In my short-term exile I learned some things
One, never hope for anyone to care for you, no matter how you care about them.
two, we thought all we want is to ‘disappear’, but what we actually want is to be ‘found’.
three, pain is most painful when you pretend to smile and to look happy.
four, When you do something right, no one remembers. when you screw up, nobody forgets.
five, never make a permanent decision under temporary emotion.
six, too many people buy things they don’t need to impress people who don’t give a shit.
seven, we can’t read one’s mind like a book. and that goes vice versa. don’t expect anyone to understand the way you feel right now.
eight. we can’t please everyone. we can’t expect someone to understand a level eight conversation while he/she only capable to think on level five.
nine, every promise with “forever” or “never” is a lie. because in this universe, nothing lasts forever.
ten, alcohol (as so as milk and cheese) never solve your problem. get yourself together and work it out.
eleven, when you tell your problem to others, some are happy you had it, some are confuse, the rest are just don’t care.
twelve, the best thing of being alone is to be able to perceive more than give. thus, you gain much more.
i’ve been looking all over the internet for these songs. very few of them can still be found as records. i remember the first days after i declared myself the straight edge oath, these songs were the first to grasp my ear. well, not all is actually that old, some are new references or new songs from old bands. i’d really love to put this as .zip and upload it, but i know some really cruel people over the internet who will do whatever it takes to make me regret that. so i guess i’ll just put it here and hope it has good use for those who seek.
