Steps Forward
Look around you, look at all the people in your life, all the friends and family, people you know and care for, the simple beauty of Humanity. We have a tendency to forget those around us, the simple things, the little things, yet these things make the greatest impact in our lives. Every second, us as a race gets a little bit smarter, a little bit faster, a little bit more efficient. Every second you as a person evolves a little bit more. As we move through life we grow, we develop, and we learn. The people around us help drive us forwards, and help us grow. The people around us make us, and shape us, and they are the ones we care for. We must step forwards into the future, with one another.
Within the past year I have lost people I once called friends, people I cared for and hoped for, and was always there for. At times I've wondered if it was something I did, or if it was something that they did. I switch between blaming them and blaming myself for the pain caused by losing someone I

Inspiration
At times I find it hard to find inspiration for situations and things, like for example a blog post. The worst part is when I get inspiration for something in a place where I can't do anything with it.
As I sit in my desk at school, slumped over in the middle of class, I'll randomly get inspiration and an idea. The funniest part is how it generally has nothing to do with what we're learning in class. It could be the middle of Math and we're learning about something special, and I suddenly get the inspiration to rant about love or space (Although I've ranted about Space enough). I'll forget to write it down and then I end up with nothing to talk about later in the night.
Sometimes it feels I stress myself into making blog posts, and push myself, which ends up rushing what I want to say and it doesn't come out quite exact. The issue lies when I don't rush or push myself, and I forget about my blog entirely for a week or so. It's quite the conundrum.
Speaking of Stress...

Among the Stars
Second post in a row about space, oh joy.
The thing about space, that I truly enjoy about space, is how things just.. Work. Everything has a purpose, everything flows and dances so well together, making this kind of.. Artwork out of itself. I could go on and on about space and hits honest beauty, and I will.
When I look to space, I think. It makes me think. Just looking at pictures of stars and dust clusters and planets.. It just.. It gives me this kind of motivation to want to know more about life as we know it. It makes me want to be a better person, learn about space and.. Hell, just learn about everything. Space in general just makes me want to be an all around better person.
I feel like I could just listen to some music and stare at the night sky for hours and hours, hell, forever.
Perhaps that's why I envision Heaven to lie among the stars. The Stars give me hope, hope for humanity, hope for the world. We are a part of a great cosmic mural, however small we are, we contribute. We

The Heavens Above Us
I might be a little biased.
I like space.
I like space a LOT.
The thing about space that really gets me is how.. different it is, yet familiar. Perhaps it's because I'm the son of an Aerospace engineer, constantly seeing pictures and stuff, but somehow I just look to the stars and.. Connect, if that makes sense.
Space intrigues me in such a way that I just want to figure it out, although I think no matter how much we think we know about space, there's always more.
Space to me is just.. beautiful. Think about it. Our universe, the space around us, it works in such a harmony, it flows in such a way that it's almost as if it's a universal dance. Do bad things happen in space? Of course! Black holes form, planets or stars collide with other stars. I don't know how to explain it, but there's something so mysteriously cool about the weightlessness, the emptiness, yet filling feeling of space.
Everything works so oddly well with each other, flows and moves like a dance. Even things of complet

Meaning
What I've found more and more often is that people claim there is no purpose, no meaning in life. That people say that they have no reason to live. Worst of all is when people claim others are useless, meaningless, awful.. Etc.
What I've discovered though is quite the opposite. To me.. Life has purpose, every being has meaning. There's no reason to believe otherwise. The simple truth, in my eyes, is all life has meaning. That's why I feel wars and killing are so.. So cruel.. So Savage. Life is more than that, SHOULD be more than that. We all live on this world, we all feel, think, live. Yet people treat others as though they're nothing.. Over what? Differing ideas?
Then there's the idea of purpose. Does life have purpose? Is there a reason for us to live? I like to think one of two things. Either we live to help others, and create the "Kingdom of God" here with us, making life as free and beautiful as possible, bringing joy and happiness to others.. Or.. The idea that we are designed t

Hope
It's funny. Sometimes, I just lose all faith in humanity, and I just feel completely lost and alone in this world. It's a strange, and odd sensation and feeling. To be honest, I feel alone in this world a majority of this time. People say they understand what I mean and what I say, but then they go and do the opposite, and it's.. Well, it's disappointing. Friends betray me, people I thought I could trust, I can't.
Yet.. Why do I still have faith? Why do I still believe people can be better than they are? Maybe it's the small fact I'm only 16, and my friends and I are young and immature. Maybe it's because we have a lot yet to learn as a race, and as human beings. I see the good in people, I look for it in fact. People are kind, and do kind things. I respect them deeply, and I love them. I love humanity, despite all it's mistakes, yet I can still love humanity as a whole. Still, there are those few people I just can't agree with, or get along with. These people who are simply monsters.

Hatred
One thing I just can't understand is.. Hate.
Why do people hate? Why do people have to hate one another? It's always over something so stupid.. Insignificant  my friends do it, everyone seems to do it. I can never drag myself to hate someone, to truly dislike someone. Life is so amazing, life is so great.. Yet.. People seem to find the ability to hate another human being, another person over generally small pathetic stuff.
On occasion you find that one person who just completely causes you to hate them, they do something truly awful, like kill someone, or something of the sort.. but.. Someone who said something bad about you? Just leave them alone, don't bother with them, but don't hate them. Hate? Hate is something we've dumbed down to the point where it's so oftenly used. "I hate when it rains" "I hate when people do ___", hate is something that represents complete and other loathing for something else, not able to stand and lacking any care for whatsoever, and if you hate anoth

Songs of our Lives
I was looking for inspiration, and a friend decided to suggest I talk about music. So I shall
Music is an interesting thing, when you really think about it. The way we hear it and sense it, it's become a part of our daily lives, and is the inspiration of many things ranging from Movies and Drawings, to just simple thought process. I personally like to listen to music to get me in certain moods, and can either make me feel better, or help me connect with life more. My personal favorite type of music is Orchestral, or well, Classical Music.
I don't know how to explain it, but classical music always seems to get me into a more thinking, and thoughtful state of mind, and helps to have me cool down, or cheer up. Something about Classical music just brings me to this neutral, yet happy state of being and mind. That doesn't mean I don't love other types of music though. In fact, most types of Rock music, and even some techno music are really nice, along with a lot of alternative artists. One

Long post today
I don't know about you guys, but for some reason I really care about other peoples opinion of me. It's strange, because on the inside I'm actually really timid, and shy, but when it comes to friends I really know I get kinda crazy, and weird, and sometimes that occasionally leaks out into meeting newer people, and it's just.. I don't know. I feel like a fool sometimes, I already stand out quite a bit being 6'6", but when I'm hopping around and making weird song things with my mouth I don't think people think very highly of me. It almost feels like an act I'm putting on, because on the inside I feel so vulnerable, and scared. It's such a strange feeling, because this persona I feel like I put on makes me forget about that scared and lonely feeling in my chest. Maybe it's the opposite way around, and I'm actually crazy and outgoing, and try to put on the air of timid and quiet, who knows. I do worry too much about what people think though, as if what I do is goi

Kindness
One thing that constantly gets on my nerves.. Is kindness. Not being kind, but those being the opposite of kind. Kindness is an important factor into many things, how people grow up and develop.. How others treat you.. Just, everything.
What people fail to realize is that it's not hard to be nice to other people. It's not hard to simply respect others views, or how others act, or even who other people are. I've known several people who hate on others simply because someone else doesn't like them.
Now don't get me wrong, I have my issues with other people too. I'll find certain people annoying, or other people won't treat me nicely so I won't exactly treat them the best back.. These things don't make it right though. If someone is cruel, or mean to you, just treat them nicely, be the better man. If someone is getting on your nerves, getting annoying, just tolerate it and spare yourself and them some grief. It really isn't hard, I have to do it all the time.
Just show a bit of kindness t

Intolerant of Intolerance
You may or may not heard that little paradox before, "intolerant of intolerance" but it is something I’ve come to feel. I absolutely hate intolerance, I loath intolerance, I want to murder intolerance with a kitchen spoon. It’s probably not as bad as that, but I don’t like Intolerance at all. When people are just so ignorant and stupid to think that their beliefs or their ideals are the only right way, and anyone different is stupid.. I just want to punch them in the face.
That seems a little hypocritical, yes? Well it is, but I don’t actually tell people “You’re wrong and I’m right.” without actually having evidence to support it. I’m religious, I’m a good little Methodist boy, but I don’t think that just because someone believes something different from me they are wrong or stupid. Everyone has a right to their own beliefs, no matter what they are.
Atheists like that really piss me off. “If you believe in god, yo

I fleck on the Pimple of the Universe.
Have you ever stopped and thought about how small we really are? The Earth is the size of an ant compared to the Sun, and our Sun isn’t even particularly large. Our Sun is actually an ant compared to the sizes of other stars. Now when you look at the size of us, as human beings, compared to the size of our own planet.. You can only imagine the size differences.
What bugs me is when others are so closed minded and stupid that they don’t even pay attention to the world, let alone the universe, around them.
Now the thing is, some people think: “Our Universe is so large and we are so small. Our actions are meaningless and we are meaningless.” and I just don’t think that’s true. Yes our Universe is big, and yes we are very small, but our actions make a bigger impact than you think. What each individual person does can make an impact on the way humanity moves through life, and therefor the Universe as a whole.
