What about about?
What about about? I really don’t know. Well, I’m the founder of Osint For All, I have a couple of YouTube channels that I started recently, I created this website, I watch movies/TV shows, I’m on social media, I follow some news, I do coding, I use GNU/Linux and rest you can click on other links and figure out.
But, seriously, what about having an about page? Initially I had removed my ABOUT page from this site and after some time I thought I would use this page to blog about MYSELF (subjective based on viewer’s perspective) sometimes.
Maybe for you, your JOB defines you or whatever the supreme work you do defines you, but for me, I can just try to define myself by the end of my life. If I wanted my job to define me, I had LinkedIn as a go to website, why would have I bothered to create this PERSONAL website? On the one hand, there’s a privacy issue, on the other hand I do N number of things (apart from job) and I have many things to do in the future, so it would be an injustice if I just conform myself to a job or a particular work.
It doesn’t mean that I don’t have a SPECIFIC goal in life or my life is unstable; of course I have a lot of goals in life, but haven’t you seen that motivational quote from social media, “Doing is better than saying”, “Work hard in silence, let the success make noise”; that’s noice.
I think many of you might relate with this modern day phenomenon. Today, we have to be a 10x coder, marketer, activist, woke, hacker, husband/wife/partner, father/mother (or choose not to have a child), liberal, rich, talented, visionary, innovator, conservative, for or against Elon Musk etc., I have seen many people writing all those things on Twitter, recently I also updated few things and only I know what I mean by all those things. I wish I would have been born in the 16th century or something, so that I would have had more headspace and more time to invent and write! Or I would have also ended up as a slave, king, potter, artist, poet, singer somewhere.
All this mess is because of the system that we have built, you can divide yourself politically, debating about if it’s good or bad or ugly. But the truth in the material world is, you have to be like that. Is this a new thing? Wasn’t there any competition or mental health issues in the 16th century? Of course, we had all the problems, there could have been no present without history and that’s the reality.
Finding oneself is a life long process, we as an intelligent species (as per as our research), will possibly create a lot of problems and will also strive to find solutions to those problems and on the positive side, we’ll also create some good things in the future. And probably I will also witness all those things for some time.
