Muddasheep's Daydream Part 11

When was the last time you felt absolutely confident? It happened to me two weeks ago when I was standing on the train station in Wels on my way home (the same train station that inspired me to create Patience, by the way). I was just standing there, saw little grass spots between the tracks in front of me, a slight breeze stroke my skin, it was warm, it was quiet. I felt that this moment could last forever. I closed my eyes and tried to live the moment to full extend. I smiled a little. I felt that I wanted to go away. Anywhere. Away from the stressful world I am a part of. Just step into a train and let myself carry away. Visit all of Europe. Step into a plane, visit the world.

I plan to go to Japan one day. The only thing that's keeping me from doing that right now is money. It's either visiting Japan for one week, or buying two high class laptops. I want to visit Iceland, Ireland, Sweden, Scotland. I want to be there, standing on my two feet, listening to the surroundings, close my eyes and feel confident. I need more distraction of the fact that we're part of a stressful world. I hate stress, I see frustrated people everywhere. Embittered faces, sadness carved deep below their eyes. They probably haven't felt confidence in many years.

I can't wait to see how The Secret World turns out. An MMORPG set in our current real life world sounds rather promising.
