Just write ideas.
I feel more in-tune. Life has meaning. Everything’s a phase.
I should journal more and just write how things sit in my head. Sometimes, I think about what I’m saying too much.
This is year 23. This brings stuff with it:
I think questions are probably meant to be answered. I think about Joe Rogan. How we all communicate and trade information is really important. I’m interested in investing in the broadest sense possible. I listen to way too much JRE, probably.
I’m interested in the WHY behind what I think and believe. There’s another layer to most things, we just can’t see them or don’t have the mental bandwidth to care. I feel farther away when I’m high. That’s a metaphor. Don’t quote me on that. Poetry is real.
I want my own foundation. Desires are weird.
Mac Miller. The fact he died right before the darkest and brightest part of my life makes me really think. On this side, I find clouds say more when you think less.
23 is a pretty intense age, actually. It’s the part where most young adults get thrown into the pool. Now is when you really start swimming. It’s also good you haven’t drowned yet.
Education is kinda like a big diving board. You spend your whole life climbing the ladder. It’s hard to stay on because you want to get in. But it’s better to jump from high up. Meanwhile everyone else takes a dip — they’re coolin’ off — getting their feet wet, so to speak. But you stay on the cold, metal ladder because it’s worth it; the jump is better from a higher platform.
I’m on that diving board. It’s nice to look out and see the horizon and have a little bit of perspective. It’s great getting to that level. But then you realize “oh shit, I have to jump.” I have more to lose.
But the irony is everyone gets in the same pool. We all have to swim and everybody learns from a different angle. That’s kinda how 23 feels.
Looking up is fun. Looking down, not so much.
Sun is important.
I have shorter ideas when I write in this actual Medium.
Medium is such an amazing app. It’s not about writing, it’s about organizing. How can you organize your thoughts and ideas into a productive story.
It would be dope having actual pen and paper that could put writing into an online shareable form.
How do we make that a thing?
What if there was a way to combine the physical sensation of writing on paper into Medium?
I think journaling is better with pen and paper. Like real handwriting. Digital utensils are not the same. When you write by hand, you think in faster, simpler terms I’ve found.
Come to think of it, I’d rather this be in my journal, where it belongs.
