  • just peeked outside and saw a row of flats, one next to another, one on top of another, all of them filled with lights. colorful lights, moving lights, that everybody calls today television. once feared and admired, those screens are literally in every home. technology evolved a lot and instead of cupboard looking thing with a small screen, we now have half a wall 'affordable' tvs. everybody can afford plastic generated life transporting you by thousands of miles while your ass is still on the couch.

    what do i see peeking from my window? somebody is watching crime series, somebody is looking at interviews, somebody is really interested in that accident happened in a god forgiven city in the middle of nowhere. we are who we are, but we are very much formed on what we surround ourselves with. i bet u've heard many times that life is about choices we make, and it's definitely true - from choosing to watch that episode on tv down to which university to go to, which country to live in and what to do for a living, and whether to talk to that girl at the bar. we surround ourselves with the things that we like, that we think people like us like or just random crap. there's a lot of choice going on in this world, probably way too much choice. and it hits even harder, when u think that those choices are affecting us as much as we are affecting the choices.

    so go on watch the crime series or play Nintendo WiU, u should live ur life the way it makes u happy. only if that colorful thing or that amazing pair of jeans really does make u happy. does the trick for me.
