Life Rant

Because what is the point of anything.

Life Rant

So I quite literally never stop working ever. I am in school, and strive to get six hours of sleep a night, which does not always happen, because I am endlessly playing the game of life. I am painfully aware that this is a game. That this is a social construct to give our lives purpose, when in reality, we a reparably purposeless. Realistically, I do like to pretend that their is a reason we are here, because there has to be some sort of reason for everything right?

No, not really.


I think about how every single day I could just die. I could have a heart attack, or get hit by a car, or get shot, or choke on an apple slice. I don't know, the possibilities are really endless. So knowing that this could happen, why am I sitting at this desk for 16 hours a day, every day? Will it really, at any point ever, be worth it?

I really do not know.

I know that everything is pointless. I love the arts, but they really do not matter. But it does not change the fact that they at least make me feel something. That is the best you can do as a person, I think, is to authentically feel something.

It is amazing how easily people find themselves caught up, or distraught over the smallest things. Why be mad about something someone said, or someone being late, or someone forgetting something that is "important", when in the big scheme of things, it is not important at all?

Obviously, you physically cannot feel and/or think this way all of the time, because then you wouldn't be human. But in a lot of ways, thinking about how nothing matters is relatively relieving.

It is funny though, that I am sitting here writing this sort of article to meet my monthly quota because in reality, I am creatively drained. And as opposed to just not completing it, I feel an obligation to because it is my "job". Funny how easily I get sucked right back in.

Alright I am going to go and keep sitting at my desk for another ten hours.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
