I have to mourn, it really feels like somebody close to me has died. This baby has seen me through all the loneliness and kept me closer to the ones I love.

The worst part is that I killed it with carelessness, and that was right after I received a really really really urgent call. I didn't take care of it properly while running and panicking in drippy London. BB always did good but I let it drown ;(

What's Up

Just got back from Copenhagen with X. Had massively long conversations about everything we think about, ate hot dogs, hit up design stores and art museums, bummed in playgrounds, and visited our dead buddies S.A. Kierkegaard and H.C. Anderson. Not much else. It was good to take a break from all the social stuff to go back into the metaphorical womb, which is what Copenhagen feels like.. quiet and safe streets, nice people, cool vibes. But the mind never wanders too far from home and by that I mean London and all my friends xoxo

Goodman Steaks

2 weeks ago on the last day of term we went to Goodman City for our Friday night supper club and we ate what is likely to be the best steak I have ever tasted - the wagyu which costs maybe double of every other cut, but is so worth it. Once the plate hit the table we all went for it and immediately regretted it because the Black Angus just couldn't hold up against its competition. Note to self: always eat the good cuts before the BEST cuts to maximise total utility.

When I get this way it seems like the right thing to do is to write down what I think, what I think has nothing to with what I am supposed to be writing about except this:

eudamonia: a state of intellectual, moral and total excellence, a frictionless existence where one's knowledge, feelings, actions and pleasures are aligned in perfect unity

If I'm not sure about something I always talk about it either in the dead particulars or in the super abstract, I hate thinking about it in between because that doesn't seem to be the point, or the right object of observation. Things in between are too volatile and inevitably so since they are neither tied to reality nor removed entirely from it. I drew a circle with my finger while I was talking about what I think of perfect love, I ended where I started. This is the abstract idea of what I think I want from everything in life and my singular conviction to it reinforces the feelings that I derive from what happens in material reality. I cannot draw a circle without going away from the start, but I also cannot draw the circle if I don't eventually come back to it.

It reminds me of another idea which I have shamefully forgotten about mostly but I will say that it has a lot to do with Hegel. The spirit takes on a form which alienates Man from himself and in the alienation he recognizes what he is and when he is self-aware he is truly himself and the process of self-realization is complete. There is perfect freedom to be found in perfect knowledge, but alienation is a part of attaining self-knowledge and so maybe alienation and ignorance is already a step past the initial point but must move further away before it can reach its end.

Not really a good conclusion to this thought but this figures out two things:
1) Why I always feel the need to run from what I want
2) Why I place inordinate significance on things that bring me back to or towards what I had left

You could have done better but I don’t mind


I get a bit scared swimming circles in the same old puddles, I'm trying to get closer to the surface but it doesn't seem to break.
