The World is Not Ours

I rise yet again, after my year long hiatus.

I certainly hope that someone out there read my blog and was disappointed with my absence. But that would be asking a bit much. I’ve been away. True. But not away from anywhere in particular, just this place. I guess with exams and stuff last year, I must have forgotten. Sorry!

So what have I done since then? Well. That’s not important, since this is mostly my innermost thoughts. So my actions are of little importance here. Though seeing as it is my blog, I’ll pretty much put whatever I feel like on here.

I’ll apologize once again, but this time for my rusty writing ability. Apparently it’s been awhile. I’ll get back in the loop hopefully. I’m running out of insane pictures!

I’d like to leave you with a few final thoughts: Red Bull is bad for you. No matter how sexy the women who give it away may appear. Though, that blueberry flavored one is delicious. And Bill Gates is awesome. Just everything he and Melinda Gates do with their foundation and all the charity work. Gives me hope that humanity isn’t all bad after all. Then I listen to some random republican congressman threaten to throw a reporter off a balcony. But hey. Look at the positives!

Finally, I’ll keep this music thing going. Really do like this song:¬†

Edit: I took that picture. ūüėÄ

This life is wonderful. Cherish every moment. Humanity is great.

ImageOkay, so I typically post negative things, but life really isn’t negative. It’s just the typical perspective that we own things that is negative. What should be seen is the potential we have for achieving things that are unimaginable.

Go back a century and flight would have been impossible. Today we not only have people flying in wingsuits, but we have been to space and back. Humanity has plans to go even beyond, with plans to have a man on Mars within a couple of decades. That’s impressive. Without the power of flight, I perhaps would have never met a number of wonderful people who flew in from various countries ranging from Sweden to South Africa.
Innovations such as that are what make our lives incredible.

Also, I apologize for not writing yesterday, in case you were looking. I went to a¬†city about three hours away and didn’t get back till past midnight. Almost fell asleep on the drive back, but I made it home safely.

Anyway, song of the night:

Living in a Circle

leave a comment »

ImageDon’t you tire of the same routine every day? I feel as if our lives are designed in a cyclic manner. Well, not designed, but molded into. We do the same thing. Day after day, night after night. Nobody wants to do that, but we do. We con ourselves into believing we don’t by some varied sporadic activities, such as you reading this, but you can lump that into time allotted to sporadic activities. When you put it that way, you realize that you spend x amount of time looking at random things, while the rest of your day is the typical routine. Why can’t we be atypical?

I think society is what prevents us from being atypical. Personal example: I’m in school working on my B.S. in biology, eventually to work my way up to a neurosurgeon. We’ll see about that. I find neuroscience to be very very interesting, and would love nothing more than to study it for the rest of my life. But, with that, I fall into the cyclical pattern of doing the same thing, despite the fact that it may be fun, it will at one point become monotonous. Now, I also want to travel the world, and master a few extreme activities. While that should be¬†a break from the cyclical life, it really isn’t. Why should I look forward to ‘vacations?’ I shouldn’t have to. Why can’t I just do what I want to do whenever I feel like it? That would be acyclic.

Having order in life is necessary, but it shouldn’t govern your life. I will try to write a post on my blog every night. That is order. It does not govern what I plan on doing though. This sounds like I’m rambling, but it’s my way of telling you to break free. I only hope that I can break free one day. My ideal life would be that of the Doctor. Alas, fictional lives aren’t real.

Edit: playlist of the night:¬†(I may have posted this already, but hey. It’s what I’m listening to.)

Thoughts on a Dreary Day

leave a comment »

ImageSo first off, I want to say that I probably could have taken a better picture, but I like it, as it’s my view from one of my windows. And it’s a golf course covered in snow. Doesn’t get better than that. But with that in mind, it’s been a rather dreary day, as I’ve confined myself to my house, due to me not wanting to spread whatever it is that I am sick with (not sure if it is contagious, but no need to take the risk).

That does give me time to think. So here I shall convey my thoughts on religion, as I often seem to do on this blog…

I’ll start by merely saying that I respect all religions equally, despite them not respecting each other. I don’t quite understand what it is about religion that makes it more alluring than the pursuit of knowledge.¬†So my basic understanding of following a religion is that it gives you purpose in life, and that it supposedly answers those questions to which there is not an answer to currently. Questions such as how did life come about.
Well, I feel that those two things, purpose and answering unanswered questions, can be for the most part attained by the pursuit of knowledge. I have a slight bias towards the sciences as I consider them to be awesome, but hey, any knowledge is good knowledge. So why is it that you follow your religion, because if it is at your belief’s core not one of the two things I mentioned, I clearly haven’t given it much thought, and I would like to do so.

Right, so here are my ending thoughts: a bit of a sidebar actually, but I just got super annoyed by my mother again. I feel like being superstitious is grounds for ridicule. But I respect my mother enough to not tell her that she’s wrong. She thinks that spending too much time on a computer/cell phone can lead to cancer because of some silly chain e-mail. Stupid, I know. I do realize that spending too much time in front of a computer is detrimental to your general well being, and I don’t spend that much time in front of one when I’m not sick. But it doesn’t cause cancer. That’s simply ridiculous. Annoyances aside, these are my thoughts, and now I will leave you with one of the greatest playlists of all time (it’s precisely 5 hours and 40 minutes of amazing instrumental music):¬†
A few notable songs from it: He Films the Clouds pt. 2 by Maybeshewill, Shifting Sands Wreck Ships by Lights Out Asia, and one of my favorites: I’ll See You When I See You, and I Hope This Will Be, Won’t Be Soon… by Pie Are Squared. In fact I like that song so much, that I’ll link it here as well:

I’m Alone.

leave a comment »


I suppose it’s just one of those days. I feel alone, like I’m the only person who realizes I’m here right now. But it’s okay. I’m used to it. No matter how many people I know, I am in the end a single person out of a group, and it’s easy to forget about one person. No matter how much I smile, days like today bring me back down to a place I dread, a place where everything is dark, with no way out. I enjoy the darkness of space, but this is a different darkness, one with no escape. Well, at least it seems that way.
I am glad I’ve begun to blog again. I will try to publish a post a day. Probably later at night, just because that’s when I reflect on my day. Who knows, maybe future posts will be better than this one.
I don’t even know what to do anymore. I will probably just go to sleep. Sleep is escape. But it’s still lonely. But at least I can dream.
So the playlist of this night shall be:
Because Life is Temporary.

It’s been quite some time. So here are my thoughts.

So, yeah. It’s been too long since I’ve blogged. But I had an epiphany. More of an idea. So roll with me, those of you who actually read this particular one.
Okay, so I’ve been thinking, what is our purpose in life. (Bear with me, I know that not all my posts have ever been so optimistic, but I think this one will turn out to be rather optimistic).
Purpose in life. Right. Well, I think that our purpose in life ought to be to live for ourselves. Don’t let other people guide you over a cliff. Guide yourself into the stars.
Basically, here’s how I see it: Live your life, as you wish to live it, but along the way, touch other people’s lives as if it were your own life. Life is above all else sacred.

See, I can do optimism.
Sorry if this is ramble-esque, but it’s just my thoughts as they come along. I don’t script this. I don’t make a¬†rough draft and perfect it. I write it here, so that I know that I’m not the only person in the world with my most inner thoughts. Someone (you) reads them, and hopefully connects with them. Or critiques them. Both are great, as my thoughts are always morphing into newer and better thoughts.

Going off the optimism thing, I’d also like to say that I have rather recently¬†gotten out of a¬†relationship-esque thing. It wasn’t a bad situation or anything, and I believe we are still good friends (always nice to have friends), but it just reminds me of how there are people who tend to be unhappy in this world. I have a message for you people: I should be upset, but I am not. I don’t believe in being upset. If I am ever upset over something, I will probably get over it very quickly, either because I bottle it up and store it in a shelf that only occasionally gets knocked down or because I see a better situation in life up ahead. Despite how bleak life may look at times, no matter how much you want to be in a different situation, life is amazing. Life is beautiful. And (to me, most importantly), life is incredible.

A song I like to listen to that a very special friend of mine introduced me to is “Face Up” by Lights. Here’s a youtube link, if you’re interested:

Okay, that’s it for this rather disorganized post.
