|A topic I had hinted at, but did not expand on.|
|I would like to explain to you all why I am the way I am. I haven't posted anything in TFS for some time because I was busy working out how to live my life in a fair way and how to treat others better.|
Truth be told, I've rarely been a good thinker.
|I have just completed my first month of classes at EOI (Escuela Oficial de Idiomas)Gerona. At first, I wasn't sure how well I'd do. It's 10-12 Monday to Thursday. We have homework given to us nearly every day and it's been tough, but thanks to my Spanish studies at home and the input of my mother, I've done well so far. I have not missed a single class since the term began on Feb 3rd. It's been a blast so far.|
|This is a day I will always remember for the events I incidentally set into motion. I was playing football with three of my friends. At one point two of them, (Tom and Sam) stopped playing the game and started tussling with each other. Suddenly possessed by a subliminal wish to do something dastardly, I picked up the football, walked over to them, raised the football in both my hands and I kicked it at Tom. The ball sailed through the air and smacked him right in the side of the face. I was overwhelmed at that point. I turned away, in shock and put my hand over my mouth. I was really amazed by what I had done and didn't know how to take it. |
The next thing I heard was a dull thud on the ground. I turned around and I saw Rod, one of my other mates on his back on the field. Tom was standing over him with an angry look on his face and then he delivered a hard kick to his leg.
I asked Tom about this later and he said that Rod laughed after I kicked the ball in his face. I still remember this so many years later.
|I have lived in this world for three decades. I believe each decade we learn something new. In this one I have learned how to leave behind the Darwinian person I once was. Ten years ago I wouldn't have even dreamed of doing such a thing, but now, I can think of nothing better. I emerge from my 30th shell an honest man. From this point on I will live by my beliefs and let no one convince them to change them for anything.|
