(~simul iustus & peccator~)

Despite writing it out yesterday, and seeking out and reading Harvard Law Review's informative piece on street violence, I've still been near tears all day today. I'm not enough of a cyborg yet that it wouldn't affect me, that it wouldn't hurt. I mean, what a fucking thing to do to another human being.

I don't know what to do for catharsis that isn't just me punishing myself for someone else's misdeed. My usual coping mechanisms are famously dysfunctional. It's getting to a point that if it weren't for my obligations toward the University, I probably wouldn't go out on my own at all, anymore. And that's sad. Letting the world turn me into a wreck is like letting everything I find despicable about it take it over, let it win.

Something else that has been on my mind is memetic viruses. It's for things like this that I've become severely infected.
