Watch-The Time Pass

As we read a watch, we read the results of gears and motors, constantly turning without purpose.  We read the calculations of the watchmaker. We read humanity's observations that the sun rises and sets with relative consistency. The time of numbers and clocks is the meaningless creation of man. Dates, concerts, dances, sports games, and experiences are timeless. They are not bound by the limitations we created. These limitations that schedule our lives control only one thing: ourselves.

About Me

My photo
I am a sophomore in college, studying Biochemistry and math, but I am a pilgrim for knowledge. I seek neither greatness nor acknowledgment, but rather to experience and understand the complex world of ours. My desire for this experiential journey of mine is to gain knowledge and wisdom and, more importantly, to form strong bonds of friendship with the individuals around me. This journey began in December of 2008, when a friend of mine died at the age of 17. In his short life, he had changed lives in ways that I never have done. I was struck by the beauty of the life that had been lost, and I made a promise that day to reach out to people around me; to live a life not wasted. My eyes were opened. My life was changed. My journey had begun.
