    My Sob Story

    I spent 4 years and a small fortune earning my undergrad degree just to feel like I've learned nothing.  I went back to college to get a post-grad diploma for a year, and I'll be done in 3 weeks.  I haven't worked since the summer after undergrad because I feel like I...

    What is life? Is life just a fault in The

    organization of matter? Is our consciousness just a mistake? Purely a illusion with no purpose at all? In my mind is The only place where i am truly free and i think to my deepest insurrections, but from what i perceive from people, i think they are kind of blind, with a limited...

    I came to a recent understanding about my time.

    I am not to live by my own free will. My natural instinct directs me in a way that made me come to realize its not my own feelings I choose to live by but its the guidance of its creation that leads this life I thought I called my own. We share this body,we share this time and...

    I have days (many) when I feel very empty inside

    and dissatisfied... Today is one of them. Not necessarily because something has happened to make it a "bad day", just days where nothing satisfies some yearning inside me. I know I "shouldn't" feel this way by many standards; I have a good job, nice home, and a good family...

    Lost Expectations
