Sure, living in the moment can be healthy. However, pretending that the world is going to end in 5 minutes every half an hour can be taxing. I need to find a balance.
One of my dear plants, Ramshackle, has died after getting sick. It was painful to watch, but I know that I did my best, which is what matters I guess. The circle of life and all that jazz.
An interesting concept: A fire detector being on fire. I think this kind of summarizes where I am at this point in the semester. There a fire within me, and I am screaming hysterically. Progress ensues.
We learned about the sea squirt in Vision class. The sea squirt, supposedly, digests its own brain and nervous system after finding a place to live. This stemmed from a discussion presented by someone who claims that the ONLY reason we have a brain is to move. Nothing else. I disagree, but it’s an interesting concept. Don’t be a sea squirt. Don’t stop moving. Don’t digest your brain. There’s too much goodness in the world to stop moving and digest yourself. Don’t be a sea squirt.
A rabbit has a nearly 360 degree field of view. Jealous?
Also, our eyes are small dipoles. Pretty neato.
I enjoyed my first cup of coffee this past week. Before, it had always just been consumed for the simple sake of energy. But. I actually enjoyed it, to an extent. I’m kind of afraid. I still don’t like the taste, but I think my taste buds might be doing a thing. Neato.
I’m not sure how I’ve been doing. It has been rather wonky. Almost done with my first year of college, though, so that’s… terrifying, but I just have to keep my eyes open and my head up. I know, for one thing, that I’m moving. I have a brain, after all.
I hope that you are doing alright. I genuinely mean that.
