le sigh.

I know that experiences with bureaucratic hurdles are supposed to only make you stronger, and prepare you for the kinds of things you’ll be dealing with later on in life. But seriously… this is frustrating.

 I remember being younger than I am now and wondering what the word ‘bureaucracy’ means. it seemed like such an odd word, and nobody could quite explain to me what it was. Now I know why.

anyways, if i could magically turn into this public policy magnate who everyone listened to (on a multilateral level), the one change I would wish to make would be to offer alternatives to the way we are defined via geography. Via borders drawn many years before. Via history. Via all these ties to our past, our ‘collective histories’. they inevitably become superimposed onto the you that’s breathing, thinking, wishing, and living in the present.

    the dominion of canada denied you canadian status, didn’t it. my mom says i can’t hang out with you anymore. she doesn’t want to be haunted by her communist oppressed youth when the russian comes over.
