Blog 6 – Nothing but freedom


You are the scholar gypsy. Explain to your friends why you have decided to run away from conventional education.


My fellow scholars,

I am sure my departure has left some of you puzzled. You may be asking yourself, “Why would he leave everything behind to become no one?”. Well, it’s true, I am not anyone anymore, but at the same time, I am everyone. I can no longer handle being trapped inside the box of academic achievement as it has restrained me from doing anything else. Ask yourself, “Why are you doing the things you are doing? What can these things do for you in the future? What are you waiting for? What are you hoping for?”. Do you have an answer? Because I do. Day and night you read those books, but they never take you anywhere. Moreover, they chain you to the ground, keeping you safe but you can never take flight. I have flown, and I have fell, but I fly again right afterwards. I did not mind the pain and I knew the risk. I didn’t really mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted, and then losing it to know what true freedom is.

You may take offence to being called a gypsy, but I do not. In fact, I accept that compliment. I found my people, my fellow gypsies, out in the open. We have nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desire anymore, except to make our lives a work of art. Who are you? Are you in touch with all of your wildest dreams? Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them? I have. You will probably call me crazy. I am crazy. But I am free.

    1. HI Michael, I have discovered what went wrong. I had categorized all sections in the “Menu” button at the top right of my blog but I did not pay attention to how they appear at the “Categories” section at the bottom. I apologize for that.


  1. Hi Michael, there seems to be a mistake. I had already linked my 4th blog entry “Dual Entry” for American Literature in the Best Creative Blog link. This is the entry that I have submitted for 19th Century Literature last semester.
    Here is the link for the Best Creative Blog for American Literature:

    Sorry for any misunderstanding.
