The Daily Meep
Lolita is not about love, because love is always mutual; Lolita is about obsession, which is never, ever love, and Nabokov himself was so disappointed that people did not understand this and take away the right message… For how could anyone call this feeding frenzy of selfishness, devouring, and destruction ‘love’? In her preface to Lolita, Mary Gaitskill reflects on a review by Vanity Fair’s Gregor von Rezzori in which he calls the novel: “The only convincing love story of the century”  (via loav) Wednesday Sep 4 @ 07:53pm

My favorite quote ever was from a concert I went to roughly a year ago.

He said something about how it doesn’t matter if we’re rich or poor, sick or healthy, beautiful or not, because we’re all going to die alone.


And that statement is so very true.
We are all going to die.
We are all going to die alone.
No one dies with you except yourself.

So ultimately, nothing fucking matters in this world we call “life”
The relationships we build, the things we accomplish and accumulate

It does not matter.

So don’t be upset over something as insignificant as a disappointment. Fuck.

To-Do List for the last year of my undergraduate career.

College is what you make it. And so far, I’ve made it become an experience that’s been 60% disheartening/lonely, 20% enjoyable/fun, and 10% memorable.

I’m determined to make this last year make up for that large 60 percent. Because although I do realize that a lot of that percentage was my own fault, since “your college experience is what you make of it,” I still believe that a lot of was due to external factors.

Anyway, here is the list or “new years resolution” of sort I have compiled to accomplish for these next two semesters.

  1. Be more social and engaging in class, etc.
  2. Talk to people, meet new people, network with people.
  3. Make lasting friendships.
  4. Get more involved with on-campus activities
  5. Attend more campus-sponsored events
  6. Actually participate in the clubs I have listed on my resume.
  7. Stop trying to hide from everyone while on campus. Be in the public eye, stop avoiding the places I feel uncomfortable and get over the anxiety these places bring me.
  8. Really push myself to become better at understanding and utilizing design softwares.
  9. Similar to number 3, but find a friend who I can have lunch with on campus. No more buying coffee and rushing out of the dining hall by myself.
  10. Put more effort into my appearance. I always start out looking nice for school, but often end up in hoodies and disheveled hair and no makeup for the remainder of the semester.
  11. Do/Create something that will make an impact and leave me a lasting impression. I really want to make a difference on my campus so hopefully my thesis project will aid in accomplishing this.
  12. Keep in touch with all the wonderful people I have met this summer from my internship. This is a little less college oriented, but still something I want to do throughout the school year.
  13. Join a non-profit organization and start volunteering regularly.

Had such a lovely time with Gev in Solvang this weekend.

Solvang is this really cute, Danish city up more northern California near Santa Barbara wine country.

We spent the day walking around town visiting all the little shops, had lunch at a windmill, and ended the day with wine tasting at a local winery.

It was a lovely day indeed.

I think I have discovered my favorite bar, even though I’ve only been 21 for less than a month now and I’ve only been to a handful of bars, but this place in Downtown is super cute and serves drinks in little jars.

It really sort of bothers me when people say that I ask too many questions.

Since when was it such a crime to be inquisitive?

It’s awesome when you find individuals who share your similar hates with.

If we can hate on something together, we’re friends in my book.

Having sex is fun and great and all, but I like just talking and gazing off into space and pizza too.

Mars and Venus, 1599 by Cornelis van Haarlem 

The love affair of Mars and Venus is recounted by Homer in the Odyssey and by Ovid in the Metamorphoses. Venus, the wife of Vulcan, falls in love with Mars, the god of war. The moment of their tryst is depicted here with great pictorial flair. Maidservants prepare the goddess of love for her amorous adventure. Mars, too, is assisted out of his garment, his weapons already cast aside at his feet. No longer the ferocious warrior, Mars is subdued by the power of love. The artist includes the charming device of two putti at right holding the god’s shield and halberd. This painted story was enjoyed as much for its learned, literary references as for its erotic content.

I love this painting very much.
