One of the existentialists once said, "simplicity, simplicity, simplicity," as a solution to life. I'm too lazy to look up which one right now, so lets just say it was 'Emer-reu.' Is being simple, though, a good thing? A bad thing? There's someone in my life that's been recently pointing out I have nothing to talk about. Another person, haha my mom, said I am boring. It's just that I'm happy doing nothing. That sounds kind of terrible. I'm asking all of you guys if that's a bad thing? I can spend a whole day just dancing around naked. Watching TV. Wasting time. Eating again and again. Maybe being simple, like any and every other thing, in excess, is a bad thing. But in such a complex world, to revert to being simple at the end of the day, maybe... I don't know. I'm just confused about it. What else can I say in this post? That I talk about the same things over and over again... because in my simple brain, nothing else really is going on. That I think my relationships, or rather my love relationships, are one of the most important things to me. That's a lie. They're the most important things to me. That I'm simple and selfishly simple. That I think about myself a lot. That I have never done anything for the greater good of anybody else. That I know that's what I need to do. But where do I look? I started looking at the HelpOrg today to find something to do. I want to do something. They have this card game. I'm trying it for 52 days. Lets see what happens. Maybe I'll be a lot of things after. And even less simple.
