I want to keep posting, but I am SOOOOO overwhelmed with life right now, so those two songs are embodying what I'm feeling right now. Things can be hard and totally suck, but we have to keep trying to make things better!! Plus, those songs are on my playlist as I study for my last exam of the quarter. Don't get too excited!! I still have a HUGE paper that's not exactly started due Monday plus the oh-so-wonderful IRB to take on. not to mention a trip up to the BC to see my family before I leave on my Southern Hemisphere adventure. Whoooooo!!! So anyways, to add a less idealistic note, but just as "you'll get through this" kind of a song: "If you're going through hell, keep on going. Don't slow down, if you're scared, don't show it. You might get out before the devil even knows you're there!!"
I'm dedicating all three songs to my fellow activists, grad students, loyal readers, who can all get down in the dumps because, let's face it, life can be hard sometimes. Capitalist scum, keeping us down!! (Marxist class exam tomorrow.) Well, it's not actually Marxist, but the professor is, so it totally has the spin on it. However, I feel like Marxism has its good points. I mean what is communism but a way to try to make everyone have a good quality of life?? That's gotta be a positive. Just because pretty much all communal societies end up with a fascist dictator doesn't mean it isn't a sweet idea. I mean sweet as in nice, not sweet as in Dude, that's Sweet! It's just something to ponder in this post-Castro in power world. Anyways, the point is that despite everything, we will get through all of this and it will be OK. Maybe not perfect, but OK. Chin up! Pip pip cheerio! Stiff upper lip! Tut-tut it looks like rain.... hmm, doesn't quite make sense... Have a good one!
