Small Car

Well, as you can guess from my previous posts, there was a little (*Ahem*) “accident” with the new car. Through a mis-judgment of the spacial vortex that is known as a Getty Mart parking lot, as I rounded the corner of the gas pumps, a metal pole sprang up out of nowhere and attacked the rear passenger door. (Very) Long story short, we had to drop the new car off at the collision center for repairs to the tune of a very expensive fix.

The Dichotomy of Change and Continuity

Change Ahead

It’s quite the dichotomy: As humans (just like all other animals), we need continuity, structure, discipline, and routine, though we crave constant change. “If everything was always the same,” we tell ourselves, “it would drive me crazy!” Yet when thing are constantly in flux, we’re just not equipped to keep up with it all the time. Instead, against our own reasoning, we find a sense of sanity in the mundane and routine. I often think of Cesar Milan (The Dog Whisperer) when life changes come up, stressing how important it is for “rules, boundaries, and limitations” in a dog’s life in order to have a healthy (and sane) existence without mauling someone’s face off. Apparently, we need those same “rules, boundaries, and limitations” in our lives to keep things balanced, while we are constantly bombarded with changes that pop up in our daily routines. It’s amazing there haven’t been more Zombie attacks with people mauling someone’s face off than there have been.

I can’t even keep up with Random Thoughts! More

John Trumbull's "Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776"

I realize most everyone from the United States is going to be busy at this time with the National 4th of July Holiday. For those of you who are reading outside of the United States, the 4th of July is a very patriotic holiday marking the day of independence. It’s also known as Independence Day, and draws many people from around the country (and even the world) to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where it all began. This great and solemn patriotic holiday is celebrated as every great, solemn federal holiday. It’s celebrated by drinking and eating until you puke.
