My name is Aneliese and I am a freshman at Okemos High School near Lansing, MI. I enjoy writing and reading, especially that of poetry and fiction about existential topics and exploring the realms of impossibility. I wonder what our place on Earth is and how something so infinitesimally small as my life can change the lives of those around me. I wonder how some some people can be so oblivious to the oblivion and whether ignorance really is bliss. When will I be happy with myself when it seems that I bury myself in mistakes? What does the future hold for me, when future is always tentative and never set in stone? What is my true place among the others in this world? Will my thirst for knowledge and adventure ever cease? (Hopefully not.) How can I change the world and the future of those around me for the better? Is there a medium between spirituality and atheism other than agnosticism and how does this basis of belief change lives for the better or worse? Is there a higher power, as in fate, or is the world as random as we deem it to be? Why do humans and animals alike always have the instinct to turn to violence? What will the world look like centuries from now when all it seems is that we are running it into the ground? How do we know that we exist in this very present, or that all who have existed before us are complete fact? Although much of these questions can only be guessed at and can have no basis on truth, I hope to explore all of these and more in the coming year.
