it's summa tam

Summary bits:

I learned the word "pile" from apartment 7 sometime. I thought it was weird, but now I feel like one. I've been a pile so far this summer. And it has been great.

Great picture bits:

Quote bits:

"Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them."

Things that mystify me, given in complete sentences, followed by poetry:

- Some things make no difference until they change.
- I think that some things will make a difference when they change, so I keep them from changing, but they wouldn't actually make a change, even if I let them.
- I'm a grown-up and I can make my own decisions, like going and getting Chinese food whenever I want.
- Not a complete sentence: Wanting to do things, but not ever doing them, thus showing that I don't actually want to do them.
- Sometimes I miss things that weren't that great. Nostalgia isn't just remembering the past, it's remembering a perfect past.
- I say "like" too much.
- Artificial credibility and faked confidence are NOT REAL. But they're valid in a few situations. Not all situations. And many situations that might seem to qualify actually don't.
- I can't even control what I say.
- I can't even control what I say!!
- How much of what I do and work on now will matter in fifty years?
- Ten years? Five?
- Tomorrow?
- Things that seem to be a constructive and good use of time may actually be a waste.
- A waste! That's a strong word!
- Classes are over and I didn't fail any of them!
- Not one!
- I'm probably wrong about most people I know.
- I should have said shfifty years.

Once I found a shiny pearl,
Inside an oyster shell.
But then the oyster ate it up,
And I was all, "oh well."
