ESSAY CONTAINS EXPLICIT CONTENT
We never live in the same moments. Although, life may be repetitive with our daily rituals and the things we experience, they are never truly the same. But it’s this illusion that we create, thinking life is vapid, that pushes us to do the ‘unexpected’. Losing ourselves in the moments we tend to forget about the future and dip our toes in the past and experience life.
With boredom we ignite ourselves to experience agony and joy; we scar our selves and our lives, just so we can have a taste of reality. We grow older although not aware of where we are headed.
With only stories that were created to simply be told, we forget who we are. Knowing we exist is all we need to keep us moving along.
Existing is all we do, all we need.
I’m Nicholas Calhoun, I go by Conner though. I have lived in Raleigh NC all my life. There isn’t much to do here except pass time.
My inspirations come from where I live, and the people who surround me.
I use art to better understand who I am and the little things that people tend to not notice.
I’m still young and learning.
