You know that feeling, the feeling that your about to do something that might just open your world. You’re a bit frightened because change is frightening, a bit excited because of the hope it brings, a bit sad because you can never go back. You can’t run away from these moments but when you have that feeling of nervousness, the butterflies in your stomach, and then you accept them. It may bring that special feeling you’ve been looking for, or the place where you feel you belong. It’s a good feeling, a good place to be where you’re unsure of what you want to do or how you want to do it. But what I’m saying is do it. Life’s about those moments. When you have those butterflies, let them flutter in your stomach, it’s what living’s about. Those moments change your life for better or worse, but there’s no point in being here if you’re letting your butterflies fly away.
“Oh, this is her
I embrace your defects to confess you were my every wish” - 2’s my favorite 1 by Coheed and Cambria
“I will now bleed for what I believe in
No more mistakes for them to make for me
So goodbye, it’s my time to be…
To be me
Face the honest truth
You were never you
Now be defiant, the lion
Give them a fight that will open their eyes” -Sentry the Defiant by Coheed and Cambria
— my favorite lyrics from their new album easily the best one since Good Apollo, and the guitar riff during the chorus of sentry blows my mind
Calvin: Isn’t it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humour? When you think about it, it’s weird that we have a physiological response to absurdity. We laugh at nonsense. We like it. We think it’s funny. Don’t you think it’s odd that we appreciate absurdity? Why would we develop that way? How does it benefit us?
Hobbes: I suppose if we couldn’t laugh at things that don’t make sense, we couldn’t react to a lot of life.
Calvin: (after a long pause) I can’t tell if that’s funny or really scary.
