Thursday Part II - Thoughts

The first item is actually something which occurred to me last night whilst I was out walking my dog. This small flock of birds flew over, arranged in their pretty standard group which is supposed to look like a single big bird in order to fend off predators. I suddenly thought, why the fuck are they still doing this? Surely the predators have evolved to figure out that this "big bird" is in fact a flock of smaller potential prey. Survival of the fittest and all that. Only those predatory individuals who figured that out can get enough food to survive and therefore reproduce. A few generations later, only the predators which have this knowledge are left. Doesn't the prey then need to come up with something new in order to survive? Hmmm, a random thing which seemed much more relevant at the time.

One thing which I didn't think about whilst at work, but has instead come up since I've been sitting here trying to remember what I was thinking about at work, is the fact that I have absolutely no fucking idea what I want to do with my life. I think this has been brought on by a conversation I had with the dentist about university and everything. He was asking whether I was going to get the certificate which entitles you to practice law on your own as a solicitor. I forget the name of it right at this moment. The problem here lies in the fact that to get this, you have to go and work in a law firm for at least 2-3 years once you've finished your degree. I'm not sure if I want to have law as my career path just yet, and I'm probably leaning towards not doing law after my degree. So why do the degree? It's a good degree to have, especially from a respected uni, which King's is, and opens up many other doors. The only other career path I'm giving serious thought to is journalism, but in what form again I am unsure.

Dammit, I had this post all planned out in my head whilst I was at work, and now I can't remember a fucking thing that I was thinking about. I know I had a few songs in my head all day long (Goldfrapp - Strict Machine, Eminem - Square Dance, and a couple of others), but I can't bloody remember where my mind was wandering off to. Fuck it.

One final point to ponder over until next time: In the track "Spit Shine" by Xzibit from the 8 Mile Soundtrack CD, he claims that he "mashed out before niggas knew mashing." The question is, did he look a total fool mashing out on his own? I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that mashing out is a social thing. Doing it on your own is just silly.
