I should probably explain what’s going on. I found myself lying on cold rock. I don’t know how long I was out, or how long I had been there. The rock is elevated above drab, grey stone. I’m still sitting on the rock. It’s quite flat here on the top, but if I fall or climb off, I don’t think I’ll be able to get back on.copyright protection43PENANAMFI6V9gbbU

So, for now, I’ll stay here.copyright protection43PENANAKK1zHi7S9J

Next to me, I found a notebook, how nice. There’s a pencil, too. I thought I’d break the graphite at some point, but I don’t seem to be able to. All the pages are blank but these blue lines to indicate where to write. I’m going to record everything that happens here, every little detail at a time. I mean, it’s not like there’s much else to do. I don’t want to leave this rock, though. Where would I even go? Is there anywhere even to go?copyright protection43PENANAcYU9NX3GPA

I stood up earlier to get a good look around me and all I could see is this bare stone going on and on for miles. Even when I squinted, there was just nothing, absolutely nothing.copyright protection43PENANArCgaJbkZmv

I guess I should hop off this rock. Well, not now. I have a bad feeling. This rock is like my bed. I don’t want to leave.copyright protection43PENANAU7gWHXfOQo

Although, I probably should. There’s nothing here on this rock, except me, this pencil, and this notebook.copyright protection43PENANAx3nrdapgRf

I’ll think about it tomorrow.copyright protection43PENANAQjR7uBiOBF

Let’s do this!copyright protection43PENANA6QruiEFIUw

copyright protection43PENANAXLQPSkqb82

I just dropped of the rock. There’s some stone. It’s quite barren. No grass, no trees, no animals, nothing, really. It just keeps going and going.copyright protection43PENANARsyF31aBJt

Maybe I’ll find something.copyright protection43PENANAZQkrlD50l0

I got tired and fell asleep on the ground. Everything just feels heavy all the time. I just noticed it, but there’s no night or day here. Just light. It’s not harsh or anything, there’s not even a sun up there. I just get tired and fall asleep. That’s just kinda how it works.copyright protection43PENANAAIj8nmaxXT

I feel like I should be going somewhere or doing something, but I don’t know.copyright protection43PENANA1XJlo4Zt5k

I’ll just go to sleep again. After all, all I’ve been doing it walking.copyright protection43PENANAuCDg0KVHjM

47Please respect copyright.PENANA0wExlzJO9d

5copyright protection43PENANAyTvR2Tdcra

I just noticed. I haven’t eaten once. I haven’t been thirsty, or even had any sense of hunger at all. So then why did I randomly have to go pee? Where did that even come from?copyright protection43PENANA5s7POvUNZZ

I just felt this pain in my abdomen, and well, I didn’t want to pee on the rocks, so I held it in for a while. I kept walking until the pain got to me.copyright protection43PENANA7tCLKCwGkP

Now there’s just this random puddle on the ground.copyright protection43PENANAtSIYJLSXXj

I wanted to see what will happen to it, so now I’m just kinda sitting here...writing about my pee.copyright protection43PENANA73LfSALNnL

Great.copyright protection43PENANAMvepgZ1MFm

47Please respect copyright.PENANAwmm5pS27Ad

6copyright protection43PENANAB8ek6Y6YV3

It’s gone! It’s gone! My pee evaporated! No puddle, nothing!copyright protection43PENANAi374iZE4N1

Hm…I wonder where it went. Into the air? Am I breathing it in as I write this?copyright protection43PENANAPAw4ZN31zI

AA--Oh wait. Evaporation doesn’t work like that.copyright protection43PENANAnbQCwXACWv

I should start walking again.copyright protection43PENANAFeyMiRMWVA

copyright protection43PENANAYKauO9iRbR

As I was walking, I thought about some stuff.copyright protection43PENANAAy2qayoKbk

I guess I’ll put it here. It helps clear my mind to write in this.copyright protection43PENANAgRzPESGqOB

One thing I can confirm: I am male.copyright protection43PENANA1NmbibkA3v

New concept, I know.copyright protection43PENANArD4u4f3sZe

But here’s the odd thing. How did I not even know my own gender? I mean, it’s not like there’s mirrors lying about everywhere, but I should at least have known that, surely?copyright protection43PENANANg5m5JeLa3

I wonder what I look like. I think I have brown hair? It’s too short to get a good look at it, but if the curtains match the drapes, it’s brown.copyright protection43PENANAnbQJm8VHJY

Another thing. All my clothes are white. I have a plain white shirt, plain white sweatpants, and plain white sneakers. No socks. Strange, isn’t it?copyright protection43PENANAdaBiFGxI8x

On the plus side, I have black and white checkered boxers. Those are pretty cool.copyright protection43PENANAXWN2iSMxEX

My shoes are starting to wear. I guess I’ve been walking a lot.copyright protection43PENANAB28sLvBHdk

Hm...I’m pretty tired, I think I’ll go to sleep. ‘Till tomorrow.copyright protection43PENANAFrvhJaXgT6

I walked some. Then I st~pped. I don’t know what overcame me, b~t I can’t stop crying. I’m trying to n~~ get it on the notebook, but that’s not rea~y w~rk~~ng.copyright protection43PENANASjWnAFyyWr

47Please respect copyright.PENANAyAJUG8NIgo

There’s just nothing. How long have I been walking? Who am I kidding? I’m crying because I’m all alone out here. I’m lost and there’s nothing. Endless empty skies, where’s the goddamn sun!copyright protection43PENANAEJhHkb2ORV

47Please respect copyright.PENANAV8ZQ8SH1eL

No.copyright protection43PENANAXuq8fn4xVI

That’s not why I’m crying.copyright protection43PENANA2N2YbCEJaA

I’m forgetting something. I go to search for it, but when I find that nothing, I cry. I feel worthless and pathetic and miserable. Miserable that I’m out here, rotting away by myself. Rotting in nothing, only to become nothing.copyright protection43PENANAbPkswFEzuv

Why do I even keep walking?copyright protection43PENANAurZVAfiFMd

Where to?47Please respect copyright.PENANAoePjTqy8KC
For what purpose?copyright protection43PENANAnP0pOc2sVd

Why continue when I could just sleep?copyright protection43PENANA372nAz3e8x

Ah, that sounds nice.copyright protection43PENANAJDZIyzYQeK

Maybe I’ll never wake up.copyright protection43PENANA4CA42oh5Rd

47Please respect copyright.PENANAvjdfdUo1CE

8copyright protection43PENANAiUkliUUl83

I woke up.copyright protection43PENANATSGTAftz6I

47Please respect copyright.PENANApyMopVh6Ww

I thought that if I gave up, it would all end.copyright protection43PENANAkalUfniwt9

I was wrong.copyright protection43PENANAJL437mY2I6

I should walk. It’s all I can really do, as painful as it is.copyright protection43PENANA5CZMvA1Y97

Just stop thinking.copyright protection43PENANAGti1nxpF3S

One foot, then the other. One foot, then the other.copyright protection43PENANAPNETRMgPOY

Here I go.copyright protection43PENANAWTAVG6vI4E

Grass! There’s grass! A miracle! I think I’m alive inside!copyright protection43PENANA60wLUnxacl

I’m just lying here, in this grass, so fluffy, so amazing.copyright protection43PENANA89fJ5VPADU

Actually, it’s kind brown and coarse. It’s sharp and it pricks my arms.copyright protection43PENANAftFnBtSgH3

But it’s grass. Life! that may be actually dead. who knooooooows. I’m so boooooored.copyright protection43PENANAZN4vyYS585

copyright protection43PENANArhfG1kBQUe

It’s a bit sad that seeing simple grass makes me this happy. When you’re out here, you forget the little things sometimes.copyright protection43PENANAK9IqxjUpAB

As much as I want to lie down and take a nap, I should keep walking. I’ll take some grass with me.copyright protection43PENANAtzpx4YvX4E

Walking is the only thing I can be sure of.copyright protection43PENANA2vWhbXCNNw

This pain is the only thing that keeps me alive.copyright protection43PENANA2yGKZd4TDE

copyright protection43PENANAv6dVDiT9fX

What if this world is like a treadmill and I’m just walking in place?copyright protection43PENANANisJAEGcru

I don’t want to think about that.copyright protection43PENANAJt2pd2DhWg

Luckily, there’s too much that doesn’t make sense, if that’s truly the case. Why is there grass here now and not before? Why is it getting...Taller?copyright protection43PENANAWrm9m0rf9H

It’s the same brown, coarse, prickly stuff, but it goes up to my knees now. I’m not sure how tall I am, but that’s about two of my shoes stacked ontop of eachother, so pretty tall as far as grass goes. When I look off into the distance, all I see in the same brown, dead, dusty underbrush.copyright protection43PENANAdWZFGAjnMK

I’m really tired now, so I’m going to go to sleep. Maybe I could make a bed with all this grass.copyright protection43PENANARweUVrWzJS

47Please respect copyright.PENANAQib4ypYWqB

10copyright protection43PENANAQGjcPGdhWm

The bed really helped. Better than sleeping on that cold, lonely stone. My back isn’t in pain (well, not as much pain). I still have that grass stuck in my waistband. It didn’t vanish. At least that’s a plus.copyright protection43PENANAZ9jZP0z8nm

I’m going to keep walking and stop overthinking things.copyright protection43PENANATeS78Oz4nj

copyright protection43PENANAXdZhqPXE6U

So I’m sitting next to a particular section of the grass. And I’m waiting.copyright protection43PENANA154k4TlE2I

That strange sensation happened again.copyright protection43PENANA0VXT35HCa5

I had to pee.copyright protection43PENANAW8jVpKKnoR

Why? I didn’t even drink anything. Hell, I didn’t even eat anything.copyright protection43PENANAhpXlK2f5Gh

Shouldn’t I be dead? Why world?!copyright protection43PENANANHcLBfQiS1

Ha…copyright protection43PENANAoO9HKzruWP

I guess I’ll stay here for now. Who knows, maybe a flower will grow or something stupid.copyright protection43PENANAmefkAZmP43

Hm…copyright protection43PENANA6SLjDmyuFr

47Please respect copyright.PENANAAPanezjwGg

It’s green.copyright protection43PENANA2Rqib0hyPm

Green.copyright protection43PENANACWfofSKOnq

Green.copyright protection43PENANAfTtvAfvPsZ

GREEN.copyright protection43PENANA1vRsN3s5Ci

Yellow + Brown = Green, it’s confirmed.copyright protection43PENANAreeGDuzniW

I need to start pissing more.copyright protection43PENANANyQh3qwygY

I never thought I’d see myself say that.copyright protection43PENANAyitqKhtdm5

47Please respect copyright.PENANA2yCNfhsmvf

I never mentioned this before, but underneath the grass is the stone. It’s a lot easier to see when the grass is nice and smooth like this. It just kinda juts out from the rock, no roots or anything like that. If I try to pull it out, it just tears by where it connects to the stone, leaving this stub thing.copyright protection43PENANAvNkKuXe3lx

If that is truly the case, then why is it green now? I’m not exactly sure how this stuff works, but that’s not how it works in the real world.copyright protection43PENANA095Rr9hXIy

Real world, huh.copyright protection43PENANAWgQqHBHaO4

Did I live somewhere else? This is the only ‘world’ I’ve ever known, after all. Did I lose my memory?copyright protection43PENANAgkSB4mzjqU

It’s quite uncomfortable when I try to reach for it. It’s like when you’re going to do something, then stop, having no idea what you were going to do. It’s that horrible pit in your stomach.copyright protection43PENANAQq4Whv5ztO

It’s strange. When you feel déjà vu, you’ve probably never actually done that before, so why do we associate it with that feeling? Where does that even come from?copyright protection43PENANA8q5YRMAzWo

47Please respect copyright.PENANAemyqq7Pp3f
I need to stop thinking about these things.
