    There's a void which exists.

    it nags inside of all of us. To be purposeful. To leave legacy. To make a change. To unit. To just not live a lifeless existence here on Earth. Some people barely make it out of the womb or to a sweet 16 let alone 30! Let's rejoice. Let's unite. What are problems you wish to...

    Military Service

    I see that as the most effective way of being part of something. The United States Marine Corps in particular. Get paid to carry a rifle to boot

    Will There Be Something That I Can Be Proud Of?

     When I sit alone in my apartment I get to thinking. I think about what I want out of life (at least sometimes). Do I want to go to college? Do I want to be what society deems is correct? What do I really want? I want to be proud of what I do. I want to enjoy doing it. I...

    I Want To Feel Alive!

    I lay in my bed often, thinking to myself how much I want to be apart of something. Many ideas flow through my deep thoughts. I surf the internet to find something, such as a place I can be apart of. There is something out there for me.

    I just want to figure out my passion.

    What can I be successful at to make the world a better place? I just want an answer I feel like what I'm doing isn't making the impact I want, but I don't know what I want.

    42 And Nowhere, No One.

    I need to be something and I have no idea what. I haven't grown up, not making any money and I have a fierce need to create that is getting less and less by day. I'm just waiting to not be. I need a direction!
