harO! blogging from alameda, CA!

i havent done this in awhile... staying up late on a sat night to do some work while listening to music. yes im on vacation, but no the work doesn't stop. im feeling good tho, toured some mayan pyramids in mexico this week, snorkeled with tropical fish (a barracuda almost ate me), and spent a good part of today people watching at cafe strada, berkeley - i can still feel the top dog and sushi house in my stomach.

tonight im at alice's parent's place contemplating what to do with my life. man sometimes it feels like everyone has got it figured out. i think i was supposed to figure shit out in college, but i missed that train. now playing big-time catch-up. doubt is slow poison, gumming down your momentum. i strongly believe without direction you are traveling nowhere fast. i need to really figure out what i want for myself. to whoever is reading this: do you truly know what drives you?

this is stanley on vacation - signing off.

human behavior is unpredictable - too many variables.
systems are put in place to manage human behavior.
management is needed to organize and steer the productive direction of society.
organization is required by those who wish to control and influence that direction.

the result? a convoluted super spiderweb-matrixed bureaucracy everywhere you turn. i've realized im adding to this!
