So much more

There is so much more to this trip than this blog.

What you can read here are mere snippets from this chapter of my life.

In fact, I'll admit it: I don't write about everything.

People sometimes tell me things in confidence, and I obviously cannot break that trust by sharing with everyone else what was shared with me. As well, beyond mere words, there are activities I engage in, things I experience, and people I meet that I do not (or cannot and will not) disclose within these pages.

Sometimes, I just don't want to air out someone else's issues and problems. Common courtesy.

There are times when I feel I have bared too much of my own soul, but then I realize - you have merely seen but a glimpse of what I truly am.

There is so much more to me than this trip.

Now, I am not going to claim greater depth and poeticism in character - quite the opposite in fact.

I am a lot more random, impulsive, nonsensical whilst being no-nonsense kind of guy. I am also a lot more happy-go lucky than what I may have let on; a caution-to-the-wind, come-what-may, see-what-happens kind of guy. Sometimes vulgar, sometimes crass, and oft times unconventional, I take pleasure in giving the occasional middle finger to societal norms. I can overcomplicate and oversimplify matters, all at the sime time, merely by overanalyzing them.

A grand dreamer.
A 'hilaw na pilosopo' (half hearted philospher).
And an individual trying to define his own reality.

I am Randy's existential trip.

And if this trip is but a chapter in a book of my life's little journeys, then I have a long ways to go in finishing the volumes upon volumes that I want to achieve.
