My Philosophy of Life:
Everybody has a philosophy of life. Identify some fo the foundation beliefs that form your philosophy of life, using suggested questions as a guide. Express your ideas as completely and clearly as you can. Encourage yourself to think deeply and beyond superficialities, to refuse to be satisfied with the first idea that you have, to move to deeper levels.
What do you most value in life? Why?
Are you a person who would be willing to die (like Socrates) defending your
principles and views on life and society?
What gives your life meaning?
what is the purpose of your life?
what do you hope to achieve in your life? 

My (rather wordy and lengthy) AnswerCollapse )

I'm going to attempt to post my answers to the discussion questions of my philosophy class here (assuming I don't get dropped from it tomorow for my blatant stupidity in forgetting I was enrolled in the class and the complete lack of information when it comes to not having the first two modules done and therefore getting dropped from the class entirely >_> AHem.)

Anyhow, here is question one and my answer for the discussion.

In what way Plato's Analogy of the Cave can be applied to our modern reality? What is the meaning of Plato's Analogy of the Cave? What did Plato mean by the term"Perpetual Prisoners"?

My Answer....Collapse )

A Badly Needed Lesson

Dear writers,
There's no way it's "reign his temper in."

from dictionary.com

reign-noun

1. the period during which a sovereign occupies the throne.
2. royal rule or authority; sovereignty.
3. dominating power or influence: the reign of law.
–verb (used without object)
4. to possess or exercise sovereign power or authority.
5. to hold the position and name of sovereign without exercising the ruling power.
6. to have control, rule, or influence of any kind.
7. to predominate; be prevalent.

To be able to use that word in that kind of setting, you have to use it in a way that demonstrates having authority over your temper.  For example. "My coworker reigned her temper in difficult situations the way the fat bitch in the staff room reigns the last cupcake in the box."


Rein–noun

 

1. Often, reins. a leather strap, fastened to each end of the bit of a bridle, by which the rider or driver controls a horse or other animal by pulling so as to exert pressure on the bit.
2. any of certain other straps or thongs forming part of a harness, as a checkrein.
3. any means of curbing, controlling, or directing; check; restraint.
4. reins, the controlling or directing power: the reins of government.
–verb (used with object)
5. to check or guide (a horse or other animal) by exerting pressure on a bridle bit by means of the reins.
6. to curb; restrain; control.
–verb (used without object)
7. to obey the reins: a horse that reins well.
8. to rein a horse or other animal.
—Idioms
9. draw rein, to curtail one's speed or progress; halt: The rider saw the snake and drew rein sharply.
10. give rein to, to give complete freedom to; indulge freely: to give rein to one's imagination. Also, give free rein to, give full rein to.


To be able to use that word in that kind of setting, you have to use it in a way that it's an action applied to the emotion. "Matt reined in his temper carefully before he went apeshit over the fat bitch reigning over the last cupcake."

My writing, can now be found either listed on my userinfo or at Angel Dust, my sparkly new fic journal!

I will be gradually transferring everything there over a period of time. Entries will still be in this journal but there will not be links to them on my userinfo here.

As of now, all Avenged Sevenfold stories posted in 2006 are there, I plan on transferring the rest over in the next couple of days. ^_^

There actually will be a few bits and pieces new over there that have never been put up online to the public before!

Well shit, Nebraska.
At around 4:30 we heard that in Fremont (maybe an hour west of us) there was an ugly storm forming, and that while there wasn't the rotation to develope a tornado, the straight-line winds could be bad. I couldn't help but turn to my coworker who was on break with me that we'd be herding all four of our floors worth of patrons and staff into the basement in twenty minutes.
Sure enough, fifteen minutes later we're telling people to sign off computers, round up their kids and head downstairs. The creepiest bit was that right up til it hit it went completely dead and stayed sunny right up...when the sirens went off. It's weird to have tornado sirens go off in bright daylight (the more cynical of us joked about air raids, since we're right by Offut Air Force Base, and this is wherethey stick the vice president if there's any sort of large-scale terror attack), and extremely eerie with completely dead, humid hair. Turns out...less than five minutes later it's so dark the streetlights seemed to be turned on...but visiblity was so limited we couldn't even see the cars in the parking lot.
Ankle deep hail in some places, windows shattered in others, 120,000 people without power...including street lights, trees torn up by their roots...I even heard a story about a boat that gotthrown up on the roof, and another house had four major trees thrown into it and over his truck.
Good grief.
