I haven’t been able to think of a direction for this blog. I don’t want this to exist just so that I can “reblog” a bunch of pictures that I like. I’m not going to scroll through it again and say “yeah, I do like these pictures.” And I don’t think anyone who looks at my tumblr really cares anyway.
What I think I’m going to do is use this as an intensive for my creativity. I want to make something that is my own every week (at least) and post a picture, recording, description.. something. That will be good. It will shape this work in progress into what I want to be.
To all of my catholic friends: be grateful for the discovery of the Higgs Boson particle, because without which there’d be no mass!
It is my strongly held opinion that Mumford and Sons have a song for ever negative emotion you could ever have. I think Jason Mraz has a song for every iteration of love humans can experience.
Each speech indiscriminately ended with ‘God bless America!’ I’m not sure if that was a prayer or a command

I’m reading this book for Lenoir-Rhyne University’s summer reading. One of the ideas that Carr discusses is the plasticity of the human brain. Every decision we make, link we click, article we read, every place we go creates, destroys, strengthens, or weakens the neural pathways in our brains. This means we are perpetually a work in progress. It is important to remember that even our most mundane actions have implications and can shape us in subtle ways.
Even blogging is training my brain to deal in small parcels of information and to move quickly from topic to topic. For all the wonders the Internet has brought us, it is good to be cautious that our ability to sit down with a good book for hours doesn’t rot away completely.
