The Whole Truth

Posted 10-04-2017 at 12:03 AM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Most people who are familiar with pop culture know the classic courtroom line: "Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?" In most other contexts, the phrase would seem needlessly repetitive, but it makes an important distinction in the court of law, where one word could be a life or death sentence for the accused. It also brings up the a characteristic of truth we tend to forget in everyday life: it is entirely possible to tell the truth without telling...

You Reap What You S(wall)ow

Posted 09-27-2017 at 12:18 AM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

This will be a more specifically macro-related post than the last few. At least, that's the plan.

Since the above phrase has entered into common usage and lost some of its initial connotation, I wanted to remind myself of the original context. So, if you'll pardon the slight digression, here's what I found:

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption,...

Give speech, eat veggies, contemplate immortality... Check.

Posted 09-20-2017 at 10:03 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Things never seem to go quite how you plan them. That's why when I give a speech (for my major, I give many), even though I'll have anything from a couple key words to a full numbered outline with citations up there with me, I still like to wing it to an extent. I go into it expecting to say certain things, but the moment often brings more clarity or better ways to connect with the audience. Often (like today) I fear I may have sacrificed any professional ethos with my casual, interactive style...

Quantum Physics, Chocolate, and the Incarnation

Posted 09-14-2017 at 10:35 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Today I got a taste of quantum physics for science class. Apparently protons can act like particles and waves at the same time. And they can be in a state of "not-thereness" that lets them phase through something they would normally bounce off of when in particle mode. It's so crazy to imagine that there are parts of matter that can be there and not there at the same time, and all sorts of other conditions normal objects never inhabit. Or do they?

I've been feeling...

Not All That Is Raw Can Be Cooked

Posted 09-11-2017 at 10:08 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Okay, it's been a week since I last posted. A crazy week. This is the first semester when I'm taking only five classes instead of six, and the first semester I think I'll still like all of them by the end. But all of them require extensive reading assignments, so I've been spending my afternoons and evenings with my textbooks for company. Still getting used to time management on the new schedule. I arrive to almost every class within seconds of the bell. (Then again, what else is new?)
