We’re young. We don’t need someone to love, hold and kiss. We won’t always be able to relax and be kids, but we’ll always be able to love. So I’m gonna get out there and liven up this world, leave my mark, make a difference, because in five years we will want to rewind, but we can’t. So stop…
Why can’t you have both worlds though? Someone to live life with and wreck shit. 10x the fun and pleasure bro.
You can have both worlds, but you have to realize that it doesn’t work out that way in most cases, at least when we’re still in our high school and early college years. It’s a blessing when you can truly find someone to live life with at such a young age, but it’s important to realize and accept that life rarely ever goes that way.
That independence from “love” is often a hallmark of strength, courage, and a strong sense of security. It suggests control of one’s own life, in the sense that thoughts aren’t ruled by emotions. It frees the mind, allowing the not-so-“fortunate” to live their lives to the fullest degree, and paves the way for personal growth through experience.
After some thinking, I’ve come to realize that this song strikes a deeply personal chord with some of my past. It was before the “Nico” many of you guys know now existed, in the days where I didn’t really know who I was, or what I stood for.
Those were miserable days man, but they made me into who I am today.
I’ll blog about it some other time, if I’m up to it.
There’s two things when it comes to a man crying. First, a BOY cries to keep a girl there when he fucked up. When he knows he did wrong, knowing she’s going to have that certain sympathy to stay with him. That’s a BOY. When a MAN cries for a girl it’s because he didn’t do so wrong, but because he shows how real those tears to show that she may be one of the greatest things to happen to his life. A Player cries as a boy. A Man cries as a Real Gentlemen.
Just keepin’ it real though, emphasizing the display of affection in a relationship only leads to clinginess and emotional dependence. Sure, it feels amazing at first, but shit will hit the can after 4-5 months, in most cases anyway.
I feel like true “love,” to most of us, is a state of perpetual and never-ending mutual affection in a relationship. “The one” isn’t a God-sent girl or boy, but instead someone you could share your innermost affectionate desires with, nothing more.
So I’ve tried to initiate a conversation over the matter of time on a couple occasions, but I wasn’t really satisfied with the outcome. Time doesn’t exist, but it’s more of a dumbed down way to look at progression; you can’t regress reality, but as “time” passes progression occurs. As it is with…
It’s all perception, really. Time can exist, but then again it can also not exist, depending on what you define as the state of being in existence.
A meaning to our existence? Again, it ties back to perception—what we define as “meaningful” or “having meaning,” or, if you go deeper, whether or not there needs to be some justification to our state of existence in the first place.
And lastly, can you create something from nothing? Again, define “nothing.” If “nothing” is defined as the absence of everything and anything that comprises or occupies this very universe, then we will never know. Perhaps something [that does not “exist” in our universe] created our state of existence? Is it a God? A benevolent God? Some autonomous process? Again, we will never know—it’s impossible to prove [or disprove] with science.
Ever liked someone you thought you didn’t stand a chance with?
Yupp! It actually happened several times during high school—back when I didn’t have much confidence in my abilities with the ladies. I was too timid, shy, and insecure, and these girls were (in my eyes) beautiful, confident, and outgoing. Hell, I was a hopeless romantic back then. I won’t name names though.
Nowadays I’m much more cautious and selective rather than insecure and un-confident, however I’m willing to just go with the flow should things happen with a girl in the future.
Human perceptions are the foundations to both faith and science.
Well, except when you’re describing massive objects (through the theory of relativity) and extremely small and microscopic systems (through quantum theory), at which point mathematics becomes absolute. But then again, our perceptions of said concepts of mathematics may not be absolute.
Haha, hopefully I’ll pick it up as soon as you did. At the moment my two year break makes it more intimidating, even…
Don’t worry, you hardly ever use anything past basic algebra when performing most calculations. If anything, I’d say practice multiplying 3x3 matrices together—it’ll help you sort of “see” how everything works as you learn more concepts. Get that technique down, and also experiment with what happens when you multiply two of the same type together, for example multiplying two lower-triangular matrices, and just pick up on those types of patterns.
Most of the class revolves around the properties of matrices: basically performing regular algebra, but with blocks of numbers rather than multiple lines of equations or sets of vectors. The matrices themselves can represent whatever you want them to be—a system of equations, a set of vectors, even random values—it all depends on whatever you happen to be working with, but usually it’s vectors when you’re dealing with linear algebra.
If anything, don’t freak out. The learning curve is high, but it gets really easy once you start getting it.
