"We live in a changing universe, and few things are changing faster than our conception of it."    - Timothy Ferris, "The Whole Shebang"


For the start of the new month (July), I decided to start reading newer books that don't usually interest me. I want to know how other people are interested. I started to read many mystery and romance novels.

After reading some mystery novels I came to a realization. Most of them are confusing, not well written or just plain boring. But I do have to give it up to some authors. They really know how to write a book. Suspense and drama everywhere. I think I'm starting to like mystery novels. Especially ones dealing with government conspiracy theories, or religious/secret societies. I mean, I'm not one for religion or anything like that, but thank you Dan Brown for making it interesting.

When reading the romance novels I find them to be sad. Not as in, getting me upset, but I pity all the men and women (mainly women) who read these types of books. Most of the women that do are alone and find comfort in a 'fictional' person's happiness and drama. I never understood why. I currently, am alone. I have no significant other of any kind, and I too feel that lonely feeling at times. But when I read these novels, these 'works of magnificent brilliance'? This is my reaction: W T F. This is pure stupidity.

That’s all I have to say about that subject. I've been obsessed with monkeys recently. Why? I've been reading up on 'the origin of species' by Charles Darwin, and I’m just amazed. I'll talk more about it later. Maybe.

I don't think anyone ever reads my blog, but that is okay. This is for me to make myself feel better, or to just put my thoughts down anyway. Well, in my recent posts, they were usually about random thoughts that I had floating around in my head. This post however, is a little different. 

Anywho, I have been thinking it over and I noticed that there is something seriously lacking from my life. I don’t think it is the excitement. Just for the fact that I care not much for it. I also do not think that it’s my lack of relationships either. I have many friends in who I socialize with on occasion. I’d rather be home though, either reading a book or manga, watching anime or movies, or working on the many websites that I have. Playing a ton of video games. Usually I am always busy. With one thing or the other.

A couple weeks ago a friend pointed out how I was not accomplishing anything here. I don't think he was trying to be rude or anything, just helping out. And he was right. I thought and thought of what I should do with my life now. I’m 23 years old and rather intelligent. I have an IQ of 145 and I do nothing with it.  I should make a new start somewhere. One to clear my head, two to explore a new place/country, and three, a fresh start. I have decided that this would be a good idea and a great opportunity for me. I could finally get everything in order. 

Of course, anyone who knows me knows which country I’m going to choose to live in. Hello Japan. I started saving up money, learning more of the japanese language and its culture, filling out my passport, and finding a sponsor for my visa.This is what I really want to do and I really think I can do this. I have friends and family that say they can help me through all this. I thank them for that.

I have more thinking to do obviously and more working to do, toward this goal. 

Bye for now.

Hello. This is my first blog/site thing. Well, I would not call this my 'first', but on this website? Yes. I've used my livejournalmyspace, and my facebook to blog about things and such, but nothing like this. Not to a site dedicated to only blogging of the random things in life. I find doing this pretty fun.

I want it to be memorable for me, so when I look back on it, I can think about my life back in the past. This blog will be a place for me to talk about the happy times in my life as well as crap times, but it is mainly about the randomness of the universe.

None of you know who I am I bet. I'm no one really. I just want to write and it doesn't matter if no one reads. But if people do read, then thanks for reading my randomness!

I don't know what else to post as my 'first' post on this site. Oh, why did I choose the title, "Twenty-Six Candles"? Well I was born on the 26th day of a certain month, and it happens to be my favorite number. Look, I answered your question.

Bye for now.
