The redundancy of art

"Living in a purely functional world would lack meaning for us as human beings. We need to express ourselves through art and we need to surround ourselves with the expressions of others." - Lesli WalshPeople want to consume art, whether it be movies, paintings, photographs, games, music or other things. Instagram is full of art, free to look at, free to watch, free to listen to, free to share and for everyone that is a matter of course.

THE UNCERTAINTY OF FINDING YOUR OWN PATH AND FOLLOWING YOUR PASSIONS V

The Pursuit of Happiness In A Profit Driven Society When we tell people that we want to chase our dreams, we are told to stop being ridiculous and be more realistic. It has been drilled into our brains that the ultimate career goal is to be employed, move up in a big name company and make good money, while chasing dreams is something for people who don’t know anything about the real world.

THE UNCERTAINTY OF FINDING YOUR OWN PATH AND FOLLOWING YOUR PASSIONS IV

DEALING WITH FAILURE, STRESS AND FRUSTRATION

As you probably know, I studied in Tokyo for one year. I can say that it was quite an eventful year and it didn’t really go as expected. I am back in Germany now and I have a lot to say and to talk about, to the point where I don’t even know where to start. Last time I updated my blog, I wrote about the university’s ‘obsession’ with tests and exams. That didn’t change in the second semester.

SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT THE LAST SEMESTER AND HUMAN RELATIONSHIP

To be honest, I hesitated to upload this post. I had to leave it for a while, but in the end I decided to upload it, otherwise you wouldn't be able to read it right at this moment. So it turned out that I in fact did not post as much as I said I wanted to. However, now that the first semester is over, I feel like writing about my thoughts again, since I do not really talk about those in my videos.
