i like to consider myself someone with a high level of empathy.
however, i cannot understand, nor remotely comprehend, the behaviour of some people. people who do shit like leave their "friend" (terse friendship aside) alone in the middle of a dangerous area because they got kicked out, and you don't want to leave yet. or people who constantly abuse friendships- ignore and belittle people until they want something.

i cannot fathom how people can be honestly so cruel to each other.
like racism. i understand it, i see it, but i just can't work out how it could possibly exist. how can people be so far gone from humanity?

ok. yes, people piss me off. some people piss me off a lot. i can dislike people, or at least how they behave and interact with others. but i cannot reach that level of apathy towards the quality of someone's life, like i see other people do. this is something that genuinely fills me with rage. i'm not even going to say "why can't we all just get along?" because, to be honest, i get why we can't. i just don't understand why we have to treat others so cruelly because of it.

i've always been a fixer. well, i try.
but, increasingly, the problems i want to fix are too far beyond my control.
it kills me.

i would usually be asleep by now-
but tonight, i am not.
again,
i point out the obvious.

why am i still here
i don't mean this
existentially
but literally

why am i here on my computer,
and not swept away
in a glorious slumber,
snoring loudly.

perhaps
i have eaten too much sugar today
or just too much altogether

perhaps
i have done too little
of anything at all

is this why i am still here?
i am awake
i am an insomniac

because

i have done nothing
with my day
and thus

my body has been fooled
"ha! it cannot be bed time when there has been no day!
you cannot trick me!"

my body is too clever for it's own good
and so i am awake,
i am an insomniac

because

i cannot sleep.
well, obviously.

OMG OMG OMG ski trip was AMAZING
IT SNOWED! DURING THE DAY! WHILE WE WERE SKIING!
for those of you not familiar with australia- yes, we get snow in winter. not where i live, but further south in our mountain range. i went on a ski trip and because it has been such a cold winter, the snow was fresh powder already and then it actually snowed while we were there which never happens! amazing, amazing, and i only really stacked once and that wasn't my fault. woooooooooo best holiday.
how are you all?
