I’ve noticed there’s something big happening amongst the youth today and that is the one thing we’ve been put on this earth to do – live. It pretty hard to sum up the words to describe this exhilarating feeling of ‘living’ without sounding cliché. Many members use related words it in their tittles, even I do. These words include: youth, young, live, reckless, wild, somewhere, explore, discover, journey e.t.c, it’s these words that make people feel as if they are experiencing life to the fullest. It’s all around us now, music videos by Calvin Harris and David Guetta show this a lot too,

It’s not a trend though. It’s something only few grasp. I mean how many people can say they’ve packed their bags and just left? How many can say they have fun during that trip? How many people can say they’ve changed since that trip? How many people can feel like they have lived today because they died yesterday? Maybe I’m being confusing; I surely hope I’m not some crazy seventeen (or eighteen – 7th of August, remember bitches) year old.

Maybe it’s this trip I’ve taken to my grandparents that has made feel alive more than ever – here, I feel like there’ no limits and there’s something endless in the air. I wanted to show this so I’ve done a picture that best describes my feeling – the picture on your right side. The one when I have my hand raised to the air. Have you ever done that? It’s probably my crazy-hippie-spiritual side that makes me believe like I’m touching the edge of a revolution.

Maybe that’s the correct word to describe this untitled feeling of living – revolution. After all, it was The Beatles that sung, ‘You say you want a revolution, well you know, we all wanna change the world.’

I think the future generation (us) are changing the world as we speak. People my age and above are concentrating on what is now and not then or ahead. Of course we can’t help to think of the future and past – the two biggest inspirations in life – but we don’t dwell on it, we live the now and FUCK NOW I’M STARTING TO SOUND CLICHÉ.

The title of this look is from a Bright Eyes song – Make a Plan to Love Me. It pretty much says it all on how I see the world right now, just play and not to sweat the negative – that’s why we have depression. So, guys, go and fucking enjoy life. You have it once.

Oh and follow me or add me on FaceBook, I adore talking to interesting people with a lot to say. Who knows, you could be my next muse.
