ever wonder why some people have just quit? they seem like they stopped, like they where almost there and then ka-put! they are stuck, stuck in a life that is mundane and safe. just go to work go home watch t.v masturbate and fall asleep(repeat). i get tired of hearing how a family and a house in the suburbs is the ideal to happiness's i see so many people who who have children who they yell at there spouses they treat more like some verbal and sometimes physical punching bags. why is this the norm? in America and most of Europe this is the stranded fall in love or settle for someone then have kids and live together that formula shifts here and there but over all is still the same. cant we as a society break out of this rut?. im not saying that everyone who is married and has kids is miserable by far i know lots of very happy couples and parents- -but it is not for everyone is it so wrong to just want to travel and have more than one partner? to just be free and go thrue out the world with joy? mkeing friends and lovers? (insert word here for lover ie f night stand etc.) haven't we evolved past this stranded? . so what do you think? are you like me and just want to be a free person? do share!

to the question of if i wonder why it appears that some people have "just quit". I would say that it appears that way, because "some" people have. The older i get, the more i realize how much "starting over" costs, and the value of having a plan. Early on in my twenties i pretty much traveled around through the states, meeting new people, and having new experiences, and all that shit that people who don't think they're ever going to get old, or who secretly, wishfully, truthfully believe that somehow someway things are going to end up working out great for them through some paying it forward/karma/because i'm a good person bullshit type of way. Though in time the realization set in that the only thing you get is that in which you work for in order to live the type of life you want (unless you're good super hot and have the hope that someone of the opposite sex is going to come along and do it for you on some kinda white horse or something). Kinda forces one to settle and attempt to accumulate the things you want out of life. Also forces one to tend to settle into one partner looking to accumulate at least some of that same shit. Kinda like a tag team partner in life, like the Rock and Roll Express or RoadWarriors (sorry for the wrastlin reference).

Religion is the glue gun of compliance.

I think the reason this becomes the norm for most people is because it's hard to just go travel the world and have sex with whoever you want if you can't hold down a job and therefore stay in one place. That's pretty much the reason why most people end up going to work, coming home, living a mundane life, going to sleep and doing it all over the next day. I'm sure if we didn't have to work there would be a whole lot more of us who would want just that kind of a lifestyle, and maybe there are too many people even now who are trying to still have that life and it's pathetic for them because they are like old hipsters who never grew up and wanted to do anything with their lives except selfishly enjoy it without making anyone but themselves happy. It's pathetic because they aren't really happy, because they never have any meaningful relationships. I suppose that kind of a lifestyle is better suited to youths, who are powerful and fresh and new and want to experience that power of feeling young and free and liberated, but after a while I think most of us just want to have a safe place to come back to and to become rooted somewhere where they can begin to be a part of a larger community.

Hazel without the H,

Why cant you be another ant in the colony? Know your role. Mind your man. Go to church. Three squares. The rotary club for excitement. Gossip. Nine to five. Earn pension. Raise children and inculcate the norms. Repeat.

RAT ON A WHEEL

Just do it
