on a cold summer night, i hit the woods
to disconnect for a little while
when i threw away all the goods
and i let my thoughts fly
some good music was playing with the sound of nature
i cant hear but the sound of silence
i hear my own thoughts again, after a long break
i try to stay grounded but im lightheaded
im flying away to the sound of crickets and bats
i look to the ground to see my shadow
then i look up to see people wandering just as i was
i can feel a happy vibe, it just isn’t with me yet
i will make it mine someday, i will be the person i want to be happy.
As the title puts it, I’m taking some of the notes I write on a notebook and I’m posting them here. This blog post isn’t the first one I took from this notebook, but it will be the start of a sequence of blog posts that may or may not be related. I’ll add dates to the blog posts so that you know that I did not spontaneously come up with the idea. Honestly, I almost never come up with an idea quickly. Anyways, this was a long introduction to this post. I hope you enjoy it!

Okay so no I’m in a new life; university, living on my own, and NEW PEN. (If this ends up on my blog, I am such a loser when it comes to ideas)
I felt the need to express myself, although I don’t feel from who I am (or at least who I believe I am).
This notebook turned from a song book to a book of ideas expressed by me (Captain Obvious). I don’t know how to feel about this.
Now the real deal. Have you ever been in a “fight” with someone you really cared for, and now this friendship is just dust particles, sound waves and memories? I’m sure I have. When you try to make up for things, it gets worse instead of getting better. According to me previous note (and in this case, blog), I said that being a good person might be the only ticket to heaven when you’re in your own hell. I’m still positive about that. Being a good person will never fail you. It will put you back up and tell you that the fight is worth it, struggling will pay off, and it will always end well.
NEVER FORGET THIS.
BE A GOOD PERSON.
You try to be the worst person you can be until you realize that your worst is simply too good. Not until you have to face reality does being good hit you in the face.
It’s not fair how the good die young (Scorpions reference). It’s not the physical death you know of. Imagine yourself dying just to lay down in flames.”Wow, I’m a crappy person” and you try to escape it but it’s too late to fix anything. Sometimes being too good doesn’t pay off instantly; it’s probably just the ticket to heaven that you need when you’re in your own hell.
Never underestimate your power to be the best person you can be. It has no limit what so ever. Just be the person you want other people to be with you (except if you wouldn’t mind being flushed down the toilet).
“What am I getting from this?” You’re probably not getting more than a sincere “Thank You”, probably a friendly hug too.
Why do this? Because it is the right thing to do. Because you are human just like every other person in this world.
The feeling you give someone when you help them is probably the best feeling in the world.
Do yourself a favor; help others. It’ll pay off. I promise.
Stay awesome and don’t be a Chris, keep blogging!
Many of my classmates notice me writing down some lyrics during philosophy period. It’s not that i dont like philosophy. It’s just that lyrics express my point of view better than plain text.
Considering what my teacher tells us (that philosophy is a way of thinking and not static material), i prefer to write down my lyrics during philosophy periods, inspired by the specific lesson or topic we’d be discussing.
Point of this anecdote is that you should have your own philosophy i.e. your own ideas and your own way of expression. If it’s through public talks, then do so. If it’s through music, do that. All that matters is that you express yourself and let the world know how you think.
It doesnt really matter when people tell you your opinion doesnt matter. Every single word that comes out of your beautiful mind can affect the world in some way.
Don’t be afraid of expressing, one day you’re going to pass away with all your ideas. Make them matter.
