Before I was watching Dazed and Confused, you know, the 90’s Cult stoner film? If you know it then Alright alright alright. Onwards with the post. In the film there is a scene near the end that shows a group of friends in the middle of a football field. They are talking about their lives and what their futures entail. Within this scene is a few memorable quotes. One being this Where I live is quite a deprived area. I am certainly not saying that I live a deprived life as that is not the case, in fact I believe it is quite the opposite. In a world full of pretentious biggots and me disliking the ideology behind being “wealthy” I would say I live a very fortunate life. Despise all this there always seems to be somthing missing. The urge to do somthing for me. I believe this is down to the concrete jungle on top of a great big hill that I live in. I do not feel like I belong here. I know various different people who have moved to many different places and are loving life. Whether they return back to their origins is another matter. I am talking about right now and the not so distant future. Back to the film. Do I want to be “stuck in this place” no. I certainly do not want to say “I did the best I could” because in this modern era the world is minuscule. Everywhere is accessible for everyone and I believe the “best I could” where I live is a mere knife in the ocean.
I do not know where I want to go or where I will end up, all I know is that I will go where I feel I belong in life.
But for now, I will reiterate another quote from that scene.
“You just gotta keep livin’ man. L-i-v-i-n”
