i spend a lot of my time daydreaming about how it would be to live life as a recluse. i think i would be very good at it.  these daydreams usually come after a negative experience with some of the more horrible people in the world.

i try very hard to be a nice person and to be patient and to smile and to say please and thank you. nick always used to say "it's nice to be nice". very true.  mainly, i just don't really understand why people have to be mean or are in such a hurry.  people who do not see past themselves.  i try to put myself in other people's shoes and i try not to be too quick to judge. and i take people as i find them.  one of my favourite quotes is "be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle". and it is one that i try hard to live by.

but for all my good intentions and empathy, there are endless people out there who carry on life in the complete opposite manner. and when i cross paths with such people, it makes me wonder why i even bother. and that the only and best solution is to live in the middle of nowhere, so i can forget that these people even exist and so i can carry on being my nice self without having to worry about ever meeting these horrible people anymore.

i think the internet makes it so easy to do these days. and if there's anything i'm good at, it's staying in my pyjamas all day surfing the internet. i really think i would do so well as a recluse.
