Picture of Myself

Day 29 - Picture of yourself

Okay, just for you few special people who read this, here is probably the best selfie I've taken this year:

Thank you universe for coming together to create this picture I feel pretty good about. This was after my final presentation for the spring semester, so I had made a bit of an effort on my appearance was feeling confident after my group's successful finish.

Also this is commemorating how good my bangs looked two months ago because it is now far from that.

11:11 Wishes

Day 28 - Do you wish for anything at 11:11? If so, what do you wish for?

At 11:11 this morning I actually saw the clock and wished that I was posting this at exactly that moment.

But anyway, in today's edition of deconstructing the question, I have three approaches to this:

1. I don't think these kinds of wishes are real so it doesn't really matter.

2. It's sometimes more fun to pretend about stuff like that.

3. If they were real, you'd have to be really careful what you wish for because you have no idea of the implications it might have.

When you take these into account, I would basically wish for something like to notice when the clock says 12:34 because that's really cool.

Dogs and other small fluffy animals


Hand holding


Knowing someone thought of you

Familiar music

I realize that's only four things. But my mind has gone blank. And anyway,

Would I Rather Date...

Day 25 - Would you rather date someone plain with an amazing personality or someone beautiful with a plain personality?

Well. Time to get philosophical.

What is a plain personality? Someone might seem superficial or disingenuous, but surely there is something underneath. The question there, is do they feel they can be themselves. And what is an amazing personality compared to a plain one? Do they simply fall into more extremes on scales of personality traits? I don't think it's a bad thing to kind of be in the middle. As long as our personalities are compatible and they have the qualities I'm looking for in a date, I think anything would be fine.

And as for looks, I generally find their inner self is what makes them beautiful.

Things That Cross My Mind

Day 24 - Seven things that cross your mind a lot

1. That sounds like a good opportunity for a pun. Or this line from Cabin Pressure. Actually there are two Cabin Pressure references that fit, which one should I use, or both?

2. Food.

3. Isn't there school I should be doing? Am I doing enough? What is that later assignment going to be like? Will I graduate? Has anyone replied to my discussion post?

4. I'm so tired. I wonder if I'm feeling other things right now. Who knows.

5. My friends <3 They are so lovely and I miss them. I hope they're okay and I should talk to them soon.

6. I wonder how my detectives are doing. That thing they said, what does it mean for other things? Are they happy? I wish I could give them a hug...

7. What the heck day is it.

A Letter to PBS

Day 23 - A letter to someone. Anyone.

I give "C" as the letter of the day to Cookie Monster!

Okay but that actually gives me an idea.

Dear PBS,

Thanks for being my channel pretty much forever. You're almost all I watched when I was little, and you're even airing my new favorite shows now. So that's pretty cool.

Barney, Arthur, Dragon Tales, Big Comfy Couch, others I'm probably forgetting, those were all really fun and probably develop social skills for kids. So I salute you. And Mr. Rogers of course, with talking about feelings and imagination and how stuff is made and feeding the fish.

Even though I don't remember them well, Wishbone, Bill Nye, and Reading Rainbow exposed me to stuff I would build on later.

Liberty's Kids got me interested in history in a major way, and helped tremendously in school. I still love it.

Fetch with Ruff Ruffman had me totally captivated and I learned a lot of weird facts from that too.

That was probably the last thing I actively followed from PBS Kids - now I've moved to Masterpiece Mystery. Well, like three shows. And a couple more that have already ended. I'm so glad you play these mysteries so I don't have to wait for them to be on BBC America and then finally on dvd like a year and a half after they first air and everyone watches them.

But hey. These cut-down versions you air. I know you probably have to do it because of time slots and no commercials but. How come the Sherlock cuts were fine but on Endeavour some cuts are important to the characters! Mrs. Thursday and Monica are important! And they help us understand DS Thursday and Morse better.

But really, you've played a bunch of wonderful shows that have shaped my life for the better, so it wasn't all mindless TV watching.

Now if you could just calm down your pledge drives somehow...
