I don’t know what I’m doing.
I’m so tired.
I hope that I’m not making a big mistake. I’m living one day at a time.
In many ways I have been all along. But on other ways I have not.
Perhaps it’s just a matter of bringing them in sync. Is it that there’s only one way to live? Or perhaps you need a dichotomy, like night and day?
Do you even really need a night and day? That only happens because the planet is spinning as it circles around a star. Night and day is not necessarily a requirement for existence, but it is perhaps, for life. But nevertheless, we certainly evolved to have two distinct cycles characterized by night and day.
But I find myself wanting my days to be longer, and my nights shorter. So many things that I want to do.
But I also do like to sleep,
when I wake up it is painful, my mornings are filled with pain, physical pain, and congestion, dry mouth and crusty eyes. And sometimes my dreams are interesting, when I can remember them.
I should start a dream journal, maybe just blog it this time.
We all know that the Earth rotates beneath our feet, but new research from ANU has revealed that the centre of the Earth is out of sync with the rest of the planet, frequently speeding up and slowing down.
Associate Professor Hrvoje Tkalcic from the ANU College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences and his team used earthquake doublets to measure the rotation speed of Earth’s inner core over the last 50 years.
They discovered that not only did the inner core rotate at a different rate to the mantle – the layer between the core and the crust that makes up most of the planet’s interior – but its rotation speed was variable.
all of my blog is just that, first drafts of the history of my life
Sparky had to write a diamanté poem for homework today.
I helped and suggested he write about his momma
Also. I learned what a participle is.
Jusky, yeah totally. Those are the two main themes, but there are a couple of underlining themes in the movie that also struck me
- Dads that naively living thinking that they are doing right by their kids when it turns out they’re not
- sad people turning to the interwebz for solace and support
- cyber bully being driven by his own pain and sorrow
- blurred lines between exploiters and exploitees
- risks associated with oversharing
Coming out of the theater, I felt like perhaps having come of age during the dawn of the internet, that I have been naive in thinking that I have done a good job of insulating myself from the threat of cyberbullying and theft. In any case, it is something that requires constant vigilance. And also, that I need to be sure to not only teach my kids well, but to be connected to who they really are, not some fantasy of who I want them to be or just seeing some kind of distorted reflection of myself in them.
The movie is a bit cliche, but good at starting this conversation within myself.
Thanks for the reply!
Go see this movie - Disconnect. The wife and I saw it last night.
There’s this one quote, that totally made me want to delete all my accounts, actually it was the whole movie.
During the movie, I started freaking out about all the links I had clicked and shared earlier in the day, and my tumblr that my wife doesn’t know about, and my kids growing up on the internet, and minecraft and youtube and all our credit cards and everything. Mentally disturbing.
Plus before the movie, we went to one of those pay by the ounce frozen yogurt places where you load up on ice cream and toppings and the movie is partly shot in shaky cam mode which started making me feel queasy and headache. So physically disturbing too.
I’m sure that was the director’s intent. Accomplished.
Highly recommended, but this just might be my last post ever.
Happy Mother’s Day

Mathnet, Mathman, and Square One TV were my favorite tv shows growing up!
