Eudaimonia

Eudaimonia Hi, my name is Eric. Eudaimonia has it's roots in Greek philosophy and pertains to the value in living an objectively good life. It doesn't necessarily prescribe happiness at all points (and in fact necessitates that we do not always experience it) in life, but describes 'good' living as that which is consistent with your self-tested and derived values based on your experiences. There is a lot of room to discuss what we might call 'good' and by whom we measure such things. I generally see humanizing behavior as being of higher value, and being more reflective of a 'good' and 'virtuous' persona. Many of the things I write and say are based in these thoughts, both about myself and others. I'm not afraid to criticize intent because intent itself requires belief to function. Those beliefs will guide the people I interact with when I'm not present in front of them, and therefore to maximize the extent of my own influence I must be open to receiving criticism, dishing it out fairly, and be critical of myself. What's good, seeks to get better. If you hold the belief that humanity has inherent value and is worth fighting for, come share knowledge with me.

Daft Punk - Something About Us

It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there’s something about us I want to say
Cause there’s something between us anyway

I might not be the right one
It might not be the right time
But there’s something about us I’ve got to do
Some kind of secret I will share with you

I need you more than anything in my life
I want you more than anything in my life
I’ll miss you more than anyone in my life
I love you more than anyone in my life

Wow, 250 followers.  Didn’t expect to see it, really.

mioinne replied to your post “Eric, do you have cancer?” -My boss, when he saw my haircut.”

w-WHY??!

I don’t really know.  It feels like today everybody got a memo about all the things that trigger me and everyone did their best to remind me of things.

My boss set the stage talking about cancer, then I go sit in at a college (long story) and they start talking about suicide.  I brought up statistics and some of the people in the room thought “most men choose a shotgun in the mouth” to be funny.  In that moment I very clearly saw myself holding one to my own throat and wondered how funny it would be if my brain splattered on those who laughed.

And then at work my driver asks me, “Eric, if you had a wife and she was really old, would you wipe her ass for her?” which she could not have possibly have known that’s exactly what my mom did for my dad when he had brain cancer.  Once you hit that point where you know your mind wont get away from it, you just kind of give up and let yourself feel sad.  But then you get the guilt of everyone else asking why you’re upset and having absolutely no answer that wont also upset them.

It’s nobody’s fault but my own.  I can’t let go of everything.  It follows me everywhere and is nestled in everybody’s words.

"Eric, do you have cancer?"

-My boss, when he saw my haircut.

Excuse me while I fangirl some more about people who appreciate puns and run with them.

I cannot believe that this kind of thing has to be said, but here is a quick list of some of the AAVE terms that I see whites using that they need to stop, now. This is just stuff I see on tumblr or in every day life, not necessarily everything that’s AAVE.

• dig/dig it/ you dig
• “this…

I don’t know what you think you know about languages but language can’t be owned by a certain group of people. Vocabulary (especially slang) is easily borrowed and reinvented across any language, not just English. Of all the elements that make up languages, the lexicon is the most flexible. Tons of words have been borrowed from not only other dialects but also other languages (seriously, English has taken from everything). Your point is illogical because it would be like me walking up to a Mexican who’s using the words ‘zipote’ or ‘pringar’ and telling them to stop it because those words belong to Salvadoreans. FYI y’all is the plural form of you shared by Southern dialects and AAVE. Sorry, you don’t own y’all. Hella on the other hand is a staple slang word in Northern California. I’m from the South of California but I’m currently attending school in the North and here, it is used by everyone whether they’re white, black, Asian, or Hispanic. Where you got the idea that it’s strictly only in AAVE I have no idea. What else. Oh yes. You should look at the history of ‘cool’ as it’s a prime example of what happens to individual words. Really, in the grand scheme of things, what you want doesn’t matter because language does what it wants.

Here’s a link for ‘cool’ if you’re interested in learning about words and their history.

I find the term patriarchy to be insufficient for a number of reasons.  But above all else, because parity should not be a gendered thing.

I’ve gained another ten pounds of mass but besides my stomach I really don’t know where it’s going.  I don’t work out besides literally running around at work.  My body confuses me.
