Stolen

I have this compulsive drive to express my state of mind but unfortunately I have no clue how to do it.


So what I do always is to steal----

1)Steal from nature in the form of photos which reflects my mindset by providing the the image of the place i have been to and what i have been doing there.


2)Else i steal others words and thoughts but i only steal when i can relate to it totally .

Not original but someone or something can express what I am not able to do.So I use it.

This is something which came to me at the same instance when i was thinking about the exact same thing but put in a much better way which I will never be able to do.



Being a twenty-something



It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.



You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.



You look at wat ur studyin or ur job... and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.



Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure.



You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.



You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone! but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you're doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself... and while winning the race would be great, right now you are scared just to be a contender!



What you may not realize is that every one reading this relates to it. We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out. Send this to your twenty-something friends... maybe it will help someone feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion...



Its called "Quarter-life Crisis." nothing is constant......except change. wats life without a few risks? keep playing the game !

Vathsan(Is that what you want to be called?),

WOW, reading all those quotes-WOW! #5 really describes me. Definately worth remembering these. Thanks for posting this.

I like your quotes-whether they're yours or not. Many people can say things way better than me & so I think it's great that you can use those quotes you connect with. Nothing wrong with that.

Looks like you've had some awesome adventures. Beautiful photo of the "kids in malana" from October 8th & I just love the night lantern photo from October 11th. Very cool capture.
