A lot of things built up for me. I had knee surgery which left me really dependent on other people and, after 5 months in the US being completely independent, it was hard to adjust to, I friend of mine got very very sick, my girlfriend broke up with me and then it just ended up being a bunch of little things that drove me to breaking point.
I’m out for a while tumblr. Right now this site is only bringing me hurt and I need to take some space from it. Those that I talk to on a regular basis, I’m assuming you have me on facebook or have my email.. you are more than welcome to talk to me there. Thanks guys xx
Home from work, go to sleep, up at 6am for class, back to work in the afternoon, home to bed, CPR course, work again, back to class the next day, orientation for clinical in the afternoon, more class, physio appointment, class all the next day.. It’s good to be busy again :)
“I’m no great runner, by any means. I’m at an ordinary—or perhaps more like mediocre—level. But that’s not the point. The point is whether or not I improved over yesterday. In long-distance running the only opponent you have to beat is yourself, the way you used to be.”—Haruki Murami, from What I Talk About When I Talk About Running (via soul-runner)
“I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people. You can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can’t. You have to do things. I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is. And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. I don’t know. I guess there could always be someone to blame. It’s just different. Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.”—Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower (via bookmania)
Me:Dad, does this make sense as a basic argument of the difference between religion and ethics? Religion varies across cultures and societies. It is not one set of principles that only follows one moral guideline. Ethics is argued to be a universal concept. That is, it is derived from a multitude of variables but is, for the most part, understood on one scale.
Dad:Or you could just say that religion starts with 'R' and ethics starts with 'E'.
what is your homework? I'm totally avoiding mine too.
I’m starting my first module on ethics, human dignity and the natural law. I’ve finished everything else but this subject requires about 10 hours of study a week so I’ve kind of been avoiding it. Procrastination ftw!
