I am not a good train conductor

I've been thinking a lot lately, for my animation final and just for my life in general. And I realized when I think, I don't get far. I described it to a friend the other day like this:

Imagine you're walking along and everything around you is how it should be. There are buildings and people and trees and noises. Nothing out of the ordinary. But as you continue walking, everything starts to fade until your surroundings are completely white. No trees, no people, no sounds, not even walls. You're not even in a room. Just a totally empty space. However, you don't realize this until you've been walking in total emptiness for a while.

When I think about things, it starts off normal. Until at some point I realize I haven't been thinking about anything for a really long time. My train of thought just drops off for some reason.

I really don't understand why this happens and I've never really noticed it, or if I have, I've never been able to describe it.

I guess you could say I've been thinking about thinking and thinking about thinking about thinking a lot. And I've decided that thinking is hard, just plain hard.

Welcome to My New Blog

On No Status Quo

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog! As this is one of my first posts here I'd like to introduce myself and explain why I've called this blog No Status Quo.

My name is Emil and I'm a 21-year old student from Latvia. I've spent the last three years of my life studying in the United States and the Netherlands. I'm studying economics, psychology and mathematics. A strange combination, I know. I'm currently in my last semester, and I'm really looking forward to graduation.

Why? Well, I have some great plans after finishing college. But first let me start by explaining what I don't want to be doing after I graduate.

I no longer want to study at a university because all the world's knowledge is freely available on the Internet. If the world's greatest universities offer their lectures for free, why would I waste my time and money studying at an average institution? Sure, I might not get any credentials for what I learn online, but I want to live a life in which I'm rewarded for knowledge and hard work, not formal credentials.
