    Just Merely Survival

    Can't believe how thing everyday went to be so common, I live in an ordinary life which is the only goal is just a merely survival. Live an ordinary and predicted life is so boring. Same things happen day by day. Nothing to be expected to happen.

    Still Figuring Out

    As I sit here in my room locked away from the crowd. I feel tied down. I am locked in my room as I wait for a change a turning point in my life. I miss those lovely walks along the crowd those smiles I received and gave those strangers. I am bewildered by horns of vehicles on...

    Seriously, it is so complex nobody can figure it out just like that. (or maybe it is the simplest thing ever and we dont even know)

    Misnomer

    It's A Process

    I wonder if there's anyone who really feels they have life "figured out" at least for themselves, and knows exactly "who they are."  I feel as though I'm constantly learning new things about myself and life everyday, and it's things that I think I...

    If Anyone Has Figured It Out...

    I believe that the entire world could fit into this group. Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to figure out life and it's meaning. Hey, that's where religion came from. I believe that we'll never stop learning about ourselves and life in general. In a way, I'm...

    Neverending Task

    I don't believe we ever stop "figuring life out". As we grow, our brains change and we learn different things, which then prompt us to behave differently, and the process goes on and on until we return to the place from which we came.
