Society, College, and Cookies

2.5.13-College-Graduation-StudentsCollege…is a place where students go to almost directly after high-school, to better their education in a field or practice that would make them certified for a job, or career, and eventually earn enough of an income that would cushion them for the rest of their lives. That’s a simple definition that I, and other high-scholars, college students, teachers, and parents, have.

An astrophysicist is a scientist that looks up into the stars. It doesn’t matter when, or where. The stars were mystifying at night. So beautiful, so many things to constantly count. Until one day, those stars went dark.

When Stephen Hawking was born, he was a visionary. Sure, the kids picked on him, called him a nerd. In fact, it didn’t bother him at all. For he had a dream in his head that he couldn’t stop seeing. When you dream, anything is possible in your head. You imagine things, daydream, and the ideas simply come to life.

I’m a writer. Not that it matters, but just like Stephen Hawking, I had a dream. One thing we have in common is that we are extremely shy people. You’ve seen those nerds before. Always wearing black, making ugly faces, but no one knew that someone out there was secretly, secretly judging them. Jealously? Hah! I think not.

A raging, deadly war is beginning between the two most powerful fire nations the globe has ever seen, and there is nothing to stop the devastation.

There’s also a book already completed:

If you love learning about science and be fascinated by realistic, 3D animated images of space and the microscopic world, this is the show for you. It is on Netflix, and comes on ABC.

Join astophysicist Nail deGrasse Tyson on a journey through history, space, and time. Answering questions about what came to be, how it came to be, and what may come in the future, through stories of humankind’s quest to answer scientific questions with no easy answers. Enter the unknown realm as you explore galaxies right on your couch, witness historical scientific breakthroughs, and gaze at the beauty that is the universe.

I was awed from the first five seconds into this movie-like show. The images are mesmerizing, detailed animations of epic stars, planets, galaxies, and the like, and the soundtrack is so like Seth MacFarlane–orchestrial music will send shivers down your spine. If I could give this a 6 out of 5 stars, I would, because a 5 out of 5 wouldn’t be enough. This is truly a masterpiece.

Happy 2018!

I’m sure 2017 wasn’t the best for many of us. Perhaps for others it was the best year they’ve ever had, whether it was good financially, socially, or spiritually.

However your 2017 was, hopefully 2018 will be even better–and it will be better. Make sure your new-year resolutions aren’t too crazy. Baby-steps, baby-steps! Enjoy your time with family, friends, or alone (whether you’re glad to be alone or not), and have a fantastic new year!
