Misery begets no company  
I really like the line in Saved! (one of my fav films) where Mandy Moore -- yes, the bubblegum singer -- says "This is not how I wanted to remember my prom. This is not how I wanted to remember my life." 

It's an awesome line, full of feelings and emotions and other useful things. I often think of it myself. This is not how I want to remember my life.* Writing and reading porn might not be as bad for you as taking Es or even getting drunk every night, but it's still an addiction and an unwholesome one at that. All reading is dangerous, in fact. Never doubt that for a second. 

Still, I'm too lazy to actually figure out how I would like to remember my life. 'Not like this' does cover it, but it's rather non-specific. Then tonight I watched Junior Doctors, a programme about (wait for it) junior doctors at St Vincent's in Dublin. Holy fuck, that's not how I want to remember my life either. I get this sinking feeling that my future is not going to be anything like Grey's Anatomy. 

(No, the fic-dumping is not over. I'm sorry if it bothers people, especially HP people, but in truth I have no idea why most of you are here. No. Idea. My life hardly makes for enthralling reading, and you can find all my fics in the Mistresslists or my memories. In any case, I want to see my fics all prettily laid out on my journal, even if no one else does.)

* the key is not to remember anything ever at all. spend most of my life trying to do that, i'faith.

Do you never think that maybe the kids who are out there taking Es and getting drunk secretly want their life to be like ours? Sometimes everybody needs a bit of time writing and reading porn... or non-porn at a stretch.

Actually, sometimes I get like this too, after a little while living in various fandoms. But you have to remember that you are doing something worthwhile with your writing and even with your reading, so it is not time entirely lost.

Also, I would hope your life is more like Scrubs than Grey's Anatomy. That's how I always picture it.

Apart from the fact that the Es would totally fry their brains ... maybe. People used to wish they got marks as good as mine, but certainly not as hard as I wished I was pretty/popular/socially suave. Besides. Anyone can get good marks. It's the luck of the draw when it comes to the other things.

Whether or not it's worthwhile (I hope it is!), I find I can't stop. Let's hope someone appreciates or enjoys it ...

Unfortunately I can't see the real thing being nearly so amusing or surreal. Then again, people in my class are better looking than the cast of Scrubs ... so all is not lost.
