Time Going Faster?

Why is it that when you're having fun time seems to go faster? I really wish I could change that around. I wish that time would go faster when your not having fun! If time went slower when you were having fun you wouldn't have to spend the slow times wishing for the fast. Life wouldn't be a breeze it would be the sun; bright and all consuming.

Is success something you can achieve? Or is it something only you can establish? Are you yourself in charge of your own success. Or is it already destined to be? If you are a teacher or poet can you be considered more successful than someone who's a brain surgeon or someone who cured cancer? And if it is something to achieve, who determines who's successful and who's not. Who decides?

The Future of Ashes! (excerpt from story idea)

The date is January 1st, 2013. It's New Years, but the sky is the only thing that's new. Where once stood factories now...there is only ash. Looking out the cave where I have spent most of my last couple weeks I can see barren lands, smoke...death, lots of death. I wonder if I'm the only one here anymore. If I'm the only one who can call myself human. Sure, I've seen other beings...but they've gone cold. Their eyes gone bloodshot. Their minds?...Just gone.
As I continue to stare out of my solitary cave I see movement. The first movement I've seen in days. The ashes moving restlessly, and out of the ashes they were born! Demons climbing out of the ashes! Their red eyes and claws searching out something to eat, and as I stand their watching I realized....This was my future I was watching... My future; the future of Ashes.

Money...Why was it even made? Did one person wake up one day and say "this could be worth something"? What would society be like if there was no such thing as money? Would people walk into a store and grab what they needed and walk out? There would be less theft! People wouldn't need to steel stuff if it was free. People would be doing the jobs they wanted to without having to worry about how much college costs. Is that the key to a Utopian Society? It would never happen in a million years, but is that the key? It would be nice to know. It would be nice to experience that kind of Society, even if it only lasted for a second.

Me and the World

"I noticed today that I like to learn about other people. I like to dissect other people's minds until I know everything about them. I like to find out everything that makes people tick. I like to judge that person afterwards. I don't judge them by their personality though, I judge them on the way their personality would fit mine. So, I judged my own personality and assume that that personality is ultimate. Am I right to match other people's personality to mine? No, but I'm not the only one to do it. Everyone, from the moment they acquire their personality, starts judging other people by the way they themselves are. We are a world of biases and I just noticed it."

Caught Cheating?

The End of Darkness

"When you walk down a long hall to find the end of the light; you find darkness. Why is it that when you search for the end of darkness you just find more?"

Minstrel Man by: Langstan Hughes

Because my mouth
Is wide with laughter
And my throat
Is deep with song,
You do not think
I suffer after
I have held my pain
So long?

Because my mouth
Is wide with laughter,
You do not hear
My inner cry?
Because my feet
Are gay with dancing,
You do not know
I die?

P.S. I chose to post this one because it kinda goes perfectly after the last one that I posted. Oh, and don't make any conection to the fact that this writer is already dead and the irony that you probably see. lol... I mean....that's rude! (lol XD)

We Wear the Mask by: Paul Dunbar

WE wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.

We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!

P.S. I chose to post this on my blog because there can be many different ways to interpret it. I wont say what I think this means because it's really for you to decide what it means to you. And I wont try to tell you who Paul Dunbar is and his whole life story because you probably already heard it or are going to sometime in your life.

Bad Book

Seeing is believing

"People rely on the saying 'seeing is believing'. So why are dreams just dreams? You see it, it's there. If seeing is believing, then believe that you don't just dream, you travel." ~Danielle Standiford
