LOST is a student project that aims to show how 7 million people can connect to each other. It's also a game, and is trying to reach the highest number of players for any game, ever.

To play LOST you have to find an invitation. An invitation is an internet address. There are invitations on the internet, and in the real world. They could be anywhere – on web pages, inside book covers, written in chalk on a pavement or across a beach in the sand.

Curious? Let me invite you then. Be fast though, there are only 2 days left.

8 random things about me

In Too lazy to assign a category on June 22, 2007 at 4:18 pm

Quite a while ago, I got tagged by random butter, but never actually got to posting. Previously I answered 80 questions, or 31 questions, I posted 5 things, several random tidbits, some sort of introductory article, or 49 things about me (just a bunch of tests really). How hard can it be to write down just 8 more things? Apparently harder than it should be.

Perhaps it's because right now I feel exhausted, not having slept well recently (mmm … recently? it's a recurrent thing), caught in pre – during – post birthday depressing feelings, and fed up with … well, never mind. I wasn't tagged to whine for 8 paragraphs or anything.

Let's try:

  1. I once found someone dead. A young man, not even in his twenties. He lived in the apartment building I used to live.
  2. I tried to save someone from a cocaine addiction (not the above mentionded guy), but failed. I brought him to the hospital several times, I took care of him when he went to rehab, visiting him each and every day. I put up with his lies, and promises. Sometimes he seemed to be doing better, but always he fell back. At a certain point I decided I really couldn't help him. It hurt.
  3. I used to have a babysitter that died on the soccer field from a heart attack, at age thirtysomething, leaving behind a wife and two small children.
  4. I've often contemplated suicide, but never found the courage.
  5. I am often torn between several contradicting thoughts, options or possibilities.
  6. I wanted to play ice hockey but my mom didn't let me.
  7. I wish I could live in an alternate society with the people I love or think I love (both online and offline). Get some land, and construct some form of community from scratch. Slow food, high tech and with plenty of possibilities for all to explore.
  8. I am able to feel deeply for someone I've never met face to face (well, not yet anyway) and to me that's not a weird thing at all.
