On Idleness

Nature is a cruel mother; she hates idleness of any kind. She destroys the weak, and preserves the strong. In her arms,  the purity of mind and idleness are incompatible. Idleness -- is a haven for fools and a holiday for shoddy minds. The panda must adopt, explore, and learn more, even if it means failing, even if it means crying the tears of despair, even it means enduring the scorching heat of the sun.

do not despair, because even in the scorching heat of the sun, and the idleness looming over as we see vacation-laden students across Cubao, there would always be an ice-cold beer, a poker set and 4 (well nasa ilocos pa yung isa) to play with aneeeetime!

i read an article in a US-based zine before. the art of being idle. i learned (and have been experiencing it for quite some time) that even in our idleness we are creating something. now, that's not to say that it's something worthwhile. everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial. so the bible says.

@Random Student - as they say, if you don't use it, you lose it :) Sabi din yan sa bible :)
