If this isn’t an appropriate topic to revive my blog with, I don’t know what is. An update is in order I think. I’ve graduated HCC with an Associates in Science and I’m now going to the University of Houston with am Environmental Science major and three minors: Mathematics, Geology, and Energy and Sustainability. 5 Years ago I never would have thought I’d be here, but here I am and I’m owning every thing I do, and trying 100% on everything.
So my great grandmother Anne passed away this morning and its had me thinking about my relationship with my mom’s family. There have been many problems over the years and I’ve always wanted a closer relationship with my cousins and I’m not really sure why we don’t talk as much as we should.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
This one stumped me for a little bit, so I went to dictionary.com and looked up Ambiguity to get a better definition and I found one that I like: the possibility of interpreting an expression in two or more distinct ways. So basically respect the fact that others have a different way of thinking about things than you do. It turns out I’ve been thinking about this one a lot recently and it is kind of nice that it is an Adult Principle.
Today was a good but VERY clumsy day. I’ve accidentally thrown my lighter across the room, knocked over a can of Coke onto my English book and I’ve tripped over myself several times. On the good note though, my awesome boyfriend got me a new pair of shoes, my English test deadline has been extended for 24 hours, and I feel pretty confident about how I did on the History test.
So while I was doing my English assignment, I came across these “Adult Principles” by John Perry Barlow. I thought, hey maybe this is that “how to” book I’ve been looking for. Maybe I should do a blog per principle? That would be fun I think. Anyway, we’ll see where this goes. For now, I’ll bold the ones I really like.
