A note to my brain chemistry.

Please please please keep your shit together until I get this move taken care of. Then I promise that I will finally pay you your long overdue attention. Just hold on for another two weeks or so.

You guys, this is so damn good. If you grew up in the 80’s and 90’s playing video games, it will make you feel the feels.

I’m not one to reblog and simply put “This is everything,” but this accurately relates to a significant portion of at least my current professional life.

“When I started [Infinite Jest] the only idea I had is I wanted to do something about America that was sad but wasn’t just making fun of America. Most of my friends are extremely bright, privileged, well-educated Americans who are sad on some level, and it has something, I think, to do with loneliness. I’m talking out of my ear a little bit, this is just my opinion, but I think somehow the culture has taught us or we’ve allowed the culture to teach us that the point of living is to get as much as you can and experience as much pleasure as you can, and that the implicit promise is that will make you happy. I know that’s almost offensively simplistic, but the effects of it aren’t simplistic at all. I don’t have children but I’m sort of obsessed with the idea of what my children will think of me, of what we’ve done with what we’ve been given, and why we are so sad.”
