Week 7- Art Activity- Collabor-8

I wake up early to go on my early morning hike.
I get back home and work on some of my assignments, as per usual.
I got a call from my friends and we all decided to drop by the local ramen restaurant for lunch.
I’m home again. I sit down in my chair and daydream for a while. It’s almost winter. Hopefully, I can get back into snowboarding if I’m not too busy.
My best friend called me up and was craving Korean food, so we went to get some for dinner. Something seems a bit off though.
I’m home again. Back to work. I’ve been reading up on some articles of simulations and how in the future we can all get into a virtual space in our own avatars that we choose. It’s basically a simulation of anything we imagine we would want to do. I’ve been working for long enough. I should get some sleep.
I wake up around 8 am and I rub my eyes as my vision is still trying to adjust. I walk out of my bedroom door to see an unfamiliar setting. However, I also seem to know what to do. I’m slightly confused, but I continue doing what seems regular to me.
I shook my head and dismissed the weird feeling. I sat at my desk and picked decided to read up for the lecture I have later. I don’t remember how I retained all this information, but somehow I know so much without recognizing these pages.
It’s time to attend my classes and get some work out of the way.
I think I’m going to take a break and finish “The Son of Neptune”. I feel like there was another book I was just reading the other day, but I can’t remember what it was. Maybe something about economics?
I’m feeling a bit hungry. For lunch, I made myself Tonkatsu.
I’m done with everything for the day. Time to unwind a bit by playing Valorant. I think I’ll only play 2–3 rounds though. Something glitched in my brain?!?! I swear it wasn’t just the screen. I need to catch up on some sleep.
I wake up around 10 am. I rub my eyes. This does not seem familiar at all. Flowers on a pink wall?
My brain is going on autopilot. I sit down to read “The Giver” for a reading assignment. Again, I somehow already know how the story goes without recognizing the previous pages. I seem to know what I’m supposed to do, even though I have a feeling that I don’t necessarily belong here. I feel comfortable, yet eerily alien.
I go outside for a walk in my neighborhood. Again, I feel unfamiliar with where I am. But my brain seems to know what I’m doing and why I’m doing it. It’s like I’ve lived this life before. I look down at my hands. It feels like I’m in a simulation…
I finish my walk and start preparing for dinner. I somehow knew this recipe like the back of my hand. I’ve never made this kind of dish before though…
Time to work on some of my assignments before I go to sleep. I’ll drink some tea to warm me up. I finish up all my work and decide it’s time to sleep. As I go to sleep, everything goes dark. White letters start appearing before me. “Thank you for participating in the beta version of ‘Life Simulation’. Would you like to wipe out your experience and play again?”
