    On this long road I was driving.

    Round and round. I wasn't lost. I was free. The steer in my grip, the pedal on my feet. Then a stranger held out his arm from the road side, "I'm lost. Could you take me?" Just like that he entered from the backdoor. Asking questions. Asking for permissions. Conversations...

    Does Grass Is Greener On the Other Side?

    I lived most of my life in Poland, then I moved to the States. The 10th aniversary is coming and I'm longing to be somwhere else. Then the other side of me wants something permanent. But not here and not back in the Poland. I always think that somewhere else I'll find peace and...

    I don't know what to do

    or what to study. I majored in philosophy and I felt as though I failed at doing well enough to continue my studies in it. This depresses me greatly; there was a time when I loved philosophy and wanted to do nothing else. I just feel lost and utterly unsure of myself right now.

    I'm not really certain what it is I am supposed

    to do, or if there is even an expected role for me. I grew up an academic, and excelled at every topic I was ever confronted with, with the exception at math. For some reason, in the classroom, I can't apply math or remember formulas, but in the "real world," I can apply it...

    (Originally posted on May 4,

    2013) I am constantly asked "What do you want to be when you grow up?". It gets so annoying because I don't f*cking know! I don't know what I am best at, or who I am supposed to be. I just keep changing. And I'm 16.

    I'm still trying to find it, but I don't expect to be completely satisfied with it until the day I die. If I did, I obviously did not live my life right, since I want my life to be an endless search for knowledge and acceptance and love. I want it to be a changing life, so that...

    What to Do?

    I think finding your place can have a lot to do with your job. I am unhappy in my job. I want to do something that helps other people. I think I'm getting closer to what I want to do, but only time will tell.
