Most people live their entire lives without ever experiencing a moment of the kind of happiness this dog is feeling.
Thinking back, I’ve been stupid in the past. We all have. Now, answering questions people ask, or perhaps trying to recall a certain memory correctly, I have to wonder about when I acquired the memory, and what my thoughts were back then -for they may be false. We believe we are the smartest in the present, after every day passes. But unless we have been careful 100% of our lives, our minds when built up, have flawed blocks and can never be perfectly correct in all situations.
Ahhh the imperfections that make us human are wonderful.
Aaaaaaand It’s official, I’m moving to Charlotte. Apartment is paid for, job looks set. I feel a furniture shopping spree coming up this Black Friday. I hope I can find some better friends down there.
I’ve always been big on symbolism and lately I’ve been thinking about tattoos. An old-fashioned compass has always been my first choice (don’t worry, this decision has been many years in the making) to keep myself focused and aimed towards my goals. The second is less personal, something symbolic of chaos theory’s Butterfly Effect, or snowball effect. I’m thinking about getting this one first actually as it’d be meta and self-fulfilling in a symbolic way. That one tattoo, starting a spree of new times, new actions in my life.
From all the butterfly effects I’ve already let loose, to the multitude more splintering forth, my first tattoo will be many origins.
Bill Gates, respond to my post already! I know you want to! It was intelligent, outreaching, critically thought out, and mirror’s your favorite author’s mindset Vaclav Smil. It’d make my day, my week, probably my month even!
I wonder if this is strange… I always think best when there’s ambient music in the background and something is around my ears muffling it out. It’s way better than silence somehow.
On another note, I know how vulnerable almost anyone is to hacker attacks and there’s never been much reason to hack a random individual’s computer before. Now, however, If you ever used bitcoins, hackers lately have been compromising exchange sites, getting ip’s of anyone potentially owning a bitcoin wallet on their computer, and directly hacking and uploading the wallet to themselves.
Just for those who don’t know, bitcoin’s origins are completely untraceable unless exchanged through an exchange site, so by hacking people directly it’s essentially a perfect crime. This is also the reason they are used for drugs/trafficking/illegal weapons etc. etc. unfortunately. It’s virtual gold.
Also of course upgrade your defenses a bit too. If you ever accessed an exchange site, they will most likely try to hack you anyway so take precautions people! You can learn more about most people by their internet history than a day’s length conversation nowadays.

Was in the underground lately. I can’t believe how many crazy adventures I’ve been on lately. And now I dismiss nearly anything I hear on the media as I would a five year old learning to imitate it’s mother at this point. It’s so sad how little is known of what’s just underneath the surface.
I’m back to the streets for now, but will always remember that experience and already longing to return.
