Learn to be Lonely

Posted 06-11-2017 at 11:51 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

When I was a little kid and my parents would take me to the grocery store, they tell me I would smile at people while in line for the cash register, persistently trying to get their attention until they smiled back.

When I was in seventh grade, I was terrified of talking to most people for fear of saying the one thing that would make them think I was stupid and lead them to reject me forever. My one semi-close friend (whose forceful, roller coaster personality I could tolerate better...

Krishna- who?

Thought for the day:
"The road to discontentment is paved with misplaced expectations."

(Ooh, that has to be the best thought I've had yet today! I know those other two also sounded just as brilliant at the time, but this one really shows depth and... and depth... I have to go post this on Facebook, and Twitter, and if I add it on top of a really sweet picture, I could even post it on Instagram. All my followers won't mind hearing from me three times in a day - after...

The Vulcan Thought They Left Out of Star Trek

Posted 05-28-2017 at 06:22 AM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Saying a person can be devoted to multiple religions at the same time is highly illogical. That's like saying you can be both a staunch Republican and a staunch Democrat at the same time. You can be a moderate and still hold to pieces of both ideologies, but if you hold strongly to the beliefs of one party, you are by definition diametrically opposed to the beliefs of the other. You can't simultaneously vote for two political candidates in opposite parties running for the same office.

Tonight I got out my notebook and started to write a poem about how I didn't know how to write this poem, but then I ended up writing the original poem, so... Yeah. This poem is about an experience I had on Saturday when I was out walking and took a detour through a small, mostly empty parking garage (detour may not be the right word, since it was more like deliberate wandering, complete with random photos of the top level for no reason besides personal amusement, but I digress). At first I didn't...

Sky's the Limit

Here's a sort-of-poem I wrote a few days ago, after watching Blue Tornado and also thinking about how people try to fit everything into neat little boxes because they can't deal with physical complexities beyond number and a spiritual realm beyond understanding. I'm going to post it before I put my notebook away and forget.


They say the sky's the limit.

They're wrong.

How can you hope to count the stars
when each human being...
