A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

Saltwater Lifecycle

Well, I won't even pretend to be under the assumption that there is still a soul who reads any of the written word of this blog heh; the tidal wave of life finally caught up... a crippling wave of thought, chaos and unmade decisions striking in a single blow. They say that one of the important things to do in life is to build roots; a foundation of values and morals that keeps one steadfast at the most turbulent of times. But if nothing is truly certain in life, how can it have the stability of dry land? Maybe we really are all just in an ocean. We try hard to build a boat that can sustain us, and give us a greater ability to determine our direction, and therefore our fate. While our "boats" are made up of our values, morals, and beliefs, they are not permanent. We cannot prepare for every possibility. Sometimes the beliefs we held most dear must be put aside in the face of a situation that is too novel to use traditional tactics. Like the ocean, an eternal entity of liquid that can take any form, we must be willing to activate our formidable imaginations once in awhile and create our own unique solutions. Of course, this only leads to a new question. Will the creations of the mind bring peace, or suffering; sanity, or madness? As the creations of men burst forth from the sea, what became of the weary travelers who drift across this vast expanse? Even when the soul perishes, the story it wrote in life lives on. And out of that same sea, another life is given it's deck of cards, and placed into the storm...

I think it's time for a reboot.
