Me Hello there *waves* I'm Aran. I mostly ramble. I can be slightly idiotic at times. I'm trying to teach myself Spanish these days(and failing miserably at it.) I love reading, animals, sports, music, movies, art... And I don't really like bios.
If you'd like to be my friend, please comment here. I'm always eager to meet new people! :)
I came not knowing from where, but I came. And I saw a pathway in front of me, so I walked. And I will remain walking, whether I want this or not. How did I come? How did I see my pathway? I do not know!
Am I new or am I old in this existence? Am I free and unrestrained, or do I walk in chains? Do I lead myself in my life, or am I being led? I wish I know, but… I do not know!
And my path, oh what is my path? Is it long or is it short? Am I ascending in it, or am I going down and sinking? Am I the one who is walking on the road, or is it the road that is moving? Or are we both standing, but it is the time that is running? I do not know!
Before I became a full human, do you see if I were nothing, impossible? Or do you see that I was something? Is there an answer to this puzzle, or will it remain eternal? I do not know ... and why do I not know?? I do not know!
