I’m 16 years of age and I’m from India. I’m currently a High School student in my final year of school (thankfully ;D). I like the sciences but certain arts also attract me.
I have developed rather strong likes and dislikes in human terms, which may not always be a good thing, I know, so I’m trying to reduce the strength of these. As it is, however, here they are.
Ascetically Beautiful things
Freedom in thought and expression
Deliberately Insulting Humour
Imposition of religion/ideologies
I think everyone should try and keep a positive attitude. It takes a single tree to make thousands of matches and yet, a single match can destroy a hundred thousand trees. Negativity is very easy to create but incredibly hard to control.
I have limited tangible needs and they fit right into my backpack. Emotional needs are far harder to satisfy. One can buy the best weapon systems in the world but one cannot buy the sense of security a child feels with it’s mother or father.
I’m a teenager, meaning that I do go through a horrible cycle of hormonal swings. However, I believe that I’m different from most people my age. Yes, I know everyone says that but if you talk to me, you’ll know.
Of course, it’s just a belief that may well be wrong. However, it is there.
After much soul searching, I have found that I do not believe in God. Perhaps it is my weakness but I simply don’t have the kind of faith it takes to believe in God. If you do, that’s perfectly fine by me. I’ll never mock you for your beliefs as long as you don’t mock mine. I also do not follow any religion as I find it at odds with my views on how life should be lived.
I often take a philosophical view of life. It is my belief that there is no such thing as destiny, or even if there is, we can never know it. Therefore, we must continue to live our lives basing our actions on our own intelligence and experience, rather than some dubious destiny.
Despite appearances, I’m a materialistic capitalist to the core. Although I believe there are some things money can’t buy, I also believe MasterCard when they say that they’re there for everything else. Money definitely increases your chances of being happier as half your mundane worries are taken care of and you can devote yourself to living the life you want to. Economic freedom is extremely important.
I’ll end this horribly long introduction with my favourite lines from my favourite song in the German language. It’s absolute poetic brilliance, although it probably has no meaning to those who don’t know me personally.
“Wenn Himmel und Hölle sich streiten
sind wir beide auf einem andern Stern;
Wenn traume Am leben zerbrechen
und sich Rächen- sind wir Meilenweit entfernt
