I once heard that time is money, but since I've been working I've realized that time is worth so much more than money. I feel bad for those people who don't get to spend time with their loved ones or their friends because they have no time. Their time gets consumed by their jobs and their responsibilities that come with being an adult. Ironically the shirt that I'm wearing says, "Don't grow up, it's a trap." It really is a trap.
As I write this blog on Sunday night, the desk in front of me is covered in accounting homework for my class on Tuesday. While some people just see paper, I see time. When I was in high school and even grade school I always procrastinated. It was awful. But now that I'm twenty-one years old I try to no longer do that. My time has become my most valuable asset and I don't just give it up anymore. All we really have is now. Sure we have calendars and "plans" for the future but none of us really know if we'll be around that long. Depressing, sure, but it's the truth regardless of those who don't want to hear it. I notice this a lot with society nowadays. I feel like people don't want to hear the truth anymore. They are more comfortable with lies rather than knowing the truth and being hurt by it. Personally I have mixed feelings about it because I can understand both sides yet I think I would prefer always hearing the truth despite how much it may hurt.
At times I feel as if humanity is lost. I feel like it'll never find it's way again and that we are all eventually doomed... But sometimes I think about how many people are trying to make a difference in the world and trying to do good. Maybe it's your religion or maybe it's your morals. Regardless of whatever drives those people I hope that they continue to do so.
I want to make a difference in this world. What it is I'm not quite sure, perhaps it's me sitting in front of the computer screen writing these blogs or me taking photos to show the beauty in the world for those who think there is none left. All I know is I want to make the world a better place.
