Unrelated

So this has no direct correlation to gaming/technology/etc but I wanted to write it down anyway.
Ever get the feeling you can change the world? That you're supposed to? I'm torn because for years now I've dismissed such grandiose ideas as the fantasy of the naive. I mean, how many people have the means to make a noteworthy impact, especially someone like me who spends so much time with computers. On the other hand- maybe it's the artist in me- I feel the most rewarding way to live life, to find satisfaction, is to really leave your mark.
So what does that mean? Am I to set goals to become a Picasso or the digital equivalent? Should I be volunteering more? Maybe I should just find a friend that seems to be going places, and keep them happily inebriated so they don't get too stressed out while changing the world.
Gaming and art are great- fun, complex, inspirational. They've been a part of human culture for centuries, and are both things I thoroughly enjoy. Unfortunately they're not the easiest medium with which to improve the value of life.
Already 24, I have a lot of work ahead of me.

Anyway, this was just a post I thought I'd get down so I can edit as things come to me, and remind myself that I should never be bored.
