[monologue incoming] When you think about it, we humans really are a weird species. We never seem to settle in anywhere. We don’t really belong to an ecosytem ♻️and aren’t really able to define an ideal habitat. There just is no pleasing us – we always yearn for what’s not available. A lack of challenges and we get weak, too many challenges and we suffer. We spend all our resources on making life more pleasant, we have machines replacing our every move, only then we have to go to the gym to lift weights, and out on survival camps😄 we constantly want to prolong our life expectancy, but then most of us decides to stop really living and improving at age 55 anyway. And don‘t get me started on our relationships …! These days we can choose from literally millions of potential mates, all these options should improve the quality of our matches, yet lasting relationships are on an all-time low. So we are again collectively unhappy, isolated in total connectivity. The other day i stumbled across a new dating show on #Netflix where men and women directly propose to a mate, only based on them talking through a wall for a couple of days. I love this show, it’s really entertaining … but it’s also freakin ‘sick 😄😄😄 Whatever it was that made us leave the jungles and the caves back then – we are still teenagers as a species at most, still finding out who we actually are, just trying out stuff simply because we can, going from one extreme to the other until hopefully a new level of wisdom emerges, preferably before we ruin our entire future. We are not there yet! 😄☝🏾 [end of monologue] 📸 @itij

On the other hand, it must be remembered that Sampson also has a good handful of Spanish fans, since he had a special appearance at the Operation Gala 2018 Christmas gala, during which he performed live, along with the winner of the edition, Famous Oberogo, the song that a few months later would earn him third place in Eurovision. It remains to be seen if his career in politics ultimately brings him as much success as he has in the music industry.
