I haven’t been around for ages, I know. I wanted to blog about something but I wasn’t quite sure what I could blog about. So as soon as something popped into my really dead head, I decided to write away!
Recently, I got the shock of my life (maybe a wee exaggeration) when my friend didn’t know what I was talking about when I saw a pyramid perched on top of a bank, and then starting from that scene to my discussing politics and history and conspiracy theories (I’m really into conspiracies hehe). I do not endorse my beliefs concerning any sects or occults or whatever so I shall not state any, but the point is she wasn’t aware of it’s existance either! The things I was talking about were absolutely new for her, and we aren’t exactly new to this world if you know what I mean.
Selective ignorance is how I’d describe it. I love my share of movies and drama but I’m never really up to date about the lives of Josh Hutcherson or Emma Stone or whoever. I can’t watch every video Superwoman or Marcus Butler has posted onto youtube. She, on the other hand, knows EVERYTHING.
I’m not criticising on what she knows, what bugs me is that all of this does not affect our own everyday lives, and the stuff that does affect us, she has no clue of it. How are we supposed to actually grow if we don’t know about the basics? Why should I not be aware of the deeper politics infiltrating every single day that I breathe?
And yes, I had a face that said “You’re kidding!” when she told me she didn’t know it, but it’s still not too late. If you guys don’t know about what’s happening in the world, then go find out. It might be happening a thousand miles away but it sure affects you. Get your history and geography right, we should know all of this!
Yes, we have small, maybe even insignificant, places in this world, but as Horton puts it, “A person is a person no matter how small” you are still a person! A soul, a life, and I doubt you’re here without a reason. Why would we be here if there was no reason? A daft idea if you ask me! You breathe out to the world, make sure it’s not ignorant. Make sure you send out intellectual vibes. Start building the side of you that’s way more fun to build, the satisfaction and happiness you’ll get when you see your brain chugging away! Happy sighing.
And so with that, I’ll come to an end. I shall try to write something cool creatively, and not make it a month before I post.
Take care, read away.
P.S. Could anyone guess what I meant by the pyramids on top of the bank?
