I'm sure there is nothing like a God, but I'm also equally sure it has a stupendous sense of humor.
The shiny thing the camera is pointed at is, inevitably, quite boring. What lies in the periphery and beyond is less so, but will always disappoint with its insistence on the importance of the center of the frame. It is this tension that gives rise to all meaning, between the emptiness of the subject and the subjugation of any context to that emptiness.
If the above sounds like utter gobbledygook to you, or if you're the type who dismisses philosophy because it "asks questions it can't answer" you should probably just stop reading now.
None of this means you need to read philosophy, or even have heard of any of the philosophers I adore. What it does mean is that you need to have not found a little ledge and convinced yourself it's the world far and wide. Even better if you're alright with simply falling down the rabbit hole forever.
If I was smart I'd delete all of the gobbledygook above the previous paragraph and start there, but even to be friends you need to understand how I see the world.
You don't need to have all the right answers for those bad questions in job interviews; knowing who you are is not about having a career, a car, or knowing whether you want a white picket fence. Knowing who you are is the courage to leave any given self behind. The cost and glory of choice is the infinite possibilities both in front and behind you. Both the past and the future are ideas you can stake down, stretch out and frame, hanging there for you to show all your friends, or you can watch them be swept away in the wind and rain and snow, lose everything, and start over with no idea which direction to even face.
