Iao Valley, Maui
Hello, hello. i decided to do an update blog. i have no idea how many people actually read (or care) about what i do/say but considering i'm lounging on Maui at the moment (with nothing to do i might add), i think i can afford to at least let the two of you reading know wsup.Quickie Update- i'm going to sf state for college
- i'm going to south africa in july
- i'm actually doing alright in school
- i started skateboarding and i'm slowly improving
- i don't listen to that much hip hop anymore
- i'm becoming friends with some great people
- i saw bloc party in concert (!!!)
- i love journalism (from design to writing)
- umm, my faith in God is growing yet, i find myself doubting myself...
So where is my mind nowadays? right now it's questioning life and what it is i'm doing. sometimes it seems like a never ending routine. Now, although i am a man rooted in the christian faith, I can't help but throw a giant question mark at God. I've just observed my life, my so called "purpose" (at least the one our society has labeled on me) and tried to come to a conclusion. People around me have been acting crazy. I've
been acting crazy. This world has been acting crazy. The other day my stepfather asked me which was worst, Slavery
or the Holocaust
. He said slavery was worse because we can still feel the repercussions of it today. However, i told him that Slavery only effects Black Americans
. The Holocaust has touched almost every continent and everyone. Regardless of that, my generation hardly knows much of either events to really feel which is worse. Furthermore, my concern is more with the middle east and the oncoming conflict that will most likely become WWIII.
But, when a nuclear warhead hits somewhere i'll draw my concern back up then (i'm way too jaded by war and propaganda to even care haha).
it's funny i laughed there. Nowadays, laughter seems to be the most one can do to get by. But even then, it's temporary. Even the faith that i hold and would die for cannot be touched and can only be felt so much. it seems as if everything is becoming more and more ethereal.
But i'm hanging on. You should too! There's always someone out there having a worse time than you are. it's so weird when my pessimism meets my optimism.
Have a wonderful week everyone.<3
