When I worked as a freelance video editor, it would occasionally be my job to edit behind-the-scenes videos of fashion photo shoots. Occasionally, a segment of raw footage would be particularly “interesting” or “funny” when viewed out of context.
Anyway, here’s a video of a sexy lingerie model freaking out on a piano.
Yesterday was my birthday, and while a lot of things went ok, a lot of other things kinda made me sad.
First, I was in school all day. That’s a horrible way to spend one’s birthday. I can’t celebrate, I can only do my homework.
But that’s not the worst part.
For a very long time, almost since I can remember, I have felt incredibly lonely. I mean, I have friends and stuff, but I’ve never had a girlfriend, and that saddens me. No girl has ever wanted to go out with me, and that adds a lot to the feeling of loneliness.
Yesterday, my friends brought their significant other to my birthday “party”. It wasn’t really a party, but a gathering. Now, I feel really happy that my friends have boyfriends and girlfriends now, but to be honest, I don’t really like seeing them kissing because it only reminds me that I have no one to kiss.
I’m lonely and being lonely on your birthday is a very sad prospect.
Hopefully soon I will not be as lonely.
Remember when I forgot I had a tumblr?
“I can assure you that gay people getting married will have zero effect on your life. They won’t come into your house and steal your children. They won’t magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster. They won’t even overthrow the government in an orgy of hedonistic debauchery because all of a sudden they have the same legal rights as the other 90 percent of our population—rights like Social Security benefits, child care tax credits, Family and Medical Leave to take care of loved ones, and COBRA healthcare for spouses and children. You know what having these rights will make gays? Full-fledged American citizens just like everyone else, with the freedom to pursue happiness and all that entails.”
They say Beauty is a curse.
But is not a curse for those who have it, but for those of us who lack it and fall in love with it. It’s a curse having to see it every day knowing that those who have it will never be with you.
That is the curse.
