I could not sleep.
Sometimes I hate the idea of spending time sleeping, although I do understand sleeps' importance in functioning. My 5 steps to become immortal was a very real list that I plan to follow for the rest of my life. Often times I ask myself why we are all faced with such mundane problems and tasks like paying taxes, cell phone texting, driving to work, buying & paying video games, watching sports. These are all things I do (minus the texting because I do not own a cell phone). If I really search myself in each passing moment I feel more and more compelled to search out knowledge, create art and give my time to the things I care about.
I just happen to be one of those people that are never satisfied. I can never create too many drawings, read too many books, learn enough about renewable energy. I want to build my own solar panels. I want to buy my own robots. I want to quit eating and sleeping. I want to write books and learn different languages. I want to travel. I want to meet Aubrey De Grey and grow a beard just like him. It is frustrating to want to do all this, knowing there just is not enough time, especially when each "I want..." listed above comes with a laundry list of things I want to go along with the original "I want". I really enjoy living.... but I can't help but crave immortality.
I want....and therefore I struggle.
As evidenced in the picture below.
