Sometimes I want my life to speed up. It’s that anxiety of anticipating the future.
Last night, for example, I couldn’t chill and watch a film because I thought I was wasting my time.
How this could be possible?
Basically, the reason is that I push myself too hard. Society pushes us a lot too. Think about it.
We have to have an opinion about everything: politics, economy, abortion, racism, feminism, war, terrorism, Brexit, celebrities, nuclear weapons, global warming, homophobia…
It seems that we should know what to say and please people at the same time: In Brazil, if your friends are left wing, talk about Dilma, if they are right, talk about the new government (not exactly about Michel Temer).
You have to know about everything at any minute. If till now you don’t know what a hashtag is, you will never find a job in your L-I-F-E.
You have to know everything in acronyms as well. DNA and BMW are things from the past. You need to understand what it means: SEO, DOP, VP, CEO, PPC, PPV, MD, MBA, HBO, BFI, G-8, RSL, VR, T2…
You have to follow trends: you have to be slim, proactive, funny, well-dressed, have to have the newest iPhone. Ahh! You just cut the lactose, has to be vegan, or use biodegradable products. You have to explore the world and be successful. You have to go the trendiest Japanese Restaurant New York, otherwise you haven’t been to New York, “My dear”.
With all of this in mind, can you answer to a simple question:
Who are you?
I asked myself last night and realized I was going mad because I don’t know E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
And…You know what? I don’t care anymore. I live Carpe Diem. 🙂
So to make a statement:
I have no opinion about Zika virus.
I don’t know where Azerbaijan is on the world map.
I’m not going to stop eating meat.
I don’t like electronic music.
I didn’t vote for Brexit.
I have an old Samsung phone.
