Sometimes you have a narcissistic personality. Sometimes you want to be the highest in the room. But unbeknownst to you, something inside you dies, rotting slowly until you find yourself, alone and empty. This is a mistake that I committed for years until 2020. I changed my ways and started experiencing new things. And I have found a new kind of happiness, the happiness I never felt before.
When I started to meet new people and had to tell them my story, that I moved away from home without my parents and not doing an actual exchange, they would ask me why. Why would a 16 years old move to B.C. if it wasn’t for a parent who got a new job or something like that? In these cases, I would always hide some of the truth, I would tell them that I wanted to learn better English (which was true), that I was tired of my old school… things like that.
Before the world was ending, at the very beginnig of the Covid-19 Pandemic, life was busy. For me, I was just a high school senior sitting in social class being told of a virus that seemed so far away in a land I didn't know much about. Then it was everywhere. It is everywhere. The world has been pushed into isolation, into spare time, into patience.
Imagine how many times a day you let opportunities to use your voice pass you by. You justify silence as being polite, not wanting to make waves, you wonder, "is what you're about to say better than silence?" (quoting Scot Moldenhauer), afraid of what others might think, or you can feel that no one wants to hear it.
Hi, little Mohamed, it is me your older self, calling from the future, you see I am not 5 years old anymore, nor 14 years old. You look beautiful, I love your smile.
I woke up this morning, wondering what I should achieve in my life, what abilities I have that I might discover. I guess this is a start of something new. I am about to share to the whole world, that we can change things around for something good. Many people in my life always ask this question: what’s your skills, what are your desires to be in the future, what is the negative life that can turn it around to something good? Well I still trying to find out those questions to an answer. Everyone wonders what makes them happen of who they become and finding out their abilities. It took me some time to discover those answer to those three questions.
COVID-19 has taken over the world at such an astronomical rate, negatively altering lives across the world and rightly earning the term pandemic.

If I took the smartphone right out of your hand today and never gave it back to you until the day before you died, would you still be able to charge it or would it be so outdated that no one would know how to turn it on anymore? (Just kidding)
First off, the name is pronounced Nietzsche (as in “KNEE-CHA”); not “NITCH”, or “NEETCH”, or “KNEE-CHEE”. However, the pronunciation of this 19th Century German philosopher’s name doesn’t change the fact that he is one of the most referenced philosophers in pop culture. Such references range from the opening of the 1982 fantasy film Conan the Barbarian with his famous quote “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”, to the Black Sabbath 2013 song God is Dead?. For those who know nothing of the man, Frederich Nietzsche was a philosopher who wrote and lectured in the latter half of the 1800’s, donned a walrus mustache, and believed that everything in this life is meaningless. In order to give meaning to life, we must overpower everyone else and obtain our wants and desires. To do so, makes you an “übermensch” (or superman).
What if I told you that we are living in an artificial structure of time that is not supportive of human biology and that is why so many of us are anxious and sad?
