As I woke up this morning I was thinking to my self HOW THE HECK AM I GOING TO FINISH THIS PROJECT ON TIME!!!. While I was going crazy my mom gave me a brilliant idea she said “instead of doing your work here and getting to class late, why don’t just finish over their” that’s when it hit me, I can use city tech computer lab to finish my work and I wouldn’t be late for my classes, Thanks Mom.
As I was writing to my self from a point of few of 5 years into the future, my imagination kick in and all these thoughts on how I want my life to be and how it could actually be just came out of my head. I actually put my self in a position where my life isn’t where Its spouse to be and my goals where not achieve early or at all because I slacked in the present. This show that are mind can actually predict are own future in a way and we have the chance to actually make a few adjustment to it if you see your self doing something you don’t want to do or just making sure you make your life what you want it to be and the only way to do that is to plan for your future Right Now.
Thinking in writing:
Today has tough me that the mind is a strange but incredible thing to have with us every day that you wake up, knowing that the first thing that pops into your head is a thought. And the thought can be anything, about a dream you had, a bad night you remember, could just even be thinking about your future and by future I’m saying thinking what your going to do today, or in other words predicting the steps your going to make on your way to the train and at school, and also homework you had to do but for got and went crazy trying to find a way to complete it on time, these where just some thoughts that pop into my head this morning from 7am-11am, and i just thought of a name to call those thoughts “my morning thoughts”. And as the time passes by at my house once i got out class, from 2pm-7pm my “Afternoon thoughts” kick in, and since i was not scheduled to work today, i thought to my self let me hit up my friends to hang out/ Chill, and i as i walk toward my friends home, i was thinking to my self, I’m going to get ode stoned today and knowing that i just recently learned a little bit about ”Neuromyths” And finding out that drugs don’t make a hole in your brain, and realizing its chemical messes around with are brains. I also have learned and notice that drugs like pot can make you more relax and some very attentive to things that catches their interest and of course expands the minds way of thinking, which leads to my “Night time thoughts”. This is where my buzz kicks in and as i sit alone and see something that catches my interest, like the news, and these wars that can happen any minute with North korea, IS and other world problems and all of that just melts in my heads so it fuses with my mind and make me think, why is the world like this? when it can easily be change, Will their ever be change? How can we create/start change? the answer to it is so easy but yet so complicated for people to understand, because greed and ignorance exist in are world so while we still have that their will never be the answer which is peace. Also so when I’m trying to get some sleep probably from 12am-1am in my home i ask my self one deep question a day and yesterday question was “Why are we so focus on creating and starting wars, when we have a world getting smaller and smaller by the years and are human population is increasing? or who know it can even decrease, but at the end, if us as human matter and want to expand are mind and survive for new generation to come, i think to my self if we have been to the moon why aren’t we using it for are own advantage and create away to live in the moon, create some type of oxygen bases “i don’t know” and by the time are world is to crowded we have other homes in space, and step by step we can reach other planet, create live out their. Are mind is limitless and i am 100% that anything that sounds crazy or impossible, is possible. you just need a mind that wont stop imagining or creating random thoughts in your head, and makes you thing of something that can change the world one day. To be honest i think a lot about life and the situation I’m in and how can i change that, a pattern that i notice every time i think, its that i try to think in to the future to much and how it going to be or what i’m going to be doing and even what are we to expect when we die, question that just pop into my head randomly. i also notice i don’t think about my job as as much as i should its like i blank it out and just go to work and come back like i never left but know i went to work , something i should probably pay more attention to. and these are my Day Of Thoughts.
Every time I get home I think about my job and the days I work, somedays i work a few hours other days I work more. I also think to my self that I need more hours so I can get more money and buy my school supplies because the little hours I get isn’t enough because I have to pay rent.
Sometimes I sit at home and think to myself “what in the hell am I doing with my life”, sure I work and I got school but sometimes I feel like I need to do something greater in life something bigger, I think to my self I need to leave New York and live life but then I see my family and tell my self they need me.
She is the reason why I try my best to wake up and do what I got to do, a though that comes to my head everyday is seeing my niece face and smiling at me and it gives me hope so thanks to her my mind stays positive and think of all the opportunities life has to offer.
One of most thoughts that comes to my head especially when I get out of class and head home is food, and I think about what am I going to eat or make and today I thought of making brown rice with grill chicken for me and my family since my mom get out of work late I get to cook. So what am I going to cook is a thought that process threw my head everyday.
This is one of my main objective, and I need to stop slacking around and buy my books for all my classes as soon as possible, this is something that I really need to focus on and think about 100% and make sure I get on track with school.
This is also something I been meaning to focus on but work and school don’t let me. So I think to myself “damn I need to make a schedule for my health”. I always think about my health especially since I stop smoking I would really like to build up my strength.
Dear Luis de la Cruz
First of all congratulations on becoming a united state citizen on March, 06, 2015 you have come along way but you finally accomplished one of your goals, but what is good having a passport to travel the world if you still stuck in New York. To make it more clear to you, my name is Luis de la Cruz and I am you writing to you from the year 2020, 5 years has past and we graduated from city tech, but we still don’t live the life we wanted to live. I write to you to make you realize that the things we think about the least are what we should be focusing on the most to be successful as soon as you graduate. For once start going to sleep early so you can wake up well rested and don’t need to fall asleep in class. Also try to pay more mind to your classes, learned how to manage your money because we both know you can’t have money in your pockets, and last but not least always put your dreams ahead of everything.
Come on man by this time you should already know that one of the most important things you have to do during your college years is sleep. Sleep enough hours to help you keep active and understand the class lessons. Right now in the 2020, sleep is something I Barely get because I have to work more hours to get the money I want instead of working less hours for the same amount of money. Sleeping a good amount of hours is one of the task I want you to understand and accomplish. Remember the book John Medinas brain rules and the chapter about sleep, well of course you do you are still reading it right, right!, well anyways I want you to read the chapter all over again and really understand it, you know that lack of sleep can cause less use of the brain and you’ll end up sleeping in a class again. I am going to give you some steps on how to improve your sleeping schedule. First try to spend less time on unnecessary things and more time on the important ones, like homework but you’ll read about that later on during this letter. Also try to label what to do daily always focus on the important tasks first then, if you have time on the least important. Last but not least put an alarm not to wake you up but to tell you to go to sleep and of course one to wake you up. These guidelines are just some of the future secrets that I’m sharing with you so you, I mean us can have a better tomorrow.
You know something I realized about us we can never have money around because one of our major problem is handling money and we are extremely bad when comes to it. Even as I am writing to you I keep spending money and I definitely want you to change that. Money is a must have in your pocket, wallets or credit card it’s a must need in case of emergency and you know what type of emergency I’m talking about. Listen Luis I want you, no need you to start saving money go cancel your chase account because that bank company is not working out for you, it is also taking your money. Get an Apple back out they have better benefits than chase like helping with collage. Once you make an account get direct deposit from your job, every time you get paid save at least $50 in your bank account and keep on saving 50 every time your job pays you. That will help you get books you need for your classes and trust me I know you really need them. It will also benefit you on transportation to go to class on time which your good amount of sleep. Saving up money is also a task I want you to learn it can’t really help you in the future we’ll help us, And it will guarantee you a better understanding of your classes once you get the books. Listen Luis try to really follow my advice on saving up your money and I guarantee you it will help you achieve your goals.
I understand you’re not 100% prepare for your college at this point, come on man you can’t be given late work to your class is going to leave you with a whole stack of homework or other type of work that you’re just going to end up not doing, Just imagine having so much work that it won’t let you have a life. So my tip to you is always do your work on time make sure your teachers receive it because I know you want to pass all your classes right? And some ways for you to make sure that your work are completed on time are, as soon as you get the work make sure its your first priority, ignore your friends telling you or inviting you to hang out if you haven’t done any work, and last if you have important matters to attend make sure you set a schedule to do your work so you won’t lose track of what’s needed to be done.
Now let’s talk about your dreams your goals your success all of that that can be achieved if you just put your head into it. Look you have gone so far and thanks to your parents and are Ambition to move forward in life you have face difficult challenges and even though you don’t win them all they all lead you to be the person you are today and it will continue to lead you to become a Professional in whatever you set your mind to. You have always had high hope for your future And all you could do was dream about it but now you have the chance to reach for it and become what you always wanted to be, but it isn’t free yes is possible but only if you really are willing to make it possible. Because you have the determination all you need is the results. Look put your head high and your dreams first and doing so will lead you to achieve the three task I have written to you on this letter.
As I finish writing this letter to you I really want you to pay real close attention, Luis you have the ability to be anybody you want in this world but again you’re going to have to work for it on your own. I know the journey is difficult but complete these tasks I have giving you and you’ll see that all that hard work and dedication paid off And Will have the life we Knew wanted to have, I want you to even re-read this in five years you’ll see how far you have gone in life. Always keep it positive mind and a positive attitude, save enough money that can be helpful for school and again put your work ahead of everything try to complete it first. Hope you take my advice and create a better future for Then the one I’m living right now.
Luis A. Dela Cruz
