What Am I?

What am I?

I am a human. The product of millions of years of evolution. I’m the descendant of a of a long line of anscestors. I am the latest organism of my genetic line created by the harsh environment. I am superior to my predecessors and yet inferior to my successors. I am the part of the generation on which the world’s hope rests. I am the force that strives towards the future.

What am I?

I am a student. An empty mind waiting to be filled with knowledge. I am someone easily influenced, hardly knowledgeable. I am soft clay, shaped by my environment. I am curious. I am eager. I am extraordinary.

What am I?

I am a biological machine, part of a greater society. I am a worker. I am what drives this world forward. I strive for success. I crave for achievement.

What am I?

I am a collection of atoms, forged in a distant star, carried by a comet. I am part of the ever growing universe. I am the soul which exists between both space and time. I am bound to nothing, and attached to everything. I am the truth of this universe.

What am I?

I am strong. I am pure. I am true. I am life itself. I am an unstoppable force and a caring gesture. I am full of energy yet so mellow. I see nothingness but I shape everything.

What am I?

I am a person who gazes at the stars and wonders: “What am I?”

My Bucket List

This is my bucket list. A list of all the things I want to do with my life. A very cringey and weird list, albeit. Maybe several years later, my older self will read this list, and he’ll think- “What the fuck was I thinking when I made this?” and he’ll feel immense amounts of cringe creep into him. I won’t write the obvious things like “Having sex” or “Kissing a girl” or “Solving a mystery” because they’re to obvious and will only add to the cringiness of this already cringey list. Here we go:

1.Survive a proper car crash

2.Break a bone (seriously, I haven’t broken a bone yet. I just want bragging rights)

3. I want to drink Coke and Mentos directly after

4. I want to throw water balloons at random people and record their reactions

5. I want to see the Aurora Boraliels in Iceland

6.  Drink some beer (before I reach the legal age)

7.Go to Germany, and yell “Heil Hitler” at the top of my voice in the middle of a busy town square.

8. Shoot a watermelon, with a real gun

9. Proceed to eat the watermelon shot by  said gun

10. Go skydiving in Switzerland

11. Learn to play the piano

12. Become more extroverted (according to several tests I’m an ambivert)

13. Ride a bike, while holding a turtle, while racing past a hare (as in a grown rabbit) yelling “Slow and steady doesn’t win you the race, motherfucker!”

14. Meet Usain Bolt.

15. Prove that the answer to life the universe and everything, is indeed 42

16. Show all my materialistic friends that money won’t make their lives

17.Aquire a flamethrower

18. Write a book

19. Publish that book

20.Have a real down to earth food fight

21. Get a pen pal from the other side of the world

22. Write a proper letter, with a postage stamp,and mail it to my friend

23. Write something that offends people’s opinions and get at least a 100 people pissed at me

24. Read one of Shakespheares plays

25. Become a lawyer 

26. Write a sentence which has a hundred and fifteen words in it 

27. Understand the ending of Inception

28. Adopt a penguin

29. Stop being lazy

30. And for my final item in my list- I want to die. 

I know no.30 was a bit pessimistic and cynical, but eventually we’ll all die. I wanted something in this list that I eventually will accomplish, with a 100%guarantee.

What’s you bucket list? 

Mind-Blown

Imagine yourself. Just yourself. Imagine every cell making up your tissues. Imagine every tissue making up your organs. Imagine all the organs that make up you. Now imagine every single atom which has come together to form each and every cell, tissue and organ. 

Now imagine yourself again. Imagine your mom, only younger. Imagine your dad, only younger. Imagine your grandparents, the generation before them, the generation before them as well. Imagine their lives, their youth, their age, their face. Imagine how they met each other and from the how the next generation sprung up. Keep on imagining. Now go farther through time. Imagine our earliest ancestors. Primates, monkeys, Neanderthals whatever you know them as. Imagine how they lived, the point of their existence.

Now go back even farther, to the age of beasts. When gigantic creatures roamed the earth, when weird plants grew on a foreign soil, when nature was just stretching it’s legs. Now imagine those very chain reactions which lead to the earth being what it is now. Tectonic plates, evolution, rotation of the moon: all of it.

Go back even farther. When the universe as we know it was just a baby. When the earth and everything now on it were just scrambled molecules, forged in a distant far away sun, floating about aimlessly. Those very molecules make you up now. Your very cells are made of those star-forged molecules. So go do something useful with these molecules. Give them an aim, as they now hold your consciousness.

In other words STOP READING THIS AND GO DO SOMETHING USEFUL.
