"Be the Change you wish to see in the world" -Gandhi "I will be a Hummingbird, I will do the best that I can." -Wangari Maathai "Where stereotypes begin with a grain of truth, cliches begin with a boulder" - George Watsky "And she's gonna learn, that this life will hit you - hard - in the face - wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach, but getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs, how much they like the taste of air." - Sarah Kay "Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded." -Suheir Hammad


*Play the music at the bottom*Think of something simple in your life. Isn't it nice. Nothing to worry about. It just does what it does without you having to waist time worrying about it. Just the occasional check up to say hi. Can't think of anything? Think of the sun. The earth. The rain. The earthly things around you. Not man made, or planted. But the things that were always there. They're nice right? Self sufficient. So why do we surround ourself with things/people who may better our lives for an extended amount of time, but later cause stress. Either fixing, mending, or replacing. This includes the expenses of course to do all of this. Either financially or emotionally. I was trying to figure out why I enjoyed learning so much about history at the beginning of the year, but found it a drag near the end of first semester. I uncovered the mystery. I've always been fascinated with early life. How in touch they were with nature. How simple they were, and also how much they accomplished.

Early Civilizations:

Modern Civilizations:

Now of course given we don't know EVERYTHING about hunter/gatherers, but they were a lot more in touch with what was around them. They were simple, without worrying about what other's thoughts. Things of today are too complicated. We get too emotional. We need to just let ourselves relax. Worry about what matters. Bills? no. Eating out? no. Cellphones? no. (yes I realize I just said that) Internet? no. We should worry about the things that matter. The simple things. These things matter, and always don't need to be worried about. As green as this sounds, how often do you worry about the sun? The trees? The ocean? Nope. They've always been there for you. Just providing what you need, without wanting anything in return. Unlike how we are today. Never need to be fixed, unless you give the trees and grass and plants some of that fertilizer crap. That stuff will enhance for awhile but what happens when you go up? You have to fall back down. The plants get sick. Let them live normally, they'll survive. I want you all to think. What do you need to worry about in your life? Those things aren't simple are they? Now think of what you don't need to worry about? Love those things. Because everything else nowadays is like a drug. Like technology. (every type of technology imaginable). It makes our lives better for awhile. We're on a "high" but eventually we have to come back down, and when we do, it hurts. We see evil things. Then we blame others. Like Satan. Yes he's bad. But he didn't place porn on your computer. He placed the advancement of computers. We don't need them. They were nice to be able to email grandma, but now you have a virus and Timmy can't get on cause he's only 4 and he doesn't need to know things just yet. But have you ever had to worry about sitting outside? Yes it might rain, but things dry up. Awe...is your new shirt ruined? Why did you buy such a nice shirt anyway? You don't need it. And that money could've been used elsewhere. I don't care if you think I'm a green freak...I don't care if you think I'm high(which I'm not). It's true what I'm saying. And you know it is. People of the beginning of time had it figured out. Why did we try to "make it better" and mess it up?
