10. Too bad I can't write.
Edited on Tue Sep-10-13 04:09 PM by Leopolds Ghost
I'm a visual person, I care more about inanimate objects (buildings) these days. I'd be able to form more coherent sentences on paper if I had more friends to talk to. Not that I don't care about people but it feels like the world's going to hell in a handbasket... politically / culturally / evironmentally, and it's hard to relate to people when you try your best to be social and people still don't really relate to you (me).

Part of the problem (I hate to say it, but my mom would say it) is we're the smart ones. ("We" including a lot of folks willing to post extended paragraphs on DU) The average person (wherever you go) thinks they have no problems, doesn't read (hence the popularity of twitter), and live an unexamined life and don't want to be obnoxed by eggheads.

That doesn't mean we don't have problems, we can see the problems in our own lives. Smart people are often depressed. Organized religion came about in an effort to understand the crushing dilemma of mortality and the soul and evil. Stuff most people don't care about or no longer believe in or want to wish away. I do believe in a higher power but sometimes I don't believe s/he wants me anymore. Then I remember what always used to comfort me, that none of us has more than a short time on this earth anyhoof and it's up to us to make the best of it and not expect to be luckier and more successful than everypony else.
