Perhaps these are the emotions I've been trying to escape from?
Somehow unconnected things are converging in real time as I talk to different people and read different things.
'Life is short'—I hear that all the time, but when my mom tells me it doesn't seem so long ago that I was a baby? Indeed, it went by in a flash.
I wrote down a list of goals and a list of values (always with a pinch of salt, please...)* After examining my life, I figured that a lot of what I'm doing now doesn't seem to be in accordance with them. OK, so I stop playing stupid games and reading thrilling mangas. I live the life that's 'right' and well-trodden. Only it doesn't make me feel any better, because the prescribed path doesn't seem to ring true either.
OK, so I have to figure something out on my own.
That's all right. 'In perseverance, no one can beat you', was it?
I suppose it's time to apply myself and work hard, but I really have to choose—hard at what? A hard worker had better be working hard at the right thing, because, well
Well, because life is short!
*my main takeaway from the article is just: know your goals, know your values, work towards them. Simple!
