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 protection48PENANAEYjIf0JUWz

So, for now, I’ll stay here.copyright protection48PENANAcCEXy7isp3

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 protection48PENANAgQ9mK2zcTW

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 protection48PENANAdyVwgawZ4t

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 protection48PENANAzh5dfEkx6K

Although, I probably should. There’s nothing here on this rock, except me, this pencil, and this notebook.copyright protection48PENANABnBKKlMjxG

I’ll think about it tomorrow.copyright protection48PENANAfLeahulOuq

Let’s do this!copyright protection48PENANAl5vWQfiDyP

copyright protection48PENANAjNBxYT2kHw

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 protection48PENANAKZAsmRoosS

Maybe I’ll find something.copyright protection48PENANAwOY1LOg3sO

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 protection48PENANATF5t7skwQN

I feel like I should be going somewhere or doing something, but I don’t know.copyright protection48PENANApnBooncFqF

I’ll just go to sleep again. After all, all I’ve been doing it walking.copyright protection48PENANAukq6PKId7D

52Please respect copyright.PENANAxrfeI1qsDk

5copyright protection48PENANAi0jotrROYH

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 protection48PENANACn4dLtBY82

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 protection48PENANADCm4JbPsoW

Now there’s just this random puddle on the ground.copyright protection48PENANA5HWp6qRXfP

I wanted to see what will happen to it, so now I’m just kinda sitting here...writing about my pee.copyright protection48PENANAFRdK5ZdGYm

Great.copyright protection48PENANAICZ4HIgwbF

52Please respect copyright.PENANAk095OnHAA7

6copyright protection48PENANAtgnqGtQyq5

It’s gone! It’s gone! My pee evaporated! No puddle, nothing!copyright protection48PENANAn5WBP1A3Iy

Hm…I wonder where it went. Into the air? Am I breathing it in as I write this?copyright protection48PENANAqqapvR8Loj

AA--Oh wait. Evaporation doesn’t work like that.copyright protection48PENANAqRAOhgh8OH

I should start walking again.copyright protection48PENANAecNaNDcoHU

copyright protection48PENANAW7l7wQZEBn

As I was walking, I thought about some stuff.copyright protection48PENANAX2fxQxO8GD

I guess I’ll put it here. It helps clear my mind to write in this.copyright protection48PENANAPUPD5Dhi1Y

One thing I can confirm: I am male.copyright protection48PENANAcX5x5Cn4gZ

New concept, I know.copyright protection48PENANAse2ILTgA1W

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 protection48PENANAdQQ3uWGLeH

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 protection48PENANAJrFPZLrnQH

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 protection48PENANAmiWp1Hihhj

On the plus side, I have black and white checkered boxers. Those are pretty cool.copyright protection48PENANAeva5yE1fpf

My shoes are starting to wear. I guess I’ve been walking a lot.copyright protection48PENANAW9HCYGnp3d

Hm...I’m pretty tired, I think I’ll go to sleep. ‘Till tomorrow.copyright protection48PENANA7qw3PyL7P3

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 protection48PENANAxkh4o7Caes

52Please respect copyright.PENANAqu7AAWYiwz

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 protection48PENANAdFwMfFUuQh

52Please respect copyright.PENANApRpMXBL6kF

No.copyright protection48PENANA9gAYowLcQY

That’s not why I’m crying.copyright protection48PENANA4ojmsHt5SH

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 protection48PENANAx5m4SCJN7z

Why do I even keep walking?copyright protection48PENANA4hQEffb1r1

Where to?52Please respect copyright.PENANAEx6EYLlsSw
For what purpose?copyright protection48PENANAZwpiSS0lYS

Why continue when I could just sleep?copyright protection48PENANA2vYpAQ2jD9

Ah, that sounds nice.copyright protection48PENANATIqKmGZxHr

Maybe I’ll never wake up.copyright protection48PENANAzGXZZPSZaQ

52Please respect copyright.PENANAAi1ITBERTb

8copyright protection48PENANASdmQDWHFgl

I woke up.copyright protection48PENANAPa3gUqWTYE

52Please respect copyright.PENANAqj2Q5ZrQ6M

I thought that if I gave up, it would all end.copyright protection48PENANAkxlixk7pki

I was wrong.copyright protection48PENANAfcwC39yKPP

I should walk. It’s all I can really do, as painful as it is.copyright protection48PENANA6EZ9UTzRMx

Just stop thinking.copyright protection48PENANAv75QpCbx1w

One foot, then the other. One foot, then the other.copyright protection48PENANAQhImTMwsxm

Here I go.copyright protection48PENANAhD0gMV9mNW

Grass! There’s grass! A miracle! I think I’m alive inside!copyright protection48PENANARRVzeOmKgT

I’m just lying here, in this grass, so fluffy, so amazing.copyright protection48PENANA6xw7Nj3XFQ

Actually, it’s kind brown and coarse. It’s sharp and it pricks my arms.copyright protection48PENANATz9YzisbDt

But it’s grass. Life! that may be actually dead. who knooooooows. I’m so boooooored.copyright protection48PENANAPulK4zzrkP

copyright protection48PENANAkrnQyb9B9P

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 protection48PENANAs3oB1YUt9y

As much as I want to lie down and take a nap, I should keep walking. I’ll take some grass with me.copyright protection48PENANAXY2iJ7Siyd

Walking is the only thing I can be sure of.copyright protection48PENANA8TEvJcHTOQ

This pain is the only thing that keeps me alive.copyright protection48PENANAIgT7RV5Loe

copyright protection48PENANAjldmEWuxe3

What if this world is like a treadmill and I’m just walking in place?copyright protection48PENANAKnWoSGBAAp

I don’t want to think about that.copyright protection48PENANAriGkqxfvjE

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 protection48PENANAKD0X0FUvc9

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 protection48PENANAzXwwlpcXZN

I’m really tired now, so I’m going to go to sleep. Maybe I could make a bed with all this grass.copyright protection48PENANAmq62LwA11U

52Please respect copyright.PENANAhlzi3sUHkO

10copyright protection48PENANAFLyGJzlD4y

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 protection48PENANAMDvi9RHmOH

I’m going to keep walking and stop overthinking things.copyright protection48PENANAab7geTMPUN

copyright protection48PENANAKAzigiRCVW

So I’m sitting next to a particular section of the grass. And I’m waiting.copyright protection48PENANAbIzG1JyI6n

That strange sensation happened again.copyright protection48PENANAqgzxwNqiDl

I had to pee.copyright protection48PENANA6nVFFcYxPT

Why? I didn’t even drink anything. Hell, I didn’t even eat anything.copyright protection48PENANAt0C3HDNfmU

Shouldn’t I be dead? Why world?!copyright protection48PENANADMacjH0K0D

Ha…copyright protection48PENANA6601MGeKe4

I guess I’ll stay here for now. Who knows, maybe a flower will grow or something stupid.copyright protection48PENANAEI4gLLUz1g

Hm…copyright protection48PENANAtE2EQmlQ6l

52Please respect copyright.PENANASK7VBcV232

It’s green.copyright protection48PENANAxD7CUToOsp

Green.copyright protection48PENANA4W47AUtVLz

Green.copyright protection48PENANAhfMJK1YVvX

GREEN.copyright protection48PENANAl3BtFwm3kP

Yellow + Brown = Green, it’s confirmed.copyright protection48PENANAtpLxwlsZhd

I need to start pissing more.copyright protection48PENANAzytmieog9T

I never thought I’d see myself say that.copyright protection48PENANAevXPYClkGG

52Please respect copyright.PENANAPAN8dcqBYb

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 protection48PENANAaa5VHBh9By

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 protection48PENANAna7Rwp5VFf

Real world, huh.copyright protection48PENANAOTKLJIo535

Did I live somewhere else? This is the only ‘world’ I’ve ever known, after all. Did I lose my memory?copyright protection48PENANALdfQ9Wsq63

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 protection48PENANAZue7mLwsGc

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 protection48PENANAHu6sgQbEVe

52Please respect copyright.PENANASfwsyzVshf
I need to stop thinking about these things.
