Acts of Kindness in Honor of Sandy Hook

This morning, as I was waiting for the Starbucks barista to finish making my latte, I saw an elderly woman struggle to dig in her purse for money to pay for both her and her little granddaughter’s coffees. I walked over to the cashier, handed her a $10, and told her to keep the change. We then walked over to the pickup area where the grandmother thanked me and asked me why I did that. I told her that if everyone did one little thing here and there for someone, the world would be a much better place. I told her I was from CT and today marks the one year anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy. Although people get caught up in their busy lives, something I know I certainly do, taking a step back to realize how one single act of kindness can make someone’s day is something we often overlook but should keep in mind. To my surprise, the now teary eyed grandmother hugged me, told me they had just come from a wake for a family friend, and said that my generation is surprising her more and more every day.

Take a moment today to remember and honor the 26 victims of Sandy Hook. Whether it’s 26 acts or just one, every gesture can better the life of another. So buy the coffee for the person waiting in line behind you. Bring a sandwich to the homeless man on the street. Write a letter to a soldier overseas. Shovel the driveway for your elderly neighbor. Bake cookies and bring them to a local shelter or hospital. Everyone is fighting their own battles and you have no idea just how great of an effect a small gesture can impact the lives of another.

R.I.P. to the victims of the December 14th, 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy. You will never be forgotten. In memory of;

I finally found something I’ve always wanted—always needed, and it’s being stripped away from me in less than 5 days. 

The Old Astronomer to His Pupil, Tycho Brahe

Reach me down my Tycho Brahe, I would know him when we meet,
When I share my later science, sitting humbly at his feet;
He may know the law of all things, yet be ignorant of how
We are working to completion, working on from then to now.

Pray remember that I leave you all my theory complete,
Lacking only certain data for your adding, as is meet,
And remember men will scorn it, ‘tis original and true,
And the obliquy of newness may fall bitterly on you.

But, my pupil, as my pupil you have learned the worth of scorn,
You have laughed with me at pity, we have joyed to be forlorn,
What for us are all distractions of men’s fellowship and smiles;
What for us the Goddess Pleasure with her meretricious smiles.

You may tell that German College that their honor comes too late,
But they must not waste repentance on the grizzly savant’s fate.
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Love vs. Infatuation

Love and Infatuation are both intense emotions that one feels for another person. These feelings are most often confused for each other by many people. But the two feelings differ in their actuality of love, intensity and final outcome.

Infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoning passion or love; addictive love. Infatuation usually occurs at the beginning of relationship when sexual attraction is central. Love can be described as feeling of intense affection for another person. It is most often talked about as an emotion between two persons. Hence is also sometimes referred to as interpersonal love.

So is it possible to fall in love quickly, say, in a matter of weeks? Or is it just being completely blown away that you’ve found someone so similar to yourself, someone whose interests and values match your own perfectly that it’s too hard to describe what you feel? Perhaps no matter the label, it is some sort of love, and that in its own respect, is something special.

I don’t know how to put this, but i’m kind of a big deal. People know me. I have many leather bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

Fucking control freaks…

Blind man walks into a bar and after standing still for a moment, the man grabs his seeing eye dog by the hind legs and spins the canine around in circles.

The bartender asks the man, “Jeez, what are you doing!?”

Still spinning the dog, the blind man says, “Oh don’t mind me, just taking a quick look around.”

Shakespeare insults lol
