About Me

If I had a clear enough idea of who I am to sum it up in 2000 characters, that would be a miracle. You buy your ticket and you take the ride, it's the same for being me and knowing me, only difference is I can't get off of this crazy trip I'm on. Or maybe I just don't want to.

"Being" is full of "unbearable lightness" because each of us has only one life to live: "Einmal ist Keinmal" ("once is never", i.e., "what happened once might as well have never happened at all"). Therefore, each life is ultimately insignificant; every decision ultimately does not matter. Since decisions do not matter, they are "light": they do not tie us down. But at the same time, the insignificance of our decisions - our lives, or being - is unbearable. Hence, "the unbearable lightness of being." (Milan Kundera)
