The Immortality of the Present
Misfortune touches every one of us, yet is success a compliment or a calamity?
We have sought immortality since the oldest times, but what is this immortality?
Where are the borders of the universe and the boundaries of the earth?
Must we ask whether the world is real as the streetlights shine at night and we remember the rush of a crowd, the kebabs and beer in summer, the sound of people yelling together as fans, the sheer joy of it, I wonder.
I would like to put aside my distant worries and focus on this moment. What does war bring? The brutality and its justifications are meaningless. The dinosaurs dominated once before, but the time of the earth's destruction remains unchanged. We cannot explore and predict the future, so we should cherish the present. The excitement and true meaning of rebirth.

I am a psychology major in my senior year at the university. I would like to continue to use my knowledge of psychology to write after graduation. I also plan to use my proficiency in new media and psychology to start my own business. I am interested in both jazz dance and rap music and write and arrange my own rap lyrics in Chinese. Thank you very much to Professor Luo for the guidance on this text and for giving me the opportunity to publish my work.
