"Everything happens for a reason"

Really? No shit! Last time I checked, we lived in a reality ruled by causality. The reason for X is Y. The reason for this dude punching that guy is that guy pissing this dude off. The reason for this guy eating that sandwich is because he was hungry.

Thanks for the insight on one of the most basic and conspicuous workings of our reality, faggots.

The neat thing about honey...

This is from my experience. There's this moment between when the honey touches my tongue and the when I taste it, which is all too conspicuous to me. It lasts a whole second, which is quite a long time compared to the usual reaction time with other foods. However, I find the anticipation to be well-rewarded.

Second sleeps are great

I heard one of the best ways to attain the most lucid dreams is to go back to sleep shortly after the time you're accustomed to waking up. If you ever get the opportunity, try it out. I just woke up two hours ago from a 5-hour sleep (I had to wake up at 6:30 to drop my sister off at school) and the whole time I could've sworn I was awake.

I lack a fire.

I haven't written a song since...well, songwriting class. I doubt this some sort of trivial artist's block; I'm beginning to think that I don't have the mind of an artist.

I enjoy playing music because it's cathartic (and hella fun, depending on the song). When I try writing something, I get nowhere near any lyrics. Loads upon loads of melodies and chord progressions, but not a word. What do I want to sing about? I don't know; I haven't found anything worth singing about in months. Teacher said I had a bit of writing talent, but it's useless without something to use it on. I REALLY want to avoid creating something sappy or mopey or corny...but maybe, for a time, that's going to be unavoidable, until I can find the line that divides the trite song from the honest one.

You think I'd be high to post something like this...

The next time that I am famished, I intend to have a sub sandwich with a taco inside of it. The only details I've decided on is that it will be a crunchy shell taco. As far as the sandwich ingredients, I haven't decided; there's too many choices.

Chipotle sauce is definitely going in there.

Come on, now.

We will never understand the world as it "is". The means with which we perceive the world are flawed, and so it stands that our perceptions are flawed.

All our senses are lame. Our eyes can perceive only a fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum and our ears can catch only a small window of frequencies. Our sense of touch is utilitarian at best and dogs have a better sense of smell than us.

(As for taste, I don't find it relevant).

Twinkle, twinkle

People like stars. Bright pinholes in the curtain of night. Pretty to look at, very romantic.

It kills the mood for a lot of people to think about stars rationally. Typically referred to as "burning balls of gas". I don't know...even from a scientific standpoint, stars are pretty romantic.

Think about it; stars are produced by fusion reactions among pairs of hydrogen atoms. Through their union, they release an energy so bright that it pierces the cold void of space and reaches out to us as a twinkle that is vast distances, billions of lifetimes away.

If two specks of meager existence could do this, could two people manage to make their love known on such a scale?

Deja vu

It's been quite a while since I last updated this. I think I like getting bored: it gives me the initiative to find something to do, in this case, restart this blog.

It's funny, looking at the last post I made. I was actually very aggravated today, as I must have been when I wrote that entry so long ago. It's kind of eerie; it's almost as if nothing has changed.

But so much has changed. It's just harder to see if you aren't making comparisons with the past. If I didn't take the time to compare, I'd be convinced that I was still the same quiet, nerdy shut-in that I was in school.

There's been changes. To say the least.

Well, I'm anticipating having another good thought to rant about on this blog again; I think this thought is a bit trite, but it was an amusing coincidence :)
