ok i just wrote a massive overview of myself but deleted it because i doubt anyone will give half a damn .. so i'll get to the point

recently my boxing instructor introduced me to an art i laughed at .. at first .. then it gripped me in a way i didn't expect .. this art is called calligraphy

i'm usually not into just writing but after a while with it i began noticing words .. letters ... the way that they're designed .. a method of communication turned to an art .. witnessing the words in a way i never felt before .. like no word goes to waste .. instead of just scanning through looking for the meaning i can appreciate every letter in the word and bring myself closer to the writer and his very emotions letter by letter instead of sentence by sentence ... word by word

i feel the emotion behind each letter and discover the true meaning behind the message ... i thought this shit would be pure boring at first but as i got into it it made me see life altogether differently ... each brick, each item in a household .. everything has a meaning ...

has anything inspired you in such a way that you altogether see life itself differently .. especially something so simple .. as simple as writing

Never experienced passion in that form before. I do feel uplifted when I do things I really enjoy, like drawing, poetry, helping people, or coming up with ideas that could be the next invention in the future. Nice that you have that sense of joy and exhilarating feeling towards Calligraphy.

Indeed I agree with your perspective. I've always been very analytical, which has led to me observing all too many exhaustive details. When I see a work of art for example, not the content of the art but what the artists thoughts were is what I see. Understanding peoples' minds seems so simple when they think at all and then create something. As a consequence, I tend manipulate my own words to fit into their mind in a way that I desire, generally to invoke them into some discoveries that will advance their thinking.

What you express of calligraphy I agree with as well. Before I had memorized any worthwhile expanse of kanji, I was understanding better what went into them for creating them, enabling deciphering the meaning of particular sequences of strokes without knowing the individual kanji. I can generally get within an abstract range of the idea of a particular kanji about half the time. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's a logical system, you can't consistently piece it together like you would latin root words, plus I'm sure different people and minds made kanji.

But this means no particular thing has made me see life differently. As stated, I've always been very analytical. I am prepared for my death, to reflect on my past achievements, yet such things have yet to occur. I value other humans' happiness, why they deserve it, thus I help people I never know. I call not the past history, but the present, using present history to change the future. Indeed I take odd perspectives on life and the many components that it is made of.

You should consider yourself lucky, you've found something most people search for their whole lives and some die without ever finding. Finding passion like that in something gives life meaning and a life without it would be bleak and meaningless.
For me that passion exists in creating, whether it is a story or constructing something out of wood and metal, creating things with my own hands, breathing life into a stack of blank pieces of paper or a seemingly worthless pile of junk, that is what gives me a sense of purpose. It's hard to explain but seeing something that I have created being enjoyed by others is an amazing feeling.

Hey I did that in my Ad Design class when i was a sophmore & I thought it was boring too
But when we had to draw ourselves with words describing ourselves I thought it was neat

The art of poetry. Cryptic messages that lie beneath the words is a thrill once you figure them out.

and working out; Boxing and Judo were one of the many things I like putting my body to use. I felt the senses of being alive when I exhausted myself. The pain I can bring upon myself, pain that came from success is an amazing feeling. It pushes me to strive for greater heights.

poetry...i never thought i'd like the craft. I'd never understood it before, and underestimated it. It was an alien thing, and never appealed to me, until I took a creative writing class and discovered a different kind of pleasure derived from this art.
Psychology, it's been three years since i took my only psych class, and until then i never stopped obsessing with the field. Im not even taking a course related to it. I tried to vary the books i read but i always end up with psych books in my shelf.
Rap writing. this is so funny. I discovered this new found talent when i jokingly challenged my friend to do a fliptop (filipino modern rapping duel) with me.

Your boxing instructor introduced you to calligraphy?I just laughed my ass off.
A warrior and an artist indeed...
Anyways,I suppose my passion would be music,mainly because I've been studying it for the past 3 years.Uncanny,I know.
Also,at the risk of sounding philosophical,such things rarely do come expected,don't they?
