What will we leave behind?

Recently I’ve been thinking more and more about what Humanity’s impact on this planet will do for future life on this planet. The other day when I was gazing out my balcony, I saw a bird land on an apartment building across the street, the bird flew down to the paved street and began to peck at a variety of plastic garbage that had been strewn in the street. Something hit me during that moment. I suddenly had this feeling of how unnatural our world has grown to be. This bird who is so much a part of nature, in seconds had interacted with nothing naturally occurring in nature. I then began to think about what Humanity will leave behind once we cease to exist on this planet. Instead of leaving behind just our bodies we will be leave behind synthetic plastics, all kinds of manufactured metals, treated woods, chemicals…

I’ve seen it all! 
Of course I’m joking when I type that, but for someone who was born just before the dawn of the digital age I feel like that. Sometimes I think I’ve seen more in my 25 yrs of life than my grandmother has seen in her 90yrs of life! Progression these days is well progressing at an alarmingly high rate and stuff that was one way today, could quite possibly be a completely different way tomorrow or five minutes from now! For heaven sakes Pluto used to be a planet when I was a kid people! The things that we all thought were fundamental  building blocks of life have turned out to be not so fundamental. Which brings me to today’s blog entry. I recently turned 25 and was feeling rather overwhelmed that I have reached this age(call it a quarter life crisis if you will) and what do I do when I feel overwhelmed? I Blog. In turn, I’ve decided to do a 15 part series on the unwisdom I’ve gained over the past 25 years. As always the stuff I present to you here are just my own thoughts and philosophies on life. Whether you get a laugh out of this or an epiphany I hope you enjoy it! And take a moment to think about the things you’ve have learned or unlearned in your lifetime.
The following is a list of the 15 parts, check back tomorrow for Part One!
 
1. Just because you grew apart doesn’t mean you can’t grow back together 
2. Listen to your parents 
3. Don’t listen to your parents 
4. You have standards for a reason
5. Read stuff
6. Grudges are for babies
7. Drama is an extra curricular activity not a way of life
8. It’s never too late to change your mind
9. You will never be consistent, deal with it
10. Sometimes you mix together two things that you hate and it turns into something you love 
11. Quality will always win over quantity 
12. Youthfulness is a state of mind
13. Don’t be afraid of doing the things that scare you 
14. Love comes in unlimited forms
15. You don’t know shit!

If you are not writing things that you yourself find hard to believe, then I think you are not taking the calling of writer seriously.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 6,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 11 years to get that many views.
