1 Mythology : Greek Mythology
” In the beginning there was only chaos. Then out of the void appeared Erebus, the unknowable place where death dwells, and Night. All else was empty, silent, endless, darkness. Then somehow Love was born bringing a start of order. From Love came Light and Day. Once there was Light and Day, Gaea, the earth appeared. Then Erebus slept with Night, who gave birth to Ether, the heavenly light, and to Day the earthly light. Then Night alone produced Doom, Fate, Death, Sleep, Dreams, Nemesis, and others that come to man out of darkness.” (The Creation of the World)

damn i’m so conflicted why am i like this every day damn
Today I feel more like blogging than literally writing.
Do you sometimes feel like some dreams are far-but-not-that-far? Like they are actually in front of you, but you just somehow let it go for various reasons.
I have ambitions. I want to be good. But sometimes, I don‘t know how to define good. Being that model student? Maybe. And there are times when I just don;t know how things work, but they just turned out to be away from me.
Is it fear? Fear of changing, fear of doing things that you weren’t used to do. I have a problem with changes, especially changes on myself. I quit changing myself. Some says being yourself is good, and perhaps I am too absorbed at being myself that I am afraid when I change, I will not be unique. So they say teenage girls mind how people think of them, so maybe I am one of them. I care when people think I am not special, not with an outstanding character anymore.
And maybe I am juts not brave enough to take that step. That step out of your comfort zone. So easy to tell, so hard to do.
So maybe I really need to take that one step.
I sometimes wonder what my dreams are.
Or more precisely, what I am good at.
That is the question I have been asking myself for years. I mean, I am pretty good at some stuff. Just pretty good. I can manage usual sports pretty well. I know music and play it. I also write pretty good stuff and gets an above-average grade. But I just never seem to very very good at one thing.
And okay, let just say I am already better than the average in those things. So what is my dream?
It was the past year that I finally came to understanding that you can never have too many dreams if you want to fulfill them. People actually asked me what I want to major in in college. And honestly I DON’T KNOW.
I have one very very faraway dream: to write a book. But I seriously have no idea how to even get that started.
And then I was thinking if I could do anything government/society-related since I do get involved in social issues.
And then when you start to face failures… you just get hit with a brick in your face.
But as what people say, you try and try and try again, right? I am not even sure if it is worth all the trying, or should I give up and pursue something more of the worth?
Next to nothing for use.
But a crop is a crop,
And who’s to say where
The harvest shall stop?
