To whom it may concern,
Good morning, my name is David Kim and I’m writing to you this morning to express my feelings on what all this is about. I mean, life. We all go through it, we don’t know how we got here and we don’t know where we’re going. What are we here for? For the first twenty years or so, it seems to make sense, learn to walk, go to school, do homework, get good grades, pass the exams, go to university. Then what? The mundane program doesn’t end. Go to university, work, or go to trade school. Then what. Start working a job that most of us hate and if we’re lucky, we get a month off to go on a holiday, come back and wait a whole year to do something we like. Sure, we get the odd holidays and weekends, but it’s like, from the age of five, we have the whole life mapped out in the way of being reduced down to a worker bee.
Something doesn’t add up. The thing is, no one seems to question it. It’s like something’s gotten into our minds at some stage early on in life and we don’t know any other way of living. Some do escape the norm by having their business or other sources of income, but everyone more or less follow the same pattern. I’m not really sure what I’m trying to say here but there has to be another way than just dedicating a large portion of your days, weeks, months and years to tuning up to a job to take it from who ever is above you, get exhausted, come home, eat, watch TV, go back and repeat for forty years. I’m not saying we should all break out and go do whatever we want. I don’t know.
Anyway, I don’t have the answers but all I’m saying is there’s got to be more to this brief time on earth than waking up every morning to go to work all day, deal with people we don’t really know, hang out with people we don’t really like, eat foods that are not good for us, get stuck in traffic, scroll through the phone, sleep and do it all over again the next day.
Like I said, I don’t have the answers. I woke up this morning and had this little epiphany.
Anyway, I’ll talk about something more cheerful tomorrow.
