A Blindfolded Step in a Direction.
So I got my Bachelor’s Degree of Arts in Communication Studies. Nooice. Now what? Where is my Yacht in the Cayman Islands with Instagram Models feeding me grapes. Wow, I feel pretentious. I guess we don’t need the grapes, just the models and the yacht.
Anyway, the reason I am writing this blog is to add substance to my website. I don’t know what I want from this, but I do know I should start somewhere. So here I am, blindfolded walking straight ahead with my first blog post. I don’t have anything to talk about in specificity but I do have thoughts that are streaming from my brain to my fingers to this page.
I could start with my name; Rey. Hi ya’ll! Hmm.. What else.. Oh, I am a huge technology nerd. In fact my most expensive addiction is camera gear. I got to have it at all times. Tony Northrup from YouTube calls it GAS or Gear Acquisition Syndrome. I remember listening to NPR or a book on Audible that spoke of happiness. The pursuit of happiness. As human beings we tend to remember the negative experiences more than the positive experiences and it’s attributed to our subconscious and survival.
We remember the negative experiences in our life as a preventive measure. It’s a gift and a burden. If we didn’t remember these negative experiences we would live in the present just like a dog does. We would always be happy, but we would be basic in our existence. It’s that need to fill the void that gave rise to our ingenuity. Our cave ancestors felt inadequate with only their hands and began using tools. The difference now is instead of a rock to survive we have a web. The world wide web.
