monapuertas asked: I don't know if you check this thing anymore but I remember looking at your blog years ago and loving almost everything you posted and today I was looking through my tumblr and somehow stumbled upon yours again and I thought it was really funny how it all kind of came back full circle haha
I don’t check it, but I still have email notifications on. Thank you for sharing that with me.. :)
A while ago I had several things happen all at once that taught me relationship and time priorities. Since then I haven’t spent much time online.
I do have a personal blog, (austinprescott.wordpress.com), but I keep the child-like side of me, that was most often seen on here, completely hidden. Many of the posts on there are more serious. e.g. I’ve been wanting to post two new posts on that blog: one about relationship priorities and another one about two basic ways that people can deal with emotional pain (using an engineering analogy that’s pretty good). I just haven’t got around to it because I’ve had a lot of demands on my time.
I have been so tense in the past 24 hours. I could hardly even sleep at all last night. X_X I haven’t been able to focus on anything. The smallest dumbest things have been annoying me (like how women are “emotional” when guys are clearly just as emotional). I heard a song about a girl begging her boyfriend to give her another chance to see that she’s the girl for him after he cheated on her, and that annoyed me something fierce. Someone asked me for help on something that I had already helped them with, and I felt kinda annoyed. Another person asked me to fix their hotmail email that turned out to be a problem on hotmail’s end, and that annoyed me. HW and my schedule is annoying me. My mom made something for lunch that I have a really hard time eating (I’ll throw up or gag if I don’t eat it super slowly), and that annoyed me even though I just ate left-overs instead. I looked up quantum computing, and I was annoyed because I wanted to look at the algorithms while at the same time not wanting to think through them, and that annoyed me. I was even annoyed by the thought that wikipedia might not have given the actual algorithm even though I didn’t even check, lol. I was really annoyed by the HW I have to do right now, so I started downloading a trial of Windows 8 (that’s unlike me). Someone re-blogged something that I had thought I already liked, but it turned out to be a slightly different post than the one I liked a few months ago. That annoyed me. I was talking to someone last night who had pretty much given up all ambitions, and that really bothered/annoyed me. I’m also annoyed that the GIF I made still won’t upload, but that might be a good thing since I’d probably be made fun of for it anyway - I already made it to someone’s facebook status on a related note. I had several other related GIFs planned as well, and it is annoying me that I can’t even make those now (until I get uploading to work). It is even annoying me that I don’t have someone to talk about technical with. My top wisdom teeth finally came in, and the back of my jaw is sore from rubbing against them (they are sharp). I had been playing a game in the evening to wind down, and last night I had to start it over since the save game corrupted from a glitch, and that kinda annoyed me. I haven’t even smiled today!
BLAH! I need to chill; listen to David Ingles, Kieth Moore, & Kari Jobe; and do my HW.
Why are so many people’s analytical thinking skills so low? I really would like to see them improved simply because such skills greatly improve a person’s life. Math and music theory are the most concentrated requirements of analytical thinking skills that I know of.
Teaching a person the thinking side of math or the technical side of music may help improve that person’s analytical thinking skills. I understand that math stretches the mind (not even considering poor teaching). I understand even more that most musicians just want to play music, not sit down for many hours studying it.
But, stretching the brain is good because it is like a muscle. When a politician can say two contradictory statements in the same speech without the masses noticing, we have a problem. When a speaker insults the crowd and receives an applause for it, we have a problem. When someone demonizes a person for saying/doing something while saying/doing the same thing and receives praise for it, we have a problem.
I wish I knew more “Yes we can” type people,
people who refuse to believe that the status quo is law,
people who refuse to limit themselves to what other people think they can do,
people who have the ambition, determination, and discipline to reach up and grab their star from the sky.
What do I mean by “their” star? I mean that impossible thing that God has for each person to do that (s)he can only accomplish by trusting and following Him.
EDIT: Btw, I know a few; I just want to know more.
I made a 4.1MB animated GIF, but Tumblr keeps giving me an upload error. :/
why is people rebloging this?
because it’s the GPOY of anyone who has ever seen Tangled.
but mostly the fandom
