What is weird?

So, I promised a post, and seeing as I will be spending 4-6 hours in a wheeled metal box traveling north at about twelve times the speed at which I can run on Sunday, and have other plans for Saturday, I figure now is as good a time as any. I’ve gotten into watching Ze Frank on YouTube. This is about the former, specifically a video entitled “Breaking Normal” where he talks about how otherwise normal things can be made so seem really weird when you describe them as accurately as possible without using the name of that thing. For instance, I am, right now, sitting on a white cushioned platform suspended approximately one and a half feet off the ground by four wooden posts. There is a wooden board attached to the platform such that I can recline at an angle of about 15 degrees from a vertical position, and there is another, uncushioned, wooden platform, wider and longer than the cushioned platform, suspended about two and a half feet off the ground by four more, slightly larger, wooden posts. The inside of the large uncushioned platform has a metal linkage so that, when the two ends of the platform are pulled apart, a gap can be opened in the middle of the platform so a slab of wood can be inserted or removed to change the length of the platform. So, when you really think about it, a table and chair can be weird…

Have a great spring.

The Quarter System, and My Return

So, part of the reason why I’ve ceased posting updates is college. Anyone who’s been in college will understand that it can be tough at times, especially with my case. I stopped posting updates around the same time finals were (the university I attend is on a quarter system so fall quarter was ending), and because I was consistently either missing or skipping posts that should have been up. Anyway, in my current situation, I have to take 19 credits next quarter, spring quarter, to get on track with my desired major.

Anyone who is watching will find a new post or two over spring break, which for me is in a couple of weeks and lasts a week, and I will be posting bi-weekly (Sundays and Wednesdays?) over my summer break.

Again, stay warm, stay safe, and stay awesome.

-Wesley
