The Beginning

Its currently approx 4 weeks until the start of my exams. Similar to most of my piers, I am completely unprepared and have no motivation to revise at all. In other news my goal to exercise more over the Easter period has also failed, my love life still remains non existent and overall I just feel exhausted of life. However, I have finished the mountain of work I have been set over the holidays and tomorrow is Easter Sunday. I have been doing a lot of thinking lately due to the lack of sleep I have been getting, not so much about my future, but the life of others and the contrast between different upbringings and cultures. I have lived a good life (all be it quite short so far) away from conflict and violence, so I would not no the lasting effects of war and conflict myself individually, however I have seen how it effects others. For instance, if you think about the majority of lives within Europe and North America, we live in conditions where the worst thing that happens to us is having no WiFi, on the contrary, in places like Somalia and Uganda (In Africa) there are thousands, if not millions of people starving because all government funding is either going towards the countless conflicts between many rival tribes or countries or because the corrupt people within governments use the money for their personal gain. The way I see it, these wars are unnecessary as for instance during a war someone dies, the family and friends of this person seeks revenge, they kill the person responsible for the death, the person they kill, their family and friends seek revenge and the cycle continues until there is no-one left alive, similar to the saying “an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”. Oh well, just my thoughts. On Tuesday and Wednesday I have my P:E practical exam for football, which should be good. Anyway, if you made it this far into the post, then thanks for reading!
