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 protection45PENANA5MPbZSK14E

So, for now, I’ll stay here.copyright protection45PENANAIEBXxdyBul

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 protection45PENANADzFYng5F9L

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 protection45PENANAlexbqx3by7

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 protection45PENANAPhMrejEMV8

Although, I probably should. There’s nothing here on this rock, except me, this pencil, and this notebook.copyright protection45PENANA8yIOw64CLd

I’ll think about it tomorrow.copyright protection45PENANAn6sVhStk31

Let’s do this!copyright protection45PENANA8t2QhzWmbI

copyright protection45PENANAAzO3v6VYrZ

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 protection45PENANA0TTj8eRGec

Maybe I’ll find something.copyright protection45PENANAamGcdYLakX

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 protection45PENANAU08Njg2bXh

I feel like I should be going somewhere or doing something, but I don’t know.copyright protection45PENANAo7D4kR251n

I’ll just go to sleep again. After all, all I’ve been doing it walking.copyright protection45PENANA3TizAgBoaC

49Please respect copyright.PENANAOcVPnROg0P

5copyright protection45PENANAD5CMTW3V80

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 protection45PENANAcw8QAsHCyJ

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 protection45PENANA0BDibezNCK

Now there’s just this random puddle on the ground.copyright protection45PENANApgP23IY6E6

I wanted to see what will happen to it, so now I’m just kinda sitting here...writing about my pee.copyright protection45PENANA7QCfHdIpQg

Great.copyright protection45PENANA9QRM830HQC

49Please respect copyright.PENANAUKlK1L5trE

6copyright protection45PENANArfThhXZg3D

It’s gone! It’s gone! My pee evaporated! No puddle, nothing!copyright protection45PENANAnbu0rcd9B3

Hm…I wonder where it went. Into the air? Am I breathing it in as I write this?copyright protection45PENANApKUhw3kwKa

AA--Oh wait. Evaporation doesn’t work like that.copyright protection45PENANA9cq3tH0sY4

I should start walking again.copyright protection45PENANA6lgAmHMzQo

copyright protection45PENANADg9xxFARcl

As I was walking, I thought about some stuff.copyright protection45PENANA2mysq2arv8

I guess I’ll put it here. It helps clear my mind to write in this.copyright protection45PENANAwBuMbQtYqk

One thing I can confirm: I am male.copyright protection45PENANAm4AwB7bcZo

New concept, I know.copyright protection45PENANAy1L7tc9EDE

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 protection45PENANAMafhWr8qqz

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 protection45PENANAKNDljfsvrr

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 protection45PENANAT0tF7WRgAv

On the plus side, I have black and white checkered boxers. Those are pretty cool.copyright protection45PENANAUnFaFCCO22

My shoes are starting to wear. I guess I’ve been walking a lot.copyright protection45PENANAnNP088fBDH

Hm...I’m pretty tired, I think I’ll go to sleep. ‘Till tomorrow.copyright protection45PENANA3xHwdPt554

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 protection45PENANAgxZY3cNwiT

49Please respect copyright.PENANAHhy32zP82g

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 protection45PENANABTU3a5b3S7

49Please respect copyright.PENANAMdcP0EkhyJ

No.copyright protection45PENANA0IqKoKDcj7

That’s not why I’m crying.copyright protection45PENANADAFDyIQmf8

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 protection45PENANAgQ2aUcg5g9

Why do I even keep walking?copyright protection45PENANAcgRC1gnFsG

Where to?49Please respect copyright.PENANAOyYxt2EhV1
For what purpose?copyright protection45PENANAM6hsJQbAdq

Why continue when I could just sleep?copyright protection45PENANAIthKEbXUhe

Ah, that sounds nice.copyright protection45PENANA3tuV6wbtbD

Maybe I’ll never wake up.copyright protection45PENANAaYJrqtiB3v

49Please respect copyright.PENANA5CjDGmdvug

8copyright protection45PENANA2MYkxDwvxN

I woke up.copyright protection45PENANAJAhewnKHQW

49Please respect copyright.PENANAMgtY6uDqLb

I thought that if I gave up, it would all end.copyright protection45PENANAl1U5slyLXC

I was wrong.copyright protection45PENANAgZpfkWSQrq

I should walk. It’s all I can really do, as painful as it is.copyright protection45PENANAEa1Voxi9f9

Just stop thinking.copyright protection45PENANA5Aa0FDleoi

One foot, then the other. One foot, then the other.copyright protection45PENANARFigVCdOtE

Here I go.copyright protection45PENANAe7Pf3eMmn1

Grass! There’s grass! A miracle! I think I’m alive inside!copyright protection45PENANA7onqEi2R6w

I’m just lying here, in this grass, so fluffy, so amazing.copyright protection45PENANAwlDmAHAn3Y

Actually, it’s kind brown and coarse. It’s sharp and it pricks my arms.copyright protection45PENANApys2eVkxLR

But it’s grass. Life! that may be actually dead. who knooooooows. I’m so boooooored.copyright protection45PENANAfSfDjUWlM2

copyright protection45PENANARjovFZcgmg

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 protection45PENANAfMOHO3D9Bo

As much as I want to lie down and take a nap, I should keep walking. I’ll take some grass with me.copyright protection45PENANA0RhguAaqWX

Walking is the only thing I can be sure of.copyright protection45PENANAtOgRjWQwcd

This pain is the only thing that keeps me alive.copyright protection45PENANANr0C9PFMYg

copyright protection45PENANAbY7sfC3q2Z

What if this world is like a treadmill and I’m just walking in place?copyright protection45PENANAnvOEn8AdFM

I don’t want to think about that.copyright protection45PENANArser4ngKae

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 protection45PENANA0ld8OtKSTN

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 protection45PENANARgjGUGOvUt

I’m really tired now, so I’m going to go to sleep. Maybe I could make a bed with all this grass.copyright protection45PENANAilVwNZU3J5

49Please respect copyright.PENANANAJ7dptrUX

10copyright protection45PENANAiKqwTf0E7T

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 protection45PENANArZaLF5rtAl

I’m going to keep walking and stop overthinking things.copyright protection45PENANAWSHRpuRjyB

copyright protection45PENANAoRmPof5oTc

So I’m sitting next to a particular section of the grass. And I’m waiting.copyright protection45PENANAhlbs6Rxyk7

That strange sensation happened again.copyright protection45PENANATh0B9p50JE

I had to pee.copyright protection45PENANAC8vYXTd3i7

Why? I didn’t even drink anything. Hell, I didn’t even eat anything.copyright protection45PENANAfztr1ziz7D

Shouldn’t I be dead? Why world?!copyright protection45PENANAH1UHC46I4Q

Ha…copyright protection45PENANAmHYSFWMSZ4

I guess I’ll stay here for now. Who knows, maybe a flower will grow or something stupid.copyright protection45PENANA0fEtGG3Zfb

Hm…copyright protection45PENANADWcyEPCLyG

49Please respect copyright.PENANAHHebFkFiKq

11copyright protection45PENANABVnzO3wAWv

It’s green.copyright protection45PENANAFWKjqrZtrf

Green.copyright protection45PENANAE4cRCQHeBg

Green.copyright protection45PENANAVcbjMZmiAi

GREEN.copyright protection45PENANAOffzyF0y8r

Yellow + Brown = Green, it’s confirmed.copyright protection45PENANANNvZF7Qmmr

I need to start pissing more.copyright protection45PENANAChDOAqOXIo

I never thought I’d see myself say that.copyright protection45PENANAfxDu6b96Ki

49Please respect copyright.PENANAuV0d47rfTW

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 protection45PENANAyy63yLbo8y

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 protection45PENANAPLPtzqTnnC

Real world, huh.copyright protection45PENANALC9p7gBhml

Did I live somewhere else? This is the only ‘world’ I’ve ever known, after all. Did I lose my memory?copyright protection45PENANAAVTGYrraPz

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 protection45PENANAIFky9UY2hl

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 protection45PENANAF3YPt554ns

49Please respect copyright.PENANAmHw6OKvhcq
I need to stop thinking about these things.
