Stargazing

I've always loved watching the sky and the stars ever since I was a child. I still have my telescope that I used as a kid, but couldn't understand all the technical stuff like lens sizes etc.

Often when I drink with friends, I end up lying on the grass and just staring into the sky. It was a cool experience. I noticed the longer I stared at the sky, the more stars I would see. Once we were camping, and I was doing my usual stargazing, and I saw 3 shooting stars within 10 minutes. It was amazing. I had a WHOAH DID YOU SEE THAT moment with my friend xD.

The thing that always fascinates me about looking up at the night sky is that it always reminds me of how insignificant I am compared to all that's around us. The seemingly endless universes dusted with stars makes us look.. well.. smaller than bacteria. Often we get caught up in our lives like it's the biggest thing out there. So it's a nice break from reality.

A fact for you guys, my last name is Starr. Ironic, huh?

its not ironic at all, its actually the opposite. If you didnt like looking at Stars then that would be ironic. I'm into the same stuff. I've always gaze up now and then...it never gets old. Its pretty amazing.
