Letting Go of Letting Go

II have trouble letting go of things. Fo real. Like if someone does me dirty, I hold on to my resentment against that person for as long as I can. And it usually gets worse over time.

However, let's look at the flip side: for the stuff that I really should be holding onto, I always forget about. Whether it's

Remembering to take the bread out of the oven


Remembering that thing I studied the night before the test

The Butterfly Effect

I've always found quantum physics and strange scientific theories fascinating. Granted, I don't understand a lot of it and most of the science behind certain theories goes way beyond my head, but, nevertheless, I still thoroughly enjoy off-the-beaten-path science.

An example of this is what I just saw this weekend. It's called superconduction. I'm not really sure what kind of sorcery is behind this, but they assure me it's real science: Superconduction Levitation.

Or how about stuff like light speed travel? Or even better yet, what about tachyons, which hypothetically travel faster than the speed of light? Such a particle would arrive before it was sent! And that, of course, takes a shotgun to the brain of science.

Simple Math

(The ideas contained herein originate largely from ideas that I heard from John MacArthur and Matt Chandler, but their roots are found in Scripture.)

Math always came pretty easy to me. As I progressed throughout grade school, I was pretty handy with numbers. Granted, I never got to the crazy stuff like Calculus or Trig, but I could tackle math with ease most of the time. However, for what I'm about to talk about, you might have to change what you know about math.

For most people, their lives follow a simple equation:

money + success + career = happy

Caesar Dressing, Coffee, and Boxes

The other day, I was sitting in the kitchen, about to start eating some food. So I grab the salad that was in the refrigerator from the day before and throw some Caesar dressing on it.


Only, at this point, my mom (who's rather sarcastic) says to me, "That's Caesar dressing with some salad." And it's true. I did put a lot of dressing on it. How else does one get rid of the taste of veggies?
