Happy Monday! I hope your day got off to a flying start and you’ve been working hard – if not, don’t worry I’ve been pretty lazy lately too (in the sense that I’ve been reading books instead of doing homework and assignments…what a nerd). Nevertheless, today I participated in a space workshop, organised by Sci Art Exchange, where I was able to meet the lovely (former NASA employee) Dr Jancy McPhee and think about the ways in which science, coupled with art, can create amazing innovations.
I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve finally had the time to write the next post in this series. Sorry for the slow start… I know I’ve been a bit too enthusiastic with my announcement of this series (and the L2D series*). Anyway, enough with the excuses and apologies, let’s get straight to it and meet…
Welcome, or welcome back! As always, I want to ask for your advice so get your thinking caps on. I wouldn’t say that I’m the most creative person out there, so I thought I’d use this blog post to try to tap into your imagination. The advice is actually regarding a diary I purchased a couple of days ago…
The name of this post is some advice I’d urge you to take. In actual fact, we can try something new together. When I say ‘something new’, I mean anything that you’ve always wanted to do or try out, but you’ve been unable to do. Now (yes, right now), I’m giving you the opportunity to do this activity, whatever it may be because I think that the longer you make up excuses, the more you could be missing out on something extremely meaningful and worthwhile.
I know I’ve been writing loads of philosophical posts about my thoughts which may be boring to some of you; I can’t blame you because I did say that after my blog’s ‘revamp’ I would try to cover a variety of topics which cater to everyone’s tastes. You’ll be happy to know that this post is actually going to consist of an assignment that I had to do at school a couple of years ago (nothing to do with philosophy, don’t worry). I tweaked it a bit to adapt some of the dates to 2017 (I think I wrote it in 2014 so some of the time periods were incorrect/outdated), but regardless, the aim of the assignment remains the same. The goal was to persuade the reader to engage in, or get excited about my passion/hobby. I never really tested it out on people, only my teacher set eyes on this piece, so despite all of her praise of me in the past (which I think was mostly undeserved), I wonder if I actually completed the task well… Anyway, you can let me know!
Hi there! I thought I’d upload a (kind of) short post on an issue that has recently caught my attention: lack of purpose. I’ve noticed that many people live their lives without an underlying purpose with which they are able to motivate themselves every day. Personally, I don’t understand how an individual could have a fulfilling and satisfied life without this greater sense of inspiration and reason to live. Therefore, in this post, I’m going to outline my purpose in life as well as other thoughts on purpose in general.
Well, well, well… I said I wouldn’t post in a while, but here I am. This isn’t actually a ‘proper’ post, it’s more like an introduction, or an explanation, of yet another series which I’m keen to start on BlueFishh called, as you’ve probably guessed from the title of this post, ‘Learning to Drive: An Engineer’s Perspective’ (I think that this name is too long for me to keep typing, so from now on I’m going to refer to it as ‘L2D’).
