- I want something to look forward to. Everything has been very black and white for me lately. Nothing interesting. Only books are comforting me right now but beyond that nothing. How i wish i could be a part of this wonderful piece of literatures... I'm no longer as depressed as i was compared to the last few weeks. But right now time is moving very slowly with nothing to look forward to it takes its toll mentally. I wish i could just dissapear or something. What's wrong with me. -_-

How did i get here……oh men..
Lately my mind has been aimlessly wandering. I feel like I’m going nowhere. Dunno what to do with my life. Just going where the waves bring me but this isn’t me. I’m someone who has to have a plan and now i feel like I don’t have any…..i got lost somewhere along the way. -_-
What to do wat to do watudu…………..agjhalfjhfjdhlkfdlhj…….I need direction. I have too many things that i want to do and yet i don’t feel inspired at all but deep inside me i want to achieve them all but don’t know where to begin. I’m not even inspired to start. I need a spark but where do i get it? Something that will last until i find my next motivation…It makes me think too much sometimes that I’m overwhelmed and it makes me feel that i want to be nothing but i want to be everything.
Sometimes you just want the world to pause for a moment and then just lie down let your mind wander, relax, breathe, feel the breeze. Let time pass without a care in the world and then go back to reality and get the motivation to start whatever it is i want to do with my life.
Maybe i need new friends, or a new hobby, or a girlfriend. Finding new things to do and easily getting bored is a freaking nightmare…………what a life….on the outside looking like a normal happy person and on the inside it feels likes a tangled string….
Mentally, emotionally bored………looking for something to look forward to at least for a while or better yet forever…whatever will alleviate this deep void please fall into my lap. (Yeah right)
Someone infect me with a beaming smile what will make me glow inside and make me get off my ass and get things started..
oh, taking your advice and I’m looking on the bright side and balancing the whole thing :)
I liked how this mini - interview went. No sign of hostility by the interviewers. Very well done. It at least encourages the audience to listen without preconceived notion towards science.
Richard Feynman - No Ordinary Genius
One of the most astounding man of his generation. How I wish that I would’ve met him. He’s a really big inspiration for me, not just in science but also in life. There will never be another Richard Feynman, not even close.
A true inspiration…. :’)
The Great Debate: The Storytelling of Science (Part 1)
This is by far one of the most entertaining talks about science that I’ve watched. Clearly with the members of the cast I’d already expected this to be a great one add to that the overwhelming audience which makes it all the more exciting.
I like the stories they tell, how they tell it even. It really brings out my love and inspiration for science! This is a very great science show and really worth my 2hrs and 13min. I didn’t even notice the time. Hope there will be more events like these in the future and I can go attend one in the near future!
P.S. Watch part 2, It’s really hilarious!
I loved this debate. The eloquence of Sam Harris is something to marvel at. He speaks with the same confidence and as William Craig but in a more calm and professional manner. I didn’t like the way that he (Craig) points out certain points in Harris’ speech with those annoying smirks and little laughs that makes him seem like his opponent is intellectually inferior, so unprofessional.
Both make good points but what is annoying is William Craig just initiating his own rebuttals about how Harris is staying away from the topic when IN FACT he isn’t. Craig keeps saying that he’s not there to prove that GOD exists, he keeps hiding behind the constraints of the topic which is fair to say the least but it makes him look like an idiot for filling his rebuttal about complaints and less about how to respond to what Harris says. I can’t even comprehend the ignorance that he displays when he keeps going to the fundamental sources of morality and yet he completely IGNORES when Harris sites the social, mental, physical implications of morality based on religion while Harris at least attempts to explain the origins of morality and connecting to society.
It’s also annoying the way he sums up and assumes things about what Harris says even when Harris clearly stated when he talks that he isn’t referring to everyone. This is the kind of annoying, simple minded, debater who keeps appealing to the illogical beliefs of the masses to capture their votes even w/o presenting clearly rational and empirical evidences.
This is the kind that wins debates because he keeps you running around in circles w/ statements that are clearly impossible to have a reply to. And this the kind of guy that Craig is which Sam Harris said perfectly.
Water is two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. What if someone says “Well, that’s not how I choose to think about water.” All we can do is appeal to scientific values. And if he doesn’t share those values, the conversation is over. If someone doesn’t value evidence, what evidence are you going to provide to prove that they should value it? If someone doesn’t value logic, what logical argument could you provide to show the importance of logic?
I’m not even an atheist and I’m trying to be as unbiased as possible and not everyone may share my perspective regarding this but I can’t imagine how ignorant some people can be. It just astounds me….
I hate sleeping but i always sleep. It’s a waste of my time, if only i can stop not being able to sleep. We spend a third of our day sleeping and at least two decades sleeping in our whole lifetime and that’s a lot of time.
If only i can stop sleeping then i could continuously read, write, learn, anything! Oh how i wish i can not sleep but it’s just a distant dream! :(
The Overview Effect
“When we look down at the Earth from space we see this amazing, indescribably beautiful planet – it looks like a living, breathing organism. But it also, at the same time, looks extremely fragile.”
– Ron Garan
“If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.”
