I write because I want to point out things that may be unconventional. We live in a world that is stagnant. We are surrounded by greed and popularity. Trends shape our behavior. Often times, I write way out of the blue about something that seems insignificant; however, writing is what allows me to share what I honestly feel even if it means going beyond reality.
In particular, writing is like an empty bowl that can be filled with anything I wish. Moods and thoughts can easily be altered. Imagine one time you make salad in a bowl and then a cake the next. The content and surrounding context is different but the bowl remains. It is constantly washed like our thoughts that are malleable. We learn new things and accordingly apply new perspectives. That is what makes humans exceptional. But, the power of humans is limited to our planet’s resources which is the point I want to make next.
As a recent environmental science graduate, there is not one day where I have not thought of our planet. Writing is what will help me send messages to the global community. I may not be one who is actively taking part in recycling, going door-to-door and asking to sign a petition, or introducing new technology; but, at least I am given a hand and pencil to write. Writing is what helps me say things I would never be able to act out or physically carry out. It is a medium by which I can say something and either be criticized or praised.
