    Way Too Short

    The (global) average life span for a human is (roughly) 67.2 years (taken from a study this year). That is roughly 24,528 days. When you can take away 8,395 of those days because I am 23, to me that seems like a very short amount when you put in in context of time and how long...

    Fading Away...

    Time Is Of The Essence!

    I really do believe life is too short to waste time, that's why I'm here, on EP, procrastinating! I mean I could be putting up that shelf in the bathroom instead of typing this, in fact I should be doing exactly that but I'm tired, I'd only mess it up, so I'm putting aside my...

    Sometimes It Just Hits Me!

     That it's extremely likely that I am probably more than halfway done. Done!! I have no fear of death whatsoever. But I do fear that when I get "home" I'll not have done the things that are genuinely important!! OR worse yet..I'll have to come back!!
