The Importance of Being Important
It is exactly one o'clock in the morning. I have no idea why I
stayed up this late, I really didn't do much in the last hour. Well I
guess maybe I did.
I finished an IM conversation with a friend. I
made popcorn. I had a conversation on facebook. I worked with someone
else trying to figure out myspace. I braided my RA's hair. I made hot
chocolate. I had more conversations on facebook. and I got extremely

do my homework.
So I guess I did do a lot in the last hour. It
doesn't seem like much because most of it wasn't very important, but
when I list it out like that it looks like a lot.
It is no longer
exactly 1:00. It is now 1:06. Isn't it amazing how time flies? I mean
one minute it is 1:00 and the next minute it is 1:06. Did you see that
time just skipped 5 minutes. It is always amazing to me how much time I
spend doing nothing. Well maybe not nothing, but not things of extreme
importance either. I think that we as humans probably spend about half
our lives, or more, doing things that do not matter in the long run.
But then if you think about it, what does matter in the long run? Only

run. Or maybe I should think of a shorter long run, like 20 or 30 years
down the road. Then we could include doing homework and going to classes
because they will help us get good jobs for the future. And I suppose
that talking to your significant other could also be included in this,
because you could be strengthening your future marriage relationships.
So I guess the question is, What is important? For this, I cannot give
you an answer right now, because I am too tired. If I feel like it I may post about it later. Or I may not because after all it might not be
