“We come into the world as individuals, achieve character, and become persons”

^ I read this quote in a reading from coms 235 by an author named Goffman. it means that we are all born equal, and then throughout our lives we achieve our personality. it is after our personality findings when we become people. people who put up fronts, who fake who they are until they eventually believe the fronts they’ve put up. i wish i had a front. i wish i have a fake brave face, because then maybe eventually i would believe that i am brave myself. joseph talked about flipping over the egg in the frying pan because you know its done, but not being able to move your hand with the spactula in it, because you think “if its not done, its ruined.” what where i am. i am in limbo between two directions of my life. i wish i had my brave front. no, actually, i wish i could be brave without having to put on a front at all.

at least until i figure out when to flip my egg, i have adderall, nyquil, and alcohol.

in a limbo-spinning world of confusion, i love you.
