"And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes; and slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us." People generally have deep stuff here, for example: "I write because it takes me to another place." and "My prose allows me to explore other worlds." and even obscure My Chemical Romance lyrics. I have nothing deep to say because I'm extremely shallow. I write because I can. I spent several years learning how to write in an educational facility somewhere in the Amazon, so I may as well make use of my ability to spell words correctly. My prose does not allow me to explore other worlds. I have only left Europe once and that was because I pretended I could play cricket. I'm also not a huge My Chemical Romance fan, if you were wondering. I grew up believing that I'd never truly be happy until the day I meet the one. This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie 'The Graduate'.
