This is a great article by Ann Lebovitz. The quote about nails being like a “little bit of heaven” is a bit of a cliche, but it is one I’ve heard many times and it seems to be true. It is that we can create our own little heaven when we create our own little heaven. You have two choices here. You can either start to create your own heaven or you can start to create your own hell.
One of the most popular ways to create a hell is to go to a party and act like a complete ass because that’s what everyone else is doing. This is why, when I was a kid, I’d go to parties and I’d act like a complete dick while being a complete dick.
