My next tattoo has to be Elton John themed/inspired. I can’t imagine getting anything else. Now to come up with a design..
I suppose I beg to differ. We gain satisfaction, justice, closure. We know he can’t hurt us, we know he suffered the way so many others have. I lost many people in the 9/11 attacks and it’s nice to know that the person responsible for it is no longer…
An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
Yes, he attacked us and ruined thousands of lives, but he did exactly what he wanted to do. He dragged us into a decade-long, unwinnable war, cause America to vilify ITSELF and attack and kill thousands of innocent civilians, successfully making Al-Qaeda hate us more. The polarizing war has driven our country into the ground and ruined our image throughout the global community. Bin Laden has done NOTHING to America in the last 10 years other than send us empty threats. This is going to spur a ridiculous backlash. We’ve successfully created a martyr, given Al-Qaeda a hero to fight for. It’s just going to get worse.
So because he “hasn’t done anything” in ten years, that means we should have stopped pursuing him? That means we should forgive him for killing all those people on 9/11? It’s hardly an eye for an eye. It’s really easy to say that. I think Al-Qaeda already had a hero before 9/11 and the war started, let’s be honest. Why else would have they done what they did on 9/11? I can’t understand how you can’t recognize the impact this has on the people who lost loved ones on 9/11 AND the soldiers who are fighting overseas. It is completely a victory for the people who have lost people because of his disgusting and unbelievable actions. It’s closure, it’s comfort.
I suppose I beg to differ. We gain satisfaction, justice, closure. We know he can’t hurt us, we know he suffered the way so many others have. I lost many people in the 9/11 attacks and it’s nice to know that the person responsible for it is no longer living, he didnt’ deserve to live.

Darrin needs a cheap place to live starting in June/the summer. Anyone know of anything/is anyone looking to find a place? Helppppppppppppppppppppppppp
hahaha i always do that. i can get agressive though
a real girlfriend will bring you a sandwich, a beer, and give you a beej while you play xbox.
first I complain then I yell at Darrin to shoot things when he plays his boring ass games that have like 20 minutes of talking before you get to the shooting.
I’m kind of obsessed with Parking Wars…. probably because it reminds me a bit of the “challenging” customers I deal with at my office. I like weird shows.
I have done no other work. Oops.
Can’t approach English assignments as anything other than print deadlines forever.

Amen. Journalism major camel is pretty dumb though. If every journalism major was like this damn camel, I would want to beat up everyone in my major for being a pretentious, overbearing asshole.
I need to be more proud of myself and what I accomplish.
Whenever I see my cousins, I’m reminded of this. I love my cousins but they have everything handed to them. Money, Lexuses (Lexi? more than one Lexus vehicle), trips to Spain, whatever. I guess I don’t blame them for taking advantage of their parents’ wealth but it just all seems so hollow. I’m not going to pretend like I’m not privileged, I am still partially dependent on my parents (without my mom’s support, I couldn’t live away from home), but I’ve worked damn hard throughout college and before. I’ve had a job and internships and I’ve managed to graduate college on time… two of my cousins didn’t/aren’t going to graduate on time and they never had jobs. My brother and I have made lives for ourselves based on our own work ethics and I guess that feels pretty good. I’m so proud of my brother for what he’s accomplished and he did it all on his own.
It’s hard to see the positives of what I’m doing with my life when I’m constantly tired, busy and stressed… but I really need to, for my own sanity.
I hope this doesn’t sound complainy or whiny, it’s just something that I think about from time to time.
