Wanderer 1727, log
I know there are problems in the Universe. Big problems. Known and unknown. Impacting me and not. I have felt that urge at times to DO SOMETHING. To participate in the improvement and welfare of my little corner of the galaxy.
But the fact of the matter is that the universe is also full of delicious little distractions. Pleasures and endeavors in every direction, anywhere my ship might take me. Some of these are dangerous of course - I love a life threatening thrill.
Most of the time, though, I steer clear of all of that. Of the danger, yes, but the fixing Universal problems too. I haven't always, and I've paid for it dearly in ways I'm not eager to repeat.
Most of the time, I just drift, drink and degen. It's safe, it's easy, it's fun - and it helps keep me from thinking too much about where I came from or where I'm going. Not the life for everyone, but it's mine.
Universe saving can wait.
