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.

every Starbucks should have a polar bear: House on chairsscoradh on September 6th, 2006 05:26 pm (UTC)
I think it would, if House were on terrestrial channels. :P

The worst thing was when the girl took arterial blood from the old man without asking anyone to help ... that looked like it HURT. And I did see that you were having a crap day then too, and I'm sorry I was too spaced out to say anything at the time. Angst about starting college comes out in all sorts of ways and it's very, very normal to have it. Just accept that the first few weeks are going to be crazy and scary and difficult and you'll be surprised at how quickly they pass. ♥

Awesome. I love that film so so much.
