5) write something deep
i am really bad at coming up with this stuff on demand. how about i quote someone instead? others always say things better than i can....


"here's what's not beautiful about it; from here, you can't see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. you see how fake it all is. it's not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. it's a paper town. i mean, look at it, look at all the houses, burning the future to stay warm. all the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. everyone demented with the mania of owning things. all the things paper thin and paper frail. and all the people too.  i've lived here for eighteen years and i have never come across anyone who cares about anything that matters."
- John Green, Paper Towns
just think about that....
