- integrity is not something I'm willing to trade for a company of another person.
I thnk your attitude towards the relationship might be flawed. Putting yourself out there includes offering something to a relationship, an investment or a sacrifice. Im not sure how friendship/intimacy compromises integrity, unless your partner is a tribal warlord or a malicious Ponzi scheme operator. I think its possible that you mean by integrity is actually the vulnerability involved in seeking a relationship, not to mention the vulnerability of committing to one. You gotta get a little out of your comfort zone to get funky. Source: my roommate snuck a handle of Tito’s in through campus security.
Let me know what you think when you're done!
Oh shit, another reporter for Rolling Stone on the same campaign? This is awesome!
Yeah I'm pretty deeply obsessed with the Vietnam war/era at the moment. Dispatches is another great memoir among plenty of its kind that try to paint pictures of "just how fucked up the most fucked up shit of all time was." I mean, the term "fubar" originated in WW2 but the expression doesn't cover Vietnam. Nothing does. That shit was the most fucked shit in modern history from the perspective of the American warfighter.
If you're looking for a vivid war memoir with a bonus couple layers of insight, that's a great book. Same effect as The Things They Carried.
A '56 grad from my school sang me this song at lunch earlier this month.
Edit: I could talk about this shit for literally forever. Be sorry you even got me started.
Has anyone read Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72?
Reading it at a military institution gets you looks like you're reading Dianetics while drawing a pentagram on your forehead in charcoal. Everyone's already on edge because of some recent drama about an openly Communist recent graduate and 2nd Lieutenant.
The dynamics of Washington in general as HST observes it are, while not surprising, are still disturbing in similarity to the present. I'm not even halfway yet but I'm hoping someone here might've read it or the other Fear and Loathings enough to throw in their thoughts.
You should hear Tom Segura and Kreischer complaining about hot yoga on Your Mom's House. The only valid conspiracy here is that Joe never quit weed for sober October.
My buddy sent me the link 5 minutes ago.
Usually Joe's non-comedian guests speak about really interesting things and Joe spends 2 hours acting like he's following what they're saying. Watching Joe's approach with someone like Tom DeLonge, on the other hand, is hilarious and refreshing: he doesnt call bullshit to Tom's face, instead he keeps spurring him on to find out what else he can pull out.
"I once met with a retired 4-star general who was both director of the CIA and NSA. I won't say his name."
I suggest not fighting it when you need a reset. Better to crash at the end of a week or two-week grind, and throw out the sunk cost for a fresh start tomorrow, than spend the whole month hating yourself for not meeting your goals.
