That question everyone asks whether it be in an interview, when you first meet people or on social networking websites;
"Tell me about yourself".
This is what I really want to respond with, my kind of, moral in life.

About Yourself.

Everybody wants some entity in life. Something to fill that supermassive internal void. Whether it be a career, love, to travel the world, a family, death, good fortune, knowledge or perhaps popularity. The problem prevails when you want all of those things. A tiny fragment of each. What do you do then? Just let it slip by? Let life be as a tumbleweed in the desert - a diaspore, collecting more and more dreams as it squalls around. It is then when you come to realise you are too big for the world. The wars, the famine and the suffering are smaller than you; just a fleck on the exterior. And that allotment, your heart, is ever prominent and you need to stop waiting around for things to eventuate, you need to stop being frightened of what MIGHT eventuate. The authority is in your hands and only your hands, to make things transpire. Because if you wait too long for the perfect moment, it'll pass you by. People are afraid of death, but when we've lived our lives we shouldn't be afraid. Plainly because there will be no regret that you 'didn't do'. Whatever you are plastering over the crevasse with, go and make it happen. Don't just stand there. Fucking go, do it now. For life is time and time is all there is, and that is the problem I am facing. And your lucky numbers are 9, 17, 34, 21 and 40.
