gen y non-winner. [Nov. 16th, 2011|06:38 am]
my stylish heart
[Current Music |gnossiennes no. 4::erik satie]

there was this episode of the short lived tv series Wonderfalls where the main character, jaye tyler, finds out this girl is writing an article on her. at first, she thinks, "awesome! i'm important!" until she realizes the title is "gen y non-winner" and her best friend gives her my personal favorite pep talk, "you're not a loser! you're just a winner... who hasn't won yet... or ever."

i really feel like a gen y non-winner. and like jaye tyler, i'm just... oddly okay with it. i make more than enough money at my crappy job, knowing well enough that when my looks go.. pffft! so goes the cashflow. i love that i only have to work four days a week, the rest of the time spent writing and playing video games and drawing and meditating and reading and doing WHATEVERTHEFUCKIWANT.

i've got this thought of the eventual "back to school" plan that lives somewhere far off in THEFUTURE (not to be confused with THENOW or the ANYTIMESOON)

and i guess what i'm trying to say here is... i'm just gonna coast. plannings for winners.

besides, losing has it's own allure anyway. our lives are ours (three r's) to utilize or not on a whim.
