Things I Know

Here is what I know.

A man can put off his dreams indefinitely, but that doesn't mean he stops thinking about them.
It's damn near impossible to live without money.
The world is a place full of rules that I hate.
The most beautiful and important things are never the easy things.
There is an excess of hatred in the world.
There is an excess of hatred in me.
Hatred is damn near useless.
If you strive for something, people will mock you.
If you do not strive for something, people will mock you.
People like to mock others because everyone is different and people hate differences.
Mocking people for being different makes me feel better, but only if it's behind their back and they don't find out.
There are a lot of things that I don't like about myself.
Seemingly, most people are fundamentally the same.
Yes, even (and often, especially) the ones who seem fundamentally different.
Anyone who says they have no regrets is lying.
Probably to themselves.
Unless they're 5.
I wish I was 5 again.
Writing is one of the only things that makes me feel like I'm actually contributing to society.
I am terrified that I don't contribute anything to society.
Despite how we're taught to write, endings are often anticlimactic.
