Right now, I just simply exist. Manifesting as a jedi, musician, artist, skeptic, stoner, scientist, atheist, buddhist, occultist soothsayer, anarcho-socialist who is pro legalization of cannabis, pro choice, pro LGBTQ+ rights, pro body posi, pro ANY rights for all beings; anti sexism, anti racism, anti fascism, anti homophobia, anti body shaming, anti religion, anti nationalism, anti war, anti violence, anti hatred.
I want very much to be able to respect others views because there is much to learn from difference, but if your views somehow try and prevent someone from existing on their own terms, they dont serve a helpful unitarian purpose and dont deserve to be respected. They can be used as tools for learning, analyzed and understood. But not respected or upheld. Sorrynotsorry.
I guess I'm just kinda your modern-day amateur humbly-and-admittedly-dont-really-know-shit-about-anything-just-trying-to-make-sense-of-this-perception pseudo-philosopher.
Forever will i be the optimist, the jedi, the lover, the scientist, the mystic, the listener, the absorber. Just looking to kill time and make a buddy or two or four...teen...thousand.
May the Force be with you all, always.
I used to have dreams of living the Santa Cruz beach bum life; living in SC, tattooing the rest of my life or owning a head shop, or an arcade, or selling my artwork. Thats still an appealing life, but for now my more reasonable goals are collecting star wars memorabilia and going back to college to study biology and chemistry so i can settle in a career that will help guide our futures in a positive direction for all. Clean energy, renewable resources, biologic and chemical engineering to bring better conservation of animals and resources, as well as better food, medicine, and products to people all with less pollution and endangerment of the environment. We only have one life and one planet yknow?
Half of people tell me im "extremely intimidating" when i first meet them, the other half tell me im "warm and approachable." I dunno you tell me?
