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 protection54PENANARv3JTemTcB

So, for now, I’ll stay here.copyright protection54PENANAOAiRb7y3Fi

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 protection54PENANAh1GAu0qYkr

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 protection54PENANAxbXAVRPiL1

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 protection54PENANATzCcrOkZR0

Although, I probably should. There’s nothing here on this rock, except me, this pencil, and this notebook.copyright protection54PENANAi82YIwZ9vj

I’ll think about it tomorrow.copyright protection54PENANAB2vzCrqrJb

Let’s do this!copyright protection54PENANAauTdtCJsLe

copyright protection54PENANAMnhiWTJnlt

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 protection54PENANAzO7kTXxM8K

Maybe I’ll find something.copyright protection54PENANAxjfqwI2fbO

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 protection54PENANAt4PApIyWuG

I feel like I should be going somewhere or doing something, but I don’t know.copyright protection54PENANAG2ZVsvEuLP

I’ll just go to sleep again. After all, all I’ve been doing it walking.copyright protection54PENANAigOu24CI48

58Please respect copyright.PENANAKXzy71V8AJ

5copyright protection54PENANAJydy8ChHzM

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 protection54PENANAngOmbgSQLE

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 protection54PENANAG4UuyWybFD

Now there’s just this random puddle on the ground.copyright protection54PENANAkobxXkae1J

I wanted to see what will happen to it, so now I’m just kinda sitting here...writing about my pee.copyright protection54PENANA0p0OMb5E2Q

Great.copyright protection54PENANAiIUdctaLEP

58Please respect copyright.PENANA76Jrb1VonN

6copyright protection54PENANApYeBwbVHpX

It’s gone! It’s gone! My pee evaporated! No puddle, nothing!copyright protection54PENANArqmrf8DkNF

Hm…I wonder where it went. Into the air? Am I breathing it in as I write this?copyright protection54PENANAa6n5kAyuld

AA--Oh wait. Evaporation doesn’t work like that.copyright protection54PENANAkLcymJJhq9

I should start walking again.copyright protection54PENANAfRzCiOLW9z

copyright protection54PENANABkFZpZzYuV

As I was walking, I thought about some stuff.copyright protection54PENANAcOGom376ly

I guess I’ll put it here. It helps clear my mind to write in this.copyright protection54PENANAfApPdIEYEN

One thing I can confirm: I am male.copyright protection54PENANAxg8dfxcPwH

New concept, I know.copyright protection54PENANALIvs7RvfYQ

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 protection54PENANANeqc3EVICA

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 protection54PENANAw9QEn5cAUI

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 protection54PENANAhGrM8yEDNC

On the plus side, I have black and white checkered boxers. Those are pretty cool.copyright protection54PENANAtAQUNUyJCb

My shoes are starting to wear. I guess I’ve been walking a lot.copyright protection54PENANAj9l9NIf0i9

Hm...I’m pretty tired, I think I’ll go to sleep. ‘Till tomorrow.copyright protection54PENANAJzQalYJ0Bx

7copyright protection54PENANALYa68YOnY7

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 protection54PENANAxHGnS2lB3X

58Please respect copyright.PENANAK7ouzAvvYS

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 protection54PENANA8F3g94cxER

58Please respect copyright.PENANAiysZ5IC5Zp

No.copyright protection54PENANAypQIvYGklE

That’s not why I’m crying.copyright protection54PENANArTl8gebCPe

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 protection54PENANAzXUDe3IqBm

Why do I even keep walking?copyright protection54PENANAh9L7Rh6xBr

Where to?58Please respect copyright.PENANAT5XFL3xt4x
For what purpose?copyright protection54PENANAc2kybBMmdB

Why continue when I could just sleep?copyright protection54PENANABNzvqNz8da

Ah, that sounds nice.copyright protection54PENANAvvjgCaxII9

Maybe I’ll never wake up.copyright protection54PENANAaUcvsn7fKk

58Please respect copyright.PENANALPFakfKPKJ

8copyright protection54PENANAQl7pRycqHq

I woke up.copyright protection54PENANAAcVUty51hO

58Please respect copyright.PENANAI2ha2nTEsS

I thought that if I gave up, it would all end.copyright protection54PENANAasImXbJ4qu

I was wrong.copyright protection54PENANAphPxGG6T7N

I should walk. It’s all I can really do, as painful as it is.copyright protection54PENANAkI0fCuNHw4

Just stop thinking.copyright protection54PENANAvGwe3uqNzQ

One foot, then the other. One foot, then the other.copyright protection54PENANAhZ86wPNCIU

Here I go.copyright protection54PENANAq3CrifW6Xs

9copyright protection54PENANAbt8IHbd8YN

Grass! There’s grass! A miracle! I think I’m alive inside!copyright protection54PENANAZfM7mjWaVF

I’m just lying here, in this grass, so fluffy, so amazing.copyright protection54PENANA4mIHO1WK8U

Actually, it’s kind brown and coarse. It’s sharp and it pricks my arms.copyright protection54PENANAcknl25wgdv

But it’s grass. Life! that may be actually dead. who knooooooows. I’m so boooooored.copyright protection54PENANA3cLQk89gi5

copyright protection54PENANAVnrE4fG10O

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 protection54PENANAVc8jxbo4sB

As much as I want to lie down and take a nap, I should keep walking. I’ll take some grass with me.copyright protection54PENANAAvOmm8uvpM

Walking is the only thing I can be sure of.copyright protection54PENANABla2ZfiFhj

This pain is the only thing that keeps me alive.copyright protection54PENANAucvDw3OU8g

copyright protection54PENANAwJMl59tzES

What if this world is like a treadmill and I’m just walking in place?copyright protection54PENANAmgewjdLBT2

I don’t want to think about that.copyright protection54PENANAUnfq0LuPGD

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 protection54PENANA6cmTxr211H

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 protection54PENANAUnX8TgmFSf

I’m really tired now, so I’m going to go to sleep. Maybe I could make a bed with all this grass.copyright protection54PENANAINDYeEKIur

58Please respect copyright.PENANA6YZM8j1S9M

10copyright protection54PENANAmADIub9wda

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 protection54PENANAe8ycgstC8l

I’m going to keep walking and stop overthinking things.copyright protection54PENANASQ9wPnaz6E

copyright protection54PENANA0sfEbJQlg4

So I’m sitting next to a particular section of the grass. And I’m waiting.copyright protection54PENANAvvc4Hswa5E

That strange sensation happened again.copyright protection54PENANAwYvFul3EU9

I had to pee.copyright protection54PENANAjVCyANir8z

Why? I didn’t even drink anything. Hell, I didn’t even eat anything.copyright protection54PENANAvE5IIMbfXg

Shouldn’t I be dead? Why world?!copyright protection54PENANATtfp9JKcnF

Ha…copyright protection54PENANAlHBXgcLzDT

I guess I’ll stay here for now. Who knows, maybe a flower will grow or something stupid.copyright protection54PENANA89xdSg03vY

Hm…copyright protection54PENANAkprzOBizNG

58Please respect copyright.PENANACSOT3RgXwJ

11copyright protection54PENANAe9nQ7D2SdG

It’s green.copyright protection54PENANALmQjzIzAL4

Green.copyright protection54PENANAy5t0EiCWRp

Green.copyright protection54PENANAD6y0WGEZyR

GREEN.copyright protection54PENANAFjdwCNeco0

Yellow + Brown = Green, it’s confirmed.copyright protection54PENANAgX5KYK2AHU

I need to start pissing more.copyright protection54PENANA0k0zlWf0WN

I never thought I’d see myself say that.copyright protection54PENANARB758KTmWh

58Please respect copyright.PENANAPB6OD7xIGK

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 protection54PENANAmdfsXdd0OV

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 protection54PENANAUOfUnBRCBN

Real world, huh.copyright protection54PENANAqtpxzxisUe

Did I live somewhere else? This is the only ‘world’ I’ve ever known, after all. Did I lose my memory?copyright protection54PENANAKhsZKpdXq1

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 protection54PENANASkQ8edK6Ql

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 protection54PENANAUhPkPoR7QM

58Please respect copyright.PENANATMISzQcAJm
I need to stop thinking about these things.
