      Not to sound pessimistic but shouldn’t you experience your existence a bit before deciding to pop out a mini-existence of your own? Isn’t your journey yours and not anybody else’s? Besides, what’s the hurry? Delaying isn’t equal to denial. Think about it.

      We rush because of the sometimes ridiculous timed goals we set for ourselves

      The problem with our society is those who know are worried too much about being wrong while those who don’t know crap are cocky about their ignorance. You can see this pattern unfold across the globe actually. A person who had spent 15 years studying a subject would sound nice, mellow and apprehensive whereas an idiot with access to free data would sound like he cracked the Poincare conjecture before Perelman did. For example, my brother is pursuing PhD and a PolSci buff but while talking to him on his favourite topics, he measures his words like a bespectacled researcher in an abandoned laboratory. Maybe such a pattern emerges when you go through too much information on your own. You read so many sources that you’ve acknowledged that truth isn’t that easily available. We might live in an impatient world but that doesn’t mean we are owed anything for our haste. Maybe brevity is indeed for fools whereas verbosity is for scholars.
