So I have this twitter account.
And it is the first real step I’ve ever taken in doing what I feel I need to do with my life.
Ever since I was young, and I mean like 5 or 6, I’ve wanted to help people and make the world a better place. I always told my parents that it was my dream to make lots of money so I could rent out a giant football stadium and fill it to the brim with all sorts of performers and entertainers with all of the proceeds and donations going to various charities and others who are in need of a helping hand.
For future reference, if I ever make it that far, you’re all invited. But that’s a long term goal and my focus for this post lies in the hear and now.
So like I said, I made a twitter account. And you might be asking yourself, “Why does that matter? Are you just looking to gain followers?” And my answer to that is yes, of course I am, but that isn’t my point in telling you about it.
I’m a 19 year old kid with a lot of drive and just an adequate sense of direction. I come to you, the people of HE, because I see you as out of the box thinkers who understand just as well as I that life isn’t meant to be lived the way we are living it. Peoples lives were never meant to center around the value of their wallets or the esteem of their reputations, but sadly, many of us don’t look beyond these very worldly concepts and they have become interrelated with our sense of purpose.
And I want nothing more than for that to change.
So, like I said, I’m 19. I’m also a Freshman in College who can’t stand the US education system as it stands today and have 110% decided that I need at least a year to see what I can do without the worry of grades, tests and others determining what success means for me.
So what am I going to do? Well, like I said, I made a twitter account.. And that’s just my beginning.
You didn’t think that’s all I came here to talk about did you? Of course not.
Here’s the way I look at it: The internet has completely revolutionized the way we do things. No longer are we confined by our local position on the planet, the entire world and the minds that inhabit it are free to share and absorb ideas, concepts, and information from people coming from every walk of life. It has completely changed what we have the potential to do as a species.
So that’s why it’s where I wanted to start.
I figured that if I were to start a twitter account (which I have) and if it started to get attention (which it is) than Id have a clear and open avenue for everything else Id like to start and create to pave it with.
What might that be you ask?
My next goal is a website. I love HE and websites like it and I believe WHOLE HEARTEDLY that there needs to be more places like it out there in the internet. The more sources there are to draw from, the more likely it is that our collective conscience will change, and a better world will hopefully come faster.
I figure if I use the Twitter account as a sample, to gain publicity and a following, to give people a taste of what I’m all about, than the production of a website will be that much smoother and have that many more outlets to get known by. Once the websites taken care of and up and running, I plan to start making videos relaying important information retaining to the self, our world, and the Cosmos as a whole.
The idea is to spread as much awareness and understanding as I possibly can, and to collaborate with others who have the same goal and intent.
I have many more goals besides what Ive listed but this is what I’m generally attempting to focus on, at least for the time being. I come to the good people of HE asking what I can do to not only optimize and organize my plan in terms of efficiency, but in regards to simply making the world a better place.
TL;DR: I have a twitter account with a goal of growing it into a website and doing as much as I can to spread awareness about ourselves and our world, to brig attention to the wonder of the cosmos, and, above all, with the intent of helping others and making the world a better place. What advice can you give me in what I can to do utilize these ideas to the best of my abilities?
