Do you ever feel like you’re just floating? I mean, there are moments throughout every single day where I feel like I’m not actually ‘there’ or alive or participating in the same world/universe as everyone else. It’s odd, because I see other people and I can interact with them, but I feel as if my world and existence is separated from theirs. Almost like I’m just…floating.
And I think some people would take that comment to mean something pretentious; as if to say that I’m better than everyone else or above it. But it’s actually quite the contrary - I feel like the floating prevents me from participating in life and being more of an observer at times. I don’t know, maybe I’m crazy."
Sometimes my friends say the most random & insighful things.

“Go be that starving Artist you’re afraid to be. Open up that journal and get poetic finally. Volunteer. Suck it up and travel. You were not born here to work and pay taxes. You were put here to be part of a vast organism to explore and create. Stop putting it off. The world has much more to offer than what’s on 15 televisions at TGI Fridays. Take pictures. Scare people. Shake up the scene. Be the change you want to see in the world. You’ll thank yourself for it.”
