Five Things About Myself


Written by Eric

Right…I’m going to do the best I can to explain to you what my point of view is. I’m going to cover a bunch of topics briefly in a long laundry list. My goal here is to get you to understand where my views are coming from. I believe this is crucial in order for you, the reader, to understand the articles I write on this site. If you don’t see where I’m coming from, how can you relate or even feel like this is a conversation? Anyway, here are 5 things about myself.

Technology Pushes Us Further

Technology is pretty much the only reason why we humans have progressed to the state we are at today. Good riddance to those who don’t give technology enough credit in powering the things we do everyday. I mean, when was the last time you didn’t do something that involved a computer, PDA, cell phone, or let alone anything with a microchip in it? From very early on, I became immersed into the world of technology. Surfing the web at blazing speed using AOL (hah) soaking in all of the new things that have cropped up in the last 20 or so years. Now, whenever you go, your cell phone goes with you. Every second your cell phone has signal, someone knows where you are exactly wherever in the world. That part is a little scary, where your phone carrier or the government knows your every move, but it also saves lives when people get lost in the woods or something. At the same time, the Internet opened the world up to so many ideas that the Internet might metaphorically collapse now that ISPs are trying to cut it up to get a bigger piece of the revenue pie. For me, technology has enabled me to become that much more “worldy” right from my chair. In the same vein of “armchair generals,” anyone who has access to a computer and the Internet can become a “armchair student.” Of course, there’s the issues of companies and countries preventing their citizens on seeing certain websites (like China or Singapore).

Technology opened me eyes to the world, and gave me tools to communicate with others around the world. This blog right here is a great example of what Internet offers. In general, excluding those who are blocked by corporate firewalls or the “Golden Shield” firewall, technology helps distribute ideas and opinions. Now, because of technology I’m communicating with people from all over the world and making my mark with my web business ThinkPoint.

The Future of My Generation

I believe that my generation, the ages of around 15-25 now, will face some of the toughest challenges to humankind to date.

I believe that my generation, the ages of around 15-25 now, will face some of the toughest challenges to humankind to date. Not only will we have to do deal with issues like global warming, but also issues of political rights, human rights, and sovereignty. As it stands right now…my generation will have to blow out the civil wars in Africa, and at the same time finally please both sides in decade long conflicts like the Israeli-Palestinian one (if at all possible). When you think about it, the amount and the importance of the problems my generation will face is staggering! Think about it, this involves much more than just the United States…it’s the whole damn world. Global warming threatens to destroy our world in a relatively short amount of time if we keep using as much oil as we do. Many fear the rise of China, because it’s foreign and because it’s “Communist,” and not like other non-Western countries. Only with time can we see how the balance of power will shift in favor of the East, and how those countries (like India, China, etc) will deal with the greater reasonability to their people and the world. However, I honestly believe that their are enough smart people in my generation that we together can solve most of the world’s issues. I mean, if we don’t our lives and the lives of everyone on this planet are at stake (not to exaggerate).

College Will be Much Better than High School

I’m not going to lie here…high school really isn’t what they all say. It totally isn’t like what shows like Hanna Montana make it out to be. It’s generally a pretty rough place, easy to fall through the cracks, and very easy to get lost. Even in such a small school like the one I go to, I just don’t feel much at home anywhere. I believe college will be better because I’ll be studying things that I want to study, and I think it’ll be easier to define oneself. No longer am I confined to the narrow viewpoints of teenagers, college is the beginning of the real world for most people. Finally, it should be much easier to find a unique group that I’d fit into to and feel accepted in. Colleges are generally bigger, and have a much more variety of people…something my high school drastically lacks. Though honestly even with a diverse bunch of people, you need more than just to create a comfortable environment.

Though, the path to college is a tricky and painful one. Applying to colleges is a lot of effort, as I’m doing that right as we speak, and I sincerely hope I find what I’m looking for there. At the very least, just because most of the schools I’m applying to are somewhat specialized, I can find plenty of people who share the same interests as me. I believe college will be better environment for me to really open up and define myself.

Sarcasm is the Name of the Game

I’m pretty damn sarcastic when it comes to most things.

If you don’t know me all that well, you wouldn’t realize I have a peculiar methodology to making jokes and observations. I’m pretty damn sarcastic when it comes to most things, not because I’m all that cynical (or at least I like to think that)…but because I feel it helps bring home the point. Of course, that doesn’t really apply in all situations, but well, that’s how I am. Even in my writing, I tend to let sarcastic comments slide and slightly offbeat remarks. That’s quite natural, and I don’t intend to edit them out because that’s how I normally speak and write. As the slogan in this blog states…there’s not going be any toning down of anything. While I’m not going to start using the word “fuck” every other word…I won’t avoid it either. This also applies to topics, I intend to start many of a debate with Luca. That way we can really start some conversations going between him and I, and with you.

Changing the World…

You know, there’s something I’ve always wanted to do. And that is to change the world in some way. Not to get all cheesy on you, but my ultimate goal in my entire life to change the way you and I live our lives. I have no idea what I plan to do, but I know I have plans somewhere. I’ve only realized this recently, probably because this year has been really emotionally stressful, but I’ve come to see that this is my true and only long term goal. It really doesn’t matter to me what I do (besides taking over the world, etc), but I know I will always strive towards this throughout my life. I know a lot of people dream about this sorta thing, but deep down…I really really believe in this. Somehow, and someway I know I’ll do something, maybe something great or something recognized…but I really don’t know. I believe it ties into why I really believe in business, and why I love entrepreneurship. The concept and process of entrepreneurship enthralls me; creating my own company is another one of my long term goals…and I believe somehow ties into this goal. Please bear with me here, I don’t want to seem elitist or even crazy, but I believe this really affects me and how I see the world, myself, my classmates, Luca, and even you.
