Know what strikes me as strange, yet perfectly normal?

I feel like a movie extra all the time. While the plenty of the world goes out and makes history, me and several other billion people remain unnoticed by each other, and not to mention those people going out and making history.

I don't know, I just feel sort of small. Like no matter what I do... none of it is going to be remebered in a hundred years. People know the stories of great authors and world leaders and athletes and scientists. People tell their stories.

But who is going to tell my story? What's the worth of me doing anything if no one even remembers it? Just... why bother?

Just pondering. :)

then do something to be remembered. I often find myself pondering the same thing, will i be remembered by my grandchildren and no one else? will i write a book that actually catches? will i become a great lawyer or scientist? or even a military leader if i end up staying the course? its all so curiously awful and wonderful, because would anything be worth doing if we didn't have the goal to be remembered? and is there any worse fate than to become a statistic or nothing at all?


Wow, you really read all that? Danggg. Props! =]

Well, I see you've just had the imponderable joy of stumbling onto the blog of an 18-year-old girl who can't really describe herself in 500 words or less, such as in little text boxes like these. She didn't intend her blog to really become so much like her online diary (she was hoping it would have an interesting, helpful purpose to serve the world and all) but blogging is just kind of fun. This girl's a bit of an environmentalist and a full-tilt vegetarian, a bit of an artist who can't draw, a bit of a writer who can't find time to read, and a completely hopeless romantic. She enjoys white chocolate, coloring, wading in creeks, music, Doctor Who, and speaking in third-person when it's unnecessary like this.

Now go read the rest of the blog and meet her, if you like of course. :)
