I Won't Black Out

I've been ignoring you for a while huh. I'm sorry. It's almost June and I thought it'd be a good thing to update. This post has been opened, autosaved and transferred in and out of other apps almost a hundred times.

So I'm back for a peep (yes, at a very busy time). It's another all time high with assignments and time is scarce, but there are frustrations that have built up in me that I just have to let go.

There's a new fear that grips me these days. People are watching me on Facebook more than I think. Of late things have been a total mess. The only thing that has pull through and I dare say, has been a success is LINES. LINES, if you're wondering, is an unofficial podcast that I run for Taylor's University. Sadly I haven't gotten all the credit I hoped for but I'm not letting it go. It's not all rainbows and butterflies working in the studio recording episodes every week but I still love doing it.

I wrote a while back thinking that I've become a masochist. Why?

University life. Ahh. I've missed you.

Every single moment doing those assignments in the wee hours of the morning, tuning in to each radio station and listening to all the morning DJs first words of the day, looking out the window at constant intervals and noticing the sky getting brighter and brighter by the's been a while.

Oh hell no. It's anything but fun. University life is tough, but it's well worth it. The applause you get after a successful presentation (especially after  whole night of no sleep), the look on your lecturer's face when s/he opens up your carefully written paper and takes a look...It's priceless. Absolutely priceless.

I've never been the cream of the crop. I've never been the top student, but heck I don't need that top spot. Sure I'll try to reach for it but hey, I'm happy with what I get. If I feel I can squeeze out more then I'll argue and fight my way for it, but most of the time it's not that worth it. After all, this will only result in a bunch of numerals and a piece of parchment at the end of the line.

There's only so much a University can teach you. Organized education in this piece of crap called a "system" isn't necessarily the best way to go. However it became so built into society that we all must have one to survive and thus, Capitalist ideology ensues.

Think about it. The whole world is Capitalist. Forget Democracy, forget Socialism, forget Communism. The whole damn world is Capitalist. Money makes the world go round and while we hipsters and bronies try to tell the world to love, forgive and forget, it's still the coins that jingle-jangle in our pockets that make things happen. Even in Equestria, money is a essential part of the community. Like it or not, that's what the world has gotten itself into. You can argue that it's not the case but heck, it's become the case.

Nobody really cares about how much you know. Surely you'll turn heads but people will think you're a snobbish bastard for showing off. Others will just think about how to use you.

Use you. What for? It'll eventually boil down to money. This is why we can't have nice things.

I need to go now because I've got a shitload of things coming my way. I'll update soon. Promise.
