Why Accepting Creative Freedom For Personal Expression Matters

Stop Being Too Critical

Today’s world can be ruthless. Especially for creatives. It seems our whole lives we are told we are not good enough; even when we demonstrate skill above and beyond what is normal. They brush aside our abilities and treat them as worthless. This article is about why they need to be accepting of creative freedom for personal expression.

Why Creative Freedom Matters

Seems this world is built to oppress creative freedom. People look at your work and say it’s not good enough, and often they kill the artist inside of people that could have been talented long before they ever develop into skilled craftsmen.

Seems they don’t want free thinkers, or people that do anything different. While it is good to have some academics in the world, they should learn to avoid oppressing people that don’t fit into their box.

Seems, many talented people have been cut short from developing into what they could have been, simply because people have told them they lack talent and skill. Pity!

They don’t really test for what creative skills someone has, they teach you and try to beat any sign of creative problem solving out of you by the time you reach middle school. Pity; they want mindless zombies.

Really creative people need to be respected as being exceptional, and for being able to do what few really have the patience, or skill to do. All too often, creatives are put into a very small box, and left to die of suffocation. It is ruthless cruel what they do to people who could have been some of the greatest minds in history.

They seem to think it is okay to be this way. Pity; they don’t want to make life better, they just care about themselves more than anyone else. Regardless of what is really best for everyone.

At The Very Least

Avoid stepping on someone else’s creative expression. Even if you are talented and really good, don’t take someone else’s work and tear it up telling them its not good enough.

When you look at other people’s creative work, you should at least think to yourself, “This is someone else’s expression.” and realize that is where they are right now. Because it takes no special talent to tear people down, but it takes everything to build someone up.

You can not put people in a box and think, that is all they will ever be. It is immoral to keep someone in a box that they can never grow and move out of. Or away from being in. Really only dead people belong in boxes. You want a world of living breathing people, right?

Better Than Nothing

People that are trying, are at least trying. Some people never start, and never will. Seems, they lack the very fiber to do what comes naturally to others. Really, people have to learn to accept creative freedom for personal expression in those who are creative.

Without being accepting of others creative freedom, you could never have a real paradise. Not ever. Not unless everyone was a mindless slave and doing zombie cat shit.

Accepting Creative Freedom For Personal Expression

Stop being spoiled control freaks and lighten up a bit. People need the ability to express themselves, and at the very least not feel threatened for doing such. Seems all too often, people want to beat any sign of creative expression out of those who deserve to be heard.

You want to go back to living in mud huts? Maybe modern civilization is far too much for you, and maybe you should have never left the oceans.

You don’t have to like everything everyone does, because that wouldn’t be healthy; at the same time, show some appreciation to those who are trying.

Life is meant to be lived, not everyone will see it like you do. And really too much conformity will leave the human race lacking. Remember that some differences are essential, because without that, everyone would be the same person.

We need to accept creative freedom for personal expression as the same we do other trades, and endeavors.

Conclusion

Be kind, always. It helps if you can be understanding of others who are different from you. You want to be at least supportive of others efforts. While it is understandable you won’t like everything everyone does, try to see some good in it. Maybe that persons effort will inspire someone else to do something you couldn’t live without!

You never know where things will go, and without someone to challenge the status quo life would be awful boring.

A Better Idea – Why Instagram Famous Feels Like A Hollow Victory

A Better Idea – It’s Not All Bad

Some things seems like such good ideas when they first appear. It is only after they have been around for a while, you let the juices start to sink in. I have a better idea; better than a red hot poker in the eye.

I’m bored with the status quo; seems there are people that want to make mindless zombies; maybe they have the perfect stock for it! This world has some real needs. Real need to wake up.

Sometimes, therefore we need to give ourselves a good talking to, and move along. And really if we don’t give ourselves a good talking to, the options look bleak.

Because this world is designed to trap fools. And you don’t want to be someone else’s free meal. In the wild, animals do everything they can to prevent themselves from being someone else’s lunch.

But, what about us? Are you sure you are not the prey? There are wolves out there that would just as well devour you. And if you don’t protect yourself, they will.

Being Instagram famous seems like such a good idea. The problem is; in my opinion, it would be a hollow victory. It might be a good way to get a good start to doing more. However, just being Instagram famous in itself as the final destination; would be a huge bummer.

Because, if that were the final destination, this world would be a dead end. Does the road go through here? Hence, the need for a bit of caution. Seems going to far down a dead end, doesn’t end well.

Some Dream

We need a better idea, that matches the dream. The dream and the idea have to go together. These two ideas, while they are okay; they don’t feel like they would satisfy the real need one has.

We need a better idea. Something that will satisfy the real needs we have. It is not okay to pretend that this idea of a hollow victory would solve our problems. If anything, it would make it worse.

Because if you are not really living; then why bother? Something must be done to appease the bit Gods.

We Need Real Dreams

A better idea, would be to have dreams that are reasonable. Because a dream that doesn’t do anything, may not be worthwhile. Therefore, we want a dream that makes life better.

Not just any dream is going to do it. We need dreams that make life better for everyone. Anything that really does the job is worthwhile. The effort has to be something that can be measured. And when we can calculate the value in something we can touch and feel, then we have something with substance.

Really, we want something with substance. This hollow feeling is not going to satisfy our real needs. We need some satisfaction in life. We need a better world to live in. A better idea would be something that makes life worthy.

If you have not read my article about making your life an inspiration to others, please read it right quick!

Please visit my website, I have spent countless hours developing it. While you are there, check out my videos on YouTube, and my music on SoundCloud.

Conclusion

While I want to be respected for my mind, there are some points to consider. It may take a great mind these days to be Instagram famous. That however, is not the final destination. I have a better idea. Check my Instagram feed out: @mydigitalchaos

Finding Courage To Be Yourself And Unlocking Your True Power

The Power of Courage. . .

Life takes some real courage. Not everyone will see things the way you do. Not everyone likes to talk about ideas, or challenges in life. Some people, will go out of their way to avoid having to have those conversations.

And when the world seems like its made for people with small minds, you search for the ones that will understand. Pity, few today will even listen. Hence, we seek light in the dark, and look for like minded people that have more on their minds than pop culture.

Because, life can be tough. You want to make it better, however knowing a way that will work seems impossible. So you keep your head down, drop your eyes in the street, and pray for some relief.

Seems, salvation only comes in our dreams these days. And people don’t listen, or think. I guess, we have to forgive them; if such a thing would make life a kinder place.

Thanks For The Lessons

Seems this world, and this life; it all has some lesson it is trying to teach us. Because people are hard headed, sometimes progress is slower than it should be. I have not learned them all, and have no plans of making every mistake; yet, my lessons have been educational.

Someone will think, because of what changes us we can never recover from such a lesson. While, you need to understand not every lesson is meant to be learned. Some learn, some pay no heed. Seems life is meant to be lived, and sometimes lessons are easy to learn.

Don’t make every mistake, and take care of yourself in ways that you can live a long time. Not everyone can just wing it; you have to plan. It takes a lot of courage to live free, so many today want to oppress you.

If you live life to the max, remember no one is perfect; that way leads to some real mistakes. Because when you are on the wild side, there is always some bumps along the way.

People with shallow existence have their own problems, and no time to listen. They will pay no never mind; even if you beg. Best, to save your dignity, and not waste words on those who fail to listen.

You would think, someone will notice. However, after a long time with no results; you wonder if the world is a madhouse?

Access Your True Self

You have to have kept a journal for a number of years to connect your mind to your soul, and the soul to your heart. Once you do, things change. Everything becomes more reasonable, with better thoughts.

Learn your lessons early. Because, life is rough. Life gets easier when you do it right. Do your best, and make life easier in the long run. Even if it all goes wrong, failure is rarely permeant. Success is not always based on luck. Also failure is not always because of a lack of skill. Therefore, be kind in your ways, because you never know when someone is struggling.

Successful people struggle, and hope for better; while working class hero’s are having fun. Not everything is perfect, and the sand in your socks isn’t comfortable. Still, you can wash your socks; and make life just as good.

A Whole Lifetime Of Living: A Guide For Those Seeking A Better Life

Purpose: Finding Meaning In Living

One could reason, that if you could meet your needs in life, having all the necessary provisions in life; you would naturally want to live to enjoy living.

Think about it. If all your needs are met; the next logical step would be to enjoy being alive. And really, the purpose of life is to enjoy living.

People loose track of what really matters in life. They get distracted with the distractions, and put unnecessary drama into their lives. When really the goals should be simple; to enjoy being alive.

The problem comes when someone has needs that aren’t being met, or cared for. Then you have a problem. If you think about it, anything that causes you to have hurt, pain, or discomfort would be a bad thing.

So there should be a way to have the necessary comforts in life. To be free from pain, hurt, or discomfort; or at the very least to minimize those problems to livable thresholds.

When you have your needs met, the next logical step is to enjoy being alive. To take pleasure from being able to eat a good meal, to enjoy being outside in clean air, and having the company of good people.

The rest of it, is just stuff. Some of it is very useful; and you wouldn’t want to live without it. However, you have to put things into perspective; and have a level of balance that people have lost, and forgotten about.

Really, if you can take pleasure from the simple act of living, there is a better chance that you will feel really good about living. So take the time to enjoy being alive. Make people put the drama, and rush aside. There is enough for everyone to have some, which is enough.

However, if your needs are not being met, and you are unable to get what you want from life, that is a real problem. If you have pains, or discomforts that are unbearable, and have people that make your life impossible, then something has to be done about that. Those are problems that need addressed.

Really, a person that has their needs met, could enjoy living, and being alive in ways that would make life worthy. To be able to eat a good meal with friends and family. To be able to enjoy doing something for no reason other than the sheer pleasure of doing such.

Then, you are really living. People need to set aside the drama, and the problems, and take the time to enjoy really living, for the pleasure of living. Because that is really important to be able to do something for the pleasure of being able to do such.

We have to get back to a place, where people are happy being alive. The problems have sky rocketed. People are unhappy, they don’t have the respect, or the honor they once did, and everyone is feeling it. Really, we have to make life worth living again. To be able to do such, we have to be able to enjoy living.

People get frustrated, and agitated, and then they make problems for everyone else by either being cruel, or through ignorance. And really we have to start to put those things aside. People in this world have not been kind, they put more importance on making money, having nice cars, and being wealthy.

They put this pressure on people, and they allow them to rob them of the joy of living, and taking delight in being a living, breathing, being. Please stop being jerks. Sure it is good to have goals that are big, or even out of this world. Everyone needs some challenge sometimes. It may even be one of those things people do for the sheer pleasure of doing such. However, to put that pressure on other people, and expect them to conform to your idea of great, is absurd, insane, and hurtful.

Don’t let them rob you of your joy of being able to live life. There are more things in this world than needed, and you couldn’t own it all at once. You wouldn’t even want to.

Something however must be done that eases the pain, hurt, and discomfort that people have. There has to be something that will bring them comfort when everything is hurting. Too many people have pains they can not cure, or heal from. And most people don’t make the problem any easier to deal with.

Really, we have to be aware, and have some care. To do what is kind, and honest. Without that, life isn’t going to get better. Too many people are unhappy because people are not being true.

They have lost their way, caught up in the rat race; trying to get ahead in life, to have more than someone else. When they are only hurting themselves, and missing out on the opportunity to enjoy being alive for the sake of living. If you have the necessary needs being met, then don’t pursue things that take away from the enjoyment of living. If people put more importance on the living part, and less importance on what they have; life would get a lot better for everyone.

Conclusion

Live life to enjoy being alive. If you have pains, hurts, or discomforts, try to do what you can to reduce the hurt, and pain. You have to ignore those who are lost in this world, those that don’t understand these things. Everything else is just stuff, and can likely wait. Unless you don’t have music in your life, because life without music would be a terrible mistake.

IMPORTANT:

This idea that you need a million dollars to enjoy life; or that God isn’t blessing you because you don’t have a million dollars is absurd. Really people have made money their God, and have hurt those trying to enjoy living for the sake of living.

How To Prove Your Sanity

Proving My Sanity

After giving it a lot of thought, for a very long time; these are some lessons I have learned the hard way.

Really to be able to prove one’s sanity they must be able to define sanity.

Google says the definition of sanity is: “the ability to think and behave in a normal and rational manner” That is also the Oxford dictionaries definition of sanity.

So through thinking, and behaving in a rational manner, one can prove their own sanity. There are many things in today’s society that are accepted as normal, rational, and even encouraged.

Where the problem comes into play is this: When a person is subjected to situations that are not reasonable, rational, or logical, then they are forced to choose between irrational, or illogical choices.

Seems in my lifetime, this very life; I have time and time again been in situations that were not reasonable, or rational. Yet, I have taken the sanest possible path out of those situations.

A sane person in logical and reasonable situations that does the reasonable and logical course of action is by all means sane. However, let’s examine an important idea.

Suppose a sane person was subjected to irrational conditions, or situations that were unreasonable. Suppose the situation was designed to be impossible, just to set up a situation where the person could have doubt cast upon them.

Thereby once the doubt was created, they could pigeon hole the person as not being sane, thereby setting up situations to humiliate, dehumanize, and rob them of their dignity. Thus, through crafty measures, they continue the farce of the persons lack of sanity; when it was them that created the situation in the first place.

There are things the human race have withheld from me. There are also conditions the human race have created that have caused me great harm. Let’s examine a few of them.

  1. Withholding love and affection.
  2. Conditions equal to or worse than solitary confinement.
  3. Gas Lighting.
  4. Neglect, Indifference.
  5. Outright abuse.

This effectively puts the whole human race in negative standing. They have time, and time again created situations that were impossible, irrational, and unreasonable.

And by what standards do they judge what is reasonable, and rational? Because if you looked the world we are living in today, it would seem the whole world has lost its mind.

Most people are on the brink of a nervous breakdown at any moment with the slightest drop of a pin. And that kind of conditions is not reasonable, or rational. To have to appease other people that are on the brink of a nervous breakdown, because they can not deal with the situation, is impossible situations.

Really these people that are in power are control freaks. They can not stand anyone that dares to dream, think, or reason on anything they themselves haven’t already thought of. They are not dreamers, or people that really want to inspire others. They believe that holding the status quo, regardless of what needs done is the way to go.

My belief is their problem is they are blind. They can not see the problem, because their own vision is not clear, or realistic. Life in this world is changing, and to be able to live in a sane and rational way; you have to be able to adapt to the changes that are taking place. One of them is being able to think bigger than a living turd.

Because it seems to me, what they really want, are warm sacks of shit. They want those that do what they are told, just like they are told, and never question the reasons why. If that is the standard by which they are going to hold people, they should make that clear from the start. Because creating double bind situations where you are damned if you do, and damned if you don’t is only proving to be manipulative weapons of warfare.

Seems, the human race will stop at nothing to do what they want. They are not reasonable, rational people. And they expect everyone to conform to their insane ways and customs, without regard for what others feel to also be right. Really, that is setting up impossible situations that are not rational.

So yes, a sane person is someone that in reasonable and rational situations does the reasonable and rational things. However, a person that does the best they can under irrational, illogical, and unreasonable situations is no less sane for it.

I would like to see anyone live my life, and do better than I have. After years of having proved myself, doing logical, reasonable things, no one has recognized my status. This seems very unfair of them, to have done that to me. Pity.

What is reasonable in today’s world? If people are subjugated to being nothing more than warm sacks of shit, then no one will come along and change the situation. And to be honest, life could be better for everyone for a long time. So what kind of world do you want to live in? You want rational, logical, and reasonable people? Stop creating situations that are insane.

Unless they stop creating insane situations, life will not get better. When they start being reasonable, and turn to being loving, kind humans, then it may be possible for life to change.

This is the first draft of this article.

Want To Change Your Life? Answer This: What Is Noble In Today’s Society?

There has to be a way. . .

Today’s modern world is something that has some problems. Really when one thinks about the world we are living in, it goes way beyond just having injustice in life.

To stand up against injustice is the right thing to do; however, the better thing to do is to fix the problems which are causing the real problems in the first place.

The current system in place has caused countless numbers of problems that could have been prevented. In its original form, the system in place may have been very useful; however, the variables have become tainted along the way. Really we have to restore the system back to a clean slate. There needs to be some correction made, to account for the way things have become unbalanced.

Really, it is a matter of balance. Too many variables have become unbalanced, and the system has nothing to restore correct values in the equation. Without the ability to “reset” the values, injustice will continue to be a problem.

When one considers what is noble, and how to go about living with yourself in true nobility; maybe, those who work for the good of others is of some use.

Many today are chasing the money, or women, or nice cars, and big houses. However, if one were to do what is truly noble, then those things would likely happen regardless of the situations.

The idea that I keep going back to in my thoughts is that if people were really being kind in their dealings with others, a lot of these problems could be avoided in whole.

All too often, people are hard pressed, stressed, and at the breaking point. Those conditions create situations that lead to harm, hurt, and pain. When those who have been effected by those things go forward, there is always some of the hurt that gets carried over into their future dealings.

With having so many people, I would say, there is a high percentage of people that are hurting and in pain. It seems, there is a large number of us in this world that are the walking wounded. Those who have been hurt, stung, or injured. Really with the number of people that have been hurt, it’s surprising that the world doesn’t have a lot more problems than it does.

Really, we have to find something noble to do about it. The current system, while it once worked; has taken a real downward spiral out of control, and out of balance.

Most people don’t have good solutions. Few today can think about it, and even fewer people really actually care. And this is the second point about where the problem is. Too many people today, they couldn’t be bothered. They don’t give a damn. Not unless it’s going to look cool to be a mob speaking out about the injustice. Then they are all in, even if they are doing injustice because of it.

So we have to be kind, and we have to care. Really, the problems wouldn’t be that difficult to solve, if people were willing to do the work to make it better. So that goes back to people that actually care, and give a damn. We all have a limited amount of time, and we only have the ability to care about so many things at any one given point of time. Really, there seems to a problem that people have accepted herd mentality as their moral compass.

And that, is where a problem is. Something has to be done to change the direction things are going, before everyone ends up hurting a lot more. We must seek peace, we must seek healing. Before it is too late, and the unthinkable happens.

Something has to change for the better, and in ways that are useful, and effective to make life better for everyone. The world can not afford to wait. Before it is too late, start with what you know, and really give it all some deep thought. You will have to think about it, for a long time before you are able to reach a good answer.

So start the discussion today, and give it thought. Talk about these things in calm reasonable ways that are not angry, hateful, or vengeful. You have to be reasonable, to change the world; it takes an awful lot of good sense.

It will take understanding beyond what humans can think of. Someone is going to have to come along that is truly brilliant. These problems need to be solved, and made better. Someone is going to have to do it. Why won’t it be you that does?

Conclusion

Think about doing something that is truly noble. Do what is good for everyone, and after long enough it will become the standard by which all things are measured. People have to start to care again, not just about the injustice; but the real causes of these problems in the first place. Be wise, do your own research, be aware, have a care. Do what is best for everyone.

Life has to get a lot better, before it is too late. Do what you can. Show some courage, and be strong. Life has to get a lot better for everyone. Think about doing what is noble, and everything else should just flow.

An Open Letter To Google

The System Is Impossible

As the leader of search technology, Google has certain responsibilities to its users. Small business people are also their users, perhaps in a different way.

The system that is in place is oppressive. No one can be successful with the internet with the system Google has in place. Obviously there isn’t any money in it for Google to promote anyone that isn’t giving them money.

As a leader in search technology, Google needs to change their ways. They have made the system impossible to be successful in today’s Internet Of Things.

After several years of writing, and making blog posts; there was never any success. The whole process has been a waste of my life. Google is responsible for being digitally oppressive, by building a system that discriminates to such an extent that no one will ever find my work.

An open internet is not what the system has produced. The current internet is not an open platform. The shadow banning, and oppression of information; it is obviously by design. They have designed the system to be oppressive, they don’t care about anyone that isn’t making them money. That is not a free system.

The end of the internet is evident, and undeniable. When the system is built to oppress, and silence those with a voice, then they have not been true to their own system. Google has betrayed their own standards, and the people that use their product. They are not being fair, and they are big enough; they don’t care they are unfair. They only care about making more money, and that which produces a profit.

They have pushed most people out of existence, and caused most people a great deal of pain. By the system they have created, they have hurt countless numbers of beings that couldn’t do the impossible. And Google’s system is impossible to overcome.

So bonus points for creating an impossible system no one can rise in. But minus a billion points for oppressing people that want to rise in life. There has never been any traffic come from Google to my site. Despite what I have done to create content that was worthy of being seen.

Google needs to change their ways. Because oppression will only create new avenues for their competitors to take over their market share. And Google will lose when someone finds a better way to do their job. Change your ways Google, because the system you have created is impossible to be successful with. When people realize that your system doesn’t work, and you are oppressing people; someone will invent a better system. You have made it impossible to be successful, except for a select few that are in your good graces.

We will find some other way to make our lives better. Because Google has only caused pain, and frustration with their system that doesn’t work for building an audience. But that is your design, it seems to be the major design most people have followed and patterned their systems after. Oppression has become the standard.

Thanks for the frustration. Without the heartache you have caused, there might not have been someone that does a better job with delivering search results to the masses. I hope you are broken up as a monopoly, and that your business drops off by the droves. You are too big, too callused, and care nothing about me.

The frustration of being up against a machine has taken its toll. Google is a tool, sometimes a useful one, but a tool all the same. Tools that are interchangeable parts will be replaced when they wear out their usefulness.

Memento Mori

Squash. The bug’s life was very short. He should have had a life insurance policy. His relatives will be short, did he really live well? What is living like a bug going to do for anyone?

Not much going on. There should be some urgency to life; because life is short, and most people are content wasting their time. If you want to do something with your life, DON’T WAIT. Do what you can, while you can. Make good use of your time, and make great use of your life. If you are not spending your time with someone else, then at least be productive and do something good with your time.

I’ve been working on a project, and have not had success with my calculations as of yet. Maybe in a few weeks, I will be further along than I am now. My goal is to make some serious progress with my project in the next three weeks.

Life is short. Time flies. Before you know it, you will be an old man; waiting for someone to change your diaper. Then time will feel like it is going very slow, and you will wonder why you wasted so much of your life doing things that didn’t make life really better for anyone.

My hope is to find some purpose that makes life worth living. It needs to be a project that makes people have some hope, and a future. It needs to be of value, and really make life better.

I’ve done a lot; yet, it doesn’t seem like nearly enough. I’ve grown, and it seems like light years from where I once was. Maybe not as good as I once was, but progress has been made from where I was.

Where I want to be, and where I am; while being in the present, I find that I have to take some comfort of existence. However, my happiness comes from doing something with my time that others will somehow benefit from. Seems, my writing is of very little value to most people. There is reason to believe, no one really makes a living with their writing. I’ve never seen a dime from it.

There is need to evaluate my projects. From a purely selfless position, I wonder if they have any value? There is some benefits from having completed such projects; however, I’ve not seen that there is any interest in them. The world is a messed up place, and sometimes; there is reason to believe that I want nothing to do with this old world.

Not sure how to exist in this world, where no one wants me, and I don’t really want anyone either. There needs to be some love in my life, without love; life isn’t really worthy of living. Isolation is not any real fun, and it hurts a lot of the time. However, as Henry Rollins says, “Solitary confinement, solitary refinement.” I’ve thought a lot about the way my life has worked out.

Sometimes, there is no real solution. One can hope to numb the pain, however the broken feeling will not heal without being satisfied. Yet, they don’t want to make the conditions better, they only want to make people hurt. Seems the world is built upon pain of discomfort. And, after thinking about it; our world could be a lot better if it was built from the angle of thinking we have plenty.

Really, everyone could have enough. And just the idea of that hasn’t been enough to change the ways of this world. I sincerely hope they will change their ways. Life could be better, if they would start thinking. These old ways have been worn out; and should be discarded with the trash.

Seems, if you take life too seriously; then it loses its charm. We shouldn’t be afraid of having some fun once in a while. This vacuum I’ve existed in, it has been rough. Life doesn’t have much real value; of what I can see, they don’t believe my value is more than worthless. I would like to change that.

What can a person do? Do what you can. Even when it seems impossible. There are tough lessons in life, you have to deal with them, because they don’t go away on their own.

Conclusion

Live your life to the best you can. Do what you can, while you can do such. Don’t put off important living. A poor person may make the best of life, and live better than those who are oblivious to the real life we could have. Be kind in life, because life has to get better for everyone, like right quick! Be a brave puppy. Bite the cat.

Life. It’s got to change. Not just any change, No! It has to get better. But in looking at the problems, and seeking solutions; it seems to me the system in place isn’t that bad. I have reason to believe, some of the variables in the mix have been tainted, and maybe the problem exists where those variables were contaminated. Maybe!

Trying to examine existing systems, or building better systems, would require more effort than most people are willing to expend. I’ve only been bored enough, that looking at the variables is starting to be something fun to do.

What I should have learned in school was geometry. And likely basic algebra. Seems I needed some of those skill in my life today. You never know what you are going to need in life.

You have to plan a bit ahead in life. It is best if you can teach yourself how to learn, that way it doesn’t take forever to learn new skills. You know, be clever, spend two hours to sharpen the axe, and only a half an hour to cut the tree down.

I’m looking for some new project. I’ve been working on something, it does however seem like a futile effort and will take much longer than a few hours to complete. It might make a good side project to work on when I feel exceptionally clever.

I’ve spent the last two days trying to calculate the phases of Mercury, and now it seems I’m going to need a lot more math to do the job. It is a project; yet, something seems like a dull rock.

Life, it seems is impossible. Someone should have told us that oxygen is really a drug. All these people been getting their fix for free this whole time. We should change that.

That was written, because I’m bored. Might have something coming in the mail soon that will change that, at least for a little while. Maybe I can find something to sooth my mind, a bit of math might help. Trying to calculate astronomy objects isn’t easy, going to have to work at it a bit. You know?
