Kindergarten is in session and the name-less protagonist is assigned to begin a private journal as a class project. After the school year is over, out of habit, the journal entries continue until years later when the main character begins to seriously question why they had continued to write long after the assignment had ended.
Was it ever a real decision or were they just mindlessly following what they were to do all these year? Why do we even have this need to follow and seek guidance from a higher authority anyway?
Who better to answer these questions than the person living the life in question. It's time to stop believing things out of habit and for the sake of belief itself and time to start seeking the uncomfortable but honest answers about the reality of life.
Throughout the next 5 years, the character encounters great personal difficulties reflected in a voice from their dreams as they begin to believe their entire life has been a fiction. They begin a personal journey to try and answer the biggest questions about birth, life, death, choice, relationships, responsibility, and ultimately the meaning of life and its relationship to both everyone and the nature of reality itself.

Join me as you do what you love and I live as I love and we are able to build from this present before us, something that is equally insignificant to all others as it is distinctly glorious and beautiful to us, the creators of a meaningful life.“
