『 dum spiro spero。』


S, 24, Purgatory. INFP. Vegan.

Enclosed are the journals, sufferances, and myriad artistic influences of an androgynous writer-musician, struggling to make sense of the world and their place in it.

Subjects likely to appear on these pages include but are not limited to:

•animal rights
•human rights (and inhumanities)
•INFP-related findings/insights
•mental illnes
•transhumanism (H+)

and probably many other topics that have slipped my mind.

(If you find any of these things disagreeable, I strongly urge you not to follow, as I hold many interests, and trigger warnings are not one of them.)

This page is NSFW.

What a vegan says: Non human animals exist for their own purposes and should have the basic right to life and bodily autonomy. In our shared sentience, humans and non humans have equal ability to suffer. Carnism and speciesism are extremely bigoted belief systems indoctrinated from birth. You should examine your role in the perpetuation of such belief systems and strongly consider no longer funding industries that systematically oppress, exploit, commodify, torture and kill billions of non human animals annually. Veganism is a necessary step in the direction to being as cruelty free as possible and doing the least amount of harm to non human animals. Align your morals with your actions and go vegan.
What meat eaters hear: You are evil and I hate you. You are basically hitler and you should just go die. PS. I'm better than you.

Sleep won’t come and this migraine is getting worse. I have a half a mind to gouge my left eye and pluck the pain out right along with it (it’s right behind it), but I have more common sense than that.

I should probably see a neurologist. It’s been a decade overdue.

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have:
  • books
  • music
  • the arts
  • unexpected kindness in strangers
  • the rest of the world to travel
  • languages to learn
  • animals to take care of
  • volunteer work to do
  • the power of a good night’s rest
  • the changing of seasons
  • infinite things to learn
  • billions of people to meet and possibly love
  • billions of people who might love you back

Fantastic article on the psychology behind procrastinating, and why writers are particularly susceptible to it.

Work finally begins,” says Alain de Botton, “when the fear of doing nothing exceeds the fear of doing it badly.” For people with an extremely fixed mind-set, that tipping point quite often never happens. They fear nothing so much as finding out that they never had what it takes.
