    "Essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful."
    --George E. P. Box

    Speaking of models again. I mean, it's trite, but it's a reality I constantly face in my day job. It's readily applicable to our own mental models and to, oh, typology.

    If I have learned anything important over the past six months, it’s probably this: There isn’t any job description, anywhere, that contains everything I want. Nothing encompasses all of my interests. My main creative act (in this stage of my life) is not going to be my writing; rather, it’s going to be piecing together jobs, and projects, and ways of living, so that I can do and be everything that I want. That is how, I think, to win the game—and I definitely feel like I’m playing a weird, capitalist game. It’s so imperative to resist the overwhelming current toward mindless routines, social isolation, and self-segregation.

    The beauty of taking offence is that the threats of the bully can be presented as the protests of the victim so that the ego can bask in virtue while the id exults in aggression. The arbitrariness is also appealing. Anyone can decide to take offence at anything and this ever-present potential creates a climate of fear satisfying to bullies.~M Foley.

    One of my favorite quotes by my favorite philosopher.

    "When, in some dreadful and ghastly dream, we reach the moment of greatest horror, it awakes us; thereby banishing all the hideous shapes that were born of the night. And life is a dream: when the moment of greatest horror compels us to break it off, the same thing happens."

    - Arthur Schopenhauer

    Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

    "Whoever knows he is deep, strives for clarity; whoever would like to appear deep to the crowd, strives for obscurity. For the crowd considers anything deep if only it cannot see to the bottom: the crowd is so timid and afraid of going into the water.”
    --mr. nietzsche
