This is your life....

Are you who you want to be?

Just to start out the night of studying with a little raw philosophy. Has anyone ever noticed that unwise choices come out of anticipation of a looming test? I just remembered that I have one tomorrow, and what am I doing, my dear, but typing out a message for you. Despite the recent slump in posts, I'm trying to make a comeback with this thing, and that would mean chatting with you, my dear, on a semi-regular basis.

So I start again with this simple question: This is your life, are you who you want to be?

Do you wake up every morning, look in the mirror, and tell yourself that you think you're awesome? Of course not. That would indicate either insanity issues, because you're talking to yourself, or narcissistic issues, because you think you're so God-damned amazing. Truth is, children, if you don't like who you are today, if you can't look in the mirror and say "I'm proud of who I am, what I do, how I feel, my opinions," what can you say? What can you say for yourself, for your life? How do you deal with the husk of life that you have become?

You change.

That's all that needs to happen. A lot of time it happens naturally, sometimes you try to force it, sometimes you just need a brand new car to drive your middle-aged wife around in. But you change, and so do the people around you. We adapt to our new environments.

But, dear readers, if you can't see yourself changing, and my words of unconscious change shock you, frighten you, make you want to hide under your bed, scare you, fret not. We keep the basics as a base.

You will continue to fear. You will continue to be happy on occasion, sad on occasion, angry on occasion.

You will continue to love, dear readers, and that's all that matters in this world.
