Why does the scientist
Stay so in patient fidelity
Waiting for results to crash parallel
To predictions and understanding-
Experiment after experiment
After experiment?
Simply because “I won’t give up,
On the pursuit that I
Love, love, love. ”

I have always been amazed learning about the scientists who spent their lives creating theories of atoms, space, evolution… Because our understanding of these topics today come from a collective pool of works that was gained experiment after experiment, day by day. Taking chemistry, I already have an idea about how tedious lab work can be, but I am only learning –  cannot imagine the hard work and devotion it took to BUILD biology, chemistry, and physics. 

The random playlist I took song titles is called “Rainy Café Windows” by Songza (which is an awesome app that plays free music that fits your moods).

The songs are:
Crash Parallel by Rain Delays
The Scientist by Coldplay
I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz
Fidelity by Regina Spektor
Love Love Love by Of Monsters and Men

Hello (NapoWriMo #17)

The only person you should try to be better than… is the person you were yesterday.

I am ecstatic you have returned again
My inspiration, my friend.
Maybe you can dispel this cloud of fear,
Would you like a cup of tea, my dear?

There is a person in each person’s life
Strong in joy, and grief, and strife
Determined and free-spirited in every respect
How can anyone be that close to perfect?

A person that everyone can look up to
I want to grow and become more like you
Work will let this dream be
Then I finally see
That I am you. And that person is me.

As Whitney says, “Learning to love yourself, that is the greatest love of all.”

And in one of my favourite quotes from the movie Wreck-it-Ralph, Bad-Anon’s motto: “I’m bad, and that’s good. I will never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.”
