Thoughts with Chelsea Handler

So, I was my usual self today, and I sat down after work to watch 3 shows that I watch Monday through Friday. Those are: Chelsea Lately, The Colbert Report, and The Daily Show. I was watching the episode from 2 days before, showing a Victoria's Secret Model and the 2.5 million dollar bra she was going to wear for the show. It made me think: why is it acceptable for our society to make out fits for a single showing that are worth more than some people's countries?

Thoughts While Watching 78th Street Through My Window

So, being my usual self this morning, I laid in bed with the laptop on the radiator, and watched out the window at the people and cars going by. As I watched, I thought about faith in humanity. And I wondered, have we really lost our faith in humanity, or is it that we personally don't know people from all different spectrums of life?

Last Post of a Heartwarming Night.

So, being my usual self today, I took the subway home. There was a boy who couldn't have been more than 15 playing such beautiful classical music on the keyboard, which sounded like a piano. At first I thought it was nice, and I would tip him, but I knew my train was coming, so I went down the stairs instead of staying up where he was. When I got to the Q/R terminal, it was empty, which means I had just missed the train. I listened to the boys' music and a minute later, he played me a song I haven't heard in a long while. It took me back to my childhood; when I was young I had this beautiful old porcelain doll who would play that tune whenever it was wound up. It has always reminded me of the Titanic, because the doll was what I imagined the style to be like then, and the song was so magical that it must have been played on the beautifully tragic ship. That song filled my ears and brought me to tears. I walked upstairs, took out money, and put it in his open case. As I bent down to put the money in, he looked up at me. I gave him my best smile, put my thump up to him, and left. He was smiling.

Thoughts from Macy's

So, being my usual self today, I went shopping for boots Macy's at the worlds largest store in NYC. Since it is the Holiday shopping time, there were many more people shopping than normal, so it was busy and stressful for the workers. I got a nice girl my age, maybe 24, helping me. To make a long story short, I noticed a lot of people getting antsy and short of patience with the workers who were helping them. Maybe it's just me, but I go knowing its gonna take awhile. I don't rush people when they are clearly working hard. I hope it's not just me that has the mind frame to keep things stress less on everyone.

Thoughts on music

So, I was my usual self today, and after watching The Band Perry's "If I Die Young"' music video, I got to questioning the depth of the video. If you haven't seen it, click here.

Or watch it here.

If you have, let's continue.

Is the ending portraying a girl either not being dead as everyone thought (or coming back from the dead) and how happy her loved ones are about it, OR is it about her loved ones being dead already, and she was coming to meet them after her own death?

Thoughts on Reversed Roles

So, I was my usual self today and I got to thinking about how attractive people seen with less attractive people are looked at. Usually we see that the females are the more attractive ones than the males in theses situations. But why does our society, and by ours I mean mine, look at this and think: "The man must have some outstanding quality to attract such a mate! Why is the woman seen as a prize? Why can't we also think that the attractive woman is not shallow, but likes people for certain qualities?
