Per Aspera ET Astra means through thorns and stars.
Per Aspera Ad Astra is the common latin phrase for through thorns to the stars.
For some reason, I always assumed his tattoo said “ad” instead of “et.” I took Latin for far too long and it was also our motto at forum one year…we took it to mean, one must go through something difficult to achieve something great.
Last night, I realized I equate happiness with how much I experience life.
I never want to “do” life like so many others, I want to be fully apart of the human experience.
And by do life, I mean typical things, get a job, get married, have kids, raise a family, get old, have grandkids, die. In fact, those are things I never want to do.
I am part of a selfish generation and I am damn proud of that. I do the things I do because I know that at any moment I could die, and I’d rather spend my time doing what I want rather than what someone else wants.
Thanks for letting me give a little rant over here. I have some film I need to use up and develop before I leave, so excuse me.
I was sitting on the floor next to the couch and Tomo just walked up and sat next to me.
I had a dream about MARS this morning.
They were playing a smallish venue and I think it was either the day before or after the concert. For some reason, my little brother and I were the only people hanging out in this room when the guys came in. Tomo sat next to me on the couch and started playing his DS 3D and I asked him about and he showed me some things. Then Shannon and Jared came into the room and Jared was pissed, ha was very upset about the venue they have to play. He asked about the different venues in town and I told him about the Arena and all that, and he said, “Of course the French Canadians couldn’t afford it!” (???I think some sort of hockey team was supposed to put on a show there but they didn’t???) Some other stuff happened that I don’t really remember now that the dream is over, but it ended because I had to pee. In the dream I got up to use the toilet and then I woke up.
