What is a fun fact that you would like to share for no apparent reason what so ever?

The big red spot on Jupiter, the one that is twice the size of Earth is disappearing. Despite existing since human's have had telescopes to look (over 400 years) scientist currently think it may cease to exist in the next 20 years. It is kind of odd to think about Jupiter without it's spot.

If you could teleport, where would you go?

California seems nice. Though it would be nice to go to Australia and miss out on that really long flight.... Still I think California would be the best. In a world full of darkness and beauty I would like to travel where I could appreciate it with another. Maybe I could watch one of those beautiful sunsets from a beach or a mountain out there. Maybe both.... ☺

Why does Yemen wanna block access to YouTube?

Mostly to control the information, limit communication, and decrease exposure to other ways of life. They can't control what people put and share on social sites. Shutting down social sites makes it harder for independent opinions to be share. It makes it harder for people going against them to communicate. It also prevents people from seeing what they are missing out on under strict governance. Knowledge is power and for those trying to seize or hold onto power limiting your opponents resources and knowledge is a tactic often used.

When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?

When I left this morning look in the mirror and thought, "You may have to deal with stupid today at work but at least you have mastered not show it on your face." I made it home after the day proceed slightly dumber then anticipated and received more work messages containing even more stupid! I think I need alcohol. Large amounts of alcohol. Sometimes I wonder what is wrong with the world and more specifically my work. They are so far from having their ducks in a row that I am unsure if they can even find any of their ducks!

What's the way out of labyrinth of troubles??

Forward. The way out of any labyrinth is to face it. That means facing the troubles and addressing them. Find if not a solution then at least a resolution you can move forward with. Because the only way out is through.
On another note, the solution to a traditional yet large labyrinth is to put your hand out and touch one of the walls. Follow the wall around dead ends and corners till it leads you out. The key is to not get frustrated, finding dead ends is part of the process, still follow the path as it turns in its many directions to find the way out. Just like in life when facing troubles you often have to make many turns, and keep trying to find the way out.

How does the Internet influence your life?

I think the news has progressively became more opinion as people use the internet more. I think my opinion of news has been lowered by the internet. It makes it easier to look up closing times for stores though . I don't really concern myself with what is trending online or what's hot. I like what I like. I probably find more musicians I like and explore more genres that I wouldn't otherwise. It has probably helped my grammar and sentence structure some, that and grad school. At times I want to send corrections to the news sites. I know they rush, but it looks so unprofessional when they publish something with a handful of obvious errors. It changed the way I plan vacations. It has helped me learn how to do things, like fix a pipe clogged by a bottle cap. It is a great resource when you are looking up details on how to like that. It cuts the trial and error down a lot. For day to day life I see it as a tool to make life easier, but on the things I need and like it real has limited bearing for the most part.
On other things, work has been crazy but it should be sorted soon. Got a preview of what my regular schedule will be, looks like I am getting 4 day weekends ever other weekend which will be nice. I am just happy for the moment to be off for this weekend. I just need a couple days to relax!

If you could wish for something more important than anything else you could have wished for that you truly desire what would it be???

I have debated this answer in my head for a bit now, because it is how I really feel and yet for it to be the one thing I truly wants scares me. Not sure when it became more important than everything else but really there is only one answer. I would wish for you to truly be my soul mate. For us to work things out so that we can start our crazy life together. For us to start on the path to make our own family and make choices together. Find a way to make our two lives one great life. A life that we enjoy, in which we explore our dreams, just chill together, and support each other. Everything else just feels so insubstantial like the wind or a shadow. Neither can hold you, at least for any real time, and both are gone without a trace once the clock moves forward. I want to make this something real that wether the clock, calendar, or the world changes it is as solid as spider silk and meteorites.

The best movie for you is...?

Love "the Count of Monte Cristo," best movie ever. It is one of the few movies that are better than the book and the book was considered a masterpiece. Great characters, excellent lines, real good introduction of characters, love, revenge, and what is important in life. The most common complaint is it is very slow at the start while they build the back story, but everything has a point and it comes together so poetically, even the insults.

How you created your squad? Have any tips on how to create your own community?

I think I just gravitate to people who treat everyone with respect, show compassion, and I can have a good conversation with. I think most other things fall into place after that. With work friends it is not necessarily about who does the most but who genuinely puts in the most effort, being good are at least decent helps. It is really hard to be work friends in a high stress job like mine with someone who has a poor work ethic. For non-work friends, I think interesting conversation and consideration are good starting points. Once you start trying to be friends shared experiences make you tighter. When rough patches come up you see how people really are. You see who has your back and will help you when you are down and who suddenly becomes deaf and blind. Positive interaction start a squad, bad days however make a squad. I would build my community with people who genuinely cared and tried thier best. People who stand up for one another and help when they can. People who don't feel the need to judge but help fix what is broken. People who want to enjoy the world together.
