Hey there! I’m Barry, and this is my blog. I live in Miami, and I love it down here. I work for a small Cafe in Hollywood. A lot of gamers come in there, so you get all sorts of conversation. But it always feels sort of one-sided to me. So I started this blog where I can just have my thoughts and have anyone listen to me if they want to. Sometimes it’s hard being able to connect with people, and while conversations tend to be about back and forth, this one is less of dialogue and more of a monolog.
Anyway, I like my job; I have a degree in Biology. Like an idiot, I thought that I would just be able to walk out of college and immediately be able to start working with cells. My friend Adam went on to work for a cell company immediately and it always kind of scarred me. I feel like I put in just as much work as he did, and somehow he ended up with the job. Granted he put in more lab hours than me and wrote his thesis on stem cells when I was writing mine on daughter t cells.
So while I like my job, I just feel like I’m not doing what I’m supposed to be doing you know? I feel like I should be out doing something else, something better. I want to cure cancer or fight AIDS, and here I am discussing whether or not Captain Marvel vs. Iron Man is in anyway a reasonable successor to the original Civil War. It isn’t, but that’s beside the point.
I just feel like we were all raised in this generation thinking we were going to do great things when I feel like there is nothing great to do. It’s hard to stay motivated to apply when all of the jobs keep getting scooped up by other people. It’s hard to feel like I’m contributing to my society when they clearly are more interested in in-fighting than exploring dangerous and exciting subjects.
I feel like we need to work harder and change the world around us. I think like the world that right now needs to be changed and I feel like the only way to do that is to get to people, and I can’t get to people unless I do something with my words. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to change the world with my silly blog, but maybe one of you readers will be able to understand where I’,m coming from and be able to relate or make the changes that I can’t.
This blog is my message to the world from my little island in my mind. If you feel the same way, if you feel like there need to be changed, give me an e-mail. Send me your message in a bottle nad maybe we can begin to make some waves. This ocean of a world that we live in is far too big to be spending it alone, and I think we can all use a helping hand now and then.
