I exist in a societal vacuum

| | 0 Comments

I’m in society but I’m not really in society. I spend a lot of my time alone. I have loose physical ties to any one place. I can pick up and be anywhere else in the world and my life would continue on without much interference. Obviously it takes a lot of societal participation to […]

You spend a lot of time working on your art. Writing blog posts, making songs, creating videos, painting, dancing, coding, building the next Facebook. All of your free time is consumed by your need to create something that moves the world. The only thing is that nobody knows that you’re doing it. You create in […]

| | Comments Off on The benefits of thinking I’ll become a billionaire

I’ll never forget the time when I woke up and started believing that I would become a billionaire. Aside from believing that I would become a billionaire, I was also taking steps towards realizing that dream. I was living in Brazil (Brazil has a lot of billion dollar problems that need to be solved). I was reading books […]

I’m writing the second blog post that I intend to publish today. Blogging is a maddening thing. I like writing but everything else I hate. Rather, I should say it gives me some level of anxiety to think about the other things that go into blogging. There are no easy answers for a lot of […]

Once upon a time I stumbled upon a blog that had only a handful of posts. There were several posts that were published in a spurt. Then the author stopped. A few months later he started up again, but not before making a post about how he started up again. Then after one or two […]

The situation I walked into reminded me a bit of the Frenchman in Barcelona. There were a group of guys speaking their own language in a country that spoke another hovering around their charismatic leader.

I used to sit around fantasizing about a certain lifestyle that I wasn’t living. I knew what it would take to get there but it would take time to make it a reality. I wanted it right then and there. That wasn’t going to happen though. Instead of accepting where I was and appreciating where […]

| | Comments Off on 13 Adventures To Look Forward To

I’m in the middle of a project right now, and I’m encountering severe resistance to actually doing the thing that I committed to. The only thing that my mind can think about is all of the other things I’d rather be doing than finishing what I’ve started right now. Instead of fighting against it, I’m […]
